Today, I was driving without my seatbelt on, when I noticed a police car approaching. I panicked and desperately fumbled around for my seatbelt, only for them to pass by with just a funny look. Then it hit me that I was riding my motorcycle. FML

Maybe He wasn't appropriately confident in his driving skills from the beginning or he just lets fear get the best of him when it comes to an authority. Remind me of the milgram's obedience experiments..

HKC, I know exactly what you mean.. Whenever a cops around I get all nervous like I've done something wrong even when I haven't.. It's just figures of authority that get me.. Their always looking for some reason to slap the cuffs on you or wright you a ticket.. Any detail that you might have accidentally over looked .. :@ even when you're the one who calls them, they still fuck you over sometimes..

140- I don't get that feeling most of the time because I know I haven't done something wrong. But when I do mess up, like accidentally running a red light, then a cop makes me nervous for a while =P

I get that feeling when a Cop looks at me and when I go through those detector things at stores, I feel like they are going to go off on me.

Not really, although that's because my dad is one and I got guys stopping by my house all the time. One of them is my trainer too, so I don't have much to worry about when I'm in my state

I get that feeling when I'm going through the scanners at an airport. I just feel so guilty even though there's nothing to feel guilty about.

The cop was thinking "crazy kids"

Why assume that OP is a 'child'? My opinion if I had a kid I wouldn't let him drive a motorcycle till he moved out. But that's just me. Shouldn't make quick assumptions.

Hey I have a mother who has ,add threats to disown me if I ever get a motorcycle when I'm out on my own. She is obviously exaggerating, but she seriously hates them that much due to their danger that she has put in her own head. They are dangerous, but so is driving.

95 - Driving is dangerous. But motorcycles are FAR worse than cars. Not only do cars HAVE SEAT BELTS, but you are actually in an enclosed space, rather than out in the open with no bodily protection but the clothes on your skin. The driver's seat can In card is also specifically designed to stay fairly intact when in a crash. Now tell me again about how driving a motorcycle is just as dangerous as driving in general.

126 - I think you misunderstood the comment...but thanks for pointing out the obvious, we had no idea that motorcycles didn't have seatbelts and that they weren't enclosed...wow, crazy world man...

I agree with you. I never said they were just as dangerous, I know they aren't by any means. I was just stating my mom has a over the top fear of motorcycles, as if they cause death by touch. I have no plans of ever riding a motor cycle because o don't see the appeal. The danger is just more cushion to that choice. I honestly was just trying to appear the motorcycle lovers out there that I don't call them death traps. I didn't mean to insinuate that I thought driving a car and motorcycle were just as dangerous as the other. I'm not an idiot.

I hope you people realize that this FML was translated from the French version of FML. So, just because it was published today here, it doesn't mean it was submitted today.

That's a bit unfair, don't you think? Haven't you ever looked for your fork when its in your hand? Or looked for your phone during a phone call? It's just a brain slip, though a major one.

If you typically drive a car without a seatbelt, you might want to think otherwise. A seatbelt saved my life when my car did a 360. Either way, I don't see how this is an FML at all.

He's probably McLovin who bought alcohol underage and desperately tried to get away from the police officer by joyriding. *superbad reference*

Wouldn't you notice the lack of a seat immediately?

Reply

I'm not saying those things aren't noticable, but he obviously ignored those things in the first place. When he's feeling around, his attention would immediately be turned to the fact that there is nothing to feel and he would notice that first.

I'm sorry but I don't really have a working knowledge of motorcycles. I don't know how many have seats like the ones found in cars so if OP owns one, my comment is completely invalidated. Whoops

Sh*t, some of the motorcycle seats I've seen on custom bikes may as well be La-z-boy recliners. They're cushy and envelope you on both sides. I'd fall asleep riding that thing.
