15+ People Who Finally Made Things Work For Them

Diply 1 Aug 2018

No matter how much we love ourselves, there are usually a couple of things we're not too proud of. But what's great about life — I know, I know, stay with me — is that those kinda unwelcome traits can come in handy sometimes.

For instance, I often wish I could shed my weight like a snakeskin when I run for the bus. But when someone pushes me at a metal show? Haha, good luck, buddy.

And I'm apparently not alone because these folks also had stuff work out for them in ways they probably didn't expect.

1. Yeah, I don't know how we let them get away with leaving us without a complete set for so long.

And so, we won't just throw this little table aside when we tear open our pizzas. We'll place them down gently because that's what they deserve.

2. In a way, these people got really lucky because combining the awfulness of floods and train stations shouldn't be this enjoyable.

There's something to be said for starting your vacation before you even get there. The water will probably be warmer where you're going, though.

3. Ah, it's nice to see someone using the single life as an opportunity to get creative with something besides the sounds we make while crying.

After all, this will probably go a lot further towards making our crush jealous than sobbing in different octaves.

4. Even though it's probably not true, I'd love to think this person was wondering what they were gonna do with their oddly-shaped watermelon slice until now.

Although, biting it into that shape without more coming off than you want is impressive on its own.

5. I'm glad TJ thought of this before he set up a camera because nobody wants to live with the FBI.

I wonder if that's how undercover investigations even started. Like, Og wanted to find out if Grog took his meat, so he dressed like a mammoth.

6. Uh...no, I can't say a river would be my first choice for a place to play pinball either, but that's what's happening.

Reddit | SuperDuperJake2

OK, fine. I can't really pretend that 10-year-old me didn't wish this would happen every time somebody made me interact with nature.

7. If this man can make awkward staring work for him this hard, there's definitely still hope for the rest of us.

And based on his expression in that second picture, I'm guessing he's also hoping for a pinball machine to suddenly appear on his nature hike.

8. The company had better be careful with how they approach this question because playing with our emotions has some serious consequences.

A careless "Yes!" will make the product sell out in seconds, but it's also a really quick way to catch a class-action lawsuit when we're still sad afterwards.

9. I don't know where this is, but it looks like the kind of place where an explicitly pettable dog is sorely needed.

I mean, name me a place with a floor like this where I won't have to wait for something for a really long time.

10. I know that it's important to keep that thang on you, but only somebody this smart will remember to include a backup.

You just never know when someone's gonna invite you to a movie, and you don't wanna get stuck paying ridiculous prices for snacks.

11. Most people pick a purse based on style or space, but choosing based on its happiness might be the new wave.

Because even if it doesn't cheer you up when it constantly smiles at you, you can hold it in front of your face on Mondays.

12. Well, well, well, it seems like a poker face and a rearview mirror can make a deadly combination.

We're lucky that this clever devil can't punch us through the internet, but let's have a moment of slience for whoever's in the back seat.

13. If it has to feel like you live in an oven, you should at least get to treat your car like one.

There's something to be said for having dessert already baked by the time you come back from your commute.

14. I don't know whether this guy can't grow this much hair or he's mourning a lost ponytail, but I'm glad he found a way to cope.

Reddit | pudgeypoo

I'm glad my friend who got his ponytail caught in a fan didn't see this, though.

He'd probably have regrets.

15. It's a little more cumbersome than the original, but I feel confident that nobody's gonna have to replace this again.

Reddit | 5oy5auce

Sure, it's just as easy to break as the real one, and it's a bigger target, but nobody's trying to catch seven years of bad luck.

16. It's dangerous not to have a fire extinguisher, but one clever Pokémaster has found the solution.

Reddit | import-that

It's not that they're passing the buck to Squirtle. It's just that if someone wants to get rid of this, they have to replace the extinguisher first.

It's super effective!

17. Well, I guess we found the only person in the world who thought, "Finally, my masterpiece is complete" when Kim Kardashian released this picture.

Instagram | @meme.w0rld

They needed something that looked right but was ridiculous enough to make the other guys' faces make sense.

They can rest now.

18. Who knew that the solution to third-wheeling was to give your buddies some wheels of their own?

Reddit | Malaqai

He doesn't have to awkwardly look at them, and they don't have to worry about including him.

As long as they somehow luck out and don't crash, it's perfect!

19. Huh, it's not often that we see someone make this kind of progress in real time.

Hmm, notice how when Cole was "a pal," he didn't make any awkward comments about how much they look like a couple?

I don't know, it might be a clue.

20. Wow, this person's obviously doing something right if telling a stranger they love them resulted in anything besides an awkward silence.

Instagram | @realbigmoods

So I can only wonder, how intense is this traffic if it's instantly causing people to form loving bonds? Will their grandkids hear about it?

21. As long as that fish doesn't wriggle out of his grasp, this man just got a winning idea to go with his winning smile.

I've seen all the ways Grandpa Simpson's teeth got messed up, and I don't want the same thing to happen to him.

22. I suppose that if a dad's gonna try to enforce a dress code, this is the way to do it.

Reddit | amh404

I just wish schools would have the same policy because watching teachers begrudgingly put on shirts with middle fingers on them would never get old.

23. I have to appreciate how cool this man is keeping it considering he's almost at the end of a 14-year wait here.

Reddit | GainzRUs

Because if he put this work in, you know he's been waiting on the sequel ever since he stepped out of the first one.

24. Now, this is how you get your hustle on. I don't wanna meet the reader brave enough to do their job with this in place.

Sure, it may only buy them a day or two before they come back, but that's enough time for a GoFundMe.
