FML - The follow-up

Today, my sister lost a leg. Immediately after hearing the news, my boyfriend started cracking jokes about getting her a job at IHOP. FML

mariet_fml Say more :
Holy hell, I forgot that this made it to the site. To answer some questions: This happened several years ago. My sister is a soldier, was deployed, bomb went off, lost her leg. I'm not going into details because it's still difficult to discuss. She has a desk job now and gets around fine on a prosthetic. We did not break up directly because of this. We had a huge row and I threw him out of my apartment. I didn't speak to him for a week. He apologized, said he just felt awkward and didn't know what to say, and I forgave him. We broke up later for different reasons. Mostly he is a nice guy, he had never shown any kind of insensitivity before this (he even came with me to my grandmother's funeral) but this was a bonehead moment. Some people suggested that I "know it's funny." In a hypothetical situation, it is funny. After she went through physical and emotional therapy, it is funny. I was reminded of this event because we went to IHOP and she jokingly asked for an application, saying she is automatically qualified. But at that moment, when I was in shock and could barely breathe? Nothing was funny. When you hear this kind of news and you are not even sure if your sister is going to live, she is the only one that can cheer you up. So fuck you guys.

#123, so, technically, fuck OP's life for getting turned on by men who make horrible jokes concerning her sister, her one leg, and a restaurant? FYL, OP.

No one else has said it, but sorry for your loss OP, well, your sisters. It sucks to be missing a limb. I wouldn't know because those people terrify me (I blame MR Bill!!!!!) but I hop she does well!:)

To take your sister's mind off of it take her out drinking and get her legless... shouldn't be hard as she is halfway there. Joking. That sucks OP. Break a foot off up in his ass. Either that or break his legs, see how he likes it.
