Today, I was at a Starbucks drive-thru and was grabbing a hot coffee when I got rear ended and my car hit the vehicle in front of me which deployed my airbag. Hot coffee can really burn when it hits your face at a high rate of speed. FML

Ouch that really sucks. Make the driver pay for hospital fees.

Hot coffee burns regardless of its velocity.

WTF?! You need airbags in cars to safe lives, you dummy. I definitely know you're one of those individuals that will die in the future in a car accident if you aren't careful.

yeah because before they had airbags, every single person who got in a car died.. good one

Airbags were initially invented because so many people refused to use seat belts.

if you are under 5'6 you are more endanger from serious injury dying due to airbag deployment than you are from dying to a car crash. Thats why cars manufactured today either have to have a lock to turn the airbag off, or have a computerized feature that won't deploy the airbag when your seat is within so many inches of the steering wheel Many people have died because airbags deployed in minor accidents

Obvious troll is obvious. All of iBimmer's posts are like this.

Ignore ibimmer, he posts every fml with some stupid reason to deserve it, like "YDI cuz u hav a car"

ha ha i totally agree #82!! i was like, wtf?? I know Dunkin Donuts does, but Starbucks? dude!! maybe only in certain parts of the country?

i was thinking the exact same thing!!! i was like omg!!! starbucks has a drive-thruu!!!

iBimmer should be banned... This is not the first time I see him and he generally puts some stupid reason for clicking YDI.

i think the OP was being sarcastic

You guys take all the FML's pretty seriously, most of them are fake, including this one. Airbags don't open that easily. You were in a drive-thru damn it, the "rate of speed" of the 'imaginary' car behind the OP's wouldn't have exceeded 5mph. This one SCREAMS FAKE. Off to another FML, a real one. PS. who said I click YDI? It's possible to comment without voting you know. Magic eh?

I tend to agree; this one is either fake, or the OP is an idiot. Argument for it being fake: an airbag won't go off for a minor fender bump, which is all that should have occurred if the OP had their handbrake on like they should have. Argument for the OP being an idiot: perhaps he didn't have his handbrake on after all.

hahahaha i was thinking the exact same thing...i dont think the speed of the coffee matters all that much...

i dont get y someone would put u deserved it wasnt his fault at all

umm now way dumbass over 89% of Chinese cars don't contain air bags and that's over 45% of all cars in china alone so go ******* die in a hole!

I think that was Einstein's second theorem: "Coffee, at a high rate of speed..."

Why would you put your emergency brake on in a drive thru...? Just put it in park. That's like saying you should use it at a stoplight.

Exactly what I was thinking.

your fault - Dunkin' Donuts all the way

Well, some people like Dunkin' Donuts...and OP went to Starbucks.

A part of me wants to say, YDI for drinking Starbucks (especially when they overroast the beans in their coffee). You should know by now the sort of jerks who'd be in your line. But then again, no matter the brand, hot coffee all burns. Sorry, man.
