Today, my landlord came and beat on my door demanding the rent check. I just got home from a trip and my wife was supposed to pay it while I was away. What happened to the money? Black Friday. FML

Why didnt he jus do it himself, instead of trusting his wife to do it knowing black Friday was jus around the corner. I agree she's an idiot but he is too!

I can imagine that now, OP: "you know we needed that money to live right?" Wife: "but I just had to get pointless things I don't need!!"

When pointless things are on "sale", somehow the perception changes to "necessary things". Stupid bitch.

@79 it says in the fml that he just got back from a trip, so how could he have done it himself if he wasn't there?

Damn that Rebecca black! Oh... You meant the holiday? I knew that...

JFYI, it's not a holiday, it's an event.

Bah, I have no money so it's not like I get to go ;(

i thought this was funny! why is everyone thumbs downing it?

All this thumbs downing is really piss offing me.

Return the items she bought and get you're money back.

#26 Bad grammar, bad spelling?!? MAKE IT STAWP!!! "MAKE IT STAWP" "STAWP"

Also, you can't return items bought on discount.

She's your wife. If she's THAT financially irresponsible, you should know by now not to trust her with rent while you're away. With Black Friday coming up no less, come on man. YDI.

*Come on woman.* Looks like OP is a female.

My mistake, I saw wife and assumed straight couple. In that case, come on, woman.

#12 - They were correct the first time; OP is a man. Your comment is now invalid.

it's stories like that which make the rest of us females look like unintelligent fools who only think with their credit cards smh

Oh...so all females aren't actually unintelligent fools?

ShroomsOnAcid 16

Unfortunately, the rest of us account for something like 10% of the total female population, if we are to be optimistic.

American holiday before thanksgiving day, where there are big sales and discounts on useless crap people don't need

Black Friday is the day AFTER Thanksgiving, no?

AFTER Thanksgiving, people line up outside of stores at like two in the morning waiting for the doors to open. There's usually some pretty sweet deals.

on black Friday stores sell huge 50" TVs for a ******* dollar it's not just for game shit or electronics it's for almost anything u want yes it's material things but I bought 3 TVs and sold them separately and made a ton on money so it's not just crap stuff

It's after Thanksgiving and it's an event, not a holiday.

we don't have Black Friday or thanksgiving here, only Black Saturday :( how very depressing x( I still cry :(

Ask whether he'll take payment in obscure kitchen implements. Maybe see whether he wants that strange device you still haven't entirely worked out the function of, but everyone was fighting over them and there was only one left. You know the one.

Implements? WTF are you talking about?

The type of stuff people typically purchase on black Friday; never stuff you need, always stuff you vaguely desire because it's massively reduced.

FYLDeep 25

I've never heard implements used as a noun before. I had to look that up. I guess the more Americanized version of what you meant would be "obscure kitchen appliances".

Yeah, I'm British, I wasn't actually aware implements in that context wasn't also used across the pond. While my American English is far from perfect, I'd be surprised if it's never used as a noun at all; do phrases such as stone implements, blunt implement, implement of torture etc really not see any usage in the US?

76, We usually use instrument to refer to such things.

Never leave your money with a woman, especially on Black Friday!!

Really u women can be that financially irresponsible not to pay rent before u blow ur money????
