Today, I was at the mall and someone peeked their head under the door of my dressing room while I was half dressed. Not knowing who it was, I kicked him in the face just out of instinct. Its was a 4 year old kid looking for his mother. FML

i don't understand all the people saying that someone should've been watching the kid. his mother was obviously in the dressing room is she supposed to watch him? take him in there and let him have a messed up childhood? and seriously, have NONE of you ever gotten lost in a big department store or something as a kid?

oh, and #25, child abuse? really? give me a break.

and it doesn't really matter how hard the kick was...nobody wants it in the face.

OP, it's not your fault. but god i'd feel awful after that. i hope you hid from his mother.

I disagree..........OP should call the security instead of kicking someone in his face.
YDI for using your leg instead of your brain to solve problem in your life.

Um.... YES.
There is nothing wrong with a young child seeing a parent change clothes. Americans are just too fucking repressed. "z0mg, a nipple!" It's not like we don't all have them. Who cares?

Anyhow, a four-year-old will likely not even remember such a mundane event as being in the changing room with his mother, let alone be scarred by it.

Far better alternative than the mother letting the kid run around unsupervised where he could get hurt. Or worse.

#102- I see where you're coming from, and no it is not child abuse, but the kid could have knocked first. At 4 years of age, the kid should have known better than peeking under dressing rooms. Seriously *_*

"Americans are just too fucking repressed. "z0mg, a nipple!" It's not like we don't all have them. Who cares?"

... (-.-;) (stereotype? yes.) I've been into dressing rooms so many times, I don't know how many, and ALL the mothers take their small children in with them when they're changing. Don't assume all Americans are prude because of ONE FML STORY.

Couldn't agree more.

I've been living in Europe for the past 3 years and it has made me realize just to what crazy extent Americans and Canadians are repressed. Everything makes you a sexual predator, child molester, or gay.

Here it's not uncommon to see people changing at the beach or an outdoor public pool. Nobody cares!

I love North America, but damn it's got some fucking growing up to do.

"Today, I lost my mommy. I looked underneath a door to see if she was there. The lady saw me and kicked me in the face. It wasn't my mommy. FML"

That's just terrible. FYL, because we all know no one can control instinct. Well, from the comments and the FYL/YDI ratio, I guess about 1/8 of us don't know we can't control instinct.

Me too. XD

The people bitching against the OP just don't realize that the kid was lucky he ended up just getting kicked in the face.
First, he learned a valuable life lessong: Knock and call "Mom?" instead of peeping like a moron.
And secondly, he just got kicked in the face: If he'd been wandering farther in the mall, he could have gotten snatched by a pervert, and then it's a billion times worse than being kicked in the face.

The asshole here is the mom, who left her kid alone and went to try on clothes, when she should have taken him with her.

I agree, I wouldn't like it either if I saw someone peeking, no matter how old he/she is. It wasn't the kids fault either but I can totally understand the situation. It was just bad luck!

instinct is your reaction to things? She didn't react very well because it was actually a little child she kicked under the door and not a peeping tom which is what she thought - so that's a fail. Why would a 4 year old want to see naked women?

touche, from
1. an inborn pattern of activity or tendency to action common to a given biological species.
2. a natural or innate impulse, inclination, or tendency.
3. a natural aptitude or gift: an instinct for making money.
4. natural intuitive power.

Therefore she didn't mean to react like that it was an instinct and with someone looking at you naked its normal to feel threatened, therefore kicking little kids in the face
