Not your fault

By Steve - This FML is from back in 2012 but it's good stuff - Canada - Ottawa

Today, I had to explain to a customer how our hotel charged his card, even though he has never stayed with us. Apparently his wife is a regular customer. I can't help but feel like a homewrecker. FML

That's a terrible thing to have to tell someone. Almost as horrible to have it actually happen to you.

damnn . was it the guy that went to the library?

I feel bad you had to be the one to tell him. It's not easy to tell someone that their partner is cheating on them. And using their credit card. I must say the wife sounds like an idiot. "I'll use my has bands card to cheat on him so I don't have to pay." I guess she forgot about the statements.

That really does suck for you, OP. I can only imagine what the guy did after he found out it was his wife. :/ Ps.Faelwyn- I love your name! I just said it outloud and laughed :)

This was the best comment. I'm dying of laughter.

Damn, that must have been a tough conversation. Eh, it isn't your fault OP

O.o dundundunnnn. Hmm, well FMLers, since we have nothing better to do, shall we create a Soap Opera about this? Or leave it as is.

Create a soap opera, make a bunch of money off of it, and pay OP back some of the money

Rocker_chick: I liked your comment until you said "pay OP back some of the money."

How about the guy OP had to break the news to?

His wife isn't very good at covering her tracks. At least he knows now. I'm sorry you had to be the bearer of bad news though.

I don't know what would be more upsetting; the fact that I married a cheater, or the fact that I married one of the stupidest cheaters there is.

She MUST have wanted to get caught. Even if only subconsciously. I mean, right? No one could be THAT stupid, could they? Ugh, I guess people really ARE that stupid.

Seriously, people are stupid now days. Use cash, no money trail. Sorry op, least youcan put her to the curb where she belongs.

The OP wasn't the one with the stupid wife, he was just the one who told the husband

His wife is a hoe, how are you a home wrecker?

6- not trying to be rude or anything, but I was scrolling down and accidentally clicked on your profile pic, and I gotta say it kina creeped me out haha

How many times until they figure out don't get married unless u can keep your vows. Or at least learn to only pay for motels in cold hard cash.

7- I personally like paying for my hotels with soft, warm cash.

Actually, for record keeping purposes, it's supposed to be illegal to rent a hotel room by paying in cash. Supposed to be credit or debit so that your information will be stores.... I think?

well is the card only inhis name? or is her name also on it? cuz if her names no on it you shouldt accapt it either way, shes not too bright, or she wanted to get caught suck to be the bearer of bad news op

Holy crap. Where are the grammar Nazi's when you need them?

Usually I'm pretty good at deciphering things written horribly like this. However, this comment escapes me...

8 says that if the wife's name isn't on the credit card, the hotel shouldn't have accepted the card in the first place. And that she (the wife) is either dumber than a rock or she wanted to get caught. And then 8 says it sucks OP had to break the news to this guy. You're welcome :)

Credit cards don't always have to be in the name of the person that owns it, the card holder can authorize a second person to use the card without it bring in their name.

This is very true. I give my card to my friend and my brother all the time, I tell them just sign my name and it always works.

twisted_cherub 14

Card companies don't care. Anyone can sign the slip with any signature. They don't have time to look at each and every signature of the millions of receipts they get every day. Unless the cardholder calls them to dispute a charge, that receipt just stays filed away. That's why you should be careful with cards and always check statements. If the man's wife isn't authorized to use the card he can press charges, but if it was a debit card and her name is on the account (not to mention he told her the PIN) he's SOL.

50- they're grammar nazis, not miracle workers

2 words. Online Payment !!!!! I'm particular about spelling...but screw this. lost cause. :/

Hey, 63, can I be your friend too?

Michael_92 20

@82 Sure but it takes a while to get access to the card lol

It's better that you told him then instead of him finding out later and possibly suffering from debt due to a very high credit card bill ... The wife deserved to be busted anyway

It's not your fault, your just doing your job

Aaaw, that sucks ! Hey but look on the bright side, at least he knows , and he will thank you. Not so sure about the wife though.
