Today, I went to a family reunion. I laughed at my uncle's Sylvester Stallone impression. Turns out he had a stroke a while back. FML
I agree, your life sucks 39 507
You deserved it 16 519

heyadrian tells us more.

OP here. we didn't know my uncle that well he was one of the family members that dropped off the face of the earth. I came in at the wrong time when people were laughing so I thought he was doing an impression this is both a FML and a YDI

That's just awful.

Thank you for the insightful comment my life has been turned around because of you #1

#30, Your comment was no more enlightening. And neither was mine, nor any other person's who may or may not post on this thread.

Thank you for the sarcasm. It shows you have nothing better to do.

apparently you haven't seen my update

I actually just did.

yeah my family wasn't informed either about him being a victim of a stroke

Then I understand how that came about. It's still awful, but understandable and not your fault.

This is why families should share things! Unless You're a mind reader you couldn't have known...

More of an fml on his side.

If you're family you should really know all this about them. Definitely YDI

Some families aren't very close I guess.

Not all families are close

we weren't close to him he was the family members that disappear from the face of the earth

At a family reunion, there is quite often countless family members who you don't know or you aren't close to. This was probably the case here so you can't really blame them for not knowing.

The only reason to hold a reunion is because they DON'T see each other often.

Also some families are far apart, I live in Australia and the rest of my extended family is on the opposite side of the world in China.

May he thought he 'thaw a puddy tat

was that on fml or 9gag?

99 - I'm sorry I accidentally thumbed you down. My apologies...

Your instructions weren't clear enough. I hopped of a cliff with my penis stuck In a pair of finger cuffs.

My apologies and condolences for your untimely demise.

You couldn't have known, but you could've been a lot more tactful about things, like by asking why his voice was like that, or avoiding the issue altogether and assuming something might have happened. That way you would've avoided a stroke of bad luck.

Agreed. Sometimes things just align and coincide in all the wrong ways. Sorry for you, and for him.

wondered if anybody noticed the "stroke of luck" pun

ahaha good one

Dropped off the face? Stroke? Anyone? No? Okay bye...

You need to practice self control

Why. It is completely possible the uncle was not close and she did not know (which seems to be the case). Also, maybe the uncle was known in the family as a joker

Op also needs to wash the dishes

You need to practice reading comprehension

Well that's just awkward.

Seriously man? Pay more attention to you family.

Well after reading your reply it makes sense why you were not up to date with his problems

Also why does the OP have to keep up with the family? Maybe s/he moved out of state or maybe s/he doesn't see their family often.

Someone needs to do some catching up with their family

Hence the family reunion...
