Today, I had to work late. I missed the last bus so I called a cab. That was 3 hours ago. I called my dad for a ride. That was 2 hours ago. I guess I'm sleeping under my desk tonight. FML

Just call the cab company and query why the cab never came.


Why??? Hitch-hiking would be a much better idea.

The situation has passed days probably days before this fml was even published. It doesn't seem anyone realizes that, and all the suggestions they're giving out are irrelevant.

49, I highly doubt that anyone genuinely believes that these fml are happening live. The advice is basically a "what you should have done" sort of advice or even helping people who find themself in a similar situation in the future. At least there are some people on the Internet who are still willing to help and give advice instead of just trolling and abusing.

awe, are you that forgettable? either least you have a job!

It's aww damnit. Awe is shocked, amazed, surprised. Sorry, but this has always annoyed me greatly.

That "at least you have a job" thing is getting annoying.

Or, just maybe, they live really far away and they don't want to walk for hours?

I don't think he'd be taking a cab if he worked an hour away, the cab bill would be your daily earnings.

21- she'd* We don't know where she works, it's quite possible she works in a dodgy part of town and to walk home could potentially put her in danger of many horrible things. She's from DC and that's a big city for anyone to be walking a fair distance by themselves at night. Better safe than dead in a ditch or worse... Anyways, hope you've worked things out now OP.

21- There's a huge difference between walking and driving time. She could live 10-15 minutes away by car, which could potentially equal 2-3 hours of walking, or more. Obviously in that case you'd rather pay for a ten minute cab ride than walk for two hours in the middle of the night.

last bus might cost $10 and if forced a taxi $60, a taxi might cost half your earnings but at least you get home. The company might also subsidies taxis in that situation

The only reason she's taking a cab in the first place is because she missed the last bus and her father forgot to pick her up. So it would make sense to ride in a cab even if it is expensive.

I work an hour away from where I live...when I take the bus, if I missed it I would have to take a cab. Yes, it would be expensive, but what other choice do I have? I'm certainly not going to walk 50+ miles on the highway carrying all my things.

If I could do it in 3 or less hours I'd walk home. I'd be calling friends, loved ones and cab companies the whole time, but I'd do anything to get away from work.

Good news is that you are already dressed and present for work tomorrow.

Office camping trips are awesome! Use a desk lamp and make some smores.

Cook the bumble bees from the window sills for a nourishing meal (10 points for anyone who gets the reference)

Dang that sucks. I hope you work at a hotel or a resort.
