Means something like, “I ALREADY HAVE ENOUGH PROBLEMS WTF LIFE ARE YOU SERIOUS RIGHT NOW. ARE YOU SERIOUS.” Said in exasperation when you’ve been having a horrendous day and then that one last thing happens that makes you want to shake your fist at the heavens. Regardless of gender,  everyone says ‘hya.’ I have absolutely no insight as to why.
