What started out as a free-form exchange for all things hellaciously embarrassing and ridiculously crude has evolved into a hilarious book that may make you feel better about your crappy life. F My Life, a spin-off of the blog Vie de Merde (French for shitty life) is a collection of stories centered on one universal truth: We all have shitty days. Moments of unequivocal stupidity jump off the page as a daughter-in-law asks her mother-in-law for some cock, co-workers get friendly with flavored condoms, and a man is divorced on Facebook. Damn those social networking websites!
FMyLife.com, Vie de Merde's English counterpart, is an open forum where people post perverted tid-bits and unfortunate events for a good laugh. The book, F My Life (published yesterday), cherry picks some of the site's most outlandish stories:
Today, my boyfriend broke up with me. I cried and told him that I loved him. He gave me a quarter and told me to call someone who cared. I threw the quarter in his face and ran. I waited for the bus, but when I got on, I realized I was 25 cents short of the fare. I walked home in the rain. FML.
Today, my mom walked in on me looking at a 1978 Playboy. She asked if I found it in the basement.I said yes. Then I realized she was the centerfold. FML.
Today, I got in line at the grocery store. The woman in front of me looked right at me, turned to her friend, and said That reminds me, I forgot to get acne cream. FML.
While vastly entertaining, pages and pages of body odor anecdotes and text-message divorces can get a little played out. For some readers, though, there might be instances where the stories feel too familiar, in which case you should put the book down and step away from the ledge. After reading some of the more extreme scenarios, one naturally starts to question their authenticity. (I mean, is it even legal to fire someone via text message?) Regardless, the self-proclaimed gold mine of crap and embarrassment is really funny, and makes for great, uh, toilet reading.
