Photos That People Should’ve Looked At A Little Longer Before Posting

A good rule of thumb for posting anything online is to never post anything when you’re mad, something you wouldn’t say in front of your grandmother, and any photo that looks… questionable. But sometimes people don’t give the photo the extra three seconds it needs for them to figure out if they should post it or not and we get these gems.

These people are out here stunting for social media and it’s all kinds of cringe. So buckle in and make sure your hand is at the ready because you’re going to be doing some major facepalming at these.

Bae Caught Me Slippin In My Mirror Selfie Game

This ‘bae caught me slippin’ is almost too perfect to exist. We truly don’t deserve these people and all the hard work they put into making us smile.

She outdid herself with the caption too, which reads, “Lol bae caught me slippin. Love him. Goodnight from us.” Goodnight you two.

The Commuter Who Had To Fight Imaginary Traffic

Don’t you just hate traffic? It’s so slow and congested and all the other cars block out the good selfie lighting.

We can relate to this commuter who was so done with the mass of invisible cars surrounding her. What a #mondaymood amirite?

The Cannon Fodder Toddler

This parent clearly knows the value of a great vacation photo. Why settle for the boring ol’ stand and pose when you can really use your surroundings to your advantage.

So hop in the cannon little Timmy, it’s just like Team Rocket on Pokémon.

The Mattress That Was In Great Condition But Also In A Mountain Of Stuff

So does “great condition” just mean still recognizable as the object, or are we actually going to talk about the quality of the object?

Clearly this poster is not seeing what we’re seeing, because this bed is not doing great. Sweetie, are you okay?

Mount Rushmore More Like Mount Chokemore

Family vacations are rough. You’re crammed together with the same people day in and day out, and mom always makes you share a bed with your younger brother who drools on your pillow.

It almost makes you want to… just choke him out in front of a beloved American monument.

The World Traveler Who Totally Left His Backyard

The reason Instagram influencers are influential is because they influence us to do the things they do.

This aspiring influencer mogul just wants us to travel the world, and he’s doing it all in front of the same fence in his backyard.

Who Let The Dogs Out While We Were Taking The Family Photo?

Gathering everyone up for a family picture is so difficult. You have to coordinate schedules, get ready, and make sure everyone is awake.

It’s basically like herding cats, or herding dogs going to the washroom in the background of your photo in this case.

Bae Caught Me Slippin’ In The Monochrome

This guy just wanted to prove to us what an excellent cuddler he was by posing with his blanket. He even set the scene like a true photographer by matching his green blanket to his shirt and his bedspread.

If he would only tell bae to cool the photos for a minute and get up he could have an excellent career as a production designer.

Stop It Right Now. Do Not Disrespect Tacos And Books Like This.

Corporate marketing stunts are most of the time so weird and have no concept of social media culture we wonder if it’s actual lizard people pretending to be humans devising them.

Just like this Mexican restaurant advertiser trying to be ~quirky~ and who definitely got kicked out of a library.

The Couch And Chair Combo For Sale

Here’s a fantastic couch ad on Facebook for anyone looking to really make their guests feel uncomfortable.

No wonder the entire thing is only £10 because the couch and chair don’t come separately. That costs extra.

Omg She’s Dating A Celebrity And I See Nothing Off About This Photo

Live your best life because you only get one chance. So if there’s a celebrity that you’re obsessed with and you want to be dating, go ahead and download photoshop because you need to be out here #living.

This girl and her totally famous boyfriend are the inspiration we need.

Omg Ronaldo Calm Down You’re Being Embarrassing

This photoshop expert had a run-in with Ronaldo and let me tell you, this world-renowned soccer player was just such a fanboy that it was super cringey.

He probably had to move all his awards, caps, and Fifa trophies out of the way to beg this poor guy for a selfie. Sigh.

The “Trigritude” Of This Leopard Has Me Shook

If you’re not using the word “tigritude” in every one of your business meetings from now on then you’re missing a perfect opportunity to let others know how powerfully confident you are.

We love this guy’s tigritude but we’re sorry to inform him that that’s, in fact, a leopard.

#TurtlesAreDumb Let’s Get It Trending

Jane Goodall over here is asking the questions that all of us are too afraid to. Why exactly are turtles being so overdramatic on the internet and choking on straws?

They saw the video and looked at their Starbucks straw and immediately knew in their soul it was fake news. Thank you for your scientific opinion and incredible hashtag.

Oreos Copied The Taco Bookmark And Yes, Thank You For Asking, I Am Upset

Oreos went and really put the final nail in the coffin of my assumption that corporate marketers are all a bunch of humanoid lizards trying to understand us, because they went and copied the taco post.

Thank you for starting a trend nobody asked for and really giving me a good reason to switch to Mr. Christies.

Bae Caught Me Slippin’ From Two Angles

This guy’s bae really wanted him to work his angles so they went in for a couple of photos.

They even put the full flash on at night in this car just to get the pics and he miraculously slept through it. Wow, that’s relationship goals.

The Tinder Weapons Master

Imagine scrolling through tinder and finding your knight in shining armor who’s a master of the art of fighting.

Dang, this expert swordsman, baseball player, and fire poker must have some lips of steel or that sword is foam.

Nananananana Bat Joker

To be fair, this one is an interesting tattoo idea. The only problem is the attitude that inspired it.

Nothing is more exhausting than someone with the “tough guy” mentality when we’re all just trying to get caffeinated enough to blink using both eyes at the same time.

Bae Caught Her Slippin’ And Caught A Lecture

This girl needs a new bae who respects her privacy!! We all get tired of all the paparazzi circling around us sometimes and just want to take a nap in peace.

Dang, this bae needs to learn some boundaries, which shouldn’t be too hard considering they’re not real.

The Ex-Stepmom Email That Needed A Doublecheck

We know not to send emails when we’re angry, but we should add inconsolably thirsty to that list as well.

The stepmom really needed to check the recipient before she hit send because this is a wild way to reconnect with the son of your ex.

The Bodybuilder And His Mom The Dedicated Fan

You’ve got to have someone in your corner no matter who you are. If you fall they have to be there to pick you up.

If you need that mirror selfie to send to a girl you met at Jambajuice then you need your mom there to capture those rippling muscles.

Bae Scratched Me Then Grew Some Opposable Thumbs

This cross-species bae caught me slippin’ has us going back to grade 12 biology asking about the relationship between cats and monkeys.

This cat is clearly the missing link we’ve been looking for because it somehow grew opposable thumbs and a big smart brain and took a selfie with its owner.

The “Bae Caught Me Slippin'” Because A Classic’s A Classic

If you’ve never heard of the ol’ “bae caught me slipping” trend let me get you acquainted. It’s lonely people taking selfies with the caption “bae caught me slipping” trying to fool the internet into thinking their significant other took the photo while they were sleeping.

Spoiler alert, it never works and we get these incredible selfies.

Conceived Because Of Facebook Likes

The doublecheck should’ve happened the moment they started putting their personal relationship issues out on the internet.

If Facebook likes are what these two need to have big discussions then they need to sort out their life and not do it on a comment board.

I Can Be Both The Good Cop And Bad Cop, Ladies

We all love a man of mystery, and that’s why this stud is just so intriguing. He can be the nice musician dude we met at Temple Bar one moment or a Chad bro the next.

He definitely isn’t just switching hats to do it either.

Omg Bae I’m Walking To School!

Bae is out here not only catching people when they’re slippin’ but also rampaging the youths with their camera when they’re just trying to get to school. Bae!

Think about what you’re doing! Education and sleep are very important.

Next Time She Tries To Look Hard She Should Take Down The Justin Beiber Poster

Remember when we all got Facebook when we were young and naive and posted the absolute worst content we knew how to? Close up photos of our eyes? Yes please.

This girl looking hardcore with her cigarette and her Justin Bieber posted didn’t give the photo a second look but her older and wiser self definitely is.

Candied Pickles Exist Because We’re Living In A Dystopia

Oh, I’m sorry, were you trying to have a normal afternoon surrounded by normal people and food? Well, think again, because this psychopath on the internet decided to skip the “should I post this?” thought and post their candied pickle.

I would say I’m sorry, but you need to witness what humanity is like.

Dad, Stop It!

When you’re in middle school, it honestly feels like your parents are doing everything in their power to embarrass you in front of your peers.

In this girl’s case, she was right.

The Birth Of Christ, I Attend

This mom posted a photo of her family’s nativity scene online in the spirit of the holidays.

But she didn’t realize that her children had replaced the third wise man with Yoda.

What’s Up With That Dog?

Ma’am, I’m going to need you to stop with your selfie and focus instead on what your dog is doing against the window there.

Why is he standing? What does he want?

Goodbye To That Baby’s Brain Cells

No parent likes to openly admit it, but we’ve all dropped our kids or hit their heads on a cabinet, etc.

Maybe the kids would have more brain cells if we hadn’t, but hindsight is 20/20.

It’s Not As Cute As You Thought

This girl had kept this photo up on her fridge for about six years since it was one of the first (albeit awkward) photos with her boyfriend.

Then she realized that there was a third person in it.

“Omg Babe, Stop Trying To Take My Picture”

If you’re going to stage a photo of yourself to pretend someone else is taking it, you really should make sure you leave no evidence behind.

Like, I don’t know, a mirror in the back.

He Took Butt Pics Before They Were Cool

Having a pet is great in a lot of ways—they help you feel loved, they’re fun to play with, and they love to snuggle.

But one of their less positive qualities is their disregard for your photos.

Weeee!

Sometimes, you’re just trying to take a cute photo with your gal pals while riding on a boat.

Then you accidentally make it look like the man in the background is getting a piggyback ride.

Why, Though?

I can understand the desire to show off a brand new haircut to your friends on social media.

But perhaps you shouldn’t get your naked boyfriend to take the picture in front of a mirror.

If You’re Going To Photoshop, At Least Try To Hide The Truth

It’s almost become commonplace for influencers to photoshop their pictures on Instagram.

But this one didn’t even check the distorted pier before putting it online for everyone to see she’s a liar.

Not Your Typical Trip To The Zoo

One moment, you’re just trying to take your kid out to the zoo on a fun trip to learn about different animals.

The next thing you know, you have a photograph of giraffes mating.

There’s No Dignity In Being A Dog

You can’t blame the dog for this one. He’s only got so many choices when it comes to where he can go to the bathroom.

You’re the one who came outside into his yard.

Does She Know He’s There?

This is either the start of a horror movie where someone says “your roommate in the background is so funny” and she says “I don’t have a roommate…”

Or this was a conveniently timed bathroom selfie.

Time To Invest In A TriPod

If you’re going to try your hand at becoming a fitness influencer, you might want to invest in a tripod.

That, or explore the self-timer function on your camera before you take any more photos.

There’s No Bats In The Cave

It’s unclear what this girl was trying to accomplish with this photo considering half her face is covered by her phone.

What we are sure of, though, is that she didn’t want the view in the makeup mirror.

An Impromptu Reveal

This feels like karmic justice.

If you’re going to brag on Facebook about how you find out the gender of your baby but you’re going to make everyone else wait, make sure it’s not written on the ultrasound.

It Seems Like You Brought This On Yourself

Maybe the reason that their license is getting revoked is that they’ve chosen to read their mail and take a photo of it while driving at 40 miles an hour.

It’s probably for the best that this person is off the road.

Is The One In The Back Okay?

We’re not sure what the purpose of this photo actually was.

But it revealed that someone in the background might need a little extra assistance from an adult before he can focus in class.

“Let Me Help You Adjust That”

It feels like we’re interrupting some sort of intimate moment with this Spurs fan and the player behind him.

Maybe he’s just helping him by tucking in his loose tag at the back.

Fore Men Down In The Background

They were either trying to dodge out of the way of a stray ball that someone accidentally hit towards them, or the man driving the cart had one too many beers.

Either way, they’re about to be in the line of fire again.

The Lighting Was Too Good To Wait

Remember that if the bathroom lighting is great for taking selfies, that also means that it’s going to be well-lit in the mirror.
