AITA for leaving a repairman a bad review for flirting with my wife? by fenderscore in AmItheAsshole

Well if he had worded it any different, it wouldn’t have attracted so much attention

AITA For not buying my daughter new glasses? by Substantial-Orange10 in AmItheAsshole

She’d probably purposefully buy the daughter ugly ones as a punishment, or just not replace them at all

Not swallowed at all, I’m reading every comment. I’m so so happy to know this post is helping people think of this before it’s too late, I never thought in a million years so many people would relate

Apparently there are even a crap ton of people who get super angry when told that your loved ones will be sad with no pictures of you

Yeah I don’t understand why people are getting so angry about this. I’m just trying to remind people how their loved ones will feel if they aren’t left with pictures. If you understand that and are okay with it, you’re well within your right to still choose not to take pictures—I didn’t make post this for you to feel guilty. I posted this for people who may not have thought of things that way and genuinely want to leave their loved ones with photos before it’s too late

Oh wow! Well I suggest posting what you can remember about it on r/TipOfMyTongue. They’re pretty sleuthy over there and can find even the most unknown and forgotten things!

I’m so sorry :( I also know that feeling, I had a voicemail from her from about a week before her death that I hadn’t listened to, and I saved it for months because I never could bring myself to do it. By the time I went to listen, the voicemail had already gotten automatically deleted. That one stung 😔

You absolutely need to do whatever is best for you and your mental health! Don’t feel guilty if you aren’t there yet, you’re trying and that’s all that matters. Good luck!

This is such a great idea! When you can’t see the photos yourself, you can’t feel self-conscious of them. I have to imagine it feels so freeing, I actually may try this!

Thank you, you as well.

This is exactly our problem too. We have school photos, baby photos, but no photos of her as our mom. It’s hard to reconcile the two completely different images

Oh that’s terrible. Maybe some master editing expert can help you remove it??

And yes we did ask around but unfortunately she was quite the expert herself at avoiding all pictures

That’s awful! Do you think there’s any way you could send a message to someone at HBO to see if the footage still exists somewhere? Obviously I have no idea what I’m talking about but ugh that just sucks, I’m sorry :(

Yep I know the feeling! We actually had to use her license picture for the memorial card. I’m so sorry for your loss but even without the pictures, you WILL always remember her

I’m so sorry for your losses. You are doing your loved ones such a kindness by putting aside your feelings to ensure they are able to have pictures of you after you pass

Just think about how when you look at pictures of your loved ones, are you focusing on flaws, do you even see them? Or do you just see someone you love? It’s the same for your loved ones, I promise you!

I feel it’s something people tend to not think of, even us growing up we just thought it was a funny quirk of hers, we didn’t consider that it meant having no pictures of her after she is gone. It’s never too late to start though so I’m happy you plan to!!
