Today, as a condominium security guard, I had to enter an old lady's apartment to supervise the mandatory maintenance taking place inside. I commented on the lakeside view from her window and mentioned, "This is a pretty nice view up here isn't it?" It turns out that she's blind. FML

Not really your fault you were just trying to make small talk.

I'm sure that she is confronted with that situation a lot, OP. I bet that she just brushed it off. Ever see when Ryan Seacrest tried to high five a blind guy?

At least she's not deaf, right? She can hear the lakeside and all it's majestic nature sounds?

I'm pretty sure you can't hear much from inside an apartment. Unless there's a huge tree outside?

You can hear plenty inside an apartment. I live next to the major road in the town. I keep my media center streaming music all the time since i would much rather hear music than trucks driving by.

20... What do trees have to do with it???

yeeeah but lakes don't usually make as much sound as a major road.

I think you kinda missed the point #1...

Not really your fault you were just trying to make small talk.

I guess she didn't see the humor in the situation

At least she can't see who you are. I'd probably switch personalities and pretend to be someone else.

So many sexual innuendos here.

How is this any where near sexual?

#11, you're not familiar with that old "I'll keep my eye out for you" joke? I would tell it, but that was the punch line.

How immature do you have to be to find sexual innuendos in this FML?

maybe "i had to enter an old lady."

That's, like, one sexual innuendo though, and a pretty poor one at that.

Bet you were blinded by embarrassment...

I too also find embarrassment creeping up on me and covering my eyes from behind! Glad to know I'm not alone.

That was awesome!

I bet she didn't see that one coming.

Eye am sure it was just a lot make out. There was only a sight chance that she was blind.

When life gets you down, grab a snickers! You didn't know..

this is more like a twix moment... need a moment, grab a twix :-D

Well that must've made the following hour the awkwardest hour of your life.

I can think of more awkward situations...

I bet he felt horrible as well.

At least he wasn't trying to show girlfriends mother a picture his suit for prom on his phone and she scrolled to the right to find a picture of her daughter, naked.

Don't worry so much, how were you supposed to know; just apologize, OP.

She probably didn't take it too offensively, it's probably happened before.
