Verb. Used among some ebay sellers as a method to ship coffee mugs. First the mug is wrapped in tissue, then padded in bubblewrap, then boxed and placed inside a USPS padded priority flat rate mailer.
I fomo'd the mug, so it cost about six dollars less to ship.

Fear Of Missing Out-
(I am the originator of this term back in 2000)
It's true definition is:

To be in one location yet have an overwhelming feeling that something really great is happening elsewhere...

thus you must leave one party to attend another... only to discover that you are still plagued by the fomo at the new location.
Burning Man gives me bad FOMO... actually all festivals do.
