15+ People Who Weren’t Paying Attention and Paid The Price

It is crucial that you always pay attention in life, as the smallest lapse in concentration could mean you make the easiest of misteaks.

And, to prove the extent to which some people's lack of concentration has caused havoc in the lives of others, here are 15+ people who weren't paying attention and paid the price!

"She's tired of being played!"

It is amazing that they couldn't get the "you're" right once. Or, maybe the tattooist realised after the first one but wanted to keep it consistent?

"Man got stuck on his balcony in shorts and a t-shirt during a blizzard."

Fortunately, the person who posted this said that someone else managed to throw him a jacket and the fire department were ultimately able to break into his flat and let him back in.

"I hate when that happens!"

People are always losing their bottom teeth! I mean, if I had a penny for every time I found someone's bottom teeth left on a table when I worked at Costa, then I'd have...well, you don't want to know how many pennies.

"A mom for 4 years, and I am a parent officially today. I stepped on my first Lego!"

I'm impressed that they managed to go four years without incurring this pain on their person! However, you can't let your guard down for a second when you have kids, as that split second is when the Lego will strike.

Never Would Have Guessed That It Was A "Home Job"!

Never mind that they never got what they wanted, the line-work on that tattoo is pretty off as well!

"Rail installed, boss!"

"I mean, do you really need access to those doors?"

"I really think that you're missing the point as to why I'm angry Dave."

"The cameraman needs a talking to..."

And by a "talking to," I am assuming that they mean that whoever is responsible for this should get a raise!

"Right... So, that's called 'the price.'"

I still reckon that this brings in a worrying amount of people who are genuinely excited by this offer.

"Asked my husband to label our leftovers, 'Sure babe' he tells me."

Well, by the age old law of writing your name on items of food, this now belongs to their husband!

"This is how I remind people to drink plenty of water these days."

I suppose that the message is quite positive at least, the letter could have done with some...aligning.

"I don't think I had to wash that."

Now you just need to put it out on the line to dry and it should be fine. Either that or put it on a spin and drain with a load of rice.

"Ate while driving, so didn't pay attention. Got most of the way through when I realized the chicken was 100% raw. Hope I don't die later."

Okay, so I guess that I'd rather have one large chunky nugget than a raw nugget! How did they not realise sooner? The texture of raw chicken is horrific!

"Lemme grab some of this while y'all are busy."

When you have a cat lurking around the place, you always need to be aware that they're plotting to steal any food item, or bottle top, that they can.

"Dad says, 'Google is doing this stupid thing where the blur the top left part of the results. Facebook is doing it too actually.' He melted the top left corner of his screen.

"Mmmm, this candle really smells of burning plastic! What scent is it?"

"I think it's called essence of Chromebook."

"Maybe this is why you should pay attention to the signs at the entrance to the pedestrian walkway.""

"Dad, I think that says that this is pedestrians only."

"Pfft, those are more like guidelines than actual rules."

"Are...are you just quoting Pirates Of the Caribbean?"


"A local baker decorated this cake and even took pictures before realising it was the wrong side up."

I mean, it looks absolutely delicious, so that's something I guess! Although, this would be incredibly annoying for the baker. It's just such an obvious mistake!

"Ordered my kid a 6 piece nugget meal, this is what he got in his nugget box..."

"Excuse me, this isn't what I ordered for my son, I think there's been a mistake."

"Nope, that's exactly what you ordered. You just need to assemble it yourself...or, disassemble I should say."

"Left my covid vaccine card in my pocket on laundry day."

Thankfully, one very helpful person was able to point out this little work around, "Get the card dirty. It undoes the wash." Who knew?

"Wasn't paying attention while painting and drinking tea, guess which one I just took a sip of?"

Ah yes, the refreshing taste of paint juice! It's really good for you as well...actually, no, the opposite!
