Today, my future father-in-law, a respectable New England gentleman, bought me an $8,000 viola and bow for our engagement. I was so surprised that I spit a glass of wine from a 60 year old bottle all over his custom-tailored suit. He was not happy. FML

Wow, I can't believe all the bitchy, whiny people. So what if his fiancee's family seems loaded? That seems to be the point. He's trying to fit in and he made a huge social gaffe. I get the feeling he's a bit overwhelmed and awed by the sudden shift in social status (hence, mentioning the money) and now he's completely embarrassed. Your snide comments only show your envy and pettiness, methinks.

OP, that blows. I've had similar issues. My best friend's family is way above mine in social standing; we're 5 generations blue collar and his family errs on the white collar side. I've done some things I didn't realize were rude and he had to correct me later. Luckily, his mom and stepdad are understanding.

People seem to forget the relativity of FMLs. This is an FML for him, even if others believe it's only his whining. He was surprised and acted reflexively. It's not like he intentionally did something stupid.
