Today, I was picking my daughter up at day care. She was outside playing kick ball. A red ball rolls over to me, and trying to impress the kids, I kicked it over the slide. I turn around to see three crying six year olds. It was their hamster ball. FML

Wouldn't you feel the difference/see that there was clearly a hamster in it? And who the heck tries to impress kindergardeners? Seriously, though. I could see if ya know, it was your bosses daughter or something, but... come on now.

Oh the humanity! Imagine the irony behind calling him a grammar nazi.

Fact: Nazis were (are) German.
Fact: Kindergarten is a GERMAN word meaning "child garden"
Fact: No Nazi would be stupid enough to misspell "Kindergarten".
Fact: I'm not dissing the person who misspelled it.
Fact: I like saying Fact.


I'm gonna get a lot of shit for this...
But who plays with a hamster outside? Even if OP dropped kicked the poor thing, it was probably bound to get hurt anyway. Not saying its the kids' fault either but with a small animal like that you have to be careful it doesn't get hurt.

Well gee, pardon carmenism for not knowing the loves of hamsters. How was the OP supposed to know that a random ball would have a hamster inside of it? OP, this isn't your fault. But your life isn't fucked either. It's a hamster. I think we'll all be just fine.


um, those balls are fucking CLEAR. there is no way that you could NOT see the animal inside of it. so unless this guy is fucking part blind, there is no excuse. i have one of those for my gerbils, and once quick glance would tell you that there is something inside of it.

and you are fucking sick if you think it's okay because it's 'just a hamster'. that doesn't make it okay to fucking kill it. you're disturbed. i love my gerbils to death and would be extremely hurt if someone killed it, especially in such a stupid manner

They never said they killed the hamster although it is a great possibility but the ball could have busted open. Animals are much tougher than most people presume, I saw a news things about a cat that jumped off of a telephone pole y
then ran away right after it landed.


small rodents have very delicate spines; so it is very likely that a hard kick would kill the hamster, or at least break a lot of bones which can't be repaired.

a kick would cause the ball to spin and the hamster would not have time to land on it's feet in such a case, as it would if it was just jumping off of something. especially if a grown man kicked it while trying to impress little kids. :/

i highly doubt the hamster wasn't injured, which makes the OP a very sick fucking person


Many hamster balls are tinted colours, enough not to notice right away. But of course, thats awful. ive had a few hamster and gerbils and have loved them all so much. if anything happened to them like that i would be devastated

Seriously monicamischief ? What are you, 10 ? Yeah, I had a couple gerbils when I was that age too. And when they died, I cried a tear or two and then MOVED ON WITH MY LIFE. The death of a hamster will not be the end of the world, I promise. And yeah, I'm totally a sick and disturbed person for not crumbling down to the ground of devastation at the death of a fucking hamster. It's a damn rodent. GET OVER IT.

And you, organisedchaos. Yeah, cause everyone on the goddamn planet has information on hamsters through the fucking roof. All I was saying was that when you see a random red ball, one does not think to themselves "Hmmm...well I once read that hamsters love the different smells of the outside world! Maybe there's a hamster in this ball!" Get fucking real. Reality is, when you see a ball come out of your peripheral vision, you act out of instinct. I wasn't standing by the OP's decision. I was justifying the fact that sometimes, people make silly mistakes where they really don't think before they act and then life moves on. You are both stupid fucking morons. Have a nice life.

in the ops defense the kids were playing kickball and a lot of kickballs are red so if she saw a red ball roll up it would be easy to see why she assumed it was a kickball

lmao, i think you're right. it's just a hamster. give them 10$ & they can get a new one. animals & people die all day every day probably for a lot of stupid reasons. oh well. it's called population control. they're like 6, probably won't even remember it by next week when they get something else stupid to focus their attention on.

If not for the fact I don't want to stoop down to your level, I'd say you probably deserve for a really sick fuck to catch you and make you see the world from the viewpoint you give to animals. That their life doesn't matter and that it's ok if they die meaninglessly and no one cares.

I hope you grow up and get less stupid.

Seconding Gween's post. To some random person it may be just a hamster, and life WILL go on afterwards, but it's still a pet- a member of your family basically that died. Upsetting.

That, and, okay- maybe the OP couldn't see the hamster inside, but hamster balls are pretty obviously hamster balls other than that- air slots in them, rolling jerkily as the hamster runs. And maybe the fact that it's hard plastic? Just an FML though I guess.

Ok. 1: You are an idiot. 2: You are an idiot. 3: My hamster ball is translucent, but nt clear. It actually is the exact same size as a kickball, and dark red. I wouldn't have known the difference. So no, he is not an evil hamster murderer for not noticing that there was a hamster inside.

bag de la douche doesn't really make sense in any language, so there's no need to accuse the poster of saying "bag of the shower" because that would be sac de la douche. bag de la douche is mixing both english and french, so you can't really correct either.
