The ultimate slang to rant when the level of bad things has already surpassed HML. This is then some serious thing that needs fixing. FML also has another context with different scenarios. But all of them all leads down to one person being super frustrated.

There is never a collective FML. It always starts with one person and then goes on to other. One context to use this acronym is when you have just experienced something terribly embarrassing, and you are not sure how long will people take to forget it. Also, it can ruin your image. Now that is one severe FML.

The other context is when you end up associated with someone whose second name is trouble. Oops well, need I say more?

Use FML as a way to empathise with other people who issues that you can relate to. This can help you bond and also help each other out. Like a friend with money crisis. You can stop the FML in their life!
