By a stupid jackass - 22/06/2012 01:28 - United States - New York

Today, I got lunch with a girl I really like. On the way, for some idiotic reason I decided it would be a good idea to show off by jumping up to high-five the red hand on a traffic sign. I ended up slipping and slamming full-force into the pole. I now have a bruise on my face. FML

You can always make the story sound more manly over lunch..?

Why do boys seem to think that girls like it or will be impressed by you doing stupid things? Trust me, she would have probably rather you just have been you than try to be "funny" like that. I know first dates can be nerve-wracking, but just act like normal next time; be yourself.

Or just completely make one up. Allan on two and a halt men got hit by flying toast, but he told that super gorgeous lady it was a bar fight.

"Yeah, the pole had a problem with me. I kicked his ass, but not before it gave me this here bruise." that's believable, right?

It happened while he was with her. Hence; "I tried to show off..." if he wasn't with her who was he showing off to... the sign? Therefore, he cannot lie about it. The bruise isn't as much a problem as the fact that he hit his face trying to show off right next to her.

First of all, she was there. As someone already covered. Second of all, to 19, the correct way to spell it is "lying".

It does not say anywhere that she was with him, it says "on the way". That leaves the possibility that they would just meet up for lunch.

90, it also said that he "showed off". That was most likely to said girl.

I find it extremely annoying when guys try showing off by doing stupid things. Reminds me of when I was in junior high and guys would show off by hitting stop signs. I thought it was pretty stupid then too...

At least you had lunch with her!

Say you got in a fight, it'll help you get a second date :D

It appears to me as though the girl may have been walking with him. Unless lying turns her on I doubt that would get him a second date..

he said "on the way" so MAYBE he wasn't w/ her yet. i'm just guessing though, haha. but if that is the case, i don't think many girls think fighting is all that attractive... i don't like it at least! everyone has their klutzy moments. honesty is the best policy. lol

He was most likely with her. Otherwise, I don't know who he'd be "showing off" to. Instant YDI for thinking that's impressive. But plus one brownie point for at least acknowledging it was idiotic, OP.

What the fuck compelled you to do this? YDI, but whatever you do, don't tell her what actually happened

As the comments under 3 already mentioned, the girl was WITH OP when he hit the sign and slipped. She had to have been. How else could he have "shown off" to someone that wasn't there?

We need to move jackasses, like yourself, to a private island somewhere so you and your future spawns can't screw up the rest of the population. Good grief.

...For slapping a sign? I'd hate to think what you'd do to other people on this site.

Charlie Brown has spoken. TO THE ISLAND WITH YOU!!!

Really 5? That's what the thumb down feature is for. Don't take life so seriously sometimes.

There was nothing reflexive in your sentence, 5. I'd rather have a love struck puppy who made a mistake in the heat of the money with a girl than someone who degrades someone and tries to sound smart while doing so by using "yourself" improperly.

5- I agree. And let's send you there with him.

It is the type of thing I would do when I was alone, just for fun. Doing it to show off is just stupid.

Should've heeded the sign and stopped.... YDI

guys should realize that when they show off it just makes them look stupid...even if they do succeed in whatever they're trying to do, it's still dumb

Unless you can be Batman... Always choose to be Batman.

You aren't the first man to act like an idiot because of a girl. Just tell her you were attacked on the street by a gang of vicious thieves or something.

It's implied in the fml by "show off" that the girl was present when the he did this. So I don't think lying is going to help.

You are lucky it's just a bruise you ended up with. What is the thought process I wonder for doing something as dumb as that? Are you related to Bam Margera?

Wow! So hitting a sign means he's related to Bam? That's like saying because I touched a skate board today I'm related to Tony hawk.

Sadly, sarcasm is lost on most people. What I meant was... Never mind why waste my time explaining.

If he WAS related to Bam, he should've used that to impress her instead of running into a pole. :-D
