Even if you think your life is calm — and in some ways even boring — it doesn’t mean that something unexpected or surprising can’t happen to you. The people in this compilation never expected that when buying strawberries from the store they’d find a snake in the packaging or that they’d see fuchsia water upon turning on the water tap in the kitchen!

At Bright Side, we love surprises, but after seeing these 20 photos, we think we’d rather not be flabbergasted in this way.
