Your Memory Sucks

Ocean Creek revamped its website recently and there's lots of cool stuff for you to check out, MB friends! Live Web Cam! Virtual Tour of an actual condo! Informational video(!):

And "Memories," a new section where you can share touching and dramatic stories of your own personal stay at Ocean Creek. Also, you can rate other people's memories, which is a totally healthy and normal thing to do, I guess. As the site explains, "After you rate the [current] memory, look to see how your rating compares with everyone else's." Fair enough.

So at this point you're probably wondering which kinds of "memories" get the highest and the lowest ratings (1 = Poor, 10 = Excellent). Honeymoon and engagement stories get pretty high marks (9s mostly) because, you know, AWWWWWW. For example, the memory, "Ocean Creek Engagement," you guys:
"[...]Once we were seated and snuggled next to each other, Rick started to express his undying love for me and then asked for my hand in marriage. The sun was shining and the morning could not have been more beautiful. I of course said "Absolutely" and he placed the beautiful diamond ring on my finger."
9 stars with 56 votes! Give the people what want. Which is not stories about old people talking about old things: The two-star rated "Retirement Decision," by Nick and Lynda from Medford Lakes, NJ:
While at Ocean Creek for Bike Week we made the decision that not only would Myrtle Beach be the place to retire but Ocean Creek Resort. The friendly staff, great location and of course the weather and walks on teh beach just made the decision hands down. Thank you very much for an awesome four day stay.
Terminal illness memories get average ratings, as well. Only six stars for Amelia and her brain tumor, which may seem harsh but, I mean, really, what did they expect?
