When you wake up, no one ever thinks, “I hope I have a bad day today.” But then, much to your surprise, everything can go wrong within seconds. In fact, there are events throughout the day that slowly but steadily turn everything into a real nightmare. A few Reddit users shared these small details that turned their day, or that of some poor stranger, into a really bad one. Thankfully, they were able to capture the whole thing in a picture so that we could all laugh about it afterward. Because after all, what else can you do except laugh at what happened and get on with your life?
