My Mother keeps telling me she saw on the news something about a big earthquake in New Zealand, Is there any truth to this? I keep searching but cant find anything, and shes pretty serious. She says it happened a few hours ago.

It seems your mother is a flake, a kook, a nutbar, a serious wacko, someone to watch out for, someone to deliver her meds to on time, a religious nutter confounded about the possibility of the Rapture, or just plain schizophrenic.

Sorry to sound harsh,but sometimes it takes that to bring people back into reality.


I would tell, her to take her meds, personally.

I'm in Christchurch.The only thing that has moved today is me and my wife. I could post a pic, but it would be against the T&C.


Sorry, your Mum's a crazy woman.

Shes torn between Catholicism, Islam, and Christianity. but the reason shes been so sad is because social services took all her kids and shes been fighting to get them back for years and she didnt want anything to happen before she sees them again. That's me assuming though. My mom is out there, i was just curious as to if there was any truth to it.

Thats quite a mix to be torn between! AorAki, your assumption actually seems kind of on the money ;p. Whatever she was watching would have been reporting the 6.1 revised down quake. As i'm sure she's aware, there is NO rapture.

Off topic, but grindhouzer - your avatar!

Was that really necessary? Did you really have to take this tone and insult someone’s mother like that???

Yes,in the context of this thread I think it is entirely appropriate, given the information offered and the lack of outcome.

3 stars awesome.Bet you feel enabled now!



No I don't,when someone is telling lies about my country.
It sounds like she is caught up in the rapture and is therefore,unfortunately,one of the ignorant fear mongering masses. Maybe I feel sorry for her,but probably not. I have to empty my chemical toilet.



Your Mum needs help.

Realistic,tangible,accessible help. Please find her some,.

What? Er?? ok... i would say this comment is more of a reflection of you own insecurities than anything else. I am sorry if 3 people agreeing with me offends you in any way but i didn’t ask anyone to star my comments





No I don't,when someone is telling lies about my country.



No one was "telling lies" just reporting what they had heard.




It sounds like she is caught up in the rapture and is therefore,unfortunately,one of the ignorant fear mongering masses


Maybe so... and that is unfortunate. However, it was hardly "the masses" who got caught up in this hysteria. More like a small minority who were over reported by the media just to sensationalise this silly issue and sell a few more papers.




Maybe I feel sorry for her,but probably not



Probably not? Probably?? This is your own feelings we are talking about isn’t it?




I have to empty my chemical toilet


Is that a metaphor?






Your Mum needs help


She is not my mum




Realistic,tangible,accessible help. Please find her some,.


Again, she is not my mum.


Sorry to pick you apart but thought you needed a little taste of you own medicine.

Its easy to talk about someone mother like that while hiding behind a keyboard!

There was a time when people had tact and were sympathetic to others woes. It seems the age empathy and compassion is fast dying only to be replaced by narcissistic, gutless geeks, using the internet to bully from.

This is something that really bugs me... Simple rule in life, just be nice!


Anyway... this has gone off topic for long enough... i'm outta here...

Peace

I would willingly say that to her face.(I know she's not your mum).


I make no apology for that,as I'm sure you make no apology for your comments.

The woman sounds like an out and out nutbar/kook.

Truth hursts?
