Today, it's my first Halloween in America since moving from Russia. While handing candy to children, my roommate told me to compliment a little girl by saying "You have a face only a parent could love". I found out it isn't a compliment when I was punched by her Dad. FML

I know some FML's are inevitably fake and I kinda think this one is. Unless that dad was fresh outta jail I doubt any parent (or any normal person) would react so violently.
I've had foreign professors, doctors, and coworkers who have all mixed up phrases and idioms, and never was my first though to punch them but ask them to clarify instead.

82- OP could've had his roommate or someone else American write it or check his writing. Also, having good grammar is far different from knowing American cultural subtleties.

I agree with 82. Grammar is perfect, better than most americans. How could op not have known what he/she was saying in such basic english in this situation. And if op is straight from russia wouldnt the guy have heard a deep accent and given him some sort of break?

You know what? I really hate all these russian stereotypes I get bothered at school because of them (and I don't have an accent I have lived in th U.S. For my whole entire life) so please stop with all the stereotyping
