FML - The follow-up
way2go Say more :
Op here... The only reason I saved the bag was for my laptop inside... If it were just my textbooks I wouldn't be in a boot right now. I would have let it fall. Some of these comments made me laugh though, at least something good could come out of this!

You must have had a lot of expensive books in that backpack. I'm trying to determine what would be more expensive, replacing the books or getting your foot treated. This FML needs some cost-benefit analysis.

Bricks and cement, or books. I'm leaning more towards the bricks and cement though. Those are items I never leave my house with. Never know when ya got to build a wall to keep those brain eating zombies afoot.

Yah, but at the same time a broken foot would be quite painful. Don't get me wrong if someone tried to steal my backpack, it would not end well for the other person.

Think about this, maybe he had 3 heavy subjects, so needing a text book for each one, plus probably at least two binders, maybe a book, gym clothes and a pair of runners equate to a lot.

I'm going to have to say that there was a laptop or some type of electronic item in the backpack that the OP didn't want to break. Otherwise why would OP catch it with his foot because the books wouldn't necessarily break but a laptop could. I could be wrong...

That's a nice slogan. Whoever said "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never harm me" didn't consider this scenario. 30 - Could also be the getting the backpack stolen vs. having it drop on your foot. You shot yourself in the foot there, buddy.

Cost to attend to a broken foot : $1,200 Cost to replace a stolen backpack full of expensive books : $1,000 Getting an FML about it published along with a host of superficial arguments: Priceless

Not only are college books fking heavy, they're really cheaply made. I remember having to buy a packet of paper stapled together for one of my classes as an engineer and it put me in debt about $150. Don't underestimate colleges.

122 I'd rather have my foot broken for a few weeks than have hundreds of dollars worth of books and maybe even a laptop stolen.... but maybe that's just me
