Today, multiple people admired my elaborate face paint. This happens every Halloween, at least every Halloween since I got badly burnt in a car accident. FML

That has got to be the worst fml I've read. I'm sorry about that.

It's unfortunate that you are forced to remember the accident's effect on you every Halloween. If you're a glass-half-full type of person, I'd suggest that you enter costume contests, to try and make the best of your situation. :)

Just tell them you like turtles.

Or trains.

Why is that a dumb thing to ask? Any other time of the year sure but at Halloween I think that's the expected response. It's unfortunate but I don't think it's other people's fault for not guessing it might be real.

Awh I'm sorry!

It depends on where he lives. My question would be whether or not he sees the same people all the other days, so they should recognize him and not make that mistake. If he lives/works in a city, then I can see that happening. In a small town, however, one would expect that he sees the same people day-in and day-out.

59 - Wikipedia says Kingston upon Hull (OPs city) has a population density of 9,000 per square mile. I'd say that's a decently sized city (my town doesn't have 9,000 people total, and I still see a crapload of complete strangers everyday).

I'm pretty sure he wasn't asked by people who already know him...'facial burns from a car crash' isn't exactly something friends/acquaintances tend to forget...

Well, It's Halloween so you can't blame them. But this FML is awful. It's not even funny, like I feel really bad for OP. I'm sorry about your car accident and I know how much worse it is to have it pointed out like that. Try wearing a mask on Halloween so people don't mistake your face for an "elaborate face paint".

nothing is so bad as not to be good for something

This is not encouraging

And if he DOESN'T want to be a burn victim for Halloween every year?

Lol dammnnnn I didn't realize how stupid I sounded, was in class and rushing. Sorry guys for taking up number 2 spot.

The one day a year, OP doesn't need to purchase a mask, definitely doesn't make up for the lifetime of being a burn victim.

69- excuses, excuses

I think that's a little hurtful, don't you think?

They didn't mean to be asses, can you blame them? It's Halloween...

^ true, but in most cases you can kind of tell when a person is severely burned or wearing face paint

Well people can use liquid latex and a few other things to replicate it easily... And then face paint/make up over the latex. It's not always that easy to tell if it's real or not.

That has got to be the worst fml I've read. I'm sorry about that.

Yeah this one isn't even funny, just makes you feel bad for OP. I'm sorry OP.

Seriously, it's sad

Every Halloween, you should dress as Zuko. Then you really do have the best damn costume.

Agreed. This has to be the truest "FML" I've ever read.

You know what they say about assume..... Except in this case, there's only one ass in the room.

When you assume you make an ass out of you and me

Yes, tell people trying to be nice to shove it up their ass. That'll get you far.

Because acting like an asshole is the proper response to a compliment, amirite??

im sure you wouldnt appreciate it if you were badly burnt and people kept saying "cool face paint" when its not.

Can you blame them...I mean it is that time of year

Yes. Yes, I can.

Make the best of it OP. I have rheumatoid arthritis and it tends to jack up my knee and makes me limp. But instead of being sad about it I choose to be a zombie or something creepy for Halloween. I look like I'm in character and it perfects the costume. Don't let your problems bring you down :)

13- That's actually a really cool idea. Kudos to you for turning your health issues into something fun. :) 23- How are they creepers?

You don't hide it, you accentuate it, make it part of your costume and it will be the most realistic costume in the place.

Total agreement. Dress as a firefighter, and go win a prize somewhere for Best Costume! This sucks...but it's also the one day a year where your scars can be a plus. Don't miss the chance.

Who the hell would say he deserved it? Crazy!

Sometimes I will miss where I click on something and accidentally vote one way or the other. Maybe this happened for 54 people?

Still think so at 1100 ppl?? Some people just do it because they can. Some people are just plain rude.
