We all have those days where nothing seems to go our way. The following people really found themselves on the short end of the stick. To make matters worse, these awful moments happened to be caught on camera.
Rollercoaster Of Nightmares
Those who avoid rollercoasters often fear this exact situation. They’re climbing up a completely vertical stretch of rollercoaster track. For those who seek thrills, it seems harmless enough, but we really hope these vacationers bought some travel insurance before they set out on their journey.
Swimming In Soap
Cleaning up your kitchen after a long day is never the most exciting chore. However, the situation becomes considerably worse when you suddenly find your dishwasher spitting bubbles at you. As his minuscule kitchen becomes carpeted in foam, he sits, defeated, head in hands. To make the situation worse, some uncharitable soul in his household thought the situation warranted documentation. His roommate might be kicking him while he’s down, but if he has a good home insurance policy, he very well could have the last laugh.
But First, Coffee
The only thing worse than slipping on ice and falling hard on your bum is spilling your coffee while doing it. Or breaking a limb for that matter. Anyone who found themselves slipping on uncleared ice should probably give their attorney a call. On the bright side, it doesn’t look like too much of this stricken man’s coffee spilled out as he slipped. To make his day worse, though, it looks like he’s headed for a personal injury suit and a big puddle of slush.
Free Car Wash
This is an unfortunate place to have parked your car during a snow storm. It appears the parking garage has sprung a leak at a particularly blustery time of year. The frozen cascade is certainly a sight to behold, though the weather must have been truly frigid for it to have frozen like that. We’re not sure there’s an ice scraper around that can handle a frozen waterfall. He’ll be lucky if he gets a payout from his car insurance policy, otherwise, spring couldn’t come sooner.
People often don’t stop to consider the inherent danger of birthday candles. Considered sweet and innocent, too small to cause problems, in reality, they’re a secret menace. When densely packed together, even little birthday candles form a sheet of fire that must be scrupulously blown out. This woman failed to consider that her hair might be swinging into the flames. Despite the raging inferno on her head, it seems she didn’t notice early enough. This might be the first time a lawsuit was brought against birthday candles.
This man looks rather nonchalant about losing what appears to be half or more of his egg shipment. We’re not sure what caused this mishap, as any experienced “eggs”-porter would know how to transport pallets of filled egg cartons without dropping the majority of them. It’s unlikely this man got to keep his job after messing up so badly, unless he had a really good excuse up his sleeve. Too bad this mishap isn’t likely to be covered by the company’s car insurance.
Well, this woman certainly isn’t Little Miss Muffet, as she continues to relax with a horrifyingly large spider on her arm. That creature is large enough that there’s no way should wouldn’t have felt it as it crept up her arm, inching closer and closer to her face. If this woman isn’t scared of massive spiders, all the more power to her. We probably would have gone screaming straight to the doctor, just to make sure our health insurance covers therapy for giant spider trauma.
Lady In Red
Poor grandma. She was out for her daily walk and just needed to sit for a minute. The newly painted bench was calling her, as the bright red color was designed to do. Unfortunately, this tired lady didn’t see the signs taped to the ground advertising that the paint was wet. We can’t blame her, considering that it’s generally suggested to walk around with your head up. Sadly, she might not even have any legal recourse for her ruined clothing.
One, Two, Nooooo
Parents always dream of having those perfect family portraits in motion, where you and your children are gleefully smiling while clearly being nurtured by your parents. For one family, they seemed to be a little too enthusiastic when it came to joyously swinging their children by the sea. It was dad himself who shared the picture with the world. Intervention by attorney proved to be unnecessary, as the kid was alright, though he might still need an insurance plan that covers therapy when he gets older.
After a heavy rainfall, it’s usually a good idea to stand back from curbs, especially when you see a puddle on the side of the road. While this wave of water caused made such a splash that it’s hard to believe this wasn’t a calculated move, it’s likely that the unsuspecting driver didn’t realize how deep the water was. As bad as it might look in the picture, everything might be for the best if both parties can joint forces and sue together.
Mummy On The Loose
If this unlucky student weren’t taped to a tree, it would almost appear like a Halloween costume gone wrong. However, this student appears to have been the victim of some terrible bullying, which results in him being tightly bound by an entire roll of duct tape. The security guard can’t seem to keep a straight face as he calls in the incident. Given the reaction, no one would be surprised if his parents called their lawyer and threatened legal action against the school.
The people who make their way to a wildlife safari somewhere in Africa generally do so in order to experience nature in a way that’s up close and personal. As this elephant pets these tourists’ car, the visitors trembled in fear, as they worried whether or not they should try to proceed. The fear in their shocked expressions demonstrates just how unprepared they were for this possibility. Having your car rocked by an elephant is a great reminder to always spring for travel insurance.
Man vs Cheetah
Well, this certainly looks like a situation that could have very quickly turned fatal. It’s unclear from the photo what set this little cheetah off, but at the very least, it looks like there were a number of animal tamers on hand to quickly get this kitty under control. We hope this man only came away from the brawl with only a few scratches and all of his limbs. We’re not sure, but cheetah attacks are probably not covered by most insurance policies.
This dad seems to be in awfully good spirits considering there’s a massive arrow in his shoulder. He was happy when his son decided to take up an active hobby like archery, but he realized just a little too late that he probably should have bought him lessons with a skilled instructor first. Thank goodness for modern medicine, though we’re sure plenty of medieval knights survived far worse injuries by bow and arrow. At the very least, the kid looks quite worried about his dad’s wellbeing.
When considering scary animals, it’s fair that kids may be afraid of big dogs with loud barks, or wild predators like foxes or bears. It’s not entirely certain just how fast this peacock is moving, however, this girl certainly felt the need to run for her life. Despite the bird’s beautiful plume of feathers, showing its tail could have easily been enough to startle the poor child. Hopefully, her parents took the time to show her that peacocks are not so fearsome after all.
Burn Baby, Burn
As fun as sunbathing can be during the summer, the importance of protecting your skin can not be overstated. This woman seems to have let time escape her as she whiled away the hours, baking under the hot sun. Though she likely knew beforehand that her fair complexion didn’t exactly encourage tanning, she lingered under its hot rays anyway, turning her skin a crisp, beet red. We hope that she found some aloe vera at that fancy soap store.
You know what they say, never poke a sleeping hippo. We’re not sure what this man did to evoke such ire in this hippo, but it’s clear the wild animal is hot on his tail. Though hippos may appear to be sleepy water dwellers, their reputation is more akin to that of the iconic children’s game. This hippo is hungry and certainly ready for a fight. We hope this man got to safety shortly after this photo was taken.
There’s a reason it’s important for parents to teach their kids caution around nature, as you never know what you’re going to find. This adventurous soul must have felt particularly pleased with himself as he intrepidly stuck his head into that tree. When his forehead was attacked by a startled porcupine, however, he hopefully realized his folly. People who work with animals know how to put them at ease even when they’re a stranger exploring their natural habitat. This guy, not so much.
From looking at this picture, one would be inclined to assume that this man somehow fell tragically into a large pile of cacti. Of course, how this happened remains a mystery, but the sheer number of needles that are stuck into his body looks pretty painful.
Off With Her Head
When scrambling to catch a bus or train, there’s always the fear of having a body part get stuck in the doors. It’s not exactly pleasant as the mechanized glass grips your limbs, even if it’s lined with rubber. This woman found herself in an even more dramatic situation, as the doors closed around her head. We hope the driver was quickly alerted as it seems like a position that would make respiration difficult. How she got that way, however, is a mystery.
Making Their Mark
Parents who have introduced their children to the joys of coloring know just how closely their spawn need to be watched when it comes to writing implements. Most of the time, children take crayons to the walls, which require more labor to clean than most parents would like to exert. However, most would definitely find it preferable to discovering an expensive Mac computer that’s been doodled on with a permanent marker. They should have done a better job keeping those out of reach.
Cemented In Place
Construction zones are generally well marked in advance of work beginning in order to avoid situations just like this. While this man had been warned time and time again to move his car, the construction company should have followed protocol and had the car towed. Instead, the vindictive truck driver decided to give this car owner a lesson he’d never forget by dumping a load of cement onto the car. We wonder if his insurance policy will cover the mishap.
The unfortunate reality of pale people is that even small amounts of sun exposure can cause an inordinate amount of sunburn. Though many pale people know that they should take extra precaution with regards to sunscreen, sometimes, life gets the better of them, and they end up with their own personal Waldo stripes on their legs. Even worse than having to ope with such a nasty burn, however, is knowing that you have an uneven shorts tan, and should probably stick to pants going forward.
Mishaps involving car mirrors are quite common, given that they project themselves out from the body of the car. What one doesn’t expect is for the car door handle to break off into your hand, therefore ruining your day before it had even begun. As long as your car didn’t break off after your key broke in the door, then you should probably head back inside and send a distress signal to your call dealership. With any luck, they’ll take your car for free.
Stuck In A Rut
The rest of the country may have been celebrating the much needed rain, but this used car lot found themselves in trouble. As their dirt lot quickly turned to mud, they though everything would be fine once the rain stopped. Unfortunately, they didn’t account for a chasm opening up into the earth during the storm that then swallowed an untold number of cars whole. With that amount of water, however, there’s no way they’ll extract those cars without help.
Bike owners in every city can sometimes struggle to find an appropriate place to lock their bikes. Polls are often too risky, given that a thief will happily lift the bike off of the poll, never to be found again by the poor owner. This bike owner definitely doesn’t have to worry about their bike being stolen, but they’re still out of a bike, until the city comes to fix the poll. Even then, there’s still a chance the bike will never make it home.
Take A Seat
High school is a trying time no matter what happens, as ever-changing teenagers are forced to transform in front of their peers. Given the flux of the social order, one small mishap can affect you for years to come. This poor girl is likely more worried about being laughed at for an extended period of time after falling through her chair. Given her age, she probably won’t go running to find a lawyer, especially since embarrassment isn’t the strongest case she could make.
Some mishaps are unavoidable as the laws of physics work their magic while onlookers standby, helpless. When this truck lost control and began running up the hill, it was only a matter of time before gravity made the situation a whole lot worse. One worker may have run out to investigate the situation, only to find that weight of the bricks had broken through the back of the truck and were spilling out over the road. It’s these mishaps that make company insurance a real necessity.
It seems these bees were ready to move to a new home and latched onto this nearby car. What exactly sparked their desire to use this car for transportation is something we may never know. If there were people inside, they may have been afraid to leave, though it remains to be seen if the critters can fly as fast as the car can drive. This car owner might want to see if his car insurance covers cars being involuntary transformation into a beehive.
Having your bike wheel fall off in the middle of a race could definitely qualify as a worst day kind of moment. This flipped cyclist was captured at the perfect moment, as his body is vertically suspended above his bike frame. Though in this still snapshot, it would appear that he is simply balancing in a handstand himself, his bent legs show that this is just a moment frozen in time. If he signed up for a race, however, he’s probably can’t file a personal injury lawsuit.
Struggling to unlock a door is one of the most frustrating experiences one can have. Watching your key snap in half while you’re stranded outside, especially after a long day of work, is the last thing that anyone needs. If this unfortunate scenario should befall you, you better hope that your phone is charged, because you’re going to need enough battery to find an emergency locksmith, and to entertain yourself until they arrive. If not, you should probably get a drink and try again later.
Dude, Where’s My Car?
It looks like this poor woman was the victim of an unexpected sinkhole. At the very least, it’s a good thing she was able to get out of her car quickly enough. However, watching your car slowly be consumed by muddy water is probably not much further down the list of horrifying things that can happen. She better call her car insurance quickly, since this accident is very clearly the fault of the city, and not her own.
New Paint Job
Well, this definitely counts as one terrible, no good, very bad day. While getting paint or worse, glue, all over your car might not be akin to physical injury, or worse, totaling your car, cleaning it up is a significant undertaking. This car needs a team of experts in order to make it usable again. Furthermore, whatever project these people were about to do now has to be put on hold. We’re not sure what happened, but the paint managed to reach the front seats too.
The Walking Dead
One would expect a funeral home to have the proper equipment to secure caskets into a hearse, but when this one stopped short in the middle of the street, the employees were in for a big surprise. Given that the hearse is the beginning of the funeral procession that makes its way from the home to the cemetery, the deceased family was probably watching the entire ordeal. This funeral home should call their attorney immediately, especially if the deceased’s life insurance covers casket mishaps.
Bad Hair Day
This picture encapsulates the fear humans should have of technology. This isn’t even a robot, and she was already an indiscriminate victim. She definitely could have been more careful around an piece of hardware that sucks items into it, but it still isn’t fun to get your hair caught in anything, let alone to have so much of ripped out at once. Her place of employment better have some rock solid attorney’s on call, because this case could be a real doozie.
Til Death Do Us Part
There are a variety of possibilities as to what is going on in this photo. Obviously, a wedding is happening and these two newlyweds are having some well-deserved photos taken. Here are our two theories. 1) The man who is lying motionless on the grass is dead, and nobody has the decency to help him out. 2) He’s dead, and no one has spotted him yet. 3) Some people just can’t handle weddings, get drunk too easily and fall flat on their faces before the reception.
Hurdling Or Limbo?
In hurdling, the aim is to jump over the bars while racing against a number of other competitors. Many have shown monumental performances over the years at the Olympics. However, this is one athlete who not only failed to win his race but had his defining moment of the competition captured on camera. He didn’t just fail to get over the hurdle, but he ended up getting knocked out by it, making it look like he was trying to do the limbo.
They say that age is nothing but a number, and this seems to be true as far as the lady in this photo is concerned. She got on a swing and suddenly was taken back 20 years to those simpler times when she just played with her friends and had zero cares in the world. However, this is just a small piece of this photo’s story. As you can see, a child in the background is oblivious to fact that one of their chains has broken…
Happily Never After
If there was ever a more frustrating photobomb, then we would like to know. Everyone dreams that they can get the moment that their marriage proposal happened on camera. So this couple must’ve been thrilled when they got someone to take a photo of the future husband getting down on one knee at Disneyland. However, as the photographer clicked the “snap” button, a tourist saw that he was in the way of something special. Despite trying to get out the way, an accidental photobomb was captured forever.
A Door To The Door
Normally, one door is enough in any situation. But sometimes, people want to play it safe and have two doors to be extra secure. We doubt this is exactly the case as far as this photo is concerned. It appears that the door has split into two parts. The piece that actually keeps the door locked has remained in place while the part that holds the window and the handle is hanging. We sure hope this driver has insurance.
Might Be Time To Turn Around
Archeologists will do whatever it takes to unearth hidden truths about the world and the people who came before them. They will go down the darkest holes and venture through the wildest of forests, doing whatever it takes to make new discoveries. However, when you are venturing down small, underground tunnel, and you encounter a bear coming from the other way, it’s probably best if you either play dead or turn around and go the other way!
Splash Or Smack?
Based on this photo, we can’t judge whether this amateur diver will make it into the water or crack his skull on the stone surface. It all depends on the pace at which this guy is jumping. If he’s just started the jump, then there’s a chance that he might make the splash. However, if he’s currently falling, then we think he’s toast. Word of advice, you might want to jump from the edge of the pool next time, buddy.
When Prom Night comes around, you just want everything to be perfect. You want to dress well, have fun with your friends, and if you have a date, then even better. So when these girls got together for a pre-prom get-together, they were ready to be the lives of the party. They had no idea though that they would look back on their photos and find one that had been infiltrated by a ghost. On second thought, it was probably one of their sisters.
I’m Not Lovin’ It
If you’re lucky, you will be able to go to a McDonald’s where you can just show up, place your order and collect your Big Mac. However, many of the fast food chains have a number system now, which means that you are given a number and have to wait until yours is read out. So when this person received number 139, they couldn’t believe their luck when the monitor missed them out. Their day was bad enough and all they wanted was a Happy Meal!
We Don’t Fit
You know what they say: “It’s not the size that matters, it’s how you use it.” This couldn’t have been truer as far as this Halfords truck tried driving under a bridge that it was just too tall for. Surely, the driver should have known that they wouldn’t be able to fit. Of course, the motto at the back of this truck is “We Fit,” so maybe they tried to stand by that. In the end, it backfired in a big way.
A Soapy Surpise
There’s nothing worse than items that look like food but aren’t edible. Fine, fake fruit might be a better option for your children to play with, but buying soap that looks like a delicious chocolate dessert is just plain mean. Biting into a big piece of soap is worse than trying to bite into plastic and realizing it’s just that. As the soapy suds fill your mouth, washing it out becomes an over the top punishment for a crime never committed.
