Today, I wanted to prove to my dad that I can drive, so that he'd let me use his car in future. Let's just say I helped him remove the fence that he was planning to repair. FML

OP here. Just to clarify it was a small fence(with decorative purposes), that you put next to flowers. Since the car is an SUV, I didn't see it. I didn't know it was there, because my dad took it from it's original place and put it on the grass.

#39, I have driven a large SUV. And a big full-sized van. And if you can't see behind you, you HAVE to look before you get into it. That's just part of driving. If you don't check? You'll hit a fence...or a dog...or a kid. NEVER back up if you can't see what you are backing into, ever ever ever ever. EVER. Take the extra five seconds before getting into it so that you can look. If you get into it and realize you can't see behind you? You put it in park, get out, and take a quick look. The OP learned a lesson about responsible driving and all he hit was a small fence...he should count his blessings. I'm just glad it was a fence and not someone's dog napping in the yard.


Good luck gaining his trust back OP, you have my condolences.

hey at least he knows your good at something!

Except that something would be demolishing fences

Demolishing fences is still pretty useful. I hear that Ash Ketchum has been looking for a qualified fence demolisher for a while.

Might as well have been driving a wrecking ball.

Just.... wait.... what? How the hell does this even happen???? Personal opinion you should think about using public transportation from now on

Ouch be more careful in the future. If you have a future with the car that is…

Eh. I hope he can take the good with the bad.

Things took a turn for the worse, though.

And then things took a turn for the fence.

Hey, you hit two birds with one stone! Not only did you show that you can be useful driving, but now you've also given him the opportunity to get a newer fence. He'll thank you one day! Maybe..

Please practice before you get a license for the safety of the pedestrians

In one of my replies I explained the situation how it happened. I try to pay attention and drive safely. I always hated douchebag drivers. Hope you understand :)

He did you a favor so you paid it forward

I think you've got it backwards, friend.

Wow. It's really not that hard. Probably played too many driving video games. Just gotta take it slow man.

First time driving learning on an SUV makes more sense. That's reasonable. Haha. I'm sorry. Rough day. Hope your dad isn't too pissed.

Because moving your thumbs to play a video game is the same as having your entire body drive a car. Thanks for enlightening me.

Actually GTA IV helped me learn how to drive.

The grammar in this FML is killing me.

OP's from Romania. Give them a break.

You just saved a ton of money! He should thank you.
