Today, jumping over the stiles in the Paris subway, I caught my shin on the turnstile. I put my hands out reflexively to avoid busting my face on the ground, but ended up suspended upside down from the metal bars. A kid took a photo. FML

Soon you'll be plastered all over the internet, and your shame will be complete. YDI.

I'd ask for a copy of that photo, it sounds awesome.

I loved doing that as a kid!

you were wearing a tourniquet? I think this word may have been used incorrectly.

'Turnstile' is 'tourniquet' in French, and this FML looks like it was translated from the French version of the site, so it was probably lost in translation.

One question: what made you think that was a good idea? Tbh I would love to see that picture.YDI

Next time, just buy a ticket.

On behalf of the FML community, may I respectfully request that you use that photo as your profile picture here.

hmm...something doesn't seem right

Old submissions have been getting posted for several weeks now, ever since the app overhaul.

The username was in French, so it was likely translated from the French version of the site.

Pics or it didn't happen.

That sounds like a good show!!
