Today, I was in the middle of a shower, and downstairs I heard my 7 year old daughter screaming "Mom!! Help! I need you right now!" I panicked and ran downstairs, not giving myself enough time to put some clothing on. It was my neighbor at the door. FML

Those seconds used to wrap yourself in a towel could be crucial in an emergency. I would do exactly as OP did if a family member started screaming for help.

i guess im the only one who thinks that is super strange.
Is it an american thing? i didnt know it was common for people to see their parents naked. I heard once that in the US its normal that everyone has been seen naked by their doctor. i thought even that was weird, unless youve got something wrong. not one person has seen me naked since i learnt to dress myself, besides my boyfriend and he's the only naked person ive ever seen (in real life, besides babies). is that normal for anyone else?

50, I'm betting if you heard your child screaming for help, and you were bathing, you wouldn't take 10 fucking minutes to dress, and then go see what's wrong. Did you even fucking read the fml???


THANK YOU #51! I agree with you, #50 it's actually kinda normal, and even if it isn't, why the fuck would you automatically assume it is an "American thing" that's just being racist!

#50 seems to be living on a different planet than we do...

Or is still young enough no medical check-up was yet needed.

@50: This has nothing to do with US...

i thought it may be american because the US is a different culture with different healthcare. how is that racist? i assumed it was an american thing because the person was from america and ive heard lots of stories of kids in america growing up with their doctors doing "full body physicals" or whatever its called. if my child was screaming id put on a towel. no one wants to see their mums vagina, just sayin.

and how could that possibly seem racist? i wasnt being negative. i was just asking if it was normal for your culture.

Or maybe the neighbour got a good surprise (better than he/she was expecting) AND a puppy.. It's hard to say which the neighbour would have appreciated more, though the OP may or may not have preferred this one..

Once when I was in primary school, I saw two people trying to climb into my garden using a ladder. My older brother called my parents home dad and other elder brothers rushed home and came down from the car holding 'parangs'. Police was also called. And apparently I saw wrong and they were just outside doing something by the roadside. :'( Try not to chastise her too much since in her opinion it probably is an emergency. Next time if there is a real emergency she might not voice out.
