Today, my instructor turned up late to get me for my driving test. I soon realized something was seriously wrong. Turned out his wife left him last night, and he'd been drinking the pain away all morning. He ended up rear-ending another car, and now I have to reschedule my test. FML

I agree that is definitely FYL. On the bright side you didn't get hurt

Heart broken or not he must've known that was the worst possible idea. Should have called in sick.

Am I the only one wondering why OP got in a car with a clearly drunk driver?

I agree with that..maybe they didn't realize until they were already in the car?

I must be reading it a different way. OP didn't get in the car with their instructor. The instructor was late because he rear ended someone on the way to picking up OP.

I think op could be more empathetic

Everyone please. It clearly states the instructor turned up late, meaning he actually made it there. OP probably hopped in so the instructor could drive to said test location, and he rear ended someone on the way. How in the hell could OP find out his instructors wife left him and he was drunk? He had to have been with him. I don't know who else would have given him that info, they wouldn't and couldn't. Boom! The end

he drove drunk, the instructor should have rang op and told him the situation rather than get in the car pissed and drive to take him for his test. He could've killed someone, I don't think op needs to be more empathetic at all

@32 by the instructor rocking up in a damaged car and apologising for being late while explaining the story is one possibility

Op also learned a valuable lesson today. Don't drink and drive!

I wonder what #32's outlook on politics are, she can only see one side, its probably a nightmare.

That sucks, OP. Glad to hear you made it out safe though.

The instructor at least owes OP a few free lessons before the new test.

I would be more inclined to find a new instructor and explain the situation rather than go with the same one who drove drunk.

Chin up OP. At least he didn't try to blame the accident on you.

Why would he?!

I would say F his life maybe more than FYL...

Its really an FML for your instructor. Hope he gets everything sorted out.
