Silver linings

By Username - This FML is from back in 2011 but it's good stuff - United States

Today, I got a really bad sunburn on my face while at the lake. Not to worry, though; my friends made me feel better by saying, "It takes the attention away from your acne." FML

Im sorry buddy. I hope it heals and doesnt peel. You always gotta wear something when you go out for a long time. It'll heal soon :)

Thats better than what happened to me..I got burned so badly over the summer..but not only that i wore sunglasses & it developed into one of the worst raccoon bUrns. Everyone from now on, refers to me as "Raccoon Girl" . I suggest you put some aloe on that burn, btw. Hope it gets better!

Tell them the acne is really smallpox and quickly sneeze on them!

That made you feel better, OP? Gee, I'd feel terrible! I'd feel like I had noticeable acne!

55 I think OP was being sarcastic because they said it to make her feel better but it only made her feel worse. And OP, you should take a trip to the drugstore and get some products for your skin!! Sun screen, aloe vera, face wash, toner, mask, moisturizer etc. You don't want to look 30 when your twenty!!! That's so not hot *said in Paris Hilton voice imitation*

At least it does take the attention away from your spots... I recommend getting sunburns more often ;)

Wow, 1, that was so ******* nice that I lost my train of thought.. sucked all the sarcastic energy out of me. Are you in the right place? lol :) Nicely done, buddy.

OP, that is no where near as bad as what happened to me a few years ago. Before the military, I lived in the Florida keys. One day I took my boat out to a "deserted" island in the the morning. After exploring the island, I came back to find my boat stolen. I spent the next 17 hours on the island on a blistering hot day. When I was finally rescued, I had 3rd degree sunburns on my face and chest. My face was yellow with blisters and I was sent to the ER.

ohhhhh burn!! wow what a terrible pun.... dont hate on the homeless guy.

My face is the only place I've ever gotten a sunburn. I feel your pain, OP. Find the least scented & irritating sunblock and coat your whole face next time. Very little is more painful than smiling with sunburnt cheeks.

This might just be the nicest comment I've ever seen on this site. I applaud you but you might be in the wrong place.

You're welcome. Trust me, aloe works wonders.

No u see soccer I try to post funny comments and think through my head huh I bet I'm going to get thumbs down and them I'm like who cares and post it

xDefendPopPunkx 14

Dakota, how do you "think through your head"? Is it empty so ideas just go right through? That would explain the comment and why it made so little sense...

I'm sure they were just kidding ... Lol:)

Kill them all, with a bomb. Nuclear bomb.

I hope you brought an umbrella; it's raining cold hard facts up in here.

You're gonna need some aloe for that BURRRRRRNNNN!

IndiRae 9

No. But seriously, aloe is a great idea for your physical burn. Not so much the metaphorical one, that one just needs time.

Chikaaa21 0

Yeahh..haha thankss.

Ya know what kinda burn aloe can't even fix... ...TASMANIAN HABANERO

The author of that FML probably wouldn't like your comment. So I guess you could say he'd be... *sunglasses* ...butthurt. YEEEEEAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!

I have this crazy hippy friend who is a big fan of all natural treatments. He swears that Aloe Vera helped cure his acne (in addition to honey and a bunch of other crap), lol. So... Personally I enjoy my differn. My face is flawless, w00t

Honey is the shit. I've heard that bacteria can't live in it or something, but anyways I use it for canker sores and sore throats. It tastes good also.

...are you a wizard?

YOU SHALL NOT PASS!!!!! Does that answer your question?

crazychick1269 7

wait r u??? or r u like a gard or somethin???

"wait r u???...". 'sigh' Is this really what the world has come to?

Yeah you got it right, he's a "gard"

Well they were trying to put a good spin on bad thing

sammybearbby 6

damn.... :/

awww... but don't worry your acne will get better and your sunburns will heal soon! :)

RouletteRed 6

Or play connect the dots and make the Mona Lisa. Haha
