Today, I bought $300 worth of climbing equipment because I had lost mine six months ago, I hadn't gone to the climbing gym since I'd lost it. I went today because I was so excited to go climbing again. However, it turns out that I'd left my gear there, and it had been in the Lost and Found for the past six months. FML

You can't return allot of climbing equipment, it's against safety regulations because the gear is so fine tuned to make sure that it can hold even 8000lbs. The only gear that I had bought that I could return was the shoes and the chalk bag, but I still couldn't do that because I filled the bag with chalk and wore the shoes already. I didn't find my gear until I was done climbing for the night.

that's totally something I would do... but more of a d'oh! than an fml! return the new equipment, use the old and thank god your $300 is back in your account...

Maybe because there are so many FMLs where the OP is whining about an easily fixable problem that isn't worth declaring one's life fucked over.

"Go back to the store and return it" could be one of many proper responses to someone fishing for sympathy when none is needed.
