Most Expensive Mistakes People Have Made

Someone on AskReddit asked for people to describe the most expensive mistakes they've ever made. Sometimes you just mess up, and the costs that result from that fail can skyrocket. We all make mistakes. Hopefully the next mistake doesn't take too much out of the wallet.

Old People Doing Their Best with The Technology

You can't really blame a group of people who had adult children before the internet was even invented for being bad with the internet. But you can most certainly laugh at the frequent mistakes they make on there. There's weird breaks in social media etiquette, strange oversharing and general mistakery. But hey, these old people on social media are doing their best.

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.

Old People On Social Media Doing Their Best

Technology is a constant source of fear and anxiety for old people. They have a hard time learning how to use it, and so will you when you get old. When we're trying to beam 40 year old memes into each other's brains via the super-internet, we'll probably make some similar mistakes like direct messaging google or leaving a wildly inappropriate comment on the wrong post.

Design Fails That Were Someone's One Job

As long as people keep making things, the world will have more and more stupid design failures that need some help. We have no way of knowing if these folks were trying their best, but however hard they tried, their attempts hit the ground with the sound of failure.

Loopholes That Clever Folks Exploited

Whether it was an idiotic promotion, lack of oversight, a glitch in the system, an escape room scheduling loophole, or a sandwich place that also sold discounted ingredients to its own sandwiches, these people found a way to play the game and save a couple dollars in the process. The commitment and dedication it takes to notice these loopholes is admirable, in a chaotic, roguish sort of way.

Unfortunate Times Everyday Life was Derailed by Chaos

Any day where nothing particularly unusual happens should be regarded as a pretty good day when you realize all the misfortune that can put a cramp in people's style. Like, maybe your bus was late, but at least it didn't get sucked into a giant sinkhole. The universe can get creative when it uses unfortunate moments to throw folks for a loop.

Brain Farts So Bad They Could Clear a Room

People shared their stupid mental mistakes and switch-ups, commonly known as brain farts. It's not really your fault, most people have so much to focus on on a daily basis that sometimes we don't put enough effort into our own speech. But still, switching up a few letters can mean the difference between saying you've just been hit in the shins and you've just shit in the bins.

Design Fails That Need Some Work

If you're into stupidly redundant construction decisions,  shirts that accidentally say "anus," or signs for businesses that also accidentally say "anus" than you've come to the right place. Let's be real, some design can use some extra thought, and some of it, like these magazine layout fails, are freakin awesome.

Stupid and dirty design fails.
