Today, my mother threw away my brand new headphones. She saw them on the couch with duct tape on the wires and assumed they were "old, broken, and cheap." I put the tape there to avoid damaging the wires. FML

I've found another of my people; someone who cares about their shit.
As I type this, I'm listening to music with headphones with tape on the wires. Nothing wrong with it, just tell your mom next time.

These kind of FMLs just piss me the hell off. I better go cool off.

Where on the wires do you put the tape? I have never heard of this trick and want to use it on my $15 stereo headphones and $30 (though I got them free) I phone earpods. And for the information of any readers, I got the earpods for christmas only because I didn't want the phone.

She better buy new ones for Op. Also, I really can't believe she would throw out headphones. I am pretty sure you can tell if they are a nice pair of headphones if you despite the fact there was ductape. I wonder what kind they were? Skull headphones? Nakamichi? Turtlebeach? Maybe they were just Somk because I find that Somk sucks or the pair I got for free do. I don't use Somk. My headphones have an interchangable wire port on them so I don't have to worry if the wire gets screwy.

#14: Of course I would be angry, but I would never dare say that to my mother or anyone else for that matter, especially when upset.

It is called RESPECT.

15. In some cases of mutual respect people do tend to insult each other and still have that respect. Me and my mother for instance on a daily basis we insult each other and are still very close.

It's the Internet, everyone seems turn into an English teacher for no apparent reason


#52 Do you know what a contraction is? You used one in your sentence; It is known to be poor or informal literature. More for speaking than writing. Even I know this and English was my worst subject. Embarrassed?
"Started from the bottom now we're* here". Pun intended


#78 I agree with you, They are not wrong or incorrect to use. But any English professor would say it is informal to use them, they are not a formal version of text. A collegiate English professor would say they are more for speaking than writing. When you are going to be rude to someone, and bash their literature it is safe to make sure you cover yourself 100% and not 95% like #52 did. It just looks lazy or half-ass. I guess what I was trying to say is his sentence could have been better. There was room for grammatical improvement.

Exactly. As soon as you are finished with it you must immediately toss it into a black hole so it disappears forever. That way no one can throw it out
