Today, my phone died. I plugged it in to charge and then went out to run some errands. When I returned, my phone was no where to be found, and our shovel was on the floor, muddy and wet. I then discovered my 6-year old son had buried my "dead" 200$ palmpilot because he had felt sorry for me. FML

LMAO!!! I think all of you are reading this comment wrong... I'm hearing a kind of dead pan quality about it, thereby making this comment HILARIOUS to me... I think #1 just has a very interesting sense of humor... something like Paul Mooney or Chris Rock...

You spelled "retarded" wrong, you "retarted idiot". I wasn't beaten as a child, and I'd like to think I'm not a "retarted idiot".

Yeah, because a 6-year-old has the money to pay for it. Idiot. People like you and #63 (and others that are talking along the same lines), I sure hope you don't have kids... or the would be abused kids. You seem to have no understanding of children... you know that at that age, you probably didn't have the sense to know the difference. Seriously, idiots.

hate to tell all you antispanking people, it did wonders for me to get whipped, I turned out fine and I got several good whipings for being a jackass. as a matter of fact I actually have done quite well for myself and credit it to some real punishment besides that timeout bullshit. I now work as law enforcement and that I contribute to true punishment, it helped me keep my record clean knowing that the concequences to my actions are serious.

most wouldn't. since they don't own cell phones and palm pilots lol. i have a few 6 year old cousins. they don't know cell phone/hand held expressions because they don't own one

I have a six year old and he certainly wouldn't understand that expression. I don't think he would bury my phone either, however, but then again he also understands the difference between a living, breathing thing and say....a palm pilot.

I'm sure his father was home, just not right where he was.

Edit- Nevermind, I clearly didn't read the FML very well. Maybe someone was "watching" him while he was out running erands. Or maybe he just had to run to the store or something. I'm sure most 6 year olds can spend 5 minutes at home alone without killing themselves.


It isn't legal to leave a 6 yr old child at home alone. You have to be at least 13. Who was watching the child? If someone was, they obviously weren't doing a very good job of it so make them buy you a new phone ;D. If no one was watching your child, you're a fucking idiot.


Yeah, that's definitely illegal. That, and he's six years old, so yes, he does need someone watching him. I mean, obviously, if he's digging a burial for a dead cellphone, he needs someone watching him.

"...our shovel was on the floor, muddy and wet."

I'd assume it was raining or wet out... soo the phone was probably soaked in the process and has mud in every little opening. Id be shocked if it still worked.


it's not a brat thing. it's cute because he had good intentions. i mean, it's not like he did it on purpose, because that would be bratty. she said, "Cellphone died." So to him, death means it needs to be buried, and she said that he was doing it so she wouldn't feel bad. I don't see how that's bratty.

that's so sweet. not a FYL at all. $200 really isn't that much compared to a story you will be able to tell for decades at family reunions and thanksgiving dinner.
