Today, while at work, my ex-boyfriend came in. I pretended not to see him, hoping he would just pass on by. No such luck. He stopped to tell me that he was there for orientation. My company hired him. FML

Obviously something happened in their relationship to where she doesn't want to see him again. And even if OP did do something to her ex, she still doesn't want to see him and especially work with him, or this wouldn't have been an FML.

19- im fairly certain what happened in their past was that they broke up. speaking from personal experience, bumping into an ex is awkward regardless of how you broke up. OP was probably just trying to diffuse the situation


Honestly I think he got the job to be around you. I mean he knew where you worked (assuming since y'all dated)... So for him to get the same job kind of makes me think he's not over you.

It's funny that some people say they weren't serious only after they start getting some negative feedback on their comment.

Maybe she does own the company. But so what? That's not entirely relevant, and if you chose to nitpick on that detail, I think you missed the point of this FML.

Also, FML only allows the stories to be up to 300 characters, so sometimes there isn't enough room to phrase things in the best way possible.

Ah well, better get used to him again. Or quit.

I would think people break up because-- they no longer want to see/deal with their ex. Yes, the OP could remain civil but that doesn't mean seeing that person every day, (perhaps 40 plus hours a week) is what anyone would want.

And finding another job might not be as easy as you make it out to be. :P
