FML - The follow-up

Today, after a week of searching, I found my escaped snake. In my umbrella, outside, after opening it over my head. FML

lollymay13 Say more :
Just so you all know, I am not afraid of my pet snake. The FML was a mixture of a) the snake had been in an obvious hiding place, a dark enclosed space, all along. And b) because anything that falls on your bloody head outside is going to give you a fright! He is healthy and happy, he didn't die, and has not escaped since! :) And as for all the St.Patrick comments.... 'driving the snakes out of Ireland' was a metaphor for the Catholics driving all of the Pagans out of Ireland. Of course there are real snakes here.... actually pagans too. Well there ya go! lol :) x

#74 nowhere does it say the OP was scared of her snake, but having anything drop on you unexpectedly gives fright.. besides, the FML could be that after she spent a week looking, it was in her umbrella all along.

Or maybe the snake planned this from the start. Since it couldn't jump on its owner, it had to get into a position where it could just fall onto her. Death from above. Clever bastard.,

St Patrick, patron saint of Ireland, is recorded in Legend as having driven all the snakes from Ireland. Probably about as accurate as St George slaying the dragon and rescuing the maiden, but its a good story. Also, snakes can survive in Britain - we're at the same latitude so we should have similar (not identical) climates. Temperate, warm in summer, freezing in winter and all-year-round precipitation. :P

11- Just as 29 said it's a legend, and 5 is obviously just making a sarcastic joke on it. Of course snakes aren't indigenous to Ireland, but that legend is a part of your history. No need to cuff a guy who's merely making a joke referencing to the story.
