FML - The follow-up
pdin222 Say more :
Well, where to start. First, the car is a 1995 Geo Prizm. For all of you saying, "Hey bro, should of called the dealer.", that's not possible, seeing as how they went out of business around a decade ago. It was after market junk a previous owner installed, ‘cause lord knows every kid on the block wanted a Geo Prizm, and it would have been stolen in a matter of seconds. The remote was pretty well destroyed when I go the car, and finally just fell apart on my key chain about six months ago. So no, I wasn't going to buy a new remote for my bups of a car. I finally found the theft system and just pulled it out. I now have it pierced on a stick in my front yard, to warn the other anti theft systems. Also, for those saying, "Your an idiot", it is you're, not your.

Well, you have had six months to get that remote fixed.... Often it's just that the batteries in these things become exhausted. Have you tried a new battery in the remote?

Ydi you should have known at some point you'd need to change your car battery and this would be a problem. You should have replaced your cars remote ASAP and took responsibility.

YDI for not maintaining your remote.

I agree with 15. You shouldn't go 6 months without having your car's security system activated. OP is just lucky his car hasn't been stolen.

You know, sometimes people don't have the money to get everything fixed like most of you "perfect" assholes. Shit happens and sometimes shit falls at the wrong time and you can't recover overnight.

63: woah there. Wasn't trying to insult anyone. If you can't afford a replacement remote lock for your car in SIX MONTHS, something isn't right.

You know, they might be paying off a funeral, along with insurance, bills, and everything else, you don't know. I think its hilarious I get on here and happen to find all the Stepford Wives. Everyone "perfect" and giving the "perfect I do this" advice when most of the people on here are hypocrites. "YDI for not fixing the remote." I guarandamntee you have something in/around your house you have "forgotten" or didn't have the money to repair it. EVERYONE does, period. And I know you didn't mean to offend me and its not personal but damn..

I never said OP deserved it, and I never declared that I am perfect.

74 - when agreeing with 15's comment, we're gonna assume your agreeing with his ydi too. On top of that, the wording of your comment appears like you believe OP does deserve it. When 73 say's perfect, she doesnt mean it literally. Shes just saying that while some people may have the money and time to fix things immediately, not everyone is given that choice because of other financial problems. TL;DR? Not everyone shits money out their ass.

84: if you can't afford a remote lock for six months, you probably shouldn't own a car, because the chances you can afford to even maintain it properly are slim. And yeah, my wording was kinda poor, my bad. inb4 "how should OP get around then," because, public transportation.

Thank you sonuskos (84). Exactly. I just don't like how people act like they do everything correctly and are assholes on here being "perfect". And nnnope (90) How old are you because I'm questioning how many responsibilities you actually have. Its kind of like saying that just because you can't buy your child a new pair of shoes you don't deserve to have that child or just because you can't fix the window on your car that broke because it'll cost 1000$ you dont deserve it. That's just plain retarded. I still can't afford to get my truck painted and primed (a job I'm doing myself and I've had my truck for a year) because I have shit called: electric, gas, water, and sewer bills, insurance, food, and shit my father and I need payments.

91: I also never said what anyone does or doesn't deserve. I'm 21 and I own (and am able to maintain) my own car. I don't know why you interpreted "why let 6 months to by?" as "I'm better than everyone else because this hasn't happened to me." I'm in no way trying to demean or offend anybody, and I'm not trying to assume that the OP's situation is fortunate or unfortunate. My agreement with 15 was based on a neutral standpoint, though I still do not feel OP deserved what happened. Like you said, shit happens.

Seeing as how it was after market, and on a car that is seventeen years old, I don't think that not being able to afford to fix a jank anti-theft system should put me in the category of "probably shouldn't own a car. I keep up with the maintenance and mechanical needs of my car just fine, thank you.

Let's see you throw out the money for that on an old car. Remotes aren't cheap, especially for systems that are no longer produced, and haven't been for quite some time now.

Well in that case, you should've expected bad shit to happen with a 17 year old car. You should be glad that thing hasn't gave out on you while driving (unless you overhauled it or something).

Time to call a tow truck. But hey, maybe your insurance will cover it so it will only cost you an afternoon of sanity!

I wonder why he doesn't go to the dealer for a new remote. That's what I did. It's a simple task. Go in. Just gave them insurance and license to prove its my car. Boom. Done. New remote.

Well I've never owned a ford. I'm going by how it works at MB. I would assume if you break or lose a remote all dealers would be helpful to replace it though.

it seems that whenever a car alarm goes off, nobody thinks, oh dome is trying to break into a car, its always more along the lines of SOMEBODY TURN THAT SHIT OFF NOW!!!!

Yeah, and they're a complete waste of money ever since those "human rights" commies made it illegal for car alarms to be equipped with flame throwers.

Oh sorry, I should have thought of that! Shit, you're right. In that case she should have given him a fuel inspection, fiddled with his lug nuts, and then given him some rearview action.

What? Little? I'm 19. Kindly remove your head from your ass. You sound like a condescending asshole that lives in dream world. Do me a favour and please think before opening that mouth of yours that has obviously little to no connection to whatever is proclaiming itself as a brain in there.

I'm sorry. It was entertaining at first but I can't let this go on any longer. People, pleonasm is referring to a recent FML in which someone's girlfriend left a love note in his car, but she left the lights on so that his battery died. Again I apologize, but I simply could not let the idiocy continue.
