These People Played Themselves, And The Internet Gleefully Watched Them Get What They Deserve
Even the smartest person can have a bad day. We all make mistakes, and in the past, those mistakes would go away pretty quickly. But now thanks to the internet, those mistakes can haunt us forever. Seriously, anyone who has run for political office knows that the Internet has an archive of all your greatest mistakes.
These people all got played by themselves, and the internet logged it all for us to laugh at later. One girl learned the hard way not to mess with wildlife. In the immortal words of DJ Khaled: Congratulations, you played yourself.
This Guy Was Asking For Trouble
I’m not sure what this guy was expecting by posting not one, but both sides of his credit card on Twitter. Scam artists spend a lot of time creating plans to steal people’s money, and you’re practically giving it to them.
Hey, at least you have overdraft protection set up.
How The Tables Have Turned
Why does anyone over the age of nine throw bunny ears up behind someone anymore? Bunny ears and whoopie cushions are both things we leave behind when you get into the double-digits of life.
This girl got what she deserved for using this prank.
That’s One Way To Get Double-Carded
If we put aside her stupidity, we can appreciate just how bold the girl trying to use the fake is. Everyone knows Fake ID: 101 is to memorize everything about it. I even knew the star sign for my fake.
This girl didn’t bother to even look at the ID, or she wouldn’t have even risked giving it to someone that looks exactly like the photo.
Don’t Hit And Run, Folks
Don’t hit and run should be an obvious piece of advice, but especially don’t do it if your license plate falls off at the scene.
Someone t-boned this guy’s car and fled, but left behind the most incriminating piece of evidence. Congrats, you played yourself and your car insurance.
Barry Was Born To Bee An Athlete
It seems like guys are always trying to call out girls for faking an interest in sports, but this girl didn’t even attempt.
If this conversation happened in person, I’d have some sympathy. But this girl had all the time in the world to do a quick Google search of “Barry B Benson” to find out he’s a cartoon bee.
Nature Doesn’t Care About Your Snapchat Story
If there’s one thing you learn going to the zoo, is that nature doesn’t care one bit about you and your social media following. This girl learned the hard way not to get too close.
It could have been way worse. A goose attacked my sister when she was a kid after she ran up and pulled out a feather.
Anyone who’s tried to avoid giving someone their number at the bar, or just decided to avoid creating any real relationship will know this is the worst possible thing to happen.
Usually, the route to go is to try switching one number at the end, so it’s believable, but instead, this guy played himself.
Technically, Mother Nature Listened To You
You get what you ask for. This guy called upon Mother Nature to give him double digits, and she did. Yes, the digits went the opposite way, but he’s still not appreciating what he’s been given.
Some people just don’t know how to be grateful.
Tuna Fish Don’t Deserve This Shame
That awkward moment when you forget that a cross looks a lot like a T. This simple mistake makes everyone driving behind you rethink everything they know about tuna fish.
What did tuna fish do to make you need to shame them? Is tuna shaming the new chicken shaming?
That’s One Way To Leave Your Mark Forever
That’s a seriously permanent way to get back at someone for playing you. It involves planning, time, and playing it cool until the day of the appointment.
I don’t think I’ll ever be bitter enough to do this to someone. But since he played both her and himself, he gets double congrats.
Someone Has Regrets
This reeks of bad life decisions and impulsive purchases. A friend of mine did something similar, where he impulsively bought a truck, regretted it immediately, then tried to return it.
He lived a life of shame. But the person with their Fiat is putting their pride aside, admitting they messed up, and trying to warn the rest of us.
Proof That Men Never Outgrow Doing Stupid Things
There’s one thing that always remains true: if it looks like you shouldn’t do it, boys will keep doing it. Example A: this guy sees a wall of holes, and rather than walk on by to order his food, he thinks that sticking his finger in one will have no consequences.
He’s immediately regretting his decision, and the guy with him has no sympathy.
Desperate Times Call For Desperate Measures
It’s one thing to accidentally post your credit card on Twitter for everyone to see, but this guy knowingly gave a girl his credit information and still got played.
He was probably expecting her to do some clothes shopping, but she went the better route by purchasing a bouncy castle. Hey, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.
A Spelling Mistake Online Is Basically A Death Sentence
The first unwritten rule of the internet is to never make a spelling mistake in an argument or when you’re making fun of someone. It doesn’t matter how valid your point was, or how good of a burn you thought up. If there’s a typo, you’ve lost.
People don’t always notice the typos, but if you’re tweeting at a spelling bee, its definitely going to be caught.
Proof That You Should Pay Attention To Road Signs
We’ve all been known to miss a yield sign or a lane merge warning, but “Caution: Wet Cement” is one road sign you may want to take extra care to watch out for.
Even if you think it looks dry, don’t risk it by driving a two-ton vehicle over it to test it out.
Those Tricky Dimensions Are Always Out To Get You
How many mistakes have to be made on the internet before people realize they need to read the dimensions of any Amazon product? Seriously. This keeps happening and people keep playing themselves.
It doesn’t matter if you only paid $10 for the chair. That’s two burritos you could have had at Chipotle while you visit the guy with his finger stuck in the wall.
When You Can’t Afford Dinner And They Call You On It
This is my worst possible nightmare. These days it’s so much more common to split the cost of the bill, that’s what I’m expecting at the end of a date.
I always offer to pay, but usually, the other person understands the payday struggle, and we foot our separate bills.
At Least It’s Government Funded
My heart goes out to all the struggling actors and models who take on awful projects just for the paycheck. All those men and women in Depends commercials could be so much better than that.
Don’t forget about the woman who is trying to make a bowel-movement pill look sexy. It’s not easy.
She Went 0-100 Real Quick
I’m not condoning any domestic violence here, but this husband had to know this deal was way too good to be true. Unless you’re from Sister Wives, no woman would ever invite the mistress to become a part of the family.
It’s sad to hear that lives were lost, but what was he really expecting?
Congrats, Your High School Legacy Was Summed Up By T-Pain
Everything is a competition for high school kids lately, and even having the funniest yearbook quote is part of that. Gabriel probably thought he’d get an amazing quote by tweeting at a celebrity, but he ended up with probably the weirdest one possible.
His story is legendary right now, but at the 25-year reunion, no one will believe him and he’ll be stuck with the burden of T-Pain.
