Today, whilst at work, my dad decided to call me and sing an entire rendition of 'The Gambler' by Kenny Rogers. There was a big line of people, and my boss had been standing nearby checking out my phone. I had to stand there and listen to the whole song. FML

Um. No. You didn't have to listen to the whole thing. You should have hung up. YDI

"I'm sorry dad, I'm at work, I have to go." Polite and nonoffensive. Alternatively, just hang up. Is that so hard? You're at work, you have better things to do than to listen to someone sing, I'm sure your father would understand.

Am I the only one this doesn't make sense to??

No, it doesn't make sense to me either. What's the FML here? My mother calls me and sings, "You're my sunshine" all the time. I listen b/c it makes her happy (when skies are grey :)

Uh, maybe for most people, it's embarrassing as hell for your dad to make you sit through his rendition of a crap song when your boss and coworkers are around to hear it all? What's difficult to understand there?

Fuck no, the life of a Sith apprentice is long, arduous, and filled with evil megacorp speeches delivered in Canadian accents. You signed up for this shit when you were conceived. Blame Toxi for not using a condom.

*fwap* Silence, pe0n.

-.-" Careful, dear LaQuisha may see this thread and have a seizure.

yeah, it's embarrassing, but why wouldn't you hang up and turn off your phone?! I call bullshit on this. If it is true, ydi.

didn't make sense to me, either. the phrasing sucks.

no your NOT alone.....

agreed with one. ugh.

the gambler by kenny rogers? i don't think i've ever heard of it..

You gotta know when to hold em, know when to fold em know when to walk away, and know when to run You never count your money, when you're sittin at the table There'll be plenty of time for countin, when the dealin's done.

Seriously. You don't know who Kenny Rodgers is. Wow

I think it's fair to say the OP's dad killed Kenny.

Um. No. You didn't have to listen to the whole thing. You should have hung up. YDI

If he is at a call center, which is what his job is I'm assuming, he could get fired for hanging up on customers, even if it was someone they know.

This. I would have said, "Dad, Im busy, Ill call you on my break," and hung up

Hello? ..ad....orry... a... onnection... s... ad.. ello??.....ello?? *dial tone*

You answered your phone while serving customers? What the hell is wrong with you? I hope you got fired

this is what i was thinking

Poor poor OP! Having to answer the phone while there was a big line of people - certainly not an FML, definately a YDI. Ever heard of just doing your job?

You gotta know when to hold 'em, you gotta know when to fold 'em.
