Today, my mother machine-washed a suit I rented for a friends wedding, despite me informing her that it was dry-clean only, and that the store would take care of it. I now owe $1600 to replace the suit, and my mum is refusing to help pay, as she was "only trying to help." FML

Aeroboss tells us more.

Hello guys! OP here. Did not think it would get posted. So, to add onto the story, my friend's wedding was postponed a week because we had a little rain and he wanted an outdoor wedding. My mom usually is a pretty wonderful woman, but she is still used to cleaning up after myself and my siblings, probably because my youngest has muscular dystrophy and can't walk. We ended up sorting it out with the company, who informed us they could send us a new one. To be honest, repairing the suit would have cost less than just renting another one. Anyway, thanks for listening to the rant. Bye.

she wasn't very helpful...

Be sure to tell your mom that the road to Hell is paved with good intentions. That and to get her hearing aide checked.

Still, she should pay the money. You could quite easily be as mean to her, or simply take the money from her. Either way, it's completely unrealistic of her to think that she shouldn't pay.

And that at all excuses the fact that she did something as outrageously foolish as machine wash an expensive suit?

Hmph. Parents...

Yeah, Your mom is an idiot! Guys know you can't put (expensive) dresses in a washer, why would suits be any different. Also your mom is an idiot.

Agree with Josher.. your mom's an idiotic idiot.

Dude...Josher...that's an awesome idea...If your mom has an expensize dress that she takes pride in, stuff it in the washing machine. When it gets ruined, refuse to pay for a new one since "You were only trying to help".

Like that Madonna song says: "The road for Hell is paved with good intentions".. ----- I don't think it was refering to washing a suit, though..

I thought of Randy Travis, but Madonna works too.

haha yeah put her wedding dress in the washer if you really wanna get back at her. ots kinda mean but go big or go home

It was her choice to do so, if she did not want that responsibilty then she shouldnt have taken it.

she wasn't very helpful...

xD no she wasn't!

I'd find a way of doing it tell her ur going docs or something, but duno the price, ask for a blank cheque, n bang* money found. if u told ur mum not to, then she shudv known better.

lurn tooz spel

Your mom made a dumb decision, and her refusal to help will count against her in Karma points. Good luck finding a way to get your mom to pay.

take nood pics of your mom and sell on internet.

"nood" pics? We really need an age requirement in here - I think 12 is entirely too young to be reading some of these entries...

I agree. Not to mention that the kiddies posting that kind of crap make the place annoying as well.

At 12 i could spell. Thats either rather perverted 8 year olds or someone who spent their time watching their mum change instead of doing their homework.

@83 agreed lol and 12 is NOT too young to be reading, probably too young for posting but definately not for reading 10 would be (approximately) too young for READING

ur a perv

Be sure to tell your mom that the road to Hell is paved with good intentions. That and to get her hearing aide checked.

Oh it works, she just doesnt turn it on because it wears the batteries out.

Reference WIN!

What a typical American response. That said, his mum clearly is retarded.

way to make americans look stupid. thanks.

Ha! This is an opportunity to show how this idiot's ignorance of grammar is so much more humorous than his ignorance of racial sensitivity and general good manners: FUCK!! U NIGGER AMERICANS ROCK!! (we are so cool!) FUCK U! NIGGER AMERICANS ROCK!! (thanks for having our back?) FUCK U, NIGGER! AMERICANS ROCK!! (patriotism is so beautiful!) FUCK U, NIGGER-AMERICANS! ROCK!!!!!! (rock-on, man; rock-on) FUCK: U NIGGER AMERICANS ROCK. (we are skilled at it, but there's no need to advertise...) :)

Judge Judy :)

can relate it sucks my mom ruined nice pants outfit and my phone that was in the pocket she didn't help either. I think your mom should give half or somethin

She should pay for all of it, tbh. What a mother. FYL.

#9 agreed. apparently you are a dumb ass. if you tell her not to do something and she seems insistent anyway then you hide it. you deserve it for living with her.

how do you know that he lives with her? he could just be staying with her for the wedding, since his friend might be from his hometown. don't be so bitter just because you're a girl and you look like keanu rives.

You made me giggle like a little school girl.

Slap that ho.
