People Who Had to Shrug and Say ‘Well, That Sucks’

Share on Facebook

Usually, if something sucks, you get to work fixing it. For instance, having your sink leak sucks, but if you call a plumber — or even go to Home Depot and buy tools yourself — eventually, it will not suck. The same thing with being hungry — yes that sucks, but once you get to a Chipotle, it will no longer suck.

But sometimes? Sometimes happens that is just so sucky, it inspires no action. All you can do is shrug and say, “Well, that sucks.” It’s the ultimate defeat — you’ve been so beaten down by the thing that sucks that you just start planning your life around this suck, losing any hope of making it better.

Because we love and care about you, we sincerely hope nothing that sucks this bad ever happens to you. But since sometimes these sucky things can be very, very funny, we’ve collected some of the best times the internet was so defeated, they just hung their head, said “well, that sucks,” and went on home.

Ooh, you hate to see that happen to one person, let alone two people, who are just trying to help someone out. See, this is why I never help anyone with anything. Also, I am incredibly selfish.

How awful it would be to be known only for the worst thing you ever did. If that same criteria was applied to me, I’d rescue someone from a car and they’d call me “guy who refused to help his friends move even when they help him move.”

A fun part of your 30s is waking up thinking you’re hungover, and then remembering, nope, this is just how my body feels now.@thetigersez

This was the last time this young man was ever seen. Best case scenario, he’s working down in the Russian mines where all of Putin’s greatest annoyances are forced to work.

This was his one chance to be on TV.

Not only did this young man let himself down, he let down the Tennessee Titans. It is impossible to rule out that the Titans’ post-season performance has been so poor these last few years because they were so hurt by this moment.

Your co-worker was so grossed out with you that they not only printed out a sign to get you to stop, they inspired other co-workers to jump into the fray.

Have you ever met a celebrity without realizing they were a celebrity? You get this vague sense that you know them from somewhere, but you can’t quite place it. I hope that’s what was going on for this kid.

I have lived next to the same guy for three years. Thought his name was Steve. I call him Steve. His name is Steve in my phone. I’ve been to his apartment. We’ve had dinner. His name is Brian. His dog is Steve.@_rachjd

See, this is why it’s so important to choose the right person to zip up your Spider-Man costume. If they get it wrong, you could be stuck inside that costume forever. Then, if the Green Goblin attacks, you’re the one who’s gotta do something about it.

This is what you asked for.

My friend lied on his CV that he mastered the piano at age 15 and now he’s been asked if he can play for the board of directors on Friday. Man has been sitting in the car for the past half-hour googling “the most painless way to break your fingers.”@Shimz_Afc

I bet that “B” is going to feel really embarrassed when she finds out it was her newborn baby drinking her creamer, and that he read the note and said, “so?”

To be fair, I also did this to my Switch when I couldn’t get the last few Power Moons in Super Mario Odyssey.
