21 People Whose Day Was Supposed to Be Normal but Took an Unexpected Turn

We’ve all been in situations that left us feeling defeated no matter how small and insignificant they were. But when we run into troubles and experience an unpleasant plot twist, it’s all too easy to fall into a trap of self-pity and lose perspective. That’s why it feels so reassuring to know that you’re not alone and there are people out there who might be having an equally challenging day.

Bright Side collected 21 photos of folks who were brave enough to share their misfortune with everyone on the Internet.

1. ’’’Forget about the arctic cold and surf the lake,’ they said. ’It’ll be fun,’ they said.’’

2. ’’Sorry class, my dog ate everyone’s homework.’’

3. ’’So this just happened.’’

4. ’’In-laws invited us over for dinner; it was a trap.’’

5. ’’’Bake bread,’ they said. ’An overnight rise will taste so good,’ they said. ’Put it in the fridge,’ they said.’’

12. ’’Literally bought this lamp last night (thankfully it was only $30), and this happened in the morning.’’

14. ’’Oops. That morning commute just got delayed.’’

15. ’’I picked the ladder up, forgetting the paint was on top.’’
