Today, I got pulled over by a state trooper for speeding. When he saw I had something in my pocket, he began to ask if it was a weapon. After arguing for a few minutes I was put in handcuffs. I was too embarrassed to pull the tampon out my pocket. FML

Well I would have. That would have made him extremely uncomfortable. And probably more embarassed than you... Soo... Get over yourself? Lol :]

was it in your vag before hand? if not who cares?

agreed your a dumb ass the tampon was embarrassing but now everyone will see you in hand cuffs on cops fyl

Are you stupid ? wats worse, handcuffed and possibly put to jail or showing one mere human-being your stupid tampon?

You definitely deserve it for not just taking it out of your pocket! In fact, my girlfriend always told me one of her friends got OUT of tickets by telling a male cop she was hurrying home because she was on her period and needed a tampon. Guys don't want to know about that, he would have been more embarrassed than you! He would just let you go to avoid hearing about it. Even if it didn't work, you HAVE to cooperate with a cop who thinks you have a weapon. Of course you got arrested. You probably won't ever see the cop again if you just cooperate, so there's no reason to be embarrassed.

what is this girl ten???!!

agreed. it's a tampon...

in your pocket?? dont u have a bag?? O.o

Wow a tampon, who cares you act like the cop doesnt know that women get their period. Ugh maybe it's time to grow up a little and stop being so embaressed about dumb shit like that.

Am I the only one who is wondering how big the tampon must have been for it to look like a weapon? o_O Perhaps that was why she was embarrassed lol.

I was thinking that as well, that's gotta be a fucking huge tampon to look like a gun or a knife!!

Just because you do something stupid doesn't exactly make you a dumbass...even though OP totally deserved it.

i feel there's some details missing here, like, was it used, and was it used appropriately...

why be embarrassed? it's just a tampon..

not as funny as your face

real childish dude. go back to playing your barbies and trying to draw boobies on them.

with* your barbies

Maybe we're all getting the FML wrong and OP is male? O.O He could use them for nosebleeds. ;D

Well they said their name is Victoria. >_>

Victor Victoria. Complicated situation, really.

yeah what an idiot, he's a grown man its not like he wouldn't know OR CARE about an f-ing tampon

well now she just share that to the whole world.

ydi for getting periods

she can't help it idiot. it's a natural way of life.

Yeah, cuz it's stoppable? Not.

you idiots hes making a troll joke

successful troll is successful

god I hate girls who don't understand sarcastic jokes

[email protected] danielle and her fgas fatty

how is she fat? do u find amusement by calling someone fat? I'm not trying to sound like a bitch. but for real dude. grow up. be respectful. people like you often get made fun of if you were at my school. so get real.

I swear feminists are like the easiest people to troll of all time, it's been years now and they still get all emo whenever someone tells em to go back to the kitchen. Here's a tip, If you all stop taking the bait and falling for such obvious trolls, sayings like go back to the kitchen will die off.

your mom should feel very disappointed. your a douche.

25, 28, 83, and 92 got troll'd hard.

93 can suck it bloody. :) I'm not mad, just stating the obvious.

wow just one troll made most of u start gettin ur panties in a bunch

I'm a girl and I thought it was funny... lol it's a joke and people need to chill out (;

joke? it's not really funny. something a 5 yr old would say :P

I now understand what a troll is :)

Show it anyway

Yes he does dumbass.

he has no right? dude that's the police officers job, they should ask and have to if it's suspicious, you're one of those guys that says "they have no right to take away my heroin and stop me from going Chris Benwa on my family.

you're retarded. he has every right to ask if you have a weapon or not.

Actually I'm taking a criminal justice course in college and the officer has every right to ASK but no right to search her. That would be an unreasonable search. If that were the case then every officer could search you at anytime because you have a cell phone in your pocket or Chapstick. Your rights were violated, you should consult the chief of police about this. Also, I find it somewhat amazing that this officer can find such a thing while your sitting down in a car. He must have really been super observant. Anyways, speed kills, slow down before you end up killing yourself and/or someone else. YD the ticket.

How were OP's rights violated 30? All I read was that she refused to show the officer what was in his/her pockets. Nowhere did it say the officer searched the OP, but that the OP was hancuffed for not showing the tampon which is part of his/her rights, but (s)he can still get arrested.

nobody said that he could search her

37 do you realize you're underwater?

40, your picture is hilarious.

44 I know.

Yes, I do know that I'm "underwater" in my picture.

9 That's the shittiest spelling I've seen, I'm pretty sure it's Chris Benoit.

hey 30, it looks like you're going to fail your class. anyone subject to a stop can be handcuffed. as for searchig for a weapon, I don't see that a search tool place. but even if the cop had searched her, that is well within his rights. she has the right to refuse a search at which point the cop could arrest her for obstruction and get his search.

hey 70, go f*ck yourself. You don't know what your talking about. Oh and if you plan on saying sh*t back, don't bother. Your not worth my time fighting with. Get a life.

If the lump it made in her pocket looked suspicious that falls under the plain sight section of reasonable searches. If you're not familiar with plain sight as a reason for a search I do believe you will be failing that law course.

wow your dumb! he's has every right. it's called officer safety.

You're both right/wrong. Maybe. I'm pretty sure that as long as she doesn't reach for it, he doesn't have the right to anything. Howeverrrr... If OP got into an argument over it, she probably then gave him enough reason to call it a safety issue, in which case he has right to handcuff her. OP- Call it a pen.. Lipgloss.. Chapstick.. Whatever you want. If he asks to see it, show him and he'll be the embarrassed one. I'd rather show him herpes cream than get arrested.

emtlindsay - 70 is right, you're not doing well in that class if you think they can't search her for that. they can for many reasons, probable cause, arguing, etc..

hahahahhahahaha u guys arguing with Lindsay are idiots I'm majoring in criminal justice as well and I took it in high school and we just so happen to be covering search and seizure...a stop doesn't necessarily mean they can be handcuffed aka arrested...and he has every right to ask if she has a weapon and frisk(NOT SEARCH) her at which point he wouldve felt the tampon knowing it couldn't have been a weapon(if he wanted to be a dick and "make sure" it wasn't a weapon then he can go into her pockets)...and she has every right to deny a search

As many of you have said, there is nothing here that says she was searched. However, refusing to show the officer what is in her pocket when he suspects it is a weapon allows him to place her under arrest. As soon as she is placed under arrest the police officer is allowed to search her for weapons and means of escape to ensure both his and her safety. If you are under arrest you cannot refuse the search. You can withdraw your consent only when you volunteer for a search. The most she could have done was request a female officer to complete the search. To the two people who say they are Criminal Justice students: Spend more time studying and less time on FML because you were both wrong.

I_am_that_guy - You say he can't search her but can go into her pockets? Erm, same thing. More generally to you and Lindsay - The FML never says he searched her. It's implied that she refused to tell or show him what was in her pocket and that that made him suspicious and after a brief argument he arrested her for being 'suspicious'.

your an idiot, of course he has the right to ask if she has a weapon... HE'S A.COP.... I swear people just keep getting dumber

30- ah, you fail. I wouldn't be expecting to pass if you think like that. you've been doing the course and all but how long for? and what country? they're all different so you have no right to say something like that to the police person. thanks:) xx

That is actually true. Then again, the cop might have shot at her, thinking it was a getaway.

Was it used? O.o

It's only a tampon, it's not that embarassing. I mean, I can understand you not wanting it on obvious display, but he did ask a serious question, I think in those circumstances it's ok to explain what it is, and show it if necessary. Also, you shouldn't have been speeding. The laws are there for a reason.

seriously can someone block this lifeles lady from posting? please?

everyone, it's Michael Cera!

coming from a guy named "biggerthanurs". don't insult others for there comments beacuse chances are yours aren't any better. If you can't have done sense of matuirty in your name it voids the purpose of acting above another. specially' one that's above you.

fuck the laws

yeah, they are there to be broken

BiggerThenUrs - Your username is spelt wrong. :P However, more seriously, can you really say I don't have a life when you've obviously noticed I comment a lot and therefore must have seen all my comments and therefore spent a fair bit of time on FML yourself. Also, I obviously do have a life as I'm alive you idiot. And I'm not forcing you to read my comments, so why don't you ignore them? Or get yourself blocked for being a rude prick. Zyzter - I'm going to assume you were talking to BiggerThenUrs. Underaegis - Exactly. Dius & Chris - Actually, in principle the laws were made to stop people doing bad things, since then more and more have been created and so there are now laws about everything. However, they weren't made to be broken (you're thinking of rules :P), otherwise we'd have a situation where nothing would be illegal even at the end where we shouldn't need laws to tell us not to do something.

How can you be old enough to drive, and still embarassed by carrying tampons? On average, a girl will have been having her period at least 3-4 years before she could get a driver's liscense.

Lol I drive, but if I'm at the store with my mother when I pick up tampons I make her carry them.

My name is Abbie toooo!!

Lol weird!!!! I also am wanting to be a vet, and Ireland is the place I most want to visit. Dang you sound just like me! o_O

Abbie looks way better than Abbie :)

Unfortunately I can guess which Abbie you are referring to :(

So you would rather get arrested then pull a fucking tampon out of your pocket!? Wow YDi

Yea I you should definitely be more embarrassed from the handcuffs and walk of shame to the cruiser.

A tampon is a weapon -- it can stop sex for days!

6.9 = worst thing ever, sixty-nine interrupted by a period.

You're an idiot.

and you are a hoebag
