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.

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.

We wish, for the general state of things, that people were better at thinking. Since that will never change, all we can really do in lieu of that is laugh at the funnier moments of pure facepalm life has to offer. The sheer number of disappointing moments of facepalm is absolutely daunting.

When People Didn't Know Who They Were Talking To

The anonymity of the internet allows a lot of people to pretend to be experts on things, as well as pass massive judgement and throw accusations around like a furious ape tosses fresh hot crap. Here are times that people were sorely mistaken and didn't realize they were talking to someone who knew a hell of a lot more then they did. Sometimes these end decently, like when the writer of Men in Black was told not to mansplain Men in Black.

Karen Orders Around Random Guy Who She Thinks Is Deaf Employee

Every once in a while the wild Karen will mistake a stranger for an employee and direct their abuse at a fellow customer. while that doesn't sound like much of an improvement, the lack of professional courtesy frees up their target to say whatever they want to back. The extra level of dramatic irony makes stories like these all the sweeter.
