She shouldn't have to leave just because her ex's are there. If it was me I would've stayed and there and acted like I didn't even notice them.

You're right, she shouldn't have to, though if it's that much of a problem that her life is fucked because of it (FML ;);)) then she should have just came back at another time rather than let herself be subjected to it.

She might've needed to do something important. Deposit a paycheck to pay bills, get an official check for an important purchase, get something notarized, etc. Coming back may not have been that simple.

#15 she could have moved to the back of the line. sorry trade places with someone farther from the teller

#15: Ignoring somebody you used to be intimate with is just plain rude and immature. Leaving (even just for a few minutes) would be a much better solution.

I don't think it was a coincidence, #37. What if they were 'together'? It's never a good sign if all your exes now bat for the other team.

#37, it's not like her exes stalked her, found out she was going to the bank and called each other and said I'll stand in front of her and then you come in after her and stand behind her to make things super awkward...

I think leaving would be even ruder. But that's just my opinion. Besides both of my exes did not end on a good point so there is no way I would not ignore either of them. @81

The line was so long because in the front of the line, some guy was bitching at the teller for apologizing on behalf of another worker.

#116: Eh, if you guys aren't on good terms, that's different. Still, even if you hate your exes, if you're ignoring them it's because you intend to be rude to them (which might be justified). If you're not actually trying to be rude, leaving is less offensive. You can politely excuse yourself, but it's not possible to politely ignore someone.

Woah, take it easy guys I guess dumb sarcasm doesn't work with you geniuses. Nice little result from this experiment though.

OP's not lucky if those are ex-boyfriends. They're ex for a reason. You wouldn't be happy if you dated two serial-killers (well, happy that you didn't die, but aside from that).

It's a pity that FML has people who don't get sarcasm so much that people have to point out when they are being sarcastic

I think breaking up with them is a bit more obvious that she didn't want to be around them... Still don't see the awkwardness of it though

@20. That has nothing to do with "more awkward" If she leaves, then she doesn't have to deal with them. Awkwardness is result of dealing with something. The only thing awkward here is you posting something that does not make sense and defending it with an equally nonsense explanation.

Like someone else has already said, she may have had something really important to do and coming back wasn't an option. Or she might not have been able to get back to the bank till a few days later and that wouldn't have worked.

#35: She doesn't want to be around them. Why pretend she does when she could've easily excused herself for a few minutes and stood in line later with strangers?

Reply

All she would need to do was wait a few minutes until some more people were in line

There's a big difference between not wanting to date someone and not being able to stand their mere presence. There's a lot of people I don't want to date, but I don't mind being around them. Leaving the back simply because they also happen to be there would betray just how much they got under her skin. Also, that might have negative social ramifications if she still shares any mutual friends with either of them. Can you imagine? "I walked in the bank and Susie was there, but as soon as sh

You're also assuming she dumped both of them. Perhaps at least one of them dumped her. Leaving the bank just because he's there would show how much he hurt her, and I doubt she would him to have that satisfaction.
