Today, while staying at my mother-in-law's house, I came back from a family gathering to find that her dogs had ruined my laptop charger. This is after she assured me I didn't have to worry about them doing it. FML
I agree, your life sucks 3 703
You deserved it 630

CrazyTrainWreck tells us more.

OP here: 1. To the gentleman (or gentlewoman, didn't bother to check) who said I stole her little boy, no that would be girl. So yeah there is that. 2. I don't hate my mother-in-law nor does she hate me. Hell her family treats me better than my own. Now let me get on with the back story: We we're out there (in Texas from Arizona) due to my Mother-in-law getting remarried. We got a call that one of my in-laws was broken down and needed help, so I got up to help. I asked my mother-in-law if she could put my laptop and charger away. She told me I didn't have to worry, the dogs wouldn't chew it up etc but she would put it up. It's not a big deal apart from the fact they live in a small town in Texas and it's a bit of a drive to get to a store with new cords. With wedding preparations and all that, wasn't an option right away to get a new one. Hope that clears up some confusion though I'm sure I just created more. (Also this is my first posted FML, yay)

If you felt the need to be assured why not put it up before you left?

... and that is why she will be paying to replace everything.

your fault! never trust anyone's dog....

On the plus side, you now have a reason to hate your mother in law. Probably to go along with the other couple thousand.

Well, at least you know that the hatred is mutual...It looks like she hates you because she would have been careful with you belongings

If you felt the need to be assured why not put it up before you left?

When in doubt, don't leave it out!

Most men already know this, if you know what I mean ;)

To be fair, you did steal her little boy from her. You can't expect a lot of truth from her.

I have one just like and my dogs ruined it too. We had to replace it and they're not cheap.

Thanks FML for making my response look like one run on sentence lol

Sorry, the new gender icons are hard to distinguish on a phone screen. I like the old Venus and Mars symbols.

Too bad smart fones can't zoom in on gender symbols (esp via moving 2 fingers apart :-(

... and that is why she will be paying to replace everything.

If you had a dog you'd know that even the best and calmer ones can destroy things. It's stupid to be mad at her and even stupider to be mad at the dog. Just use your head next time

When mine go out I shop at amazon. You can find a cheap replacement there.
