These People Are the Epitome of Unlucky

Share on Facebook

Some people in the world have all the luck. They’re lucky in big ways, like winning the lottery, and in small ways, like finding a really good deal at the mall. It seems that no matter where they go and no matter what they do, Lady Luck smiles upon them and their endeavors and brings them absolute best outcome.

The people in the following pictures are the complete opposite.

For whatever reason, luck was not on the side of the people in these situations. However, because someone was there to capture their misfortune, we get to be the lucky ones who can laugh at their mishaps and debacles. I hope that even if these people were probably disappointed in the moment, they can look back on the hilarious situations and laugh now. After all, good luck will only get you so far. Being able to laugh at yourself is the real key to happiness.

Best seat in the house.

Why did they even put a seat there?
They had to have known no one would benefit from sitting there, right?

Forgot the parking brake.

Everyone forgets to engage the parking brake every once in a while.
Most of us don’t live directly behind a lot full of brand new cars, though.

Better get a straw.

This is how you know that you should have stayed home this morning.
It’s a very clear sign. Turn around and go back.

What are the odds?

This must be the only time this has ever happened in the history of the planet’s existence.
Pretty amazing someone got it on video!

Give me a sign.

Alanis Morisette should have gone with the lyrics, “It’s like a hurricaaaaaaane on your wedding day.”
Much more ironic. Don’t you think?

Time to celebrate!

Everyone who wanted to drink that champagne is pretty unlucky.
But the guy holding the bottle? I’d say he’s lucky to have escaped with all of his fingers.

So close.

There were only four ways to hold the flag and he managed to mess up five times.
Honestly, I’m impressed.


Did they at least bring you a free dessert? If so, I’d say it was worth it.

Thanks, technology.

Don’t worry! One of the professors in attendance let the presenter use their laptop and everything went fine. And they passed! All’s well that ends well, but I’m sure they were sweating in that hallway!

The chosen one.

This is all a matter of perspective. If you love intense rides, you might be the lucky one in this situation!

Thanks a lot.

Hitting your car is pretty bad, but everyone makes mistakes. Leaving a note like this is unforgivable, though.

This one hurts.

Do you know what you get when your numbers are only a single digit off? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Except for some tears, probably.

The long con.

This aunt is my new hero and inspiration in life. I can’t wait to do the same thing to my own nieces and nephews.

Bad timing.

And of course, this happened in the middle of winter. It wouldn’t have been quite as funny otherwise.

Quite the price hike.

Never mind! I guess I’m staying here for the holidays. And possibly forever.

Didn’t see that one coming.

Not a great time to take the Jeep for a ride! At least you get to go inside and snuggle now, though.

Looking for something?

I always have a hard time reaching the stuff in the very back of the cupboard shelves. I guess this is one way to solve that problem.

Look out below!

Am I a bad person if this made me literally cackle with glee at my desk? If so, I don’t want to be a good person.


On the bright side, you at least have replacement scissors! You just have no way of getting to them. Godspeed, my friend.

Am I fired?

Let us all take a moment to be grateful for the fact that when we make mistakes at work, it doesn’t result in millions of dollars being transferred incorrectly.  

And you thought that lanyard was a good idea.

To be fair, you know exactly where your keys are. Unfortunately, that’s pretty much the only good news.

What have you done?

Whoever decided that microwaving salmon was a good idea kind of deserves a mess like this one. But it’s really not fair to anyone else within 100 feet of the situation.

How to ruin your pants in 30 seconds.

I have definitely done the “mindlessly scratching my leg with a pen” thing. Thankfully, it hasn’t happened like this. Yet.

“I’m a penis.”

First of all, this guy waited for two months to respond. Secondly, I can’t imagine anyone is looking for a penis on a dating app. Goodness knows there are plenty of those already.

Didn’t quite think that one through.

Although, I have to say that I think is really more the fault of the shirt designer. Everyone who designs shirts should consider the effect jackets will have on the design. There. I said it.

Poor Gary.

Gary. I have no idea who you are, and it is probably not your birthday today. But happy birthday, Gary. I hope it’s a good one.

The footprints!

Spilling your coffee grounds is definitely a bummer situation. But having coffee grounds SPILLED OVER YOU is another level of unlucky.

Fun game!

Let’s be real, though. If someone named Darth Anus approached you, you would absolutely be intimidated, wouldn’t you?

I’ll take that.

This poor guy was just trying to enjoy a bite of steak! At least the bird was lucky.

Do they not realize how fences work?
