It's hard to make friends but don't wait till high school to start find someone now. Go to your schools library or something and talk to em or something

7- usually when you say something like that it is supposed to express sarcasm, but I guess in this case, just say she's a bitch 9- you say sarcasm doesn't show well through text, yet you used sarcasm in your comment and I'm sure others did as well.

Yea, death can pretty awkward. Your teacher is just letting you know! When my grandad died it was pretty awkward, I was like "oooh, uh, well this is weird", then I just left my grandma and 'grandad' to themselves. (They needed the privacy).

Was it your World of warcraft character who died? Then you're awkward bro

while your teacher may have said it like an asswhipe, he/she was right about the fact that it will hopefully get better. once you're down, the only place to go is up. good luck with your troubles and hang in there !

Jesus fuck, what is with all the whiny little twits these days? Your teacher was trying to be helpful and supportive! Does that really warrant you coming here and bitching about her? I'm sorry an acquaintance of yours died, but unless you were wearing a sign that said "WARNING: GRIEVING TEENAGER AHEAD", you can't expect others to read your mind.

I agree with Mr Bastard on this one. OP could, and should, have reacted better at the time of said incident... and bitch-slapped the teacher in the teeth. She had a perfect reason to do so at the time.

I'm with doc on this one. The teacher was just attempting to make her feel better. I accept the incoming downwards thumbs with open arms.

The teacher said "I understand you're socially awkward." That's called being helpful. If she had said, "You're a socially awkward little asshole, aren't you? HAHAHA!" that would be more of an FML. I read this as the teacher trying to be helpful and understanding. You can all feel free to thumb me down to the bowels of Hell, but deep down you know I'm right. You can't expect someone to know why you're crying.

Can't expect someone to know why you are crying, but you could at least ask them why. I think what the teacher did is more socially awkward tbh, what do you say to that?

Doc, I usually respect you, but I don't think you get the point of the FML. The point is that apparently it's possible to assume O.P. is socially awkward, not that the teacher was being an asshole. Read over the FML again.

ZebulonPike - As someone who was very socially awkward as a teenager, I know exactly what OP is talking about. But what the teacher said was actually quite kind. I wish I had teachers like that when I was in school. boydeee01 - Thanks. :) Johnny6speed - I suspect all the thumbs down are from silly little emo kids who don't understand what the hell I'm talking about.

Rockerchick - Yes, I have to be rude. As I've said in all the comments on this thread, I'm sorry that someone OP knew died. It clearly isn't someone she's very close to, or else she would have specified (my friend died, my grandfather died, my goldfish died, etc). But what the teacher said was obviously meant to be supportive, and OP is complaining about it. That's what prompted my rudeness.

You are right, doc. If I was a teacher, I would probably be annoyed by some random tee crying in class. They didn't know why she was crying, for all he knew, she could have been crying because she broke her nail. You can't expect everyone to coddle you and give you big hugs when you cry.

Are you seriously asking me to be more sensitive? You don't know me very well, do you? I guess I've just become more thick-skinned in my old age. What people say to/about me just DOESN'T BOTHER ME. I think kids are just too damned sensitive these days. Branflakes, go find a corner to cry in. I'm trying to have a conversation here, and your whinging is bothering me.

It's not about expecting others to know why he/she is sad but about being called socially awkward, which is kind of insulting. Teachers should know better.

Alright well instead of the teacher assuming why (s)he was crying, they simply could have asked why (s)he was crying, and then after hearing the story, could have tried to comfort op. Rather than being a total ass munch and thinking op was crying because of "social awkwardness".

Reply

Ok there is only 1 thing bothering me about docs coment and that is that I don't think op was being whinny and what give the teacher the right to assume that she's crying cause she's socially awkward I think the usual responce would be to ask what's wrong, nd sorry bout your loss op!

What the fuck indeed. I haven't seen so many people get so unnecessarily butthurt over one of my comments in a while. Good. Datoismyname - are you actually threatening to rip my balls off over a comment on FML? You have anger issues, friend.

Dont be a bitch! And DONT eva say Jesus' name in a curse!!! And thats mean cuz someone died and the teacher just came ova and assumed instead of asking wat wuz wrong!!!!!! The teacher shuld've asked instead of assuming! Duh!!

Chloe, "jeez" is short for "Jesus" therefore you used the Lord's name in vain. Doc, I'm going to have to respectfully disagree with you on this one. It would have been much kinder of the teacher to ask what's wrong first. The teacher isn't a douche, but really should learn to ask first.

Reply
  DocBastard  |  38

Mariet - Yes, it would have been kinder of the teacher to ask rather than just assume. I'll give you that. But what pisses me off so much was all the people calling the teacher an asshole or a douche or whatever else the rest of you assholes were calling him (or her). What the teacher said did not sound malicious at all, but everyone here seems to be so damned sensitive.

I agree it wasn't the teachers fault at all. But it would still be pretty bad to be mistaken for crying because your socially awkward, when you friend in fact died. Even if it wasn't the teacher's fault. Doc going around calling everyone names and getting his knickers in a knot for the thumbs down here is pretty uncalled for.

Obviously people aren't thinking about it from your viewpoint. Now that you explained your reason for the comment, you would think that people would begin to understand, but some just don't want to open their eyes a little.

So let me get this straight, forget everything else (because to give my opinion on each point would take a mile) you're angry because people are calling the teacher stupid when all said teacher was trying to do was be nice, right?

Reply

Yet the teacher assumed something that then proved to be insulting to the op. That's actually classifiable as a stupid move. Of course the teacher had a good intentions (haven't you ever heard the road to hell is paved in them?) doesn't mean they weren't incredibly stupid in their actions. Yes people make mistakes, yes the teacher could be a perfectly fine human being, but this is FML, we work with what we've got, and the only indication to the teacher's intelligence or stupidity is a classifiably stupid move that not only was inappropriate, but also confidence damaging to an already emotionally damaged op. When someone is crying assuming to know the reason is rarely the answer, because getting it wrong risks potentially worsening the situation (as happened here) - this is common sense, therefore the lack of common sense in the teacher's actions speaks to the teacher's potential stupidity

I doubt the teacher is mentally challenged, quite likely they're socially awkward themselves (a factor that, though ironic, hardly excuses their behavior or speaks against their possible stupidity) so as it were there is no factor that excuses their behavior. In the end, there is much damning evidence that suggests calling the teacher stupid is appropriate and that you, therefore, had an off moment. My condolences on your off moment, however the rampant insulting was unnecessary and uncalled for. Thank you & good day
