Today, I was taking my dogs for a walk, then it started to rain, and the wind went mad. I ran for cover in the trees near a bridge, slipped and fell into a river. I was soaking wet and my boots were full of water. Then to get back out of the river, I had to use stinging nettles as hand holds. FML

No no, it's not prickly; the stinging is because its leaves make your hands tingly / painful the longer you touch them. It's a defense mechanism to keep animals from eating them. It hurts.

Fuuuck I hate stinging nettle! It's all over my horses paddock. I was weeding it all out with gloves on and it still got through and stung the crap out of my hands! :(

LOL @ people thinking this shit is closely related to jellyfish. Stinging nettle is a plant. It's in a completely different kingdom from jellyfish.

So... let me get this straight... you ran for cover because of rain and wind? And it sounds like you lost control of the leashes at some point, too.

YDI entirely... for being an irresponsible owner, and for panicking at precipitation.
