FML - The follow-up

Today, I discovered that there is nothing wrong with our snowblower. I live in Alaska and for the last 10 years I have been shoveling our long steep driveway because I thought the snowblower was broken. Reality? My mother has "never been able to get it out of the shed." FML

dazean Say more :
In response to why didn't you buy/check/fix it yourself? Answer: I was saving for college, and know nothing about engines. I remembered that it had been broken before, and assumed she didn't have the money to have it fixed- as we were broke most of the time and could barely afford basic necessities.

That's when you know it's time to move to California and relish the snow free living. If you weren't in shape 10 years ago all that shoveling should have done the job so you're... WINNING

Op could've bought a new one, or a used one off Craigslist. Before all you people start screaming "They're expensive," us Alaskans get money every year basically RIGHT before the snow falls or a week after. He very well could've got another one.

To the people who say "ydi just buy one", if op is still living at home he may have just finally got a job and mentioned buying one, and that's when he found out it was actually functional.

No it's just the pronunciation. If you were to say "lol" aloud it would sound like LAWL. Despite the fact most people recognize it as an acronym and either steer clear of using it in real life,or say l-o-l.

189, we'd kill for anything that is wet and falls from the sky right about now. Couple of inches of snow would give us a grass fire break at least. Texas has been horrible lately.

If you thought it was broken for 10 years, didn't it ever occur to you to try and buy a new one? Or demand that your mother buy a new one? I mean come on. It's been 10 years. Seriously.

She isn't necessarily saying that. The fact of the matter is, why wouldn't OP ask about getting a new one, (which you can save up for in ten years) or ask if it's broken. The OP /thought/ it was broken. He could have just asked if it was.
