Simple little acronyms have completely taken over the internet.  Most everyone who has done an instant message chat session or a text message on a phone is familiar with LOL, or laugh out loud, and BRB, be right back.  Acronyms have been around forever, some have slipped so far into our verbal dialect that we just say them without much thought, like FUBAR, Fucked Up Beyond All Recognition, ASAP, As Soon As Possible, and VIP, Very Important Person. 2007’s movie Superbad introduced the world to a new acronym, FML, short for Fuck My Life.

As with all good things, it has now become a website with short user submitted stories.  Matt made a tweet (@xcrament) late last night that had me full engaged, laughing and entertained for nearly a half hour. Let me share with you,, and get read to spend some time reading, laughing and feeling bad for random people you’ll never meet.

A few choice stories,

Today, this guy took me to Denny’s on a first date and used a 2 for 1 coupon. It was expired. I paid. FML

Today, my boss fired me via text message. I don’t have a text messaging plan. I paid $0.25 to get fired. FML

Today, I can’t decide what’s worse, my mom walking in on me doing the five knuckle shuffle, or the one hour talk the next day about how it’s perfectly normal and even she does it. FML

If you are brave enough, share your FML story!
