15 Accidents That Turned People Into One Huge Smile

Spilling coffee on a new shirt or missing the bus — unlucky accidents attract all of our attention when they occur. With that, there are probably just as many (if not more) random good things happening around us, like getting an extra burrito or the cutest neighbor dog photobombing our pictures. We just need to let them make us smile more.

We at Bright Side know how important it is to appreciate the small things, just like our lucky heroes did today.
