We all go through life worried about what other people might be thinking about us. It's nothing to feel ashamed of, human beings are social creatures and we're wired to be concerned about what everyone else might be thinking about us. That being said, there's no question that it feels amazing to stop getting so worked up about what others are thinking and to just be ourselves. Does that sound cliche to you? We thought so too, until we saw these absolutely hysterical photos of people who just said "forget it" and decided that they were going to live life the way they wanted to. Once you see those photos, you're going to be saying the exact same thing about your own life as well.
1. Bathroom Life Lessons
Some people like to get philosophical while doing their business, and this can translate to some supposedly thoughtful graffiti. While we understand the sentiment of the first person, we are more inclined to agree with the responder.
If you're going to go to the effort of writing on a bathroom wall, at least make it original. Whoever responded in the red obviously has a better grasp on the whole bathroom philosophy schtick.
2. Don't Need Help?
Working retail is tough. You have to paste a smile on your face and provide excellent customer service, even when the customers aren't exactly friendly.
This employee decided that they'd had enough and that anyone who pressed the button wasn't getting the help they were expecting. We can't say we blame whoever stuck this label here, but we sure hope nobody caught them when they decided to try this power move.
3. Grounded For Life
Getting grounded is a part of growing up for kids. You do something your parents deem 'bad' and you have to pay the price. For some kids, like this daughter, that price is power washing the deck.
Instead of getting the job done, and trying to get the grounding over as fast as possible, she decided to have it extended. Her bald dad was less than enthused when he saw this message. The verdict is in: grounding extended.
4. A Little Bit Of Mandatory Reading
The one thing you can count on in grade school is a reading list. Depending on your age, you can expect books like Winnie the Pooh or, if you're older, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens.
It seems like this little-known title has been forgotten. But, it seems like it should be mandatory reading for basically every person on Earth. We could all benefit from learning how to be a bit nicer, right?
5. Get Your Math Right
Everyone has a different cause that they like to support. For some people it's veganism, and for others, it is family planning. This car owner decided to broadcast to the world how important family planning is.
However, this might not have been the best avenue to flaunt this opinion. Some things are better left to billboards, or you know, professionals like doctors.
6. Time To Say Bye-Bye
For some people, handing in that resignation letter for a job they hate, is the highlight of their life. That feeling of freedom is pretty empowering.
It appears that their colleagues and boss knew exactly how they felt about the organization and the team in general. This cake accurately sums up exactly how the team feels about their departure. Sometimes it's time to just say goodbye and go.
7. New Son Wanted
Kids don't get to choose their parents and parents don't get to choose what their kids are interested in. This parent decided to search for the kid they had always wanted.
If you know someone who enjoys fighting with ninja swords and eating funyons then let them know. There's a job opening immediately for someone who isn't a giant dork. Dorks need not apply.
8. Stuck In The Middle
House painting is one of those jobs that doesn't take a ton of skill, but it does require some spatial awareness. Basically, if you need to paint an entire roof, you don't paint yourself into a corner.
This painter is clearly contemplating all of his life choices and trying to figure out how he is going to finish the job without leaving his footprints all over the freshly painted roof.
9. The First Rule Of Fight Club
What's the first rule of Fight Club? If you've seen the iconic film with Brad Pitt and Ed Norton, then you know it's that you don't tell anyone about Fight Club.
It appears that there is a new sheriff in town and a new rule for Fight Club. Is there a real-life remake happening? If there is, we hope the reality stars are as compelling as the actors.
10. Life Imitating Art
Graffiti is widely considered to be a form of street art now. Banksy, one of the most secretive graffiti artists in the world continues to pop up and leave pieces that get people talking.
The artist behind this piece of graffiti, which is literally a dialogue on cleaning graffiti looks like it could be one of his. The more times somebody tries to wash it off, the more graffiti will be added. This is an exercise in futility.
11. The Fire Starters
It takes a lot of effort to make food catch on fire in the kitchen, yet three people managed to do that in a month. Firefighters have bigger fires to deal with, and they have a message for their community.
All they want people to do is, "Just stop it." That seems like a pretty simple message for people to follow. Also, why not just keep a fire extinguisher close by?
12. Always Wash Your Hands
We live in a world, where really only one hygienic rule needs to be followed to keep people safe and healthy. Whoever stuck this sign on the wall clearly thought, that it was the only rule worth following.
Just wash your hands, whether it is after using the restroom, handling money, or touching a door handle. That's not too much to ask right?
13. Studying In Peace
Cramming for exams can be pretty stressful. This student decided he needed to deter people from approaching him and knew just how to do that.
The message on his shirt might be slightly questionable, but it will definitely make anyone think twice before walking up to him and asking for the time. Hopefully, the cramming pays off, because his hair makes it look like he hasn't showered in a while.
14. Time To Move Out
Relationships take a lot of work, but when only one person is willing to put in the work or does something unforgivable then they are over. Sometimes a relationship ending can even come as a surprise.
This girlfriend thought she had managed to get away with having a guy on the side, but sometimes social media gives you away. Her boyfriend was not exactly accepting of her cheating, and her move-out day was a major surprise.
15. Vending Machine Woes
Every month there is an advance in technology, like space hotels or optical computers. However, vending machines continue to plague the people who use them.
Somehow, the snacks in vending machines always get stuck. The classic trick is to buy another snack, to try and push the original snack into the vending drawer. When then fails, sometimes a good ole' shake of the machine is what it takes.
16. The Grand Chipotle Exit
Chipotle is possibly one of the most delicious Mexican chains in North America. That's why it is so tragic that this man's taco bowl went flying.
This image looks like it could be a painting from the Renaissance, and it would be titled, The Tragedy of the Chipotle Taco Bowl. Hopefully, he managed to go back for another one.
17. Christmas Tips
Christmas is one of the most festive times of the year. For those that celebrate, you get to watch your pile of presents slowly grow under the tree in preparation for the big day.
A sneaky staff member at this restaurant gave out a very interesting piece of advice on how to deal with naughty children. It really puts the whole, if you're naughty or nice thing to the test.
18. The Case Of The Thieving Dentist
Dentists make a lot of money, but sometimes they will moonlight between different practices. One dentist decided to save some dollars by pilfering some of the dental supplies from their main gig.
After a bit of sleuthing, a dental assistant got them red-handed. Just remember, someone is always watching, and stealing is never the answer.
19. No More Unauthorized Parking
There is a multitude of reasons why parking in undesignated parking spots is a bad idea. The first one is that your vehicle will likely get towed.
The second is that whoever owns the property you are parking on will be very angry. This owner decided to take punishment into their own hands, which isn't exactly legal. Think before you park.
20. In A Land, Far, Far, Away
For anyone who drives, bad parkers can be the bane of your existence. Some parkers park on an angle and take up two spots, or they don't pull in far enough which can lead to fender benders.
This person got tired of poor parkers in their neighborhood and decided to take things into their own hands. You see a card like this, and you just keep on driving.
21. Leaving In A Hurry
Most jobs require two weeks of notice if you want to quit. That's so management has enough time to find someone to fill your position.
This employee decided enough's enough and decided to peace out without giving any notice. In memory of their lost colleague, his former workmates created a shrine in his honor.
22. A Heavy Workload
Working is one of those things everyone has to do if they want to have enough money to survive. That is, unless your family has oodles of cash lying around, and provides a nice trust fund.
Whoever worked in this office, did not have a trust fund and instead got to bear the weight of these binders and the workload that went along with it. No wonder they decided to leave.
23. Gender Neutral Bathrooms
Some office spaces have gender-segregated bathrooms and some have gender-neutral ones that anyone can use. One woman found herself in the unfortunate position of having to share a bathroom with 20 men.
Men's bathrooms can be pretty disgusting places, which this woman found out the hard way. Whoever keeps missing the urinal, clearly needs to reassess their personal situation.
24. Man For Sale
We're all used to seeing yard sale signs, but a man sale sign is definitely a first. Whoever had to put up with the man for sale, clearly wasn't satisfied with their original purchase.
As the saying goes, "One man's trash is another man's treasure," so whoever ends up buying him might be in for a treat. Or not, we would really like to see the man in question.
25. Hot Dog Eating Contest
Hot dogs are one of those foods you associate with backyard barbecues, warm weather, and food eating contests. This teen decided to prove that he was a champion, but with rather teary results.
Sometimes it is better to admit defeat than continue stuffing yourself to the point of tears.
Having a baby is a big deal. You have to go from caring about yourself and your partner, to exclusively caring about your new baby. It can be a very stressful time.
For this parent, he realized the only way to get through parenthood was with whiskey and diapers. As soon as that baby goes to bed, it's party time.
27. The Eyelash Debacle
Fake eyelashes can make eyes pop. For this woman, she wanted to look like a Kardashian on her boat ride, and that meant gluing on some thick fake eyelashes.
In theory, this was a great idea, in practice, it meant her eyelashes adhered to her upper eye which left her with this permanently startled expression for the whole ride.
28. A Lightbulb Moment
There are some things you order from Amazon and some things you don't. Lightbulbs are one of those items that need to be handled with care, especially when delivered.
The first mistake here was ordering the bulbs, the second mistake was when the delivery person decided to leave the box in front of the garage. Those lightbulbs didn't stand a chance.
29. Bathroom Etiquette
There are certain pieces of bathroom etiquette that most people know to follow. The first is aiming into the urinal and not around it. The second is learning how to blow your nose.
The wall is not Kleenex, so don't smear your boogers all over it. That's just common decency towards whoever needs to clean it at the end of the day.
30. Roomba In The House
Each year there are new little gadgets designed to make our lives easier. The Roomba has to be one of the greatest household inventions on the market.
These little robot vacuum cleaners are programmed to avoid running into walls and furniture, but toy trains are another story. This Roomba went on a rampage, and these train tracks will never be the same.
31. The Misty Mountains
One of the highlights of any hiking trip is being able to stare out at the land around you. The viewpoints can make you feel like you're on top of the world.
For this gentleman, he got to see a pretty disappointing sight when he reached the summit of a mountain. It was just gray mist for as far as the eye can see.
32. Time For A Bowl Of Ice Cream
We're not totally sure what happened here, but it looks like this little boy decided he was ready for some delicious strawberry ice cream when things went awry.
This little guy wasn't tall enough to reach the freezer shelf he needed, and all of the food in the freezer and fridge came tumbling down. There's a reason this ice cream was placed up high... It's only for special occasions.
33. Out Of Order
Working in an office means getting along with all of your colleagues and making sure office equipment doesn't disrupt the flow of productivity.
Whenever something breaks in an office, certain employees like to put on their fixer hats and try and sort it out for themselves. Management finally put their foot down and decided to announce that skilled fixers will be doing the fixing from now on.
34. Estimated Wait Time
Waiting in line, whether it is at the grocery store or at the DMV sucks. You know it will be anywhere from 15 minutes to hours depending on the line.
This man decided he was going to enjoy his time at the DMV, and that means enjoying a delicious pizza from his favorite pizzaria. If you ever wondered if Dominoes delivers to the DMV, you now have your answer.
35. Multilingual Vending Machines
Universities always have vending machines conveniently placed by classrooms. Students always need a quick snack before getting back to studying.
It seems like the students at this university don't know how to read a simple sign, so the staff decided to add every language they could possibly think of. In case you were wondering, the vending machines are out of order.
36. A Unique Marketing Scheme
Marriage is wonderful, but it is also hard. Spouses need to take some time apart once in a while and pursue their own interests. This bar can look after your husband for you.
It is conveniently both a husband daycare and a place where husbands can go to let loose. All that's needed is a bit of pocket change, and your husband will be busy for hours.
37. No Free Childcare
Some patrons seem to think that parking attendants also work as free childcare at restaurants. This attendant decided enough is enough, and was ready to let patrons know they would not be looking after their little monsters.
If kids are left with this person, they will learn some special words and be sent home full of energy which no parent wants to deal with.
38. Shredding Rules
People don't like to follow the rules, especially when it comes to shredding. It's pretty satisfying to hear the shredding sounds, and watch pieces of paper turn into pieces.
In an effort to keep the shredder from breaking, someone in HR decided to be funny and explain that only one piece of paper must be shredded at a time.
39. Socks And Sandals
There are some fashion choices that are considered to be a faux pas, and socks and sandals are one of those. They just never look classy no matter how hard you try.
This traveler has clearly given up and has decided to be comfortable rather than fashionable like some of the other flyers.
40. DIY Air Conditioning
Getting broken air conditioning in a car fixed is pricey, but that doesn't mean you should try and do it yourself. Adding some PVC pipes just seems dangerous.
As soon as a rush of air hits that pipe, it is going to go flying into the driver's face. Shell out for a mechanic, and get the job done right.
