Today, after weeks of drinking my mom's vodka and replacing it with water, it now only tastes like water. She has a habit of drinking on Fridays. Today is Friday. My life is a ticking time bomb. FML

C-c-c-c-combo breaker!! **** you Jesus... I've always wanted to say that in a non religious sense.

it should be in the freezer if she was smart, because then she'd know if some jackass put water in it, leaving it to explode!

You should knock it over on "accident".

Drinking doesn't make you an alcoholic you dumb close minded pathetic bitch.

Pick up the bottle, drop it and make sure it shatters. Say it was an accident.

Yo Keyman, your shirt fell off. Thought you ought to know. Tell her vodka turns into potato water if left for long periods of time. Also, no sympathy whatsoever.

To all those who said drop it.. Ever smelled anything alcoholic? There's a smell. Water doesn't have a smell. It would be immediately apparent that it's actually just water if the person dropped it. I say they should go get someone to buy some of the same alcohol and fill the bottle back up.

Do it whilst she's not in the house? + it doesn't matter now, OP's probably grounded by this time.

If It's a good vodka it shouldn't smell :) And if OP dropped the bottle while her mother wasn't at home it would be cleaned up :)

Pour it down the sink and tell her she drinks too much. At most you will just have to pay her for another bottle.

thats what they made the button for dick'ead

stop perving, noticed u seem bit stuck up on ur profile? ur shirt fell off too

it means he drank her moms vodka replaced it with water. now the moms gonna drink tonight and find out the daughter has been drinking her vodka. pretty self explanatory if you ask me

Yeah, just look at the kitty. He might have couple beers every few days, but it's not ALL he does. He's just overweight and lazy, not an alcoholic.

Cin, as you can see from my photo I was trapped on a deserted island after falling off of a cruise ship in the Western Caribbean. I used my shirt to fashion a helicopter and fly home. That's why I am able to reply. :) Thanks for caring!

Rhyno, I'm not stuck up in the slightest nor am I a pervert. I was joking. My profile is meant to be comedic. Christ.

The kid was drinking his moms vodka,and to replace the portion that was gone he replaced it with water, until it became tasteless.

haha 63 I was totally going to say something like that unless your Rebecca Black!

rebbeca black would defend a Friday with one of her horrendous songs

how can op drop it when ( i guess) op is not sllowed to touch it?

viper2426 0

tell her it evaporated haha!!

The only issue with dropping the bottle would be that you could smell the alcohol, or not, in this case.

hiding it is only a temp solution. here's what I would do, throw it out and tell her you did it for the sake of her health and cuz u love her so much... and crying a bit would help too..

If I did that to my Dad he would probably slap me across the face and yell at me for wasting a good bottle of vodka.

That's a bit naive really, kids/teenagers are always going to drink, it's just what we do.

pff, screw that, good on you, one life, live it. But you've got two choices, accept the consequences or hide the bottle and hope for the best

Going by hoe dumb the OP I don't think it matters whether or not she drinks alcohol.

34 - That's a bit jaded, really. It's a personal decision; plus, teens who choose not to drink are proven less likely to become alcoholics.

it's legal here for me but I'm pretty sure there's a law that makes it younger where if you drink controlled amounts and are not in public. i don't know I just heard that somewhere. but still the generation has changed . I know people 2 years younger than me (I'm 14) that have drank. everyone drinks. I actually don't know one person my age that hasn't drank. the only problem here is how OP drank it. she did something stupid that takes common sense . of course it's going to taste like water. she created that timebomb herself. do it at a party and sleepover at someone's house or just don't drink at all. problem solved.


thats just political bullshit people can make up their own minds so chill out.

54- Fair point, I was simply pointing out that whilst we're all made fully aware of the effects/dangers of drinking, people still do it regardless. Of course it's a personal decision but it's just a fact that many teens do drink, and will continue to whether or not the law is there to try and stop it.

god damn.. it's legal here for me at 19 *

oh and samii or whatever the **** your name is.. I assume you don't have too much fun in your life.. just a guess. loosen up a little. you got one life so you should try to have fun.

Give me a study that proves that. Trust me the schools only give one side of the argument and only give the evidence that they want to. Never the evidence to the contrary. Why is the drinking age lower in every other country? Do you think they do not care about the citizens health?

RandOmPhyXiO 5

your wasting you typing for even writing that kids under the age of 21 are going to drink get over it

dudeitsdanny 9

66- That doesn't make it right. There's a saying I'm about to butcher, "Right is right, even if no one likes it. Wrong is wrong, even if everyone does it." By the way, hi, nice to meet you. I turn 21 in 2 months and my first taste of alcohol was an accident when I was 2, from my grandpa's beer; my only other one was when my pina colada wasn't alcohol-free like it was supposed to, back when I was 13. Not everyone drinks. And it's not a religious thing(ha!), or a medical thing.. I just don't do it. Most of my friends don't either. My 25 year old girlfriend only did a little at three weddings. So not everyone drinks

131, usually I would thumb down comments like yours, but I'm so excited for the new red hot chili peppers album I have to give you a thumbs up.

I never thought the double post would happen to me, sorry :(

Just because it is illegal doesn't make it "wrong" either. There is no right or wrong for all people. Only what an individual wants to do/ not do.

I think drinking is only wrong if you're letting it controlyour life and if it's hurting the people around you. my boyfriend's dad harrassed me when he was drunk and then beat my boyfriend and his younger brothers. however I do know a lot of people that can control their actions when they drink.

if it wasn't wrong then why is it illegal? Your logic means that even though it's illegal to kill somebody, it's not wrong??????

82, I just wanna say that if you think that you have to drink to have fun then I feel so sorry for you. I used to drink and I can honestly say that my life has been a hundred times more fulfilling and fun now that I don't drink at all.

Sorry, I thumbed you down because you messed up you/you're way too many times.

157- I would say that it's illegal, not because it's wrong, but because people tend to abuse it.

I'm amused that 5 spelled 'your' and "your" correctly yet used them incorrectly. It's a step in the right direction. haha

at least she used the first "you're" correctly..

atomicbaboon 0

I'm just gonna throw this out there. one of the main reasons teens drink is because we're not supposed to. if it was legal not nearly as many people would.

CateXOX 0

I honestly don't understand why 5 is being thumbed down. She has a valid reason not to drink. While I accept the fact that many underage teens will drink, it's their personal choice to do that, and it doesn't make underage drinking right or wrong (even though legally it is wrong). It's also someone's personal choice not to drink even after they're of age. Leave opinions alone.

kellysmith69 1

then explain the logic that we are legally allowed to drink at 18 in Australia. our government isn't as naive as others, they know teenagers drink underage, at 18 you are an adult and are held responsible for your own actions.

karinaprism9 4

no no darling I wouldn't relate killing another human with drinking illegally, one is obviously more severe than the other. (didn't need to go as far as mentioning killing someone but hey if that's how you work...)

BrittanyPernell6 0

Sorry, but I have to bring up the old argument of why is it "right" for 18 yr olds to go be killed in combat but "wrong" for the next 18 yr old signed up for the same job to drink? Just saying if you can choose to die for your country you should be able to choose legally if you want to maybe wake up with a hangover.

157. I honestly hate you. It was also illegal to rebel against the brits. It was illegal to free slaves.

@34 no... Not really. The dumb teenagers, maybe. Kinda like the ones that don't realize that if their parents keep their vodka in the freezer, and they add water to replace what they drank, it won't miraculously not freeze. Hear about that quite often.

lucas18xx53 0

implying that you can't "live your life" without alcohol is kinda pathetic :/ I'm 15 and I don't drink (I want to be a singer and it damages your vocal chords) or do drugs or smoke, but still have fun and look forward to the future, you don't need alcohol to have a good time :) you just need your mates :)

tweetbaby14 18

if people's brains don't fully develop until 25 they why is the drinking age 21? I mean if brain development is the problem it should be raised.

stefx0xwallace 6

ya but not all teens who do drink become alcholics.. i drank on the weekends since i was 14... im now 22 and rarely drink so ya if ur gonna be an alcholic itll happen whether or not u drink while ur a teen

66 in some states if your with your parents then yes, you can have alcohol, but it depends on the state

fauxyhaha 0

dude, I'm 14 and I've had wine with my grandparents. I know sooo many kids my age that drink beer with their dads and stuff. haha and we all go to a Catholic School :))

5- Just because you varied in the usage of you 're/your doesn 't mean you know how to use them. Fellow FML grammar nazi's where are you when we need you most!

Yeah but no one knows how old op is anyway. so it doesn't matter!

lovethatpanda 0

um am I the only one who agrees with this girl? drinking underage is not cool. I don't know why everyone thinks it is. it's stupid and there are plenty of ways to entertain yourself without being a drunken moron all the time.

Link5794 18

You've got one life, so try not to end outdoing something stupid.

Nothing annoys me more than being told that all teenagers drink. No, not all teenagers drink.

@34, I waited until I was 21 to start drinking. I wanted to do things the legal way so I could simply enjoy it without that particular risk.

You realize that only the US is that strict about alcohol? Most other countries have a minimum drinking age of 16-18 and the people are perfectly fine

don't listen to these dumbasses telling you to lie... I promise your parents did the same thing when they were younger, just confess.... duhhh

DKParth13 5

maybe it's time both of you came to terms with your problems and get help (mummy- alcoholic, and presumably physically violent. You- drinking and making homemade versions of vodka)

she drinks some vodka on Fridays and you presume she's a violent alcoholic? may I presume you're an idiot...?

well, when you write that your life is a "ticking time bomb" it implies that something bad going to happen to you. granted, I don't know if she's an alcoholic or not but it doesn't give you the right to call me an idiot, so calm down it's just fml.

it's a ticking time bomb because she's gonna get busted. she's not going to get physically abused. she's just going to be confronted or maybe yelled out/grounded.

bitchslapped22 14

I think OP has more of a problem than the mother if she constantly sneaks vodka from her mother. She is probably more of an alcoholic than the mother if the mother only drinks on Fridays. Teens shouldn't drink, no matter who says otherwise.

98-you drink all your parents vodka and tell me what happens

take some from a friend or go to the store and get somebody to buy it for u or if u have no choice steal some

Yes, because jail would be so much better than getting grounded or yelled at.
