Thats avatar. I always liked that show when o was young though.
69- I watched the whole thing on Netflix earlier this summer too! Then, I proceeded to watch all of The Leged of Kora 1st season. Whoever hates on anything related to the avatar series (except the non-animated movie because that was absolute shit) can go suck a herpes-penis.
My boyfriend and I were in the pool one day and started a massive splash fight, pretending we were water bending at each other. (Waterbending Agni Kai? Is that even a thing?) We are in our 20s. There is nothing "stupid" about Avatar, except the movie. FYL though, OP. Hope your son, and your house and belongings, are ok.
No he'll try that on the TV :P Anyway, the show is awesome and is an unseparated part of my childhood, was just thinking about it two minutes before I ran into that post. I absolutely LOVE that show! :) The movie sucked, delete the movie and kill the actors lol Tell him to be an air bender ;)
92, my mother works for CPS. All those crime shows that people tend to think are overly dramatic happen every day. It is unsafe for an 8 year old to walk around by themselves because of all the sickos in the world. I've heard stories that make my skin crawl. Plus, obviously OP's kid could not handle being alone.
135- Holy shit, people are starting to remember me?? Does this mean I'm a recognized regular now? Oh happy days! But yea, my comments on this FML are pretty bad fails. They tend to be that way when I'm not part of a fandom, but try to be funny anyway. Feel free to downvote, no hard feelings.
I think we all don't have to face all these deceit and lies from our spouse...in the case of mine when i got sick and tired of all the lies and deceit i had to contact a friend of mine to get me the contact of one of the best hackers ..then i met ENRIQUE LEWIS..He saved me from the lies of my cheating husband by hacking his phone and brought me results of his social media (Facebook,call log,imessage. Gmail and also whats-app).Incase you need help with hacking any phone or any job contact him via email [email protected] OR WHATS-APP +1(628)203-7005.he is cheap and affordable am very sure he will help you
Ah, Avatar: The Last Airbender...best show ever. Be thankful he doesn't try to blood bend.
Why was your eight year old son left home alone with access to some type of flame? That's what baby sitters are for, maybe you should consider one next time
An 8 year old doesn't necessarily need a baby sitter always. This one sounds like he does though. At 8 I was babysitting my younger siblings for the hour or so in between getting home from school until my mum came home. Mighta been a similar thing here, like he was only alone for a very short amount of time. It takes kids a few minutes to get into a heck of a lot of trouble.
Sadly, OP lives in Virginia which doesn't have a minimum age for being left home alone (according to latchkey kids). The lack of a law doesn't mean common sense cannot be used though. My state requires a home alone kid to be 12; that's an appropriate age (for most kids), I think.
Seriously... I smell some overprotective parents a-brewin'. Setting an age is pointless, a child can be perfectly capable of taking care of themselves at 8, or they might need til 15 to be left alone. I will admit that the younger the child is, they probably will not handle emergencies very well. Intruders, earthquake, etc. I knew what to do in case of a tornado when I was 8, anything else and I might've been screwed.
I don't know why you all assume he was alone. Obviously the kitchen was no longer on fire when dad returned or there would be no house to return to. My immediate thought upon reading this fml was that the kid had a shitty babysitter that wasn't paying attention until the house was on fire.
This doesn't even mean the babysitter was not paying attention. OP may have other kids. The babysitter may have been changing a diaper or something upstairs. The babysitter may have even just gone to the bathroom. It doesn't take long for a fire to spread and if they were paying attention enough to get it out before it destroyed the entire house they were probably not being irresponsible.
I set fire To my kitchen, watched it burn as my mom came hoooome
