Today, after 3 hours in a cramped car with my family, we stopped at a gas station. I got out of the car and the first words out of my mouth were, "It feels so good to be able to walk!" That's when I noticed the elderly man sitting in a wheelchair only a few meters away. FML

Look right at him and say, "You oughta try it, you lazy, old fart!" In a situation like that, apologizing just makes things worse, so you might as well go the way down the Asshole Road. It's a one-way street.

If I was the guy in the wheelchair, I would have run your ass over.

How awkward! :) Unlucky though!!

That's terrible YDI though

that was a big no no on your part- you should hve offered him a piggy back ride in return for forgiveness

Last time i gave a cripple a piggyback ride he smacked my ass with a carrot and yelled "FASTER!".

Haha! xD Nice profile picture.

Your username fits PERFECTLY with the FML!

They see me rolling, they hating..

#47 that was great:)

you don't deserve it nor your life sucks just akward

*rollin, hatin.

It's not that bad, my gran is in a wheelchair bit she can still walk with difficulty. Anyway the old man is a bit stupid if he thinks it's directed towards him.

I don't think he was offended but just wouldn't mind know the feeling too.

Try going 10 hours :(

That is perfect #47

WTF is a meter??????

Good thing he couldn't kick the OP

oooh, be glad he didn't try and kneecap you

Kneecap you? What does that mean?

it means to take out the kneecap by swinginf a heavy object, applying blunt force or shooting out the knee. Probably not fatal but nasty nontheless

Or by taking an arrow to the knee.

One more arrow to the knee joke and i'll shove MY knee up your butt.

Actually, this one time only, an arrow to the knee joke might have been appropriate xD

I was gonna shove a knee up my butt, then i took an arrow to the knee.

I used to tell arrow to the knee jokes until i got a mace to my face.

I was in a wheelchair, until I took an arrow to the knee... Oh wait...

41 - LOL. I got the weirdest visuals..

If I was the guy in the wheelchair, I would have run your ass over.

"I call that little move the wheel barrel!"

The first time I read your name I thought it was vanilla nipples...

Pretty sure that was the idea 73

^suck my blood ;)

Its ran not run srry dude

Look right at him and say, "You oughta try it, you lazy, old fart!" In a situation like that, apologizing just makes things worse, so you might as well go the way down the Asshole Road. It's a one-way street.

That's awful but I laughed. Shame on me :/

Oh perdix.. You're so clever

Ha! How do you come up with these

He is probably speaking from experience. Perdix seems like the kind of person trouble likes to follow.

#100. You're funny. perdix is not the real me. The real me is like Clark Kent. perdix is my comic-book character endowed with powers of super-dickishness.

No, #104, it's just your disease.

I think he meant pedophilia. It also seems as though becoming easily confused is your Kryptonite.

So? You couldn't help that he was near. And I bet he has heard people say that quiet a few times before any way.

Three hours is not that long to sit in a car. I'll bet you've sat at a computer for longer lol

3 hours in real time isn't very long, I agree, but being in a car with your family has a stress multiplier that can easily be around 10. It can be like an interrogation room with added fart odor.

Only if theres porn involved..

Try driving from New Hampshire to New Brunswick without getting out...7 hours.

Ive taken road trips where I sat in the car for 13 hours.

13 hours and you didn't even fill up on gas? Damn I wish my gas tank had unlimited gas.

Try 24 hours.. From California to Texas.

Um, I drove from Fairbanks, Alaska to Houston, Texas to see some family. That shit took 1 week with 16 hours of straight driving including gas stops.

And before anybody asks, yes we stopped for gas, we only got out to go to the bathroom.

Our family drove from Athens, Greece to Las Vegas, Nevada, and it took a year and a half! You know how many gas stations are on the Pacific Ocean?

#86, you could have saved a lot of time by crossing the Atlantic instead. There are lots of gas stations there, but be careful, most of the mermaids "working" around them have genital barnacles.

Last August, me and my friend drove from NYC to Chicago in, give or take, 11 hrs and 30 mins. We stopped about 3 times.

Fo'real. 3 hours? U big baby

Or sitting in a plane in economy for more than 8 hours with family is torture...especially when all three of your other siblings throw up during the flight. Also, I went on a flight that was 17 hours long. Goodness, it was nice to at least be on the ground again after that time...only two hours later to be on a plane again for another 8 hours, haha.

He probably wishes he were you anyway

Am I the only one who noticed that yesterday, the "It feels so good to be able to walk!" was in CAPS…?

In his head you know he was like "yeah bro, I wouldn't know. Thanks douche" lol but really that was just terribly unfortunate timing.

Okay I'll beat the people that are going to say "OP is a girl so why did you say bro?"..when I commented it didn't say the gender okay thanks bye:)

Whoops I guess I just didn't see it bro :/ its cause i was on a computer instead of myiPod like usual, *accepts loss*

I wish I got free thumbs ups on every comment I made because I was pretty, life must be good for you.

How dare u make fun of people who can't walk. Cry. Cry like u never cried before. And look at ur legs and take a saw and swing it back and forth til u get to the bone. J/k. He prob found it funny poor guy

wtf is wrong with you.

Why dont you put your other foot in your mouth?

Watch the next FML be "I'm crippled. A boy got out of a car and screamed "It feels so good to be able to walk again!" and then he stared at me. FML"

OP is a girl...
