13 Fantastically Cringy FMLs About the Walk of Shame
The day after Halloween walk of shame, as immortalized in How I Met Your Mother, is an event that we at FML love. If fact, for us, this may be the real holiday. Seeing guys and gals hanging their heads in smeared makeup and facepaint, clinging tightly to their worn-out costumes from the night before is a true spectacle of the living dead, and all in the FML spirit!
But the walk of shame happens all the time. Not just after Halloween, and not even necessarily after a sloppy one night stand. There are a plethora of situations that could land you in the walk of shame, and we’re here to share some of those with you because, believe you me, we’ve got an arsenal of stories like it.
1. Tough break, OP. She doesn't sound like a winner anyway.
2. I'm sure you made plenty of people laugh though, so there's an upside!
Today, I did the "walk of shame" sixteen blocks. It wouldn't have been so bad if the sidewalks and streets weren't completely covered in ice. Somewhere along the way I lost what little dignity I had left, along with my left shoe. FML
3. Scarlet takes a tumble.
4. Ow chihuahua!
Today, as I was walking my dog around the block, I fell in the splits position on wet dirt and ripped my pants right on the front. I then had to walk home casually holding a chihuahua on my crotch hoping I would not run into anyone. FML
5. Shy people problems.
Today, after 4 years of staring each other down at the bar, we both finally made a move and ended up at his apartment. After 45 mins of unsuccessfully getting anywhere, I left, to walk home in a hail storm. FML
6. This is very much not the point of the FML, but..."maw?"
Today, while playing with a group of kids at the school where I work, I heard an immense rip. I looked down and recoiled in shock as I noticed a gaping maw in my pants stretching from my ass to my left kneecap. I had to finish the rest of the day and walk home like that. FML
7. What a lovely image.
Today, I was hit by acute food poisoning while attending a colleague's birthday party at his home. The toilet had a door that wouldn't close all the way, there were only three sheets of toilet paper left, and I had to walk home through town, in a dress, with my soiled underwear in a plastic bag. FML
8. Drunk girls are an enigma.
Today, after clubbing with my girlfriend, we went to her place. She then threw up on the floor, and went to clean herself up. When she came back, she'd forgotten that she'd just thrown up. She blamed me for puking, and kicked me out. It was 4:00 am and a 3-hour walk home. FML
9. hate to break it to you, but he probably knew you were there and was just taking the piss. *ba dum tss*
Today, my boyfriend and I were making out on his deck out back. When leaving, I heard the sliding glass door open on the upper deck, I froze in the yard to not be seen. Too bad I didn't move. Apparently his dad pees off the deck at night. I had to walk home covered in pee. FML
10. I be he wouldn't call it "making love."
Today, after being in love with one of my best friends for ages, he took me on a date. We then went back to his place and we made love. Afterwards, he told me he wanted to show me something and led me outside. He ran back in and locked the door. It's a two hour walk home. FML
11. Beats walking home in a skimpy dress and stillettos, though!
12. Don't worry, people are only staring because they're jealous.
Today, my girlfriend and I were driving to a costume party. On the way, we got into an argument and she kicked me out of her car. I had to walk around the city center in an Iron Man outfit trying to find the party venue. FML
13. An armband isn't that hard to take off...
Today, I was performing in the musical 'Cabaret'. I was playing a Nazi soldier, swastika armband and all. Someone thought it would be funny to take my real clothes while I was on stage. I had to walk a mile back my house with my costume on. Someone threw eggs at me. FML
