Today, I worked my first day at a nursery. At nap time I spent about an hour trying to get all the kids to calm down and go to sleep. I'd finally got the last one to drop off, when my phone rang. Loudly. FML

When the hell did Mary Poppins get a cell phone?

The children never really nap anyway. They're just laying there with their eyes shut plotting ways to get their revenge against stupid grown-ups that make them do dumb craft with macaroni, and how to get back at that kid who eats all the good play-dough. ... besides, a small child that really asleep wouldn't wake up to a phone ringing, smoke alarms don't wake them and I doubt your phone is louder than a smoke alarm

Superkalifragilisticexbialidocious antidisestablishmentarianism

You spelled supercalifragilisticexpialidocious wrong...

How was he trying to spell that

so then wat happend... did they wake up? you never said... this isnt an fml moment. its just stupid and you had bad luck. quit crying about it

You're a fucking idiot for not being able to draw conclusions based on OBVIOUS things. OBVIOUSLY the phone woke them up, and she probably had to spend another hour, if not more, trying to put them all back to bed.

No #2, they all actually self-destructed at the sound of a ringtone

That's sick. Hahah. Maybe that will teach her to keep her phone on :D

Ummm. It might be an FML to her because she spent a lot of time trying to get them to go to sleep. And if its soooo stupid than why did FML post it on here?

no buddy. your the fucking idiot. calling people shit on the internet. fucking moron...

wow....idiots like you do actually exist!!

fml for wasting 7 seconds to read this! it ain't even an FML!

and you wasted another 10 seconds replying. freaken idiots

more of a YDI, you should've turned your phone off or on vibrate at work!

idk...i don't think the same rules apply in a nursery

You're right, the_stereotype. I worked at a daycare a few years ago. You're allowed to have your phone - obviously it's only for emergencies, but as long as you're not playing with it instead of working, you can have it. There are room phones, which can be loud, but I don't think those were to what the OP is referring.

Where do you get your information????

I'm sure that some kids wake up to noises, just like some adults do. It's called being a light sleeper. I'd like to wake your ass up with a bullhorn one day, though.

There was a research programme done here about 5 years ago into the effectiveness of household smoke alarms. What they found was that kids under 8 had extremely slow reaction times, and kids under 3 didn't wake up to the sound even though they had done fire drills and knew what the noise meant. They were looking at having a back up sound (their mother's voice calling out to them) to reduce the risk of young children dying in house fires.

Very true

YDI for not putting your phone on vibrate

Kyle: Kick the baby! Ike: Don't kick the goddamn baby.

Who called? It was probably one of the parents to make sure that their kids where getting their important nap time. In the future, always have your phone on vibrate because you never know of what people might think when they hear Hannah Montana as your ringtone.

haha oh yes because everyone working with children would have a Hannah Montana ring tone. *shudder* I'll stick with my King Julian "I like to move it move it" one thank you :D

My friend has a Hannah Montana ringtone. Whenever her cell goes off in the locker room, I practically piss my pants laughing at her. She doesn't seem to get why. I'll stick with my Final Fantasy Victory Fanfare, thank you.

I got the joker laughing like a maniac. Really awkward when it goes off in class, seems like my pants are laughing

This is why you put your phone on vibrate or silent...or even off

You are fucking stupid. Burn in hell.
