Goofs and Blunders That Should Have People Rethinking Their Choices

We are people, and we are the proud glowing, mothers of our own blunders, goofs, mistakes and chaos. Observe as we huff and puff, screaming in agony as we push out these facepalm moments made possible by the brutally stupid. And stand there dumbfounded as we drive home with a brand new wet, crying misfortune Monday, available on alternating Mondays, sometimes.

The Most Disrespectful Houseguests People Have Had

Every person's house is a castle, and sometimes castles get put under siege. Whether it's the neighbor's horrible kid, a random dude who got in during a party, or a brother-in-law who needs to stay for one night for six months, we've all had moments that made us wonder "why do I ever let people in here." The bar never seems to hit rock bottom when it comes to the worst houseguests people have experienced. Sometimes distance isn't even enough in the case of people's worst neighbors.

Misfortune Monday: That's How It Goes

Sometimes our lives feel like magnets for goofs, blunders, mistakes and errors. But luckily that's just sometimes. Unless of course you're the cause of all the spilled eggs, forklift crashes and exploded toilets in your life. Then we can't help you. But odds are, life is usually fine except for the odd misfortunate moments that intercept our usually okay lives. If there's ever a chance to look for some perspective it's on non-sequential but semi-regular Misfortune Mondays.

Misfortune Monday: Life Is Just Like This

No one should be surprised when something bad happens. Well, you're allowed to be shocked when your above-ground pool gets filled with scooters or your freshly baked lasagna explodes all over your car. But it's important to remember that misfortune happens and it goes on. It's life. Of course things are like this. As long as we accept that chaos is unavoidable we can at least be present and move forward. Still sucks though. Misfortune and mayhem is just part of the deal, and it's covered somewhat regularly on Misfortune Monday.

Misfortune Monday: Why Should Anything Go Right?

Not trying to be a Charlie Brown here, but it's not like there's a natural law dictating that our lives must go perfectly. We just kind of have to hope our lives play out better than horribly and not let the setbacks get to us. That's a hard thing to do in a merciless world where things just keep happening, but we're basically out of options. The world is home to misfortune and chaos, and we are its roommates.

Animals Who Shamelessly Wrecked Stuff

To what extent is a cat or dog capable of feeling guilt? The answer is case by case. In the case of some pets like Prancer, the most irredeemable dog, you're likely to get as much remorse as you would a rock. Some dogs probably think they're doing you a favor by eating the door so you can be together. Maybe dogs who get stuck in things are a little more emotionally invested in you if they need your help, but they're also pretty good at making it seem like they don't really care.

Misfortune Monday: Chaos is Unavoidable

They say that life never gives you more than you can handle, but isn't that a bit of a logical fallacy? We're sort of built to withstand punishment, so just seeing how much we're willing to take is an exercise in futility. Like, of course people "handle" the merciless world around them if you count "handling" as just standing there and taking it. Sounds like some survivorship bias. Whatever chaos occurs, the world keeps on turnin'.

Misfortune Monday: The World Keeps On Turnin'

The world is a merciless place filled with chaos and misfortune of all stripes. It's almost not even worth it thinking about what could go wrong, just because so much can go wrong. Worried your dog will escape your fence? Well he's already chewed up your shoes. Afraid your car will get towed in that iffy spot? Well it's been crushed by a tree. It's clear that in life, things just keep happening and we only have a little bit of control over the menagerie of misfortune that might befall us.

28 Decent Reasons Not To Have Children

There's too much proof out there that kids are stupid and weird. Sure, they have a few legitimate reasons for their uncontrollable dumbness, like the fact that their brains aren't done developing. But that's not enough. These things will walk around like they own the place, getting their heads stuck in fences and spilling syrup everywhere. Kids are just weird and stupid people.

Unlucky Moments of Misfortune and Chaos

Our successes wouldn't seem so great if we didn't have moments of failure and chaos, or so they say. It would probably be just as nice to enjoy a promotion or lottery win without having to deal with all the exploded toilets and dropped eggs that life tends to throw at us, but that's just a personal opinion. Either way, the world is merciless.

Chaotic Moments of Misfortune and Failure

Life is unpredictable, and some unfortunate moments are bound to happen. All you can really do is take them in stride and take some solace in the fact that other people also have to deal with life's unfortunate failures and moments of chaos. There's runaway tires, lumber spills on the freeway, and deceptively baked bread. Given the option, you kinda hope for the bread one.

Misfortune Monday: The Many Layers of "Oops"

Life is weird. Things seem to be going fine, and then all of a sudden, through no fault of your own, or some fault of your own, or pretty much exclusively fault of your own, misfortune just keeps happening. Bridges get destroyed, crock pots full of chili get exploded all over cars, and frisbees get stuck in Fabergé eggs. It's too much to taste all the flavors of chaos.

Misfortune Monday: Things Just Keep Happening

There's never going to be a time when things are perfectly alright, but it would be nice to have a few moments of peace. Sadly, this being life and all, that's kind of impossible. Misfortune is abundant and chaos has many names. It could be something as small as a dropped plate of spaghetti or as big as a tornado whipping a house away. A lot can go wrong.

Misfortune Monday: Things Don't Always Go as Planned

If you've been around for more than a few days, you've most likely come to the conclusion that the world is unpredictable. Phones get caught in bike chains, toilets get thrown through windshields, and giant pallets of eggs never seem to stay contained. With all the unforeseen chaos around us, all we can really do is be glad that we're probably not dealing with that exact problem ourselves.

Unpredictable Moments of Chaos and Misfortune

Sometimes you can't know exactly how life is going to mess with your day. It could be as small as you forgetting to wear matching shoes, or it could be as big as your car getting completely covered in eel slime. You just can't know what kind of unfortunate moments of failure and chaos could be coming your way.

Misfortune Monday: All Kinds of Bummers

Life manages to produce an unpredictable and wide variety of unforeseen chaos that we just kind of have to deal with. Sometimes it's as arbitrary as having your mailbox exploded by lightning, and sometimes it's as small and disheartening as realizing you just tried pouring something into an upside down glass. Life has its messes large and small.
