Today, I successfully stopped my hair straightener from falling into a bathtub full of water by grabbing hold of the burning hot plates. FML

At least you didn't have to spend any money on a new one. It would've sucked if you drowned an expensive flat iron. Plus, Burns are only temporary :)

At least you saved your life! What the hell were you thinking? If dropped in a tub full of water you would have had the biggest electric shock! Live and learn and be grateful you only burnt your hand.

More like she saved herself from electric shock. But the saved flat iron is a bonus.

Don't electronics usually come with an electric switch? So if they contact water they'll turn off automatically? At least my blow dryer does.

she would not have been shocked if you dropped it in the bath unless she was in the Bath. One does not straighten their hair while in the bath tub. logically thinking op would have been beside the bath, I.e not life threatening.

Why the **** was the flat iron so close to a tub filled of water?

And how would you know if someone thumbed up their own comment? It's not like there is a list of who thumbed what.

45, even if a straightener falls in, 1, it'll be hot and 2 it's not really supposed to get wet.

Why was she straightening her hair before she got in the bath?

TOO BAD! I got to get people to like my comment somehow Lol

What the hell are you talking about Stan?

Stan, Stan, Stan...Not THOSE kind of hot plates! The hot plates of the straightening iron.

Stan suffered a concussion, due to trying to vault a mail box while drunk.

Ur a dumbass and op is a dumb ass haha jk

Obviously he was making a sexist joke. I can't believe I'm even pointing this out. Shall I spell it out further?

Thank you, 54. The amount of people that missed it made me doubt myself for a moment.

Anyone who read that in Stan's voice who have picked up on the joke... Joke, wtf is one of those?!?!

Stan, why are you so mad? Try to understand that I do want you as a fan

Shouldn't you be off pelting rocks at Haley?

#54- Maybe the fact that no one got it means that FML commenters have finally moved past sexism. :) Or it was a bad joke. Either or.

Could have been worse... Could have grabbed the hot plates and dipped your hand in the toilet.

I know someone who did that and got huge blisters that covered 3 fingers.. It is so painful :/

*sassy ghetto voice* "You rude as ****!" ^

25- You're only 14, what are you doing talking like that? I don't even see why you commented just to say you don't give a ****. Personally, I don't give a **** if you give a **** or not.

Girl, hold my ponytail--this bitch did not just say she don't give a ****!

Burns hurt so bad, once I fell on a ire and landed on my hand with a 3 degree burn, worst pain ever...

Why were you using that in the bathtub!? @_@

I don't think she's THAT dumb.

She wasn't using them whilst in the bath! Although, I will admit it's pretty silly of them to have electrical appliances in the bathroom and if it's necessary because there's nowhere else to go you'd think she'd not be silly enough to use them with a bath full of water! :/

I agree! I don't think she was using it while she was in the bathtub but it's common sense that you shouldn't use anything that requires electricity near water

Are you dumb!?!?!? She was not using it in the tub maybe you should read it abit more carefully before opening your big fat trap! UGH stupid people -_-

Aw op! At least the straightener's safe...

Now that's not true freind, I once had a freind back in Nam. He was a straightener. We was fighting them congs up in a village when a mine blew off my toe nail. I screamed for help but my "freind" just laughed at me and shot me in the face ten times. It wasn't fun. Don't trust a straightener.

And it's I before E except after C. Friend>Freind.

Your attempt at humor has failed, you do nit amuse me -hits button for trap door- .

#92-- What about "weird", "protein", "either", and "efficient"? English spelling sucks.

I love you all so much. Don't hate me cause hate caused the holocaust.

52- I am not amused. Guess who's house I'm going to tonight.

129 I didn't see you here tonight. I guess I'm just coming over to yours. My profile pic's a selfie. Have fun remembering that at night.

Ouch! Hope you're okay OP! :o

Better be one expensive hair straightener

You would hope so. I don't know it scalding burns on the hands are worth saving something that is generally fairly cheap. Hands are pretty important and burns, well, they just suck.

I think the point was she saved herself, not the straightener.

well atleast the hair straigthner is ok !

why does everyone keep repeating that? read the comments above to prevent an overload of the same (useless) comment!

To add onto that, if you see something you were going to say, just thumb it up instead of posting it again.

I love watching all the comments posted by dumb teenage girls rolling in that go along the lines of this one (Omg lol well like a least the hairdryer is safe lololol !), instead of addressing the real matter: OP could've had the biggest electrical shock of her life.

Also, I may have you know that unless you're an idiot, don't put a space before an exclamation point.

I don't think she was actually in the bathtub though.

Better burned than electrocuted in a bath! Haven't you ever seen What Women Want?

I don't think she was actually in the bath, but then again that's my interpretation! I guess we'll have to wait for op to comment to know for sure!

58, it's awesome how you just got on someone for repeating a comment and then you came here just to repeat your own comment.
