Today, a four-year-old said a word that I didn't know the meaning of. I had to look up the definition. FML
I agree, your life sucks 17 629
You deserved it 36 876

Same thing different taste


I wish I knew what the word was, to see if it was actually a real word.

That's pretty sad that 4 year olds consistently show you up with grammar.

13 - I think you mean a large vocabulary.

I always find it strange when people brag about their own stupidity (assuming they are being serious).

Child prodigy? Or your vocabulary isn't that extensive.

Dumb this down for OP. They aren't gonna get what "prodigy", "vocabulary", or "extensive" mean.

Not either, necessarily. Parents around here teach their young children all kinds of obscure words so they can have their kids show off. It's pretty ridiculous. Some kids also pick up random words from TV - my daughter was telling everyone what a proboscis was when she was about 4, because she saw it on Magic School Bus. She's not a prodigy, just very observant and has a good memory.

It's okay, I still don't know why bandz will make her dance.

Oh... Wait.. No... Oh.. I see.. Hang on.... If I tilt my head this.. No.. Hold up.. Uh... Nope, I still have no idea what that's supposed to mean.

He's referencing a Juicy J song I think, and I only know that because Jenna marbles mentioned it in her last video.

The juicy j song "bandz make her dance" is saying bands( as in rubber bands around stacks of money) will make a girl dance (and more). How that has anything to do with this FML is beyond me

Is that what that song is saying? I thought it was vans like the clothing brand. Didn't really listen to the song

6, you forgot a part. Its "Pneumono"ultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis.

How in the ******* world do you even pronounce that?

its really not that hard. come on guys, preschool stuff, just sound it out

Hippopotomonstrosusquippedaliophobia, anyone?

55-Fear of long words. The irony is what makes it my favorite phobia.

#42, one syllable at a time. My dad taught me that word when I was in about third-grade and I freaked people out using it. It's coal miners' black lung disease.

17, so it is then! And here I was proud of myself for remembering such a long, ridiculous word.

65, You only forgot the part that means lung, no big deal.

That was one of my spelling words in fourth grade. I loved impressing adults by spelling it. At least in this story it seems the child is pretty smart. A new hope for the next generation?

I'm so curious now... This should be one of those times where OP shows up and clears things up for the community.

Unfortunately, judging by the name, OP probably won't be showing up.

Don't feel bad...It was probably something he/she heard from their three-year-old sibling.....

Zie probably learned it on one of those kid's shows. You aren't stupid, zie will probably forget it if zie doesn't

You messed up on long division and now this, OP? For shame!
