Nina's Comment Catch-Up
Wee-oop! wee-oop! wee-oop!
Proud mama alert.
You guys were superb commenters this week. I'm beaming. There was a generally greater effort this week to participate in the community by making helpful, supportive, and hilarious comments and I just want to let you know, your efforts have not gone unnoticed.
But here's the thing: you guys still aren't giving the hugs. This is the internet, for pete's sake, you're not going to catch any cooties here. So this week, in lieu of the hugs, or better, in addition to hugs, I am linking users’ FML Pages! Head over to the ranking users’ FML pages and start following their action! They've already proven themselves to be positive contributors to the site, there's really nothing to lose.
Here, take it for a test run on my page. Once you’re on the FML Page, all you have to do is click “Follow” in the upper right corner in order to get all my activity on your Timeline! Come on, you know you want to!

“Life is precious, we live and then we die. Everything in between must be enjoyed, no reason to live an unhappy and angry life, even if you're a piece of lint.”

“Your kid sees you everyday. How often do you get to see the gardener, maybe once a week! I bet he is an awesome kick ass person.”
8. References to my favorite urban operetta will always make it on the list, cakefete2.
Today, I was fed up with things being taken from my room so I installed a key-locking handle on my door. I installed everything but the door knobs, and because I was worried that I would put the two of them on backwards, I closed the door to check. I'm now locked in my room. FML
“Being locked in your room isn't so bad. R. Kelly was trapped in the closet for like 30 songs.”
7. Glowworm56 delivers the only pun on this week's list. Bravo.
Today, at work, I was tasked with cleaning up a small AC flood. I saw that water was still dripping from the overhead AC as it was frozen over, so I asked the resident for a bowl to catch the water after I'm done extracting the water from the carpet. She handed me a colander. FML
“'Yeah. Thanks a hole lot.'”
I know I used this gif a couple weeks ago, but 1) I love it and 2) it fit too perfectly. Deal with it.
6. Thank you for recognizing the valor of this glorious community, egnur_mas.
“Well, now you can tell them you can get published on FML, which is no easy task.”
5. Thank you for pointing this out, Regulate. You're a good man.
Today, I went to a bar with a close friend. She got drunk and was feeling sick, so I carried her to my car to take her to her house. Some stranger accused me of drugging her and tackled me with her in my arms. She threw up on me, and he took off running without an apology. FML
“I see two chivalrous deeds and sadly it went wrong for both of you guys. Your female friend should feel great when she wakes up and is through the hangover. She has a good friend like you to look after her and a random guy sticking up for her too. I know in your head he seemed like a bit of a dick but I can't but think if he did/does the same thing in a situation where some poor lass was drugged then he'll save her from one of the worst nights of her life. Rape mentally scars.”
4. This advice from Ewokhunter01 is something everyone needs to be reminded of from time to time.
Today, I gave my niece a $100 bill instead of a $10 so she could buy ice cream. When I realized my mistake, she never returned it but thanked me and gave me a big hug. Now I don't have money for gas or food all week. FML
“Sometimes pride can be your downfall. Asking for the change isn't going to kill you. Admitting you made a mistake is brave and only jerks will put you down for it. I'd speak to your sibling, explain the situation. If they love and respect you, they will get it back from your niece for you. Don't be afraid to ask.”
3. True dat, RichardPencil. No shame in fearing crazy tase-y men.
Today, I tried to face my fears and take the elevator at the hotel I'm staying at. When the door opened, I was greeted with a taser pointed at me and, "Are you sure you want to get on this elevator?" Guess it's the stairs for me. FML
“A phobia is an irrational fear. Avoiding an elevator to escape being tazed, bro, is a rational fear.”
2. Classic, RooktheBaggins. Nice work.
Today, I went dancing with my best friend and I went back with her to crash in her bed. I didn't expect her boyfriend to stay over too, much less in the same bed. And I definitely did not expect them to have sex while I was there either. Nor to learn that he moans more than she does. FML
1. On point, debbyman13.
“These are all covfefe”
BONUS COMMENT: Ashamed_sister makes it on the list because flattery will get you everywhere.
“How long did the FML staff search to find all these GIFs? Each of them is right on the spot.”
