When You Think Things Are Going Well, Life Will Find A Way To Bring You Back Down

It’s normal to hope or even expect that things will always go our way. Unfortunately, that’s simply not how life works. And as much as we want to keep Lady Luck by our sides, she just often wanders off without prior notice. Well, a lot of people can certainly attest to that. And these photos of things gone wrong are proof that not every day is bound to be a good day.

From burning your tongue, spilling your coffee to stepping on your pet’s poop, and more, a lot of things can indeed go wrong in just a single day. But with nearly eight billion people in the world, it’s only safe to assume that some people are having it worse than you. So, if today hasn’t been kind to you, we hope you’ll find comfort in knowing that you are not alone.


“I’m 49… Just found this in my mum’s bookcase… WTF”


“Feeling like Kevin from the office right now.”


“Was confused when it didn’t sound like it hit the floor”


“Blursed tan lines”


“Tiny body or giant head?”


“One thing I won’t ever do again is build a snow dalek. I did that when we lived at our old house as the kids were into Dr Who. I learnt that when snowdaleks start to melt, they upset the neighbours”


“I wouldn’t be going home after that”


“Friend of mine posted this photo of the job site today”


“When you realize yeast doesn’t stop working just because it’s in a dumpster!”

“Hiked two hours to set up a picnic, returned to this”


“3 am snack”




“When sausage rolls go wrong…”

In fact, instead of sulking, other people are even sharing their stories of misfortune online. And while it’s wrong to delight in other people’s misery, their stories will definitely make you feel a little less awful about your current situation. But if you’re just as “lucky” as them, then you’ve probably experienced the same tragedy at one point in your life. Apparently, there are some lessons in life which we ought to learn the hard way. And more often than not, we have no control over these things.


“My brother, on the ride home from picking up his new puppy.”

“I have no choice but to teach him how to drive”


“My dad’s old truck got hit by a truck carrying old rotten potato slurry to a feedlot for cows. His passenger window was down…”


“Lost my wallet 3 days ago, finally ordered new cards and then…”


“Was looking forward to having some nice bread from a local bakery”


“The printer exploded…”


“Somebody didn’t strap the egg trolleys in properly on the truck. 10,500 eggs broken”

“I cleaned the cat’s litter box and brought the bag with me to throw away in my outdoor trash can on the way to work. I also brought my lunch. Guess which one got thrown away and which one came to work with me.”


“It’s just a little ice, it’s fine.”


“Aaaand there go my $300 headphones”


“His wedding venue was double-booked with a furry convention”

However, you can definitely control how you react to these things. So, after a few minutes of ranting about how terrible your day was, move on, and just take it as a lesson. We know, it’s easier said than done, so it’s okay even if you take a while to adopt this mindset. In the meantime, you might want to learn from other people’s experiences to avoid making the same mistake.


We surely won’t wish these disasters even upon our worst enemies!
