Aug. 28, 2012 - PRLog -- Every summer, millions of Americans decide to spend their vacations at the beach. This is the top destination for 42% of them. Once arrived, vacationers expect to relax, have a delightful time and forget about work. Unfortunately, the reality is sometimes different. Many people have posted their vacation misfortunes on

Hanging out at the beach can be far from peaceful, especially if your friends are aspiring comedians:

“Today, my friend thought it would be funny to put a pretzel on my forehead while I was sleeping on the beach. I now have a pretzle-shaped tan line in the middle of my head. FML”

“Today, I went parasailing for the first time ever. My friends thought it would be funny to pull down my trunks right before my feet left the boat. I dangled there in the air for the whole resort to see. And I lost my shorts in the ocean. FML”

Sometimes, online pictures of the beach vzmkg differ from reality:

“Today, I arrived at the beach for a week's vacation. I walk on the beach only to find they are "rebuilding" it. They have heavy machinery all over the place, they work 24/7, and this only happens every 15 years. Glad I picked this week. FML”

Wearing a swimsuit at the beach reveals parts of the body usually hidden. Sometimes those parts should remain under clothes:

“Today, I went to the beach with my boyfriend and family. My sister coyly pointed out the scratch marks down his back, hoping to embarrass me in front of my parents. The marks weren't from me. FML”

Lifeguards are always on alert to protect us and be sure we are safe. They should take care of their own safety first:

“Today, while I was at the beach I decided to go into the ocean even though the waves looked rough. While I was in the water, I got caught by the riptide and needed to be saved. The reason I was at the beach? I'm a lifeguard. Now all my co-workers won't stop laughing at me. FML”

The beach is part of an ecosystem that belongs to animals, fish and wildlife. Humans are just guests:

“Today, I was at the beach and fell asleep in the sun. When I woke up, there was a blob of sunscreen on my leg. Thinking it was my boyfriend who was sweet enough to squeeze sunscreen for me, I rubbed it into my leg. After smelling my hands, I discovered it was bird poop. FML”

“Today, I thought I would make my first trip to the beach. While in the water, I was stung by a jellyfish. My friend had to pee on me. I went back into the water to wash the pee off and got stung by another jellyfish. FML”
