Today, I finally bought the expensive but beautifully stylish dress I've been eyeing for ages online. Ten minutes later, I went back to check the shoes the model was wearing so I could coordinate my outfit. The dress had been reduced to half price. FML

I don't see why that's an issue

Well then you aren't very clever are you

She already paid full price ten minutes before it went on sale for half price. How is that NOT an issue?

Uhhh maybe its because she spent more when she could of spent less.. Yeah I don't see why that's an issue either.

#1, I advise (for the greater good of mankind) that you remove yourself from gene pool of **** sapien sapiens.

Do people even bother reading the FML? Here's one who doesn't understand why its an Fml and there's another one who failed to comprehend that she was online shopping, oh dear lord

It's not gunna ship within 10 minutes. OP can cancel the order and repurchase it

I was thinking the same thing. Can you not return it for the price you bought it for then buy it again at half price?

#1 your kidding right? Do you not understand anything at all? #36 if she returns it they will give her back whatever its worth.. So it would be pointless

#42- YOU'RE kidding, right? Please explain the logic wherein you've decided she wouldn't receive a full refund if she decided to cancel the order.

It is not an issue! She can return the dress and buy it back for the reduced price!

52- the issue here is not the dress. The issue here is the STUPIDITY of some people.

#16- why are you people so ******* hateful? You disliked his comment, but when someone else said the same exact thing you like it? Damn.

#9 - it's "could HAVE"...."she could have spent less"

Aw, how depressing! I hate it when that happens. Sorry, OP.

#25 she means she can make it herself for the cost of the fabric. It's really not that difficult to understand.

Thank you for clearing that up. Also, thank you everyone for thumbing me down

Return it and buy it agian. Ive done stuff like that. It works

Or if that doesn't work consider returning and re-buying

You can also talk to the store manager. Most places have a 14 day price guarantee. Some places the time frame is shorter, but regardless, if it's in the span of 10 minutes, I don't see how they can't fix it. If the store manager doesn't do it for you, call the head office. As someone who works retail, I know that you can somehow get that money back.

26- she bought it online, there isn't a store manager. She can contact the company though

She can go to the nearest store, which sounds like it was where she bought her shoes. Managers can still help with online orders or refer to the customer service department of the head office.

Yeah, right? I was gonna say. Unless you went back days later, you could just cancel and reorder. Durr-hurr.

Maybe you can call and get the extra money back? Most places have some kind of policy about that.

makes u wish you'd have been caught by a train huh?

Caught by a train? Do you mean hit by a train or...?

i think he meant caught by a train as in having to wait for a train to cross on her way to the store in hopes of delaying another 10 minutes. but that doesn't really apply when you're online shopping.

My computer was hit by a train the other day. Delayed me in purchasing my Snuggie. Damn trains...

if it was a Pentium 4 computer, it should have been fine!!!

You could just sell it when you get it or better yet just cancel the order

Good things come to those who wait...

i dont understand y ppl would thumb this down its completly true. patience is a virtue

if good things come to those who wait, procrastination is a virtue too!

She had been waiting ... "for ages," she wrote.

cancel order and reorder for the half price?

don't know why op didn't so this in the first place

Lots of cat pictures on this one...

Oh wow, can't you predict the future? Come on, OP! I thought that was a common skill! Okay okay, take the easy way out and do the cancel -> re-order-thing. I still think it'd be WAY cooler if you learned to predict the future!

One does not simply 'learn to predict the future'...
