Today, I got together with a small gathering of friends in a bar. I go up to the bar to order something, but with all the music and noise, the barman can't hear what I'm trying to say, so he leans forward, cocking his ear towards me. For some reason, I thought he was being friendly so I kissed him as if we were saying hello to each other. FML

im American and i realize this person is probably foreign or comes from a foreign family where this is a normal greeting.. it's not that bizzare to get the concept or need a translation... That's embarassing though for the person haha

#19 You called him/her an ignorant American? I checked your profile. I see that you are from Honolulu, which I believe is part of the United States, thus insulting your own nationality. By this I mean that you are stereotyping Americans, including yourself. All the person did was make an innocent mistake. leave him alone. I, too, am American and proud of my country. I don't take it too kindly when someone insults my home. I will admit the United States has made mistakes but that doesn't not affect my love for it. Thank you and have a good day.

viedemerde.fr is the best! I'd laughed at this story on the French site a while back. Good going for doing it in English!

Why did someone bother translating this? Kissing isn't culturally accepted as a greeting in the US or, as far as I know, the UK.

Say what? Ontopic- This isn't really an FML. unless there's like the consequences, sort of like. I kissed bartender, la la la, Now everyone at the bar gives me funny looks and won't talk to me. FML.

20- he was calling 2 an ignorant American, not all Americans ignorant. And that was a pretty ignorant statement being that im from NY and we all kiss eachother hello so to say its not culturally accepted in America is bullshit, maybe its not culturally accepted in your ignorant little town. Ya ****** idiots.

I realize that, but it's not at all funny when you have to explain the joke. Leave it French...

It doesn't need an explanation, I can't think of anyone who doesn't know this. Also I'm American and I was at a Bar and the Bartender really actually did do greetings like this.
