Today, I had a job interview. Everything was going well until I noticed a picture of a dog hanging on the wall, which reminded me of the ending of Marley and Me. I started crying and had to be escorted out. FML

I disagree, perhaps this reaction was a bit too much, but I wouldn't mind dating a guy who isn't afraid to show his emotions! Rather that than someone who doesn't find the ending of "Marley and Me" sad.

You never know, there might be more to this FML than just a man crying because he remembered the ending to a movie. He might have been under stress, something traumatic might have happened in his life, and remembering the ending to Marley and Me could have acted as a trigger and let out everything he was feeling, which might be totally unrelated, at once. You feel like you've lost control over yourself. It's happened to me before = I don't think we need to be a dick to someone just because he cried in a strange place; we don't really know the full story

I agree. He sounds like he has a ton of pent up sadness that was just waiting for the release trigger so he could have this melt down.
I hope you got it all out if your system OP.
Hope you've learnt not to repress your emotions from all this. Let that shit out!!

35- Having dated a "sensitive" guy for several years in the past, I can tell you that frequent and excessive outpourings of unbridled emotion are ridiculously annoying to deal with.
It's nice when emotionally well-rounded people are open about their feelings, sure. Whole different ball game when it comes to the type to cry uncontrolably at pictures of dogs.

Well #2, I cried for hours after seeing Marley and Me because one of my dogs passed away the same as in the movie. A picture can trigger memories and feelings that sometimes it's hard to contain. Even though OP had a slight meltdown at the wrong time, I can understand how it can happen; the point of the movie was to show how much the family loved their pet and it was to convey emotion.
Losing a pet is never easy and even after many years it still hurts...


104- some people still may not have seen it. A few years ago i was at school reading a Harry Potter book (the half blood prince) and I girl came up to me assuming I'd already read it once before. She told me that a character dies, and which one, completely ruining the book for me. You shouldn't just assume everyone who wants to see it has seen it.

111 - Thats completely different; if you're in the middle of watching Marley and Me you probably don't want people telling you the plot, if you don't care enough to watch it, you shouldn't care about the plot.


122- yeah I know it's not quite the same. I was just trying to say that some people might not have had the chance to see it. The girl that wrecked the book for me did so by accident because she thought I'd read it before, as she said "everyone's read it". But that wasn't true. I hadn't had a chance to read it before. I was just trying to use it as an example to say that you shouldn't assume that everyone who wants to see it has. I guess I wasn't getting my point across properly. Sorry about that :)

#11, me, neither. I expected to, but that dog was such a bastard, I was glad to see it go.

And I wept bitterly when my Panthers got crushed in hockey last night.
