There's a reason the saying "been there done that" exists—it's to make us all feel better about all the mistakes we've made in the past. Normally we just make them, take a quick look around to make sure nobody has just seen, and then move on with our lives and try to repress the embarrassing memory. Unfortunately, these people can't do that.
Here are some people caught in the middle of a moment of chaos and there's nothing they can do about it. These photos capture the horror, shock, and pain they're feeling in the moment, but it's nothing compared to the embarrassment they're going to feel later.
Right Before She Broke Up With Him
This concert is probably the last time that these two are going to be together in public.
The moves this man is making are probably great on the dance floor but not so great in the long run for his relationship because she's going to electric slide out of his life.
The Downward Cat Pose
This cat is not exactly the workout buddy that this woman needs in her life.
It's not really encouraging her to reach her fitness goals by trying to claw out her eye the moment she goes into a pose.
When The Pizza Hits The Floor, That's Amore
These two were on different wavelengths when this photo was taken. The girl is clearly the master chef who's concerned about how her creation turned out.
The guy? He's just there to pose for a picture and eat the pie. At least he got to do one of those things.
Maybe Four People Was One Too Many
This family took a risk and boy did it almost pay off.
This dad decided that today was the day to really compress his vertebrae and bond with his family at the same time. If the kid survives the fall I'd say he's accomplished that goal.
The French Fry Avenger
This lady probably isn't going to regret her decision to fight this gull, but this gull is definitely going to remember this day as the last time it tried to poach french fries off humans again.
The chokehold is the reason the gull is sticking to hanging out near trashcans from now on.
Selfie? Perfect Time For A Fly To Land On Your Face
This is exactly what you'd expect would happen. Honestly, the one time you try and look cute a fly goes and lands on your face.
It's basically the law of the universe for people with crummy luck. Poor girl can't even play this off as a beauty mark.
The New Groom Who's Really Using His Head
Picture this: you just got married, you're happy, you're celebrating with your friends and they decide that the only thing the ceiling needs is you hanging from it.
It's definitely an honor to be considered for such a huge renovation job, but it makes the reception a little awkward with you just hanging out there.
She Believed She Could Fly...
Turns out, just because you believe you can do something doesn't mean that you either should do something or that you can.
This girl is flying high on the power of her positive thinking alone, but she's about to find out it's also about to be her downfall.
The Wet Willy That Will Haunt You
Just looking at this picture makes me want to vomit. This is the most cursed version of a wet willy that I've ever seen.
This dog is digging its tongue right into the nightmare center of her brain where the memory is going to stay for many years.
A Good Day On The Boardwalk—Oh, Nevermind
This seagull is really here to completely wreck this guy's fun day out at the beach. The worst part is the gull didn't even ask before taking a bite.
Where's that chokehold lady when we need her?
The Fish That Kept Swimming... Right Onto The New Lawnchair
This fish was made to dance, and dance it shall.
This guy flopped right onto the lawnchair its new owner was sitting in just to show the guy how to cut a rug even when you're lazing around.
Baby's First Flight And First Splash Mountain Experience
This is rule number 90027 why you shouldn't take small children and babies on planes.
If they're too young to form memories don't take them on your Italian vacation because it's not going to give them any joy and they'll probably do this on the flight over.
The Tennis Champ That Was Stronger Than The Trophy
This is tennis champion Marat Safin holding up a trophy he just won that immediately decided to fall apart.
I could say something insightful or funny about this, but instead, I'll let the guy in the lower right-hand corner's face do the talking.
It Is A Fair Question
I feel bad for all the people in this picture. First, someone is eating donuts in the bathroom.
Secondly, there are donuts in the bathroom that are not being shared. And third, why take a picture? Let them snack in peace.
This Kid Is A Vegetarian Now
The first time this kid met a buffalo is also the last time this kid ever thought about eating meat again.
The buffalo just wanted to quickly explain the benefits of eating a meatless diet to this child, but the kid really didn't need any convincing after this.
The Bride Who's Going To Need A Dry Cleaner
Imagine saving up so much money to have a nice wedding and you go and spill an entire beer on yourself.
Honestly, knowing me, if I'd be lucky enough to land true love that's probably where my luck would run out and I'd end up spilling a drink, the whole buffet, and the chocolate fountain on my dress.
A Facial Courtesy Of A Volleyball
This volleyball came in hot and with a purpose right into this girl's face. She wasn't really ready to attend her facial appointment but this volleyball decided that she most definitely was.
It also heard sunscreen was a great moisturizer.
We Have So Many Questions
What kind of mistakes do you have to make in your life to end up wearing a full suit holding a sewing machine in front of a crashed UPS truck?
Do you think that he is to blame for this?
The Bald Spot Landing Pad
This airborne dog decided that there was no time like the present to start in on its flying lessons.
It really wants to soar like the birds it chases do, so dad's head is the makeshift landing pad that it's going to use. I'm sure he didn't appreciate it.
There Is Some Weird Photoshopping Happening Here
I'm not sure what exactly happened in these pictures but I do know that something just isn't right...
No one has a migrating mole that transfers from person to person like that.
This Is Why We Listen To Wet Floor Signs
Wet floors have been decking people for as long as humans have been around to be decked by them.
This girl quickly figured out this essential truth of the human experience and it only took a few broken teeth to get there.
Playing Catch With Dad... And His Face
The helpful dad was just trying to get his son a little more involved in sports.
The only problem with that is that the kid's body stayed uninvolved while his face gave 110%.
The Cone-Stealing Clucker
The last thing anyone wants is to have is a chicken ruining their day by stealing a cone... especially one that's chocolate-dipped.
Maybe the chicken thought it was taking back the other kind of drumstick.
Cat Or Launchpad?
This cat decided that best friends also make the best springboards.
The other cats probably weren't in agreement about that fact, but they closed their eyes and just tried to go to their happy place. Which, by the way, has significantly more tuna and fewer feet in their faces.
The Gnarliest Fall
This man heard that the latest skating move was actually just folding himself into a pretzel.
Sure, it requires breaking your neck only slightly, but he'd do anything to get Tony Hawk to notice him.
Half A Second Before He Got A New Group Of Friends
Look at how calm this water looks right before this man absolutely took a dive into it.
It's completely unaware that a big man with a big plan to create a splash-zone is coming along to mess with it.
The Group Photo That Turned Into A Group Shower
You can see this girl realizing she's screwed up just as the other girl looks like she's wondering why it feels like it's raining all of a sudden.
Depending on how much time she's got before the girl turns around, she might be able to convince her that this is the one and only time that rain kinda smells like beer.
Perfect Day For A Ride Straight Into The Lake
This man looks like he was having a great day—until this.
He was off on a fantastic journey right up until he caught a pebble wrong and his day, and his bike, took a nosedive right into the river. Hey, at least he won't have to clean his bike anytime soon.
The Three Pointer That Came In Like A Wrecking Ball
Whoever threw this basketball clearly has the arm of the Hulk. They chucked it with enough speed to break the glass and after this they're moving on to the sound barrier.
This is like if the Avengers turned to Globe Trotting for a little extra income.
She Tried To Pet A Chicken And It Gave Her A Karate Lesson
This is the last time this girl ever tries to pet a chicken and coincidentally the last time she ever wears this hat.
This chicken is aiming for that cute pink hat and looking to shred that thing up. Must've not been a designer brand the chicken liked.
The Raccoon That Invited Itself To A Picnic
This is what we all wish we could do when we see people eating at a picnic that we wish we were at.
Just slowly sneak up and steal some food. Unfortunately for humans, that usually ends up with an angry uncle chasing after you and a trip to the police station. It's hard being a human.
The Person Who Got A Memorable Lesson From Plastic Fruit
So what do we do when food looks too good to be true? We carefully examine it before eating to see if it's plastic or not (because it probably is).
This mango gave this person a rude awakening.
A Perfect Fall Day And A Perfect Day For A Fall
This kid just loves fall so much that he wanted to be in it, a part of it, and just be consumed by the spirit of the season itself. He loves it so much that he's even willing to risk folding himself in half to do the job.
That's way more than any one of us can say we'd do for the season, even if we are fans of pumpkin spice lattes.
R.I.P., Little Duck
It's shocking the number of people who forget that things melt when they get hot and just because they're sitting in your car doesn't make that not true...
It almost makes it more true.
How Is That Undercover Operation Going?
Any kind of stealth operation they are trying to get going here is absolutely gone.
In fact, they're probably drawing a lot of attention to themselves with the whole pantsless thing.
Why Is It In The Fridge?
Is anyone else thinking that it's kind of weird that they would let all that glue just sit in the fridge in the exact place where you would leave the milk?
It Was An Honest Mistake
It looks like they forgot to put the drain plug in.
The good news is that it's a boat and it will probably dry out to be OK, right? Or is that just not true and this is a disaster?
We Call This Piece "Abandoned Scooter"
This person was so upset by their little mishap with the wet concrete that they just left the scooter and probably went to hide somewhere until the embarrassment from the moment passes.
We can relate.
Of All The Ways To Lose A Phone
Imagine trying to tell people that you lost your phone by dropping it into a crocodile enclosure at the zoo?
Even if they told one of the zookeepers, they'd probably say "sorry, that's gone now."
This Person Right Here...You're The Worst
If something like this happened to you, you'd have no choice but to really wonder if the world was really out to get you that day.
Also, that probably hurt.
He Clearly Failed That One
How do you explain that to your professor?
Sorry, I just got my days mixed up and wouldn't have realized if my friend didn't text me to let me know?
Candles And Electronics Don't Mix
To be fair, it was probably hard to see how close the top of the computer was to the candle when they were working away.
They just figured it out after it was too late.
"Check Out This Sweet Trick"
This guy was probably showing off some sweet moves to people who were watching and then, right when he got too cocky, the front wheel flew off.
Does that mean karma is real?
