IDIOTS on Facebook are beginning to realise that memories are not only made by happy occasions but painful and humiliating ones.
The statement ‘Well, we made some memories,’ usually employed after holidays or family get-togethers, has been proven to be just as accurate following bouts of herpes or arrests for shoplifting.
Keen Facebook user Mary Fisher said: “I sat down with a cuppa to page through some of the wonderful memories I’ve made this summer, like Dad’s 60th or that lovely day on Camber Sands.
“But instead I found myself remembering the kids having nits, being stuck in traffic for five hours on the A22 and that time our Shaun called me a stupid bitch in front of everyone when I sat on his iPad.
“It’s almost as if my memory indiscriminately records every aspect of my life, instead of being voice-activated by the phrase ‘making memories’.
“Yesterday, I stubbed my toe and dropped a box of wineglasses down the stairs, scattering shattered glass everywhere.
“As I cleaned it up I said ‘Well, making some memories.’ Except between ‘some’ and ‘memories’ I added ‘fucking’.”
