The universe has a funny way of playing tricks on people. Most of the time, you can chalk it up to "character development," but many won't see it that way.
The trick is to think that everything happens for a reason, no matter how unfortunate. Here are some misfortunes people experienced that created a great story.
"Was Pulling A Jacket Over My Head And The Zipper Got Caught"
The kids who used to flip their eyelids inside out and show you on the playground are probably in jail now. This man didn't ask for that treatment, it just happened.
I don't know how much this one hurt, but it looks pretty painful. Those zippers can hurt more than you think.
Tough Day For Him
This man was very bold trying to swoon a woman who had eyes on his funds. He must've thought he had more in the tank than that.
The only place he can take this teller is to Wendy's so he can get two Four for $4 deals. Sounds really tasty.
"Mother-In-Law Just Served Me This Piece Of Cake"
I'm unsure if this person should feel threatened by this slice of cake or not. If the in-law did this on purpose, then it's time to ring the alarms.
If someone wants you to die, there's nothing funny about that. Maybe this person still needs to earn some trust.
Shouldn't She Be Lisa?
Doing your research before trying something new is the best bet for anyone. You never know when you'll turn yourself into a cartoon character like this young lady did.
She probably thought the mask was doing the job until it was time to take it off. I wonder how long she was like this.
Phone Was Stolen In London, This Is Where It Was A Week Later
If your phone gets stolen in London and ends up in the Middle East a week later, you better hope the feds don't come looking for you.
There's no telling what they were doing with this iPhone, but there is a chance it was illegal.
"This Squirrel Stole The Croissant I'd Been Saving"
This is straight out of a cartoon. A wild animal stealing your food when you aren't looking almost sounds fake, but it happened here.
That little friend must have expensive tastes if it's out here taking croissants. Whatever happened to nuts?
"My Popcorn Got Stuck So I Tried Buying The Chip Bags On The Top"
This person tried to use their brain to secure their original purchase, but the universe had other plans. Looks like a waste of a few dollars, but that isn't too bad.
What's funny is that this picture will live on forever. Let it serve as inspiration to anyone who thinks they can attempt something similar.
"Well There Is A Water Snake Living In My Toilet Somehow"
What would you do if you opened the toilet and saw this guy staring up at you? Chances are you wouldn't believe it at first until it started to move.
Then, you'd let out a scream and shut the lid. I would hate to get put in a situation like this.
"Paid Extra For A Window Seat"
She might've missed out on the window seat for the flight there, but she's going to get reimbursed a great amount.
That's something she can look forward to on her way back. If she paid extra, they need to give her more back.
There Goes The Bike
One hour later, someone decided to send a bike flying. To be fair, you probably shouldn't have parked your bicycle in that spot.
Sadly, that bike might not be ridable anymore. It's at least seven feet in the air, hanging in a tree.
"Got Stung On The Lip By A Wasp Getting The Ol' Christmas Tree Out"
Wasps aren't our allies and I'm convinced. This man will probably never look at a bee the same ever again.
He might think a harmless bee is ready to sting him, but it isn't. A wasp will do what it will whenever it wants.
"The Plumber Left Me With This Awesome Little Window"
Your plumber should do the job for free if they leave something like this on your wall. They should've had the courtesy to patch that up before leaving.
They clearly didn't, which is why the homeowner had to post this picture. Stay away from bad home workers.
What A Waste
As long as he has the memories, this photo doesn't mean much. It's only physical evidence that proves how much of a beast you are, no big deal.
The guide must feel terrible about doing this. How can he sleep at night knowing he failed like this?
How Did They Remember??
The funniest part about this is that the regulars remembered this man after three decades. They knew him by his first name and immediately banished him again.
Dennis must've done something wild if they're hounding him this much. I need to know what it was.
Lost The Diamond A Day After The 10-Year Workmanship Guarantee
This one has to hurt. She had a 10-year workmanship guarantee, but I'm starting to figure out why. Whoever made the ring probably knew it took exactly 10 years before things got wonky.
I don't know how much it will cost to fix now, but it can't be too cheap. Hopefully, she wasn't too down about it.
"Remember To Close The Dog Flap During Torrential Rain"
Is he still a good boy? It isn't completely the dog's fault, so you can still consider him a good boy. The owner should be more cognizant.
Next time, I'm sure the dog flap will get shut like a bank vault. Cleaning this up was probably a blast!
She Doesn't Recommend
She has some sound advice for folks looking to lose some weight. It's a tactic she didn't choose, so she doesn't recommend it.
Losing that much weight in a week is something boxers would do, but they would have to train insanely hard.
"So This Is What My Mate Woke Up To This Morning...."
Who wakes up in the morning and says, "Boy, I need to steal a garden path today"? No one, but it happened to this guy.
Maybe it was a blessing in disguise. Perhaps it was time to upgrade to a better-looking pathway.
"Built My PC No More Than 1 Hour Ago, Very Nice"
This person has to take some of the blame. If it only took one hour for this thing to shatter, the job was probably a bit spotty.
Still, no one wants this to happen so soon after production. It's like watching a movie up to the climax and then the power goes out for 24 hours.
"Wife And I Visited The Eiffel Tower For Our Honeymoon"
They waited so long to experience this moment together, and this is what they get. A muggy day in Paris and a glass of champagne.
This is something they'll tell their kids and grandkids. The day Paris royally screwed their honeymoon. It has a nice ring to it.
Cable Guy Drilled A Hole Into The House, Through The Closet...
The cable guy drilling into the wall isn't out of the ordinary. The fact that he chose the exact spot where this man's guitar was is wild.
I'm sure he felt some unusual resistance, but it didn't dawn on him to check what was happening on the other side.
"Dropped My Wedding Ring This Morning"
Was the ring made out of, candy? Should this person be more upset at themselves or their spouse for getting such cheap material?
These are supposed to last for quite some time and shouldn't falter after a fall to the ground. That's too bad.
"[Shelves] Broke And Took Down His Entire Lego Collection With It"
Do you have any idea how long it takes to build Lego projects? Depending on how many pieces, some could take months or years!
If there were any Star Wars items in this wreck, I feel bad for the owner. Those are highly cherished.
This Is Very Embarrassing
Can you even imagine how this must feel? What if this person's crush was there and saw this text pop up?
This is a story that this person will always tell when someone asks what their most embarrassing moment was. What were the odds of receiving this text?
Ordered A Blackhead Remover But Had No Clue It Would Ship Like This
If this woman had known they shipped her blackhead remover like this, she would've gone to the post office with sunglasses and a hoodie.
How embarrassed do you think she was when the postal worker handed her this "package"? This is the pinnacle of "it's not what it looks like."
"Roommate Came Home With New Plates And The Bottom Of The Box Ripped Open"
As soon as the roommate entered the room, the hole ripped open and caused this mess. The crash was probably extremely loud as well.
Do you think they'll respect the receipt if he brings it back and tells them what happened?
"This Person's Bag Left Out On The Tarmac"
Something like this is why people don't like flying. Aside from the fact that you're thousands of feet in the air, having your luggage get lost is terrible.
There could be some important medicine in that bag, money, a sentimental object or all of the above. This is sad to see.
"I Got My Diploma By Mail Yesterday..."
I'm sure the delivery person didn't know this was a diploma. Had they known, I'm hoping this wouldn't have happened.
These days, you never know. Some people have no will to care, even if they know it's not the right thing to do.
Got Him Good
Based on what the outline looks like, it seems the person was trying to get away, but failed. That splash was probably monumental.
It's too bad that it's still on the wall, because shouldn't someone have cleaned that? The city wants everyone to see what happens when a bus rides by you.
It Snowed Two Feet And This Car Got Caught With It In An Underground Lot
This poor soul parked their car next to the grate in the underground parking lot, and the rest is history. They should try and get a month of free parking after this.
Isn't the whole point of parking underground to avoid the madness of the weather?
There's A Lot To Take In Here
Even though finding out that your vacation has to be canceled because of a global pandemic is the worst, at least they will always have this memory.
That sign will live on their camera rolls forever.
Her Chances Might Be Better That Way
This might seem super embarrassing to most, but think of it this way: what are the chances that someone can say no to a cute hamster?
Everyone loves a sweet little furry critter.
Don't Flirt With Coworkers
A small emoji mishap can be the start of a steamy office affair that no one is going to forget.
To think it all happened by accident. What are they going to tell the kids?
That Cat Regrets Nothing
That is the face of a cat who does not regret eating that watermelon, not for a second.
In fact, if you left that cat and any melon alone unattended, they would do it again.
Let's Hope They Have Insurance
The guy reaching for the door really makes this picture.
What was he going to do? Gently stop the car from falling off the lift and costing a ton of money?
It's Not A Real Job
Don't you hate it when the internet tells you that your job isn't a real job?
Who gave the internet that kind of power? Maybe it is haunted by our disapproving parent's ghost.
This Seems Like The Opposite Of A Problem
Even though he wanted Tony Hawk's pictures, a tiny hawk seems like a fair place to land.
Tony Hawk himself would probably approve of this tiny little creature taking his name.
Still A Delicious Snack
Yes, it might be a fail as far as snacks go, but that doesn't mean that they won't be delicious.
There is still buttery pastry and still some delicious hot dogs.
It Better Be Good Ranch
How confused would you be if your order showed up and was just a super expensive ranch sauce?
Maybe in his state, the ranch on its own will still be welcome.
Why Is No One Worried?
How is it that all these people can be just relaxing like that?
How do they not notice there is an army of scary, spider-looking crabs coming right for them??
