Today, my girlfriend broke up with me. She said it's a good thing, because it was a "mutual decision", and that while she wouldn't mind staying together, I was the one who wanted to split, and she respected my decision. I wish I had been a part of this delusional conversation. FML

Hey, I am kind of astounded this made the front page, but I also realized that I wasn't logged in when I created and submitted this.
I'm the OP. I should have phrased this better, but I was running out of room to create the FML. The actual story is that she flat-out broke up with me, and then went around and told all my friends, which happen to also be her friends too, that it was a mutual break-up, but it was my decision for the most part that split us apart, which effectively framed me as the "bad-guy". When I confronted her on it, she first denied telling her (our) friends this, then changed her story to "she couldn't think of what to say". All this while her new "boyfriend" (of 1 day) was helping her move out of my apartment.
Sorry for the confusion in the phrasing.

Today, while at work, a man came up to me and screamed that I was the devil's child, pointing at the tattoo on my wrist the whole time. I just stood there while he prayed for my soul. FML
lovefortoday's comment about their FML
It was the one on my left wrist of a butterfly and flowers. The other one is a dolphin and flowers. I was unaware that butterflies and dolphins where evil. They were for my Mom and Step-Mom.

Today, I realized how poor I am when I had to use sharpies to color in the worn spots on my dress shoes before leaving for work. FML
bowser_rawr16's comment about their FML
OP here. Thanks lol. That's actually exactly what I was doing. I'm only 21, and I work in a very professional office, and I always need to look my best. I can't afford new shoes at the time, so that's why I sharpied them.

Today, I moved out of my apartment by the highway and airport, and into a new place below people who blast loud music, stomp their feet, and slam doors throughout the night. I haven't had a decent night's sleep in over a year. FML
SakuraFubuki92's comment about their FML
Well, I get disability because I can't walk well and am really sick so I barely make enough to put up my part of the rent, let alone move. My best friend/roommate has already complained.

Today, I was opening a present my boyfriend got me for my 21st birthday. What I unwrapped was a Kay jewelers box. Excited, I opened it to find a ring made out of a one dollar bill. FML
AkGirl1991's comment about their FML
This is the poster, and actually I had bought him a promise ring on valentines day. He used the box I gave him....I just thought. I might have been getting one in return. And no, I am not materialistic or ungrateful, and I know he can afford it. Just got my hopes up. If he had JUST given me the ring, it would have been great.

Today, my hatred for IKEA reignited when I rammed my knee into my hotel bathroom's plexiglass counter top while I was drying myself off. Their interior designer must have have been suffering brain damage when she matched everything with the floor tiles. FML
Skyra's comment about their FML
To the people that keep having a hissy fit about me hating IKEA — deal with it.
It's a matter of personal taste and I happen to dislike not only the design of their pieces but also the quality of their furniture; which is rubbish.
You like it? Fine, whatever. I couldn't care less. I don't like it and I'm not changing my mind just because you think I should like it. And, again, personally, to me, IKEA is overrated.
With that in mind, please feel free to hate me, or my furniture preferences, as much as you like; I'll be here in my little country having a life.

Today, I realized how bad my feelings of inadequacy compared to other women and jealousy are when I started thumbing down songs on Pandora simply because the cover art had a better looking woman than me on it. FML
Larentiah's comment about their FML
OP here. You guys, you make me laugh. I AM seeking help, I have a counselor and a psychiatrist and a loving boyfriend who is trying to help me get over these problems. I'm bipolar and have an anxiety disorder. I HAVE these problems (the inadequacy thing) because I've been cheated on many times in my past, and was ridiculed to high hell in all my years of school from age 7 to 18, and from truly horrible stepparents at home, culminating in my hospitalization for depression.
Some of things I've seen people say about me, I would like to answer. No, I don't give a shit about cover art with males, glad my other comments make you laugh?, isn't the point of FML to be a whining bitch to some degree, no I'm not forever alone: see third sentence of this comment, and lastly, I'm very aware I need help thanks: anything else obvious to state?
To those of you giving me encouragement - thank you, it means more than you know. For those of you insulting me and all the other rude comments - fuck off. Everyone has insecurities, it's not like I chose to have this happen to me.
