Today, my house got broken into for the third time. The nice police officer said that if I didn't want my house to keep being robbed I should, "Fix the place up so it doesn't look like a crummy vacant building." FML

well then fix it up! its not that hard to paint it and maybe install some good locks XP

If a freaking police officer tells you your house looks like a vacant building, maybe you should take his advice! Don't be a slob.

what an ass! sorry op

slap that officer

haha fmllaunder I just read your comment in herberts voice!!!

That's so mean! I would get so pissed

I once lived in a “crummy vacant building”, before I met Lois and started the show. I was poor and had to eat rats that I would trap using only my trusty hatchet and a 12 pack of gum. I eventually got kicked out when the super realised I was keeping one of the rats as a pet, I named him Wilson.

well then fix it up! its not that hard to paint it and maybe install some good locks XP

I've been wanting to say this for a while, and I'm sure you've heard it already hey, your shirts ripped

I agree, buy a bigger shirt for the twins :D

hey your shirts ripped

Well, it sure made a loser thread.

Don't you guys have anything better to do? As an actual response to Sammy, I partly agree. Sadly, it will take and cost a lot more than paint if the house looks that rundown.

I think she shouldn't be wearing the undershirt

As intriguing as the lovely lady's default might be, please try to keep your comments relating to the FML. ;-)

You guys are no phun! look I spelled phun wrong! haha I am ready to do battle grammar Nazis!

It's quite delicious.

37 - Are you the OP? o_O 33 - I agree. If it's bad enough that people think it's vacant, most likely there's paneling/siding coming off, rust, maybe even broken windows, etc. You'd probably want to get that other stuff fixed first, which can be really expensive.

Sry, 33. didn't look at your profile till now. 0 FML's posted.

#50 No, Rachel is not the OP. She's a moderator. :D

I like your tits!

you should tell him, "maybe if you stop eating donuts, people will stop calling you a pig"

by supporting local coffee and donut shops

You should have reported him. He's there to help not insult. F his life.

your an idiot

I'm surprised at just how frequently this exact sentence (I use that word very loosely) is posted here. It probably averages to a few per FML. If you're going to insult someone at least spell it correctly.

There's no evidence he said that. Report won't do any good. Instead I would take his advice considering he deals with robberies all the time

Report the "nice" officer. If he was doing his job maybe these things wouldn't be happening.

What the hell does a cop doing his job have to do with OP's decision to live in a shithole? Donkey-opening.

Buy a dog :D

a stripper dog that holds $20 bills. :)

I wish my dog fetched $20 bills.

I would have thought thieves would go for nice houses rather than vacant buildings...

ya think? idiot.

you would think so 10 but that's not really the case. it's called broken windows theory. look it up.

There's this thing called a "traphouse." Holds a lot more and better stuff then the nice rich houses.

24 number 10 is too stupid to look anything up. She's a lost cause.

Kelita, are you mentally retarded? You’re calling others idiot, but, in fact, you’re the real idiot. Honeybunches just asked a reasonable question, and you had to viciously attack her. Please get perdix’s anal sticks out of your ass. No offense to perdix’s anal sticks. :D

Wasn't KingDingALing the one with anal sticks?

Nicer houses have higher chance of surveillance and security. Vacant lots are usually easy pickings

i think what the op is trying to say is that it's crummy and vacant because the robbers took everything!!

that's really nothing bad I hate FMLs that aren't life F**kers

I think I've found someone else who has a crummy vacant looking house :)
