18 People Whose Luck Decided to Take a Vacation

The characters of our article are everyday people who simply had a bad day. They’ve had money destroyed by dogs, witnessed upsetting waterfalls, and experienced cooking fails — and that’s only a small part of the troubling adventures they’ve managed to get into. But instead of getting angry, they took everything with a pinch of humor.

Bright Side is sincerely charmed by the people who not only take their small failures in stride but are also willing to laugh at them.
