Today, my son is having housing issues, so I let him stay at my place for a while. Today, he found out that the quiet, dorky-looking professor who lives next door is an MMA fighter. He tried to break into the guy's house in the middle of the night and is now in the hospital. FML

The dumbass son is also lucky the dorky quiet professor doesn't keep a loaded 12 gauge with buckshot in the bedroom closet.
He could be in the morgue rather than the hospital.
Now he's got a chance to learn from his mistake.

Highly unlikely he learned his lesson if he's having housing issues and breaking into people's houses likely he will never grow up and adult.


Because he's an asshole. I'm sorry, but I have no sympathy for anyone who steals or breaks into a house, no matter your situation. I have been poor and I never once stole or even thought of stealing. It's a shitty thing to do. If you are desperate, there are places that will help you. And clearly OP's son had parents who helped him and yet he chose to be a dick and steal.

I agree with you there on never having stole and being a pathetic thing to do, but you can't lie, everyone at some point thinks about stealing something.
Now the difference is actually doing it.

I'm really hoping people aren't thinking a I'm trying to sympathize or some shit, it isn't okay at all. Someone asked his reasoning, I gave the probably answer. Just because he chose the terrible way of doing it doesn't mean that wasn't the reasoning


#40 when I say "Never thought about it" I meant "Never thought about actually doing it" haha, I have thought "I could easily just slip this in my pocket and take it" but I'd never do it; I'm too much of a pussy.

35 isn't wrong, if they did a "he deserved it" they'd have to do a "she deserved it" as well for the FML's not involving a male. A "They deserved it" button would work in general, unless of course the autho was given the choice to pick an 'HDI' or 'SDI' button.

Exactly. It could have been worse too. I train in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, where you learn how to break peoples arms, legs, choke them unconscious, and control their movement in a fight. I don't look like I'm particularly well built, but I will take an opponent apart in seconds. BJJ was designed to benefit more lean practitioners. Plus there is the added danger of breaking into and armed citizens home and getting shot...

Hopefully you say FML because your son is such a dick. Hopefully he learned his lesson. Perhaps apologize for your idiot son and hope that the neighbor won't hold his actions against you. Having a bad relationship with neighbors is best avoided if possible.
