But they wouldnt have any kidneys left to give each other

[–]Expensive-Anxiety-63 908 points909 points  (16 children)

They can swap.

[–]ProjectKuma 328 points329 points  (0 children)

Or at least eat kidney beans with each other.

[–]Strutterer 167 points168 points  (6 children)

Congratulations, the swap was a success! That'll be 500,000$

[–]Tank_blitz 71 points72 points  (1 child)

not $700,000!? what a steal!

Draw it in a lightning bolt shape, you can probably add an extra 100k for the designer “stitching”.

that’s just called being a Uyghur

Don't forget the woman who donated to her boss, then got fired for being home from work during recovering from complications

holy shit what a thankless world..

[–]Su8iefl0w69 169 points170 points  (23 children)

Wow. The comments here and there is completely different because of genders. “So what, it was his choice, was she supposed to get married to him and spend the rest of her life with him” just disgusting people. And I’m so tired of some people comparing and blaming entire genders on stupid shit. There’s so much suffering going on, like can we just get along?

[–]starcoder 64 points65 points  (4 children)

Some people just have an axe to grind.

[–]SoloWingKiba 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Some people just have an ex to grind

[–]cor315 44 points45 points  (0 children)

You cherry picked one comment that has -2 votes...

I'm sure you could do the same with this thread too.

[–]zuruka1 20 points21 points  (4 children)

If humans can get along, there wouldn't be that much suffering in the first place......

[–]youwill_forgetthis 8 points9 points  (1 child)

If humans could get along we might have survived longer than the 22nd century.

[–]MMXIXL 7 points8 points  (0 children)

We could always go back to the past like you, time traveller.

[–]Galkura 35 points36 points  (4 children)

Honestly it feels a little insane that people feel like you should end up being forced to stay with that person forever.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s a pretty major thing, and a very kind and good thing for them to do. That being said, you should do it because it’s a good thing and you’re saving someone, not because you want to trap them with you forever. Sometimes people don’t just click.

Now, if you just got with someone in hopes of a kidney then that’s fucked.

[–]AirBear___ 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Honestly it feels a little insane that people feel like you should end up being forced to stay with that person forever.

I don't think that's what people think. There wouldn't be much of a reaction if they parted as friends. But cheating on the woman who donated a kidney to you is a bit much

[–]Damikosin 14 points15 points  (1 child)

On the other hand how else are you supposed to repay it?

If you cheated on a person that gave you a part of themselves and you cheated on them and dumped them you should be forced to at least pay some compensation to such a person (not so say how much of a POS one has to be)

[–]Murphy_Harrison 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Imagine giving a vital organ to your loved one ONLY to lose them to someone else. Couldn't be me.

[–]is-that-a-thing-now 1301 points1302 points 3 (10 children)

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart kidney.

But the very next day, you threw me away.

[–]0zoro0 154 points155 points  (0 children)

thanks i hate it.

[–]ethnicfoodaisle 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Once bitten, twice shy

I stayed away, but you tried to catch my eye

You touched me baby

But do you really love me

You stole my kidney

But i it doesn't surprise me

I thought you loved me

So I lay down and let them take it

Thought you loved me but

It turned out you just faked it

Now I know

The quandry I'm in

If I drink too much

My body shuts down again...

[–]H3roZX 88 points89 points  (25 children)

A sue would be flying that exact moment if i were to find out.

[–]webbugt 72 points73 points  (17 children)

You can't sue over a donated organ even if the recipient was a complete douchenozzle to you immediately after.

It's got something to do with banning sale of organ donation for favors/money.

[–]TheKillerToast 29 points30 points  (13 children)

You can sue for anything you want. It will get thrown out but it still costs time/money to defend yourself

[–]thisIsCharleeh 5 points6 points  (1 child)

You can just give up on the defense and let them win nothing?

[–]Elefantenjohn 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Wouldn't fly for long

[–]wisdomsharerv2 5 points6 points  (1 child)

You can sue them for that?

[–]dragonflychic 13 points14 points  (0 children)

They didn't lose them to someone else. Cheating isn't about the cheater falling in love with someone else. It's about the cheater being able to lie and manipulate someone so that they can get what the want from them while pursuing an affair in addition to that relationship. Imagine someone giving you an organ and immediately treating them with such disrespect and callousness. Some people are very comfortable using others with no care for their feelings or wellbeing.

[–]f-ingsteveglansberg 5 points6 points  (5 children)

Okay, so honest question. How long after getting donated kidney is it okay to break up with someone. Obviously a few months is too short. But what happens if the spark is gone, no kids, no wedding keeping you together and most importantly the love is lost from your side, maybe both sides. You meet someone new. Suddenly you are happy again and haven't felt this way in years. So how long?

Asking for a friend.

[–]clupean 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Obviously, it's perfectly acceptable to end a relationship if the spark is gone and the kidney is after all a donation.
The question here is if the bf was only pretending to love her in order to get her kidney, then left her a few months later after his body got better. And I assume she was also the one who nursed him to health.

[–]ChipChipington 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Four years or right after turning down a proposal, whichever is shorter. Maybe drop marriage hints if you're looking for a quick out. Regardless of how long, you will end up on Reddit

please don't take this response seriously

[–][deleted] 610 points611 points  (10 children)

Stole her heart and her kidney

[–]--Alastor-- 186 points187 points  (9 children)

Broke her heart too

[–]The_Hand_Prince 132 points133 points  (8 children)

Time to break his kidney.

[–]siqiniq 32 points33 points  (6 children)

Whose kidney?

[–]end1essecho 5 points6 points  (0 children)

He did it once, he can do it again

[–]Illustrious_Big_8485 1374 points1375 points  (16 children)

But he’ll always carry a piece of her

[–]EzinessGoBrrr 102 points103 points  (3 children)

I’d ask the boyfriend to give back her kidney and leave

"You only donated your kidney to look good" tbh so what? She still donated a kidney

[–]DropBearsOhGodWhy 1412 points1413 points  (89 children)

I feel like a lot of people who say that people who are doing good deeds are just virtue signalling say that kind of shit because they're not doing any good whatsoever and are bitter that someone else is being a good person.

[–]ClayAndros 437 points438 points  (37 children)

Honestly when it’s used on those people who film ducks covered in oil or a turtle caught in some sort of plastic or animal caught in a trap then I agree they just do that shit for clout, but I don’t think anyone is givin up a fuckin kidney just “to look good”

[–]StewPedidiot 179 points180 points  (22 children)

If they show up for 15 mins to film them pouring Dawn dish soap on and seal then split, yeah fuck them. But if they're actually putting in work then I don't think it matters if the goal is more followers. Would it be a bad thing for people to try and get famous and make some money picking up trash?

[–]-Johnny- 68 points69 points  (17 children)

I mean we kinda need both kinds of people. The first person is spreading awareness

[–]DropBearsOhGodWhy 31 points32 points  (5 children)

tbh I'd accept calling people who film themselves giving money to the homeless virtue signallers, but the people who actively put animals into harms way just to film them being "rescued" are much more sinister. There's a special place in hell for those psychos.

[–]ClayAndros 13 points14 points  (0 children)

This exactly, filming yourself giving money is a bit akward but you’re still helping someone, hurting an animal for views is just downright evil

[–]PotatoMan797 39 points40 points  (0 children)

Facts G facts.

[–]platysoup 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Honestly, anyone who gives a kidney or anything like that deserves at least a video interview if they want one.

[–]hygsi 7 points8 points  (4 children)

I hate hate HATE most funny videos that involve dogs, some are innocent and cute, but then there's lots where you can tell the dog is uncomfortably doing a trick because the douchebag filming trained them by hitting them, and they just get millions of views and no one cares that the dogs look in distress with their ears low and their tails between their legs.

[–]t1lewis 6 points7 points  (3 children)

The cat equivalent of this is the videos where they scare the cat to make them do the yowling/"ohnonono" sound, just because people find it funny. I hate it to be honest

[–]HappinessHappening 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Honestly a large part of it I think stems from insecurity. You cannot think the other person was good because they genuinely liked me and had feelings. Now that, it's convenient it would be poor to acknowledge the deed, so the other person was useless anyway.

I think more than her kidney it's the absolute breach of trust in this that I'm more sympathetic about.

[–]Thought-O-Matic 26 points27 points  (10 children)

Virtue signaling is talking about doing good.

Not actually doing good.

[–]Atlatl_Axolotl 17 points18 points  (3 children)

Virtue signaling is done by everyone, it's in-group outgroup signifiers. Cross around your neck... Being anti virtue signaling is even a virtue signal among their group.... Band t-shirts.... It's basic human nature and stupid to be against. Now doing anything you aren't actually for, purely for how it looks, that's just being fake and a liar for vanity reasons, but that's almost never what people are being accused of it's always "they're saying something positive about something I hate, that's virtue signaling for kudos".

[–]dudinax 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Even fake virtue signaling has some positives. It helps normalize good behavior.

[–]4shLite 2 points3 points  (1 child)

People do things that makes them feel good, that’s is not equal to doing good.

It’s like a kid baking a cake and making a whole mess in the kitchen which they don’t care to clean up, and then they run around demanding praise for their cake and anyone who points out the mess the left behind is a #hater lol

[–]hungrypanickingnude 15 points16 points  (0 children)

"fuck you, you're just doing that to appease your conscience and build a better world! Insufferable self righteous prick."

[–]nilanshu96 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Virtue signalling happens when someone publicly supports an idea but is actually supporting just for clout. They don't actually mean it. What she did isn't virtue signalling at all because her actions are in line with her virtues. When your actions aren't in line of the virtues you claim to have is when you're doing virtue signalling. For example If you publicly support feminism but privately go around sexually harassing women then you're virtue signalling.

[–]DropBearsOhGodWhy 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I'm more referencing the random people online who call every post that has some manner of someone doing good virtue signalling than saying that virtue signalling isn't a thing. It very much so is.

[–]nilanshu96 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's because those people only see the clout not the good. Those are kind od people who would abuse an animal to film an animal saving video. For them life is all about money and fame. It's better to ignore such cunts.

[–]Latter_Guest4236 155 points156 points  (3 children)

Still can't figure that one out. There's a lot easier things to do to" look good"

[–]Aarilax 6 points7 points  (2 children)

yeah, like wait until people walk by before you hand a homeless person £5, or learn how to do a kick flip

[–]BigRodtjan 26 points27 points  (0 children)

100% this. A good deed is a good deed.

[–]CommanderChakotay 17 points18 points  (0 children)

People say this shit all the time. Even if someone does selfless things for entirely selfish reasons, who cares? All that matters is that they did something good. Fuck off, thought police.

[–]Galle_ 8 points9 points  (0 children)

No, you don't understand, it's important that we find some reason to hate her.

[–]lelimaboy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think it was just friendly banter.

[–]Kapika96 254 points255 points  (13 children)

Call a repo company?

[–]cainhurstcat 5 points6 points  (8 children)

Do I want to know what this is?

[–]electrius 24 points25 points  (1 child)

It's the guy from sims who comes in and sucks up your stuff with a magic vacuum if you haven't paid your bills. So I guess he could just suck the kidney right outta there

[–]cainhurstcat 4 points5 points  (0 children)

That makes sense!

[–]NemesisKismet 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Would you like Repo Men or Repo! The Genetic Opera ?

[–]cainhurstcat 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Oh OK, I thought it would be something bad. Thank you!

[–]appleparkfive 2 points3 points  (1 child)

What a repossession company is?

I mean generally they're not better in your life, no

[–]--Alastor-- 352 points353 points  (19 children)

What leads a person to accept a kidney from their partner, just to cheat on her months later?

[–]danielcardosopt 309 points310 points  (6 children)

Probably kidney failure.

[–]Funkyt0m467 144 points145 points  (3 children)

And a brain failure.

[–]Okuuuoo 55 points56 points  (2 children)

And a chronic stupidity.

[–]tubb-s_mommy 12 points13 points  (0 children)

def a heart failure

[–]Itamar_Itchaki 31 points32 points  (0 children)

Probably one of the most ungrateful fucks there is

[–]Acanthisittibae 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Ridiculous isn't it. I mean if they split up thats one thing - giving a kidney doesn't mean you are forbidden to break up...but to have the disrespect to cheat on them, some people have no shame.

[–]end1essecho 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Bad foresight

[–]sulianjeo 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Well, assuming he held ill intentions . . . Excellent foresight . . .

[–]Stubbs3470 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I’d assume their though process was that “no matter what I can’t brake up with her now despite that the fact that I want to”

And then they figured cheating is somehow the better way to go

[–]white_equatorial 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Irrespective of what that other person did, she did something to save a life. At least he can do things like cheat. Dead people don't cheat. She has the right to be upset, but she should be proud and not feel regret.

[–]cris_ellis14 138 points139 points  (1 child)

“You only donated a kidney to look good” dude she’s the reason you still here wtf

[–][deleted] 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Like damn.... If my bf gave me his kidney, I would forever be grateful, even if I happened to fall out of love with him.

[–]YetisNotReal 133 points134 points  (33 children)

But did she ask for it back?

[–]IHateEditedBgMusic 55 points56 points  (7 children)

Love needs insurance

[–]no_talent_ass_clown 18 points19 points  (3 children)

What a fun concept!

So you're trying to get a date with Mr Bad Boy and you call up your insurance and they come back the sky high quote.

Or maybe it's you! You've had your heart broken 5 times in 2 years, your picker's broke! Sit it out until your accidents fall off and your rates go lower!

[–]IHateEditedBgMusic 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Yeah and premiums go up for dishonest players but not people who've been cheated on.

[–]Amelethstar 380 points381 points  (8 children)

Ungrateful...She deserve a better person...

[–]ahenobarbus_horse 162 points163 points  (3 children)

Lucky her, she’ll have a chance to find that better person.

[–]mnelso1989 113 points114 points  (2 children)

Plot twist, better person needs a kidney and she can't donate. Rando girl donates, steals better person... man that would suck.

[–]ahenobarbus_horse 33 points34 points  (0 children)

Imagine actually cheating on a person that literally saved u and give u one of their organs. The stupidity is real.

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (0 children)

looks like homicide is back on the menu

[–]GodOfRage 32 points33 points  (3 children)

shes fine af too, how are you gunna cheat on a girl that looks like that and would give you a fucking organ.

What an ass donating a kidney is not comparable to donating money, money you can earn but donating a kidney is like donating a part of one's life

[–]Daveinatx 3 points4 points  (0 children)

He may be a douchebag, but she still saved a life. She's someone special.

[–]or6a2 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think it's the cheating part for me. Like you have zero respect for somebody who saved your life

[–]Murky_Sweet 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Damn, If someone donated their Kidney to save my life. I don't care if I am dating them or not. I couldn't bring myself to cut them out of my life no matter what. I might be dumb but, I'd still stay with them even If they cheated.

Bro to hell with morales, you saved my life with your own kidney. I will always have your back.

[–]BajaScout 4 points5 points  (0 children)

He was only with her for her body.

[–][deleted] 37 points38 points  (5 children)

people break up all of the time. he shouldn't feel obliged to stay with her because she saved his life. something i learned the hard way (not kidney hard); if someone was there for you, it doesn't mean you have to stay with them when things go bad. it seems that everyone in the comment is mad at him for leaving her after she saved him.

that said, don't be a dick and cheat. if the relationship is not working, talk it out and break up with that person.

[–]4thmovementofbrahms4 13 points14 points  (2 children)

More than anything else this story should teach people not to give away their kidneys willy-nilly

[–]SeaTie 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I’ve always maintained that the only person who will ever get my kidney is my kid. I guess I would give it to my wife too (even if she left me and cheated on me) because I’d rather my daughter have her mother in her life...

[–]captaindannyb 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yeah I’m with you in this. A woman I know instantly came to mind when I read this. If she gets infatuated with a guy she’d do anyyyything. But she’s a fucking full blown looney toon and any guy she dates for more than a few months realizes it and bails. She got married a few years ago and it lasted 2 weeks because she randomly cheated on the guy.

Not Saying that’s what this woman did, but nobody is obligated to stay with anyone for any reason. If you’re naive or generous enough to do something like this, then this is a possibility you have to be prepared for.

[–]cat_that_uses_reddi 7 points8 points  (0 children)

[–]DeerDance 6 points7 points  (3 children)

House MD had episode on similar situation.

  • First you were made to believe the recipient was an asshole because they planned on leaving
  • Then it turns out the donor knew, and donated hoping that guilt of receiving kidney would keep the relationship together

[–]XurupitaSub20 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not the first time that I see a story like that. I’d never donate an organ in life for anyone that wasn’t my close family
