Today, I flew to Dubai, en route to my new job in Afghanistan. Both of my bags were lost, my debit card was frozen in London, the next flight was cancelled, and I can't get a hotel room. I'm in the richest city in world with no money and no room. Happy New Year. FML

Feel bad for you. I hope you get money and a room. I wish you the best of luck. Happy new year 2012!

Hey, in a few days you'll be in the poorest country in the world, so you'll fit right in. Consider this ordeal as training for your new post.

They should make a movie about this.

You are so right! It would make millions.

Would be a great new Family Guy episode..

first world problems

Op could bar hop, find some trouble make the night out of it no reason to get down.

Don't forget no clothes!

Mission impossible 2 time have to unfreeze the credit card

25- Is it just me, or has Family Guy been going down the drains for the last two years?

Well if you're a woman you can *ahem ahem*

Your soooo right I would love the movie

70- I noticed that. It really grinds my gears!

Late night partying on new years, get wasted= hangover 3: Dubai

Yea! That would be a good movie :)

Let's hope OP watched The Terminal or he will starve to death

Happy New Year!

*sigh* Ohhhh Jessica.....

Well OP, if your debit card hasn't thawed since London, I'd suggest taking it outside in Dubai. Problem solved. … :D

Job in Afghanistan aye? Must be the terrorists. Merry New Year from the Taliban! Oh yes, I went there…

Happy new year!!!

Uhhh I'm pretty sure the penalties for theft are a little more severe in the UAE.

He will get his hands cut off if he did, no Joke !

And I'm pretty sure they all know some kind of karate there

How's he going to get there without a flight or money?

He's just stuck on an extended stop over. It happens all the time, you just sleep in the airport n get on with your life.

How do you expect to get there? I wish you the best. Good luck and happy new year.

Dubai is not the richest city in the world nor is afghanistan the poorest

UAE is among the richest countries in the world and Afghanistan is the poorest in the world not in Africa. For the sake of the jokes, these facts are close enough.

The UAE, at least as far as I know, is the richest Country in the world.

I think Sweden could be actually or switzerland

yet instead of using your phone to do something about it, you post on FML

Good point. Lol... Call someone then Fml.

A phone won't do much, unless he knows somebody in Dubai.

I think a lot of FMLs are made up anyway

72-How do you know that's not exactly what OP did?

I don't know but... Ur right he could have it would have been smart...

She probably posted on FML after it all happened?.

Ouch. And I thought I had it bad. Stuck at the bus station. FYL.

Feel sorry for you OP hope your situation gets better.

that street corner is lookin mighty fine right about now, and just think, you are in the richest city in the world, so you can get more money. good luck.
