Awww. And then at Christmas, you could pawn your heirloom pocket watch so you could buy her some ornate haircombs for her long beautiful hair, and meanwhile, she cuts and sells her hair to buy you a chain for your heirloom pocket watch - what a riot! Oh, Henry, the IRONY!!!

You ungrateful sod! 1) At least now you have the album 2) Your wife knows exactly what you like 3) Tell her the story of how you bid for that exact same album on eBay and you'll laugh about it.

actually ebay doesn't show the names of those who are also bidding on an item, it just says like for the username curryndricegirll it would be c***l or something like that, I havnt bid on anything in a while.

Actually, this is a really sweet story! His wife obviously knows him really well and it's hilarious she unknowingly outbid him for the album. I wonder about the credit card, though. I guess they don't share money as husband and wife? That's part of the story that's unclear to me.

I think you're all missing the major point here; she outbid him. With HIS credit card. So basically because she wanted it as a present for him, it cost him a lot more money.

yeah god-darn lucky to have enough money to buy Beatle collectibles!!! ughhh can i have it? xD i swear i'd die to meet them. i love them ever so. i'm pretty sure i'm one of the biggest fans in the world, with over 4 thousand sound files, and about 30 books (i'd have more but i'm poor), bunch of vinyls), and all their movies, plus hours of their rare video footage. i love seeing fellow beatle fans

don't complain. it seemed like she wasnt that great with the interweb business, but she had great intentions. it was a great thoughtful heartfelt gift. appreciate.

And if she got him nothing, he would be here whining about that. She was trying to do something nice. Quit crying, OP, you have a nice wife.

So how is this an FML? You got the album anyway. At least you didn't call her a jerk, right? Also, I would love to have that as a birthday present, so...

You don't understand. She bought the album using his credit card, therefore he paid for his own gift anyway. Also, he would have gotten it for a lot cheaper if she hadn't outbid him in the auction...

Yeah - so what? It should be "their" money anyway. This really isn't a big deal whatsoever, his life isn't "fucked." This is more of a funny coincidence.

The problem is that she way over-bidded on it, and then payed for it with his money. Any person with a little respect would not buy a present for someone using that persons money. That's just wrong! She is a jerk, FYL.

Why is everybody assuming because she used his credit card, he was paying for it? Maybe she plans on reimbursing him when the bill comes in. In many households, a couple shares a credit card account. You can have multiple users on one account.

Plus, I don't think it's that bad of an FML because it seems like you were ready to pay almost as much as she bid anyway...if anything, it's kind of cute. Don't whine.

be grateful, you have a wife that loves you and actually knows what you really want. I still cant figure out what to get my boyfriend for his birthday
