In these relatable memes, most often found on Twitter due to the text-format, people disappoint their therapists with bad decision-making.

The meme depicts a realistic conversation between two people, the Therapist and Client (often represented as “Me”). The Therapist begins a conversation with a question like, “What do we do when…?” or “What do we say when…?” to which the Client often responds with an inappropriate or nonsensical solution.

The format is similar to Nobody: Me: memes, only Nobody has been replaced by the Therapist. The meme often concludes with the Therapist telling the other person, “No,” implying that the answer to their question of what to do or say, was a bad one.

People often use these memes to roast themselves for the poor choices they make.
