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.

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.

Times People Really Screwed Up at Work

Humans aren't perfect, so naturally we're bound to make mistakes at work. It's when we're using expensive tools, or facing ten angry customers that a really big screw-up can have some extreme consequences.

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.
