This one is kinda sad. Not exactly sure how you find yourself in this situation, but this is not a good look for the mom. And her interaction with her little kid? It's just a little heartbreaking. We hope that kid ends up okay.

It was the world championship road race in Yorkshire. German Dario Gomez Becerra from Colombia had a catastrophic bike failure that left him on the side of the road. He expected to get picked up and...didn't. And the camera guy just followed him while the announcers talked about how sad it as. It's kinda hard to watch. You just want to give the guy a hug and say it's gonna be okay.

Ominous Signs That Are Too Good At Being Spooky

Overall, it's good that we have signs like these, because it means someone is looking out for you. That said, such a casual reminder of your own mortality can seem a little off-putting, especially when spooky signs do too good a job. Some could even argue that some scary signs are scarier than they have to be.

Disappointing Purchases People Made After Being Misled By Ads

We've all been woo'd by a good commercial at some point in our lives. Especially when you're a kid, Nerf really makes it look like having a sweet blaster will make you the coolest kid on the street. We've all gone crazy at some point for those ads for laser tag games and frozen drink makers, and many of us never learn and keep making stupid purchases far into our adult years. That said, this isn't always our fault, sometimes products are straight up misleading and manipulative.

Work Memes For Those Of Us Who Can't Stand Our Jobs

We've all had really rough jobs, and while ruminating on your annoying job can suck, some well placed work memes can be cathartic. Whether it's some customer service role where we have to deal with Karens having freak-outs, incompetent bosses or straight up boring jobs where you have nothing to do. The grind can lead to a sort of existential dread and a cycle that never seems to end. But don't worry, there are other jobs out there, and more often then not, the total BS you have to deal with will lead you to bigger and better things. Anyway, here's some work memes for the grind.

Funny, relatable and sad work memes about jobs.

Customer Demands a 500 MB plan Instead of Existing 16 GB Plan

On one hand, having to call customer service, especially for a telecommunications company, can be a time wasting slog. On the other hand, some customers just call customer service for an opportunity to scream at someone. In this case, this woman would rather scream and demand a 500 MB plan rather than actually listen, so things didn't exactly end in her favor.

Anyway, for more dogs who've gotten themselves into uncomfortable situations, here are some stuck dogs who need a hand.
