She got what she deserved.

What’s the worst thing that could happen to someone who uses bad grammar?

A low grade on a paper?  A mocking post on this blog?  A scolding from a nearby grammarian?

Oh, it could be worse.  You could find yourself face to face with James Westfall and Dr. Kenneth Noisewater.

This is my new favorite entry on my new favorite Web site, fmylife.com:

Today, I was flirting via text with a coworker. Things started getting heated, and I wanted to send her a sexy picture. I asked if she had any suggestions. She said, “Your nuts!” She meant, “YOU’RE nuts.” I sent her a photo of my junk. I offended a co-worker with incriminating evidence. FML

Okay.  We know this guy isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed.  Anyone knows you don’t send naked pictures to someone you barely know.  And I’m going to assume that these two people are over the age of 18, because if not, that’s a different issue altogether.  Assuming they both are above the age of consent,

That girl got exactly what she deserved.

She mixed up “your” and “you’re” and thus was blinded with an image of the least attractive part of the male anatomy, an image that will likely stick in her mind for quite a long time.

It’s kind of like shock therapy, don’t you think?

(And, for the record, I feel like I need to say this to clueless straight guys of the world: No girl in her right mind will ever ask you for a picture of your nuts if she wants to be turned on.  ANY other body part is understandable — NEVER the nuts.  If she does, that’s a red flag.  She’ll probably be forwarding it to her friends and laughing at you.)

What do you think?  Did this girl get what she deserved?

  1. OH definitely. That will teach her :)

  2. This is a lesson to all of us. “You’re nuts” is a bad phrase to use.

    I’ve only known one girl to use the phrase at all, and, whenever she said it, I was always on cue with my response.

    “What about them?!”

    Guaranteed laughs.

  3. I think, it was just her expression at all. I mean, what she meant was (r u nuts?)? It’s just a lesson that we really have to be careful of the words we are using. Just a single letter missing or any punctuation marks missing or misuse..totally change the exact meaning. And perhaps, due to high technology nowadays people tend to be lazy. we tend to use shortcut messages..

  4. Oh, she got what she deserved. And I got a great laugh! Thanks!

  5. Guys seem generally eager to send off clothing-optional self-portraits, take great care when responding to such offers. They’re both morons.

    EXCELLENT movie pull, by the way!

  6. I don’t know if she got what she deserved, but I got a good laugh out of it!

  7. Ha!

  8. Absolutely hilarious. God, definitely a red flag. Plus, to send a picture of your nutsac to a co-worker? Get a clue dude.

    I certainly hope these two dopes work in a place that has no bearing on peoples’ livelihoods.

  9. Totally! I call people on that mistake all the time.

  10. FYI, Jane Kennedy Sutton, it’s a little spammy to put your link in the body of your comment as you have done in many places on this blog. If people want to find you, they will click on the hyperlink on your name.

  11. Absolutely! That’s too funny, thanks for sharing!

  12. Totally fake

  13. Yeah, he should have gotten clarification. And a clue. And a sense of reality. And a moral compass. And some class. That’s unbelievable.

  14. She got what she requested. He was merely following directions.

  15. HA! I hope it’s not fake. I like to imagine it happening. Plus I think people like this really do exist. Dang, that made my DAY!

  16. Considering they were texting, it’s quite hard to assume he would take that out of conext like that.

    I try to keep my punctuation/spelling/grammar correct when I text which means it takes way longer to do it.

    How about you? Are you as precise while texting (as you are writing normally)?

    Hooray! I can’t believe I just found you, Grammar Vandal! Your story makes me happy. I wish I had comma stickers! I’ve had “Eats, Shoots and Leaves” on my wishlist for a while.

    As to this blog post, I like fml because it makes fun of life so well! Like this. It’s great for grammar freaks (no offense, I use “freaks” merely to describe myself) and regular writers/typists/speakers alike.

  18. They’re both idiots! I HATE bad grammar with a passion.

    P.S. Have you seen mylifeisaverage.com? It’s the exact opposite and maybe just as funny if you think about it.

  19. Your and You’re are the worst. I am constantly seeing them mixed up on signs, papers….and in my own life. A slap on both sides, then.

  20. You say she got what she deserved, but it seems to me that if this story is true (unlikely), he’s the one who will get punished for her bad grammar. Sexual harassment suit, anyone?

  21. haha! cool site. . can’t keep me from laughing.. care to exchange links? :)

  22. I agree with Dan.
    About punctuation; have you read “Eats, shoots and leaves” by Lynne Truss?

  23. I don’t know if she deserved an eyeful of nads, but the guy surely has a pair, both literally and figuratively. And who knows, if she’s the right type of woman, maybe she thought it was funny enough to request an audience with James and the Doctor in person?

  24. My apologies – I never meant to offend anyone. It won’t happen again. I personally like folks to leave a signature line when they comment because it makes it easy for me to discover new blogs or websites. I now know not everyone feels this way and will stick to visiting blogs where I know I’m welcome.

  25. ok if u cnt t3ll w0t i mean by w0t i write then j00 is stupid. if you c4n t3ll w0t i mean thn w0t did my grammar or speeelng mattar? everyone knows a panda eats shoot and doesn’t posses a firearms permit. sorry your pet hate fails at mattering.
