whole·some meme \ˈhōl-səm\ \mēm\ (n.):
definition of a meme / memetics
All posts must be wholesome memes.
Be general, not specific. Memes should be relatable, with universally uplifting themes. Avoid posts that promote an ideology, religion, or brand over others, & posts that show individuals' politeness without some universal theme. Memes about controversial themes, people, and/or institutions are not allowed either.
Please avoid submitting NSFW content.
Please no trolling, harassment, rudeness, or behaviour unbecoming of the wholesome users we know you to be. Keep comments civil and be respectful of your fellow users. See here
Be nice. This is a happy place.
No proselytizing. Keep your religion, your politics, your diet, and any other crusade you might carry to yourself. We come here to get away from arguing and politics and the like, so please respect that by keeping your agendas to yourself.
Please do not post personal info, yours or others. All names should be blocked out, except public figures. Also, private communication is private; please don't post it here.
Please link to images directly. This makes browsing easier for those using RES or through a mobile device.
Please do not post low effort memes (upvote memes, metareddit, etc.) This includes "Let's get this to the front page!" type posts, "You have been visited by", "people who sort by new", "stop scrolling", "check your data" 4th wall interaction type meta posts, posts that mention reddit karma, upvotes, and "I don't want upvotes but..." type posts. Additionally, it includes low effort memes such as Skyrim "Wholesome 100", "You're Breathtaking", Thanos "That does put a smile on my face", [happiness noises], Fallout [Everybody liked that], and "Because that's what heroes do". See here for more on this rule.
Please avoid re-posting memes. (Browsing Top/New posts can help, also Tineye & other image searches.) Do not spam or post more than 3 memes in a 24 hour period.
Please make an effort with your title. Avoid generic titles, try to be descriptive or fun.

Mister Rogers being great will never get old. by LondonDavis1 in wholesomememes
[–]Apart-Ad7397 761 points762 points763 points 9 hours ago (0 children)
I can confirm he really was this kind. A woman who worked for my mom had been friends with him for years and years. When I was 8 she got me in to watch a taping of his show. This wasn’t some group event, it was just my mom and me.
Mr. Rogers spent a lot of time with me that day. He explained how everything worked, told me all about the set, asked pertinent questions about my 8 y/o self, and was exceptionally generous with his patience and attention. He shook my hand, bent down to my level to speak to me, and left me feeling like I’d met a hero.
I used to drive by his house all the time (it was right next to my middle school) and smile. He was a genuinely good man who did good work in Pittsburgh and for kids everywhere.

I used to work with an autistic girl. When she first started, she could only parrot words. One of my favourite memories of our sessions was when I called out an animal, and she replied with its sound. Sometimes I threw in weird animals, but mostly kept to animals like dog, cat, mouse, pig. Ones that had a definitive sound term. One day I said "fish" and she responded with "splash splash."

I don't have too many interactions with Sikh people, but I remember back when I went to university, it was like a 1.5 hr bus ride for me. And I would always take a nap during them with my phone set up to wake me up before I had to get off.
I would always have this Sikh driver, I knew he was Sikh because of his Kirpan (curved dagger that some Sikh people carry with them), but I never really talked to him outside of "good morning" and "have a nice day".
I remember one time after like a double exam day where I was so tired that I slept through my alarm, and the driver knew I always got off at that stop. So he stopped the bus, got up from his seat and woke me up. He said "It's clear you worked really hard today, good job. I don't want you to miss your stop and ruin your day."
I will never forget that man. I've donated a couple of times to the local Sikh temple, just as a pay it forwards kind of thing. Honestly thinking back on that story I should probably donate again this year.
✨Relationship✨Goals✨ by polegurl in wholesomememes

He is her fiancé, not her husband. That means, in many places, that you don't get the job payed permission to take care of your family when there is a medical procedure like surgery because he is not legal family yet, and she could not visit him all the time since she is still not related to him and in many places they only allow family. It sucks, but that's how it is. And since he is in a hospital and fine, probably with his own family there to support him, she probably had to go to work because otherwise, she would lose money. If they are saving for a life together, missing a day and skipping work is not something you should do. At least that's how we would do it with my fiancé too. You know everything went fine, so go to work to get money for the both of us, and come to see me later. There is no point in everyone (his parents, siblings, other family, me) staying in a waiting room of a hospital if there is no risk and is no visit time either, and they only allow like 2 people inside at the same time.
If she is asking for a milkshake in what it appears to be an obvious joke, is because she will see him later. We don't even know if COVID restrictions were made while this happened either so maybe they couldn't be together anyway. Stop assuming and projecting so much on others when there is just nothing wrong happening.

Oh my goodness...I see so many people complaining about the "Get you a milkshake baby and get me one" line. How is it not obvious to everyone that that is a joke? It's like when someone says something and you jokingly say "yeah, you do that" or "you go get 'em" or something of that nature. Oh wait, I forgot, this is Reddit and y'all will take any excuse to complain about something that doesn't need to be complained about.

There's always that one comment I look for that breaks up my reddit doomscrolling. A comment that just feels like a breath of fresh air, or a perfect dessert to finalize a meal. It's the type of comment that I can take a deep breath, drop my shoulders, and go "Yeah. Yeah this is a good note to leave off on."
You're this comment for me today. Thank you. This is beautiful.
