20 People Who Stared Disappointment in the Face

2 years ago

From being royally let-down with a “pizza” in Italy to craft attempts that didn’t quite hit the mark, these people know what disappointment looks like. However, it’s especially painful if you’ve spent almost $19 on a piece of bread and smashed avocado, or the cake you made for your daughter turns out to be a disaster. We must simply learn from our mistakes, keep our heads held high, and not let these things ruin our day.

At Bright Side, we believe people deserve a second chance, so we’re sharing some instances where people haven’t quite made it to the top yet but will one day.

1. “My brother got this pizza in Rome, Italy...”

2. Someone paid $18.60 for this “smashed avocado on toast.”

3. “I can’t believe this is an actual dish.”

4. “My daughter got her face painted (by an actual adult). She was very offended that I couldn’t tell she was ’Elsa from Frozen.

5. “This painting my grandmother copied”

6. “I painted a pumpkin. Didn’t go as planned!”

15. “My mother ordered a fall wreath from a Facebook ad. Weeks later, a tiny package from China showed up.”
