FOMO for those not in the NO, is ‘Fear Of Missing Out’
Sounds like a funny old thing to have, but I bet you know somebody who has chronic FOMO. And if you’re honest maybe you suffer from it yourself.
I think I might have done in the past, but now I’ve moved into the phase of “I haven’t got enough energy and leave me alone” phase!
A colleague of mine has it and can be quite anal when finding out about something he hasn’t been invited to. He whines like an old woman until he receives and accepts the invite, only to suddenly suffer with IOFOMO – I’m over fear of missing out – a day before the event. He then spends precious energy whining about why he doesn’t want to go, and often, inevitably, cancels and doesn’t pitch.
I wonder if FOMO and IOFOMO are on Discovery’s chronic benefits list yet?
