Proportional response

Today, our house caught fire. While trying to help my mom get to safety, the word "fuck" accidentally escaped my mouth. Once we were safe, she said I was grounded for swearing. I'm 19. FML

I think the appropriate response to her would have been to say, “Next time I’ll just leave you in the fucking burning building.” Then walk out of her life forever.

Am I playing the disproportionately escalating response game correctly?

That's a pretty fucking lame excuse for saying fuck when you shouldn't be saying fuck. You should have the fucking self-control to reserve fuck for important things like commenting at FuckMyLife.

I think this is the most unique FML I have seen and I love it. Definitely FYL, OP. So dumb! The fire sucks then your mom’s reaction to you swearing sucks. If there’s ever an appropriate time to swear, that would be it.
