not fml worthy

I was checking out FMyLife the other day. The posts, which usually made me crack up, made me realize that these kids don't really know what Fuck My Life really means. None of the posts I found to be FML worthy. You know? Maybe it's because I always seem to be able to put a positive spin on things that make them seem better. At least for a little while. The younger generation seems to put an automatic negative mark across anything not in their favor instead of thinking for a minute on how they can spin this into a positive. Thinking means work. The kids don't like work. They'd rather just not think and do the automatic cool thing. And now, it's being negative and being down and depressed. Kurt was so before his time. I never thought being splashed with water by my next door neighbour as I was walking home on a hot day constituted as me saying "fuck my life" neither did me being caught making out with a girl by my parents. Just stuff that everyone goes through that end up being stories to tell the grandkids one day. It hurts for a few minutes, the following day we laugh about it and then we progress into the next embarrassing growing up story. That's what we call life. And that's for sure nothing to be negative about. Think about it.
