Sometimes life just gets to be a little much. When you’re having a bad day, it’s never the big, obvious stuff that makes it bad. Instead, it’s always the spilling coffee on your shirt or stepping in dog poop that sends you careening over the edge from “doing just fine” into “total misery.” Here are a few photos from people who are having one of those really bad days.
Whether a hurricane deposited this boat there, or the owner really just didn’t want to pay to haul it to a scrap yard, getting the thing out of the dumpster is going to be just as much trouble as getting it in.
Besides a line 10 people long, this is the worst thing you could see when walking into Starbucks at 7am for your latte. This means that some exhausted barista tried to carry more than they could handle, and now they’ll be angry about cleaning it up, and your drink will not be made with love.
Nothing says, “I need more practice,” than taking a sports simulator to a physical training site. The iPad is specially reserved for athletes who, if equipped with a bowling ball, would be a public danger to themselves and others — and given the cast on this boy’s wrist, he learned that the hard way.
It looks like this bathroom stall has an elevator built in, which is equal parts terrifying and cool. Terrifying if it’s a functioning stall; cool if it’s a decoy stall and the elevator is the secret entrance to the Batcave.
Forget the fact that this dog just clawed through the drywall. It’s his face that’s creeping us out — he doesn’t even look like he broke a sweat, and that smile and those eyes are the farthest thing from sane.
He was supposed to protect us, and instead the dark side pulled him in to become one of them. Was he really to blame? Was he innocent, weak, merely a defective detector, or was he an intentional defector who escaped detection?
We’re thinking this one might be a setup. The chess board…the big, empty chairs…his perfect timing on the sandwich bite, right as the camera clicked. If it isn’t a setup, we feel for this guy, who’s clearly fed up with loneliness. Been there, done that, my friend.
Few things are worse than when, while you’re doing your business in a public restroom, the one thing that’s supposed to clean you up rolls away across the filthy, filthy floor. Then you have to do that weird little squat-waddle to retrieve it. No thanks.
So you’ve showed up to your friend’s house, and found out that his gaming setup is…small. You could try to squeeze in side by side, but the logistics just aren’t working, so you resort to playing human Tetris.
Of all the liquids on earth that could be dripping out of one’s electric sockets, we guess honey is the best option. It smells nice, and it collects all the ants in the house in the same place.
This Redditor was cooking up a potato cauliflower casserole when it slipped and fell in a totally unsalvageable way. We’re sure it would have been tasty, but according to their post, they had to order a pizza instead.
Raised keys? Sounds great! They’re so much fun to type on. Raised keys on a laptop, though? Somebody didn’t think this one through. What happens when you try to close the screen?
Well, that’s not something superglue can fix. We’re less concerned by the hole in the bottom of this mug than by the color of the coffee they were drinking. Maybe it was hot chocolate, and they hadn’t put the chocolate in yet.
If we’re lucky, the recipient of this card was a math teacher or something and not responsible for making sure students know the difference between your and you’re.
We’ve still got some embarrassing 2008-era Photo Booth selfies on our old Macs, but middle school us would have gone catatonic if our parents showed up in them. Maybe this girl just got all the self-confidence the rest of us were lacking in those years.
Yes, it’s true that you can use deionized water to clean motherboards and other electronics, but only after all power sources are disconnected, and only using deionized water. Not tap water. Not Dawn dish detergent. And you certainly wouldn’t want to use a sponge.
This person was trying to season their veggies when the top of the spice shaker came off. Now their casserole will smell like a Penzeys, although they could probably save it by scooping the top layer off with a spoon.
This exhausted person’s child either clearly didn’t get the message, or they blatantly chose to ignore it. But really, teeth definitely are for biting, unless you can come up with a better use, Elizabeth.
Somebody messed up at the Nestle packaging factory. Technically, you’d get more ice cream without the cone, but is it really worth it if you have to clean up rivulets of Rocky Road from your hands, forearms, khaki shorts, and porch?
Here’s another error brought to you by automated product manufacturing. What’s frustrating here is that even if you cut the stack of slices crossways and vertically, they’d still be larger than standard sandwich slices.
This diner likely got way more than she bargained for when she stopped to take a quick pic with her fancy cheesecake. Maybe the pose was too precarious, because instead of a smiling snapshot she got a tragic image of dessert in free fall.
Oof. This is gonna be a nasty spill. It takes a lot of guts to enter a motorcycle race, and we sure hope this guy’s unfortunate crash won’t discourage him from trying again in the future! Maybe with sturdier wheels…
This little boy has quite the grin on his face, but if he could see the massive owl seconds away from landing on his head, he might feel differently. We hope someone scared it off before it could make contact because those claws look seriously gnarly.
These people had a little too much fun with their homemade catapult—and it turns out that it worked a little too well! We certainly wouldn’t want to be the unlucky woman flying through the air. At least her friends look sufficiently concerned!
We’ve all heard of the science experiment where putting Mentos in soda leads to a crazy explosion of foam, but usually the trajectory isn’t straight into a child’s face. We hope this little boy likes cola because he’s getting a whole lot of it.
A person’s wedding day is often one of the most important days of their lives, so of course they’d want everything to be perfect. This bride and groom even asked their bridal party to hold up sparklers for them! What they didn’t anticipate, however, was the new hubby taking a huge slip down the aisle.
Boating is all well and good, and it seems like these people were having a pretty good day…at least until they noticed the massive whale lurking beneath their vessel. The massive sea creature may not want to cause any harm, but it certainly could!
When these waves surged past a barrier in China, people knew exactly what to do: run away. We can only imagine what the people on that bike looked like seconds after this image was taken — definitely not dry, that’s for sure.
Were the glasses too weak, or was the toast too strong? We may never know, but this ill-fated dinner and drinks is about to have way more than two casualties. We feel sorry for her jacket!
All this guy wanted to do was take a nice picture by the pool. He almost certainly had no idea that, right behind him, a woman was seconds away from falling backwards into the water. What a difference two seconds can make.
This pup clearly just wants to play, but it seems like he’s getting a little too rowdy…and a little too close. We don’t even want to see the aftermath of this photo because it absolutely isn’t going to be pretty.
Kids lounging on a beach side railing on a breezy summer day. What could go wrong, right? Apparently a lot. According to the boy in peril, the girl next to him had accidentally knocked him off the log mere seconds before the picture was shot.
This guy may not have intended to slap his fellow runner in the face upon reaching the finish line, but it looks like he was just really excited to be done! I mean, who can blame him?
Partying is all well and good, until some unlucky guest gets an entire cup of flat beer thrown on their head. We know it was an accident, but if we were the girl in pink we would not be pleased.
This guy likely knew what was coming when he had his friend smash a water balloon against his head, but that doesn’t make the shot any less fascinating. I mean, just think about the timing that had to be achieved in order to capture that spray!
Did someone throw this in her mouth? Did she toss the dog up and attempt to catch it herself? Did she fill up with mustard first? We have so many questions about this picture, and the one thing that’s clear is that sausage is definitely going to be falling on the floor.
This kid looks a little too mischievous for his own good. It might be possible that he simply didn’t notice his dad’s major slip-up going on in the background, but it seems more likely he’s amused by it! Who knows, maybe he even cut the rope himself…
And yet another picture taken seconds before the person photographed became completely soaked. This one’s even wilder though—I mean look at that hand placed perfectly on the surface of the lake! One more unanswered question: who on earth took it?
This family photo is about to turn a whole lot messier in a split second, but it seems as if the mom who spilled her drink on the little boy’s face is the only one aware of it. The kid just looks sleepy, and the poor dad is completely unaware.
This little guy just wanted some fun on the beach, and the adults in his life clearly wanted a picture to memorialize it! What they didn’t expect was the massive wave moments away from crashing down on him. Let’s hope they realized it in time…
Only a wizard could capture on camera the exact moment a balloon burst. But this smartphone user photographed the instance just seconds before bystanders cowered at the sound of a popping balloon.
Not pictured here are the six buckets of his own nervous sweat this anchorman had to dump out after seeing his face staring back at him from a WANTED sign.
Word to the wise? Don’t put soda in the freezer. Still, while the loss of a diet Pepsi might be enough to ruin this photographer’s day, at least the compression explosion created unique freezer decór.
Whether the dog knew he was peeing into the gaping mouth of a man on an unfolded cardboard is irrelevant. Internet strangers were still impressed by the boldness the dog showed in marking up his territory.
Clearly, the lady on the right didn’t read the morning Metro. If she had, she might’ve seen the headline informing her she was playing a game of Russian Roulette biting her nails like that.
The award for Wingman of the Decade goes to this bird, whose im-peck-able timing put him squarely between a traffic camera and the license plate of a speeder. Thanks, bird bro!
Had the driver parked two inches further back, the tree would’ve left a sizeable dent in the sports car’s hood. But to his relief, a finger-sized gap stood between him and the headache of an insurance claim.
When a birdwatcher needed more information on what appeared to be the Norwegian Lapland Longspur, ol’ Lappy herself showed her face. Clearly, she wanted to make sure the book had its facts straight!
While on vacation in Greece, an Australian man picked up a broken debit card…then immediately fell into the Twilight Zone. It was identical to his current card in every way—right down to the name! Was he living a secret life he didn’t know about?
Not to be outdone by the education-focused Lapland Longspur, this butterfly landed right on her picture. She had to show off her best angles. With wings like that, can you blame her?
Saying something over and over again no matter how much you want it to be true, doesn’t actually make something true. So sorry newspaper: this is a coincidence.
Hailing from Tampa, Florida—a city with postal code 33607—a marathon runner sporting runner ID 33607 finished the Rock’n’Roll Washington D.C. marathon…in 3 hours, 36 minutes, and 7 seconds—3:36:07.
Perhaps it was along this Canadian highway a photographer so inspired by the landscape—snapped a picture, which would eventually go on the back of a truck cruising down this Canadian highway. Talk about perfect timing.
These weren’t the bridesmaids. Rather, all six of these women, in an unlikely coincidence, wore the same dress to the same wedding. Chances are, it was on sale at the local mall.
The KFC on the license plate of this McDonald’s mobile subliminally told all who saw it, forget the golden arches; go see The Colonel instead. He’s finger-lickin’ good, after all.
There’s no perfect timing or angling required to snap a photo of a stationary man with an oblong head—but look closer. That’s actually two people. The photographer caught this photo the second they formed the oblong-faced chimera.
Just imagine this Mitsubishi driver stepping out of his car, locking eyes with the person he just backed into, shrugging and saying whoopsie! while pointing at his coincidental license plate.
