Today, I got laid off. Walking out of the building, I saw someone on crutches and thought, "Hey, at least I can still walk." Two hours later, I blew out my knee playing basketball. FML

Now you can be that guy on crutches that makes other people feel better about their situations! But I agree, that really does suck.

That blows. Lay off the exercise for a while.

full of positive energy

It's called cycle of life my friend

So his life sucks because he got laid off? What about the bad karma? I thought we were a heartless community that says, down goes the guy who deserved it.

At least he's still alive? I hope i didn't jinx him.

That's happened to me. With all sorts of medical issues I have, I always boasted that I'd never broken a bone. Last year, I broke my wrist and a few months later, I broke my ankle and leg. I jinxed myself big time!

POSITIVE ENERGY!!!!

No shit, he's on fucking crutches.

20 - I think he's making a reference to the lay-off.

25 - Also blowing out your knee/ that blows. Clever puns, but nobody got them D;

Be happy with what you have because there's no warning most times when you might lose it.

At least you're still aliv-*gets shot*

Wow talk about bad luck. I would not gamble today, maybe even wait a week.

I wouldn't gamble at all, given that he's unemployed with finite funds.

The good news is that after hard times, there's good times. Heal up, take a break, then get back out there and find a better job.(:

I've always heard that bad things come in threes. This is only two...

Hopefully his girlfriend didn't leave him because he wanted to split up the household chores :-O

Show it anyway

How is that karma..?

I don't see what OP did wrong according to the FML. It's not bad to say you're grateful that you're an abled person.

I think 7 is just too used to those karma FMLs

This isn't karma. OP was thinking his situation could be a lot worse when he saw someone on crutches and then found himself in pretty much the same situation after he hurt his knee.

He was looking on the bright side and then had it ruined by an ironic situation. How is that karma? It's sad.

maybe you should read he said i thought he didint say it aloud like a asshole

Get better and don't loose your positivity even though it's hard

That my American friend is what us Brits call, Sods Law.

Good luck finding another job, I hope it gets better from now, sometimes you need to hit the bottom so you can rise back up!

I thought myself unfortunate when I had no shoes, until I saw the man with no feet...who had stolen my shoes

isn't that like right out of street Jesus by areosmith?

I'm gonna feel so stupid if it is
