We all do things we regret. It's a part of life and something that makes all of us human. Anybody who goes through life without making a single mistake is most definitely not a real person. Maybe a robot? Which, in 2018, is a little scary since that doesn't feel too far off. I digress. The point here is that we all mess up and the only way we can get over it is to share with the internet where it shall live on eternally! Here are 15 people who live with absolutely hilarious regret.
The person who tried to trim their eyebrows with beard shears.
“So I recently got my hair done after letting it get away from me for the past 3 years. I felt amazing and sexy and the compliments from my husband was the cherry on top. Feeling all the excitement and the new found self-esteem, I figured why not get my caterpillar eyebrows up to speed,” Reddit user lucky_lola wrote.
But she wasn’t that lucky…
“I always use my little hair trimmer when shaping my brows, but it seems to have disappeared in the recent move. Then I get the brilliant idea to use my husband’s beard trimmer. I put the smallest attachment on and run it over one eyebrow…. looks perfect. I move onto the next eyebrow and the attachment falls off as I am running it through. No biggie. I put it back on and return to the eyebrow, only to find my poor eyebrow is gone. Just like that. That little second of trimming took it away in one sweep.
“Mortified, I panic. I quickly attempt to draw it back on. The difference is undeniable. I begin to freak even more. What if I trim my existent eyebrow with scissors? Nope. Looks even worse. With my anxiety and mind running rapidly, I give in and just shave the other off.”
The person who left their robot vacuum on long enough for a stinky surprise.
“Ran the robot vacuum cleaner and it cleaned the floors with dog feces for a nice scented house to come home to after work,” Reddit user Erik5858 wrote.
Yikes. That is not something you want to come home to.
The person who will always check email attachments from now on...
This one is honestly my worst nightmare.
“I’m currently a postgrad on the ol’ job hunt, and in mid-December I found a job I really really liked the look of in my field. Also, it didn’t require a million years experience and it was part-time. It even had an application form which I was really excited about because I find cover letters more stressful in terms of tailoring it to the job spec.
“So I download the application form, make a copy to put in the ‘job hunting’ document file, and spend hours perfecting my answer in each box. It took the whole day and the deadline was at midnight so I was feeling the pressure because I really liked the look of the job, and I caught it just in time,” wrote werthersun0riginal.
Sounds like a pretty good story so far, right? Well, just wait ’til you read what happened next…
