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

MitchellSully tells us more.

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.

Return the new equipment you bought?

Carry oxygen next time you climb. You can't afford to lose the braincells.

and this is am fml how? so you made a mistake you're lucky it was there after six months.

I'm with you on this one now you can either return the new equipment, since you didn't use it. Or sell it on ebay or something.

Yeah, I think you should have called. I mean if I lost $600 of equipment, I'd think of everywhere I used it and call.

Return the new equipment you bought?

agreed, what is the big deal? its not that hard to return stuff and if they won't take it back, turn around and sell it to someone else

Why was calling the climbing place not the first thing you did? Sorry, but I have to go with YDI on this one.

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...

ok I missed the first part. ok so you found yours go return the new stuff. easy fix

well at least you have two sets now

Use your older ones & sell the newer ones which you bought for a cheaper price then what you bought them for.

YDI?! If you lose expensive equipment you should maybe just go and look for it instead of just buying new equipment...

Why does it seem like the answer to so many FMLs is "go back to the store and return it"?

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.

you cant return everything you buy, but you wouldn't know anything about climbing would you fatty

#22- Really?

When you lose something, wouldn't the first thing you'd do be to go look in the last place you had it??
