13 Things That We Find Uncommon in Real Life but Totally Normal On-Screen

While many of us enjoy the escape that movies and TV shows provide us from our regular lives, many things we see on-screen don’t really make sense. Whether it’s waking up with perfect makeup and hair or having a neat and tidy house with 4 children, there are many hilarious instances we see that make us say, “That would never happen in real life.”

Bright Side found 13 examples of things that we regularly see on-screen but are quite rare to see in real life.

1. Adult friends hanging out regularly.

2. Everybody has baguettes when shopping.


3. When your water breaks IRL, it basically just means you’re currently in labor. When your water breaks on TV, it means the baby is actively being born.
