Brutal Life Fails That Will Make You Realize Your Day Wasn’t That Bad

MonicaAugust 12, 2022

It could be said that life fails make the world go round. When you take life too seriously, it becomes a lot less fun. Being able to laugh at yourself and your friends is a sign of confidence. Life is short, so why not make the most of it? We all make mistakes, and when we can relate to one another in this regard, it brings us closer together. 

Sometimes, though, life fails can go a little bit further than we want them to. They might even start as good ideas then end up disastrously, or they might happen because of something that’s out of our control. When we witness cringe-worthy, embarrassing things happening to other people, it makes us feel better about ourselves. We’ve collected some of the funniest life fails on the internet, so read on and accept that your so-called ‘bad day’ isn’t truly that bad.

Broken Charger 

Plastic containers are supposed to protect electronics, not break them. They have one job. Somehow, this plastic container holding a USB cable failed at its one job. The USB cable split right in half.

Shutterstock

That’s a miserable way to start the day and is one of those life fails that make you shake your head and want to give up. This person might’ve waited a while to charge their phone, only to find out they’d have to go straight back to the store and buy another one. At least it’s likely they’ll get a replacement for free (via Domesticated Companion).

Close Enough

Not everyone knows how to carry a shopping cart, especially if it’s something they’ve never done before. At first glance, this shopper might’ve compared it to a purse, so they thought you hold it the same way.

Shutterstock

It makes a lot of sense. Unfortunately, that’s not how you carry a shopping cart. There are wheels at the bottom for a reason. Witnessing these kinds of life fails makes us feel better about our own examples of momentary stupidity. At the very least, we know how to use a shopping cart (via Domesticated Companion). 

Reddit

Cactus Fail

Falling into any object doesn’t feel good. Whether it’s the floor, a wall, or a plant, it feels just as bad every single time. There are some objects out there that feel worse than others, like a cactus. Those spikes are no joke and if you get a face full of them, it’s even worse. The prickles hurt, even when it’s just in the palm of our hand.

Shutterstock

Getting those needles in the face has to be 10 times worse. This Reddit user shares their experience watching one of those life fails that makes you shudder in pain. A kid fell off of his skateboard and face-planted straight into a cactus in front of a shop. Let’s hope he was wearing gloves and a helmet (via Reddit). 

Domesticated Companion

Read Before Returning 

This person was having a bad day. It must be one of those days where life fails just get in the way, and it feels like you’ll never have a break. After purchasing this cat toy, the customer realized it stopped working after 30 minutes. Their disappointment led them to return the toy.

Shutterstock

They must’ve thought they were doing a good deed because they also decided to call the company out on the internet. Unfortunately, the box clearly says that the toy shuts off after 30 minutes, so the customer is only embarrassing themselves. If they read the directions, they would’ve prevented this entire ordeal (via Domesticated Companion). 

Reddit

Fire Hydrant 

When we witness people tripping over something, it makes our entire body freeze up. Not only do we envision their pain, but we also feel a level of embarrassment for them and their life fails.

Shutterstock

This Reddit user shared a story about their brother tripping over a fire hydrant while walking down the sidewalk. It’s an honest mistake. To make matters worse, they fell face first into the street. Let’s hope no one was there to witness the event (via Reddit).  

Reddit

Untanned Buttcrack 

Many people’s worst nightmare is accidentally exposing themselves at the beach or pool. You never really know what sort of direction your bathing suit could move in. It could get stuck on something and fall off, or move too much to the side.

Shutterstock

This Reddit user shared one of their worst life fails when they spent the entire day at an outdoor pool only to finally realize their bathing suit had a huge tear right down the middle. After this kind woman told him what happened, he felt a rush of embarrassment. He had spent the entire day exposing his untanned buttcrack to an entire crowd of people (via Reddit). 

Domesticated Companion

Something Is Off

Life fails are pretty common when it comes to cooking. Most of us have no idea what we’re doing, which is why we end up with unrecognizable food and dishes that taste flavorless and burnt. It looks like someone had a bit too much Jack Daniels before cooking these because something is off.

Shutterstock

The dough didn’t unroll or turn out as they were supposed to. At least they’re probably still edible, so in the end, it doesn’t matter what they look like (via Domesticated Companion). 

Domesticated Companion

Small Car Only

Finding a parking spot is hard, especially in big cities. When we finally do find that parking spot, we’ll do anything to keep it. This person took it one step further and tried parking his large car in a spot that clearly states “Small Car Only!” Sometimes, like in this case, it’s necessary to give up a parking spot, especially when it can cause an accident.

Shutterstock

It’s likely someone’s going to hit his car as they drive through the parking garage. This is one of those life fails where you hope karma does its job (via Domesticated Companion). 

Domesticated Companion

Mini Copter

Could this dad look any more unimpressed? He doesn’t seem too happy about getting a mini helicopter flown into his head. Most people wouldn’t, to be honest, but at the very least he could laugh it off.

Shutterstock

This is one of those life fails where all you want to do is shake the person and give them a little life. On the other hand, it could be the tenth time that day that his kid flew a helicopter into his head, so by this point, he’s over it (via Domesticated Companion). 

Domesticated Companion

Don’t Try This At Home

Combining Mentos and soda is a bad idea, especially on an airplane. If you’ve seen it done on YouTube before, then you’ll know what’s about to happen. Mentos expels the soda from its container, like a volcanic eruption. It’s cool if you’re in a space where you can easily clean up the spillage.

Shutterstock

It seems like this person purposefully sought one of those life fails that’ll make him, and the stewardess’s lives, miserable. It’s not only annoying to clean up, but it’s sticky, too (via Domesticated Companion). 

Reddit

All The Goodies 

When life fails to happen to someone else, they’re hilarious. We don’t have to deal with the embarrassment that immediately follows and even have the chance to partake in the laughter.

Shutterstock

This Reddit user shared their drunk story about running into a bounce house. The Velcro grabbed their boxers, pulled them down to their ankles, and exposed all their goodies to the entire birthday party. We’re not sure it could get any worse than that (via Reddit). 

Reddit

Wrong Knee

Flirting with our significant other is one of the greatest feelings in the world. There’s no one else in the world on that same level of comfort. We feel special, which is why we seek every possible moment to flirt with them. This Reddit user shared one of the most embarrassing life fails we’ve ever heard.

Shutterstock

While trying to flirt with his partner on an airplane, he made a huge mistake. He reached behind them and began touching the knee of their girlfriend. Moments later, he heard giggling. When he turned around, he realized he was touching the knee of the man next to his girlfriend. The man was a good sport about it and said, “I just wanted to see how far you would go.” That’s a great reaction to have to a stranger flirtatiously touching your knee (via Reddit). 

Reddit

Piano From Heaven

We’ve all heard the pickup line, “did it hurt when you fell from Heaven? Because you’re an angel.” Well, it looks like this piano fell from Heaven and landed on top of this person’s car.

Shutterstock

This is one of those life fails that have zero explanation and are better left unanswered. There’s a myriad of possibilities as to how this piano landed on this person’s car, but we’ll never have the real answer. All we can do is shake our heads and feel sorry for them (via Domesticated Companion). 

Reddit

High-Five Fail 

Successfully giving someone a high-five is always fun. When there’s that perfect contact and loud slap, there’s nothing better. On the other hand, high-fives can be one of those life fails that can ruin an entire day.

Shutterstock

This Reddit user admits their high-five life fails when they continuously tried to high-five someone who wasn’t going in for one. At least they’re honest. We’ve all been there (via Reddit). 

Domesticated Companion

Footprint Proof

We can tell a lot from footprints. Police use footprints to solve a crime, and we can tell where someone is by following their footprints. This drive did not end well, and ended up being one of the biggest life fails on this list.

Shutterstock

Somehow, this car drove into a hole in the ice. By the looks of the footprints, we can safely assume no one was seriously injured or harmed (via Domesticated Companion). 

Domesticated Companion

Bread Rises 

Everyone knows that bread rises when you bake it. Except for this person. Somehow, it slipped their mind that bread rises and they ended up with a volcanic eruption of flour. It spilled over the bucket and onto the floor. This is one of those life fails that make you realize you need to change your career.

Shutterstock

Unfortunately, it seems like this person should not be a cook. Maybe they should stick to cleaning the kitchen instead since they’re very good at making messes (via Domesticated Companion). 

Reddit

Footloose Dance

Watching people dancing joyfully in their world is beautiful. That person knows how to enjoy their own company, and we realize we can learn a lot from them. This Reddit user admits one of their dancing life fails, when they broke out into a Footloose dance, complete with swirls, only to find out they had an audience of coworkers.

Shutterstock

Honestly, they probably made their entire day. One of the greatest parts about this post, though, is the comment. Someone said, “continue dancing while maintaining eye contact. Show them who’s alpha.” That’d be some wonderful entertainment right there (via Reddit). 

Domesticated Companion

Bath Time 

Not only do cats hate baths, but cats also have sharp claws. When you combine the two of them, it’s a recipe for disaster.

Shutterstock

This internet user forgot about this simple fact and set himself up for a chain reaction of horrible life fails, including a scared cat, sharp nails, cut skin, and even a small scar. We’re not sure who’d think to brave this, but it seems incredibly stupid (via Domesticated Companion). 

Reddit

Wrong Urinal 

Similar to the guy who grabbed the wrong knee on the airplane, this guy grabbed the wrong elbow at a urinal. Grabbing the wrong body parts seems like a more common experience than not. This Reddit user was trying to play a joke on his friend and mess him up mid-stream.

Shutterstock

To do so, he grabbed his elbow and proceeded to jiggle it so he’d pee all over himself. Well, it turns out it was an old man in the urinal next to him, who found the ordeal incredibly hilarious. This is one of those life fails that could’ve ended up horribly (via Reddit). 

Reddit

We’re Gross

Sometimes, things slip off our tongues that don’t make any sense. It happens more often when we’re stressed, tired, or anxious. It could happen so often that it leads to a series of life fails we just have to surrender to.

Shutterstock

This Reddit user admits one of their life fails by saying the wrong sentence and then proceeded to go along with it. We’re not sure how this Reddit user managed to say, “wow, we’re so gross,” instead of “wow, we’re so close,” but at least their friend agreed and joked around. It could’ve ended up a lot worse (via Reddit). 

Domesticated Companion

Never Letting Go

When we love someone, we never want to let them go. It’s the same for animals. It can go a bit too far, though, when the love feels suffocating and overwhelming. This snake loves its owner so much that it never wants to let her go.

Shutterstock

She’s giving her such a tight hug and kiss, that she ended up going to the hospital. Let’s hope the snake eventually releases her because otherwise, this is one of those life fails that could end very horribly (via Domesticated Companion). 

Reddit

The Microphone

Videocameras not only record video but audio, too. That’s the point. As this high schooler was recording the football game, he and his friend talked about girls to pass the time. Everyone’s guilty of it, especially in high school.

Shutterstock

Unfortunately, this guy didn’t realize that his entire conversation was being recorded. Let’s hope none of the girls they were talking about heard that video, otherwise, that’d be an awkward rest of the year (via Reddit). 

Domesticated Companion

Reach For The Stars

There’s nothing wrong with reaching for the stars, especially when it involves a dream you’ve wanted to achieve your entire life. There are times we can take it a little bit too far, or too literally, in this woman’s case.

Shutterstock

For some reason, she’s standing on a stool in her driveway, trying to reach for the stars. Either she knows something we don’t, or she’s fully surrendering to some strange, mysterious life fails (via Domesticated Companion). 

Domesticated Companion

Broken Windshield

It’s pretty obvious that wood easily shatters glass, especially if it’s moving at a fast speed. This person never carried wood in their car and didn’t think to secure the piece of wood so it wouldn’t go through the windshield at a red light.

Shutterstock

They also needed to protect the glass. There are tons of ways they could’ve prevented this from happening. At least this is one of those life fails that’ll teach them a huge lesson (via Domesticated Companion). 

Domesticated Companion

One Small Problem

There’s nothing better than building something yourself. It becomes a symbol of your hard work and dedication and something you can show off to your friends. Unfortunately, it also leaves room for error, especially if it’s your first time building something.

Shutterstock

This can come in the form of building something crookedly, or, in this case, making the cord a part of your deck. At least these types of life fails happen rarely, because once they do, they don’t happen again (via Domesticated Companion). 

Domesticated Companion

Exhaust Pipe Tattoo

Playing with fire is dangerous. Playing with smoke is equally as dangerous, especially when it comes out of the exhaust pipe of your car. No one taught this kid not to play with smoke. Even though he learned the hard way, it goes without saying that it’s probably the last time he’ll ever make that mistake again.

Shutterstock

He doesn’t seem too concerned, though, and it’s likely he’ll brag to his friends about one of the most hilarious life fails he’ll ever make. There’s no better way to make yourself feel better about something than laughing it off (via Domesticated Companion).  

Domesticated Companion

Too Late

The older we get, the more difficult it is for us to understand technology. New gadgets are coming out every day and it’s hard to keep up with all of them. This woman is no exception. She thought the plastic on her phone was the screen protector.

Shutterstock

It’s an honest mistake and is pretty adorable. At least she saved herself from getting a new screen when she realized the bubbles were only plastic and not the actual screen (via Domesticated Companion). 

Domesticated Companion

Not A Boat

Cars do not float. They are not boats. These people thought otherwise after they decided to drive their car onto the beach. It got stuck in the sand. Once high tide hit, it was game over. The water washed over the car and filled it up like a bucket. It also sunk into the sand.

Shutterstock

Hopefully, they were able to salvage all of their valuables because the car is done for. This is one of those life fails that certainly make you feel better about yourself and your intelligence (via Domesticated Companion). 

Domesticated Companion

It’s Not Working

Sometimes, our brain glitches. Whether the wrong words come out of our mouths, or we put the pot on the wrong boiler, it happens to everyone. This is one of those life fails that everyone can relate to. We’ve all done something like this before.

Shutterstock

Only 10 minutes after putting the pot on the stove, this person probably wondered why their eggs weren’t boiled. It might’ve taken them a few moments to realize their pot was on the wrong burner. At least they were close (via Domesticated Companion). 

Domesticated Companion

Free Bike

This person must have been in a hurry because they didn’t think this through. All someone has to do is lift the cord over the pole and they have a free bike. For some reason, they must’ve thought they secured the bike to the pole.

Shutterstock

This is one of those life fails that makes us admire our intelligence and awareness. Let’s hope this bike was in a friendly city because if the wrong person found this bike, it’s game over (via Domesticated Companion). 

Domesticated Companion

State Trooper Fail

Just because someone is a state trooper, doesn’t mean they’re immune to everyday life fails. This state trooper was in a hurry because they forgot to take the gas nozzle out of their car. Either they were in a heated chase with an escaped prisoner, or they were starving and wanted their midnight snack.

Shutterstock

It’s probably the latter, considering they don’t seem to be in too much of a hurry anymore. They’re patiently waiting in line for a burger and fries. Maybe they intend to return the gas nozzle to the station later that evening (via Domesticated Companion). 

Domesticated Companion

Head Nod 

Even when directions are written out in front of us, we might still make a mistake. This person is no exception to the rule. After specifically being asked to respond with a clear yes or no instead of a head nod or shake, they proceeded to use their head. It’s one of those life fails we can relate to, though.

Shutterstock

Sometimes, we mistakenly do something even though we were explicitly asked not to do it only moments before. It’s innocent. Our brains might take a while to absorb and process the information (via Domesticated Companion). 

Domesticated Companion

Something Is Off 

Let’s hope this was an honest mistake by the homeowner, otherwise, that carpenter is going to lose their job. Surprisingly, they managed to build their door with the doorknob on the wrong side.

Shutterstock

Placing the doorknob on the right side is the most obvious part of a door. It’s the whole point. Either this person was having a bad day or they weren’t paying attention. Regardless, they’re going to have to start all over (via Domesticated Companion). 

Reddit

Twinkle Toes

Square dancing requires plenty of coordination. Not only do you have to watch where you’re stepping, but you use parts of your body you normally would never use. This Reddit user managed to break their wrist during a square dancing class.

Shutterstock

Not only did they have to go through the embarrassment of breaking a bone at school, but they also had to deal with their dad making fun of them. They earned the not-so-desirable nickname “Twinkle Toes,” and it looks like it’s one of those life fails that’ll stick around for a while (via Reddit). 

Domesticated Companion

Bad Sunburn 

This guy needs to go back to elementary school and learn about sunscreen again. Not only did he manage to burn his front and back, but his sunburn is in the shape of a crisscross. How did that even happen? We can only imagine what he was wearing and how it ended up this way.

Shutterstock

This is one of those life fails that make you cringe in horror. He could be on a sunscreen commercial by advertising what not to do. Let’s hope his sunburn went away quickly. He’s going to need to invest in a lot of aloe vera after this. At the very least, it’ll be several days of pain before his sunburn starts to heal (via Domesticated Companion). 

Reddit

The 16th Of May 

When we’re nervous, we’re more prone to making mistakes. This is especially true when we’re hanging out with someone we like or have feelings for. It seems like all of our intelligence goes out the window, and we’re left with nothing but a brain that doesn’t work. We trip over our words and say the most embarrassing things possible.

Shutterstock

This Reddit user admits one of their life fails when they said that because their birthday was on the 16th of May, he wasn’t sure that his birthday ever fell on Friday the 13th. Well, duh. 16 and 13 are not the same number, hence the reason his birthday would never fall on Friday the thirteenth. It’s an honest mistake but hilarious nonetheless (via Reddit). 

Domesticated Companion

Pretty Sure It’s Charging

When phone cords become too tangled, it’s nearly impossible to tell which one is which. It becomes mission impossible, and most of the time, we want to give up. It gets worse when it’s multiple cords from different gadgets, like headphones, chargers, and USB cords. That being said, this mom made an honest and adorable mistake when she thought she was charging her phone.

Shutterstock

It’s one of those life fails we can all relate to and have probably all done once or twice. It’s hard to tell where the plug is attached to in the photo, but it’s certainly not plugged in. Let’s hope this kid helped their mom charge their phone in the end (via Domesticated Companion). 

Reddit

Nice To Look At You

As we mentioned before, when we’re nervous, random things come spilling out of our mouths. There’s no telling what will come tumbling from our lips, but a lot of the time, it’s embarrassing.

Shutterstock

During an interview, this Reddit user admits one of their vocal life fails. As they introduced themselves to the first teacher, they said, “nice to look at you” instead of “nice to meet you.” It’s a hilarious and honest mistake that most of us have probably made once or twice in our lives. They’re not wrong at saying it’s nice to look at them, because it probably is. But it’s not the correct way to greet someone, at least not right now (via Reddit).  

Domesticated Companion

Tight Fit 

How did this mailman possibly get the package inside the mailbox? He must have a superpower because now, there’s no way of getting that package out without dismantling the entire mailbox or cutting the box into pieces. Maybe he used the box as a vessel to get his anger out and imagined his worst enemy was the box.

Shutterstock

Whatever he did, it worked. Or the mailman must be making a big prank. Honestly, let’s just hope it was an honest mistake and one of those life fails that happened because the mailman was stressed and tired (via Domesticated Companion). 

Reddit

Beer Bellies 

Seeing someone who’s pregnant brings joy into our lives. There’s a new life forming inside that woman, and it’s almost as if we can feel her excitement. Sometimes, though, someone seems pregnant with life when all they’re pregnant with is beer. It’s usually obvious when this is the case, but there are times when the fine line is blurred.

Shutterstock

This Reddit user admits to one of their major life fails when they accidentally complimented not one, but two women for being pregnant, when it was their beer bellies. At least they’re wearing those bellies loud and proud (via Reddit). 

Domesticated Companion

Cute Photo 

We all love taking pictures of our food. There’s nothing better than showing off a delicious, decadent meal to all of our friends. There are times when it works out, and other times when it doesn’t. This is one of those times. As this woman tried to take a photo of her dinner, she misjudged the amount of gravy inside.

Food & Wine Magazine

Most of it ended up spilling onto the table. Think about all that flavor that she lost. It’s blasphemous! The most surprising part about this photo, though, is that the cameraman clearly didn’t say anything about all the food she lost (via Domesticated Companion). 

Domesticated Companion

Microwaved Shirt

There’s a scientific reason microwaves are only used to heat up or cook food or drinks. It’s not meant for anything else, and especially not clothes. For some reason, this person thought it was a good idea to microwave his shirt instead of drying it. There are times when shortcuts work, and other times when they don’t work.

Shutterstock

This was one of them. These kinds of life fails make us roll our eyes. At least he knows he can go back to Salt Lake Community College and buy another shirt. Or, better yet, take another science class (via Domesticated Companion). 

Domesticated Companion

Photo Copy Fail

This seems like an idea that could work, but it’s obvious it didn’t. Technically, they’re not wrong in thinking this would work. When we photocopy something, the replica of that thing comes out on paper. It just doesn’t work with technology.

Shutterstock

This person tried photocopying their iPad screen to print the information instead of screen-shotting it. It’s an honest mistake, and one of those life fails you only need to try once. It’s admirable that they posted this photo on the internet, for the entire world to see. They might’ve saved several people from making the same mistake (via Domesticated Companion). 

Reddit

Sorry, Amy 

There are some life fails that stick with us for decades. We remember that one moment in time when we said that embarrassing thing to a crush when we were 10 years old. Those are the ones that seem to stick around forever. 

Shutterstock

This Reddit user is no exception. He shares one of his life fails when he wrote a song for the girl he liked who also happened to be a bit older. Unfortunately, it turned out to be one of the most cringy songs in the world, full of unique lyrics like, “light of my life.” We can pretty much assume what the other lyrics are like already (via Reddit). 

Reddit

Wrist Stump

We all say things by mistake. Usually, they have an innocent underlying cause. For example, we can accidentally crack a joke about something sensitive to someone without realizing it. It’s embarrassing but understandable. 

Shutterstock

This Reddit user shares one of their life fails when they made that grave mistake. When he saw an attractive girl, he wanted to be a gentleman and hold the door open for him. To go a step further, he said, “need a hand?” Seconds later, he looked down to see that the girl had a wrist stump. She had no hand. Out of all of the jokes he could’ve made that day, that’s the one that came out of his mouth. Talk about cringy (via Reddit)!

Domesticated Companion

Not The Garbage

We understand trying to dispose of your Christmas tree the natural way, but there’s a fine line between a practical way of doing it and the absurd. If you want to drive it to a nearby forest and leave it there, then that’s understandable. But trying to dump it out the window and into the garden below doesn’t make any sense.

Shutterstock

Where do they think it will go? For some reason, this person tried to do that. The tree didn’t even make it to the ground, and instead got caught halfway between their window and the garden. At least it’s an exciting display to look at. Maybe they hoped Santa Claus would come back and retrieve the tree for them (via Domesticated Companion). 

Reddit

It’s Too Quiet

ATVs are loud but extremely fun to drive around. Having conversations while the engine is on is nearly impossible, which is why everyone stays to themselves until the engines are off. While spotting people on a bunch of ATVs, this person wanted to shout to them. He wanted to say he wishes he were them, but instead, something completely different came out. 

Shutterstock

This is one of those life fails that seem to happen to everyone, at least once in their lives. Accidentally, he said, “I wish I was f*cking you right now.” He completely scrambled up his words. It makes it even funnier. Maybe he even got a first date out of that. You never know who heard him say that (via Reddit). 

Domesticated Companion

Almost There

This is one of those life fails that resemble that kid we used to play as a game when we pretended the floor was lava. This is just the adult version. It’s not clear why she started on the perimeter and made her way straight into the middle, instead of working her way from one end to the next, but it happened. It’s safe to assume it’s her first time painting the floor since an expert would know better.

Shutterstock

To be honest, most of us would make the same mistake, so it’s one of those life fails we can easily relate to. It was poor overhead planning. It looks like she’ll be stuck there for a while, at least until the paint is dry. Let’s hope she has a good book to keep her company for the next several hours (via Domesticated Companion). 

Domesticated Companion

For Surfaces Only

This could be pretty dangerous if the wrong person gets ahold of them. Without realizing it, they could use these as toilet wipes instead of for their intended purpose, which is for disinfecting surfaces. Imagine the burn. No, thank you.

Broken House

Why someone would place these next to a toilet is beyond us, but it happened. Hopefully, someone dared to move the wipes into the cupboard and save one poor soul from burning their genitals. No way would that end well, ever (via Domesticated Companion). 

Domesticated Companion

Igloo 

Clearly, these people wanted to turn their car into an igloo, because they didn’t shut their sunroof. The sunroof may be jammed, but they should’ve tried parking the car in a garage. It’s also possible they left the sunroof open overnight and now it’s frozen shut. Either way, it doesn’t look appealing. At least they have their jackets and hat to keep them warm on the uncomfortable drive.

Credit: Burst by Shopify

This has to be one of the only life fails on this list where they look like they’re thoroughly pleased with their decision. Once that snow melts and turns into water, though, they’ll realize their huge mistake. Any water inside of a car never ends well (via Domesticated Companion). 

Reddit

You Too

We’ve all been there. Saying “you too” to a waitress, after they tell you to enjoy your food, is one of the most embarrassing life fails ever. Technically, we’re not wrong in telling them to enjoy their food, since they might be on their way to their lunch break. The best part about it, though, is that it happens to nearly everyone, at least once in their lives. 

Shutterstock

Still, it makes us feel better that this wasn’t us. At least we secretly hide in our misery. These people told the entire internet world about their embarrassing life fail, just to make us feel better (via Reddit). 

Reddit

Peed Her Pants

We’ve all peed our pants as a kid. It just happens. We’re learning how to potty train and still haven’t figured out how to hold it all in. That being said, adults are not immune to peeing their pants. This is especially true when we’re drunk or especially anxious. Liquids play a huge role in this. Coffee and alcohol make it even harder to hold it in your bladder.

Tasting Table

This Reddit user shares one of their life fails when they drank too much Starbucks before a class in college. They got up to pee, and five minutes later, had to pee again. They were too embarrassed to get up again, so they decided to hold it in. Huge mistake. Their pee leaked out slowly and eventually turned into Niagara Falls, a gushing waterfall all over their pants and seat. Talk about embarrassing (via Reddit). 

Domesticated Companion

Zombie Apocalypse

There it is, the beginning of a zombie apocalypse. This is where the zombie comes out of the coffin and starts attacking everyone nearby. It’s clear that this corpse doesn’t want to get buried and is making an escape through the back window.

Shutterstock

Unfortunately, it’s more likely that the driver forgot to tie down the coffin and it smashed through the window, even though the zombie story is more entertaining. This is one of those life fails that could end up wrong if the coffin opened up and exposed the corpse  (via Domesticated Companion). 

Domesticated Companion

Melted Plastic

At first glance, that looks like a delicious red icing or sauce. It turns out that it’s the complete opposite, and is just melted plastic that’s gotten all over the oven. That’s going to take a while to clean up. And not only is it hard to clean up, but it’s dangerous to smell all those plastic fumes.

Shutterstock

They’re going to need to do some serious cleaning in their oven before ever using it again. Their meal is also completely ruined. It looks like they’ll need to get takeout from now on until they learn that you can’t put a chopping board into an oven (via Domesticated Companion). 

Reddit

Tents Aren’t Soundproof

It’s common knowledge that tents aren’t soundproof. They’re made of such thin material, that any noise can penetrate the barrier. That’s why it’s not suggested to have personal, deep conversations while camping, especially if you’re around a lot of people. 

sandypinescamping.com

These teens didn’t know any better. While they were camping, they had an in-depth conversation about having sex with one of the women running the youth program. It turns out she could hear their entire conversation. She went so far as to tell them to quiet down. Breakfast the following morning was not pleasant, as we could imagine  (via Reddit). 

Reddit

He Tried

We can’t always read people’s body language. This is why talking exists. It helps us express ourselves, ask questions, and avoid any awkward exchanges, even though it’s not foolproof. This Reddit user shared one of their most embarrassing life fails involving a pencil and an accidental high-five.

During class, a girl lent him a pencil. That’s sweet. We’ve all been on both sides of the exchange, so we can only appreciate the gesture. At the end of class, when the girl went to retrieve her pencil, all she got was a high-five instead. Honestly, it’s an understandable mistake. When someone sticks their hand out, our immediate thought is to high-five them. He could’ve pulled it off and pretended the high-five was a part of the exchange. At least he tried (via Reddit).

Bye-Bye Beard

Even though this is one of those life fails that make us feel better about ourselves, we still feel bad for this guy. Not only did he lose half his beard, but it’s now completely uneven. There’s a chance he digs the look, though, and honestly, he pulls it off.

Not many people could pull off a half beard. Maybe his friends will call him half beard from now on. By the looks of his face, he doesn’t seem too bothered. He even has a bit of a smirk going on. Maybe he did this on purpose and used it as an excuse to get out of work early (via Domesticated Companion).

Read The Signs

After seeing someone stuck in this situation, we can only imagine what they must have done to get themselves there. Are they stealing from other people? Did they cheat on their girlfriend? Whatever it is, karma got this guy, and now he has to pay for whatever he’s done. Getting that car out of the cement doesn’t look like it’s going to be an easy task. 

Not only did he not read the signs, but he ignored them and parked there anyway. Well, as he quickly learned, cement dries no matter what object is inside of it. In this case, it was a shiny new car. It’s now stuck there for a while, as a shiny monument for the world to see. This is one of those life fails that make you question the awareness of some people and why they think they’re immune to the rules (via Domesticated Companion).

Bad Idea

People come up with bad ideas all the time. That’s how we learn, and how we decipher the ones that work from the ones that don’t work. But there are some bad ideas you shouldn’t even try to do, like fill your trash cans with gasoline.

For some reason, this guy thought it’d be a great idea to fill his trash bins with gasoline and drive it back home in his pickup truck. It’s irresponsible, stupid, and an accident waiting to happen. Hopefully, no one drove behind him on the way home. One wrong tap or spark and all that gasoline would go up in flames (via Domesticated Companion).

Art Car

Your car is an outer expression of yourself. Whether you drive a shiny sports car around or an old, tattered Sebring, it says a lot about our personality. And budget. This woman is artistic because she designed her car in a very abstract way.

In this day and age, it’s pretty common. Maybe we’re not supposed to understand her car, just like abstract art. Either way, during times like this, it’s better to go to to a professional who can get the paint job done the right way (via Domesticated Companion).

Gasoline Lessons

It seems like multiple people need to learn the ins and outs of the dangers of gasoline. It’s not something to mess around with. All it takes is a small flame and all of the gasoline will start a fire.

This woman doesn’t understand how to fill up her tank and believes that if she holds it on the outside of the tank, it’ll magically fill up. These kinds of life fails make us lose hope for humanity (via Domesticated Companion).

In The Bank

Banks are notorious for their quietness. The only other place in the world where you can hear a pin drop is a library. This Reddit user shared one of their brother’s life fails when he was standing in line at the bank. He tried to pass the time by playing a Facebook game on his phone. Unfortunately, it was one of those games that don’t end well.

As he clicked the button, loud porn started playing from his phone. Not only did the entire bank hear the ordeal, but he was unable to turn it off or turn the volume down. Honestly, this would make going to the bank interesting, since it’s one of the most boring tasks ever (via Reddit)

Wrong Top

We can give these guys credit for trying to be classy. They went so far as to get a wine opener and tried to open the bottle the fancy way. Little did they know, that it was a screw-off and no wine opener was needed. At least they still got the top off. If they didn’t that would’ve been even more frustrating.

Food and Wine

If they were trying to impress a date, they certainly managed to embarrass themselves instead. At least these kinds of life fails have a happy ending because they got to drink the wine. It’s better than having opened the bottle and then dropping it onto the ground (via Domesticated Companion).

New Shoes

This is a great excuse to buy a new pair of shoes. There’s no way she’s going to wear those again since they’re now a part of the sidewalk. She looks lost, though, and we can only imagine her facial expression.

Hopefully, she wasn’t wearing her favorite pair of shoes, since that would be one of those life fails that make us feel sorry for ourselves. The good news is that it looks like she’s in a shopping mall, so it’s likely she’s near a huge selection of shoes to choose from (via Domesticated Companion).

Stuffed A Car In A Van

There’s no way this is safe. Not only did these people manage to stuff the car in the backseat of the van, but they were not attempting to drive it on the highway. Let’s hope they secured the car inside, unlike some of the other posts on this list.

People will do anything to save a bit of cash here and there and will go to some crazy extremes to do so. This is not something to try at home, because it could end very badly (via Domesticated Companion).

No More Lashes

The curler is a wonderful tool to use to curl your lashes when done correctly. If you use them the wrong way, it could end up horribly, just like what happened to this internet user. They somehow managed to pull all of their lashes off of their eye using the lash curling tool. We can only imagine how painful that must’ve been.

Now, they’re sporting the bald eyelid look. They should befriend the half-bearded guy. This is one of those life fails that make us appreciate our lashes. It looks like they’re going to need to buy fake lashes for a while until their eyelashes grow back. That could take months (via Domesticated Companion).
