Today, I found that windshield wipers on my car had been stolen. I bought a pair of new ones for around $10 but when I was trying to put them in place, I failed to hold a wiper holder and it slipped down on the windshield, causing cracks. Now I have to replace the windshield which will cost approximately $150. FML

Hi to all! I'M THE AUTHOR OF THIS FML :) Thanks for your votes and conversation! Some remarks: my car is Skoda Fabia (2002), windshield was Ok before this thing happened, and the windshield was cracked by the wiper holder (wiper arm), without a wiper itself. It of course didn't break into pieces - just the inferior layer of the glass got a "star" of cracks 10-15 cm each which are gradually growing :( P.S. In my country (Ukraine) average month salary is probably ~$250 and up to 1/3 of people live for half of that. P.P.S. I myself was surprised to see my wipers stolen as those old ones cost $3-4 max :) And I thought that steeling such things was left somewhere in 1990-s

My boyfriend stole my car, crashed it to my house, then killed my grand-uncle, then with the house crumbling down, my pets all died.

My boyfriend stole my Ph.D.

So true- I had a friend that lived in a somewhat bad neighborhood and he couldn't even have a porch light because people would steal the lightbulb. Damn druggies

I am sorry but YDI you should never let the metal part hang, keep it against the glass slowly or it will snap and break your window

One time a jackass stole my common sense. I had it locked in a safe too, but somehow it was missing in the morning.

auto-glass repair, auto-glass replace ?

and if you're fully comp, its usually free! :) btw, whats anti flood?

#6, Anti-flood is a device that some flood prone countries install beneath their doors, so as to stop any water from coming in! Some insurance companies do not pay out flood insurance if the 'anti-flood' device wasn't installed! Its still a fairly new concept, and there should be some coming in a store near you!

Fuck the commenting bug. #6 was someone that replied to #4, but it keeps jumping around.

Except OP wasn't a woman.

#19 that's quite rude. I am female and know more about cars, diagnosing problems in cars and fixing them then most of my male friends do.

I agree with #33. I worked in my dad's repair shop when I went to visit him in England every summer since I was ten. I know a whole lot about cars!!

And that's why you shouldn't attempt grammar.

Hey, sorry...what's wrong with my grammar? Maybe a little bit of a run-on in the eyes of some English teachers, but it was indeed grammatically correct. :)

Oh #51 I'm sorry!!! I'm so used to people making fun of me on here, I was automatically thinking you were talking to me! Sorry to seem so self-centered!!! :)

#6 anti-flood protection is when too many comments are "flooding" in at once for the app to handle.

Haha, Marinus :)

ah right thanks. lol @ #20!

37 you're pretty

never heard of a wiper arm able to cause cracks, fyl

me either a windshield is was to strong to crack with the hit of a wiper coming down

This is why you hire people to do things lien that.

Not everyone can afford to hire people to do every little thing for them. I replace my own wipers, change my own head/tail lights, change my own oil, and anything else that comes up that I can figure out on my own. I would rather spend my money on things I enjoy.

big deal hire someone to replace wipers !!?? WTF try and take it to the dealership they would look at you like a retard which you probably are

I was simply stating it in a way that if OP didn't know how replace the windshields correctly, to hire to someone to do it, or get someone they know to help them out, instead of doing it themselves, resulting in fail.

it so fucking easy, even a caveman can do it

very easy for wiper arms to break glass. that's a cheap windshield though

guckylynn 19

That's not cheap for a windshield? Its a normal amount to pay for a deductible.

In soviet russia, windshield wiper wipe you!

Sounds pretty fishy to me that a wiper could crack the windshield. Were you driving a Yugo or a Lada?
