Today, we were going to Disney World all the way from North Carolina. After 12 hours of driving, my kids started fighting and complaining. My husband finally said, "If I hear you guys one more time we're turning around and going back home." They annoyed him once again, and we actually went home. FML

Am I the only only one that thinks the dad was kinda harsh? the kids had been sat in the car do 12 hours, they're gonna act up! Wouldn't it of made more sense to pull over and let everyone calm down before continuing the drive? Also OP, you're the parent aswell, didn't you get a say in this?

158- what you said is right but still the father did warn them :/ and from what it seems they don't listen/take their parent seriously :(

I would be mad to if I "waisted" my time

126 for the last ******* time you are not the one that modded the fml. you and 1000 other people did, then it got enough people to accept it so it went to the fml staff, and then they deemed it worthy... it pisses me off when people think they were responsible for accepting an fml.

You should have just gone too Dick's house like they wanted too

I love it when people refer to old FMLs. XD

Can my comment be removed? I remembered just after posting it that "Dick's house" is from a YouTube vidoe, not an FML.

**** that 158. He told them to stop and told them the consequences. Following through with this punishment quite literally drives the point home. Was it a waste of time? Maybe, but they save the rest of the weekend and the money which would have been otherwise spent on gas and souvenirs and other useless crap. Don't **** with Dad, he's a man of his word. Good on him for following through instead of making empty threats.

I live in MD and was thinking the same thing

hollow threats make your kids not afraid of you so they don't listen. good for your husband op. trust me. I used to ignore my parents because they made hollow threats. I'm 23 now so it's not a big deal anymore

how does time relate in any way to a human body part?

Jammy01jams 2

from Toronto it's about 25 hours

hahaha I love it how all of you are fighting and giving these long speeches on this fml and it may not be even true :p

You guys don't have to pound on me.. I'm only 12..... I didn't know you stupid as*holes. My god.. I thought when you except it it goes strait to staff. I didn't know lots of other people modded it. You guys really aren't that cool. So I made a mistake? Big whoop!

why are you on here if you are twelve?

BlackOpsPWNR 0

WTFH are you doing on Fml when your twelve?! GTFHOOFMLFLTYrO

Yeah this isn't really a place for 12 year olds. Also if they turned around and went back to NC why does their location put them in Florida? Fake maybe?

318- The fact that you cannot distinguish between certain homonyms reinforces the fact that you are twelve, perhaps even younger.

but yo those trips be expensive as hell!!

hrun200 0

Ironically, while making fun of another person's homonym error, you too made one by using the wrong "to".

#318: i wonder if you realize you just posted for all the fml staff to see that you are in fact under the age limit of the ToS, and are admitting that you lied in order to register for this site also, waste of gas, perhaps. but maybe after missing out on going to disney world, they'll listen next time their parents tell them to do something. if they fight in the car, they're going to most likely be fighting when they get to the hotel and the park. maybe slightly harsh for being stuck in a car for that long, but regardless, listen to your parents.

That's mean!He could of kept goin lol

clearly he is married to a woman hence not making him a homosexual u ******* nitwit... i hope your dad beat ur ass with a wooden spoon until one of your butt cheeks falls off u fatal stupid ****

Just what I was thinking. lol

agreed.. next time they will not speak for two days!!

@318 ever heard of 4chan? never come off as pathetic or the internet community will eat u alive. it's not because we're bad as a whole, it's because the internet is thought to be harmless. point being, don't take it to heart, and anyway you're to young to be part of internet communities, go hang with IRL friends.

Indeed. Next time those kids hear him say that they'll definitely believe it

At least they almost went to Disney World/land (whatever it was)... We never went. Although, if they are younger kids, 12 hours is a but long, they're most likely bored and cranky. Driving back to my home state of Michigan takes 12 hours and even now, we get cranky. I would have told your husband to maybe just stop for pop or fries or maybe just a rest to give everyone a break. If you want, you could even try music, but it sucks you didn't get to go either :(

giantsfan2010 23

But its the happiest place on Earth! You can't go back. :(

its gay. what does disneyland even have? havent been there in a long ass time. 6 flags is where its at

avatar0810 15

yeah 46 is right and I would so freaking ticked if my dad did that to me. your husband is a pile of .

avatar0810 15

51 you are so out of your freaking mind

51 It's they were going to Disney World, not Disney Land

tweetbaby14 18

46, Disneyland sucks. Disney World, however, is amazing.

well hey, I bet money those kids won't ever be annoying to their dad again. haha

51, I wasn't aware Disneyland was attracted to theme parks of the same gender as itself. Gay =/= stupid, dumb, boring, or anything negative. I'm gay.

carcinogan 0

**** amusement parks overall. same thing over and over again. overpriced as **** too

tweetbaby14 18

187, if you can't afford the amusement park don't go. it's much more effective than complaint online.

151 Why would you say he is poor? That's a bad stereotype you are assuming.

TayonaC 10

not all theme parks are bad I like 6 flags and universal/island of adventure and some water parks Disney is just to crowded and the rides aren't for older kids/adults so I don't care for it much... no offense to any Disney lovers :)

TayonaC 10

aw I'm sorry 156 :/ though I didn't say it was gay still that's rude so I'll apologize on his behalf :)

Disney is aimed towards little kids, and not real big on an amusment park.

it was miserable for me. but that's just because I despise happiness.

Don't cry, it will be over soon.

persianjr1 7

I'm getting anxiety just thinking about if that happened to me.... DISNEYLAND

#72 it says Disney WORLD! :/ not Disney LAND.

157: I know.. I'm not a dumbass. I used to live close to Disneyland (California) And It's my favorite place ever. DisneyWorld and DisneyLand are kind of the same thing......

Did you not have a say in this? YDI

who cares about her say dad kept his word he means business

sourgirl101 28

I'm all for the dad keeping his word but he should not have said them in the first place without discussing it over with the wife. He's not the only parent there. That punishment effected her vacation too and she did nothing wrong. Sounds like the husband is just a control freak. FYL

I can't help but feel that Mom should have had some say especially given that they had been driving for 12 hours. I would seriously hurt anyone who dragged me on a long car ride to go anywhere, and then turned around and went back before making it to the destination. Unless there was some kind of major problem, I would say find a different way to punish the kids. Heck take them to the park but don't let them ride anything. Mom and dad can ride all the rides. Otherwise, that is twelve hours in a car that the OP can't get back, that has now been completely wasted.

thrAsHeRr9081 16

I agree. Good for him for holding up his word.

amen, I did it once but were driving from PA. woke those miserable kids up. did yard work all vacation. Damn, parenting was more fun back then!

If I were OP I wouldn't have overridden his decision. Don't slam me for giving advice on parenting just because I'm 14, by the way--I work at a camp and am an only child, so this situation never would have applied to me anyway. Young kids walk all over their parents these days. Which then translates to EVERYWHERE ELSE. I have had to threaten to send kids to the camp director (the equivalent of the school principal) because they weren't taking me seriously. And why? Because they don't take their parents seriously either. They think if they fight and scream long enough, they will get their way. I had to ban a kid from the tire because she wouldn't get off when her time was up, and when I told her no, she couldn't swing for another minute because there was a huge line, she started shouting about how she never gets a turn on the swing, and she had to wait for a long time, and she only came to the camp two days a week so the kids who came three or five days got to swing more than she did, and she wasn't even going to be there for the last week so she wouldn't get to swing then, blah blah blah........anyway, it took the backup of three other counselors and recess ending to shut her up. She didn't get to go on the swing for the rest of the week, and fought me when I actually enforced it. And that entire huge paragraph I just wrote could have been easily prevented by her parents following through on punishments. This was Let me condense that for the TL;DR people: OP wasn't complaining that she didn't get to go to Disney World. She was upset that the 12 hours of driving was a waste because her kids wouldn't listen to their father. But I really don't think she was mad at her husband for being a good parent.

bet those kids don't step out of line very often anymore

You are an idiot! But nice pic.

when i was a wee lad on vacation up in NC. my two brothers were pissing my dad off. so he kicked them out the car and left them there. i loled cuz i got to go mini golfing and they didnt :P

emwil823 0

Me too, when I was little and my dad said something, we listened because we knew either the belt, the switch, or the hand was coming.

Wow....that but at least ur husband doesn't lie :)

Funkychick101 3

at least he is true to his word. most people wouldn't do that.

Haha! I hear this all the time from parents. Glad one finally stood up and did it. Sucks you missed out, but think of the lesson your kids are learning.

Yeah yeah, great lesson and so, but OP's husband could also have given another punishment, one that didn't punish his partner. I mean, how cruel is this? The kids don't behave properly, and everyone is punished? That's not how it should be. OP probably liked going to Disney, and then, after 12 hours driving (how much money will be lost?) they're going back. Cruel cruel. But, OP, why didn't you do anything? I mean, the ride home was also 12 hours, you had all the time in the world to say 'what the heck, stop the car and calm down'. If you just let this happen, YDI.

What i would have done is, make it to disneyland as soon i get there put the kids in a day care center, and then take my wife for a hot ass ride and after that take her to the actual disney rides ;)

SexiAmber1990 0

yeah I would've went to Disney and left their ass with some sitters.

TayonaC 10

^^ yeah that would have made it even worse on the kids part >:) hah

djeepee think of all the money he's saving you know it's pretty expensive right

cryssycakesx3 22

it's not "cruel, cruel" she should have controlled her kids. if OP would have intervened it wouldn't have had to come to that.

We did that last week my bro got my dad mad on the way to LA and we went home Back to Vegas

didn't know gay couples could adopt children in florida... (op's name)

Hide_Yo_Kids 0

damn I didn't even notice that until now xD

It obviously says they're driving TO Florida FROM North Carolina, hence the 12 hr trip + the location specified..

Ive never met a guy named Jaimie... I have a female teacher named Jayme, and had another named Jaime and know of girls named Jamie... But i dunno.

Some people shorten their names to James from things like Jayme and Jaime.


Jaimie can be a girl's name too. I have some friends with that name.

My aunt's name is Jamey, and my male 5th grade teacher's name was Jamie. It's a name for both genders.

Most Jamies I have known (especially with the OP's spelling--Jaimie) have been girls. You're on a computer. You could have Googled whether or not it's a unisex name before posting this comment.

SilenceIsSilver 0

When dude commented on this here FML OP's name was James. Can't y'all understand why that'd be confusing? :I

I know a lot more female Jaimies than male ones....

who cares? it's the same, just change Florida to north carolina in my previous comment...
