Thanks to recent monsoon rains in Mumbai, the conditions were perfect for a sinkhole to open up riiiiight under some unfortunate person's car. True to its name, that sinkhole did what it does best. It's a little unnerving to imagine that at any time the ground could just open up and swallow whatever it wants, but what choice do we have? Should we not touch the ground? It's the ground.

Misfortune Monday: It Goes On

Life is like a crayon box, and each color represents one of the many flavors of chaos. It's hard to predict what the next thing will be. Maybe you'll get a call that your home is flooded. Maybe you'll wake up to find that a steamroller has parked on your car. Maybe you'll just drop a cake. We learn to tolerate the misfortunes of life because we just kind of have to. So there's that.

Kids can be quite devious. There's something hardwired into so many kids' brains that results in them carrying on with all kinds of mischievous, rule-breaking behavior. And then when a parent goes and introduces a reward system meant to encourage good behavior, some kids will even take the extra measure to cheat the system. In this particular scenario we have a girl who accidentally forgot about her uncle's car keys for seven years. Pretty dang hilarious.

In a sterling example of crap spatial awareness, these guys paid no attention to height specs and tried to park a U-Haul in a low-ceilinged parking garage. What started off as a "whoopsie" quickly turned into a "nononononononono" as they tried to turn around and burst a sprinkler pipe overhead. The moment of panic as that suspect brown water gets let loose is a thing of beauty.

It's everyone's nightmare that some foreign object will find itself in their path while speeding down the freeway, and it's a common enough occurrence that fears of it happening are completely founded. This guy says that the tire was rolled onto the freeway by some guy, which is just about the stupidest cause for any serious accident. Luckily he was able to walk away from it.

We've all been there at one point or another. You open the back of your car, and something stowed away back there just decides to come tumbling out to create a whole kind of mess. In this poor dude's case, it was 30 freaking softballs. Oh man, that had to have been fun to clean up.

Tired Mother Mistakes Girl For Employee, Learns Otherwise

Fortunately, this tale of a customer mistaking another customer for an employee has a happy ending. Normally, we come across frustrating tales of Karens and other entitled walks of life going out of their way to rudely demand things of customers that were minding their business, just trying to take care of their own shopping needs. Sometimes, those scenarios even end up escalating into situations where the confused customers still ask the other customers to help them out, as if they worked there. Pretty unreal. This story though just involves some good old fashioned tomfoolery and an overriding, welcomed sense of humor.

Ever seen a big bucket of molten metal and wondered what would happen if that thing took a little spill? Thanks to terrifying workplace accidents, we have the answer. Now it's time to wonder what it's like to have to clean up a few hundred gallons of cooling aluminum. Get the mop.

Can you imagine what must've been racing through this motorcyclist's brain when he flew through the air, after crashing into the car in front of him, and then miraculously sticks the landing like it was all part of the master plan? I'd guess nothing short of pure disbelief. He looks like he was somehow unharmed. Seriously though, what an unreal turn of events.

Guy Who Didn't Work at Walmart Fired by Walmart Manager

This random dude wearing a blue shirt had a run-in with a manager who was eager to fire someone she didn't even recognize. This one's kind of the opposite of this chef who was hired by a law firm just to foil the security guard. Employees of huge retail chains have to put up with some strange problems at work, like this guy who got hired and through a series of mistakes, never did anything but still stayed employed for months

Weird and Self-Defeating Failures of Design

It's easy to overlook a potentially destructive error. Any one of us could have accidentally installed that toilet in the center of a room or chose Disney font for a funeral home. Okay, maybe most of us would haven't let that slide, but we all know someone who would. There are a fair share of design failures that deserve some blame.

It's hard to tell what's going on here, but by the looks of it, this guy is giving an interview when a car speeds through the scene, nearly interrupting him. If it were any worse, he might have not had the time to take another drag.
