Today, I was hosting a pool party, when my husband and his friends got the bright idea of lighting one of the party balloons on fire. Needless to say, it immediately exploded. In shock, he jumped back straight into me, sending me and my $400 cell phone splashing into the pool. FML

That's not good reasoning. What if op already has flat screens? Secondly yeah a flat screen would be less likely to fall into a pool but there are other methods of destruction. You could buy more useful things with 400$ so why buy the tv in the first place?

Yeah.... If you bring your phone to a pool party you did deserve to lose it. If your a guest, leave it in the car or house. If your the host, leave it in the house. I dont really see why you need it, your socialising just fine you don't need to interrupt people to say 'WAIT! I have a text!' *ignores party while I post on facebook about party*

@people saying "why bring a phone to a pool party" - OP said they were hosting the party. It's nice if people can reach the host if they wanna cancel / can't find the way / whatever reason.

I think I'm going to have to agree with 40 and 153- there plenty of reasons for OP to have her cell phone on her, yes even if she's hosting a pool party. She could've had it on her so that she could be easily reached by party guests that haven't arrived yet as 153 suggested, or perhaps she just feels more comfortable knowing that if she has it if she needs it. Also just because she had it on her, it doesn't mean she was constantly texting or checking her phone.

11, I have a good feeling that you're gonna have a thumbs up storm in your near future.
As for OP, I hope it was an iPhone. Otherwise, I wouldn't feel too bad. ;)

Haha, nice. Yesterday evening, I was going through boxes of stuff from years ago when I found a 2002 Harry Potter movie calendar, which got me imitating lines from the first movie (along with other movies involving British accents), eventually influencing this comment. That you read this in the intended fashion when there was no indication present is a nice little coincidence.


More like what makes the modern world go 'vroom.' It is near impossible in this fast-paced technological society for people to survive without cell phones. I don't mean kids and teenagers, but anyone who is old enough to work. One simply cannot try to stick to the 'old ways' now, it's very unwise. Even the shittiest free cell phone will do.

I like how I'm a "trending try-hard" because I have an iPhone.

Oh and like windows Android is made by many different brands. Like HTC. And HTC makes epic phones.

Why does everyone add price tags on FMLs?
My phone was free on contract (unlocked too).
Insure it if you're gonna pay that much and don't have an adequate spare.

I'm probably being too damn sensitive. It just bothers me when people (not just men, but people in general) naturally assume that because a woman has expensive things, a man bought them for her.

Yeah it's stupid to assume. Sadly this is the case a lot :/ Also I'm not saying the man makes more money just that women expect men to still buy things for them even when they have a job
