Today, while going on a jog through the countryside, I discovered that it is actually possible outside of crappy TV shows to have a rifle leveled at you, and to be shouted at to, "Get off my land." FML

Ol' Man Jenkins is not pleased with all these whippersnappers on his lawn.

you don't deserve a gun being pointed at you but you shouldn't run on someone's private property either


I mean, everything is possible.

You better thank God you didn't have the bright idea to tip one of his cows or you would've got shot

With his User Name, he didn't have to tip any cows. He got exactly the right amount of respect that he gave the property owner (who had every right to do what he did). I know the guy with the gun couldn't have known his User Name, but if he thinks low enough of him to call him a "fucking hick" behind his back, what must he have been doing that he left out of his story?

He was secretly fucking the pig.

Yeah, I mean even in interspecies seahorse-human relationships the boyfriend can get pregnant.. Apparently.

Good thing he wasn't in Texas... O.o

Or maybe OP just saw the guy's reaction as ridiculous, having a gun pointed at him for jogging through. I mean maybe the guy has some reason and OP was too far into his land for comfort, but what kind asshat points a gun at someone for jogging? I'm guessing he also shoots every single deer and rabbit that trespasses in his land too? Maybe for the sake of his grass. If Op didn't acknowledge a trespassing sign then it's his fault. If there was no sign and it was far out in his land, then the guy is a real jerk.

Maybe he is afraid of someone robbing him. Better safe than sorry.

The word impossible itself does spell "I'm possible"

The guy probably was a hick if he pointed a gun at OP for this. Overreaction much?

There is no apostrophe in impossible. Im is not a word, therefore, no. Furthermore, YOU'VE JUST BEEN LAWYERED!

Or maybe the Original Poster didn't include the whole story. We, as people, rarely do. We tell only that which puts us in the best light and leave out what makes us look bad. So, maybe OP didn't include the part about the 17 chickens he was trying to take or he left out the part of the story where he was keying the guy's car as he was jogging by.

53 - Unnecessarily rude usernames usually piss me off but even I think this one is justified. I've seen people get away with a lot worse on here.

125- well it makes more sense for us as the audience not to make assumptions that go beyond what was presented in the FML. Otherwise it'd be no point to reading them because every individual would add their own assumptions, possibly changing the whole message of the post.

121- it's an Audrey Hepburn quote.

Which is my point exactly. I've moderated thousands of these little stories and most are so fake a child could see through them. I've learned that we almost never get the whole truth.

#92 > You're nuts, I'd call that hillbilly a freaking psycho too if that had happened to me. Jogging is not exactly a threatening activity. You Americans and your fetishist obsession with guns, honestly…

If it was on my land and near the house he is a good 1/4 mile in and I would have done the same thing but we have a problem with meth heads trespassing

#121 He was being clever. HA! YOU just got LAWYERED!

Maybe he didn't know he was tresspassing. Some times people have so much land that it would be stupid to put up a fence around it. Like if you were in a foresty area or something.

I think it's safe to assume that he didn't know he was jogging on someone else's land. Is your heart rate back to normal, OP?

44- People who own mass amounts of land usually put up posted signs.

City folk. Tsk tsk. Gosh darnedit, got no ider where their walkin at, fact that we gots us some wolves back that way and their runnin their ass aroun' like they ain't got a care in the world! ***********awkward as I realize that I actually talk like that*****

This actually happens on a lot of public property too. Here in Northern California, there are many large scale marijuana farms located illegally within national forests or state parks and they are patrolled by well-armed farmers.

I don't know about anywhere else, but in Oklahoma, you have to have a fence around your property, no matter how big it is, and put up signs if you're going to point a gun at someone for being on your land. And most states here in the south are like that too. But we also get to shoot you dead after the first warning if you don't leave. They do not joke around with trespassing laws down here. Lol.

Yeah that's why I love Texas. We didn't stutter when we told you to get lost the first time and we weren't asking. . . But you don't need a fence around your property. Signs do help but I learned that if there is a sign ANYWHERE on the property, even if it is destroyed to where you can barely read the lettering, and it's hidden behind vines on the ground next to the fence it still counts.

America and their stupid gun laws, it's insane that people who are that much out of their mind can get a gun

131- it sounds like you're just looking for an excuse to shoot other people.

NagainaFier 16

Woah woah woah. So you're telling me that it's insane the 'hick' was trying to protect his land? Yeah, OP might have been minding his own business, but if he knew it was private property, he deserved it, and if he didn't, then that's unfortunate and hopefully he learned to be more cautious. As for the 'hick', clearly OP was too close for comfort. If I've got some stranger I've never seen on my property, there's going to be a problem. Fact of the matter is the 'hick' had no way of knowing who OP was or what he was doing on his land.

Tia very true

139-Not insane. We "hicks" are completely in our right mind, and want to protect what is rightfully ours. A truly insane person, if they wanted a gun bad enough, would get one. If a person is quack enough to want to go kill somebody, they're quack enough to go steal a gun. And that is why we have gun laws. To protect ourselves from those that would harm us.

107 - Yes, there does have to be a warning before you shoot 'em dead. But if they're gunna be shot anyways, who cares? Lmao They are plenty places to hide bodies out in the backwood, and hey, pigs eat anything. ;)

In Texas and if its night time you don't have to warn them

Not really. They're not so "insane"... just assholes. I grew up in an area like that. They mostly are self righteous, and think of themselves as good people that are just protecting their property and personal rights. They're not in the state of mind "let's go get us some of the OTHER other white meat". Well... most of them aren't, anyway..........

140- Fiesty Kitty...

Where do you think writers got the idea?

rosha267 21

That sounds so scary! FYL indeed

AnimalLover1031 8

For now on, just avoid joging through that area

Shrouds 14

No shit... I'm sure an encore was not on his to-do list.

AnimalLover1031 8

Never said it was buddy.

*From now on

CharresBarkrey 15

Your entire comment implies that you thought OP would go back...

You're lucky he didn't say" I like your lips boy, we're going to have fun with you"

8- Well, that escalated quickly.

Hey!! Now I know what to tell the Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses when they come knocking on my door!

Mmhmm you got a purdy mouth mmhmm

Were you walking on private property? I don't think anyone should even be pointing guns, how stupid, but you also shouldn't be walking on private property

I could understand the guns.. But there should be signs up. (not saying there wasn't.)

Hey at least he didn't plug you

Jordath_Fil 11

In what way? O.o
