On 13 April 2014, Redditor posted a Good Girl Gina meme with this heading: “Every kid in my class got to go on field trips. Growing up dirt poor made my mom the ultimate GGGina.” This is the text of the meme: “SCHOOL TRIP COSTS $10 / MOM GIVES ME $30 AND SAYS THE TEACHER WILL KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH THE REST.” On Reddit, Pinky_Swear wrote, “She was also one of the kids whose parents didn’t believe in charity, so she couldn’t eat the free public school lunch. Her mom sent her to school with a thin slice of liver between two pieces of white bread. She was laughing when she described how much she wanted to snatch the food on fried chicken day, but I just wanted to f[••]king cry.” Pinky Swear added, “She is one of those rare people that used a shitty childhood as a reason to be a better person, and parent, rather than as an excuse for being weak.” Redditor iamprasad88 commented, “Your mom sounds like my grandma. She was born during the British Raj India and grew up in the time when the English had stolen all the wealth, leaving behind a hungry and poor nation. She used to cook [for], provide for, and adopt children. She taught herself English without going to school. When she passed away, around 600 people turned up to see her funeral rites, we didn’t know more than 50 of those people. We don’t even know how they found out or how they knew her, but they all said that she had helped them in some way earlier.”
