Parent Forgets What Day It Is, Thinks Kid Got Taken

This parent had a rough night of sleep, and proceeded to fall into such a mental fog that they forgot what day it was, and literally forget that their kid was at school.

Guy Tries To Pretend He Doesn't Know English, Fails Hard

This guy made a grave mistake. And that mistake was one of him trying to tell a lady asking for money that he didn't speak English, while he very well did the whole time.

Student Writes Joke Essay About Flat Earth, School Takes It Seriously

Man this student sounds like they'd be a prime recruit for the Flat Earth movement. They wrote a joke essay about the earth being flat, and the school ended up taking it so seriously that it manifested in them implementing a whole bit about the earth actually being round, into the curriculum. I'd say mission accomplished in the way of the student playing a solid little prank.

Man Buys Old Lady Coworker Coffee, Regrets It

Betty was playing with fire and she didn't even realize it. You can only imagine the kind of incredulous fear that gripped this poor dude as he watched Betty unknowingly, fearlessly chug a coffee drink that had six shots of espresso in it. It sounds like those 911 drinks are nothing but bad news. Why not just stick to a coffee, or even a double shot of espresso? That's just so much caffeine.

Guy Eats Family's Donuts, They're Devastated

Finally, we have a good old fashioned TIFU that's just believable enough to make this story all the more entertaining. You can all but picture the dude trying to exercise some self restraint in the face of the maddeningly tempting sweet donuts, and ultimately failing miserably. From there, it sounds like he pretty much just committed to robbing that poor family of their precious donuts. With that being said, it's definitely a wholesome and relatable TIFU for anyone that's ever tried to snack on something sweet, and fail to not overdo it. Once you start, it's pretty much impossible to stop, when it comes to those sweet donuts.

Patient Doesn't Realize MRI Technician Can Hear Them

All kinds of cringeworthy and unfortunate events seem to happen in the air-conditioned confines of the local doctor's office. Sometimes, that means a patient not realizing that they're actually mic'd up, and the MRI technician on duty can hear every last fart that they're letting loose.

Dude Lives To Regret Staring At The Sun As A Kid

Man, this might get the anxiety flowing for anyone out there that ever did something similar to this as a kid. It's funny and unfortunate that as kids we're all just led along, sometimes down the wrong routes, due to our overwhelming curiosity. The lesson here is obviously to not stare at the sun!
