Today, while I was working my shift at the store, my girlfriend appeared and asked to talk to me. Once we were alone, she burst into tears and started sobbing. Turns out someone's dad died in her favorite TV show and she wanted some comfort. FML

68, Yes but you should also have the common sense to separate reality from fiction. Stable people don't go visiting their boyfriends at work to seek support because a fictional character died. If you want to get upset over it, go ahead, but don't go dragging other people out of their jobs just to console you over it.

I'd politely tell you to go home and keep my eyes open for other signs of emotional instability.

Well i agree With that she seems a bit unstable and she Did overreact, but i completely understand why she was so sad.... She probably just went to her boyfriend to get it off her chest and he is her boyfriend, he is suppose to help her feel better, what ever the reason.

Why? If she was really interested in it, then she would be obviously sad. Btw F her life, OP. for having a boyfriend who instead of wanting to comfort her, writes it on FML. You don't deserve her.

thats true 30. I don't know why everyone is siding with OP. I mean sure this is a bit ridiculous, but OP owes it to his girlfriend to be a little more comforting. People get upset about silly things, and I'm sure OP has cried about something even more trivial throughout his life.

Why couldn't she wait til he was off work? Things like that get ppl fired. She seems like an idiot OP. I don't see how this is at all his fault. Besides who's to say he didn't comfort her. My bf would have told me to cut the crap, and it'd help me realize how silly I was being. Also, I don't do that

I know women can be an emotional mess, even the most head strong. But this is far too dependent. It'd be one thing to call you when you're not busy or even to bug you while with friends. But to drag you out of work because she can't understand the priority of that over a sad tv show has no excuse that doesn't involve therapy at some level.

Yeah lonkite101 your comments seem to have no rational basis at all. 26 is right. I'm sorry but there is no possible way that you, a 13 year old, has the life experience to back up comments like your generation comment. Just stop while you're ahead please. As evidenced by the bazillion thumbs down you've gotten, that's a sign to shut up.

I didn't cry at the end of Marley and Me. I bawled. Then I went bed, woke
up, and when I walked over to my TV and
saw the disc case for the movie I started sobbing again. Let it all out OP's girlfriend!

Marley and Me made my sister, my brother, and me cry all on separate occasions. Our dog now is almost 9 and is starting to climb up the stairs really slowly; not to mention that he fell down them once and got a seizure. It will be one of the saddest days in my house when our dog passes </3

I also cried in Revenge of the Sith when Obi-Won left Anakin in the lava :(

As #10 said, she should have found a better way to deal with it then bug her bf at work.

P.S. I see nothing wrong with crying because something really, really sad happened in a tv show or movie.


When the iron giant flies into the bomb at the end of the movie and says "superman", I cry. Every time.
I you don't understand this reference, watch the movie. It's a good one.


I've cried at the end of a few movies can't say I have for a tv show but regardless that's slightly ridiculous. Wait til he gets off of work or I don't know be a big girl and suck it up? After all it IS just a tv show. Just saying...


Really, #37? We "can't distinguish fantasy from reality"? Haha. Um, actually it's called enjoying something so much that you can't help but get emotional over it.

As you can see from my username I'm a huge Harry Potter fan. I'm also an emotional train wreck of a teenage girl when I reread the books or re-watch the movies. (The same goes for other books, like LOTR).

Just because we enjoy something doesn't mean we can't separate fiction from reality.
