Today, while taking pictures by the pool, my friend wanted to use my camera. I told her to put the wrist strap on so it wouldn't fall into the pool. She dropped the camera while trying to put the strap on. FML

Actually, this FML exactly exemplifies a dictionary definition of irony, seeing as the thing meant to prevent the dropping of the camera is the very thing that caused it.

I stopped reading there and knew what was going to happen. YDI, get better friends. :P

"While taking pictures by the pool, my friend..."

Either the OP needs a lesson in the English language, or the friend was taking pictures by the pool when she asked the OP for her camera.

#56, it makes sense... The OP was using her(?) camera to take photos by the pool, then a friend asked to borrow it so she could take some, too. I don't see what you thought was wrong. :S

I'm 24 and they taught me that. I wonder if anyone pats attention to that anymore tho :( Plus I went to a pretty decent school. At least, MN's schools were still decent when I was there... No child left behind and all that crap was before my time

Because of you, I now hover over "pedantic" for a full 5 minutes, convincing myself it's misspelled, and it should, in fact, be "pendatic". DAMN YOU, you ruined my mind! *shakes fist*

You're all leaving out the most obvious clue: OP is a girl with access to the internet, who was taking pictures by a pool.

Considering the likelihood that these were bikini pics intended for facebook, they'd want pictures of *themselves* on their own respective cameras. Logic dictates that OP had her friend's camera, and the friend had hers. Disclaimer: This is obviously assuming there were no public bathroom mirrors nearby, but that's just a given-- we're all on FML, so of course we know that's always the preferred setting for scantily-clad internet "portraits."

Grammar nazi! "while taking pictures by the pool is a participial phrase. The noun that follows must be the one being described. "my friend" wasn't taking pictures by the pool when he decided that he wanted to use op's camera.
