Today, I was at work, reading some funny stories on my phone. Just as one of my co-workers decided to share that his father had passed away recently, I burst into uncontrollable, teary-eyed laughter at a story. They don't believe my explanation, and have branded me the office asshole. FML

If that's the case then I bet you believe personal issues should be left at the door, and telling another co worker that your dad just past, while at work wasn't the place for that either.

36 - because it says at work and not at work on break maybe?

46 - two wrongs don't make a right.. The OP is posting the FML so in turn my post is directed to them not any other parties.

You ever think that maybe OP just forgot to write "on break" or didn't think it would matter?

And FYI the majority of people that have an office job spend at least some time doing other things besides strictly work. It's not that uncommon. Nor is it that uncommon to have an office job where there is a slow point of the day.

Quit being such a jackass, Mkay?

#48, so what you're saying is that because "most" of the people who have office jobs do other things at work then it is ok for op? so its like saying that, if I was a guard at a prison and "most" of my co-workers are mistreating inmates then its ok for mentor mistreat th as well?

48 - and most women have been sexually abused at some point in their life whether it be sexual harassment or more... So I guess that makes it okay?

Yeah didn't think the "because it happens all the time" excuse was that valid. ;-)



You're a fucking idiot. Nobody said that slacking off was okay, and just because the FML didn't say in big bold letters 'ON MY BREAK' doesn't mean it didn't happen.

FMLs are limited to 300 characters. What does this mean? Well, it means that sometimes info must be sacrificed in order to successfully submit an FML.

So, it's entirely probable that OP was on their lunch break. After all, the co-workers were also talking.

Try not to be an ignorant asswipe next time.

Either share the story which caused the laughter fit or accept their scorn. If the story is really that funny then your explanation becomes plausible. If it isn't believably hilarious enough to warrant such a burst of joviality then you're basically screwed.

I suppose this could be compared to many FMLs with horrible responses. Like the one where OP accidentally texted "ahahahaha" in response to the friend's deceased relative.


79- Who? Me? I've got the app on my iPhone, and go on when I'm bored. I have a life, I just like my virtual one better. :P

And if your comment wasn't directed to me, sorry but I felt compelled to respond :)
