Whether it was just a bit of small bad luck or the worst day possible, we’ve all had moments when it seems like the whole world is against us. It happens, believe me.
Check out these 50 photos of situations you should be glad you’re not a part of (and maybe learn some lessons along the way).
While these might all make for a bad day, no doubt someone got a laugh out of them; they certainly had enough of a sense of humor to get a photo.
1. The stress mess
There’s nothing like getting ready for some skin self care…until it goes crashing to the floor. We’re just hoping no one tried to salvage any bits of lotion from the broken glass – that’s just a recipe for more disaster.
That is just so cruel. It’s one thing to see that snack slow down and start to look like it might get stuck in the machine, but then when you see the label you know it’s not meant to be. At least it’s funny for a second.
3. So much for that idea
Well, we can certainly see why this dog owner needed a solution for excessive chewing. On the bright side, maybe it worked and the dog is now REALLY discouraged from bad behavior.
4. Hitting the wall
This reader was just trying to read a story about walls and whether or not they change the way we think. Unfortunately, the New Yorker’s paywall prevented that. Walls definitely change the way we read!
5. Defeating the purpose
We’d hate to be the cyclist who tried to make their way down this bike lane. The sign is a nice reminder, but couldn’t it be less of a hazard?
6. No scissors for you
We can see why this person needed to purchase more scissors. But couldn’t the old ones do this one last job before self-destructing?
Breakups aren’t fun for anyone, but people applauding makes it a really bad moment. Check please!
8. Dance with caution
It’s a nice sentiment, but hopefully no one took it too literally unless they wanted to provide some nice security footage.
9. Travel fail
It’s all about the journey, not the destination, right? It certainly is in this case after a two-hour journey foiled by fog. At least she can say that she’s been there.
10. The perfect break
There’s not much you can do other than shake your head and snap a pic when you’re about to start a 7-hour plane ride and go to plug in your headphones only to find that the last pair had snapped off perfectly in the outlet. There’s no solving that problem, so we hope they’re at least a heavy sleeper.
11. Just another day at work
Do you stand back from the paint shaker at the hardware store? This is probably why. We hope she got to go home early to start washing that out of her hair.
12. A job well done
Not only is this a job poorly done but that’s not even a fortune! So much for a chance at good luck.
13. Flash flood
The weather is never 100% accurate, and it looks like this day saw some unexpected rain. The look on the dog’s face after his surprise bath is pretty priceless though.
We’re really wondering about the credentials of the dog training program this little guy graduated from. Do you get your money back when this happens?
15. Always be specific about your wishes
Have we learned nothing from genies in bottles? You have to be careful when you make a wish and be very specific about how you want it to happen.
16. Spelling success
If the only word you can spell correctly is illiterate, that means you’re not entirely illiterate, right? Can we count that as a plus?
17. He had it coming
We still wouldn’t want to be this guy trying to get out of the parking lot, but we definitely have some questions about his parking abilities. Chances are his skills will improve after this stunt.
18. Bad planning
Let’s just hope the person who hung these letters didn’t graduate from this school.
19. False advertising
Well that’s just not fair. It looks like the movie’s villian “Mr. Glass” had a hand in this.
Apparently, everything has its limit. Even the No Limits app.
Is it just us, or is this not the hand dryer we’ve been looking for all these years? So much for working properly.
22. Nothing is invincible
Even books with the title Invincible are subject to damage. On the bright side, it looks like it’s been read plenty of times – better a well-read book than a pristine one.
23. Not cool
Don’t you hate when the weather forces you to wear a jacket that ruins your whole look? This pic takes it to a whole new level. Guess he’ll have to be chilly or button up – there’s really no in-between choice here.
24. Define “non-stick”
This is going to require a good soak and some scrubbing, which is probably not what this person expected when they bought a non-stick frying pan.
25. Happy birthday from no one
We’re guessing that previous birthdays weren’t worth looking back on either unless Gary has made a lot of enemies in the last year. Aren’t algorithms smart enough not to bring up this message if no one is helping you celebrate?
26. The saddest day
That poor pizza. It looks like the rain made it too slippery for pizza night to be a success.
27. No day at the beach
Looks like someone will be riding home from the beach in their wet swimsuit unless they catch up with the furry thief that stole their shorts.
28. Watch those breaks
This snafu looks like it’ll take more than one person to clean up. Hopefully the photographer lent a helping hand to this unlucky driver who may have hit the breaks a bit too hard (and forgot to secure the door?).
29. Improper drainage
This is why it’s best to call in a professional. We’re not sure how one manages to install a sink with the faucet on the wrong side, but we hope they budgeted a bit more time for the project.
30. Pick a card
Well, if your dog is going to chew up any card, it might as well be the one you were going to blame on him anyway, right?
So much hard work undone by one simple misstep. At least the artist got a photo before their day went sideways.
What’s worse, finding out you’re wearing two different shoes hours into your day or wondering how many people noticed and just chose not to tell you?
33. Wrong button
It was a bad day to hit the sunroof button instead of the rear defrost. But if you’re snapping a pic, chances are you have some humor left in you over the situation.
34. Dress whites
Well that’s awkward. There are so many rules about how to wear a uniform, but we’re guessing split down the front seam isn’t one of them.
35. So lame
From flame to lame, this Ford Fiesta is a bit of an embarrassment to its owner now. Let’s just hope there’s some glue nearby.
36. Wake up call
Sudden sprinkler showers are the worst. But we’ve never had one hit us right in the face like this poor kid. That’s some great photo timing though!
37. Lost forever
You have to be careful about bringing your smartphone to the zoo. We’re pretty sure this one is a lost cause.
38. Scooter fail
There seem to be a lot of scooter accidents lately. But this one takes the cake since it threw its rider into freshly laid cement. That’s got to be hard to clean off.
39. Kite tent
And this is why you have to stake your tent into the ground properly. What goes up must come down – we just hope it wasn’t onto that nearby tree.
40. Out of toner
If you’ve ever gotten printer toner on your skin or clothing you are probably shuddering at this photo. We really hope no one was around when this happened, but the nearby shoe prints would indicate that someone had a very bad day at work.
41. Cleanup in aisle 4
It’s bad enough to have a pile full of broken glass, but did it have to be olive oil? That’s not going to be fun to clean.
42. No words
This is just a bad day all over. We hope this guy is ok, but we’re guessing the homeowner is beside themselves.
43. Not part of the recipe
People have all sorts of secret sauce recipes, but we’re betting glass wasn’t one of the ingredients here.
44. Sandwich fail
French bread makes a sandwich taste great, but those baguettes can be tricky. We’re guessing that you’d have to skip the condiments on this one.
45. Treat yourself
You might think anyone who holds out an ice cream cone in order to take a photo is extending an invitation to the local wildlife to take a bite. That’s certainly the case here and we’re pretty impressed that this former ice cream cone owner managed to hold onto the camera to snap another shot!
46. Going up
We don’t know how this happened, but just remember this guy next time you think you’re having a bad day at work.
47. Sweet 16
We’re not sure what’s worse, putting the effort into making cupcakes that end up on the floor, destroying the birthday girl’s treat, or having to clean up flaming cupcake while everyone looks on disappointedly. At least there’s a photo to look back on for a good laugh.
48. Savage stilettos
Anyone who wears heels knows you have to be careful around those grates. But sometimes they’re hard to spot until you’re accidentally wearing one. And one you’ve pierced it, it’s not easy to get off without ruining your shoe.
49. Ambiance fail
We know fire and electronics don’t mix, but who could have seen this coming? That’s one expensive mistake. We hope they saved their work before it went up in flames.
50. You got slimed
Most people still put a hand on top of the blender while making smoothies even if the lid fits tight enough because they’re trying to avoid exactly this scenario. Certainly not a great way to start off your day.
