You tried, yay!

Today, I was late to a lecture when I tripped up the stairs. With a few hundred people already staring and laughing at me, I started to curtsy to my "adoring fans" but instead fell backwards down the massive flight of stairs. FML

That moment when you try to play things off but make it worse


Nah, just trying to make the best of a bad situation.

that would probably happen to me. it generally does when i try to be funny :/

This would have been a better comment had it read "Go home OP, you're drunk."

OP just wanted to cancel out the upwards fall, then it could be like it never happened.

Normally, all the world is a stage. I guess this time it was comedy central.

The only thing that could make it better for me is if you knocked a few other people over when you fell down the stairs. Hope you're ok though!

43, more like America's Funniest Home Videos.

I hope someone at least got it on to you tube.

Excellent point 62. Maybe then they could get $10,000 out of the deal

Sorry 3 I meant to thumb you up! Lets say you're at 43 instead of 41

Sorry, but the smoke in your pic makes it look like you're orally pleasuring someone.

I actually thought that at first too.

Did you have a nice trip? How was your fall?;)

20 - Bullshit. Illuminati approved of this pun.

It's *have a nice trip see you in the fall*.

It can also be "Have a nice trip, see you next fall." There's more than one way to skin a cat!

Skin a cat? I know he was ding dong ditching you, but that's a bit harsh!

Don't forget that this could be the same cat that jumped on OP's lap and farted in her face. I'd say it's pushing its luck on not getting skinned these days.

Well at least you don't seem to have injuries like a broken arm. But seriously what luck you have. The stairs owned you, TWICE!

They obviously didn't respect the gravity of the situation.

Oh gravity, thou art a heartless bitch

Ydi -_- "Adoring fans"? No. They are laughing at you for being a failure.

OP was jokingly curtsying to try and play it off like it was an act, referring to the people laughing at him as his "adoring fans". Hence the quotation marks. And there's no need to call OP a failure for tripping on the stairs twice...

"FML's: 0 out 28 submitted" Fail

And we're laughing at you for the same thing.

I tried as hard as I could but honestly could not discover or figure out one half of a way that this person could have deserved this.

Who wouldn't try to play off such a fail, and also, it is very hard to make it to every lecture on time in college.

Oh my goodness i hope your not too hurt !!!

I hope you got a standing O for that performance and encore. Most people would bow their head in embarrassment. Good for you that you didn't. Oh and I'm glad that you're OK.
