Today, I gave my son a fork, so I could try teaching him how to eat with one. So far, he's been doing all the teaching. He's taught me that if I get anywhere near him when he has a fork, I'll get shanked. FML
I agree, your life sucks 38 184
You deserved it 6 670

Gixie tells us more.

Alright. Where to start. 1) I submitted this FML and someone liked it so much he decided to submit it as his own with a few modifications. That's why there are comments about "daddy". 2) My son is 18 months, is developmentally challenged and just learning. He did not actually get me. 3) It is a learning fork for children which has metal, rounded prongs so it doesn't hurt if he gets you or himself. 4) I did take away his fork to which he screamed and cried. When he settled down, I gave it back and he was content to stab his pancake. 5) Have you people never been stabbed by plasticware or a spork? That shit hurts! 6) I do not live in Ghana.

I'm just curious as to where he learned to do that.

Son problems. Maybe try to start with plastic utensils?

Preppin' him for prison. Now teach him how to hide it.

Plastic still hurts and can do damage. At least you sort of have a chance that the metal may be dull.

The sides of plastic spoons are sharper than the knives! That shit is dangerous!

13 - It's a fork. It's like a sword: it's still going to hurt like a bitch, even if it's dull.

13, are you insinuating that you'd rather be stabbed by a metal fork than a plastic one...?

In kindergarten my brother shanked a kid with a plastic knife... His arm was cut open and had to get it stitched... All of this because the kid called my brother short. So yea plastic utensils are still dangerous.

Umm maybe you should teach him that it is wrong to shank people

Probably before he was even conceived. Now we know why he was the fastest swimmer. The competition was dead.

In my mind I think it's a little baby learning about utensils and thinks its funny when daddy/mommy is in pain yelling ow. Probably doesn't know better yet.

14- in that case your brain must be more twisted than TheGodDamnJoker himself.

Disney channels new show, "life inside the pin."

You taught him well.

You know what they say, you can lead a horse to water, but it might try to stab you with a fork.

I think you should wait a little bit before you introduce butter knives xD

Please tell me its a plastic baby fork and not an adult sized one.

Get those kiddie ones that are plastic and curved and stop trying to steal his Kraft Mac & Cheese! :P

I see you've got a lot on your plate. Maybe just forket about it for now and try later. Spooner or later he'll come around.

I'll give you the forket. Well played.

I believe it would be well plate

How old is your son? I'm assuming he's young since you're teaching him how to eat with one. If that's true then I don't think you should be worried about it all that much

Should start punishing him early so he won't act like this when he gets older!

If he's just now learning to use a fork, he's probably only like, 1 year old. He's playing. Give the kid a break.

I don't think she should punish him. Simply take it away as soon as he does it tell him why he shouldn't do it. "It's not nice it can hurt someone" and give it back to him if he continues take it for a longer period and again tell him why. He's probably a baby the mom shouldn't act like the baby is stronger than her. Not much of an fml for me.

If you don't correct this behavior now, it's only going to get worse.
