18 Situations Proving That Life Is Way More Ironic Than We Think
Sometimes the universe has a merciless sense of humor, and the heroes of this article had a chance to experience it firsthand. Some of them had to spend 7 days on the road just to eventually turn around. And others left a better parking space for their neighbors, only to get their own car broken. Then there are some people who purchased prepaid car washes and never got a clean car. These are just a few examples of the irony the universe dishes out to us.
But studies show that Murphy’s law can be broken if you act with optimism. So at Bright Side, we prepared this article so that you can see with your own eyes that absurd situations happen to all of us.
