You might be having a bad day. You might have woken up late, or sat in gum on the bus, or forgotten your phone, or any number of small annoyances. But whenever things seem bad, just remember—at least you’re not these people. It could be so, so much worse.
1. At least you’re not the person who’s the reason for this sign.

2. And at least your boyfriend didn’t say THE most embarrassing thing to the worst possible person, right in front of you.
My bf met my family for the first time & we we're playing catch phrase & his word was boner. Instead of skipping it like a normal person he said "something that Bridget gives me" right infront of my father

3. At least you didn’t have that one little white lie on your resume come back to bite you on the…hands.
Man has been sitting in the car for the past half hour googling "the most painless way to break your fingers".

4. At least your dog didn’t pick a particularly expensive chew toy.
5. Hey, at least you didn’t get dared to leave a party.

6. And you didn’t have people applaud when you got dumped.
I broke up with my girlfriend at restaurant. She started crying. Everyone thought I proposed her so they started clapping.

7. At least you’re not this person who just dropped about $200 worth of movie snacks.
8. This isn’t your attempt at latte art.

9. Look at it this way, at least when you dropped your phone, it wasn’t while running from the cops.
10. And you didn’t have a mouthful of something totally unexpected.
Every year our aunt in Maine sends us little handmade chocolate lobsters. This year they are soap. Guess how I found out? 🦞 🧼 👄 pic.twitter.com/GOri5LmTEM

11. At least you didn’t create the most awkward moment of the night.
i seriously need a job where i don’t have to interact with people. I just asked a table if they were celebrating anything and when they said their dad’s bday i brought them a bday table decoration and THEN they decide to tell me he’s not coming because he’s dead…….

12. And at least you didn’t suddenly turn your French toast into Chinese food.
13. You weren’t responsible for getting your fake ID confiscated in what has to be the mistake of the century.
Pretty sure I just received the best fake ID of my bartending career; a girl handed me my missing license from 2 years ago

14. Hey, you’re not this squirrel, right?
15. And you didn’t waste 10 buckaroos on a guy who didn’t even have the decency to match with you on Tinder. Sheesh.
I was on tinder and accidentally swiped left on a guy I had a HUGE crush on and I obviously wanted to match him, so I literally BOUGHT tinder premium for $9.99 JUST to go back and swipe right on him
….we didn’t match

16. You weren’t the unfortunate star of a moment of silence.
u know when ur playing cards against humanity & u think ur card is unbelievably funny & the person reads it out loud & not a single person laughs ya that shit hurts

17. And finally, at least you’re not this guy who did technically get what he wanted.
