Today, I went to get a box of cereal and I knocked over a bottle of olive oil. It took me about half an hour to clean up. When I finally finished, I found out the box of cereal was empty. FML

Oh my gosh your life is so hard

Any person that takes half an hour to clean up a broken olive oil bottle deserves this.

^Have you ever tried to clean up oil, of any kind, it does not clean up well. I work in a restaurant and a half-gallon of cooking oil broke open and my boss had me clean it up, it took well over a half hour to get it all cleaned up before you could walk on it without falling.

lol just get dish detergent. it's really tough on oil

I use cat litter too soak up grease it would probably work for oil

Why was there no lid on the oil? Or better yet, why was it not stored in a cupboard, and not one with cereal in it. And why would you put an empty box of cereal in the cupboard?

maybe the olive oil was in a glass bottle and it broke...?

If OP has children, all of your questions are answered.

my husband puts empty boxes back in the cupboard all the time. perhaps OP lives with an irresponsible and lazy person. I hope it wasn't the good olive oil. that's expensive stuff.

... Shut the hell up.

Cereal killer.

20, 12 never said she was stupid. They were simply saying what if that was the face 6 made when they got it..

Well... that's a bummer. It depends on which type though. If it was an empty box of Wheaties, then you shouldn't feel too bad. However, if it was Cinnamon Toast or Captain Crunch then FYL. There's nothing worse than wanting good cereal and not being able to have any.

captain crunch sucks. that crap shreds my mouth. I always regret eating it. those berries are just there to trick you into eating glass bits.

OMG the world is going to fuckn end!!!!


I dont see how anyone would put back an empty box anyway.. And I bet you'll learn not to keep glass in front of other objects :) Im sorry you had to clean up oil, that must have been a bitch to get up BUT you did bring it on yourself..

I appreciate this FML. It's a true FML. How they should be. It's not something that's really really unfortunate. I find it disturbing that people actually read this to hear miserable things. This is funny and relatable. Thanks, OP, for giving us something worthwhile.


I like real fml's "today, I got fired, my wife left me, and I was paralyzed from the waist down due to a fight with an angry horse"
