The Facebook Meme Wars: Are You “You?” Or are You “I?”

I plug my ears and I yell at you, but you don’t hear me.

You plug your ears and you yell at me, but I don’t hear you.

You see what my problem is . . . I am plugging my ears, I am yelling.

I see what your problem is . . . You are plugging your ears, you are yelling.

We consider the problem and think of our solution . . .

We will yell louder and more often.

But wait . . . Surely if I add insult they will incline their ears to me.

Surely if I blame them for everything I don’t like I will win their hearts.

But wait . . . They have unplugged their ears.

They have stopped yelling.

They say – Some of what you say is right and we need to change.

Oh happy day! They see the error of their way.

But wait . . . They say more . . .

Will you acknowledge that some of what I say is right?

Nooooooooo! I plug my ears again.


My hurt drives me. My pain fuels my anger. I will not forgive or reconcile or cooperate with them.

Only when I crush them utterly and they acknowledge me as supreme will I be satisfied.

For this is not about truth, logic or reason.

This is about revenge.
