16 People Who Took On A Little More Than They Could Handle

Diply 3 Jul 2018

We all go a little overboard sometimes. If you don't immediately take the words "all you can eat" like someone just slapped you with a glove and challenged you to a duel, I applaud your willpower.

But those miserable moments that leave us hunched over a toilet teach us where our limits are, and sooner or later, we all end up finding them.

It doesn't take a genius to pinpoint when these people found theirs.

1. It's subtle, but you can see the slow realization that this guy's classroom antics went too far in his eyes.

I love how he's got a book and a chair up there like this is natural. I don't think his faking it is making it, though.

2. To be fair to the driver, I don't know why they give parking lots these weird little islands anyway.

"Oh, of course, my truck had to get stuck so we could make room for the pit of dying shrubbery. It really ties the lot together."

3. Ooh, I don't know what this guy had against the person he was gonna be the next morning, because this just crosses the line into self-cruelty.

I guess it's still better than driving in his condition, but no amount of saved cab fare is worth this.

4. However, you don't have to walk the path of the urinal sleeper to rack up some regrets.

I don't know what this guy normally does, but he's obviously trying to impress the wrong crowd here.

That's not even your middle finger, dude. They aren't your real friends.

5. Ooh, this very youthful mama is suddenly not having a very happy Mother's Day.

I think the young'un is about to learn why you lowball it when you guess people's ages. It's just too bad this lesson is only hard on the mom.

6. I can't say I know much about the situation here, but I think we can safely call the results sub-optimal.

Haha, it's kind of sad when I'm being safer in trying to describe what happened than whoever owned these pants was with them.

7. Don't worry, soda fountain. I think a lot of people who try to use you know that struggle all too well.

You might balk at the idea that this counts as a "person," but what else can it be to speak to my soul like this?

8. Unfortunately, I'm afraid this defense mechanism only works for turtles.

I don't know if an exam or a presentation has this dude trying to pull a disappearing act, but there's no escaping the teacher's watchful gaze.

At least, not if you leave your bag on your desk.

9. Well, this person gets points for thinking on the fly, but not even zip ties can magically unflatten this tire. 

Reddit | SuperCub

Nope, that's obviously a job for duct tape. And now you know why taking automotive advice from me is a bad idea.

10. Somehow, I get the feeling that wasn't the only gallon she was holding. It's just the one that met its tragic end.

Reddit | CamRhi357

But as far as I can tell, she's not crying about it. That's the first step towards recovering from any milk-related mishap.

11. I think it's a law of the universe that if any truck's gonna tip over, it's the one carrying the fancy cars.

Reddit | Matze_827

I wonder if the pressure just got to the driver. Like, this wouldn't have happened if people told them it was all Kias.

12. Welp, I think anyone who braves this wiry web is automatically taking on more than they can handle.

Reddit | Whic285

I'm not even sure what you could do about this besides hope it doesn't explode, which seems to be the local policy from the looks of things.

13. I can't sleep on planes either, but I've never been so desperate that I was willing to risk identity theft over it.

Instagram | @menshumor

I have to give some props to whoever rides with him hard enough to take that risk and give him a second one, though.

14. Even though this girl wrote a check her stomach couldn't cash, I'll respect that she made it as far as she did.

Instagram | @kalesalad

I could probably take on this challenge, but that's because years of unhealthy decisions have trained me for it.

You can't just run a marathon.

15. The only saving grace here is that this is a henna tattoo — because this tattoo would still be regrettable even if it was well-executed.

Twitter | @scixpmas

I mean, it says "refuse to sink," and that is literally an anchor's entire job. Maybe a balloon...from a different artist?

16. They're all laughing because it's easier than trying to figure out how this mishap was even possible.

Reddit | Spinachioo

Like, no matter how many directions I theoretically move my head in, I'm not finding a position that lets me get between the bars.

It's probably good I'm not there.
