Today, whilst babysitting, I broke a glass. I explained to the kid that it was very important not to walk barefoot around where it had happened, because of the tiny bits of glass. He jumped back, scared, and while doing so tripped. I rushed to help him and ran through the broken glass. Barefoot. FML

Do as I say, not as I do

How could she possibly deserve this? She was bring a responsible baby sitter by ensuring the kids safety, nothing wrong with that. And this is totally plausible, I don't see how it could HAVE been faked.

YDI for saying whilst i mean who says that???

I do. It's called having a vocabulary. It's likely OP likes to write. Most people I know who use "whilst" are writers (in some form). Ahhh that is one reason why I never go around barefoot. I always have some sort of footwear on. Good for you for going to help the kid, but FYL for doing it without thinking, haha, ouch.

People smarter than you.

FYL :( Irony? You broke it - you were punished for it

Umm.. What's the difference of 'whilst' and 'while', as I would have probably used instead? Is it the grammar or something? it would be nice if I got an answer, thank you. Greetings from over seas - Norway... :)

Smooth move, x-lax.

I hope you didn't curse in front of the kid.

That really wouldn't of made it worse, whatsoever.

Great, why weren't you wearing sandals while telling him not to walk barefoot.

because no one wears sandals anymore >:U

What's with all the FMLs using the word 'whilst'? It's becoming the new 'proceed/proceeded'. O.o

We should make an 'average fml'! Here, I'll try... Today, I was trying to impress my girlfriend, so I proceeded to come home early. An officer pulled me over and didn't like my flirting, and then I lost my key, but I got in, and my dad was cheating with my girl friend. I'm 17, my girlfriend is my age. FML

Did you hurt yourself?

#12 is right, props to the OP for being quite motherly

"whilst"? hate to be a grammar nazi but, really?

'Whilst' is absolutely correct, what's your point?

yep,, its a 100% correct word,, its just more commonly used in Britain than in America

1) Whilst is a word and could be correct in this sentance 2) just kidding, my second point is invalid

3) You spelled "sentence" wrong :)

4) lol OP: fyl :(
