What is it with FML??

I’m going to get on my soapbox for this one – no offense intended towards my younger generation friends. 

Sitting here with a purring cat in my lap, I ponder what FML really means.  I see the term used almost as often as LOL, but it has a way different meaning.  For those of you who don’t know what it means (don’t feel bad, when I first starting seeing FML on peoples FaceBook statuses, I kept trying to make it the abbreviation for FaMiLy, but that didn’t make sense, so I finally asked somebody) it stands for Fword My Life.

Let me tell you that the Fword is not one of my favorites (although, I must confess – I knew how to use it in my younger days – I just choose not to anymore).  It seems that the Fword has become an adjective.  F this, F you, WTF, Fing any number of things, etc.  But, FML – what does that look like?  Ok, no, let’s not go there.  What does a person using this term really mean?  This sucks? (Another nonfavorite word, and I did not use this one – actually I used it once last year and my friend almost fell over at the look of shock on my face – haha).  I hate my life?  Shoot me now?  I screwed up again?  Oh, no that’s “My bad.”  I guess I just don’t understand why anyone would even choose to use this phrase.  Sigh, I must be getting old.

It’s a difficult topic to write on, since I don’t fully understand why someone would use it or what it really means.  I just felt compelled to say – It makes no sense, it’s vulgar, and you are too wise and attractive to have that trash on your FaceBook page.  Okay, there – I said it.  Again, seriously, no offense intended, but maybe it’s time to come up with a different catchphrase.

Just Sayin’.
