Today, while showering, I broke the cap off the shampoo. Not my shampoo, my roommate's. The $60 shampoo I swore I wouldn't touch. FML

Just say you knocked it over or something.

I'm assuming that's what happened...otherwise he/she really sucks at opening a bottle.

No one should buy $60 shampoo! I guess unless it was for something special or a sort of condition...

But it's everyones decidion what they want to do with their money and also I don't think op intentionally used their shampoo. It was probably an accident aswell.

It‘s not only a broken promise. Where I come from this is called stealing.

I'm guessing OP probably knocked the bottle over instead of purposely using it.

This is why when I'm dorming, I take my shower products back to my room.

Promises aren't the only thing OP is breaking

Your roommate deserves it for spending $60 on shampoo.

Why is this down voted it's actually sensible

So basically if my friends bought something expensive, I have the right to break it and think they deserved it?

16- it got down voted because even if it sounds like a waste of money (like I personally wouldn't buy something like that) but it was the roommates money and they have the right to buy whatever they want. Op shouldn't have been messing with the roommates stuff to begin with.

Ummm... has no one in this comment section heard of allergies? My mum has to buy this ridiculously expensive deodorant cause she gets horrible, painful rashes from normal stuff and has a medical problem that causes excessive sweating so showering like twice a day or something isn't gonna help either. Y'all need to shut the **** up with your bullshit "Her fault for spending $60 on shampoo". Not every expensive thing someone has is a senseless purchase, and sometimes it's necessary for them.

Exactly! My father has reoccuring seborrheic dermatitis on his scalp because of his super-sensitive skin and needs to use an expensive shampoo for like 40$ or something. A friend of mine has chronic extreme dandruff and red patches on her scalp because of her allergies, and the only thing that helps is a shampoo for 80$, so y'all should reconsider your healthy scalp privilege. Not everyone gets to go through life using 2$ shampoo and staying healthy, they have to live with consequences we never have to deal with.

Well sometimes people can have something wrong where they need special shampoo, my sister for example has psoriasis and needs a certain type so that her head doesn't get bad.

34 - Why would OP use his ROOMATE'S medical shampoo?

#3 Your "logic" makes my brain thingy hurt.

So because somebody can afford nicer things than you that means it's okay to use or break it..?


also another idea here. Maybe she works in the hair industry? If having good hair is your job then spending $60 on a good shampoo makes sense.

commenters - although good point about the medical shampoo, why would OP use a special shampoo for an illness/allery she most likely doesnt have? that doesnt make any sense.

Has nobody on here ever knocked every bottle in the shower off the ledges before? It can cause some damage

So much ******* hostility in these comments. I spent about $35 on my shampoo and $35 on my conditioner. (Headbanging is just so much better with softer and better feeling hair). Now, I would be pissed if someone I told specifically not to used my shampoo. However, a broken cap is nothing to get upset about. Shit, even the caps on my shampoo have broken. As for spending that much money on shampoo? Why not? Great hair is something great to have. (There is absolutely no way I can put that and NOT have it sound gay ot feminine. No I am not gay or feminine.) People really need to stop making assumptions. We only have one life, and its quite ephemeral. It really isn't worth it to waste time being upset about a cap being broken.

**** it its just shampoo maybe your roommate should keep their shit in their room. And you shouldn't be touching other people's shit aha.

Why should the roomate have to keep the shampoo in his room?

If I ever lived with someone that stole from me I would kick their ass out sooo quick, not start hoarding my stuff in my room. That's ridiculous.

soveryunoriginal 23

Yeah, maybe you should learn how to not touch other people's belongings. YDI

Who said they touched it on purpose? Their elbow could have bumped it causing it to fall over and the cap breaking.

soveryunoriginal 23

Well I'm sure if that were the case this wouldn't be an FML, now would it? But who knows, I could be wrong, since OP didn't really specify.

No need to be a ****. I knock my shampoo bottles by accident all the time in the shower.

DeltaDragonxx 20

41 it still would be an fml. She most likely would've stated that in said fml, so i doubt that that is how it happened though.

Why not keep your hands to yourself? I won't lie... The look of panicked desperation on your face was a hilarious thought in my head.

ThePandoricaOpen 18

Why are most of you assuming OP touched it on purpose? They could have just as easily bumped it. And OP, I'm sure your roommate just doesn't want you using any of it, as getting pissed at someone for breaking the cap is just ridiculous.

TabooSushi 24

Not necessarily. I've broken many a shampoo/body wash cap merely by bumping into it and having it fall to the shower floor at just the right angle to shatter the flip cap part.

I'm sure then the FML would either not exist or it would be more about how the roommate reacted.

I think most people are assuming OP touched it on purpose because of the way they worded the FML. It doesn't make much sense for OP to specify that they promised not to touch/use the shampoo, unless they went and did just that. Otherwise the only problem would be the price, because OP could easily explain to their roommate that they merely knocked it over by accident. That being said, while I agree with people that it's likely OP was touching it, it is still just speculation so we never know.

To be fair.. you were asked not to use it. Karma.
