Today, I threw an eraser at my brother to get his attention because he couldn't hear me over his music. Being in a bad mood, he thought I was trying to aggravate his bad mood and responded by throwing a small desk cactus back. FML

PattonGilette2 tells us more.

Yeah, I was pretty surprised that with all the things on his desk, he saw the cactus as a way to put me in my place haha.

Wasn't OP really trying to annoy him, though? Could've walked over and tapped him on the shoulder, for instance...

Someone is on their time of the month >.>

I understand how OP's brother could think he was just trying to be irritating by throwing the eraser, however, it is NOT alright (under ANY circumstances) to throw a cactus at someone. I mean, a cactus? REALLY? That must've hurt. Sorry, OP.

You could seriously injure someone depending on how long the pricks are. If someone blocks with their hands you can hit their wrist and all important blood carrying tubes

#50 What if somebody is trying to get into my use and a cactus is the only weapon I have. I only ask because I have two I could use as swords because they are so tall

#56, I think the word you are searching for is veins.

Plot twist, he wanted her attention

I like tubes better

Someones a bit prickly today.

He's a prick

So, that means you throw back a knife!

And at that rate of escalation, he may return fire with a running chainsaw. Is this truly a wise course of action? :)

Haha one of these brothers are gonna die tonight..

Then you return fire with a nail bomb

I think 58 used to be a member of the IRA

#16 pretty sure a female posted this

Nope, it was the IRS. Remember to pay your taxes.

Your brothers a prick!

If somebody threw something at me i would throw something back

Don't bring an eraser to a cactus fight.

Or a cactus to an eraser fight...

Haha! This made me laugh!

Ha! This comment has no purpose!

Ha!!! Neither does pointing it out!

The purpose is to point out the worthlessness of the previous comment, allowing them to improve!

I do realize there was no purpose to the comment but is there ever really a purpose? Just so people can type something out to a bunch of strangers to get their approval? I was mainly pointing out I had a good laugh at it and I hope the OP made it out safely. And also to let him/her know it was a good FML :)

Because taps on the shoulder are overrated.

but that requires getting up and waking to him.... too much work.

What I want to know is what was pressing enough to throw something at his brother, but not important enough to get up and do so.

pass me that thing near you please....

I'd be pretty aggravated, myself. You could've avoided the prickly plant missile if you'd just tapped him on the shoulder. Edit: #6 beat me to it.

Yea, #6 did beat you to it. BUT, he/she didn't manage to use "prickly plant missile" in his/her comment.

That I didn't, 49. I'll have to remember to put that in next time there's an FML about a cactus being thrown x3

throwing something at anyone isn't exactly the nicest way to get their attention

That's a shaggy situation. Ha!

Nothing about this made sense. Unless I missed some sub context

What the actual fuck, why would anyone throw a cactus at another family member? He should grow a spine and actually be willing to talk it out!

Do you not have siblings? If one cactus is all he ever has to dodge he should consider himself lucky. Around my house growing up, you never knew what was going to be thrown or what you would be hit with. That's why I always avoided fights in the kitchen. Too many sharp objects.

#25. agreed, I have a sister I'm close in age to and she hit me with a putter! got my revenge two days later by taking the phone book across her head.

Intended pun was with spine but I failed miserably. :( I'll go crawl back into my hole now..
