Today, I woke up at my cousin's house after staying the night. I went into the bathroom like I usually do and shut the door. Apparently the door lock on this bathroom doesn't function properly. I discovered this when my 4-year-old cousin walked in on me putting a tampon in. FML

I created this account to respond to some of your comments.. My cousin is a boy, and it was a very awkward explanation. I just told him that it's a girl thing and that he'll learn about it when he's older. I don't think it affected him that much. Also, #7, I enjoyed your comment the most.

Boom. Life lesson. If your cousin asks, just tell him/her sometimes you have to just pull some strings to get by.

Or you have to make a few objects disappear into your body to get anywhere... its just the circle of 1st world life.

I can't imagine how you explained that.

"You know how you pull the strings on your toys to get them to talk? Well it's kinda like that..."

She's the man idea works. Look! For when you...get...nose...bleeds. Anywhere.

I can't wait for the day my ****** talks when I talk out a tampon. "Hey thanks for the uncomfortable cotton wad!" So ungrateful.

This was in reference to #11...sorry for multiple posts; my computer's being wonky with them. I apologize and will run away now...

What's wrong with just telling the truth? In a child appropriate way of course. People are too squeamish and worried about 'innocence' these days - they end up overcomplicating simple issues and projecting adult perspectives onto children.

Well, if it's a boy, it might really disturb him. Grown men are often squeamish about the whole menstruation concept.

Thank you!! Somr Parents are too afraid to talk to their kids and some kids are to afraid to talk to their parents. About things like sex. Thats why some kids are doing it at the age of fetus.

Supposedly, if you remember anything from the age of 4 and earlier, you're some kind of genius. Hopefully he doesn't remember. Or, maybe, he will? I don't know which to hope for.

Why do I feel like the FML would be better from the cousin's point of view?

Today, I learned my bathroom lock doesn't work. I discovered this when I walked in on my older cousin putting something white in between her legs. FML

#7 said something like "Today I saw cousin puttin a sick into her peepee fml"

#75, I think Noor made that comment, it was probably moderated I remember it from yesterday before it disappeared into nothingness.

I feel like 4 years old is young enough that this wont scar him until years later looking back on it.

Your poor cousin! I know that I would probably be scarred for life if that happened to me

I wouldn't be scared depending on how closely related us cousins are.

What ever happened to knocking?

Most parents/adults don't do it; I'm not sure we can expect a four year old to, unfortunately.

**** knocking, whenever I use the restroom I kick the door open like It's a drug bust.

maybe it's the fact that he's four.

You knock every time you go to the bathroom?

If the door is closed, knock. I think that makes sense.

Uh ouch! It will cost some deep scars in the sole of the poor child.

At least he doesn't know what it is?

Just yet, he won't quit until he finds out just like any other kid would do.

**** your cousins life... Sheesh :/

That's very unfortunate for the both of you.
