24 People Whose Days Were Over Before They Started

Would you rather know from the get-go that your day was gonna suck, or would you prefer to get blindsided by it halfway through?

I know that's not really a fun question to ask, but it makes me curious. If it's gonna happen anyway, I think I'd rather know it's coming than just suddenly end up facedown in some bullcrap.

I'm not sure if any of these unlucky folks would agree, though.

1. I'm wondering how this happened and why the screen is still on, but I think they're just wondering why the world hates them.

Worse yet, they have an 8-hour flight ahead of them. And the way things are going, the in-flight movie's gonna be Justice League.

2. Shout-out to this kid for not straight-up bawling about this, but it definitely looks like he's not enjoying himself right now.

And considering how terrifying everyone else looks here, I'd probably be a little worried if he was having a good time.

How do I avoid whatever this is forever?

3. Unless scientists have developed pregnant tires without telling us, I'm guessing this really isn't supposed to happen.

It's sort of like when someone puts a rubber glove on their head and blows it up, except it's somehow even less safe to do on the highway.

4. Aww, the most tragic part about this little ruse was how close it was to working.

Her ex's jimmies were good and rustled until he suddenly noticed how familiar her new beau looked.

I like how he still didn't completely figure out what was going on, though.

5. Whatever this guy did, he messed up so bad that even the next table is embarrassed.

All I know is the harder you flap your arms while you try to explain yourself, the worse it's going for you. And this dude might as well start taking flight.

6. To be fair, whoever laid this concrete did our friendly cyclist dirty by not putting a sign up.

Reddit | Onion_Do_Piaza

Somehow, I have my doubts that this person will feel so proud of the fact that their bike is warning others about the dangers ahead.

Those things aren't cheap.

7. I like a friendly neighborhood spider bro as much as the next weirdo, but I'd still throw the whole drink away here.

Reddit | Reddit

After all, the fizz of that soda makes it really difficult to see if I'm drinking spider eggs.

That's not a gamble I wanna take.

8. Yikes, even the dog seems confused and shocked about the grooming disaster that he just survived.

Instagram | Instagram

Someday, he's gonna tell his grandchildren about that time he looked like somebody put the head of a bootleg dog plush toy on a turkey.

That'll make a chilling war story.

9. You know, I'm starting to believe that cartoon characters actually walk among us.

Reddit | 4dolfin

I mean, that's the only way I can understand how an antique safe suddenly dropped on a car like this.

Wait, does this mean that Space Jam was a documentary?

10. Ooh, harsh realizations like this are why I don't look at my phone as soon as I wake up.

Instagram | @x__antisocial_butterfly__x

Getting out of bed is hard enough when the first thing the internet spits at me isn't a reminder that even land masses are bigger players than me.

11. Aww man, it's really got its nose to the ground, too. 

Instagram | @x__antisocial_butterfly__x

Either the pupper is not in the mood for venison or the wind is being seriously disrespectful. Like, the deer's not even trying to hide behind the hydrant or anything.

It's just struttin' like it owns the place.

12. I guess we're dealing with a kingdom so magical that even a bench next to trash can seems like a good place to propose to somebody.

Instagram | @will_ent

I don't know, maybe getting upstaged by another couple makes a love story more romantic than I thought.

13. When a day starts with ruining your lunch and your shoes at the same time, it would take a winning lottery ticket to set it right.

Instagram | @streetcatto

But sadly, on a day like this, that ticket will be exactly one number off from the winner.

Nobody needs that.

14. A really crappy job makes you wade through literal trash, but this person has it even worse.

Reddit | ThatChadguy

I'm pretty sure that making someone pick up each piece of trash themselves would normally be cruel and unusual punishment, but for them, it's only Tuesday.

A moment of silence...

15. I think that even letting a pizza melt in the oven is less embarrassing than being defeated by butter.

Reddit | Ronoc-The-Viking

Especially since the real culprit is whoever made that knife. They might as well just replace the handle with the butter since it's obviously much stronger.

16. OK, so this isn't exactly the end of the world, but I can only take it as blatant disrespect when my instructions get ignored this hard.

Instagram | @streetcatto

Like, do I have an evil twin who keeps asking for the manager? I swear I'm innocent!

17. Oh, good. It looks like we've found something worse than making the toilet overflow at your friend's house.

Instagram | @streetcatto

I don't know about y'all, but I always felt that my nightmares were missing about five hours of guilty chiseling. Remind me not to visit Antarctica.

18. Believe it or not, the real tragedy here isn't that this person will have to spend a shift in bored silence.

Reddit | Efoxy83

No, it's that stopping the rock was not only possible all along, but also much easier than we ever could have imagined.

19. In this case, I'd say the day is over before it started, because figuring out how to get this out will probably take all 24 hours.

Reddit | Joey12725

I just hope that whatever's in that package isn't fragile, because somebody's gonna have to sacrifice the box.

20. It's a good thing nobody sings that song about the Batmobile losing its wheel anymore, because it would probably bring back this person's painful memories.

Reddit | GreenTheWicked

Between the tow truck and the cost to replace this thing, this is barely better than losing the whole car.

21. We won't know how bad this person's day is until we figure out who put this cube on her head.

Reddit | ohsureyoudo

If Jigsaw did it and she's taking the bus to get it removed, then that answers that.

If she did it herself, I have some follow-up questions.

22. Other than to point out this exact thing, I'm not sure why this elevator even has a mirrored ceiling.

Instagram | @meme.w0rld

I think that architects were just being jerks about people's hairlines all along and they just tricked us into thinking mirrored ceilings are something classy buildings have.

23. This person thought they were safe by not hiring their ex as their contractor, but little did they know their troubles were just beginning.

Instagram | @x__antisocial_butterfly__x

Wherever this person's trying to go after this, I hope they're not planning on getting there in a hurry.

24. Ouch, I'm pretty sure that the floor would legit provide a more comfortable sleep than that strange monstrosity.

Instagram | @will_ent

And yes, that includes the part where people accidentally step on you as they get up to pee. At least I don't get nerve pinches from that.
