Today, I was chatting to my brother on Skype. Out of the blue, and just as I read the punchline to a hilarious joke, he said his girlfriend had been cheating on him. I couldn't stifle my side-splitting laughter, and he's been ignoring my calls since. FML

Yeah, I agree that OP should have taken the time to have a conversation with his/her brother but OP did say that he said it out of the blue. Wrong timing on reading jokes I suppose.

#35 You say you hate grammar nazis but you figuratively put a bulls-eye on your back. I'm not trying to start shit but a little education goes a long way in keeping people off your back.

70- You read it again. It says that they were telling jokes and talking, or what not, and as she was about to tell the punchline of a funny joke, he told her about his cheating girlfriend, out of the blue. Which means that he brought up that conversation while they were talking about something else and joking around.

So, no.. You're wrong. You need to read it again. OP did no wrong. She was still laughing from the jokes when he outed his news about his girlfriend.


No, you're wrong. She said she was chatting with him. That doesn't mean they were actually talking at the moment. And she read the punch line not said the punch line. Key words.

83- Normally, when you're 'chatting', you're talking to the person you're 'chatting' with.
And since you're wanting to get severely technical about it, never once did I say she 'said' the punchline! I said '...and as she was about to TELL the punchline...'
And the word 'tell' could be either saying it or reading it or reciting it. Whichever you choose.
So, no.. I'm not wrong. I gave a break-down summary of the FML to someone and you went anal and tried to be Miss Technical.
I don't need your assistance. But nice try! Thanks anyway! :)

Well, it's not as much OPs fault that his brother is ignoring him, unless OP has failed to mention that he was reading the jokes on the side. I mean, even if OP was a complete jerk, that's not something that he would laugh at. Not saying it's the brothers fault either, it's just a case of misunderstanding.

No, sometimes I will be on DYAC and FML while video chatting and occasionally I'll laugh, but usually my friends think they're being funny and goof off alot more.
