In Europe, Fries are called Chips. OP is probably European, as she posted this in French. Her husband preparing for the Football World Cup also hints they are European.

154 - I don't know man, I live in England so I don't really know what you guys watch in U.S. Thought watching football(soccer) was a European thing as all my friends from U.S. just like to watch baseball and super-bowl. We freeze our chips and cook them in the oven from frozen.

#155 I've said this a lot in this FML, so sorry to repeat myself like a senile granny, but "chips" does not stand for "fries" in all of Europe. Just in the UK and Ireland. In most of continental Europe, chips has the same meaning as in American English.

155 - we cook ours from frozen too, so i dont get your point there, unless maybe theres a miscommunication. when i say fridge, i mean JUST the part that keeps things cool. the freezer portion i consider a seperate thing, even though it usually comes in the whole "refridgerator" unit

OP is from the United States, so it wouldn't have been the European version of "chips." Therefore, it's still odd to keep said chips in a fridge (which, in American terms, is different from a freezer).

Well their is a freezer unit in most fridges so I am assuming OP meant the freezer. I mean why would someone put chips in the fridge unless they are putting it in the freezer. Just use common sense. Jeez!! I mean what do you want the FML to be. Today, my husband reorganized our fridge and freezer for the World Cup. He cleared everything out and filled it with beer in the refrigerator and chips in the freezer unit of our refrigerator. And by chips I mean fries as I am from England. FML

Actually, if you read the comments below, in the original French version of this FML, it's not chips, it's salami. The FML team decided to change it to chips because they thought that it would speak to a wider audience.

I feel like those heated chips are amazing... Room temperature is ok but heated is the way to go! Put those suckers in the oven for a few minutes and boom. The best tasting chips ever!

#66 Nope, OP speaks French, and in French chips are the same as in American English. So, for some random reason, chips are in the fridge. We say "frites" for fries. It's the literal translation. It's the same in a lot of European countries. In my experience, only English speaking countries in Europe have a different word for chips (crisps).

My BF grew up in New York and because of rat problems there, out of habit, he puts everything that's opened in our fridge. Cereals, bread etc.. though not potato chips but those Stella pretzel chips are in there as we speak. And as far as beer? He bought and extra refrigerator for the garage JUST to store his Yuengling and Sierra Nevadas.

#77 Time to introduce your husband to the wonders of air tight plastic storage containers. Sounds like you could free up a lot of fridge space that way.

Beat me to it. Moisture will ruin chips, cereal and the like so he's just trying to keep them fresh fore game day, but how much beer is in the fridge that he cleared out everything?

Yeah chip bags are actually filled with nitrogen (why they're half air when you buy them) so that they stay crispy and don't absorb water vapor from the air. So unless they were all opened bags of chips, storing them in the fridge still doesn't make any sense.

Refusing to butcher a language doesn't make you an English professor. Reminds me of the song from My Fair Lady... "Why can't the English teach their children how to speak?" (well English speaking).

@some numbers. Fridge chips exist, and I mean chips as in the cooked variety, not crisps. Not all need to be frozen. Happens a lot in meal packs (fish and chips etc) that come as one an can be microwaved quickly, not the eat at all but quick.

He didnt have to point it out. regardless of if I get down voted for this crap its not right to belittle someone for a minor thing like this. He was just being a troll for no reason. The dude could have gotten the dv's and everything would be okay but I mean why was it so serious to point out his structuring unless it bothered the bein of your existence. People like you are just assholes for stupid stuff like this. If you want to find faults in everyone's errors and get liked for it go be some mediocre talk show host.

Maybe what #10 is trying to say is that the husband had to throw away everything that was previously in the fridge, hence the wasting money part. It is not specified in the FML though. Maybe he ate it all, Joey Tribbiani style.

42, that's exactly what I meant. Unless he pulled a Tribbiani, he threw out a lot of usable food and replaced it with crap. Not that there's anything wrong with chips and beer, but all things in moderation is a saying for a reason. I suppose I should have made my original comment clearer...
