Professions Where Overhearing "Oops" Is A Worst-Case Scenario

There are certain jobs in this world where the room for inevitable failure is far more forgiving than others. If anything, it's an AskReddit thread like the one we have here that could deepen your appreciation for the trivial moments of error that you've encountered throughout your gig that seemed so important at the time. The reality is that things can pretty much always be worse. 

People describe the professions where you definitely never want to overhear someone say "oops."

Dude Shows Up At Wrong House for Party, Looks Like Weirdo

It's pretty much every grown man's worst fear to look like an absolute creep. Like, in the top ten "things guys shouldn't shouldn't do" at least numbers 4 through 8 are some variation of "make it seem like you're friends with stranger's kids." It goes without saying why that precedent is in place, but there are good reasons for it. This guy had the less than comfortable experience of accidentally talking his way into a random girl's house. Interesting choice from the mom to just let the whole situation play out just to watch him suffer, but alright. Small errors can snowball out of control, like this guy who accidentally ate 420 dollars worth of beef.

Twitter Thread: A Huge Ship Is Blocking The Suez Canal

John Scott-Railton regales the specifics of what is becoming a demonstrably huge screw up in one of the most used thoroughfares in global trade. The massive ship is just kind of sitting there as other vessels form a traffic jam behind it. Some say it's being partially refloated, but it's proving to be a pretty big problem that's just sort of sitting there.

You gotta love the way he handles that moment when he realizes he's been talking to a mushroom, instead of his mic. Clearly, a fun guy who is able to laugh at himself.

An accidental sudden lurch forward was all it took for this dude's bike to turn over at the second-to-worst-possible time. If only the bike was another few inches away it could have been fine. Could he have pulled it out of the way? Maybe. Maybe it's also understandable to not want to be in that situation with a train barreling straight at you.

Woman Calls Off Wedding After Fiancee Complains About Wedding Dress

This guy decided to take to Reddit and ask people whether or not he was in the wrong for arguing with his newly ex fiancee over the extravagant cost of a wedding dress. His biggest flop of all here was that he used her real name, which apparently resulted in people creating fake accounts pretending to be her. What a nightmare. Goes to show that sometimes you really can spare yourself a life of trouble by not airing out your dirty laundry online.

After fishing the donated heart from the wreckage of a non-fatal helicopter crash, firefighters handed off the thing to a waiting medical professional. Almost immediately, the staff member tripped and dropped the human heart on the ground. Doctors were still able to successfully transplant the heart, so other than that it went pretty well.

Sometimes we walk outside, into a spiderweb, and realize that that was enough outside for the day. It would appear that this woman experienced one of those times. We're glad she was able to walk it off.

The one thing that makes you feel dumber than making a stupid mistake is when you make that mistake for a seriously long time. In this case, this person found some "snacks" they liked, and since the packaging wasn't obvious, they bought it again and again.

Soldier's Microwave Mishap Creates Chaos

Man oh man, sometimes the brain takes a lunch break, and a true fail presents itself. Take for instance, this soldier who microwaved a can of Chef Boyardee (with the lid on), on an active military base. Naturally, the resulting mess created a nice eruption of chaos, given the environment.

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.

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.
