This might just be me, but since OP said they acted quickly, I think they put out the fire before the mother noticed, who knows, it could've been the back of her shirt.

That's extreme... if OP didn't act when (s)he did, their Mom could have been left with life changing injuries, or at least scars that she'll have forever. Her reaction was immature, ungrateful and juvenile, and for that I'd say OP should tell her off for it, but her life was basically saved.

Once almost every comment says "let her burn next time" it stops being funny. People are actually reccomending letting the mother burn next time. I thought it was funny first time i saw it but as you scroll down you see the same thing. Thats when it stops being funny.

So what you're saying is that OP's mother should burn, giving her severe and horrible burns? Also something she has to live with for probably the rest of her life? Yes, OP's mother is ungrateful but that's beside the point. I wouldn't wish that upon anyone.

#77 If OP's mom acted like that ever since OP was born, then it's very likely she gave OP some emotional scars, because the way OP's mom acted here was technically abuse. And even if not, verbal abuse would be very likely. I can't say for certain that the mom here always acts like this, but if she did, then yeah, it's likely. And also, mental/emotional abuse could very easily lead to physical abuse, which COULD leave physical scars. And emotional/mental scars could be argued to be worse than physical scars as well.
Now, again, this is all speculating OP's mom is always like this and I acknowledge this may not be the case, but we can't rule out the possibility.
