Today, I used my phone to take pictures of my hemorrhoids to show my doctor, forgetting I'd set my phone to upload all photos to a shared Dropbox account. My mother-in-law called. FML

NewMom1115 tells us more.

OP here - wow, it's weird and awesome this made it on the site! Here is some follow-up info: my doctor suggested I take the pics to see if the hemorrhoids were getting worse. I'm a new mom, so I guess sleep deprivation explains why I forgot about the Dropbox account. :)

Why would you want your mother-in-law to see *all* the photos you take with your phone?

Don't answer the phone, throw it in a river. Sell all your assets and move to a small hut without power in the alps. That should keep you off the grid and make it rather hard for her to ask you why there are photos of your haemorrhoids on her freakin phone.

Why is this thumbed down so much, nobody ever mentions the meaning of op so how are new people supposed to know what it means

30 - because it is the first post, so it looks like 1 is trolling. They got their answer, though - Original Poster. Maybe there should be a FAQ for those new to FML lol. They could make it a funny blog like they did to explain the badges.

And OP is something that's simple enough to look up if you don't know, there's really no need to comment to ask.

Hope that doesn't make things to awkward with family OP

This situation spelt disaster from the beginning.

thats what i was wondering to

The OP responded and said she's a new mom. So maybe it was meant as an easy way to share baby pictures.

Sounds like a reasonable plan considering the circumstances.

Taking pictures to show your doctor seems a bit odd, these people are trained to examine you, there's no need to be embarrassed

Some doctors allow you to send pictures of certain, easily diagnosed and treated conditions, like hemorrhoids or poison ivy, to a work related email so that you can avoid a doctor's appointment. They diagnose and prescribe the treatment right over the phone. It's really handy for some and saves resources. Some insurance companies have a dedicated team and that's all they do.

Tell her it's pictures from Hubble Space Telescope showing new Moons around Uranus.

Ahahahahaha! Best response ever!

Well... That's embarrassing.

How do you forget this stuff? If I did that, I would be triple checking everything so this doesn't happen.
