Language Misunderstanding Results In Accidental Breakup

We love nothing more than a good old fashioned language translation fail. Languages can be wildly confusing, and sometimes that goes on to inspire absolutely hilarious misunderstandings between people that would otherwise be getting along just fine. In this case though, we learn that this particular misunderstanding was the straw that broke the camel's back, and apparently this guy was a dang "side guy."

Sometimes You Have to Learn a Lesson the Spider-Man Way

Everyone, repeat after me: I am not Spiderman. I am not Spiderman. I am not Spiderman. 

Now, read this guy's TIFU story that ended up in too many injuries for one body and repeat it again. Although this is mostly some Amazon shop's fault for selling a faulty grappling hook, the guy probably could have chosen a better place to test it out for the first time. Lets hope he doesn't make the same mistake twice.
