Today, I was calling my husband while driving. While the phone rang, I farted. As soon as the horrid smell hit my nose, my husband answered. I panicked and hung up quickly, thinking to myself how embarrassed I was because he could smell it. I'm an idiot. FML

"hello?" "awh what's that smell?!?!?" click.


^Exactly. Probably should've worded it better.

Nah, I got it right off the bat.

You can look up on NYTimes - U.S. Withheld data on risks of distracted driving and also look up Strayer's and Johnston's (2001) Lab Experiment about stimulated driving task.

You probably should be talking on the phone while driving anyway

Why? Do you look at the road with your mouth? 'Cus I sure don't.

Because a lot of traffic accidents are the direct result of cell phones. Most are probably from texting but people get to driving really stupid when they're on the phone. I have almost been hit and almost hit plenty of people because they were on the phone (and because I wanted to make an example of them).

Right… because almost hitting people who are on their phones is way better than talking with a hands free device while driving…

In some places in Canada your not aloud to talk on your phone while driving... You get a 160$ ticket if they catch you.

In my country, you aren't ALOUD to do that, too. We must talk quietly... :D

Why? You can now make phone calls in your car without even touching the phone or looking away from the road.

I agree. Calling or texting someone is really dangerous, even if you don't have to touch anything! You could still be distracted.

True, but studies have shown that even with this new technology, people still get distracted because their main focus is the call, not the road. If one of your senses are distracted/compromised, it throws all of the other ones out if whack. Have you ever heard of the eating an onion blindfolded while smelling an apple experiment? If so, this is a little similar to that.

So, by your reasoning, drivers shouldn't talk to passengers in their car. What's the difference between being on the phone while driving, and speaking to a passenger in the car, provided you have hands free or Bluetooth?

Soooo, when someone is in your car you sit in complete silence? Because IF she didn't need to touch anything to make the call, it seems like pretty much the same thing to me

^ In terms of hands free and Bluetooth, there is no difference, you're right. But the fact is, many people don't have/use those things, more often than not it's their phone...hands-on.

45- I agree. But since your previous comment started with "even with new technology" you weren't talking about people with "hands on" phones right? Just sayin.

Unless you have Siri or some other voice recognition system you can't make a phone call without playing with the phone. That's pretty distracting even if the conversation itself isn't.

41 - It depends on the nature of the conversation. It's a bad idea to drive while arguing/crying/receiving bad news. Or even really good news. Conversation can be distracting either way, whether it's in person or not.

I did too. Not because she was talking and driving, but because she's a woman. She deserves it.

I was merely suggesting what 41 was saying. Mir :( Hands free is really no different than in car conversations. And a lot of people DO have this.

41, there is a difference though. The people that are with you in the car are aware of the situationes you're in, they notice when to be quiet or when the driver has time to talk.

You're lucky he did'nt smell your stupidness..

I didn't know stupid gave off a scent... Pray tell, what does it smell like?

KiddNYC1O 20

I'm disappointed, GowChick...

Lol 7, I thought that was really witty, these other people have no sense of humor

66- I'm disappointed with it to. :'( my comment skills are lacking, this is what I get for taking a break from the FML game. *goes to corner and curls into ball*

You OP are indeed an idiot. I think this comment deserves more thumbs up, because when someone does something this moronic all you can do is agree with their observation of their own stupidity.

What phone do you have, because I want it. Video calling can only get better with the sense of smell.

YDI for using the phone while driving.

Ever heard of... Hands free? Blue tooth? Speakerphone?

Ever heard of Car accidents, Vehicular manslaughter ?

Lol if my hubby smelled my fart, we'd both laugh and make a competition out of it. :D

WhoaItsKiernan 4

You're hubby? You sound like you're five.

Wasn't that an FML on here, a violent farting competition?

OHai15 12

I am out of witty comebacks, let me just insult your grammar....
