So as I enjoy my morning cup of coffee, I always check my facebook. Within the past 12 hours 13 of my 120 (I know them all) friends have FML in their status. The most ridiculous is “Let’s go hike in the 190 degree weather… humidity is at like 190%…and heat index says 1 billion. Fml.” Really, you chose to hike in that, I don’t think it is worth an FML, and these people that are posting it. Good jobs, good relationships. I know we are young, but this is the time for us to be enjoying our lives and living them to the fullest we can. WTF is up with people?

Lol, I’ll tell you. The heat is getting to *me*. I don’t use the expression ‘FML’ but I have posted some angry rants to fb lately. :X The heat+humidity makes people cranky. And maybe your hiking friend had planned to take this day to hike for weeks or something and was just really frustrated when she woke up and saw the weather forecast. I can relate. In NYC, where people walk everywhere, and where subway stations where you must wait for a train are even hotter and more humid (seriously…no air circulation), I feel like I want to either beat something up or die of exhaustion when I finally get back into my apartment in the a/c, because I’m dripping in sweat just from walking a few blocks at a normal pace. I know I’m not alone in this.
Even if all these people aren’t being driven loony by the heat/humidity like me, it’s probably just an unfortunate coincidence that a bunch of your friends are having FML moments all at the same time. It happens. People can have generally great lives but frustrating or bad things happen in the middle of them. You’ve seen the FML website, right? The general point of the posts isn’t usually that the submitter believes his entire life sucks. He just had something ridic happen to him in the midst of his life. Like most people.

sarcasm maybe? But it sounds a lot like some of the posts I’ve had popping up lately =]

@veganlam- It sucks so bad doesnt it?? You forgot to mention the oh so pleasnant constant stink because of the people who don’t use/believe in deodorant. With the crowds, there is no escaping it! I have to hold my breath sometimes because it’s THAT bad. This heat has definitely not been fun
I think FML isn’t used very seriously, just something people say when they are annoyed. Kind of like da** it. You aren’t REALLY dooming something to eternal punishment :p
