Today, my husband surprised me by cooking a romantic dinner. I asked him why the sudden gesture. His response? "The cable was out." FML

Who cares why? Just enjoy the romance!

Sounds just fine to me! Be glad you got some of that quality time! It's so rare these days!

Maybe the cable should be out more often

Right?! Who cares why? At least he cared enough to make you a nice romantic dinner in the first place

some people just can't be plain happy with something :(

Exactly he could have chose to go out to the bar or hang out w his friends or go mow the yard but instead he did something nice for u.. So appreciate it!!

The cable might not have gone out, either. He may have just been telling a joke.

Shame. He could've gotten so many bonus points with that.

He was probably bored and just wanted to have sex, and he figured the best way to get laid was by cooking you a romantic dinner.. Oh wait, that sounds like my husband.. Forget I said anything and be thankful that he at least thought of doing something sweet for you!

Shit husband you have there. :)

How is he a shit husband? He wants to have sex with his wife, so he cooks a romantic dinner to facilitate it. Sounds better than a lot of husbands who just expect sex from their wives no matter what.

I see my sarcasm went highly unnoticed. The smiley was just not enough... *facepalm* Well, Liz. Maybe next time.

Further proof that the Internet needs a sarcasm button.

Italics has always seemed pretty sarcastic.

Boohoo. Your husband gave you a romantic dinner. Your life sure is ******...

How's this an FML?? Stop complaining and eat!

If I were you, I would make the cable "go out" more often (:

In the future, don't question and just enjoy.

That is if the cable goes out again... A man does need his TV! Especially if he's a sports junkie!

Man, people just can't handle your sarcasm! I fear for the future.

That sounds wonderful! A nice, quiet evening with a romantic dinner. Your husband should be on here complaining that you didn't appreciate the gesture. Not you complaining that he did something nice for you.

27. And it does sort of sound like complaining.

Yes, she is complaining, but people may have still missed the point.

So Alan, are you telling us that FML doesn't mean what we thought it meant? We thought the whole reason for coming here is to complain. It certainly didn't sound like she was bragging.

You're fighting a loosing battle, Alan.

Ratorr, most of us use it to laugh about those crazy moments in our life that some of us can relate to, I agree with Alan, it does not seems like she was complaining.

I think she's complaining indirectly about her husband's response...

If that's an FML for you consider yourself lucky
