What does FAI stand for?

Forget about it

FAI stands for “forget about it”. It’s a way to tell someone to quit thinking or talking about a certain topic. This acronym is usually found in text messages or on the internet.

People often use FAI when responding to something that’s seen as silly or irritating. It’s just a quick and easy way to dismiss a subject or change the topic.

For a bit of fun, you could try saying it in a New York accent like “fugget aboudit”. This version of the phrase was made famous by the gangster film, not Donnie Brasco, but Goodfellas.
