It Could Always Be Worse...

Yesterday a friend sent me a really funny website. I think its been around for awhile (tons of readers and contributors) but it's the first time I've ever seen it. Wasted about an hour on it laughing my heinie off.

It's called "F*** My Life", and no, not safe for children. People write in anonymously and tell about an awful experience they've had and readers vote about the horribleness of it all.

A few cringeworthy and funny ones that caught my eye?

"Today, I was a TA for a history class and the class was taking a test. About halfway through, I noticed one kid had a small piece of paper in his hand. I ran up the row, grabbed his test, and ripped it into four pieces. Then I took the note from him. It said "I believe in you, -Mom." FML"

"Today, I went to get a condom because my boyfriend and I were going to have sex for the first time. When I opened the drawer, I saw that every single condom had a Jesus pin stabbed through it, and a note on top of the box: "love mom." FML"

"Today, my brother joked that our dog was more attractive than I was. I looked to my mom for support, and she said "Well, she is pure bred." FML"

I think I'm going to save this just for bad days. Then I can be reminded that somewhere out there, there is somebody having a crappier day than I am. ;-)

My FML moment(s)? There have been plenty, but one stands out:

When I was in high school, I was in the cast of Grease. We were having a dress rehearsal, and some classes from the middle school came over to watch. During the slumber party scene when the character "Marty" was singing "Freddie My Love" I slipped off the bed during a tricky bit of choreography. The audience roared. I thought it was because of that impromptu bit of sketch comedy. It wasn't.

My jammie pants had caught on a bolt that was holding the footboard together and had gotten yanked down a bit.

I wasn't wearing panties. FML

You got any moments you want to share?

I think the worst FML moment I've had I did deliberatly!
I wanted the boys mates to leave... they were having a party in my garage and it was like 3am and I had had enough so I walked into the garage in me skimpy nightie and told them if they didn't leave I was going to 'flash me tits' at them... and I had nothing on under me nightie so they were gunna get a lot more than me tits to look at! Steve and Mike KNEW I would do it so started screaming at everyone to LEAVE NOW!!!! I enjoyed it anyway!

Sounds like a site I need to visit since things have been kind of sucky lately. Made too many mistakes, etc.

Nothing I care to share at the moment, but I have plenty of FML moments!

Thanks for the laughs. Good for my soul!

1976-1979. Worst moment of my life, absolutely.

Oh my gosh! I have too many to share. I'll have to check out the site though. Sounds like just what I need right about now!
Sorry that happened to you. Why weren't you wearing panties, silly girl??? :)

Hugs!!

Fell flat on my face at my very first formal dance (long dress & all), fell off my chair at a snotty la-di-dah function (not drunk), turned my ankle and almost fell at church (saved by the pew)...there’s a theme here.
I’m stopping now. The memories are harsh!

Ellen said...

Those almost sound too horrible to be true!!! Must go check that site, thanks for the mention.

I think one of my more FML memories is the time I had a little too much to drink, ended up bringing some guy home, he passed out on my floor, and when I woke up he was gone. He'd somehow stolen all of my CDs and my roommates'. Nothing else, just the CDs but hey, they meant a lot to me.

Rachel said...

You bet I do!

I just posted about, linked to you and to FML!

Oh NO! Dang that Grease!
I have too many for such a small space, but knowing one is not alone does take the sting out.

Koolio said...

I think we all have a few FMLs but those take the cake. I think you should submit yours, Mom.

Brenda said...

I know I posted a comment here yesterday, who ate it? :-)

FML moment: I was an early teen, my bathing suit had a wardrobe malfunction at the swim club and i was unaware until I stood on the low dive about to dive in the pool. Yeah... the cool people were in all the lawn chairs near the diving section. I was standing on the diving board with my boob exposed. Not cool....how did I survive that teen moment of agnst?

Kevin Charnas said...

these are EXCELLENT!!! And yours too, of course... made me laugh out loud...

"I believe in you! - Mom"

I can't get over it... I'm laughing my ass off.
