Misfortune Monday: Uneventful Days Aren't Bad Days

Sometimes the days you don't remember are the best ones. Not because anything particularly good happened, but because a strange and specific mishap did not happen. You can never be too sure of what mess large or small will be just over the horizon, but if one thing is for sure, it's that misfortune puts things in perspective.

Company Overhears Employee Roleplaying with Lunch

Usually embarrassing unmuted moments like this come from when someone is badmouthing the CEO, but this person was just being weird while eating food. Hopefully things end up okay. Sometimes we get ourselves into some embarrassing ad stupid situations, like this guy who thought a date was a job interview.

Wonderfully Incompetent Failures of Design

There wouldn't be design without a healthy number of design fails. There's people putting telephone poles in the middle of roads, goofing up headlines, photoshopping the ever-loving reality out of their ads, and making classic stupid signs. You've gotta love it when someone makes a great big sign for their local "Pubic Library." Here are some wonderfully unprofessional "not my job" moments.

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.

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.

Group Chat Accidentally Texts Foreign Stranger for a Year

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. Turns out they'd been texting a foulmouthed total stranger the whole time. For a wholesome mistake that went on way too long, here's a story of a woman who mistakenly thought a random office was a dog daycare for months.
