Today, I spent over $2,000 on a big flatscreen TV. My dad insisted I let him mount it on the wall instead of paying someone to do it. All seemed fine, until the TV came loose and smashed onto the floor. My dad refuses to accept responsibility, and says I should've had a professional install it instead. FML

I'd have to say you deserved it on that one. $2000 is a lot of money to chance losing if it's not mounted right.

Hopefully OP got some sort of warranty on it.

Not sure that a warranty would cover damage that was the customer's fault. But it would be nice.

warrant prolly wont cover it. rule of thumb is to buy insurance on anything 1000 and over.

@1 - Yep, parents are always right. I can't wait for a visit from Santa Claus, to grow big and strong from eating vegetables all my life, and to never find somebody who loves me as much as my mother!

Yeah this is why I never let my dad help me with things, that and he hated me with a passion.

I think you need to do some more reading on comments you reply to...

12 what are you talking about, they stated the dad insisted! So your reply is to just say f it and act like that point wasn't there.

They are never wrong either. ("Noooo, I've never said that!")

Well your dad's an ass

and should replace the tv

he must replace the TV

Him replacing it is what caused this fml to happen.

I think you need to read the fml again..

#19 *fuck *off

Sorry op, try to convince your dad to pay at least half

Actually, OP should the insurance company. sometimes they Will cover stuff like that. GO OP

So I'm guessing he doesn't wanna pay for it.

Yeah, it says it in the story ^?

I can never understand why parents can't accept humility in front of their children!

I think it is an unwritten rule that parents can't be wrong.

it think its in parents genes..

Ur dad doesn't seem to bright.

You're not exactly giving off the best impression, either.

You don't seem too bright.

At least he isn't giving off the impression of a bitch. Oops, was I being too judgemental like you were?

Your father seems a bit immature. He should acknowledge his error and at least contribute to a replacement!

. . . Replacement.

my dearest condolences to you my friend

On my screen, it appears as though the final word of my original comment is not there. :/

Hope you're insurance covers it.

i hope you write your comment properly next time

46: You forgot a full stop.

That really...really... sucks. Is he at least gonna try to pay some of it back?

He's paying you back, right..?

Would OP have posted this FML if his dad was paying him back?.. I think not.

I think it's highly implied that he isn't paying.

It was more of wishful thinking, but everyone on here is always so serious, good lord.
