Today, I had to help my little sister do a first-grade project for school. For one part, they have to draw a picture of their role model. She drew a whale, and I asked, "A whale is your role model?" She laughed and said, "No! It's you!" FML

Think of the bright side! You're her role model and you inspire her! Even if you might look like a whale!

Whale, whale, whale, looks like it's time to teach the little spout some manners, you can't wait until it all blows over.

I'd say depends on her age...

I used to draw heads with arms and legs coming out from them, so I can understand the possible misinterpretation.

"first-grade project for school".

Hey, I drew like that too.

Someone needs to teach her some manners.

First grade is like 5-6 years old. It's understandable.

yes, as 18 said she wasn't being mean. the subject of focus was "role model" after all. backhanded compliment at worst.

She's in first grade... She wasn't calling OP a whale or insinuating she was one, it was an attempt to draw a person.. And for first grade, that's pretty darn cute

Umm, last time I checked first graders weren't idiots. They know the difference between a whale and a person. They also know how to draw stick people, unless over the years people have lost that 'skill'. It's not really cute, how would you like it if a first grader drew a picture of 'you' and it looked like a whale? You'd probably react the same way.

62, there is no way a stick figure can look fat. So she did not drew a stick figure. I for one never have. People aren't sticks, unless extreme anorexia is combined with the absence of bones. Nobody taught me that people are sticks, so I always made circles (body looks like 0). And so did that little girl. Circles as bodies can look "fat". Thus with malformed ones, one could think of whales. As mentioned, the kid probably didn't mean to offend either.

Exactly. Teach her how to kill harp seals by attacking from below.

And penguins!! >:D

Just no. Everybody loves penguins.

Don't take it personally op! She's just a little kid, they do that a lot

That sucks!

Not quite in the #1 spot. Feel free to not try again next time.

Swing and a miss.

Isn't this what the whole site is supposed to mean anyways #5?

You krilled it.

You are all so shellfish

45- just back away slowly..... They won't rip you apart if you back away slowly....

Big hearted?

"I eat pieces of krill like you for breakfast!"

Pleonasm i swear you comment on every fml post there is, but your comments and puns always amaze and entertain me lol

It must be your mustach that allows you to come up with great puns all the time lol

You eat pieces of krill for breakfast?!? (Happy Gilmore plagiarism)

33 wants your D, Pleo....

She's a little kid OP, she doesn't know any better. Don't take it to hard. :)

Don't take it up the butt. Little sisters sometimes tend to do things that may annoy you.

Like call you their role model? I'd be far too beside myself over that to mind the whale thing too much...I mean, a little punch to the self esteem but there was no ill intent. Not what I'd consider one of those annoying little sibling traits.

#30 I was referring to the fact that the younger sister may have drawn the OP a certain way on purpose . I wasn't referring to the fact that the little one called her a role model. Duh. My younger munchkin drew me as a eggplant once on purpose but as a headline wrote "My Role Model" .

Well I understand that, obviously, but I wouldn't have taken that as the little sister drawing a whale on purpose at all. Didn't even think of that. I think there may be some over-interpreting of a six year old's blob drawing here...
