24 Situations That Were Maybe A Little Overkill

Diply 12 Oct 2017

Look, the last thing I wanna do is stop people from having their fun and blowing off some much-needed steam. We need that in our lives or we'll explode.

Yet, we also need to be able to rein things in before the property damage comes out to more than what's in everyone's bank accounts.

And so I present this list as a handy guide to when things are getting out of hand.

1. I know that schools are full of dumb reasons to ostracize people, but "weird pencil case" takes the cake.

Does nobody in that class have a sense of smell? Because you'd think it would be super easy to tell that's not a real fish.

2. OK, no. I refuse to accept that Pennywise is real.

Either this is Photoshop, or Tim Curry is really going to some lengths to prove he runs this clown game.

Either way, somebody needs to chill because our real lives have had enough clown surprises.

3. Whoa, somebody might be getting a little hasty here.

Before you base jump off the ivory tower, maybe hit up the professor's office hours or something? They'll be really excited to help because pretty much nobody bothers to show up and they get lonely.

4. OK, I know things have been crazy lately, but I think the grim reaper's jumping the gun a little bit.

Man, I'm gonna feel really dumb if that shadow just turns out to be an air conditioner with a bird on it or something.

5. This is a nice thought, but this person will never be able to get rid of the steady stream of broke adults now.

When we hear someone's giving out food, we're like an ant infestation. If you let us come, we'll never leave.

6. That said, I guess this teaches us that there's worse attention to attract than from unusually large trick-or-treaters.

One reason I could never be a cop is that I have no idea how you're supposed to start the "is that severed leg real" conversation.

7. Yeah, pranks are fun and all, but bait-and-switching a teenager with a fake car is playing a dangerous game.

If I ever end up seeing a kid egg their own house, at least I'll be able to understand why.

8. I don't know, there has to be an easier way than this.

Instagram | @nochill

Let's just say that jamming spikes into my hand every time I wake up isn't all that likely to suddenly make me a morning person.

Just put it in a hard-to-reach place.

9. I'm not gonna deny that I'm impressed and kind of mind-boggled that this teacher got up there...but why, tho?

Instagram | @kalesalad

Like, if she wanted to stop kids from cheating, you'd think that just staying in the room would be a lot more productive.

10. Yikes! When the cuteness of a cat causes a jealous argument, that relationship ain't lasting.

Granted, there could be a piece of the puzzle that I'm missing here, but I have a feeling I don't wanna know what it is.

11. I'm sorry, but this man just took his dadness way too far here.

Instagram | @x__antisocial_butterfly__x

I mean, one knife? That's fine — it's a time-honored tradition to mock your kids' tattoos with a stern face...

But two knives? What an absolute maniac!

12. Um, are y'all sure? Because this looks like it would be really uncomfortable.

I don't like doing dishes any more than this daring trailblazer does, but at some point, you just have to realize when the price is too high.

13. Well, well, well. Look what happens when you try to showboat during Final Jeopardy.

Instagram | Instagram

Even the guy who had pretty much no reason to expect he would win knew not to risk it all on a geography question.

The rest of y'all need to chill.

14. I'm sure bae appreciates the cake, but I can't imagine what could deserve a visit from the devil.

Instagram | @girlsthinkimfunny

Like, did he delete their wedding video, take a picture of himself deleting it, and have that picture made into toilet paper or something?

15. Either some lines of communication got crossed here or that dump truck's bed is made of pure gold.

You may think I'm talking nonsense, but are you gonna tell me you haven't heard of weirder ways people have spent their money?

16. For real, either he's a lumberjack or they're hiking in double time because nobody gets a lunch break that long.

Instagram | @mememang

Either way, it's really not fair to stunt on all of the half-hour people like this, y'all. That's messed up.

17. I can buy that a little mess gives a car some character, but I think something this extreme is pretty much casting it as the villain.

Instagram | @memes_supplier

At the same time, I can't think of anybody who would be lining up to clean this out.

18. Well, you can certainly do a lot worse for reasons to cry, but I think somebody told this girl wrong.

Instagram | @x__antisocial_butterfly__x

Huh, it turns out she was half-right. The Doobert is made up, but his first name actually is Scoobert. What?!

Never mind, this isn't overkill.

19. Yikes, I'd like to think that somebody went really overboard on their Halloween costume one year.

Instagram | Instagram

The question is, did they turn it in because it was a disaster or because it worked too well and now feels like a costume crutch?

20. I guess it's good to know this product does its job, but I'm not sure we needed that level of detail.

Instagram | @menshumor

I guess this is what you get when the only qualification you're looking for is "has read a magazine."

21. OK, yes, thank you. I'll stop. Just one of these would have done the job fine.

Reddit | spilledbeans

None of these signs are capable of saying anything, and I still really wanna tell them to shut up. I suppose that takes some talent.

22. Wow, I really need to know what this person did to deserve such a severe response.

Twitter | @CakeLikeBeth

I feel like if things continue to escalate, we're gonna have to get Batman on the case because I think we've got a student of Mr. Freeze here.

23. I know there's no way to hide it under the mat, but this is only gonna protect the package from its owner.

Instagram | @kalesalad

I know these delivery drivers are deathly afraid of knocking for some reason, but this is just being a menace.

24. I get the feeling that somebody tripped over this and vowed to one day get their revenge.

Reddit | blandisgrand

I'm gonna take a wild guess that the psychological tactic isn't gonna work, but don't worry —
I'm sure they'll have their justice eventually.
