Today, I met one of my favorite web-comic artists. As I purchased a shirt from their booth he asked, "What size?" I stupidly asked "How big is a small?" He chuckled, "It's small" and chuckled some more. So much for keeping it cool. FML

That's not even a stupid question - you clearly meant it as in measurements. At least I hope that's what you meant.

To be fair, clothes range from different sizes no matter what their tag says. I picked up two sweaters the other day, a size 6 and a size 10, and they were both the same size. It's confusing haha.

I'm hoping you're referring to QC's Jeph.

I hope it was Jeph

So you pulled a Marigold?

As long as David Brevik was there, was there...who cares lol???

Perfectly sensible question. This guy was just being a bit of a jerk. The man laughs at his own jokes, tells you all you need to know really.

Yeah, sizes are different everywhere. I have 2 t shirts that I got at concerts for my favorite band- one's a medium, one's a small, and the small is bigger than the medium. So you have to ask.

Hey, It's just like Fml. Somebody says of does something stupid and we comment on how stupid they were.

I agree, not all clothing run the same size. Ex: I've purchased clothing from Victoria's Secret's catalogs and they usually run bigger than many other companies. Not their bras (those are usually dead on) but their undies, swimsuit bottoms and even some of their T-shirts do. Returns are such a hassle! :P

What is a cat doing inside of Victoria's Secret? :o

Enslaved, I think they do it purposely to make women feel better about themselves. I ordered from their catalog as well and the panties were way to big!

So I'm not the only one. (: I knew my big ass wasn't an extra small!

Asking how big a small is is a reasonable question. Smalls and mediums are never the size I think they are.

Or it could be an Fml comic... That would be fmlinception.

That's not nearly as bad as the person who asked me how big a six-inch hoagie was when I worked at that deli.

'Six-inch hoagie' sounds like a porn actors name.. Only because i have No idea what it is. Lol

A hoagie is a sub sandwich. That's what it's called in New Jersey.

Yes, and also other states as well.

Must have been a metric system user.

47, Yes, but I was in New Jersey at the time so that's what I said.

50, I hadn't thought of that, but that would explain it. I just showed them the roll, though, so that clarified things for them pretty quickly.

So the small is pretty small... Not big lol..

small enough.

On the bright side, you made him laugh. Don't worry. I met Paul Hogan once and the first thing I said to him was "Shit! I don't have a pen" He laughed though, so it made me feel a bit better about swearing in front of a celebrity. lol

because celebrities don't swear

Many celebrities must swear to be effective at their job..

Well, yeah, but it's not really the impression 16-year-old me wanted to leave for one of my favorite actors. I...didn't realize that would be such a disagree-worthy comment. o.O
