FML - The follow-up

Today, what started off as an amazing date with my girlfriend ended with me driving her drunk ass home while she sat in the backseat making out with her new boyfriend. FML

BimmerDriver Say more :
Because I won't let anyone drive drunk, no matter who it is. And it's cheaper to drive them home as opposed to paying for a taxi.

you all are trashing on OP because he drove them home instead of letting them drive. I know for a fact most drunk people will not care for a taxi and will attempt to drive home, so if he were to put them in a cab he would have to pay. so saving himself the cash he drove them instead of letting them drive and potentially getting them both killed. OPs a pretty good guy for doing that and his EX obviously didn't deserve him.

No you don't. If you let somebody use you like that then that means that you absolutely do deserve just that. It's like if I slapped you in the face and you responded with thank you.

85 - Just because you let someone bully you definitely does not mean that you deserve it. He was obviously driving home two drinks that couldn't drive himself, and I'd imagine his girlfriend hadn't done anything like that before. Open your eyes.

True story: Richard Nixon used to drive the girl he loved, Pat, on dates with other guys and eventually, he married her. Moral of the story: To get the girl, you have to be a Dick.

No, because if OP had written 'ex-girlfriend' then the whole focus of the complaint would be that she was drunk and/or making out, and we would have had no idea that the actual FML is that the OP was going out with the girl when the night started.

No, what #4 was trying to do is use the expression that is used every time that an FML describes a situation where people either have been dumped, or should be dumped - saying that a reference to a boy/girl friend should in fact say 'ex' boy/girl friend. Also it's obvious from the fact that the person his girlfriend was making out with is her 'new boyfriend' that OP and the girl broke up that night

Word of advice OP, grow a pair. If she got drunk and started hooking up with another guy why not let her pay for a taxi? Fuck driving her drunk ass around town with some random guy. I sure as hell wouldn't let trash like her inside my BMW, she'd be better suited in a puked stained cab.

I just have to know two things 1. How did you maintain your composure. 2. Why in the name of fuck didn't you get them a cab personally I'd be way to angry to even look at them without shit blowing up.

I commend you for keeping a drunk driver off the road. You wouldn't want her killing someone who is worth the skin they're in. Do yourself a favor and wash your hands clean of this one. These actions, that make you a wuss in the eyes of so many here, honestly just make you a much better person than she deserves.

Why not inform the authorities of their intent to drive drunk? Phone in their plates and where they're leaving from, then the cops will have an officer waiting to give them a free* ride and a free* night stay in the drunk tank. I'd say he has it coming, for what she did, and what she supposedly planned to do. *Cost may vary wildly

I didn't HAVE to pay for her to take a taxi, but I knew that if I didn't pay for one she wouldn't take one. So instead of actually wasting money on her, I just took her and her equally drunk knew boyfriend back to her place.

To all of you saying that open is a push over or has no balls just shut the hell up. Just because you people don't have morals and probably would have let someone drive drunk doesn't mean open should have has well. Hard to believe doing the right thing is frown upon now.

OP making sure your ex doesn't drive drunk is commendable. Personally I'd have called a cab and put them in it and let them figure out how to pay for it when they get home.

I think what you did OP was very honorable if they had chosen to drive they could of killed Someone and maybe even their selves it would take a very strong person to give their ex a ride home while they make out with their new boyfriend.

Hey OP, I used to be in your shoes ... I had fallen in love with a girl and went out with her a lot. She often went home with other guys and eventually told me I'm too nice for her. Took a while for me to realize I had to let go. It's noble you wanted to save her from paying for a taxi ... But that girl is going to take advantage of your affection and not return any of it. Probably best to cut it off and stop speaking to her altogether. Could cause a sudden realization in her and make her consider you ... but I'd be careful ... if she changes her mind this easily she will leave you soon for someone else...

I am with you in possibly saving an innocent persons life. But like someone else stated, I'd of thrown them in a cab then let them figure out how to pay for it, took her keys, or most likely I would have gave her the ride home but no way in hell would I of let the new guy in the car with her. That's a little much for the dignity. I'd of cock blocked and then gave her the boot.

CnIn tandem with 173 It gives it a very faint yet yellow looking background versus the faint blue of the average commenter. .. And in continuation first string comments get a "faint" white background.

IMO it takes more balls to get her home then give into anger. I always kid and call myself a door mat for doing similar things. But to me, my dignity comes from doing what is right in a hard situation and being able to face myself in the morning. Now that you did the hard thing and did that one last nice thing for her, you can hold your head high and move on with your life.

You should've at least dropped them in the middle of some country road (at least two hours drive away from any town) in the middle of bumfuck nowhere. The drive there and back would be a bitch, but it'd be totally worth it and as a bonus, no worries about the idiots killing someone drunk driving.

If they weren't going to pay for a cab then it was better doing this or paying for one than saying they should pay for a taxi and the pair ignoring OP and drink driving. Drink driving puts them in danger as well as other people on the road. OP did a responsible thing. Don't put him down for it.

Sir, op you are very honorable person. This FML has awoken so many emotions in me. I can relate in a way. You're the better man. Of course your no loser.

Reply

Thank God you won't! There could've been an accident if you didn't drive them home and that would've been a whole lot worse :O (even though you probably want the other guy dead...at least metaphorically...)

That's why you take their keys and leave on your own. They can't drive drunk and you aren't the schmuck that is driving this hoe bag around. Sorry, your actions aren't valiant, they're stupid. YDI, your choice created the situation you had to endure. I'd wager that you were a doormat in this relationship and that's what lead to this happening.

The problem with that is, if she refused to pay for it, she could go to jail, which affects your future. One trip to jail can completely fuck your life up. If he took her keys, OP could get the cops called on him for theft. OP did the right thing, it doesn't make him a loser.

Fuck that! Dude your girlfriend was cheating on you in the backseat of YOUR car! Make them pay for that taxi or the $10K for a DUI after doing that! It would've been my foot, their ass, out the door onto the pavement! Man you gotta grow a sack and quit letting people walk all over you! Lemme guess she called you the next day wanting to hang out?

Reply

Wait a second. You are worried about her new guy having to pay for a taxi? What is wrong with you? And it's good try won't let anyone drive drunk, but after what she did, you aren't responsible for her anymore. Have absolutely no excuse for even driving only her pathetic skanky ass home, much less her new boyfriend. Grow a pair dude!

All you people telling op to grow and pair and all that, need to follow your own advice. It may not have been his responsibility but he saved them from driving drunk. He made sure that they got to a safe point so as to not potentially endanger others and that is a very comendable thing. So quit being douches!

Make them pay for the taxi?????????? Why would you pay for it? Just throw them in and tell the driver where to. Let them deal with the payment by themselves. YDI for being such a pushover.

OP, I originally agreed with everyone saying that you shouldn't have driven your girlfriend and her new infatuation home, but now that I've read through a couple of these comments, I realize that you don't need to "grow a pair". However, I'm not so sure about some of these FMLers... Congrats (and thank you) for being the bigger man, stepping up, and keeping some drunks off the road. If I could give you money/chocolate/hugs, I would.

Because OP would still have feelings for that person and doesn't want them to get hurry driving themselves home? And on the bright side of things, OP could have talked it out with her and everything is fine. Correct me if I'm wrong OP?

OP- You are a good person for caring about others. All too often, it is the drunk driver who survives the crash and the ones who weren't that end up dying. I raise my next glass to you sir.

OP,I think you are an awesome person! That takes balls to stay calm while driving your ex and her boyfriend home. You also could've saved someone's life by doing it! So good job OP!

I assume because she had no other ride home and he wasn't going to leave someone he cared about out at night. I wouldn't atleast. I'd rather feel bad knowing she's safe with a different guy then feel bad AND have to wonder if she is safe.

1. Her and her boyfriend were drunk so they wouldn't be coherent enough to pay, which means OP would've had too pay. 2. Most people would be too drunk to think of getting a cab, and would attempt to drive.

I think the concern isn't them getting arrested, 272, it's them getting seriously injured, or dying, or killing someone else in the case of a bad wreck.
