Today, I was driving home through the middle of nowhere when a screw punctured my car tire. I arrived at the town's only auto shop to find that it had closed early. Frantic, I dialed the emergency number listed on the shop's locked door. On the other side of the glass, a phone began to ring. FML

Obviously the guy would've called someone eventually, but it's the ridiculous cruel irony of this that makes it an FML. He's stuck in the middle of nowhere, finds the only auto shop there is, and the number they post to call in an emergency is the phone in the shop, where nobody happens to be because they closed early. FMLs don't have to be unsolvable... I generally find that they're one of those "Oh, come ON" moments that we all have to deal with sometimes.


Change your own tyre woman.


sucks to be you

I may be wrong here, but I think 5 was trying to be funny.

I'm not going to make any assumptions here, but you did have access to a phone. You are living in what some believe to be the most technically advanced country on the planet, you couldn't make a call to information and then call AAA? Last time I checked, it is 2009 in Massachusetts too. Hardly a FML...

I believe you actually have to be a member of AAA for them to come out and pick your car up. Maybe the OP wasn't a member.

might not be a member of AAA but he could at least call for a tow truck or something. Granted I think he should have had a spare. If you don't have a proper spare you shouldn't be driving that far.
