Today, my family threw me a surprise party for my 29th Birthday. My brother-in-law sent me a text telling me they were all waiting for me to arrive. Thinking it was at my sister's home, I drove two hours there. It was actually at my parents' house. I missed my party and they ate my cake. FML

"Hey, dude, we're throwing you a surprise birthday party. We're waiting for you." "OK, I'm on my way to a party and I have no idea where it is." I see 3 things wrong with that conversation: 1) He spoiled the surprise 2) He didn't tell you where the party was 3) You didn't bother to ask where the party was

They sent you a text to tell you they were ready to surprise you with a birthday party?

Well you shouldn't be mad... it's your own fault

How is it the OPs fault? Her brother should have told her where it was.

she assumed. it's her fault she could have asked where it was. sorry by ydi for not asking questions

*Surprise location party At least that would make sense, I think, and explain a lot.

Why would anyone throw a Surprise Location Party? "Oh hey, we're having a party for you. But. First you have to figure out where it is, or you don't get any presents." That makes a lot of sense.

Uh...I don't think people generally plan parties and leave the location as a surprise. >_> I think it was one of those fake ones, where you pretend the person is going to be surprised, and they pretend to be, but it's pretty obvious. That, or the party was planned, but the OP thought it would only be a couple people, and the surprise would be all the extravagant decoration and lots of people.

Paha, I'm the only one that finds that fun? It's like hide and seek for men.

Actually. Now that I think about it, as impractical as it is, a Surprise Location Party sounds kinda fun. I WANNA PLAY HIDE AND SEEK. :(

A scavenger hunt to the location would be pretty cool too.

For any more idiots thinking about screaming FIRST, SECOND, THIRD, etc: if it's me patrolling the recent comments while you do it, you'll get a warning on your account, as well as ban time that increases with every similar offence you commit. That is all.

why the hell would you think it's at your sisters house? why didn't you ask?

Because his brother-in-law called him. Your brother-in-laws tend to be married to either your brother or your sister.

cuz it's probably fake, (and against the rules for me to say so, but ya know. :-P Not my place to judge.)

Or be your husband's brother, which means it could be at either place.

It was her brother-in-law by her sister. Those details are in the FML. She should have asked, but it's not unreasonable to assume that the party would be at the place of the person telling you about the party. Driving 2 hours when everyone is already ready for your arrival is what wouldn't have made sense to me.

Ok, depending on how close you actually live to your parents, this is ridiculous. If you live less than an hour away from your parents', why didn't anyone call or text you a second time to be like, "dude, where are you?"

@6 man shut tha fuck up u imature lil bitch n stop fuckin talkin shit. shit I kno I wudda been pissed off

LOL what did I say? I'll request that the local mental health clinic send you a pamphlet. Oh wait, let me write that so you can read it, " ILL recuest tht tha locul mntl health clinik sen u ah pamplet son, wurd."

That's exactly what I was thinking.

and how exactly did they expect him to go to the right house if it was a surprise. Wouldn't he just go to his own home without the aforementioned knowledge, so why weren't they at his house instead of his mothers? I mean...isn't the surprise that he wouldn't know they were planning on seeing him so they work around his schedule and surprise him...not lure him over there... it doesn't make sense,

Yeah, if it were to be a surprise the OP wouldn't of known about it, but apparently they did. That's the beauty in #12's comment.

THEY ATE YOUR CAEK!!!!!!!!!

The cake is a lie.

portal reference ftw!

Is "ate my cake" a metaphor for some wild sex move?
