I know what SNAFU means, but what about these...

This is a discussion on I know what SNAFU means, but what about these... within the U.S. Military Services & Veterans forums, part of the Protect & Serve category; I know these two military terms, SNAFU and FUBAR, but what does FIGMO and BOHICA mean?...

Not military, but I've heard them before:
Bohica: Bend Over, Here It Comes Again
FIGMO: F-It, (I) Got My Orders (I think that's it)

ETA: Found something online, I guess I was close to right: http://aboutlanguageschools.com/lang...ry-slang.asp#f

That's how I remember it. You posted a copy of your Orders on your door, and you were automatically exempt from dorm duties like common area clean up.
