1) “Mine. Mine. Mine.”

Sometimes nature just doesn’t love us back! They rather eat ice cream than to fly home on an empty stomach.

Oh well, it’s a good picture that can accompany a great story!

2) I Do Things…

I mean… I guess some people like to advertise things on their refrigerator? Most people just put up magnets from businesses and the like but some people like to stand out.

To each their own!

3) Gotcha!

The internet wins again! There’s no traffic, y’all. In fact, she’s driving with no hands. Just so she can take this photo.

(insert HEAVY sigh)

4) Today’s Lesson…

We’re going to throw thinking out the door today. It’s overrated. So grab your guns and aim them all at me and the person in front of you…

Major facepalm!

5) Looks Delicious!

When it’s on the plate that is. Poor thing doesn’t even know she’s missing out on the best part of the dish – the sauce!

I guess it’s better than landing on her lap!

6) Raindrops Fallin’ On My Keys

She left her keys in the car door. So, how did she start her car?! It’s probably happened before.

7) Gross!

Lady… you have dog poop just sitting out on the floor of your place? The ironic part, she seems to be really into appearances. Let me tell you, this definitely does not make you look good!

8) Put a Smile On

At least she’s happy! Maybe she just wants to make people smile. Or she’s just really having a “bum” moment.

9) “How do I look?”

Somewhat naked. Somebody didn’t do a good job with the background check before snapping this photo.

He will live in infamy.

10) Whoa, there!

People, you have to be careful with photos and mirrors! They catch things that we don’t. They are like the eyes on the backs of our heads that we wish we had!

11) Hmmm

I really want to give this guy the benefit of the doubt and say that he’s just washing the basket.

But then again, what if he isn’t?! We may never know.

12) It’s Not What You Think

Really! It isn’t! Take a closer look and you’ll see that it’s just the reflection in the glass.

Still pretty embarassing though!

13) People, People…

And I mean Walmart. Why have the sign with so much blank space on the bottom? Of course the shopper could just look over and see the blank sheets of paper. But remember, you must think like your shoppers…

14) Rough Day?

Either she’s never pumped gas before or is just having a rough go. I wonder if she looked around and saw how others were doing it. Probably not. I’m sure she would have seen that she was being recorded!

15) You Won This Time

Ouch! An error message would have sufficed.

I hope they got their money back and that their feet are okay!

Aw, his dad is so proud that he wanted to take a photo of his spiffy son. But dad also kinda ruined the photo.

Thanks, dad.

17) Smile!

Well, this would have been a nice family photo… Thank goodness for the ability to crop!

Let’s just hope mom didn’t see this!

18) Follow the Directions…

Sometimes being in a hurry can set you back. This all could have been avoided! Now, they (literally) have to pay the price for it.

But do notice that there aren’t any cones where they veered off… Who’s really at fault here?

19) How?

Now this is pretty awful. There’s a good chance that their vehicle was swept away into the water. Gone but this photo makes it so it is not forgotten.

When AAA has to call AAA… Definitely not a good look!

You mean to tell me that there is an entire aisle dedicated to aspiring diabetics? That is something. It does look pretty enticing.

Somebody put the cutting board inside the oven… Not everybody is a chef. But common sense isn’t so common either.

23) Stick to a Dryer

Putting ones clothes in the microwave is a quick way to burn them. Or worse, start a fire. This guy is lucky.

24) “You’ll never get out!”

Well, this is pretty awful. I hope UPS did something to make up for this travesty!

But it’s UPS so these folks are likely on their own.

25) Keyboard Bath

Who doesn’t love clean keyboards? Apparently, soaking them in hot water isn’t the right way to go about cleaning them…

26) Messaged Not Received

Aww how sweet! Don’t you just love parents? They’re the best. It’s funny how as they get older, we become the ones who begin to teach them.

27) “Don’t touch that button!”

Too late. Another classic example of having to parent our parents! His mom began pressing buttons in his new car.

But look how chill he is about it. No pun intended.

28) Lunch on the Go

Someone lost their lunch on the orange line! Funny thing is, the guy in front of the photographer also took a photo of the door. I wonder who grabbed it when the doors opened…

29) Uh-oh

When you put the Cup O’ Noodles in the microwave without any water… Oh, the despair. It’s like his soul just knew how badly he messed up.

30) Muddin’?

Again? Are we really in that much of a hurry? Or maybe people just aren’t paying enough attention.

Apparently, the driver decided to make an illegal U-turn… Welp.

31) “This looks good.”

Anytime you take photos with wildlife, you have to be vigilant! There’s simply no telling what they might do. Sometimes, we’re just food to them.

34) Sour 16

Not all 16’s are sweet. This one took a turn for the worse when the cake fell. Maybe they had cookies and brownies nearby?

35) Whoopsie!

When throwing your kids around goes wrong. It happens, people! Apparently, this woman is still getting flak for tossing her kid out in front of her.

The song not the cheesecake! Oh man. That’s definitely going to leave a stain. On her lap and in my heart.

Cheesecake is just too good to be wasted!

38) Mind Your Manners

When posing for a photo goes horribly wrong. I’m thinking she tossed the camera out after this. Hopefully at them. After she erased all of her photos of course.

When you ask a stranger to take a photo of you and you partner but they have other plans. Darn autofocus.

Selfie next time!

Well maybe they never allowed the pet on the couch? Okay, let’s face it. They probably have. They just want to sell the darn thing. But judging by its appearance, not sure it’s really worth $250?

48) “How’d those get there?”

When mom wants a photo of your new space but you accidentally send her photos of your bed with your handcuffs still on them. Some things just can’t be made up.
