Today, I was heading to the beach with my mom following. I went through a yellow light and got a call from her complaining that I had left her. So, I made it a point to stop at the next yellow light. She rear-ended me. FML

TheFlickChick tells us more.

It sucks, but it was an accident, I didn't slam on brakes or anything but it was at the bottom of a little hill, and the van she was driving was much heavier and harder to stop than the mustang she is used to that will stop on a dime.

You're butchering the English language.

Is your mom Helen Keller? She claims you left her and then rear ends you...

lol from that fml from yesterday

Obviously her mom isn't Helen Keller, cause Helen Keller is dead. Silly hipster!

Helen Keller can't really have a conversation on the phone with someone. Why? She's deaf.

Wanna know why the hipster likes Helen Keller? Cause she's underground... ;)

Why can't Hellen Keller drive? Because she's a woman!

Why isn't she in the kitchen?

Show it anyway

Did you consider that they might have used hands free?

Why the thumbs-down on Doc's comment? Whether cell phone use was directly responsible for the collision in this case or not, he's still correct.

It wasn't the call that caused the collision, it was the mom. But yes, Doc, cell phone use while driving should be taboo.

You mean the mom who was also using her cell phone while driving? Yes, you are absolutely correct.

No I think the FML means that they had the conversation and hung up. Then at the next light the driver is response to to earlier call decided to stop at a yellow and got rear ended. This is a case of a woman driver, not cell phone use, though the two usually go hand in hand.

The collision probably happened after the conversation so they werent using their phones at the time.

Probably not honestly. They could have gotten off the phone by the next traffic light. It was the mom being stupid and thinking the op would go.

Agree with 41. From the way it reads, they were no longer on the cell phone. OP's mom rear ended them because she was afraid to get left behind again. As a matter of fact, had they still been on the phone, in this case it would have stopped the collision from happening as OP could have explained they were about to stop at the light.

You don't have to push a button to talk to your passenger. Unless your passenger is a robot.

You don't need to push a button to use hands free either except initially to answer the call, and even then, some have auto-answer..... On that note, let's ban all car stereos for distracting drivers.

THEY ARE BOTH ******* STUPID. Why in the **** did you not carpool with your mom, OP? Saves gas, money, and an assload of risky communication. YDI. Go ahead, thumb me down. I'm still right.

Instead of banning the load of distracting shit that causes accidents on roads, I would personally advocate research into auto-piloted flying cars. Or hovercrafts. Or trained, saddled velociraptors. Problem solved.

This argument is pointless! Who cares if cell phone use caused the collision or not, the whole point that doc was trying to make is that they shouldn't have been using their cell phones in the first place.

Actually it is not against the law to talk on your phone, in any state. Maybe it is while you are driving

The call and bump up were about 20 mins apart.

PS-In NC it is only illegal to use a cell phone if you are under 18.

Despite this being the only post I've ever seen Doc fail in, I'll thank you OP for clarifying because even I (the most comprehensive of all) failed to realize the true scenario of this FML. Now tell Doc you're sorry for the bury.

#4 While I don't have facts to back this up, my hypothesis is that they were both off of the phone when she rear-ended him. It's the mother's fault, she probably forgot and hit him, although I do agree that using a cellphone and driving is a bad idea.

Female drivers, eh? eh?....No? ok...

Women drivers, gotta hate them. Yes, I know I'm slightly sexist. Get over it?((:

but yellow light means go faster.

It depends how far you are from the lights

In my language, lemons means go faster. But not everyone is a fruit dealer like me. P.S.: How was that watermelon flockz? Good? You want more? I have something special for you coming up then..
