Today, I went to my son's high school play. The moment I arrived at the auditorium, I shouted out his name to let him know I made it. Thinking I was a student, a teacher yelled, "SHUT UP AND SIT DOWN!" Scared out of my mind, I quickly obeyed, to mass giggling from the kids. FML

6, you seem to be missing the point of this website. Besides, your big problem doesn't make other people's smaller problems nonexistent.

If you're old enough to have children, you're plenty old enough to know how to behave appropriately at a performance. Considering that you thought it was okay to shout out your child's name to announce your arrival, you're probably guilty of other performance faux pas, including: talking through the performance, answering or making cell phone calls, blocking other attendee's view of the performance so you can film or photograph, creating disruptions by entering and exiting the auditorium during the performance versus waiting until the intermission, standing instead of sitting in your chair (rule suspended at rock concerts), and calling attention to yourself by whooping, whistling, calling out, or vigorous waving/jumping up and down or other disrupting behavior. In other words, when you go to a performance, sit down and shut up.


#6- Frankly, I could care less for your pity gouging fest. That is a sad ordeal, but coming here to pout is unnecessary. This is their FML. You don't like it? Too damn bad. The point of this website is not sharing a life changing experience but the small woes of the day.


wtf does that have to do with anything? yeah it sucks that your mom has cancer and all but that doesn't mean you have to go onto FML and go around commenting that you have worse problems. it's really immature.


Exactly. If a teacher who spends his/her time around obnoxious, unruly high schoolers all day thinks your behavior is easily mistakable for theirs, you're doing something wrong.
