Do You Love …… Most Annoying.

Do-you-love-your-mother

Every now and then, Facebook posts ask to share posts asking :

Do You Love Your Mother?
Do You Love Your Father?
Do You Love Your Wife?
Do You Love Your Daughter?

And those posts go on to tell you to share if you answer yes.

I am always flummoxed because I don’t have any of these four in my life.

Why can’t people ask properly using the correct tense?

Or, is it that people who post these are totally insensitive to people like me?

    I suppose the dark side of me wants the opposite of those questions which I never share or pass on. I particularly despise the ‘ share if you dislike cancer’ or whatever disease of the week. I do believe any participation in FB should optional, I hate being told what to do. Especially the saddo posts from people about no one caring for them if they don’t share. Seriously.

  2. I still love my mother and father even though they passed away years ago. I don’t have a wife, and I love my daughter. Not much new there.

    Some of these ‘share’ offerings are an underhand way to to leave traces and and collect information on where the items land etc.

    I hate those “share this if…” damn things!

    Seems a new one of those things pops up every day and they all, for the most part, are intended to use intimidation and guilt to motivate their readers. Still others use them to promote their self-righteousness.

    If I find one too irritating or annoying I immediately ‘hide’ it so I no longer have to look at it! 😕

    These people are probably not insensitive. They just don’t stop and think before they ask the question.

    Talk about your beloved synchronicity, Ramana. Only the other day I was in two minds which ‘tense’ to use with reference to my grandmother. The past tense because she has been long dead – or the present tense. I decided for the present tense because, no matter how dead she is – rotted to her skeleton, i LOVE her.

    And I hope that once I am out of the picture my son will say that he loves me. Even if it’s all in the past.

    Just read all the other comments. Which I should have done first except they didn’t show up on my screen until now.

    As to that most annoying “sharing” it’s an Americanism. One I hesitate to hold against Americans. But, yes, it does sound a little hollow.

    I do agree with Alan’s and Grannymar’s – sharp as her needle – comments. There is fishing going on. “Thanks for sharing” as insincere as “have a good day”.

    I love my mother more now that she is gone. There were times I didn’t love her that much. Always loved my father. I’m sharing but rather not be ASKED to share.

  10. Even with the correct tense, I hate them. They are manipulative. I’m not going to be bullied into sharing a post to prove how I feel about someone.

    I do not like such questions either for similar reasons. I think, however, that it is good to ask oneself questions about love in our lives. And maybe find people and things to love.

  12. Facebook already has too much information about us. Time to ignore thes – just as I ignore the uber patriotic, religious junk of the same type. Anyone that really knows me kbnows the answers to these questions and if they do not know me well enough to lnow the answers it is intentional on my part. nuff said.

  13. I find these post annoying for a totally different reason. They always fall into the “trapped response” category for me. “When did you stop beating your wife?” That sort of question that make one seem insensitive if they don’t share or answer. I find myself categorically refusing to respond to any “canned” questions. Of course, it is a totally internal process and I suppose no one notices my resistance…but there you are; much suffering is self-induced and I am good at it.

    all these hit ‘like’ if you agree, ‘share’ if you love are to ignored unless they are genuinely interesting posts in themselves
