Today, I fell asleep on the couch. My parents didn't wake me up, went to bed and set our burglar alarm. If I trip a motion sensor, a siren will go off. The motion sensor in my living room is pointed directly at me and I have to pee. It's been 2 hours. FML

pff, their fault, would have gotten up anyway.

I wouldn't hold it in if I were you, it's just a siren, not a cage of lions.

I don't know how OP survived to last 2 hours

yeah I agree, so what if he trips the alarm? he can just turn it off immediately...

I would have had the "fuck it" mindset and not cared. It's their fault for being neglectful.

"I wanna play a game."

This's just like Mission Impossible when he's a couple feet off of the floor and that drop of sweat that's about to fall off his face is you needing to piss...

You obviously have a phone, so text your parents?

This isn't such a bad idea actually. He HAS a phone, how could he have posted the fml otherwise? A computer doesn't seem very likely in this situation.. I mean, he can't move or the sensor will notice him..

His/her parents are asleep. Unless they leave their phone on loud (which is stupid when you're sleeping), they wouldn't get the message

Well maybe they do.. You can't know that..

FMLs aren't always posted the day they happen.

My phone is on loud and vibrate when I sleep, only way my alarm will wake me in the morning.

Them saying "It's been 2 hours" suggests that this was posted as it occurred

exactly. Since OP told us that it has been 2 hours, it means that OP typed the fml during that time period. If op didn't, then they would have specified the complete wait time. critical thinking skills, people.

Well the FML wouldn't have sounded as good if it was written in past tense.

You should just get up and go pee. Maybe next time they will wake you up.

But OP is just trying to be nice in return. The parents let him sleep so he wants to let them sleep too. Seems like a sweet person but eventually can only hold it so long.

#30 it's not sweet, it's stupid to sleep or sit there still for two hours, and he/she had to use the bathroom, I would get up and not give a shit!

Not saying it wasn't stupid but it is still sweet. The parents probably saw how dead tired the OP was and allowed him to continue to sleep on the couch. Not waking him up was a nice thing for them to do. Other than trying to return the favour because they didn't wake him up, I don't see why the OP wouldn't just trigger the alarm? People make it seem like the parents were assholes. I see them as parents not wanting to interrupt their kid's rest. Something I would value if I were tired enough to fall asleep on the couch myself. Why have a I don't give a shit attitude to someone not wanting to wake you up?

I wouldn't hold it in if I were you, it's just a siren, not a cage of lions.

some alarms will dial the police and other emergency services. if OP's doesn't do that, it will at least wake up everyone in the house and possibly the neighbors too, though.

If it's that big of a deal to trip your siren then just yell for your parents.

Don't you know the code? We have one too, so.. Maybe you can get up really fast, run to the alarm, turn it off and then go pee? About your parents who will probably wake up; it's their fault anyway. So it'd be really unfair if they'd get mad at you. Good luck!

Get up, run around, then pretend you are sleeping again when your parents come down. That will ensure they wake you up next time.

if the alarm is going off how could you pretend to be sleeping...

awesomness at its finest

Your parents would rather be woken up than have to replace the couch because you pissed on it.

can I just call bs on this one, your alarm if set to home (which it would be since you're at home) does not turn on the motion sensors only the door sensors

We have a night alarm with motion sensors. It's not that unusual!

I'm guessing this moderated comment was the same thing I was thinking, our old alarm system had a setting to activate the motion sensors, or just use the doors to trip it, so at night you wouldn't set the the alarm off to use the toilet. Any alarm that can't have motion sensors disactivated seems like a stupid idea to me

hope you can hold it till morning
