About the Book

Today, my boss fired me via text message. I don't have a text messaging plan. I paid 25 cents to get fired.Your girlfriend dumped you, your car broke down, your boss passed you up for the big promotion. Life's not fair, but there is one sure-fire way to ease your pain--laughing at someone else who had an even worse day than you did. Enter the devastatingly funny world of F My Life, where calamity is comedy. Covering every disastrous pratfall in love, work, family-life, and more, F My Life proffers other people's ruinous, real-life happenings to brighten your gloomiest day: someone getting dumped through a greeting card, ignored at their birthday party, or insulted by their own grandmother. Spanning everything from ironic twists of fate to down-right shameful moments, F My Life's squirm-inducing stories are schadenfreude at its finest. So today, take solace in knowing that at least you're not that guy. There now, don't you feel better?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. 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. 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."From the Trade Paperback edition.

Moments of shame: surviving embarrassment, thanks to self-mockery
It's just not fair!: you didn't ask for it, but you got it anyway
You shouldn't have even bothered: you made your bed, you sleep in it
Shit out of luck: in the wrong place at the wrong time
Rock bottom: just when you thought you'd hit a new low
The banes of our existence: when all that wrong with the world is condensed into one person.
