By have it your way - United States - Rochester
Today, during a boat trip with my boyfriend's family, I got seasick and went to the side of the boat to puke. A current rocked the boat so badly that I fell overboard, prompting a panicked rescue and my boyfriend's mom muttering that I'm a pathetic attention whore. FML

Glad you're ok, OP. I'm wondering if mom was more upset that you were getting all the attention instead of HER.

I grew up in FL and know that it is SUPER easy to get tossed overboard if someone is hanging over the side OR if you are standing by the rail and the driver hits a wave wrong. Again, I'm glad you're ok.

If she had, her boyfriend's mother would've probably accused her for faking it. It's pretty sad the mom didn't care whether she could swim or not. What a bitch. OP, talk to your boyfriend about this. Make sure he keeps his mother in line.

I highly doubt his mom would've thought she faked drowning... And at no point did it say whether or not she could swim, the mom probably said all these things after she was pulled out of the water not whilst she was in it.

Two things, though: it'll keep you on top of the water, though it won't necessarily save your life. So it's a personal flotation device, not a life jacket.
And wearing one also won't prevent you from being thrown overboard.
