Today, whilst vacuuming, I stupidly decided to vacuum the bathroom drain to see what would happen. Turns out it will cause stinking septic water to get sucked into the machine and spew all over the walls, ceiling and vanity. It also causes the vacuum cleaner to stop working. FML

I think you need an adult

what the **** did you expect? a leprechaun to come out with his gold?


I think you need an adult


Did no one get that reference? It's from DBZ Abridged and is a hilarious series.

Looks like OP forgot how to adult

I think it would be more commonly know from family guy.

Or at least an adult who knows how to adult.

OP, don't play with adult toys, especially without supervision. If you thought your drain really needed cleaning, there are multiple ways that do NOT involve disabling your vacuum, and I'm sure a quick google search could've told you that.

OP needed an adultier adult.

27 I did. I read it in Krillins voice lol.

What did you think was going to happen? Maybe a cool didgeridoo noise? Fuck your in Aussie, all sorts of snakes and spiders could be lurking down under them drains!

Probably expected hair to come out and leave the drain all shiny and clean.

'In Aussie'? No, just no.

No kidding, you dumbass

It's a drain! What the Hell did you expect to happen?

Are you over 18 OP? If so, you officially failed adulting.

Shit, if going to bed one night at the age 17 and waking up the next morning as an 18-year-old is supposed to somehow magically make you an adult, then I'm ******. That whole process completely bypassed me. I guess I'm screwed for the rest of my life because I have no other opportunitues to become a mature adult.

35, I'm pretty sure even most 17 year-olds know not to vacuum a bathroom drain.

^That wasn't my point at all. Mine was that just by turning 18 you don't magically become an adult. Off-topic, sorry. I grew up with cleaning ladies and had never touched a vacuum cleaner until I got my first job. I'd never think of sticking the hose in the pipe lol.

Actually you do magically become an adult. You don't, however, become a RESPONSIBLE adult.

When you're late on an fml post but you want to show people your thoughts like I just did

Legally. Yes. But I'm in my early 20s and I still haven't figured out the process of adulting lol

There's being bored, and then there's not thinking. Good luck with the cleaning OP, rather you than me!

That was a crap decision which put you in a shitty situation

I don't know what you do in your showers. But if poop is in your shower drain, you are doing something wrong.

Yeah, what the heck? It isn't like all drains go the same place or anything.

#36, re-read the FML, says septic. Your toilet, shower just about every drain in your house goes to the septic tank. So yes, there would be shit.

No it says bathroom

Good luck cleaning that up

There are some bad decisions. And then there's just plain stupid. OP successfully managed to make them both

Think before you act. You clearly deserves that!

There are no FML's with this one, only YDI's

At least you admitted it was a stupid idea. That's more than most people will do.
