Today, my dad got me a GPS for my birthday. I appreciate the sentiment, but I don't have a permit or a car. FML

Maybe it's a two part gift?

Attach it to your bicycle. You never know when you might need it.


You can put wheels on a box??

Might as well start studying the area you live in, so driving will be super-easy. Give killer directions, too. Who knows? You might even be the next Ferdinand Magellan!

Maybe take this as motivation to start on that?

OP, check if there's still a GPS in your dad's car..?

Superglue it to your head? That would work.

I'm going out on a limb here. Get a job and buy one?

It can be for whenever you get your permit and car.

Well no diddly doo shit

OP's dad: "oh you don't have a car? I'm so sorry...I guess I'll have to use the GPS"

Or so OP doesn't get lost when walking to places. Maybe OP gets lost easily? lol

Maybe it's a two part gift?

That'd be nice, but OP doesn't even have their permit. It'd be at least a year until they get a car. I highly doubt its a two part gift.

Wow. you just might be right you know.

Christmas is coming soon. And some states only require permits for 6 months.

But you will someday, I presume? It's a pretty nice gift. Way to be appreciative.

op did say they appreciated it..

I honestly cannot tell if that was sarcastic or not.

Doc, I feel like this is something you would do...or have done? :O

Attach it to your bicycle. You never know when you might need it.

That is a nice idea, but it might lead to: "Today, someone stole the GPS from my bike. FML." On the other hand, it gives me another FML to leave dumbass comments. HOORAY!

like that one.^ hooray

#5 - It's probably thanks to guys with suggestions like yours that FMLs keep pouring in. keep up the good work!

It must be a teaser for next year

With suspense like that, OP's dad is the modern Alfred Hitchcock!

Well put it somewhere safe when you do start to drive that will be your golden light and bop your dad on the forehead why not get that when you're like 16 or 17 and staring to drive ?

maybe it is a hint as to what gift will come next?

yeah there are alot of comments saying another present later will be the car but no one thinks about how he/she has to go get his/her permit

I had a car before I even started taking classes. OP may not want his car damaged, and bought OP their own to learn in. Regardless if OP got a car or not should just be appreciative they got a gift at all. Let alone an expensive one.

That was a good one

They're great if you ever rent a car, or you could use it when you drive with your friends.
