Inappropriate Times People Laughed Too Hard

Funerals, weddings, classrooms and plays are all places where the social contract demands silence. But sometimes something happens. Sometimes the speaker says something unexpected. Maybe you're just ready to party. To be fair, people say absurd things in complete seriousness all the time, and we can't expect things to always go as planned.

Absurd Individuals Who Didn't Get Satire

By now, people should be aware of things like satirical news websites, but for some reason, we still get sadly mistaken people who didn't understand satire. Whether it's because they didn't read the source, got so angry they wanted to believe a joke headline, or are just plain dumb, people will believe the dumbest headlines. These sites have been around for years and mistaken people still don't get satire.

Times People Knew They Failed

Sometimes you just know that you messed up. That sudden realization can give way to panic, full body tingles, sweaty palms, and the overriding sense of fear that the whole life as you know it is about to change. Or, maybe you just take some deep breaths, and go about addressing the situation as best you can, without throwing panic/fear into the mix. These people were certainly hard pressed to remain calm during their moments of fail.

Regrettable Tattoos as Memorable as they are Permanent

Like buying a car or anything else you're expecting to be stuck with for a while, tattoos are one of those things that it helps to think a little harder about, and go to the right artist. Oh, and double check any tattoos you get in languages you don't understand, because they end up as tattoo translation fails. On the other side, here are some cool tattoos that turned scars into art.

Spelling Failures that Really Ate a Dictionary

Spelling is hard, and we see a lot of spelling fails that would make the dictionary quit. It gets harder when you hear a word or phrase a bunch of times without ever reading it, so you have to make up your own phonetic spelling. And that's how you get so many folks living in a doggy dog world. Then sometimes you get small typos that mean a lot, like when a sign suddenly turns a beach into "pubic access." Sometimes spelling fails make us question public schools.

Misfortune Monday: Messes, Mistakes and Chaos

A lot of bad things happen in life. Sometimes these moments of misfortune take the form of something a little more outside of the usual. Sometimes people spill ungodly amounts of eggs. Other times people crash into a truck transporting a bunch of eels. The flavor of unconventional mishaps can be unpredictable.

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.

People's Most Expensive Mistakes

Someone on AskReddit kickstarted a thread about people's most costly mistakes. Some mistakes have a knack for wiping out the wallet, depleting all the funds, and ultimately teaching folks very expensive lessons. But sometimes, there's no lesson to be learned. It was just an honest accident.

Woman Has Groceries Delivered, Fails Occur Everywhere

This woman found herself in quite the series of fails, after trying to have some groceries delivered. It sounds like just about everything that could've gone awry, did. She accidentally flashed the driver, wiped out after her back went out, and pissed off her cat. Hopefully she tipped the delivery driver extra for offering to help her up. Not a typical day on the job for that driver, at all.

People That Followed Instructions Literally, And Failed

A recent Twitter thread inspired people to share those times of failure when they followed instructions literally, and then failures resulted. Communication can be a tricky thing. Just cause you're asking someone to do something in a way that makes sense to you, doesn't mean that the recipient of the instructions won't interpret your intention completely differently. And from there, we have a wonderful collection of fails.

It only dawned on this group that they might have the wrong number when their friend mentioned that he felt lonely and wondered why no one texted him.

Mistaken Woman Thinks Office is Dog Daycare for Months

In this weirdly wholesome story, a woman dropped her dog off at a dog friendly office, and her dog was so nice that the employees didn't bother to correct her. You could also say "years ago, this person operated an illegal dog sitting business" but where's the fun in that. For some wholesome dogness, here are tired dogs in awkward sleeping positions.

Moments of Classic Facepalm to To Get that Stupid Fix

As long as there are people, there will be people who act and say things without thinking. Some of these moments are human and understandable. Others are in their own league of disappointing facepalm.

Misfortune and Chaos that Derailed People's Days

Misfortune and failure is primed to strike at any moment. The ways it can hit are often cartoonish, like a melting ice cream cake or an exploding glass coffee table. Sure we can be careful, watch our steps and keep our noses clean, but that still won't stop chaos and its friends from entering our lives.
