Today, as I was taking a shower, I felt something run down my back. Assuming it was water, I lathered up my loofah and scrubbed my back with it, only to hear a gross crunching sound. I pulled back my loofah to see a smushed, twitching cockroach that I had smeared on my back. FML

Hey all, OP here To everyone wondering: yes, it was disgusting. After freaking out for a little, I just tried my best not to puke and washed the cockroach guts off my back. I smashed the half-dead cockroach with a shampoo bottle just to put the poor thing out of its misery and threw out the loofah. Speaking of the loofah, it was one of those really hard thick sponges, which is probably why the cockroach's shell got crushed by it (I also thought cockroaches' shells were too tough to be crushed like that, but maybe the steam from the shower softened it?) Anyway, though it was really really gross, the one good thing that came out of this is that my FML actually got posted, which is pretty cool. Thanks guys :)

Death by loofah. I now know what I want printed on my headstone.

There's another very similar FML involving loofahs and cockroaches

isn't their exoskeleton too hard to be smashed with a loofah..? ^^

I thought that, most cockroaches I've met have pretty tough shells.

Maybe OP scrubs really hard?

How did it get up there?

It could have dropped from the ceiling onto OP"s back.

Today I was in the shower minding my own business when some giant animal came inside and crushed me with a big sponge. FML
