Today, the bank called saying we were late in the mortgage payments. I was puzzled because three months ago I issued a big cheque to my mum pay off the mortgage. I just discovered that she instead lost it all at the casino. Turns out, she's become a compulsive gambler ever since dad passed away. FML

That's weird. I was moderating the fml's yesterday and I saw one VERY similar to this. The same wording for the most part, and they spelt check the same way. o.o

This is shocking, and i find it funny all the Americans who are too dense to understand this. I hope that you and your mum overcome this!

It's called English for a reason - 'mum' and 'cheque' = British-English.

Um... 'cheque' and 'check' are two totally different words...

In Australia we spell it "Cheque". In Australia, we also know people from other parts of the world spell words differently.

F your life for making Americans look stupid and ignorant. thanks.

Ignorance is lack of knowledge. I already knew that people from Australia and the UK spelled it as cheque and said "mum". They also say "bloke" and "mate".

Check and Mom are both bastardizations of English's cheque and Mum. You're a stereotypical stupid yank. GTFO

not neccessarily, pnly most of the white people do (yes, jab at immigration policies, educational loopholes etc)

Wtf are you talking about, mr_mick?

Why is it relevant that British people say 'bloke' and 'mate'?

Bastardizations? -_- Ever heard of not being a jerk

FYL for being an ignorant xenocentrist. FYI I'm also American. Thanks for representing us.

American English is retarded, that is all.

If your mom wants to make a little extra money, have her call me. ;) Kidding. **** your life, big time.

Yep. I'm Madam Intoxicunt, and she can have her own lesser nickname. Actually, I was thinking of paying her for her services, but that works too. If I'm the "pimp" I get her profits plus free sex. Whoo!

Why don't your just pay your mortgage yourself and not depend on your mom to do it?

Actually he was the one paying the mortgage on his house, not his Mother. All that woman did was waste all his money at the Casino.

I think he lives with his mother, and his mother said she was going to the bank or out to do some errands, so he gave his mother the cheque, not realizing she wouldn't ever take it there.

Actually, that really sucks.. But FMLs should at least be a little funny and not just depressing.

but then everyone bitches that it's not really an FML

your the dumbfuck who thought it was compulsory to spell mum as 'mom' and cheque as 'check. -.-

You're the dumb **** who thinks "your" and "you are" mean the same thing.

In australia we use the same kind of words as england. like, you say gray, the english&aussies say grey.

In the Midwest, we say "pop". People on the coasts of America say "soda". And our way of talking is superior to all you assholes on the coast.

moonlight_daze 8

"Y'all" is Southern Dialect and/or Ebonics. I'm a whiteboy from the Midwest so I'm not sure what "y’all" has to do with anything. As for "sucker," that's street slang. "Pop" is just what soft drinks are called. Plain and simple. If you go to a pizza place (a REAL pizza place - outside of Chicago, you guys don't know shit about pizza) and look at the menu is says POP not "so-duh!". If you go to a grocery store around here, you look for the POP aisle. Face it. "So-duh" sounds ******* stupid. Hello kettle, the pot called and you're black..

**Outside of Chicago and its surrounding suburbs, you guys don't know shit about real pizza. And that was a comment for #38 by the way.

actuals, canadians say pop too.

moonlight_daze 8

I shake hands with you Canadian..

Apparently you're superior because you use the word "pop" instead of "soda". Wow. The word soda comes from Sodium Bicarbonate, a prominent ingredient in carbonated drinks. The More You Know!*

moonlight_daze 8

The President of the United States says “pop” instead of “so-duh”.

Why not just say the name of the drink... most of the people i know (i live in australia) just say like 'coke' or 'sprite' or whatever. Or you can say soft drink. I don't know where that comes from though

#77, That's cause he's the president of the UNITED STATES, you dumb ****. That explains why he'd speak American English. The more you comment, the more you perpetuate the notion that so many (not all) of you Americans are delusioned with the idea that you're superior to everyone else. Hey guess what? **** you. yours is the country that's fighting to prevent a economic default. Superior my ass. Go learn some respect. And maybe some history- American English was derived from British English. Your English is the bastard child of Brit English.

Also, you don't know shit about pizza. Pizza comes from Italy. ******* idiot.

One last thing: I find it hilarious that you keep criticizing the most minor of grammatical mistakes made by other people, and then decide to 'shake hands' with the guy who thinks 'actuals,' is a proper conjunction adverb. Good job (:

a) pay off your own mortgage! and b) it took you three months to notice the money didn't go through!?!

moonlight_daze 8

I know, right? It took you three months to notice your check didn't clear?

Obviously if his mother gambled the check away, it did clear. If it didn't clear, he'd still have the money.

crown casino ! gahh FYL i hope you can get her some help and sorry about your dad
