Sounded like he was just joking around about it to me, and she took him seriously. I don't know how that would make you "look cool", maybe "trying to be funny"? I dunno, the guy sounds like an idiot, but while comical in theory the reality of her throwing 4 full glass bottles of beer at him is completely out of line. Fuck that bitch, she deserves to be treated that way if that's how she's going to respond. In summary, the guy's an idiot, but the punishment doesn't fit the crime here. You deserve to be mocked and ridiculed for being a tool, nothing more.
I'm pretty sure almost everyone here is going to cheer her on aswell. Way to be a dick.
His point is that there would be some crazy people that would say the guy should get it for her and be a gentleman. Just like there's some crazy people now who chose "I agree, your life sucks." I think most people would agree that if the genders were switched here, and OP was a woman, we'd be calling her a bitch instead of calling OP a dick. I generally make the same point as 65, but I think you're wrong on this one, 65.
Ok Hypothetical FML I yelled at my man for some cash to go shopping in front of my friends. He straight up said no and slapped me down for it. FML I tried to make them roughly equivalent. What do you think the FML responses would be? The vast majority and top rated votes "bitch you got what you deserved. Hope he slaps you one for me" or more "please OP, get out of that abusive relationships!". Do you think there is a sizable difference between the two? I am genuinely curious.
The girlfriend shouldn't have responded with violence, because that is technically abuse. Even if her boyfriend was belittling her and stuff, she could've just put her foot down or walked out. Four beer bottles - empty or not - can do a lot of damage, and it's not behaviour to be encouraged in either gender.
I can see what you're saying about throwing things at friends, but aren't those usually objects that won't hurt too much if they don't catch/dodge? And they usually know it's coming and not at their head? But the FML reads like there was a definite intention to physically hurt the OP for a derogatory comment, which is a certainly a bit extreme, even if it's not classed as abuse. Also, if the situation was reversed I think it would be counted as unacceptable, therefore it's unacceptable here.
#176 Those are not equivalent at all. If it said he threw the money at her, I'd say she deserved it. Also, he specifically said he did it to be cool - showing off by ordering his girlfriend around. The OP readily admitted thinking that makes him cool. Sexism IS by definition not equivalent when you simply reverse the situation. There are no stereotypes that men should wait on women. Men weren't in a position where they were expected to do so for hundreds of years.
211, Are you saying if a guy throws bottles of beer at his girlfriends head it isn't abuse? You don't have any idea what you're talking about do you? 119, The FML community is full of idiots, so I doubt they'd even be able to identify one anyway. Anyone who thinks FML comments aren't generally bullshit is more likely than not a part of the problem...
You're an asshole. Treating your girlfriend like crap does not make you cool.
There's no way you didn't deserve it. *cheers on OP's girlfriend*
Why would that make you seem cool? Oh I forgot, children don't know what they're doing.
What were you expecting, for her to actually bring a beer? Maybe even a sandwich too?
