My Twistori obsession has subsided and I am now fond of wasting my time at Fmylife.com. I’m still flying high from the news in yesterday’s post, so I’m not feeling particularly schadenfreude-istic right now. That being said, I still get a kick out of FML.
According to the site…
Fmylife.com contains a daily dose of short anecdotes, based on a simple recipe: in a few sentences, users can tell everyone the shitty moment which ruined their day. These short stories must begin with “Today” and end with “FML”. On top of being a huge release for the person telling their story, delightfully proving that “f*** ups” happen to everybody every day, fmylife.com also aims to be funny for everyone involved, as well as a way to share your misfortunes with other unlucky individuals, bearing in mind that self deprecation and a sense of irony are essential!
Many of them cause me to lol and smh. Here are a few random fmls.
Today, while at the Golden Gate Bridge, I spotted a large group of asians trying to take a picture. Trying to be a diplomat, I slowly say “You... want me... take picture?” while using hand motions. The man looks at me and says “No thanks asshole. I got it.” in plain english. FML
Today, I was mowing the lawn of my brand new house, located in a very nice neighborhood (I am a hispanic male), and a lady in her nice white cadillac drove up and asked me, in extremely broken spanish, if I could mow her lawn too. FML
Today, I babysat for two little girls, who wanted to play ‘mermaids’. I smiled, and said that I would love to play with them. The older girl laughed, saying “You can’t be a mermaid. Mermaids are pretty.” FML
Today, I got a letter from Princeton that said i got accepted. I jumped for joy screaming at the top of my lungs.My little brother walks in laughing with his camcorder on record. He played a joke on me and gave me the real letter. I was denied. FML
Today, I texted my college boyfriend to tell him how terrible I felt about cheating. He replied saying he was so relieved because he had been cheating on me with a girl in his dorm. I was talking about my math exam. FML
