Today, my husband and I went on vacation. We got lost and had to ask the locals for directions to our hotel. Neither of us could understand their accents, and we ended up wandering around blindly for hours until we made it back on our own. FML

I agree, not to mention the fact that this FML could've ended in a much more entertaining fashion. Couldn't you have added something about wild animals, angry hobos, or nude men with spears getting tazed in the park?

After all the corrections made on this site, after all of the Grammar Nazi members to proclaim their beliefs... One always finds someone who insists on not learning the differences between your and you're.

They like to bitch about the grammar Gestapo, but don't bother to see what they are bitching about. A bit like yelling at a wall for being in your way while continuing to run into it repeatedly, over and over.

I'm aware of the difference, I was too tired to track down the sneaky apostrophe and shove it up there. However, I do see some poor confused soul had already shoved it up your ass :D

Also, if you had written "youre" instead of "your," we could have POSSIBLY forgiven YOUR perceived ignorance. Sounds like YOU'RE just making lame excuses.

102 - thank you, that was actually bugging more than the "your"
I mean, if you mix up "your" and "you're" you're stupid, okay, that's not always your fault - however that doesn't mean we'll go any easier on you nor will the argument to fix you lose any fuel, but still
Not putting in an "s" is just lazy and worthy of a slow death in a small cage hanging over the side of a cliff above aligators while small children pummel you with stones

I always learn to say a few basic phrases on the language of the place I'm going to avoid situations such as these...maybe you all should try that.

Not necessarily. The people may have been using broken English with a thick accent and that's why they couldn't understand. Like when I can't understand people from NYC. They're speaking my language but I have nooooo idea what they're saying...

You missed the point. I wasn't saying you should learn another language to go to NYC. I was saying you can be speaking the same language and not understand because of accents (the native people may have been speaking English to them and they didn't understand anyway).

Exactly, some of the best times I have had whilst travelling is when I just got lost for a little bit... I mean mind you everything in moderation but still. The real culture is hardly ever in the guide book
