Here at your home of fails, 4AllFails, it’s our job to present to you, for your viewing delectation, the world’s greatest collection of mishaps and cock-ups. We often get quite involved and specific, but we want to zoom out for a second and just deal with general fails for a second. Who’s just useless at life? Who can’t manage the basics? The simple things… Well, there are plenty of people out there so well schooled in the art of the fail, they’re just utterly useless. And it’s those people we’re concerning ourselves with here. Here are fifteen types who just suck at life:
Here’s a great starter – this young girl, Megan White, thought it’d be nice to surprise her mom on Valentine’s Day. And it was. Provided her mom likes vegetables that make your pee smell weird. If she prefers flowers she might be slightly disappointed with this vase full of asparagus. Still, it’s the thought that counts, eh? This young lady might fail at life, but the love’s there. Bless her.
Jeez… Now this is about as big as fails get. The worst thing from our perspective? When we first saw this picture, out initial reaction was, ‘Wow! What a great idea!’ But then we asked our brain to chip in and help out and he filled the rest in for us. It’s a pretty simple equation we all need to remember: ‘water + electricity = death’. Even if there is an amount of ingenious taping and stuffing of things into flip-flops.
Here we see two identical twins (two is the best amount of twins, we find…). Dressed the same, they apparently have the same IQ too. A low one. Two brains and yet neither of them have identified where the gas goes into their car. Unless they’ve got one of these new-fangled models where the gas gets pumped in to the handle and all over the back seat. Two heads are better than one? Not in this fail they’re not.
Electricity seems to confuse quite a few people. Some, as we’ve already seen, can’t seem to remember than electricity can, well, electrocute you. Others, as we see here, seem to think that it’s self generating somehow. It needs to originate from a source, chaps, it can’t just appear out of nowhere. We wonder how long this failer spent staring at this set-up in despair… ‘WHY ISN’T IT WORKING?!’
Girls out on a night of fun and frolics in Sin City itself, Las Vegas. Dressed up and hitting the karaoke, they’re having a good time singing their lungs out. Although the people in the room would only hear the girl on the left. Only, there are two ends to a microphone. And the girl in the middle? She’s picked the wrong end. We didn’t know that was even possible, really. Unbelievable, yet oddly impressive FAIL.
Hot day. Bright sun. There are plenty of things you can do to protect your eyes against the intense light. Maybe you could get some shades. Perhaps you could buy a hat. Maybe you could get some shades and buy a hat and then just forget all about them and use your hand to shield your eyes from the sun’s bright rays. You could that. You’d be failing hugely at life and ending up on one of our lists, but it’s up to you.
Hey, look, ‘why do you have a framed picture of your ceiling fan’ is a fair question. For someone who’s just banged their head to ask. But for anyone with a mostly fully functional cognitive function? It’s questionable. Still, on the upside, at least – as we can see by the comment times here on Facebook, it took less than a minute for Jesse to realize his error. So a life fail, but one that’s been figured out.
It’s nice, isn’t it? When your other half packs up a lunch for you for the next day at work. It saves you a little time in the morning. But the quality of it? Well, it’s all going to depend, isn’t it? What is your partner like in the kitchen? Are they the sort of person who might prepare you a salted beef pastrami and gherkin sandwich with a Dijon mustard mayonnaise? Or the sort of person who’s likely to sling a piece of unwrapped Kraft cheese in between two slices of bread???
Instagram now. We’ve had Twitter and Facebook, now it’s Instagram’s time to embarrass itself with stupidity. How this lady affords a BMW on her level of intelligence we’re not entirely sure… And it IS a BMW. Despite what she says. Unless it is a Mercedes Benz, she’s just had a BMW steering wheel fitted. Why would someone do that? Well, quite frankly – they wouldn’t.
We’ve seen what dipsticks do when the sun comes out and they’re packing shades and a baseball cap. Now it’s time to bear witness to the true stupidity of what can happen when a life failer operates at the opposite end of the weather spectrum. It’s raining here and we see a man with an umbrella. But he’s not unfurled it for total dryness. Oh no. He’s holding it over his head. As you do (if you’re mental).
She’s #wondering?! We’re #wondering. about her! We’re also #scratchingourheads at what’s happening here. We’re glad to see that the person who leaked this picture obscured this girl’s name, only imagine the embarrassment…. She’s asked the question, ‘Did they come up with 911 as the police number after 9/11?’ The answer’s pretty simple. Altogether now… ‘#NO!’
We feel a little sorry for this guy, he was just trying to be nice, wasn’t he? Feeding a few little Bambis like this? Bless him. But you’ve got to watch yourself with animals, they sometimes come mob-handed and hunt in groups. What started as a nice little feeding sessions has quickly descended into a full scale deer-feeding riot zone. His heart was in the right place, but it’s going down as life fail, we’re afraid.
To meet Mick Jagger from The Rolling Stones would be millions of people’s wildest dream. But not Ellie Goulding. She doesn’t even know who he is. She’s got the right band, but by tagging Keith Richards in, she’s demonstrated a pretty woeful lack of musical knowledge. Something she reinforces in her songs or albums. What? She’s terrible. She is. We don’t care who knows it, either. Mick Jagger has more talent in his little finger. Keith Richards too, come to think about it.
Sometimes, when you’re at work, you have to listen very carefully to your boss. Most of the time, they want you to do exactly what they tell you. Sometimes you’re expected to use your initiative, but not always. But do be careful not to do what this numbnuts has done and taken their instructions so literally. We’re not sure that the ‘on both’ bit really nearly to be piped on in frosting now, did it?
Judging by the quality of this photographer’s camera equipment, this snapper takes his hobby very seriously. Maybe he even does it for a living. So he’d no doubt love a shot of the beast the other side of his rock. Too bad he can’t see it as it photobombs the snap of him fiddling with his camera. He’s going to be furious when he realizes he missed this shot but the person he was with got it!
