Today, my long-distance boyfriend got extremely drunk and insisted that we left the Skype call on all night so it was like I was there with him. I woke up to the sound of him vomiting loudly at 3am. FML

At least OP is the one he wants to talk to when he's drunk though.

Also don't forget the fact that they have not made haven't made smellovision but other then that he is a keeper...

I'm almost afraid to know what #60 is trying to say.

Well at least it seems like you guys are good at keeping in touch even though it's a long distance relationship

although some things are better done alone

Actually it's a good thing she was 'there' to wake up to that. Many people have died as a result of throwing up alone (jimmy hendrix and bon scot being two famous examples), she could have checked if he was ok and if not could have phoned for potentially life saving assistance.

If the guy was in another country, how would she know what number to call?

It's easy to look up on the internet. Besides, australia is a massive country. Op and their partner may just be in a different state or something. In which case, i imagine it's the same number.

#28: The FML says they were using Skype. Skype works on the Internet, so it doesn't have to use phone numbers. Besides, if they're in a relationship, they probably know each other's phone numbers or would be willing to share that with each other.

#28 was talking about which emergency number to call. In America it's 911, whereas the Netherlands people use 112. 28 was asking how OP would know what emergency number to call if it had been necessary. It's obviously easy to look up on the internet, but you know.

If you call the emergency number for another country in one country, it automatically redirects you to your local number. I tried calling the Australian one once :(

Not always, here in the uk you can dial 911. But even if it does, you can still be redirected by the operator.

there is always an alternate number in case the 911 line is down in the US and if I remember correctly it was the same in Korea so of you dial the country code and the alternate emergency number you should be able to reach someone in the other location

Well, he's a keeper. Nice that he tried, though. I guess.

seems like OP is a keeper since she was there for him ^~^

shaww 28

It's the thought that counts

It could've been you, try to comfort him

I am 16, but I don't see the interest in alcohol at all.. Can someone explain why it's so great anyway?

Good for your blood circulation, as long as you don't overdo it.

Makes people seem more attractive than they actually are.

I'm 19 (in dog years, of course). I tried it once, thought it tasted bitter, and decided that I didn't like it and that it just wasn't for me. I honestly don't see the hype either.

I personally don't care one way or another either. However imo people do it because they like the way it makes them feel, or when they are young, just because it makes people do crazy and stupid things and they think thats fun and makes for a good time. Some alcohols that don't have a high alcohol content don't taste to bitter and are not really bad tasting. It's all about preferwnce.

I'm 23 and I don't drink often at all. I like the taste of some alcohol like hard cider and some wines and being tipsy can be fun, but mostly alcohol just makes me sleepy. I don't understand the hype about being drunk either, which is why I don't drink a lot because I'm very much a light weight. In some social settings it's nice because being tipsy makes me more talkative and engaging which can lead to fun conversations where I would otherwise be too reserved to speak much. It's just not for everyone, though, you definitely shouldn't feel pressured to drink if you don't want to :)

Most people drink because it numbs the mental pain they're in, if you watch Shameless on ShowTime, Frank drinks because he hates himself and when he's drunk he doesn't really think about it. Drinking isn't good and I don't suggest anyone does it but it's a personal choice.

Alcohol in moderation is. Agood social lubricant. Some people enjoy the taste and the feel of a good mellow buzz. Nothing wrong with alcohol if you can drink in moderation.

Should have put a bucket under the screen and patted it that way it would feel like you were comforting him.

It's called a volume nob...turn the volume off and you won't wake up.

Your computer has a KNOB?! What year is it from?!?

I really hope this isn't the way things go when you ARE with him.
