“Instagram Will Love This”
We all have that one friend that has to take a picture of their food every time you go out to eat. Well, as you can see, this woman appears to be that friend, and while she may think she’s showing off her delicious meal, she’s made quite a mess on the table that’s going to be pretty upsetting when she discovers it. Oh, the things we do to have an interesting social media presence. Just enjoy your food next time!
Have you ever seen a whale or dolphin stranded on the beach? Well, this is kind of like that, except, instead of a majestic sea creature being trapped above the water, it’s a car. And that car appears to be sinking into the sand, to be claimed by the sea and the beach for all eternity. What was the driver thinking, driving their car onto the beach of all places? Looks like there was quite a party in that car, so this must be a peach party gone wrong.
Thanks, Mr. Postman
We can’t tell if this postman is extremely clever, or a comedian in the making. You have to give it to him, being able to fit that box into that compartment can’t have been easy, though we wonder if he considered how difficult it would be to get it out. Seems like it’s stuck in there pretty tight, and the cameraman of this photo is probably going to have quite an interesting time trying to get it out. We’re also dying to know what’s in that package.
When Getting Gas Goes Wrong
Humans have a habit of making things more difficult than they need to be, and this person is the perfect testament to that. As you can see, she’s getting gas, like most people do when their car’s tank is running low. However, she doesn’t seem to realize that she can stick the pump into her car for maximum efficiency, and to prevent the gas from splashing everywhere, which can be pretty hazardous. But you do you!
Redefining the Carpool
This image reminds us of the postbox we saw a few entries ago. How on earth did that car get in there? Who put it there? Why is it there? Sadly, we’ll never know the answers to these questions, but it’s fun to speculate. What do you think is going on in this picture? Besides, of course, the car that appears to have been jammed into the back of that van. I suppose that’s one way of saving fuel.
Looks like there was a glitch in the Matrix here. Sometimes, you get so immersed in the rhythm and routine of certain tasks that you almost dissociate and perform that task without thinking about it too much. Apparently, that is exactly what happened here, and this person accidentally trapped the chord for one of their power tools in the boards of this construction project. Unless they plan on removing those boards (which were likely painstaking to put up), that’s the end of that tool!
If this picture didn’t induce anxiety the moment you laid your eyes on it, you must not be human. Or maybe you simply don’t know what a devastating combination these two items make. For those that fall under that category, when you drop a Mentos mint into Diet Coke, the result is an explosion of extremely fizzy soda, that usually ends with at least one person, or item, covered in the sticky sweet liquid. It’s incredibly fun to watch, but cleaning up the mess afterward is not so fun.
As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. And this picture clearly has one thing to say. As you can see, there are car tracks leading right up to that hole in the ice, which then abruptly stop as, presumably, the car took a dive in the frigid water. Or maybe we’re looking at this the wrong way. Maybe the car emerged from beneath the ice, and is now roaming around, well, wherever this photo was taken.
The Art of Construction
DIY home improvement and home construction, as you can see, is not for everyone. If you can’t tell, this person has just finished installing this door into that door frame. However, they’ve done in the wrong way, and know the door handle is on the opposite side to where it should, which will make opening and closing this door pretty tricky, to say the least. Once again, we see a case of not paying full attention to the task at hand, resulting in a hilarious fail.
There’s nothing more satisfying than giving old, dull wood a glossy new sheen with some high-quality varnish. It totally brings the room alive, and makes the whole space feel so much warmer and more inviting. Unfortunately, this lady didn’t anticipate that she’d be stuck on a dull-wood island surrounded by fresh, not-so-dry varnish. We think that she is probably going to have to wait there for quite some time, but at least her floor looks great.
Just a Trim
Devastating! Sometimes the universe sends us signs and messages – some, more clear than others. The universe, apparently, wanted this man to get rid of his beard, and the universe gets what the universe wants. That had to hurt, right? There’s no way having that much facial hair torn from your face couldn’t hurt. This guy doesn’t seem too impressed by what happened, but who would be? It probably took him a good three or four years to grow out that hair, and now, it’s all gone.
What Does This Button Do?
Well, now you know. Don’t open the sunroof during a snowstorm, kids! Or you might have your very own white Christmas in your car. While the guy taking the photo looks pretty pleased with himself, we can’t say the same for the person that he’s with. It looks like they’re desperately struggling to keep the snow out of their hair, and we don’t blame them. Who wants cold, wet hair? Certainly not this guy, since he came prepared with a beanie.
It’s Not Stupid if it Works
Here we have another example of a human making life difficult for themselves, where things could have just been simple and easy. They’ve used a bottle opener to open a bottle of wine that was sealed with a twist-off cap. If this isn’t the first bottle of wine that they’re opening for the night, then we can see how this confusion would happen – being intoxicated does that to you. Still, the bottle is open – albeit in a strange way – and the people can now enjoy their wine.
That’s coming out of his paycheck for sure. Looks like this dead person did not want to stay dead, or perhaps they were just upset with the driving of this man, and wanted to let him know. This is definitely not something you see everyday, so we can totally understand why the person behind the camera decided to snap this photo. Some things are just too ridiculous not to be photographed and shared with the world.
You Know What They Say About Watched Pots
They never boil. This one certainly won’t be, but not because it’s being watched. Let’s be honest, we’ve all been in this person’s position. You turn the stove on, put a pot or pan on one of the plates, and come back five minutes later expecting your food to be cooking away, only to realize that you have either put the wrong plate on, or neglected to put the stove on at all, and your food has just been sitting there.
The Minimalist Pizza
If you can never make up your mind about which pizza you want to eat, or you don’t enjoy most pizza toppings (or any, for that matter), then this is the pizza for you. It’s got nothing on it! Literally nothing. It’s just dough. We have to wonder about how this even happens. That pizza place must either be extremely busy, or the man cooking the pizzas must be playing some sort of prank.
I Thought This Only Happened in Cartoons
Bugs Bunny has it out for this man, it seems. In true cartoon style, someone appears to have dropped a piano on this man’s car, damaging both the car and the piano, beyond repair. At least it wasn’t a full on grand piano, or there might not have been any car left to photograph. The man in the photo looks just as confused and surprised as we do, and, correct us if we’re wrong, but is that a smirk on his face?
An Unfortunate Tan
He should have stayed in the shade. By our method of deduction, we suspect that the man in this picture was pranked. He fell asleep in the sun (fist mistake), so his friends decided to prank him by drawing lines all over his body with sunscreen, resulting in this interesting, impressionistic tan. We’ve all been sunburnt like this before, but how many of us have had patterns burnt onto our skin? Probably not many, though we’re not complaining.
Good Luck Getting Out of There
That’s got to hurt. Their bank account, we mean. That looks like one expensive accident. If you can’t tell, this person has driven their car into some freshly-laid cement, and it is now trapped there, probably permanently. No doubt that getting that car out of the cement is going to damage it further, and getting the cement out of the car will probably be challenging enough. You may as well just buy a new car.
Excuse Me, Officer
This trooper appears to have gotten into a high-speed chase as he was filling up his tank at the gas station. Then, once the chase was done, he decided that it was time to grab something to eat from McDonald’s. Looks like he brought a souvenir from the gas station with him in the form of the pump. How long do you think it took him to realize that there was a gas pump still hanging out of his car?
You Have the Right Idea
Sometimes, you have to come up with creative solutions to certain problems. This seems to be one of those creative solutions. By the looks of it, that shopping basket doesn’t have a handle on it, so it can’t be carried the normal way. But that didn’t stop this shopper, who simply took the entire rack with them, using it to hold their basket. Honestly, that’s pretty genius, even if it is hilarious to look at.
Perfect Fit… Almost
Let this picture be a testament as to why smaller cars are generally more efficient and practical. If you are looking for that luxury Kardashian experience, then go ahead, but just know that you’re probably going to have to deal with situations like this, where parking becomes more of a nightmare than it already was. We can only imagine that this truck is blocking the actual driveway. Yikes!
Didn’t See That One Coming
This is why it’s so important to always wear your seatbelt! This driver came to a sudden stop, probably because of a bad driver on the road, and the planks that they had in the passenger seat when flying toward the windshield, cracking it pretty severely. That’s going to cost a pretty penny to repair, that’s for certain. But at least they were able to get a pretty hilarious picture out of it.
Mayday! Mayday! This is why flying a drone around the house – no matter how small it may be – is never a good idea, kids. You could get it hilariously caught in your dad’s hair, like this picture. That has to hurt. And who knows how difficult it’s going to be to untangle that thing? Better off flying it around outside, where there are far fewer dad-hair-hazards.
