    An interesting story I was told was written on facebook which I wanted to share here

    Once a mother had an eye disease which turned her blind.
    Son - I will search throughout the city for the best doctor to cure you.
    Mother - What if you dont find one?
    Son - I will search for the best doctor throughout the world to cure you my mother.
    Mother - What if you dont find one?
    Son - Then I will serve you for the rest of your life as you walk, eat and sleep.
    Mother - Do you know what I would have done if you had the disease and I didnt?
    Son - No mother, what would you have done?
    Mother - I would have given you my eyes.

    "Oh that's okay then, go out and roam the world with your two working eyes. Leave me here in the dark. It's no biggie. I mean, I would have given you my eyes if you needed them but I don't suppose I should expect the same in return. I mean I only gave birth to you, you ungrateful little ass. But that's okay. You go off and have your little romp. No pressure."

    Son - Oh great! If you can do so now, I can finally that PS Vita i have always been wanting.

    there are many stories of these sorts that I believe we cant understand and may think they are stretched a little but they arent.

    Son - Silly mother, I am a realist. There isn't the scientific technology to transplant my eyes to your head and still have them working.

    Besides being obviously fake, no parent on Earth would expect their child to give up their eyeballs for them.

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    Or you could, you know, become a doctor yourself like Jose P. Rizal did.

    Facebook is silly. Love with your mother is implied, one doesn't have to click anywhere.

    This reminds me of the movie Dancer In The Dark. Mother and son have a degenerative eye disease so the mother is nearly gone blind but she can only afford to get the surgery that would save their vision for one of them, so of course she saves up for the surgery for her son. Well....
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    I think its actually based on an old european folk tale :unsure: I might be wrong...

    If we wanted to read Facebook copypasta, we'd be on Facebook.
