Today, the people fixing my phone called to say that for some reason, my phone's SIM card has wiped all my contacts except for four, and they are doing their best to try and recover the rest. I had to explain to them that I only had four contacts to begin with. The guy laughed. FML

So you only need to contact four people. Big whoop. For all he knows they could be the president, the pope, the Dalai lama and his mom.

You should have let them try to recover your contacts, and then feigned outrage when they couldn't. Would've made for a good hearty laugh.

Some people still only carry cell phones in case of emergency. Several people I know are not plugged into their phones and only have a few contacts listed and they have very active lives and simply still memorize peoples numbers, like we all had to before cell phones. Summary: number of contacts not equal to sum of social life.

Tell you what, I'd rather have 4 close and trustworthy friends than 1000 mere aquaintances any day.

93 - Being Mr. Satan, I assume you have a few billion mere acquaintances.

I always find amusement in the deception and manipulation of the unknowing. If I do, someone else likely does as well, yes?

It's better to have a few true friends than a whole bunch of fake friends

Very well said. :). Personally have only 15 contacts and 6 are coworkers lol. True friends are very friggen hard to come by!!

It's also nice to have work contacts, pizza delivery numbers, emergency contacts, cab number, adult guardian, local hot spots, real friends to hang out, fake friends to screen their call, vet (if applicable), etc.

Yeah. I remember for quite some time I had like three contacts, and one was family. If I had the choice between a handful of friends that I know and know me well, or 10,000 'friends' I know nothing about, I could answer that in a heartbeat.

I favorited this FML just for your comment. Nicely done :)

*to the tune of Gilligan's Island* The President, a former Pope, the Dalai Lama, and his mom

Don't feel too bad, I am sure a lot of people only truly have a few contacts. A lot of contacts on my phone are classmates, coworkers. I maybe talk to three people on my contact list. I am sure most people are the same.

I think this is true for everyone, you only talk to two or three people on your phone, the rest are jjust there cause you think you might need to contact them someday.

19 that's exactly why like 90% of my contacts are there.

You could have claimed you accidentally deleted them yourself or that it was a new phone that you hadn't transferred numbers onto yet... There were ways to save the embarrassment. Maybe you need to put yourself out there more and make more friends if you're unhappy about it(:

He didn't say he's not happy with his four contacts

Which is why I said "if". I personally wouldn't care in the same situation, but OP is clearly embarrassed or else they wouldn't be on FML

This is sad... but also really funny. Imagine what would've happened if you hadn't told him.

Because OP has four good friends instead of 500 people they barely even know. Poor thing.

It's fine to not have a lot of friends, lots of people like small social circles. But this post makes me think you don't even like your family, which is kind of sad. Maybe you should try and spend some more time with them. (My apologies if they're assholes and you cut them off for legitimate reasons.)

Conatct 1: Mom Contact 2: Dad Contact 3: BFF # 1 Contact 4: BFF #2 ^completely plausible^

Don't worry Op! I only talk/text to like 5 people on my phone. Who cares how many contacts you have :)

Agreed, the majority of the people on my phone are only on there in case I need to ask about homework!
