These People Prove That Desperate Times Call For Some Seriously Desperate Measures

There comes a time in everyone’s life when desperate times set in, and you hit a crossroad. Sometimes it’s deciding between paying the rent or eating. Other times it’s taking the job you really hate but need the money.

Nonetheless, desperate times call for desperate measures, and no one knows that better than the people in this article. They all take vastly different approaches to fulfill their need, but they all are acting incredibly desperate.

It’s About To Get Real Medieval In Here

There’s nothing worse than bad drivers. They’re either going too slow, too fast, swerving into your lane, or just plain cutting you off.

There needs to be harsher penalties for these drivers and if it means that we have to start jousting cars, than that’s what we have to do.

When There’s Pizza Crumbs On The Bed

If you look beside your bed and see a mouse going straight up American Ninja Warrior style, you give it whatever it wants.

That’s some dedication to the game. It’s hard to blame him for wanting pizza crumbs. I mean, for a mouse, that’s basically a gourmet meal.

You Gotta Do What You Gotta Do

Let’s be honest here, having little kids isn’t as easy as we always hope. Perhaps the hardest part is getting them to stop hunger striking once we take away their favorite toy.

They’re smart enough to know that if they stop eating, they’ll have some serious leverage to get that toy back before bedtime, and it always works. Coming up, the next breakfast sandwich trend and it’s, uh, disgusting.

This Is Some Grade-A Sneaking Out

If you didn’t sneak out when you were in high school, did you really even have a childhood? The rush of not being in your bed when your parents think you’re in your bed is terrifying and exhilarating all at the same time.

This girl went all out in order to see her crush at the park down the street. The dedication paid off as her parents obviously didn’t find out.

Fast Food Life Of Zack And Cody

I guess it’s not quite the ‘sweet life’ of Zack or Cody now that they work at McDonald’s.

Look, there’s nothing wrong with working at McDonald’s. You get a really good discount on food. If you order off of the value picks menu, you can basically get a burger for one dollar. Now that I talk about it more, it kind of is the sweet life.

Eating This Is A Drastic Measure

Desperate times call for desperate measures, and if this is the food that gets delivered to you, you’re going to eat it.

If you’re in college, you are already probably looking at this like it’s a pretty decent meal. You’ve got an entire egg, a bagel AND cream cheese? Coming up, a real estate agent who is using bribery to her advantage and it’s working.

I Mean Shortcuts SOMETIMES


This is like when you see your health studies teacher smoking a cigarette outside of the school after class.

The hypocrisy couldn’t be any more obvious. In this driver’s defense, sometimes shortcuts are necessary, but just not in this case.


Ain’t No Water Touching This Man Today

There are those days that you just wake up and are already done with the day. You can’t wait to crawl into bed again later in the day, and you just pray that no one talks to you.

You see that it’s raining and you immediately go for the white trash raincoat aka the garbage bag. It may not look pleasant, but it’s very effective.

This Is Absolutely Genius

I don’t know about you, but this would absolutely work on me. I know it seems like a small detail after you just spent a lot of money on a house, but bribing with pizza works 100% of the time.

I’m convinced that Diana started a trend in her area, and after real estate agents see this picture around the world, she’ll start a revolution. Just ahead, a little girl gets a picture with her dead best friend and it’s tragically hilarious.

When The Guy Upstairs Has Wifi

Wifi can be sketchy at best, and yet, as Millennials, we are a slave to it. As soon as the wifi goes out we immediately panic.

We start yelling, “what did our parents do with their free time!?” and scramble around like there’s a zombie apocalypse about to hit town. It’s absolute chaos.

This Is Next Level Trolling

If your teacher brings in a coffin to overstate just how bad your test scores were, you better start begging right away.

We need more people like this guy who is willing to make light of an otherwise negative situation. Just think about the time and effort it took him to bring in a COFFIN. A REAL COFFIN.

“Stay Up Right For One Second Nemo”

When you’re a kid, losing your first fish is absolutely devastating. That was your little buddy, your last good night, the only one who would listen to your problems.

Fast forward a few days and you’re holding up its floating carcass just trying to get a picture while holding back the tears. Tragic. Coming up, a group of friends who wanted fries and they got fries. Like, a ridiculous amount of fries.

Draining Of All Sins Sunday Morning


There’s nothing quite like waking up on a Sunday morning after being in a full blackout for the last two nights and having to go to church.

You sit in the pews with wine in your hair, your breath smelling like beer and your dignity left somewhere near a tequila bottle. Sometimes this is the only option.

This Is Absolutely The Right Move

We need more patriots like this guy who made this pizza and refused to put pineapple on it. Pineapple is a fruit and therefore doesn’t belong on a pizza.

It’s mindblowing that this “trend” was able to take off the way that it did. If everyone stood up to their pineapple loving friend and had an intervention, I think we could make some progress on eliminating it.

You Crave What You Crave

At the end of the day, if you want fries you’re going to get fries. It’s a bonus if you have 10 friends who are all craving fries too because then you can get this masterpiece.

This is a dream and I can’t get enough. I could look at this picture and envision my salty fingers and clogged arteries just by looking at it. Coming up, the meal that you drink to forget about but it’s the only thing you can afford.

When Your Friends Stay For One More Drink But You’re Too Tired

There’s nothing like going to the bar, getting the most drunk, and then getting ditched by your friends.

There comes a point in the night when you hit a wall and just NEED to sleep. If you have to sleep on the street, getting a slice of pizza and using it as a pillow seems like the logical thing to do.

Using Humans To Get To Pets Is A Power Move

It’s starting to become more popular for people to simply tolerate the presence of others just so that they can get to their pets.

Eventually, we will get to a point when we no longer have to do the human interaction part and can just hang out with pets all day long.

College Summed Up In One Picture

When you’re in college and broke, your life revolves around alcohol and noodles. Basically, every meal you have incorporates these two things, so this combination isn’t that weird.

The logic behind this picture is that you won’t have to remember the taste of this bowl because you’ll be in a blackout.

There also comes a time when you’re in college that you’re so broke (even more than the picture above) that you have to start choosing to breathe or eat the cookie.

This cookie needs to last for three meals somehow, so learning proper portion sizes is going to be very important.

Take The Negative And Turn It Into A Positive

There’s a point that you get to when you’re insanely hungry, and you will do literally anything to get food.

This guy just got an alert that a ballistic missile threat is on its way yet that’s not going to stop him from getting to that buffet. This deserves some mad respect.
