15 Situations That Made Us Sigh and Ask, “But Why?”

2 years ago

There is no escape from feeling ashamed when life makes us witness absurd situations. Sometimes people around us perform unexplainable acts that our minds simply can’t comprehend. Other times, it’s just us looking back at our younger self and feeling embarrassed by our sense of fashion. Either way, life would become so much easier if we accepted that things don’t always have to make sense. We can even find them amusing if we look at situations in that light.

At Bright Side, we love to see everything from a funny and uplifting perspective. This is why we want to share some situations that might seem surreal but that also made us smile.

1. ’’How I showed up to college to make a statement’’

2. ’’My partner borrowed my car for a few days and gave it back like this.’’

3. ’’This man proceeded to dig 50+ holes at our local park to indulge his metal detecting hobby.’’

4. ’’The way my stepbrother wears headphones’’

5. Who said the gym can’t be fun?

6. ’’She was screaming for me to keep putting more in her shirt.’’

7. ’’4 beds for 3 cats, and they do this.’’

8. ’’One of my professors thought the screen was a whiteboard.’’

9. ’’Are all the translations really necessary, Heinz?’’

10. ’’Last week I put a piece of tape on my bin lid to fix a crack. My neighbor thought we were labeling our bins with our unit numbers.’’

11. ’’My math lecturer wearing an infinite tie version of himself’’

12. ’’A printing shop in my hometown’’

13. ’’Should I tell my mom she’s supposed to take the iPad out of the box?’’

14. Very ripped jeans

15. ’’I’m a 42-year-old male. I grew up with female cousins — look what they used to do to me.’’

Do you tend to get easily annoyed by absurd situations that you can’t control? What is your best coping mechanism?
