A Daily Dandy Public Service Announcement


You know we've all had "one of those days" when everything goes from bad to worse. Yesterday was a prime example of one of those days. While I was driving my daughter to and from and all over God's creation, trying to get the kids to their closely scheduled activities on time, I uncharacteristically began complaining about how much my life sucked. Fear not, my little cherub seemed to say, for she had just the answer for her over-stressed mom.

"You need to go to F My Life.com," she said.

"What did you just say?" I responded, in no mood for sass or games.

"It means F-my life. It's a website where people share their stories about how 'f-ed' up their lives are. Some of them are hilarious and really make you feel so much better about your own life," she explained.
I paused for a moment to ponder the reality of my 14 yr old recommending to me, quite matter-of-factly, a website with one of The Seven Dirty Words represented by it's letter in the title. Of course the blogger in me saw this as a great research opportunity and I listened intently as she extolled the virtues of the airing personal rants with the world. I weighed my options; mother teaching opportunity vs. blog fodder. Guess which won?

Then I visited the site www.fmylife.com.

It's not like I don't waste enough time on the internets and this site was no different.
Some examples I encountered that cracked me up while there included:







Needless to say you need to check this out for yourself and if you are a regular user of FML, let me know if it succeeds in bringing you the satisfaction of laughing at yourself when it's just about all that's left to do. I have to admit to spending more time on the site than I expected, as I could completely relate to having more than a few," f my life moments" myself.

Gwen said...

Oh, man! A couple of those made me cringe.

Sounds like a Jerry Springer or Maury Povich show done in words... and that seems like an oxymoron.

I'm sorry, reading about people's tasteless screw-ups creeps me out - sort of like finding another circle in Dante's Hell or Twittering from the Twilight Zone.

Heff said...

I'm going to PASS, in fear that my posts would be WORSE than others, lol !

BeckEye said...

I'm convinced that there are people whose lives suck so bad that they actually make up stories on sites like that. But I'm jaded.

The dude who ran over the kitten should have just picked it up and eaten it. Christ almighty. His black heart has black heart has already been served up to Satan.

And I'm not talking about that guy who plays hockey for the Sabers.

Cora said...

Oh, too funny! Although the kitten one about killed me. *sniffle*

Joanie M said...

My life seems better already!

SkylersDad said...

Yeah, the kitten story took the prize here.

wigsf said...

Those are awful.
Awfully funny.

Now, all I have to do is come up with one of my own. Who cares if it's real. I just have to work on some real good bullshit.

I can't imagine the kitten story actually happening but the little boy in the first one...well...I think I would have given him the What for! As if a kid with a moth like that would care!

O.G. said...

This is disturbing, but worth checking out. Thanks!

Oh, and thanks for stopping by MY blog!

Julia@SometimesLucid said...

How funny!! I can't wait to go home and get on that site!

Chaka said...

Thanks for the link. Those are extremely funny.I like how they keep them short and to the point. Reading those is like a dose of grattitude that it happened to them and not you.

The Dental Maven said...

Wow. A site started by the French no less!

Sass said...

I guess it may serve to make us feel more normal???

Yuck. That's all I can say. ;)

Fancy Schmancy said...

Wow, I'm never going to have to post on my own blog, again. Thanks!

It's Just Me said...

I will have to come back to this - it needs all of my attention and I will use it for a morning laugh I think!
