People Who Are Having A Really Bad Day

Looking Back

by Edgar A. Guest

I might have been rich if I'd wanted the gold
instead of the friendships I've made.
I might have had fame if I'd sought for renown
in the hours when I purposely played.
Now I'm standing to-day on the far edge of life,
and I'm just looking backward to see
What I've done with the years and the days that were mine,
and all that has happened to me.

I haven't built much of a fortune to leave
to those who shall carry my name,
And nothing I've done shall entitle me now
to a place on the tablets of fame.
But I've loved the great sky and its spaces of blue;
I've lived with the birds and the trees;
I've turned from the splendor of silver and gold
to share in such pleasures as these.

I've given my time to the children who came;
together we've romped and we've played,
And I wouldn't exchange the glad hours spent
with them for the money that I might have made.
I chose to be known and be loved by the few,
and was deaf to the plaudits of men;
And I'd make the same choice should the chance
come to me to live my life over again.

I've lived with my friends and I've shared in their joys,
known sorrow with all of its tears;
I have harvested much from my acres of life,
though some say I've squandered my years.
For much that is fine has been mine to enjoy,
and I think I have lived to my best,
And I have no regret, as I'm nearing the end,
for the gold that I might have possessed.

Think you’re having a bad day? Had a rough start to your week? Well, that’s exactly why we’re here – to provide you with some comfort. How so?  With the fact that there are people out there that are having a much, much worse day than you, no matter how bad your day might be right now. Really, just when you thought it couldn’t possibly get any worse – it just did. Here’s the proof through some seriously epic and unfortunate pictures. Brace yourselves.


Check Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself



Major yikes. This girl is clearly not exactly having the best day of her life, to say the least. That really can’t be pleasant in any way, shape, or form. We’re not sure how one even ends up in such a position, but there’s probably not the most heartwarming backstory behind it. And just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, it did – since she was caught on camera and this picture was shared across the internet.



Wedding Weeping



Many girls grow up dreaming of their magical wedding day, believing that it will be the best day of their lives, where everything is completely perfect and is a dream come true. Well, sometimes that comes true in the best case scenario, and sometimes, unfortunately, it also ends like this. This bride clearly had the exact opposite of a dream come true today – with her biggest nightmare taking place.


Life Shattering Experience



While people might think that they’ve experienced some pretty life-shattering things, they have yet to experience one that’s as literal as this one. We also sure hope that no one goes through something as terrible as this. As if a coffin wasn’t already heartbreaking enough – think about what happens when it shatters through your car window and falls out before it gets to where it needs to be. Your own bad day somehow seems a lot brighter right now – doesn’t it?



Man Down


Man down! Man down! Someone call the police ASAP. Oh wait – the man down is actually the police. Well his friends can help him, right? Well, you would assume so, but it seems as police aren’t always the perfect people we believe them to be. They also like to snap some pictures of the action to share on social media (and also embarrass their co-workers while their at it too).


Awesome Adventures



Many girls like to act as though they are adventurous and love the outdoors. Taking a trip through nature is always a great chance to get some top-notch Instagram worthy shots and show the world what a trooper you are. Well, all that’s great and everything – until you fall out of our vehicle and hurt yourself. Somehow, that picture isn’t so important after all, now is it?



Fire Burning On The Dance Floor



When we hear the catchy hit song ”fire burning on the dance floor” we don’t think much of it – we just like to dance to the beat and picture perhaps that the dance floor and everyone on it is getting super into it. Well, these less than sweet young boys decided that they should really have some fire burning on the dance floor, but rather than burning the floor – they would burn their friends head. It’s been a great day for this chap.


Droppings of Doom



Next time you let your friend burry you in the sand, you might want to think twice. All it takes is a few seconds of being unable to move, and then boom – your’e stuck in a situation such as this one where birds are pooping on you and there’s nothing you can do about it. What went from being a great day spent at the beach turned very quickly into a seriously unfortunate experience.



A Ghost Made Him Do It



While this teenage boy has claimed that ”a ghost made him do it” we’re all very aware that ghosts don’t exist, and that there was no else around at the scene. It’s also highly unlikely that there was earlier on before he got stuck in the swing. It’s alright buddy, you can tell the truth, we all have that inner child deep down no matter how old we may be. It’s just not exactly ideal when a medical team has to come to rescue you. Oh, and when the news crew comes too.


Left The Laxatives



Next time, you shouldn’t probably leave your laxatives lying around the house, especially when they are chocolate flavored, and especially when you have a hungry dog hanging out too with a seriously guilty look on his adorable face. We can only imagine what went on afterward, and the unfortunate day that his parents had to go through.



Naughty Nap Time



This is what they call naughty nap time. This innocent father probably wishes that he never took a nap this afternoon and that he had the power to never ever sleep again until his children grow up and learn how to behave. We sure hope he doesn’t have to go to work today because that would make this bad day a whole lot worse. These little monsters, however, are having a great day.


Patriotic Pants



While we’re all for being patriotic and representing your country, we do highly recommend wearing appropriate clothing while depicting your pride. This includes pants without any holes or rips, and one’s that don’t show your underwear.  Surely he didn’t plan on this happening – which is exactly why he’s having a much, much worse day than the rest of us over here.



Head First



So in swimming lessons, they always taught us to dive headfirst. In many other fields, we’ve always been told to go head first. But this woman? Clearly, she didn’t get the memo that this goes towards getting on the bus too. Make sure your head is on before you get your body on the bus – because there’s a good chance the doors with close on you. Yikes.


Front Row Seats



Two front row seats to the premiere of that movie you’ve been dying to see! Woah. Amazing! You saved up for these tickets with your hard-earned money and waited for this moment for months. What could be better than that, right? Well, few things could be better, but when it comes down it – we actually couldn’t think of anything worse than this. Major plot twist going on right now, and it has nothing to do with the movie itself.



Started On The Wrong Foot



So people wake up in the morning on the wrong foot all the time or get started on the wrong foot in many situations. Such things are not uncommon – however, they are not usually so literal and are merely a figure of speech for things not going as we would have liked. Well, this didn’t exactly go as she would have liked either, but she actually got the wrong stuck in the door. The other foot stuck in the door would also have been the wrong foot though.


Sweet Signs



Yikes. Well, this is one way to come back and really feel welcomed. It’s also really great and not uncomfortable at all when all of your neighbors and everyone else driving by know exactly what you’re up to and what your personal family situation is like. Not. Well, should have checked yourself before you wrecked yourself, buddy. The rest of your day can really only go down from here.



Stuck & Sunk



Well, not only has this woman sunk down into the cement, but she’s also stuck in it, and won’t be getting anywhere soon, regardless of how important that meeting she has this morning may be.  Perhaps the cement wasn’t yet dry, or perhaps she really pushed that engine hard to let out her built up anger. Either way, this isn’t exactly a day to remember for her.


Not Amusing Park



While amusement parks are generally intended to be amusing, this is one is everything but that. It’s really just a nightmare that’s come to life, and these people will surely never be coming back, will never be sleeping well at night, and will never forget this experience. But starting with today – they are probably having a much worse day than you are right now. Aren’t you glad you decided to stay home today? Somehow that FOMO isn’t quite as strong right now.



A Few Degrees Too Many



While it’s important to put your laundry on a high heat to ensure that your dirty clothing will be properly cleaned, it’s also important to pay attention to the number on the machine, and make sure that you have set it to burn all of your clothing, the laundry machine itself, and potentially also the entire laundromat too.  Not exactly a fun time.


Dressed To Impress


Dressed to impress or dressed just to cover his body? We’re not sure, but it looks like probably the latter based on his body language. Looks like he probably had a pretty rough day and went through a lot to get that dress onto himself and make it onto this train.  As much as the curiosity is killing us, we’re not sure how much we actually really want to know what happened to his clothing.



Catastrophic Cake



Well, this is what we can call a catastrophic cake.  They don’t sell these in most commercial stores, and they are only available for those very special people who make huge mistakes and are very clumsy. They also don’t cost any extra. Don’t worry though, you’re not missing out – since this poor lady will have a huge mess to clean up and also won’t have having any cake to eat.


Taking The Plunge



While sometimes in life it’s good to take the plunge and go for things, sometimes we really are just left without a choice and have to take the plunge whether we like it or not. As if being a soldier wasn’t already challenging enough, this guy has got another challenge thrown at him that really looks everything but fun. Next time, he’ll surely think twice before coming to the bathroom.



Head In The Game



Our society is constantly encouraging us to get our head in the game – to be focused on the goal and get ourselves into the work mindset. What they don’t encourage us to do is put our heads in the garbage can – there’s no productive goal there and there’s no work there. Perhaps some recycled cans but c’mon buddy, you could have found a different kind of garbage to go through that doesn’t require putting your head in it.


It’s That Time Of The Month


So either it’s that time of the month for this poor woman, or she just sat on some wet paint on a red bench and didn’t pay attention to the sign. Either way, regardless of how this got here – she’s left with a huge mark on her white dress, and it’s more than noticeable. We’re sure that once she and everyone else around her realizes – she won’t exactly be having the best day of her life, even if she gets sent home from work.



Passing On The Pizza



Clearly, this woman had a really long and hard day at work. All she wanted after all those hours she spent in the office was to come home and eat some nice fresh pizza. So as tired as she was, she made it to the pizza shop to pick it up so that she could enjoy it tonight without having to wait for the delivery man. Well, none of that happened – and when she wakes up, her day will only have gotten more rough.


To Be Or Not To Be


In this specific case, when it comes to be or not to be – we would much rather not be. Yes, pun intended. But besides the fact that we would obviously rather not have a massive swarm of bees all over our face and helmet (especially while riding),  at this point, we also would probably rather not literally be, like alive in such a state. And if he does want to be alive, we’re not sure how much longer he’s got left.



Dude, Where’s My Car?



Dude, where’s my car? This isn’t where I parked it. Well, even if this isn’t where this guy intended to park his car, this is where it ended up, whether he likes it or not. It doesn’t look like a fun experience, not getting there, not being there and not trying to get out. We feel your pain man. Tomorrow will be brighter. Hopefully.


Unexpected Soup



Well, this person making themselves breakfast probably wasn’t expecting to have some soup with their meal too. But it’s always nice to get an extra side dish without having to exert too much effort right? Sure – just as long as your soup isn’t soap filled with dangerous chemicals. Oh and that bread probably should be thrown out too.



Run For Your Life



While many people say that it’s important to run and stay in shape in order to be healthy and live longer – sometimes running for your life can become a whole lot more literal, just like this hilarious yet unfortunate case. This guy isn’t running to stay healthy, but rather to stay alive as this wild animal chases him. It’s been a great morning already.


A Sign From Above



While there’s a sign right below her feet that says ”Wet Paint”, clearly she didn’t look down and see it, because otherwise she probably wouldn’t have sat down on this bench. Unless of course she wanted to add some color to her already very red outfit? Who knows. All we say is that perhaps it’s a sign from above to start looking in all directions.



Cracked A Few Too Many



While we all love to crack some eggs on a weekend morning – generally it’s preferred that we crack it in the pan so that we can cook them and enjoy them with some delicious toppings. But fair enough – we all drop an egg or two here and there. It hurts, but we get over it and take another one from the fridge. But when you drop an entire carton? Well, there’s no fixing that. You’re not only left with a huge mess to clean up, but also with no eggs to eat.
