    Now is it me, or is EVERYONE using this nowadays? It just seems that every time I go on Facebook, someone is guaranteed to have a status update complaining about the most ridiculous little things and then ending it with FML. WHY?!?! Drives me nuts! For those who don't know what it means, it's 'F*ck My Life'.

    Do they think life is really that bad? Unless you live on the streets and the only way to pay for food is to rent your ar*e out to strangers, then you have no right to use it! Using it when you have a bad hair day is not the one! I kid you not, I saw one where they were half an hour late out of the office for lunch so was late in getting a coffee! Get some perspective people!

    I stumbled on this a while back and it's so true!


    fml: a word used by pr*cks to describe how terrible they THINK their life is, when it really could be alot worse.

    also used by people who believe that by saying the word, they will become cool just like everybody else.


    Pr*ck: "Yesterday my mom just bought me a mercedes instead of the ferrari that i wanted. fml"


    Rant over! :tapedshut:

    Well you learn something new everyday, I had not heard of that before.

    I must say that Facebook is rather depressing at times, when you see work colleagues constantly updating their profile with "I hate my life" statements.

    I would love to say "go get laid you weirdo" or similar, but you got to be so careful what you put on Facebook as it could be classed as workplace bullying.

    I think your rant is fully justified.

    I hate these stupid abbreviations, they make me feel old cos I never know what they mean! I spent a bit of time in hospital with my first daughter, and there I realised that no matter how bad your life is there's always somebody else who's life is worse. These kids just have no perspective on how bad life can be, because they haven't been there yet.

    Well I'm 26 and I didn't have a clue what it meant when I first saw it. Then when it kept cropping up I googled it to find out what people were actually talking about! But you're right... no perspective at all! You just want to put them in a situation where life is really, properly hard for them, and then see if they use it again!

    ROTFPMSL! I don't think you can take anything seriously on the internet these days, especially Facebook, and I'm a prolific user on that!!

    If FB was no longer here tomorrow, I think it's fair of me to use FML though!!! :laugh:

    I envy you so much right now! o what id give to never have registered for such a stupid networking site. I'd delete the account but i get most of my framing business from it so it helps that way but the amount of **** people put up! the most common status i get now is prayers about friendship and **** like that!. I'm always like ''ahhhh FML'' when I see those comments! :/ lol

    I aint on FB either, never have been and even though I get lots of pressure to get on it, Im not going to do it!!!

    My life is too busy and 'real' to be on a networking site, I would much rather meet and speak to people in real life.

    I know it has its benefits, from a business perspective or for long distance contact, but you have skype etc for that now dont you.

    I think realistically people just use it nowadays to be nosy!! (My opinion of course).

    I have heard so many stories of people breaking up and issues being caused by it, just not worth it.

    Oh and FML (back to the subject) they dont know the half of it!!!

    The worst status updates are the ones those women put up that go something like:

    I love my dead mum and my dead gran and my dead dad, if you love your dead family please copy this and put as your status update to show you love them.

    Every time I see this, FML!!

    I did just that at the comment below!

    As a rule, if I smile or snigger, then it's lol. If I actually laugh, it turns to LOL. If I start crying with laughter, then it's LMAO

    LOL!

    I'd like to get rid of my account, but I spend about 8-9 months of the year abroad, and I have quite a few friends that live abroad too. So FB is a good way for me to keep in touch with them. I dont have time to sit and Skype so the odd message on FB suits me perfectly.

    Literally have no idea WTF you just said! Lol

    Got to say though, I was putting my trousers on yesterday and when I went to do the button up, it came off. I just had to laugh and say FML lol

    Was getting changed at the Pool this morning when I thought I would sneak out a little fart, but it decided to go on for a fair bit longer, got louder and lasted about the same time it takes me to swim a length.

    Luckily I was in a cubicle so the women in the next cubicles didn't know who it was.

    However, it was the worst smelling gruff I have ever done, and I was trapped in the cubicle holding my nose and coughing.

    FML.
