Today, a friend who I hadn't seen in a while offered to give me a ride. I didn't really know how to give directions to my house, so when we had been driving for a while and it was getting awkward, I just pointed at a random house and pretended to live there. FML

You should know how to give directions to your house.

You should have told him to keep turning left and see how long it would take him to notice you had no idea what you were doing.

Ah, screw it. I live under that bridge. Drop me off there.

How do you not know how to get to your own house?

Lol I have no idea. I have done it so many times that I don't even pay attention I just walk... Been here for 7 years only know the street name I live on.

He takes a left! Omg he takes another left! I wonder which way he turns next!! Jesus Christ it's a left!!

protip: try giving him the street name next time, see if he knows it. Or can get sat nav directions. Or use google maps.

Uh, no. Don't blame technology. People often memorize routes without knowing streets.

Or they could have just moved into the area. People are too quick to blame technology.

@48, The fml said that the friend offered the OP a ride. This could mean that the OP always walks home or uses public transportation. I know exactly how to get to my home on foot and when I go with the bus, but don't ask me how to get there in a car. I have no idea what road to take and maybe OP had the same issues. I do think that the OP should have been honest and told the friend that he/she didn't know the directions. Just imagine how awkward it would be if the friend wanted to hang out and went to that house and figured out that the OP didn't live there.

Uhh so what if he likes his technology?? Why should you care? The FML says nothing about technology. You are too quick to assume.

66. In his stats it also says he reads books. And most people in their stats do not say that they play in the park. So you comment is an attack on the other person.

86, he meant assume that the FML is related to technology's influence.

66 what do you know about the 90s? You were born in '91. Nintendo released its game system in the 80s. The first cell phone came out in 1930 (installed in a car). The first windows computer was introduced in 1981. Technology has always transpire from generation to generation, this is another step to how we as humans evolved decade to decade. Don't blame technology for a lazy, unmotivated society, blame those that are lazy and unmotivated. I was in kindergarten in 1990, playing NES system, which was before you were born, therefore don't start on how much better off kids were in the 90s.

116- you are on FML right now, which means you are on the Internet, which also means you are either on your computer or your cell phone... Cough* hypocrite cough* cough*

How do you not know how to give directions? When you come to a street turn either left, right or go straight. What way do you walk home follow the closest route. I used to take public transportation but I still knew how to give directions even without street names. How do you know where you're going if your don't know how to get there?

Damn, all this fighting needs to stop. How about we go outside, lay off FML for a while, take a deep breath, and then stop with the Fuckery.

What the ****?! This is by far the most hostile arguments I have ever seen on FML.

128 your wrong...54...you have to go up...39....is the comedy channel where I live. This is why I don't read comments...too damn confusing.

140 - I'm sorry to hear that, I really am. Don't mind the people on here. They only attacked you on for a insignificant reason. Please everyone stop fighting, we have reached the end of the argument.

**** **** **** I missed the fight! Everyone's made up already? God DAMN it! *slaps everyone involved in the face* Come back and fight, you pansies!

I really don't understand how you can know how to walk home but can't give directions there whilst riding in a car. Do you only cut through gardens and side streets and parkour over rooftops? Unless you live in an area with many one way streets, you should be able to figure out how to get a car close to your house.

I don't know how to get home until i am ON the street that my neighborhood is on. Then i can find my way home once i get inside. I simply dont pay attention to street signs. Thats why i am so nervous about getting my permit because i have no idea where i'm going. My town hardly has any sidewalks outside of separate subdivisions and no city buses unlike where i used to live so you have to drive EVERYWHERE!

Isn't there an app for that?

Yes, but there's a crap for that too. (MAD FTW!)

Droids and other smartphones exist too...

Not everyone has a smart phone would work better here being that not only iPhones have some kind of map or gps technology. I have a feeling someone is going to come along and say "Well, actually...."

There's an app for everything

This is when you need Dora and her unbelievably amazing talking map

Yeah but when you get there it'll take Dora about 10 minutes to notice the house right in front of her.

Yeah cuz she keeps on asking ******* questions and always does those long ass pauses. Sometimes I'm ashamed that she even calls herself an explorer... :/

Dora: What was your favorite part? Me: well Dora my favorite part was.....Dora: that was my favorite part too. BITCH YOU DIDN'T EVEN LET ME FINISH! :D

siickman 7

Orr you say something like: Dora: what was your favorite part? Me: ... Dora: ME TOO!1!!1!1!! I laugh because no one will be as awkward as dora.

The awkward moment when Dora gets arrested by border police

Don't forget about the amazing singing backpack!

Dora: What was your favorite part? Me: The part when you gave Boots a ********. Dora: I liked that, too. Me: D:

Dora: You have to call map. Say map! Me: Map! Dora: Say it again! Me: MAP! Dora: One more time! Me: ******* MAP!!!

What if Dora didn't have her map with her in her book bag?! Then you'd all be stuck with her and her ridiculous talking bag.

Where the hell are Dora's parents? Do they know she's being stalked by a fox? Maybe she's just mentally retarded, and she's just imagining all of this in her backyard.

I seriously wish I had parents like Dora. I could go anywhere and not get questioned for it.

Dora: What was your favourite part? Teenager: When you and Boots did it behind that bush. Dora: Mine too!! Teenager: dafuq!?

91- hey hey hey, that's backyardigans :D

nofearjenshere 12

I miss backyardigans! That shit was my show!

Nah 171. Dexter, Hey Arnold, Samurai Jack, Code Name: Kids Next Door, Courage the Cowardly Dog. OH who can forget Ed, Edd, and Eddy! Those shows were the shit.

The awkward moment when 10 adults have detailed a conversation about what pisses them off while watching Dora the Explorer...

Power Puff Girls, Cow and Chicken, Alvin and The Chipmunks... God I miss the original chipmunks. They butchered them with the CGI shit.

When I was younger I thought Dora spoke French instead of Spanish. Took me a long time to realise why my grades sucked. :P Teacher: What's water in French? Me: Agua! Teacher: It's eau. Me: BITCH THAT'S NOT WHAT DORA SAID.

Sounds like life is always an adventure for you. Never know where you'll end up!!

No doesn't know where he's supposed to end up..

It'd be awkward if they waited for you until you got into the house

It also would've been awkward if it actually was his friend's house.

I can see it now: OP walks up to the house, rings the doorbell.. *Awkward waiting time, smiles at friend in car* Creepy enough guy opens the door, followed by a slight smirk. Do you go in?!

Hell yeah! He might have Ice Cream and Candy!

I can see it now: *Friend in car* Why the hell is OP ringing his own doorbell? And why do I have the sudden feeling that I'm watching **** of some sort?

Op: *creeperface.png* wierd guy at the door: Oh God no, not again

Thats when you pretend its someone robbing your house and run

As long as a bottle of lube is not visible from the door. Yes, yes I would.

Must be a young kid to not know how to get home. if your an adult shame on you

MarisaCB 16

If you don't know the difference between "your" and "you're", shame on you.

Wow you corrected me. Don't you feel special. Shame on you for thinking I actually care.

With the kid of technology we have and you still get lost ? Moron!

Who's the kid of technology? Da Vinci? Edison? Tarzan's Ass? TELL ME! I'm dying of suspense here.
