It's part of the southern lingo, if you will. Everyone down here, in the South, calls their boyfriend or girlfriend their "ol' man" or "ol' lady". Sorry guys, but let's not be judgmental. Millions of people live in the US, but there are many different kinds of cultures and people. And, with that, comes MANY different accents and slang. So let's not be judgmental! We may live 'down yonder' and say "ol' man" and "ol' lady", but we are still people. I promise that we aren't freaks who hook up with our fathers! :)
I'm trying to figure out when it became illegal to spend an evening drinking and getting sick... Everyone has done it at one point in their life or another. (If you're old enough to drink, of course!) I get sick when I drink wine. I love the taste. And I don't get drunk from it.. It just doesn't settle on my stomach well. Maybe the OP wasn't drunk. Maybe the OP didn't drink too much. Maybe they just had an uneasy feeling and got sick from it. People are so judgmental nowadays! And even if she did drink too much, as long as she is old enough to drink legally and didn't abandon responsibilities, then she is allowed to get sick from drinking too much! That doesn't mean she deserves it! NOBODY deserves to be sick to a point that they're vomiting! Judgmental people... Ugh! Nobody's perfect! So who are you to say she deserved it?!
170 - Please stop boring us with your rambling comments. If you post on FML, you WILL get judged. Go back home with "your old man", open a box of wine and read along with the rest of the class. So the rest of us can enjoy this posting and maintain our sanity, please refrain from posting on this subject any longer. Thanks, Y'all!
170 - the fact that she stated it as she did makes me believe she was binge drinking. Binge drinking is when you drink twice your legal limit in one night. If you drink this much you are causing yourself harm. If she got sick just from the taste then she should have stated that she was vomiting from an illness. She deserved it. In the end she is just causing herself harm.
If you saw a heroin junkie vomiting in an alley after a shot of fentanyl would you think that is acceptable behavior? Probably not. Most people would think it is sad and disturbing. It is sad and disturbing, just like excess alcohol intoxication. It's no different really. The body doesn't care about its legal status. If you think it's ok to drink to puking excess then you should never condemn any other drug abuser and never support any drug prohibition.
Well if that's not the dumbest thing I've ever read 170...drinking to that excess is disgusting. I've spent more nights puking than I can remember, and I stopped that behavior in myself eventually because I realized how terrible it is. Are you going to honestly tell me you think that is normal?
9- No, he said he only read the first part, "I was vomiting after an evening of drinking" and voted that she deserved to be sick. He made an exact point of mentioning he did Not read any further which included being felt up and sang to. :p So by his logic, which I agree with, if you drink in excess, yes you deserve to be sick from it. Simple, basic cause and effect. :p
Except that clicking "YDI" doesn't mean "OP deserves being sick for drinking too much" because that's not the main point of the FML. I agree she deserves vomiting for drinking too much. But she doesn't deserve other people acting like an ass while she's vomiting.
^ Neither 7 nor 54 said it was the main point if the FML idiot. They merely said that if she drank excessively, then she deserved to be sick, because that is what results from drinking too much. Still don't get it? Here: OP+Excessive Drinking =YDI. Hope that clears things up for you.
Maybe it's just me being kindhearted, but I don't think that anyone actually deserves to get sick from drinking. She never said she drank too much. She could be like me and a certain alcohol just doesn't settle well on her tummy... I drink wine. White wine is good. And so is red wine. But I could have one glass of red wine and it won't settle well on my stomach. I get sick from it without being drunk or even slightly intoxicated. Everyone is assuming she drank too much.. Like I said, the alcohol could have just not settled well on her stomach...
He was doing you a favor, got bored and started entertaining himself. I don't see a problem, at least he held your hair back for you.
76, Except he didn't...so that doesn't apply at all. What if he used the opportunity to repeat the holocaust too? Like oh emm gee! That's crazy! Except we are only really judging him on the things he ACTUALLY did, not just stuff that could have potentially happened.
