Today, I was going out to my car with my sister's birthday present. I slipped on some ice and the present fell to the ground. I spent an hour wrapping it. I could hear the present break. I had gotten her $200 wine glasses. I then had to run to the nearest store and get her a CD instead. FML
I agree, your life sucks 30 466
You deserved it 3 360

GymnasticsQueen tells us more.

Ok, first of all you don't know me so you have no right to criticize me. You don't know how much pain I am in. I twisted my wrist when I fell. I am really good at gymnastics so don't say ANYTHING about that, but now I can't go to practice until my wrist is better. I was putting her present in the passenger seat, I wouldn't get out on the passenger side if I was driving so I had no way to know there was ice there. I'm not rich and neither is the rest of my family. My sister has been wanting these wine glasses since the Christmas of 2008. I couldn't find them anywhere. I have money set aside for gifts and things like that so I don't have to worry about making sure I have enough money; I have been setting money aside like that since I was 16.

It also does no good to judge so hard when they are posting here. Obviously she already had a bad day

Was the CD Hannah Montanna or the Pokemon Theme?

And actually WhatANoob I gave her a Black Eyed Peas cd. If I couldn't give her the wine glasses at least I could give her a cd she would like.

You should've given her the broken glasses. Lol jk

OP, what happened when you gave her the CD?

Comment moderated for rule-breaking.

Show it anyway

(Unless you accidentally put whine.. I laughed anyway.) Would you like some cheese with that whine? Hmm?

5 just got the OP with a classic.

I can understand taking an hour to wrap. I usually make an excessive bow out of ribbon that is different widths, and sometimes cut out one of the pictures that is on the wrapping paper or a photo of the person, stick it on cardboard, and make a paper spring out of the same wrapping paper and attach that to the middle of the ribbon.

lol ..you have too much time on tour hands

FYL. Seriously

maybe you could of told her what happened? it's the thought that counts so she should appreciate that at least...

Who spends 200 dollars on wine glasses? What were they, crystal stemware? No one uses crystal stemware.

My parents have wine glasses worth £40 a glass. And they weren't nearly the most expensive ones in the shop.

I love crass generalizations. I can't speak for the rest of "no one" out there, but I use my stemware regularly. why? Because it's nice.

My family has an entire cabinet of crystal dishes and stuff received as gifts before I was even born. We never use them, but they’re still gorgeous.

SO... It takes like 5 minutes to wrap a present, 10 if you are going crazy or if it a particularly unweildy shape, which I assume, as a box of wine glasses, this present was not... So you failed before you even got outside. And apparently you value yourself more than $200, since presumably you dropped the gift presumably to break your own fall. You know a lot of people break arms trying to stop themselves from falling. Really, it's not a bad thing to value your life more than an inanimate object, but it seems you have a problem with it. Of course you should have held on to the box while you fell, possible cracking your head and lying in ice for hours until some neighbor happens to spot you... Cuz at least you would still be able to give your sister her present! So why don't you be thankful that you didn't get hurt and give your sister a heartfelt apology, a hug, and an IOU instead of a cheap last minute replacement?

I hope you're kidding. You don't have time to think over your priorities while you're falling in cold weather.

I don't know what hurts worse...the fall or the wasted money.

I've told you 900 times - stop exaggerating!

Nice. What were they? Riedel? I wish my siblings got me such nice gifts ;)

I'm to tired to comment.

You technically did comment. And quite frankly, no one cares if you comment or not.
