Blunders, Goofs, Mistakes, Failures and Chaos

Every part of life brings with it the potential for mistakes, failures, errors and blunders. Is it always our fault? Maybe some proactivity on our part could keep our toilets unexploded and our cars free of snow, but at the same time, the world is unpredictable. No amount of caution will completely save us from failure and stolen underwear, as evidenced by semi-frequent Misfortune Mondays.

Unfortunate Moments of Failure and Chaos

As much as we'd like the forces of darkness and confusion to leave us alone, mistakes, failures, errors and blunders still find their way into our lives. It's not a graceful life; one of dropped phones and exploded pipes, but it is the one we are given. All there is to do is take it in stride and sometimes expect that the world is merciless.

Misfortune Monday: A Lot Can Go Wrong

We can't stop every bad thing from happening in our lives. We can do our best to mitigate errors of our own fault, but sometimes, for no good reason, there's a snake in your toilet and your tires explode. Sometimes we have to face that the world is unpredictable. And in that world, boy oh boy are there many flavors of chaos.

Failures, Mistakes, Messes and Errors

Life has a lot of good things going for it, but it wouldn't be life if there weren't also the potential for huge and stupid mistakes. We try to do our best, but mistakes, failures, errors and blunders are bound to get in the way at some point. It could be a frisbee through the windshield or the dropping of a perfect lasagna. There are just too many flavors of chaos to know what to expect.

Have you ever been in a position where you have to pronounce a bunch of lyrics real fast during a live performance, but kinda stumble through it so rigidly that you literally look like a malfunctioning robot? No? Thought that was a more common problem.

Dumb Design Fails from The Lazy and Incompetent

People are asked to make a lot of things, but sometimes we're not up to the challenge. This leads to some prime fails of people not doing their jobs correctly. Words get left off of shirts, signs stop making sense, and people start building pathways to nowhere. We're not mad, we're actually pretty stoked about it.

We've all witnessed some majestically unprofessional "not my job" moments. Maybe someone at work was running out of time, money or patience and just went with what they had.

We'll admit that the first one here is arguably a BS technicality on pronunciation. That said, the next two are some bummers. He even had the million and the car, and it just slipped away. You can see it in his eyes.
