you’re fucking your life wrong

There aren’t many things people can say that will tweak my nerves, but the over-used “FML” (Fuck My Life) is one of them.  Because I spend an inordinate amount of time on Twitter, I constantly see “FML” being used to punctuate heart-breaking dilemmas like this one or this one or this one.  You poor dears; phoneless, sockless, and delayed by a train on your way to the store to buy thingsHow will you cope?!

Just once, I’d really like to see something worthy of an “FML”.  Let me give you a few examples, because Internet?  I happen to think you’re doing it wrong.

Be creative and sincere, people.  That’s all I’m asking.
