Today, I was at the gas station with my grandma. After I slid her card and began to pump, I convinced her that it was a lot easier and more convenient to pay at the pump with your credit card instead of paying inside. She yelled as I realized I went $20 over what she had to spend. FML

It is easier. Just have someone competent doing the pumping.

Sometimes people like you just need to realize that you're not always right and don't always know what's best for other people. Next time, do as your grandma asks and you won't have an FmL to write.

there is no point to this comment.

Convience vs garuntee.. I believe she won..

Spelling...you didn't even try...

O I see now.. Sorry everyone! Next time I'll get a dictionary instead of autocorrect.. But do you not see the typo in the FML...

I don't know about you guys, but I thought this conversation was going a completely different direction when I first skimmed it and saw "I slid it and and began to pump".

What are you talking about, lilhellian? Autocorrect is not to blame for your post...just had to rush to be almost first, didn't ya?

It's also apparently a lot more expensive to do.. At least when your grandson has ADD

hey! its not our fault we like shiney things! they are pretty and deserve our blip of attention until we see another shiney!

Ah good catch my bad, granddaughter

Its going to be a lot more expensive when you realize that someone spent 2000 dollars using your credit card. I never trust those machines all those new ways to make a duplicate of my card, I'll stick with cash.

if someone overcharged your card by 100x what you spent, you would probably emd up rolling in money from suing their asses off. that is identity theft and its very illegal, and the chance of someone you paid with a card stealing the number and spending your money is astronomically low. at least not without you being reimbursed. cards have anti fraud safety nets set up as well. your fear is illogical.

Good job -__-

Is your emoticon supposed to be a deformed pig? or is it a double Hitler mustache? I'm confused.

It's a face....

Definitely Hitler 'stache.

You're all wrong. It's Psy.

Or next time, he could watch how much he's pumping and pay attention, then he would have been right.

Exactly, 14. Because he is right, it's a lot easier.

Or put a limit on how much you want to spend so you cant pump too much.

FY grandmas life.

No problem. She can always dig through dumpsters for food until the next Social Security check arrives. She'll be amazed by the high quality of the food that people put to waste. After that, it's Cash Only. Of course, if she sees the vast financial upside of dumpster-diving, she'll have tons of money to blow on pretty baubles for you!

My grandma would have tried to get her money back lol she's cheap

Cheap or frugal? Most grandparents don't have lavish incomes to live off of. They have to spend their money wisely. And OP should def pay the diff for the fk up.

Wow, you had to pay more because you didn't pay attention. Thats the ultimate wordplay.
