    The sign used to read F M L before someone realized what it could be expanded into. I fail to understand the point though – the new acronym can also be made to read a hundred different things.


  11. FML for the names of different lines .. inverted to avoid any comparisons to fmlife.com

    The Meme is “FML” .. the signs read “FML”

    The MTA NY has changed their new subway sign (representing the F, M and L lines at 14th Street)
    so that it doesn’t read as an internet meme “FML” ..

    “FML” is an adage whose origination is attributed to a
    website that collates and displays stories that readers send in of their weary and painful
    (and, for the misanthrope, painfully amusing) life experiences.

    New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) merged its “V” line with the “L” line, so signs that previously said “FMV” now say “FML”,an internet meme.

    New York subway changed FML to LFM, since FML is F* My Life

    NY’s MTA had to change the signage on 14th street from FML to LMF. Would’ve been awesomer if the next change was MLF :P

    FML changed to LFM

    The [new] FML combination at 6th Ave. and 14th St. is my favorite.” Because the MTA groups its subway bullets via trunk line on all of its signage — hence, ACE BDFM at West 4th St. — the signs at 14th St. where the L stops at 6th Ave. would all read FML, or Internet shorthand for, well, you know.


  24. FML meme

    Signs read FML prior to change
    FML stands for ##Please DO NOT expand acronyms in the answer## made “popular” by the website fmylife.com.

    FML (i’d expand that had you allowed :P) is the meme, i think and that’s what the MTA subway signage read earlier and they changed it to LFM.
