Rip your pants?
Slip and fall on a wet surface?
Sneeze into your hands?
EPIC FA-…Well, you get the idea.
This phrase has woven its way into everyday conversation when someone makes a mistake. Sure, it’s traditionally not heard amongst 50-year old businessmen who are pointing out flaws in the other’s Excel spreadsheet, but the term shows prevalence in some sectors of society.

It’s like overusing the word “awesome”. After a while, the word loses its sheen due to the continued utterances of it from the overly-excitable and vocabulary-limited.
