FML - The follow-up

Today, while on a flight, another passenger pulled their carry-on out of the overhead. They forgot about the filled, metal water bottle clipped to the outside until it nailed me on top of my head. FML

Hey all, OP here, never thought I'd get a FML posted, so I guess this is another one to cross off my bucket list. lol Yes, as stated you can take an empty bottle through security and then fill it on the other side. Thanks for the funny comments, those made it more bearable. The hit hurt and left a small bump but I have a hard head so it's nothing major, and it was more shocking than anything, I had no clue what happened at first, just sudden pain. The guy with the water bottle was really apologetic and I could see he genuinely felt bad, so no hard feelings. Hopefully the new year will be better for us all! Happy New Years everyone!

You can (usually) bring empty water bottles through security and fill them up at water fountains once you're checked in and been searched. I've done that on flights to avoid paying for water while waiting in the airport terminal.

Or OP filled it up AFTER going through security. Plenty of people do that, and it's completely fine to do. Not to mention it saves you the insane amount of money that airports charge for water when there are perfectly fine fountains.

Your grisly tale of avionic assault with images of water filled bottles and high-speed transit conjured thoughts of third world countries where life is much safer and more comfortable. Perhaps next time you should walk through sweltering heat to your destination where no one can attack you with h2o because the nearest water is 25 miles that way.
