I'm working over here, leave me alone!

Today, while lifeguarding, I received six prank phone calls on the official pool phone. When it rang again, I picked it up, told them to go fuck themselves, hung up, and then left the phone off the hook. A second later, my cellphone rang. It was my boss, telling me to get a sense of humor. FML

Your boss sounds like a douche bag. Six prank calls is overboard, unless it wasn't him those six times, but still, grow up.

you should have told him to take a long walk off a short pier!

Yes, then he'd fall in the water, the lifeguard would have to save him, and then he'd get a promotion! You're a genius!

the OP should be thankful her boss just told her to get a sense of humor instead of firing her on the spot.

Yeah but it would have been out of place for her boss to fire her if the boss was the one being annoying in the first place. Sounds like s/he never grew up past the age of 12.

I mean if the boss was enough of a jackass to be prank calling him during his shift, then I wouldn't be surprised if he fired him when the OP told him off.

Well...the OP's a woman, and I actually don't know how her boss would've reacted. I'm being torn between his sense of humor/immaturity to decide whether or not he would have been offended, although I think the principle of prank calling someone-especially your own employee-shouldn't be grounds enough for dismissing them.

Oh whoops, i keep forgetting to read whether the OP is a man or woman...but i'm just saying, she told her boss to go fuck him/herself, she should be lucky that all she got was a slap on the wrist, considering how much of a jackass her boss is. Now it would really be an FML if after she told her boss off, he/she fired her. It's not the OP's fault for telling the prank-caller off (especially since she didn't know that it was her boss) because she was supposed to be working and someone could have drowned. But when she cursed at her boss, she's lucky that all he/she said was "get a sense of humor".

i dont see how this is a "fml" its pretty funny, ur boss would probably understand why you were mad, you were doing your job so no fml kk :)!

What's the FML? you didn't get fired. You boss may be an idiot but when you cursed him out all he did was say get a sense of humor. Nothing seemed to happen except you got a little annoyed

I agree with #3 - you work for this guy? What an ass-hat. However big of a jerk he is, at least you didn't get fired!

yeah, that's kind of ridiculous that your boss would do that, especially since the basis of what you did is saving someone's life. just sayin' what if someone had been drowning while your boss was making one of his prank calls?

Arrgh, a scurvy dog's a beggin' t'be keel-hauled t'night!

sucks, esp when your boss is a douchebag... report him for using an official phone line for pranks, it wontbe so funny when a kid drowns

Your boss sounds really cool if he was prank-calling you while you were on your job :) You could probably get away with slacking too...

At least he didn't fire you for it.

get a sense of humor woman.
