Today, trying to impress my in-laws, I put a lot of effort into selecting a nice bottle of wine for dinner at their house. When I got there, I gave the bottle to my wife's mother. Later, my father-in-law emerges from the kitchen to berate his wife over her poor choice of wine. It was mine. FML

hopefully you stood up for your mother-in-law and told her husband if he didn't like your taste in wine to purchase his own.

Welp, you tried, ultimately though, you failed. The important question: did you stand up for the mom in law, or not? That wins you points in the moms book, or makes you lose points.

It's just wine. Nothing to FML about here.

The father in law slept wineless

Did she sell you out?

Who the fuck tells off their father in law??? Especially as a boyfriend/husband, etc... Jesus, people think they can treat anyone however they want just cause they dont agree, especially those older than you. Saying ah, that was actually me that brought the wine is totally fine, but standing up to someone who probably has a pretty lax relationship with their wife and has no problem expressing their thoughts with her is just fucking disrespectful on your part.

If OP is not big into wine he probably should have gotten some help in picking it out. Nevertheless the whole situation is unfortunate.

Nobody has to know.... Just smile and wave...

Not everyone likes one particular brand of wine, don't beat yourself up OP.

Can't please everyone. Specially those who can't just say they didn't like it instead of overreacting

Aw man. Oh well just come clean OP I'm sure he'd appreciate the honesty and also it's not like you didn't try

So how did this end? I wanna know.

What a winey father-in-law you're stuck with. Did you tell him to put a cork in it?

Puns that work! Yay!

Why are you trying to impress with something you are unfamiliar with? I'm sure there are many other qualities that you have, otherwise, their daughter wouldn't have married you. Stick with things you know.

Who says OP is unfamiliar with wine? It just says his father-in-law didn't like it.

I got the impression because he said "I put a lot of effort into..." If he really knew wines well it would take any effort. I wasn't trying to put OP down, just suggesting that he shouldn't feel he has to impress at this point, but if he felt he did then stick to something that he absolutely knows would turn out well.
