Today, I was at the local grocery store. I've had really bad gas lately, and I accidentally let one go while standing in line. The woman behind me thought it was her kid, and smacked him for farting in public. FML

What a stinky situation, that poor kid


At the same time, holding in gas is literally unhealthy. So it may be "etiquette", but you can't hold it in forever. Yes you can do it away from people, sure, but that opportunity isn't always available.

My statement was still perfectly distinguishable. This isn't the oxford dictionary. There's no point in posting, without adding to the fml, about a spelling error other than trying to boost your own self esteem by belittling others...

Scratching and masturbating are things you should not really do in public. But little things like burping or farting are hard to stop sometimes. And who cares? It's just a little smell. What's next for you? Policing the hiccups?

The difference between farting/burping and scratching/masturbating #36 is that air naturally comes out of your body. It's your choice to scratch or jerk off, it doesn't happen naturally like the others do.

111 - just because it naturally comes from your body doesnt mean you should do it in the middle of a crowded area. This is where the etiquette and manners portion of my fml became relevant.

I wonder if OP at least went to defend the kid. Otherwise we might soon be reading some kids FML.

Mother of the year award goes to... I can understand telling the kid not to be rude but slapping him? I hope you turned around and gave them a disgusted look though, lol

it said smacked not slapped so it probably wasn't hard just a little hit but people have to take as far as calling that abuse which is not
