I HATE when people say "FML."
Let me start by clarifying: FML stands for "F*** my life." I feel like there are probably still people who don't know what it means, so I wanted to clear it up just in case.
So anyway, I hate it. Here's why.
People say this when there is seriously nothing really wrong.
Here are a few "FML" examples from a quick Twitter search.
- "They're working in the elevator in the building, so the lights have been flickering all afternoon. #fml"
- "Mall on a Thursday night #FML"
- "SUMMER BREAKK!!!!! for one week then summer school lol fml & all that jazz"
- "Perils of owning a vehicle...go in for an oil change n tire swap, then they find other stuff..over $1000 later #FML"
Poor baby! Your life is SO HARD.
I just don't really think you're considering the severity of what you're saying. It would be much more appropriate to say something like, "Oh shucks" in all of these situations.
