Roughly translated as "Life's a Bitch," the site receives over 1000 mini-anecdotes daily of pain-in-the-arse everyday events that people want to bitch about.
The blog has become such a hit that the acronym VDM has become a part of colloquial language in a large segment of the population.
Here's an example of one VDM:
"Aujourd'hui, j'ai reçu 2 sms de ma copine. Le premier pour me dire que tout était fini, le second pour me dire qu'elle s'était trompée de destinataire. VDM"
"Today, I received two text messages from my girlfriend. The first to say that she was breaking up with me. The second to tell me that she had sent the first text message to the wrong person. VDM"
So if you want to be really hip when speaking French, you can now use, "VDM" (vay-day-em) as a tag line when referring to one of life's little aggravations.
