Today, I was on a date with my boyfriend. As we walked back home from the cinema, he was checking his phone, when suddenly someone grabbed it and ran off. I had to be the one to go run after the thug because my 23-year-old boyfriend froze on the spot, crying. FML
Ieri tells us more :
Hey OP here o/ Lots of these comments cracked me up, you guys are awesome xD So here's the follow up: In the end someone who saw what happened grabbed the guy and we could get the phone back (Yes, an iPhone) but he ran away, though it doesn't matter anymore. In response to the comments: 1.I didn't expect him to run after the thug just because he's male, I understand why he'd freeze up, I just didn't expect he'd start crying without saying a word and it was kinda embarrassing. 2.Yeah probably going after him wouldn't have been the safest thing to do, but caught in the spur of the moment that was all I thought to do. And calling the police wouldn't help where I am, they're practically useless -.- Calling for a robbed phone would do nothing. 3.I'm not breaking up with him just because of that, I love him, things happen, I'm not that shallow. Thanks for your comments anyway xD

It's being voted down because it is the epitome of stupid. A comment doesn't have to be amazing but at the very least put in the slightest amount of effort.

Unless you want every comment section of every FML filled with "lol" "damn that sux" and "ydi"


I get your point, but it's to the point where one has to feel like they're walking on eggshells. Comments include reactions to whatever they're seeing. I once said "Uh oh." and I've never seen so many down votes in my life.

There's the huge part of me that says awesome. Especially if you got the phone back OP.
But then there's the part of me that says it was only a phone, what if the robber knew how to fight and/or had a weapon? Getting killed trying to get a phone back is not worth it.

you cant help how you react in these situations!
him crying from getting 'robbed' might have been light traumatizing to him.
like, if someone asks you how you would react in an exstreme situation, honestly you can only guess/hope how you would react, and you might end up reacting completely different if you should end up in said situation.
this is not a 'fml' for the girlfriend, poor guy.

Yes, women should all strive to find male partners who will act on his instinctive judgement. Risking his life for material things is so sexy! If he's a husband and father, maybe he'll even die for his bravery and leave you all alone to raise the kids. So chivalrous, so ideal! =0

But #31 OP's boyfriend didn't "use better judgment" like you're sort of implying. He didn't say "No, babe it's not worth it. I'll buy another one eventually." He froze up... and cried. I'm sorry but honestly that's pretty cowardly.

Did you get a C in spelling and punctuation? Seriously, I hate to be "that guy" but you don't need anywhere near that quantity in punctuation and text lingo belongs in text messages.

So...... Get off the internet?? Cause people do stuff like that every single day!!!!
It's not as if you have to read the punctuations like they are words. You can choose to ignore the excess. You choose however, to make an ass of yourself.

wow. The people who thumbed me down clearly never got my sarcasm xD.

I was only correcting him as a way of saying 'don't be a jerk if you are wrong yourself'.

#61, obviously, I understand that. Sometimes, it just gets on my nerves a little too much and I say something. Not often but sometimes. No need to snark about a pet peeve.

Well said, 12. The fight or flight instinct is most definitely something we're born with and OP should accept that. Even if the crying bit was a little unnecessary, I'd be freaked out too.
