Today, it was my dad's retirement. He is traditional Japanese, so I had custom-ordered a samurai sword from a traditional Japanese blacksmith with dad's name engraved on the blade in kanji script. He loved it, right up til my drunk cousin tried to use it to cut down a tree and snapped it in two. FML

Maybe you should swing the cousin at a tree and see if he breaks..? Seriously though, make him repay you, and then some.

sounds like your cousin needs a sword to the face. sorry OP :( at least your dad loved his gift

well its the thought that counts. at least you got it.

Honestly that's a really amazing and thoughtful gift, OP.

Hey your dad loved it for the short time it existed. Be glad he accepted it. P.S. I'd make your cousin buy a new one for your dad.

do you think his dad made his cousin commit sepuku?

using the broken sword

this was honestly going to be my suggestion. I want to know what kind of tree it was though, snapping an authentic japanese folded katana sounds pretty far-fetched. dull the fuck out of the blade sure, but not snapping it.

That sucks. But on the bright side no one was hurt, and your dad appreciated the gift.

You can't extort a dead person.

#30 your picture perfectly describes your comment XD

a little too well 41...

I'm not saying he should kill his cousin, I'm just saying his cousin needs to be hit in the face with a chair a few times for being an utter dumbass.

And the cousin will be paying for its replacement.

And if he can't pay for it, then the cousin should be replaced. They replace characters with other people on sitcoms so why don't we start doing that in real life?

New service idea: people that pretend to be your relatives(or partner/friends) at family reunions so you can replace assholes and forget about them. I'm gonna be rich. Don't steal my idea.

does no one remember the replacements?

I remember the replacements, but that was a cartoon, and not real life, though it's easy to get them mixed up.

@65 That was an awesome show ☺

well that sucks. can you get it repaired? guess now you get to play sword in the drunk.

If it was broke in half it's extremely unlikely it can be repaired most cause its core would be irreparable

He sounds like a real cockgoblin.. And why the hell was the sword in his reach when he was drunk..!?

Don't you mean, "why was your cousin getting that drunk at a birthday in the first place?" ?

#51 First off, it wasn't a birthday, it was a retirement. Second, the Japanese are very serious about honor, especially in their careers. Retirement is a VERY special occasion (I think). And on very special occasions and/or New Year's, many Japanese get very drunk and stay very drunk during the whole celebration.

Drunkenness is an important part of Japanese culture. They even have a song, wherein the chorus mentions how every month has a good reason to get drunk. (btw no one said anything about a birthday)

Being drunk is part of a lot of social situations in Japanese culture- it is actually considered impolite to turn down an opportunity to go drinking with coworkers, if I am remembering correctly.

Sorry OP! That really sucks. You should get him to buy one. On a side note: at least no one was cleaved in half. ;)

Kick split his ass into two

Think of the positives! Your dad loved the gift (I'm a little envious, so cool!) and you made some crazy family memories. (Splitting it in half was a dick move.)Also from experience drunk humans and anything shiny or pointy never ends well.
