Today, my sister went into early labor. Instead of telling me, my mom turned to my dog and said, "Guess what? You're going to be an uncle!" Our dog ranks higher than me in our family's metaphorical food chain. FML

At least she didn't tell it it was going to be a daddy.

Is it just me, or is there quite a few of the "My parents like the dog/cat/animal more than me" FMLs on this site?


My dogs ranks higher than me, all my siblings and my dad according to my mam. I think it is like that in every household. Not really FML moment. More of a OMG I'm going to have a niece/nephew.

I agree. Your mom probably just expected you to figure it out when she "told the dog" and she probably didn't mean anything by it. FYL? I think not. My mom told me after she dies all of her money is going to her dog there you go, haha. Pretty common situation, I think.

yeah. get over yourself. not everything is about you.

Too true, she's not becomeing an uncle is she ;]

OP was RIGHT next to her mother. Making this not an FML at all, because OP's mom would've know that OP could hear her. Dumb.

you should have said "shouldn't you tell that to me, grandma?"

wow, i feel so bad for all of you with shitty moms who give more importance to their pet than to their own kids...

pretty sure it would be hierarchy, not a food chain...

At least she didn't tell it it was going to be a daddy.

Yes. Her mom would eat her before she ate her Dog. Which makes this an FML. haha

yeah, my mother is annoying like that too. She will literally walk in the house and say HEY TYSON! MISS ME?!? and then speak to everyone else after she picks him up and pets him for a while. AND she will hang up with you if he starts barking bc he wants to play. :::rolls eyes:::

So next time you're asked to babysit, you just say "ask the uncle to do it"
