40 Hilarious Photos Of People Having The Worst Day Ever

Sometimes, things escalate from bad to worse so rapidly that all you can do is laugh. After all, they can’t get much worse than some of the ridiculous situations in this list. Yes, from cars crashed in all manner of physics-defying locations to some curious culinary disasters, these really take the cake when it comes to having a bad day.

Really, it doesn’t get much more ridiculous than this. How do you get stuck on the roof with not one but two ladders at your disposal? On the bright side, we guess if they were taking a picture, they had their cell phone to hand to call for help.

A sign saying “Wet Cement” is not a challenge, as this Porsche driver discovered back in 2012. Let’s just hope the driver wasn’t hoping for a quick getaway, eh?

This is really messing with our understanding of the laws of physics. If the bus is equal length to the width of the highway, how did it manage to get stuck perfectly perpendicular to it? And, more pressingly, why did it happen in the first place?

Well, we guess you’ll have to reconsider your dinner plans. Or at least the bit involving drinks. But you can at least console yourself with the thought that surely nothing else can go wrong. If you’re the optimistic type, anyway.

Imagine coming downstairs in the morning to find this scene awaiting you in the kitchen. We’re pretty sure we’d call it a day there and then, and head off back to bed. After all, some things are just too much to deal with that early in the day.

Locked out of your van? Quick! Call a locksmi… oh, wait. You are the locksmith.This one is a double whammy, because the guy behind the camera is a professional photographer who can’t seem to take a decent photograph.

Yeah, short of the wind physically lifting up your car and throwing it across town, it doesn’t get much worse than this. And really, the end result is the same: you need a new car. The really frustrating thing is that you can’t even blame anyone for this besides Mother Nature.

There’s really no way this situation could get any worse for this guy. Not only has his friend buried him in the sand, but they’ve also thrown potato chips all around his head. You can just imagine the dawning realization as the seagulls start to flock, and the inevitable occurs…

Is this the most perfectly timed photo ever taken? Quite possibly. After all, the dawning realization on the faces of the guys is absolutely priceless, especially compared to the look of blissful ignorance on the woman’s face. Really, we don’t even need to see the aftermath: this is so much better.

To be honest, we’re almost impressed by this. Indeed, you probably couldn’t replicate the exact angle if you tried. We can’t imagine it’s going to survive the journey back down to the ground, though – and hence, things really couldn’t have gone much worse.

Carl: “I’m going to be late for work because… cement.”
Boss: “Cement?”
Carl: “Cement everywhere. Cement all up in my grill. I… just… cement.”
Boss: “The word has lost meaning. You’re fired, Carl.”
Carl: “…cement.”

You can’t make an omelette without cracking a few eggs, so at least these guys will have some comfort food when they get fired. It won’t be good, though. It’s just going to taste like floor and tears.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and that’s no truer than here. Yes, you can pretty much figure out for yourself what happened. Somehow, we don’t think this kid is going to have many worse days. Nor is the construction worker responsible for fixing this…

Fireman: “Should I…”
Sally: “Yeah, cancel our date. I literally can’t face you right now.”

We’re no chefs, but we bet even Gordon Ramsay would have no idea how this happened. After all, how do you melt away an oven tray but not simultaneously destroy your food? Maybe this oven is well versed in the dark arts. Or maybe it was just a plastic tray…

Well that’s a triple-threat on the bad day vibes, buddy. You’re too heavy for conventional scales, you’re barefoot on broken glass and that fancy weighing contraption looked expensive. Just go back to bed, but maybe avoid comfort food for a while.

Part and parcel of owning a convertible should be forever having one eye on the weather forecast. The slightest hint of rain, and you can bet your bottom dollar we’d be leaving the roof up. Otherwise, you could end up coming back to a scene like this.

Whoops! How are you going to get out of that one? Our advice: use that sword to start slashing at the other troops’ pants. You won’t be alone and you’ll soon earn a quick escort out of there. It might be time to think about changing to boxers, rather than slips, too.

Some days, an umbrella does nothing to protect you from the elements. For instance, the rain may be battering you from all sides, and it’s impossible to keep yourself completely dry. Or, it could be super windy, blowing your umbrella inside out. Or in this case, completely off.

Yes, rather than some kind of pigeon massacre, this is actually just the scene of a recently-exploded feather pillow. Somehow, we doubt this person will bother trying to machine wash it again. That is, if the machine even works properly after this.

We know everyone has to start somewhere when it comes to learning to drive, but this really takes the biscuit. After all, how does something like this even happen? It’s boggling our minds to even contemplate it, but one thing we know for sure is that the driver is having a really lousy day…

You can tell by this little girl’s expression that her dad has been braking too hard once or twice already. Her biggest worry in this situation, however, is that she knows they had Mexican food the night before. Barf.

“Okay Hans, this is your moment. You’ve been training for years for this glorious opportunity. You’re the man. You’re unbeatable. All you have to do is make it over this final hurdle. You can do it! You can… OOMPHOWOWOWOW!”

Somehow, we don’t think that’s a mistake he’ll be making twice. And we can probably say the same for the guy on top, because really, neither of them is making it out of this situation comfortably. Their faces do paint a hilarious picture though.

This poor guy looks like he’s simply accepted that he is paint now. He’s never going to move again until he’s either dried or died. All life is pain. All life is paint.

Golfer: “Why does no one ever believe me?”

“See, this is your problem Dave. You always take things too far. When you said, ‘let’s drive to the beach,’ I knew you actually meant, ‘lets drive into the sea.’ That’s why I said no to skydiving.”

Imagine having your shoe stolen by a train door, of all things. By that point, we’d be inclined to just go home and resign ourselves to defeat at the hands of, well, the universe. After all, it doesn’t get much more ridiculous than this.

This gives a new definition to the term “coffin dodger.” Nobody expects to literally be dodging a coffin while they drive. Luckily, this was in Russia and that casket just has a series of smaller caskets inside it.

Well, that’s one way to give yourself a quick trim. Or, in this guy’s case, a little more than a trim. Somehow, though, we don’t think it was intentional. It might just be the look on his face, or the fact that it happened in a workshop clearly not intended for personal grooming. Either way, he’s having a bad day.

Alas, poor paintbrush – we hardly knew ye. As if painting a room wasn’t enough hassle already, this just tops it off. In fact, we’d be tempted to just leave the brush and use another one. After all, eventually you’ll use enough paint that the lost brush will be all that’s left. Right?

Apparently, Italian pigeons are absolutely done with tourists. Yes, this girl decided it would be great to take a picture in Venice seemingly shooing away the flock of birds. Instead, they simply flocked to her. Clearly, they’d had enough of humans trying to disrupt their gatherings.

As culinary disasters go, this is pretty epic. Yes, this is in fact just caramel that’s been left simmering for a little too long, turning into a miniature volcanic eruption. It may look fascinating, but somehow, we don’t think that pan’s going to survive.

We always knew the machine revolution would come, but we didn’t think it would look like this. In fact, we didn’t really think it would involve a hand mixer at all. But here we are: the first step in the war versus robots has been taken by culinary equipment. The truth is stranger than fiction…

At least she still seems happy, but that’s because it’s not her car. It’s her cheating ex-husbands. It’s his boat, too, and his camera. Incidentally, that went in the water right after she took out the memory card to document this precious moment.

Sudocrem will heal any wound, except the one in your soul as you walk in to see this. Maybe this kid’s parents should cover him in the white stuff and hope that the little pain disappears.

Yes, whoever owned this car undoubtedly had the shock of a lifetime when they returned to it. After all, they’d left it under a leaking pipe, which subsequently froze in the cold weather.

You know what they say: never leave a rubber duck in a hot car. Or is that dogs? Well, either way, it should totally apply to rubber ducks, too. Otherwise, you end up with disasters like this. And that horrified, melted face will no doubt be haunting this driver’s dreams for years to come.
