Today, I decided to hang my $200 cocktail dress outside for faster drying after hand washing it. I learned that it dries much faster when torn into several pieces, courtesy a stray dog that randomly appeared at my house. FML

OP here. I made an account just to respond to you guys! I live in the country, so I figured making a small clothes line for just my dress wouldn't be a problem.I guess it was just bad timing.The dog was an abandoned pet that was malnourished. Im a shelter volunteer, so we took him to a good home. :)

Was it red? Flapping in the wind, like a matador flag?

I have a dark sense of humor but that's a little much

3- Get your animals right. The_Basileus is clearly a silly cat, not a silly goose!

12- Dogs aren't colorblind in the sense that they see everything in black and white. They just can't see all of the colors that people are capable of seeing. Plus, the color of the dress wouldn't stop the dog from being able to see the movement of the it with the wind blowing

Bulls don't respond to red either. They attack because of the movement and the color is for show.

I hope you didn't need it anytime really soon. It's really terrible that $200 was just torn up by a stray but hopefully you can get another one.

Next time, Rent the Runway. $30 will get you a designer dress and you just mail it back after you wear it, no washing required.

I actually just used it for an event, so luckily that was out of the way. Next time around, I'll either rent one or send my new one to the dry cleaners. Lol. Or just hang it up inside.

If only the dress was like a dollar and you could put it back together and sell it for $200

I probably would laugh then break down in tears if that happened to me

My rule of thumb is to not let anything too valuable out of my sight for too long.

Don't think you can fool us by pretending to be a dog when your name clearly says you're a cow!
