15+ Things That Weren’t What People Expected

Nobody knows what to expect from life. And even when we think that we have a very clear idea of what's going to happen, that is when life can throw you a particularly strange curve ball!

So with this idea in mind, please enjoy these 16+ things that really weren't what people expected!

A General Warning...

Based upon the constant stream of insanity that the world has been throwing at us over the last few years, I think that this is a pretty appropriate warning sign!

"Diner across where I work is offering some wild deals to bring in more customers."

"Hi, table for four please! Also, I think that there is a bit of a typo on your sign out front, it says 'eat kids free' and not 'kids eat free.'"

"Nope. There is no typo."


"When you're working from home and you hit video instead of audio."

This poor person, no idea that their delightful snooze is being broadcasted to the rest of the company. At least they look comfortable.

"If only they knew someone who could fix that dent..."

And when they say "We bring the shop to you," they mean that they will ram the shop into you and give you a new dent for free!

"A sign at the vets."

"Pfft, my cat doesn't think I'm a loser! Right, Mittens?"

Meows judgementally...

Well, that's a little unsettling!

I mean, I think that it is really good work from whoever did it. But it looks like Leela has seen some stuff here.

"American pool table."

Well, it's not what I expect out of a pool table but dear Lord, I want a game on this thing now.

"Daughter made this for me a couple years ago. Looked at the back today."

Wow, those are some harsh words from this person's daughter. They got them real early with the nihilism at this school!

Introducing, Joots!

This is exactly what I expected from a product called "Joots." However, what I am floored by is the fact that someone made these things in the first place.

*Existential Honking*

So if I honk, do I then cease to exist? Although how would I be there to honk in the first place if I never existed?

"This truck has a jellyfish launcher."

"Have you got enemies? Do you need a way to get back at them on the move? Well, you need look no further than the Jellyfish Launcher add-on pack, this comes with..."

"Let me stop you right there, you had me at Jellyfish Launcher."

"Got Pokémon stickers today. One wasn't like the others!"

Quite simply, don't do drugs kids. They can wreak havoc on your life and leave even the strongest Pokemon irreparably changed!

"Nailed it..."

I can't really talk, as they did a much better job than I would probably be able to manage.

"Hope my kid has good insurance..."

Never park your stroller in the wrong neighborhood, this is day one parenting stuff. People will steal anything!

"This horse statue near my town looks like Jar Jar Binks mid-sneeze."

Maybe this town are secretly massive Star Wars fans? Actually, that still wouldn't explain why they would have a statue of this character, so I'm all out of ideas.

"That's genius, right?"

I never understood the point about genius being "99% perspiration" anyway. You can sit in a steam room doing nothing as long as you want and still achieve very little!

"We hope..."

"So, can I meet the ghost before I buy the chair?"

"Sadly, no, that's part of the mystery of it."

"But, what if the ghost is a bit of a ass?"

"Well...that's just the risk you take."

"You did your best, chef."

Wow, I don't think that I have ever quite so clearly seen a man give up on life as this chef. It'll be okay man, it'll stink in there for a while sure, but it'll be okay...probably!

Beating The Subway's Rules About Dogs...

I actually see a lot of myself in this dog. This is exactly what I look like when I'm crawling out of my bed to get a cup of coffee most mornings.


This is presumably for when you need to... Nope, I can't do it. I can't think of a single instance where this would be necessary.
