Facebook is the final frontier of the simple-minded and easily fooled. It’s a sewer for human brain waste and stupidity, but just when you think that the moronic Facebooker who “shares” has learned his or her lessons — it all comes back around again. This time it cost a happy elderly woman her sense of dignity and her confidence and maybe even her life.
Kathleen Stokes, age 84 knows all about Facebook share morons — she’s this week’s hero and the newest patron saint for the imbeciles of Facebook who share fake stories. Kathleen isn’t in on the stupidity and she herself is not a Facebook moron. All she did was smile for the camera and now her happy life has folded in half.
What am I talking about?
The FAKE story — plastered over a photo of Mrs. Stokes — goes like this:
Lucille decided to give herself a big treat for her 70th birthday by staying overnight in a really nice hotel.. When she checked out the next morning, the desk clerk handed her a bill for $250.00. She demanded to know why the charge was so high “I agree it’s a nice hotel, but the rooms aren’t worth $250..00 for just an overnight stay – I didn’t even have breakfast!” The clerk told her that $250.00 is the ‘standard rate,’ and breakfast had been included had she wanted it. She insisted on speaking to the Manager. The Manager appeared and, forewarned by the desk clerk, announced: “This hotel has an Olympic-sized pool and a huge conference center which are available for use.” “But I didn’t use them.” ”Well, they are here, and you could have.” He went on to explain that she could also have seen one of the in-hotel shows for which they were so famous.”We have the best entertainers from the world over performing here.” “But I didn’t go to any of those shows..” “Well, we have them, and you could have.” No matter what amenity the Manager mentioned, she replied, “But I didn’t use it!” and the Manager countered with his standard response. After several minutes discussion, and with the Manager still unmoved, she decided to pay, wrote a check and gave it to him. The Manager was surprised when he looked at the check. “But Madam, this check is for only $50.00 “That’s correct I charged you $200.00 for sleeping with me.” “But I didn’t!” “Well, too bad, I was here, and you could have.”
Well…look at the photo. Has one of your moronic family members or co-workers or neighbors or old high school friends shared this utterly moronic story with you?
Of course they have — and you, being as stupid and gullible as they are, fell for it. You hit the “share” button. Perhaps you even added something like, “That old lady really showed them.”
You freaking idiots make me sick. IT NEVER HAPPENED! When are you morons going to learn?
Here’s the truth, and anyone who says, “Who cares that it didn’t really happen, it’s still funny,” will get a a one way ticket to Simpleton City from me. That’s where you belong!
“I was driving home from the craft shop where I buy yarn and other crafting supplies and I lowered my window to get a better view as I tried to make sure I didn’t nick a nearby car,” said Kathleen Stokes of Suffern, New York, USA.
“I was about to put the window back up when a young woman walked by and snapped my picture. Here we are, months later, and I am the talk of the internet it seems. I never slept in a hotel and wrote a check to any manager with such a lewd comment. Why are people saying this about me? I don’t know what to believe. They say it’s a hoax but maybe I am in a fog of some kind. I don’t know what to think. I don’t think I will drive my car ever again. I suddenly feel like an old and feeble person.”
Mrs. Stokes is confused and was recently released from a local hospital after a nervous breakdown owing to the fact that she didn’t remember doing any of what is said in the fake Facebook story. Her son Henry Stokes, a local attorney and former county prosecutor is steaming and he’s looking to throw the book at the people who created this story that he says is damaging and insulting and cruel.
“My mother’s image is being used to foster a lie, and what some people think is a harmless joke has caused my mother great distress,” said Henry Stokes from his office in New York.
“My daughter saw this picture of her grandmother on Facebook and when she asked about it, my mother was greatly confused and upset. My mother is an old school person. She sees a photo of herself and a story and in her mind it must be true. She thought she had done something wrong or had lost her mind. She was very mentally nroken by this. She didn’t recall any of what was said in the story because it never happened. She was so upset that she called a neighbor and asked to be taken to the hospital to be examined. She was so fearful that perhaps she had had a stroke or something of that nature. It caused my mother great anguish and 4 days in the hospital.”
Local investigators are looking into the matter of who took the photo and then spread the fake story about the woman refusing to pay her hotel bill and then telling the manager that he should have had sex with her since she was there at his hotel …etc.
“My best advice for people in social media is to think twice before you share some little story that you might think is quirky or funny,” said Henry Stokes. This kind of mindless passing of fake stories can be quite damaging – especially to an elderly person.
“We now know who took the photo and authorities will be making an arrest shortly. My mother is not a fragile person but she has had a few health scares in recent years. The pranksters may have thought this was all innocent fun, but my mother who seems so smiling and carefree in the photo might never really bounce back from this. How would you feel if this were your mom or grandmother?”
So again, TheDamienZone.com reminds the MORONS of Facebook to STOP SHARING FAKE STORIES. If you are too frigging stupid to see that something is obviously fake, you should stay the fuck off of social media. You’re a simplistic idiot. You think that “shares” can cure cancer and give sick babies heart transplants and that a “click like” will send a dollar to the Philippines. You are so freaking stupid.
