Today, I got lost at Best Buy. Meanwhile, my mom freaked out, and they called out my name over the intercom. When I walked up to the desk and they saw I was 17, the employees burst out laughing. FML

It happens.

Well that was certainly a well thought out and insightful comment.

No, that doesn't happen to most people.

15- Not once they get past a certain age anyways. For example, I haven't gotten separated in my mom in a store since I was 15 years old!

Generally, qualification for first comment... 1st comment = worst comment.

The pressure of getting first comment strikes again!

The employees burst out laughing after you saw you were 17? Grammar fail.

This actually legit happened to me, except in walmart

It's really funny when they want to use the cute pet names. You get to see the kids bright red in the face if they show up.

64- icarly sucks its full of wanking no good buggers

Those employees are douchebags though. There's no reason to burst out laughing in front of you and your mom, save it and laugh later instead of being a jackass.

There were so many amazing buys who wouldn't get lost in the prices?!?!

My mother would do the same thing. I'm 19 and if we separate at a store she insists on both of us having our phones out "just in case". I feel your pain. :(

"No, I'm not going to call her cell phone, this will be much easier"

It's a possibility. I'm 16 and I have never, nor will I probably until I get a job, had a cell phone.

Well that sucks.

51 according to whoever put you at -1 you are lying and everyone anywhere owns a cell phone at any age.

62- That is not true. I knew someone at my last college that doesn't have a cell phone. What about homeless people? Not everyone in the world has one.

Woah guys, sorry for the über lame comment. I honestly don't even remember posting that. Damn, I need some sleep.

68- You do realize 62 was being sarcastic, right?

Yes 68 because a homeless person's favorite thing to do is to walk into best buy and look at the things they can't have.

I used to work at Best Buy and something like this happened once. Except it was more like, "TELL JESSE THAT I'M LOOKING FOR HIM AND IF HE IS NOT UP HERE IN FIVE MINUTES, HE HAS TO WALK HOME." Good times.

If you're 17 and got lost at Best Buy, I'm going to guess that it has happened more than once. Sounds like mama had a good reason to call you to the front.

I've gotten lost in a large Walmart once when I was 24. They're tricky to navigate.

The Best Buys I've been in are pretty big. Maybe OP just stopped to look at something and they just got separated and OP either a) doesn't have a cell phone, b) their cell was dead or not on them, or c) mom didn't try calling the phone in the first place and instead flipped out and ran to an employee.

I've gotten lost in large stores dozens of times. Getting lost does not equate to being slow , it sometimes just happens.

unknown_user5566 26

Okay, okay. Fair enough. I still think mom likely called her via the intercom due to OP getting lost often, though. But I shall admit defeat and retreat back to my hiding place on the idea that 17 year olds shouldn't get lost in stores.

Annnnd a double post, the cherry on top of my Fail Sundae. Awesome.

30- now now... We've all had our fail sundaes...

I'm wondering whether OP really meant "lost" or was she just "separated from mom". No matter how big the store is, you can always walk to the front (eventually). I'm not sure how one gets "lost".

Go wank yourself dead

87- Uh, what?

Sorry, typo

Moms are awesome at embarassing people -_-

My brother and sister really embarrassed my mom once. They wanted her to come to the front of the store so the called her over the intercom by a fake name that she would know. The name was Anita Bath. I'm not saying she needed a bath but she knew their kind of humor.

Agreed :o My boyfriend was with me and my mum when we were camping and she kept asking me if I wanted to go put on her "sexy see-through shirt for him". It was funny but I didn't get embarrassed.. I almost did, but no xD

You are 14... Your Mom is a C*NT!!!

Lol, op, your pain! I feel it! I've seen it happen more than once, and I've been a victim of it before.

You should have acted special to save face. Then again..

Yeah, some moms don't want you wasting money on 'Lost' DVDs.

I see what you tried to do there.

Is it bad that I actually found that quite funny :S *conflicted*

Aw, come on, that was funny.
