Things are really f***ed upCensored
How is the planning coming along?
Well, TARFU to say the least.
|SNAFU||Situation normal, all fouled up|
|SUAFU||Situation unchanged, all fouled up|
|FUBAR||Fouled up beyond all recognition|
|FTFY||Fixed that for you|
TARFU is a military acronym similar to SNAFU which means the situation is not good or things are not going well. Most people use TARFU in texts or online messages when describing the dire status of something, like a school project or wedding reception.
For example, if you are directing the school play and the kids still don't know their lines two days before dress rehearsal, you might say it is TARFU. Or, if you are planning an engagement party for your friend, but she is sick, and the catering fell through, you might say it is TARFU.
