It is easy to get kind of bitter at times. Life can be hard, and it is not always fair. Sometimes, the universe just seems to mess with you on purpose.
A lot of the time, you have every right to be sort of bitter. You have to get over it eventually, of course, but there is nothing wrong with being angry at the world for a day or two.
Here are sixteen examples of situations involving bitter people. In many cases, they were totally justified.
1. The Animal and the Garlic Bread
It is always hard when you are betrayed by a loved one. You expect better from those you trust.
Then again, if your pet steals your food, you probably shouldn’t be surprised. Pets are strange creatures. I am not going to argue that they don’t love you, certainly; I firmly believe that they do. But if they want your food, they are just going to take it when they see there is a chance to so.
You can’t blame them for that, either. Half of the time, your human friends will steal your food if you are not looking and they think they can get away with it. Most of us have had the experience of going out to dinner, excusing ourselves to use the restroom, and then coming back to find less fries on our plate. My friends don’t even bother trying to hide the fact they’ve stolen food from me. In a weird way, I sort of respect them for that.
That said, I don’t think garlic is good for most animals, so I am kind of concerned about that. Hopefully, a trip to the veterinarian was not necessary.
I know for a fact that onions are terrible for dogs. Don’t give your pet any food that contains onions. Even small
amounts can be toxic.
2. The Woman and the Hammer
This picture was apparently taken in Canada, and this woman clearly has a hammer. It is an enormous hammer.
I am not sure I want to know what happened after the picture was taken. I suppose it is possible she was carrying it around for self-defense, sure, but that’s also a strange thing to carry around in order to protect yourself.
Hopefully, she was not going to meet a friend. I would not want to be that friend. If your friend is bringing a hammer like that to meet with you, chances are you have done something terribly wrong.
There is a good chance that this woman is bitter about something.
3. The Guy and the Condoms
I am guessing this was not the most amicable breakup. You generally don’t go buy condoms several times a day in order to taunt your ex. It is kind of funny to think about, really, but I don’t think that is healthy behavior.
At least this person isn’t still “friends” with the ex, though. Is there anything worse than starting a new relationship and having to deal with the fact he or she is clearly still in love with their former partner? That’s not healthy either, and it is a good reason to be sort of bitter about life.
If your new romantic partner still sees his or her ex more than once a week, you should probably reconsider the relationship.
4. The Very Clever Student
This professor seems to be a fantastic person. Technically, there weren’t any rules being broken here, so no fuss was made.
It must be terrible, though, to be completely and totally outsmarted by a person you are supposed to be teaching. Personally, I would resign from my position immediately.
At least the professor has a sense of humor about it all, though. You would sort of have to, I think.
I can’t be sure, but I am guessing that the student in this case will go on to do pretty great things. If you are that clever, you are destined for greatness.
5. The Grandmother and the Actor
There is a good reason to be bitter if you marry the wrong person. Fortunately, if you marry the wrong person, divorce is often an option. However, at times, people just decide to stick it out. That is sort of understandable, I suppose.
The choice to replace a spouse’s face with that of Leonardo DiCaprio seems curious at first, but it sort of makes sense. He is one of the most famous people in the world, and he is kind of an interesting figure when you really think about it. He pretty much got his start on “Growing Pains”, which is an American sitcom that was extremely popular back in the 1980s; no one really watches it anymore, though.
It is hard to say what DiCaprio is best known for. The actor and producer, who is currently 43 years old, became incredibly famous when he starred in “Titanic”, which came out in 1997; however, he has been in a lot of other movies. Recently, he was in “The Great Gatsby” and “The Revenant”.
6. The Xbox
Apparently, in this case, there was no kid. Someone just wanted an Xbox and decided get a bit bitter about not being able to buy one. Telling someone that they made your kid cry is a pretty bold move, really. It isn’t a nice move, certainly, but it is a bold one.
I can understand that. Those consoles, which were created and are owned by Microsoft, can be pretty great. The original Xbox was released in in 2001. It was followed by the Xbox 360, which was released in 2005. That console was followed by the Xbox One, which was released in 2013.
7. The CD
I would be bitter if someone broke my personal property. Also, it is sort of weird that someone had two copies of one compact disc. I don’t know why that would happen.
Believe it or not, compact discs have actually been around for 35 years or so. People don’t use them much these days, but they were once considered the height of technology. You can still buy CD players, though, which suggest that there are people out there who are still using them.
8. The Heated Seat
The person who posted this is clearly bitter towards those who thought he would end up a failure, which is definitely sort of understandable. It is not good to hold on to grudges, really, but almost everyone can sort of relate to those who do.
The post, though, does not really scream success. There are many relatively modest vehicles out there these days that come with heated seats. They are not exactly a new feature. They are a great feature, certainly, but they are not exactly cutting edge.
Also, the guy is using the heated seats to heat up what appears to be McDonald’s. I have nothing against McDonald’s, mind, but a bag of food from a fast food joint doesn’t scream success either.
McDonald’s is, at least in terms of revenue, the world’s biggest fast food chain. That company is definitely a success. Almost 2 million people currently work for a McDonald’s restaurant. Almost 70 million people are served at a McDonald’s restaurant every day.
9. The One About Cole Sprouse
I had to research Cole Sprouse. I am not ashamed to admit that. It seems like everyone is famous these days, after all, and it is hard to keep track of all of the celebrities.
I was immediately embarrassed after I did so, though, as I realized he is the star of one of my favorite new television programs. It is called “Riverdale”. I only started watching it because I heard it was about the Archie Comics, and I just could not figure out how anyone could make that work. The producers, writers, and cast manage to pull it off pretty well, however. It is an interesting show. It is very dark compared to the comics, though.
Archie Comics, by the way, has been around since 1939. That is pretty darn impressive.
10. The Person Drawing the Logo
I suppose this person is bitter about not having money, and that is something many people can relate to. However, it is sort of sad to worry about having name brand socks. No one really sees your socks unless you take your shoes off, and how often do most people take their shoes off while in public?
People obsess way too much about brands, anyway. Just because a piece of clothing has a logo on it, that doesn’t
automatically make it better.
11. The Person Who Tried to Buy the Shoes
I always get bitter when I buy something on the internet and it is not exactly what I was hoping for. That’s the danger of shopping on the internet, really. You might find a lot of great deals, but you can’t take a good look at the product before you spend your money.
In this case, though, it is really hard to feel bad for the person who got ripped off. Who buys shoes that cost over $700 dollars?
12. The Girlfriend and the Pencil
If you are insecure about your relationship, I suppose it makes sense to be bitter when your romantic partner speaks to another person in a way that could be construed as flirting.
However, in this case, a certain person was overreacting a tad. Asking a person for a pencil is not flirting.
I almost never had pencils or pens when I was in high school, and I was constantly bugging my classmates for one.
There was never anything flirtatious about it. I just needed a utensil with which to write.
I suppose the person who posted this has every right to be bitter about the fact the girlfriend has absolutely no trust at all.
13. The Guy and the Dog and the Girlfriend
It is kind of weird that a person takes out an ad to advertise the fact there is an unhappy relationship going on.
However, the girlfriend really does sound sort of terrible.
Also, this might be the funniest description of another human being I have ever read.
I am guessing that the relationship is over; however, I like to think that the poster and the dog are still happily enjoying life together. Pets are the best.
Also, that dog is adorable. Who wouldn’t like that dog? Why would the girlfriend dislike such a lovely creature?
14. The Tattoo About Men
This is a depressing tattoo. Clearly, this person is bitter about failed relationships.
I can understand it, though. I am a man, and I freely admit we can be the worst at the times. People, at times, are just the worst. That’s why so many people earnestly prefer the company of their pets. Thy can be obnoxious, sure, but they rarely hurt you on an emotional level.
15. The Woman With the Fake Injury
This seems like a very extreme way of getting out of spending time with a person. I have to give her points for creativity, certainly, but I didn’t realize we had gotten to the point as a society where we need to take pictures to explain not wanting to do stuff.
What happened to the good old days where you could just tell a person that you were feeling “under the weather” over the phone and then settle in for a nap? Those days should come back. They were good days.
