When you're discussing dilemmas and SNAFUs, FUM stands for "f***ed-up mess." This three-letter acronym is used to refer to situations that are AFU.
If you don't want to use the strong language that FUM implies, you can instead refer to a problematic state of affairs as a dumpster fire or hot mess. If you want to assure someone they'll be able to straighten out a FUM, you can fight fire with fire by telling them to CTFD.
This is one FUM we're in right now!
|FUBAR||Fouled up beyond all recognition|
|FUSIT||Fouled up situation|

|SUSFU||Situation unchanged, still fouled up|
|Dumpster fire||Total mess|
|Hot mess||A disastrous person|
|AFU||All f***ed up|
|CTFD||Calm the f*** down|
Fum is a football abbreviation that refers to the total number of fumbles by a player or team. It is used as a statistic in football and counts as negative points in fantasy football.
A fumble is when a player has possession of the ball but loses control before he is considered down, which would end the play. A fumble may be recovered by the team that fumbled it but if it is recovered by the defense it is considered a turnover (FR). The fum abbreviation is similar to the int abbreviation, which refers to a turnover by way of a pass that is caught by the defense.
