16 People Making Life Harder Than It Has To Be

Diply 15 May 2018

Depending on who you ask, life is either super hard or super easy. People on the easy side see it as a pretty simple transaction. Insert food, sleep a bunch, and the rest just kind of takes care of itself. Then there are the people who make things way harder for themselves than they need to. This list is a celebration of those people.

1. I'll tell you what, if you bring me food that I paid for at a restaurant in a dog food bowl, you'd better be prepared to have me eat it politely and not mention it.

But mainly that's because I'm scared of confrontation. I'd sure complain about it afterward a bunch.

2. You know, it might just be easier to admit that you all like each other and just be friends.

You don't have to have all this pretense about lettuce and whatnot. Just put yourself out there a little bit, and you might be surprised what comes back your way.

3. When you've done an adequate job, but your boss only has one setting for their enthusiasm.

"Well, teacher, I finished the test and I think you'll find that it's VERY done indeed." I actually sent this to my friend Kevin, and based on his reaction, I think this is actually his homework.

4. Listen, I came to this store to buy some carbs and to spend some money, I don't have time for your philosophy, okay?

Also, is this place just called Noodles? I feel like this is the kind of Valhalla I've only ever dreamed about.

5. Honestly, I say you just let the kid go with it and see what happens.

I'm especially curious about the show-and-tell where the kid brings the hamster in to class and talks all about his...well, you know.

6. You miss 100% of the shots you don't take, and you also regret 100% of the opportunities you take where you could have done something super passive-aggressively lazy but you decided not to.

7. I'm gonna level with you. I've seen this picture a good half dozen times and it gets me every single time.

Apparently, I have some unresolved issues with a guy named Tom that I should probably just deal with.

8. I really don't know what to suggest in this case.

First of all, who just straight-up steals ice cream? Second of all, clearly you need to tell on this wicked girl. I mean, I applaud her for working with what she's got, but dang.

9. That whole dog food bowl thing from earlier was probably a surprise, but this is just self-induced.

The main problem I'm having is that I'd be way too tempted to fill up every square, like this person did. And by my count that's like 22 nuggets. I'm sorry to break people's hearts, but that's just too many nuggets for one sitting.

10. I cannot imagine a world in which this is the right way to go about doing things.

Like, at some point you actually need to push to get that scooter going. I don't think the roller blade is the right way to go about getting your thrust.

11. When the cashier says "Cash or credit?" and you say "Yes" because you didn't hear the question, but now you've committed and you've gotta see this thing through.

The really impressive part is if this works. Then you just slide that tenner back in your pocket and you're off to the races.

12. I can't imagine the person wasn't fully aware and then just left it there to seem all kooky and random.

But hey, I've been wrong before. My apologies to this kooky rando if this was actually an accident.

13. I can't stare at this picture without "Yakety Sax" playing through my head the whole time.

Like he keeps pushing it from every which possible angle, trying to make it work, and ultimately he decides to just hire a truck. Classic comedy, y'know?

14. It's not often I say that failing to play the lottery is a shortcoming, but this one just really had to hurt.

That being said, since when do "lucky numbers" ever have an extra lower number at the end? Am I crazy? Am I not getting enough fortune cookies? The point is, I smell shenanigans.

15. Some people prefer to do their makeup after they take their shower, but not this woman. No sirree, Bob.

That being said, it clearly worked, so I'm tempted to call this a certified lifehack while still kind of making fun of it.

16. There's got to be a story here, right?

Right?! I mean, I guess someone could have independently come up with this and decided that this was the style they wanted, but I just really don't want that to be true. Is that a bit mean? Yes. Do I kind of regret it? Also yes.
