Today, my boyfriend and I got into a huge argument while driving home from visiting family. We pulled into a gas station, and I went inside to grab a drink and cool down. When I came back out, both car and boyfriend were nowhere in sight. It was my car. FML
marcranger tells us more :
This actually happened a couple years ago, and to answer everyone's implied questions, yes he is now my ex, yes this incident was the catalyst, yes I called the cops, and yes I got the car back! After standing outside for a few seconds with my jaw flapping in the wind, then realizing my phone was in the car to top everything else off, I went back inside and had the attendant dial the local cops. Since I knew the make, model, license plate, and rough direction where the cockhole was going, it was pretty easy to track down. He did have the audacity to call me and ask (demand, actually) that I bail his ass out, but I laughed and hung up. I ultimately wound up dropping the charges, since his parents are very well-connected in their hometown, and I knew the lawyer they got him would have been able to get him off on probation or something equally pathetic. But mostly I dropped them because the family was wealthy and vindictive enough that I could have seen them suing me (!!!) to get back the cost of the lawyer's fees, and once it was all said and done, I just wanted a clean break. He had some mental health issues (depression, alcoholism, longtime unemployment) going on way before this, and I'd been weighing my options for getting out for a while. At least his real-life GTA5 enactment gave me the chance I needed!

I don't know what the laws are in the States but in Canada he wouldn't get charged with theft if she left the keys in the car, he would only get charged with joyriding as long as he wasn't planning on keeping it but he's still a prick!

Well when I read the fml to me it sounds as if they were fighting and to mess with his gf he took off. I don't think he thought he was gonna get away with it and actually steal the car. It just see it as one person getting mad at another, and not actual theft. It's her (ex)boyfriend and not some random person at a gas station.

I hope that the station is not too far from where u live, so u can get home easily! As far as concerned i won't be that optemistic and say he did that so to buy u flowers! u should definitly teach him a lesson about what he did !!!

#13, I did teach remedial English once upon a time...maybe I should go back into it as a form of community service?

In any case, the gas station was four hours from home. Not exactly walking distance, especially since I live in the mountains and it was snowing.

I'm not sure where you're from because the app I have doesn't show it, but I'm from Oklahoma and it only snowed last night about four inches and I can't even get up or down my driveway. So I imagine walking in those conditions in the mountains was definitely decided against. I'm sorry that happened to you! Your boyfriend is a dick!
