Today, I was expecting a card from my husband stationed in Japan, but he mailed it to my mom. Since I'm busy and don't see her much, she tried to help by mailing it to me. It's long overdue, and the post office never got it. The card came from Japan, only to get lost traveling from 30 minutes away. FML

Hi guys, I'm the author of this FML. To clarify I am not lazy or too busy for my mom. I work 10 hour night shifts and go to school. My mom is very sweet and was trying to help me out so I wouldn't have to make a special trip during my work week, and because she knew how excited I was for the card. My husband works 60 hour weeks so he probably didn't think about it. Thank you for the all the kind comments, many of you are very kind.

If the office never got it, maybe your mom still has it somewhere? Anyways, I'm sorry OP, that sucks

I think #4 feels that this FML could've phrased it with a little better build up and punch line. Some FMLs are just very hilariously written, but this one's alright *shrug*

So fuck her life cause she didn't receive a letter? Lmao, why the fuck is everyone so insanely sensitive? Get the fuck over it.

#62, you're a 16-year old kid. You don't know what it feels like to get a letter from someone stationed abroad, especially when it's someone you love. Granted, I don't know and I'm only 13, but I still sympathize. It'd be like getting a Skype from someone abroad, but more romantic. Besides, she waited long for it only to be lost. It'd could've contained important info. Maybe he was coming back sooner than expected or later. The letter could've contained anything; souvenirs, something personal, but the point is, the letter was important to OP. It may not be important to you, but it was sentimentally valuable to OP.

My husband almost didn't receive the laptop i sent him. The only reason he got it was because he pointed it out to the office staff. They had it in the "undeliverable" bin.
