We have all left our homes thinking everything was okay. We were wrong, though. Minutes or possibly hours later, we realize that things are not exactly fine. We might have forgotten our wallets, which is always unpleasant.
Generally, it is kind of hard to leave your home without your keys, but it definitely happens once in a while. It is the worst when we leave our homes without our mobile phones.
Things can be a lot worse, though. Sometimes people do things that make everyone wonder what they were thinking.
Here are seventeen examples of people doing things that they thought were fine—or they would be fine—but they definitely were not.
1. The Label
I don’t know if this label really made it clear, but Marc Jacobs had a lot to do with this particular garment. The message is subtle, but I managed to pick up on the fact.
Marc Jacobs apparently likes himself a lot.
For what it is worth, though, he probably deserves to like himself a lot. He is a pretty interesting person, really. A few years back, he was considered one of the more influential people in the world, and he still is very influential. The 55-year-old fashion designer has also won several awards.
2. The Beverage That Someone Expected to Pass For Coffee
This is not coffee. It could not pass for coffee anywhere. I am not sure what it looks like. It is not good, though. It kind of looks like milk, but a really disgusting milk that is obviously spoiled and no one would want to drink. Whoever left their home in this case thinking they would enjoy a nice cup of coffee was clearly mistaken.
You kind of have to feel bad for the person who bought this, don’t you? They are probably out a bit of money.
The person who made it should probably lose his or her job. Mistakes happen, and I understand that, but this is completely unacceptable. It is too disgusting to be forgiven.
3. The Geode Rock Cake
I am sure that the people that made this cake thought it was fine. Honestly, at first glance, I thought it was fine. I thought it was unusual, certainly, but I thought it was fine. The cake looks great. It costs more than I would generally want to pay for a cake, for sure, but it looks neat.
Apparently, though, some people have the ability to make anything sort of dirty. Now that I really look at it, I see the issue.
Can you imagine having to discuss that particular issue at a meeting with other managers? What an uncomfortable experience. Also, it is a shame that we will not get to see what the mushroom cake looks like.
4. The High School Student and the Shirt
Clearly, this high school student was not thinking very clearly when he left the house in this shirt in order to get that picture taken. I am guessing there is more to the shirt than what is visible. He probably just did not consider how much of the shirt would be visible when the picture was taken.
He looks pretty happy to be someone who considers himself a failure, so we are definitely not seeing the whole shirt. He will probably turn out to live a very enjoyable life, in fact. The kid probably has a great sense of humor about himself.
5. The Mayonnaise and the Peanut Butter Cups
Anyone who puts mayonnaise on candy is sort of disturbed. Personally, I am not a fan of either mayonnaise or peanut butter cups, but the combination just makes both products seem a thousand times worse.
If there is indeed a person who combines the two, she needs serious help.
A lot of people do not know what mayonnaise actually is. The sauce, which is commonly used on sandwiches, is made from egg yolk, oil, and some form of food-based acid—typically lemon juice or vinegar. Recipes for the stuff date back to the 19th century, but it has probably existed for far longer.
It is particularly popular in Russia, where it is typically made with soybean oil or sunflower oil. It is also very popular in the United States; sales of the product in the country are over $1 billion every year.
6. The Person With the Television
Many of us have been in this position. You buy something that you need to take home, but your car just is not big enough to properly transport it.
Still, what are you going to do? You have already spent a lot of money, right? You either have to hire a delivery service or shove it in your vehicle somehow.
In this case, someone tried to make it work. It appears as if the attempt is sort of working. It is not working well, but it is sort of working.
It would be a real shame if the television fell out of the car, though. That’s a pretty big television. I bet it is a nice one, too. It would also be pretty dangerous to other drivers if it fell out of the car.
7. The Bones That Have a Peculiar Taste
It really is a valid point. In most cases, you don’t know what things taste like. You know what your food tastes like, but that is because you regularly eat it. Other objects, though, you don’t and probably shouldn’t know what they taste like.
For example, have you ever tasted the remote control to your television? I have not. If you have, you might be a bit on the strange side. If you have ever licked your refrigerator, you might have a genuine problem. People should not be licking their appliances. That is just weird.
Licking random bones that have been dug up to find out what they taste like? That might be the sign of mental insanity.
8. The Sign and the Kidnapping
The point, frankly, is a completely true one. It does sort of look like the guy on the sign is stealing a baby. I know that is not the case, but it does sort of look that way.
It is a curious restroom sign. I understand what it is trying to convey, but I would think twice about going into it. You really have to wonder what the designer was thinking. It seems like he or she was not thinking at all, honestly.
9. The Bruise On the Lip
This is a terrible situation, and you can’t help but feel sort of bad for the young woman in this image. Bad things always seem to occur when an important event is about to occur—at least in my experience. Who among us hasn’t gotten a pimple on their nose the day of a first date? If you haven’t, you’re one of the lucky ones.
Stress can do awful things to the body.
Granted, this young woman sort of did it to herself. In most cases, you probably do not need to use lip enhancers before a job interview. Your potential employers are probably far more concerned with your job history. Still, appearances are important, and this woman clearly cared.
It would be great to think that she got the job. However, I am guessing that she did not.
10. The Person Who People Think Works At Target
There is nothing wrong with working at Target, obviously; however, it is embarrassing when people think you are an employee of a store you do not technically work at.
It happens a lot, actually. If you just happen to dress in similar clothing to store employees and you spend any amount of time in that store, a person will inevitably assume you work there. The conversation that follows is almost always awkward. They feel bad for thinking you work there, and you feel like an idiot due to your outfit.
Target is a pretty great company, though. After Wal-Mart, it is the biggest department store retailer in the US. It was founded over a century ago, and it employs over 300,000 people.
11. The Person With the Food Post
It is not nice to post pictures of your food after you have already eaten it.
Arguably, it is not nice to post pictures of your food at all. There are a lot of people who have empty refrigerators—probably because they have been too lazy to go to the store—and they don’t want to end up hungry because you want to brag about the food you are about to eat or have eaten.
I am sure the pot roast was delicious. We did not need to see a picture of the empty plate or the dirty spoon.
Dirty dishes are kind of gross. Nobody wants to see those.
12. The Guy and the Health Problems
From what I understand based on this particular image, this guy ended up with kidney failure and diabetes. He was eating a lot of pizza, though, as well as mozzarella sticks. While delicious, they are not known to be health foods.
At a certain point, you have to accept the consequences of your really terrible diet and really poor health choices.
I do not know what happened to him, but it probably was not good.
If you eat 5,000 calories in one day, you are definitely asking for trouble.
13. The Gift For Mother’s Day
This does seem like a sweet gift in theory. Who wouldn’t want to fall asleep on pillows that look just like their nephews?
I am guessing that a lot of people would not like to do so, especially after looking at these images. They are very creepy. I am guessing that the person who received these woke up thinking everything would be fine; however, things did not turn out fine. Seriously, though, what kind of business sells such things? They really are horrifying.
14. The Flood
It isn’t often that you see fish swimming outside of your house. If that happens, you are clearly in an emergency
situation. Something is going terribly wrong.
I am assuming that flood waters are damaging this home, which means it is probably beyond repair. The image is quite cool, though.
All we can do is hope that everyone in the house escaped safely. The door seems to be doing a good job of keeping the water out, which is definitely a great thing.
15. The Person and the Windshield
If you are missing a windshield, you should not be travelling in your car when you leave your house. Also, I am pretty sure that umbrellas won’t do much good. They don’t really work as windshields.
It does not even look like it is raining in this picture. If it is not, what is the point of the umbrella? Is the person in the car just trying to get attention? Also, you have to wonder how an entire windshield breaks; generally, when that happens, the car no longer runs.
16. The Evacuation Plan
If you are working for a company or going to a school and the evacuation plan is “run”, you should probably be very concerned. That is not a great plan.
The best course of action, in most cases, is to keep as calm as possible. People running around and getting in one
another’s ways is not necessarily the best idea.
The whole idea is funny, though. How often do disasters really happen, right?
