Today, I got mad at my parents and threatened to run away. Things got so bad that I packed a bag and left, planning to hide in my front yard to teach them a lesson. It's been two hours, and I'm still standing behind a bush in front of my house while they make no effort to look for me. FML

They will eventually look for you, parents are sneaky and they probably seen you go to your "hiding spot". My mom always used to tell me that she had eyes on the back of her head.


#37 There was really no need for that "correction". I think we all know the sentence stops when there are no more words to read…

Edit: never mind. Lol, he deleted his comment.

Hahaha . They def know that you are just looking for attention, and they also know that you have no intention of running away. They probably figure you are somewhere close and have no way of taking care of yourself so you will be back. YDI

So let me see if I'm understanding this correctly. You threatened your parents to run away and hid in your bushes. And apparently while still standing in the bushes, decided to post it on FML. Wow! FYL

Go on then. Run away. I bet you didn't even pack a toothbrush,so you could scrub the turd out of your mouth. Which I'm sure you let your mouth overload your ass,and now you will be eating crow when you are done "teaching them a lesson."

56, No, that means that you're a spoiled brat.

Parents: "Happy Birthday."
Kid: "An iPhone, thank you so much, wait, this isn't the iPhone 5, this is the iPhone 4S, I TOLD YOU I WANTED THE IPHONE 5, I HATE YOU, I'M RUNNING AWAY FROM YOU FOREVER AND NEVER COMING BACK."

See how stupid you'd sound if you ran away just because you didn't get what you wanted?

Whenever I see FMLs that are very blatantly YDI, I wonder if the other party posted it pretending to be that person so they can show them how stupid they are.
I bet the parents actually posted this.

#103 - Agreed. Too many people on here are too quick at spilling the beans. ;) It really ruins reading the comments. Such as the 20 comments saying "how old are you? 10?" and "idiot". Sad times

I think Petepoop should just leave FML. He's always poppin' up, saying dumb shit, and getting buried. Not saying you should kill yourself, buut... please leave. Right now.

I hadn't thought about that, good point... But some people really are so self-absorbed that they think they're completely justified. It can just as well be one or the other. I wanted to run away from my house a few times so i can't say i was more mature as a child but I had an alcoholic father and a mother with dementia so I'd like to think my feelings were at least partially justified then XD

160 - FMLs are rarely written during the actual event. Usually, they're written afterwards and put in the present tense to match up with the "Today..." format. He likely submitted it a while after admitting defeat and slinking back in the door with his tail between his legs.

My little sister threatened to run away once. My mom helped her pack her bag XD

She didn't go anywhere, it became too real after that and she realized she had no where to go.

same thing happened to my friend only she actually left and a neighbor called her mom going "your daughter is walking down the street with a suitcase and a backpack" her mom was like "I know"
but she came back because he felt too bad running away… :P

I was thinking they're not looking because OP wasn't hiding in a great place. Behind a bush? They can probably see OP perfectly and are laughing their asses off.

People like you are the reason why we can't have nice things. I'm guessing you've done this before and your parents know you're an attention seeker. Luckily, they are wise enough not to give you the attention. YDI all over.

By  MissMess  |  12

You idiot, give your parents some credit. They clearly know you are just attention seeking, which you have proven by hiding behind the bush! Typical 'look at me' teenage behaviour!
