“I gave birth to you with such difficulty and you repay me by cropping me out.”
This is 18-year-old Abeera Tariq with her mom, Noreen. Their entire family attended her cousin's wedding recently, and this specific photo was apparently among hundreds of photos taken that day.
Upset, Noreen screenshotted the photo and asked her daughter why she was cropped out of it. "[You] all are here in this world because of me," she proceeded to say as she addressed the indignity.
Momma Noreen then texted in Urdu and said (loosely translated to English), "Ungrateful kids...I gave birth to you with such difficulty and you repay me by cropping me out."
Tariq said she and her mom "joke around like that all the time," but she genuinely "felt bad" when she got saw the texts.
But her mom ended up calling her, and they were able to laugh about it all after.
