Today, I was at the theatre with my 4-year-old son who was situated on my lap. Halfway through the movie, he turns to face me and states loudly, "Mommy, your legs are so furry!". Everyone watching the show turned and stared at us. FML

Tell your kid to shut up. The rest of us paid over $10 a ticket and are trying to watch the movie! I hate people who bring their damn kids to a movie and they just won't shut up! Rent the DVD and watch it at home, then your kid can cry, talk, and ask all the stupid questions it wants...and leave the rest of us in peace!

THANK you! Most of the people who turned around and stared were probably doing it because they were ANNOYED, not because they give a shit about your hairy legs.

HAHA XD - I guess you need too shave/buy some wax/visit your beautician?

I agree wholeheartedly. If your kid doesn't have the maturity to be quiet during a movie, you should be willing to personally compensate every moviegoer whose movie you ruined.

Fuckin a! I give you a round of applause my good sir. P.S. YDI for not shaving, Wookie.

@ 3: You are absolutely right! I've gotten so sick of people ruining movies and plays for me just because they thought their "little angel should come along". Just a couple of weeks ago, instead of enjoying a great ballet performance, everyone had to watch the performance while listening to a toddler throwing tantrums for an entire hour while the parents just sit there doing nothing.

hell fucking yeah. i know i'd be one of those people turning and glaring at the noisy kid, not the mom's hairy legs (hell, it's winter, i know i don't bother to shave as often when i'm going to be wearing pants all the time anyway).

Wow, some people are so rude when it comes to other people's kids. This kind of crap really annoys me when people are so against having people bring their kids to the movies yet most teenagers and adults aren't even able to sit through a show without talking too. You must have had a really depressing childhood if all you were taught is that kids should be seen and not heard. My two year old probably has better things to say than most of you on here.

I doubt that.

#29 has a point. If you can't control your child in a public place, it's best to leave the child at home. I go to the theater to watch a movie, not to hear some brat screaming for two hours straight. If you know your child is cranky and won't be able to sit quietly through the event, you should either stay home yourself or find a babysitter. If your child is normally well-behaved but throws a fit in the middle of the show, excuse yourself and take the kid somewhere outside to calm down. DO NOT just sit there and pretend nothing is happening. I HATE it when parents do that. It's even a huge problem in my church. Babies and young children start wailing and screaming, and Mom and Dad just sit there and smile instead of taking the problem out into the common area (and it's not like they couldn't hear the services out there, my church has a speaker system). But then, that goes for anyone of any age. If you can't keep your mouth shut when others around you are trying to listen to something, you need to get up and leave. I'm all for allowing WELL-BEHAVED children into events with their parents. If they're polite and quiet, I have no problem. It's the noisy ones I can't stand.

@dwardo: You decided to have a child and you enjoy being a parent. You love your kid so much that it doesn't bother you when he/she talks loudly, cries, screams and whatever else kids that age do. The rest of us: we decided not have kids, so we would very much like if parents like you gave us a chance to enjoy our lives without having to deal with undisciplined children. If your kid starts laughing loudly in the movie theater, for you it's adorable, for the rest of us it's just annoying. I had the happiest childhood and was in no way "traumatised" by the fact that, ever since I was about 3 or 4 my mom established the rule that, whenever we went out, if I missbehaved, we would return home right away and I was grounded for at least a couple of weeks. So she basically gave me a choice: I was either well-behaved (which ment no screaming, keeping quiet when I was asked to, being polite) or we wouldn't go out. Guess what? I decided to pick option number 1. So I got to go to a million different places, from movies, to concerts, to social events WITHOUT annoying the s*** out of the adults around me.

Huh, that's the same thing my parents did with me. If my brother or I misbehaved, we'd be taken home and punished. They took the old threat of "don't make me turn this car around" very seriously. My brother threw a shit-fit when we were at my grandmother's house. We ended up driving the three hours home because of him. Dad scolded him the entire way home. And my brother never threw a tantrum again after that night.

Agree. That goes for restaurants as well. We don't pay to sit down to a meal to listen to kids scream or holler.

#17 - She has a four-year-old kid, do you honestly think she has time to shave her legs on a daily basis? Grow the hell up.

I agree- I even have 2 kids myself, and we didn't go to the movies until Iwas sure they would sit still and watch.. I think my daughter was about 5 and my son 7 before I took them. and just because she has a 4 yr old doesn't mean she's too busy to shave her legs. I had a 2 yr old and a newborn, and I still managed to keep up with my personal issues. You have to do that shit when they are sleeping. not hard.

AMEN!!! there are certain activities for kids, and then there are activities for everyone else... RENT the movie, kids shouldn't be in a theatre until at LEAST 5 or 6, and then only if they don't have any hyperactivity issues, etc, and can MIND... no one cares about your hairy legs, they care that your brat was yelling. And, I'm going to get all crazy here and take a guess, prob not for the first time in the movie.. *rolls eyes*... and seriously??? why would ANYONE agree this is an FML??? if the hairy legs bother you SHAVE THEM!!!!! And I'm so sick of ppl playing the mommy excuse... I have plenty of "mommy" friends, and they are still HOT women, and also great moms. They still shave, exercise, dress cute, wear makeup, etc. And non of them are SAHM, in fact a couple are working AND working on advanced degrees while being mommies.. it just takes a little EFFORT... I can only assume (hopefully!) you still find time to shower and brush your teeth, you couldn't take an extra 2 min and shave???

I would have shoved the little bitch into my lap. The hair on my legs woulda muffled him :P

Because maybe she should be free to go out and not be bothered by OTHER assholes who are concerned with what's on HER body. Also this probably isn't the first time her kid has said something like that. Soon as he said "Mommy your le--" OP you should have covered his mouth and told him to keep quiet in the movie. Lol

Anddd this is why the "outside world" think we Oregonians are hippies. Sh#t.

ewww wax em!! its beyond me why you would go out in a skirt or shorts with captain caveman legs anyway...

How many FMLs can we have about "my kid is young and said something kind of embarassing in PUBLIC!" It happens all the time, you should really just expect it with small children. Get over it already. And yes, if your child is too young to understand that appropriate behavior in the movie theater is being quiet, then he is too young to be attending movies at the theater unless it is something specifically aimed at his age group and the other people there will also have small children.

every FML involving kids is an automatic "YDI for having kids."

Maybe OP was wearing a velvet skirt. Leg hair isn't the only way to by "furry."

I think they stopped making velvet skirts in 1784.

You should have said, "You think my legs are furry, wait 'til you see my bush!" That would shut the little bastard up -- and made the rest of the gawkers look away real fast!

^Love it!

omg im in tears loling at that!

Do I need to bust out the Husqvarna?

He wouldn't even understand what "bush" means.
