Today, my mother sent my birthday present to me four days late. It was a handy keychain blood alcohol detector so I can make sure I'm sober before I drive. FML

Sounds like a gag gift my Dad would give me, even though I'm too much of a wuss to drink. I'll kill myself slowly with cola, thanks.

My older brother just died because he was hit by a drunk driver. I think it's a thoughtful gift to give someone. It shows they care.

That actually sounds like quite the nifty gift.

its an FML if you got a DUI in the four days the present was late.

dude seriously u don't know the magic behind those things. Go the bar and start showing everybody, tell them that you are trying to reach a certain blood alcohol level (aim for .20) and watch everyone buy u shots!

Yeah... how IS this an FML?????? I think it's a pretty awesome birthday present

that's awesome cool and helpful. how much did it cost and is it accurate?

Not only is it a great thing to have, it also shows that your mother loves you! She wants to keep you alive but doesn't want to stop you enjoying yourself.

I don't see the FML. Not only did you GET a birthday present, it's an AWESOME one! Hello, Life of the Party!?

I totally agree. You mom may have been late with the present, but that's the best present a mom could ever give you! Freakin' brilliant!

perhaps OP is saying 4 days late as in she got a DUI 4 days ago?

i would piss myself laughing if that is the case

Yes, I don't get it. My mom bought me one of those years ago, but it never worked (then again, I don't drink and drive). But it was the thought that counted....why is this an FML?

I don't understand why this is an fml. fMl for taking the time to read this. I think it would be an FML if you were a recovering alcoholic or 52 years old.

YES. I know much worse potential FMLs that were rejected, and this one made it? I thought that this was a good gift - a reminder to be responsible.

Not an FML, but I saw those little keychain breathalyzers on a while back. They're awesome, but not all that reliable. It's more of a party gag than anything.

Or, she could have given you a bottle of Everclear to make sure you're NOT sober before you drive.

I guess if you are at a party and you are too drunk to drive, I'm sure you can find some guy to drive you home. I don't know where you will wake up, but you will have been driven. Maybe more than once.

YDI if your not in college you are probably an alcoholic, its not an FML if you're in college you just have a cool mom
