24 People Who Came Through With Unexpected Upgrades

Diply 22 Jun 2017

It's easy to imagine why a lot of people don't like surprises. We're best at dealing with bad news when we can prepare for it, so a bad surprise can make us swear them off forever.

But it's important to remember that there are good surprises, too, and if our best friends are like these people, they know how to pull them off.

1. Sometimes, the most game-changing ideas seem like we should've thought of them years ago.

But that doesn't mean this bold new inventor can't totally rake it in if she somehow gets a patent on this.

I can already hear the "Yaas, queen!"s from here.

2. If the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, I think she'll be juuust fine.

At least, I hope so. Because it would kinda suck for your mom to have better college experiences than you do when it's supposed to be your turn.

Still, I don't think I could ever feel right about knocking her hustle.

GIPHY

Like, she just got there, and she's already got a flock of admirers? Wish I knew how to work that fast.

3. I can't speak to how this haircut makes women feel, but it's definitely working for me.

This kid is definitely not gonna have any problems making friends. He might even be able to talk his way into a "haircut bonus" on each test if the teacher's cool enough.

4. Well, you can't say this little change in decor hasn't made life more interesting.

It's not her fault that your guests can't accept that Dixie's finally getting the recognition she deserves. Especially when it comes to that top-shelf graduation photo.

5. Ah, it's good to see that someone finally brought SpongeBob's dream to life.

Gordon Ramsay's great and all, but we all need to recognize our generation's greatest culinary innovator.

They just underrate him because he lives in a pineapple under the sea.

6. When the technology isn't there yet, it's up to us to fill in the blanks.

Finally, we've found a way for selfies and regular photos to live in harmony and work toward a common goal.

What a time to be alive.

7. If I knew this is what you got for hanging in there, I might not have deleted Snapchat.

If anything is worth the massive battery drain, it's cake.

And as if this whole thing wasn't already extra enough? Bam! Sprinkle ghost.

Load Comments

Yeah, I really need an explanation for why my friends and I can't share a sprinkle ghost.

GIPHY

I guess I'd have to explain what that's supposed to be first, but after that, they're in the hot seat.

Load Comments

8. Hmmm. The idea is admirable, but I think I need to see somebody actually use this first.

Instagram | @kontheabstract

Because if there are any design flaws that make the whole thing sink or something, I'm not gonna be the one who goes down with that ship.

9. I guess you don't really need an upgrade when they already thought of everything before they made the original.

Instagram | @thebestoftumblrofficial

I suppose it doesn't take long for pet owners to figure out the tragic life cycle of one of these things.

Load Comments

10. Yeah, who's really the fake one here if you can't say it to Fido's face? 

Instagram | @kalesalad

Honestly, this dude should have expected that someone would do this when he disrespected a dog on the internet.

I'm kinda surprised there aren't five of these accounts already.

11. With a little imagination, any chair can be a high chair.

Instagram | @will_ent

At least that tank top can go out knowing that it was sacrificed for a noble cause.

I mean, it was either this or get ripped to shreds when the guy gets bored and decides to imitate the Hulk.

Load Comments

So, yeah, it seems to me that he made the right choice.

GIPHY

And the kid doesn't even look that bothered by his situation, which is always a plus. Well done, sir.

Load Comments

12. I think it's obvious that the cap was only holding his hair back from its true potential.

Instagram | @will_ent

Hey, just the fact that he was able to get it to stay like that for the whole ceremony is impressive in and of itself.

Load Comments

13. Well, now he can be as fancy as his wildest dreams while he's actually having them.

Instagram | @will_ent

At least as far as I can tell.

For all I know, he could be dreaming about tobogganing down a mountain made of cookies right now.

14. Finally, a way to get out of paying those ridiculous concession stand prices.

Instagram | @will_ent

And since they don't even sell watermelon, your hustle gets even more respect.

Plus, you have evidence that you pulled this off, unlike that guy who once told me he snuck a bucket of KFC into Chicken Little.

15. All it takes is a little trash talk, and the whole block can be spotless.

Instagram | @wot_u_sayin_tho

Just go up to a random group and say, "I bet your friend could dunk on you." Then just sit back, and watch the fireworks.

Load Comments

I guess it's a little short for this kind of Matrix stuff, but folks could still show off their skills.

GIPHY

As long as there's a hoop, someone will find a way to do something crazy with it.

16. I guess this is the advantage of keeping one of these in your garage and being too scared to drive it.

Instagram | @kalesalad

When a worthy heir finally comes along, the ancient arts can be safely passed down and survive another generation.

17. Well, yeah, he's got an important job to do, and he'll have a hard time doing it if chemicals get in his eyes.

Instagram | @will_ent

Plus, it doesn't hurt that the goggles and vest kinda make him look like a dog from the future.

Load Comments

18. It's totally unfair that the clubs wouldn't let her in with her punk 'do and her "dink" shirt on, but that's just life, I guess. 

Instagram | @will_ent

But the saddest part of all is having to hide her hands behind her back because one of them looks like popcorn.

Load Comments

So we've got to give this kid credit for shedding light on the real issues.

GIPHY

Don't worry, those mean clubs can't get away with it for much longer. Not after your explosive exposé!

Load Comments

19. Honestly, do they expect people not to do this? 'Cause why else would they wanna work at a toy store?

Instagram | @memelif3

Yeah, the smiling faces of children who got exactly what they wanted are great and all, but we gotta have some fun too, right?

Load Comments

20. These are the kind of brave new experiments the world really needs!

Instagram | @meme.w0rld

And the best part is that we should be fine as long as nobody goes to the zoo and tries to make one of the gorillas into an evil genius.

Load Comments

21. Sometimes, the unexpected upgrade you were looking for was there all along.

Instagram | @meme.w0rld

All it takes is a little inspiration to seize the opportunity and make your cameraman look vaguely amused about it.

22. And if sheep can figure out how to recognize these upgrades, we have no excuse.

Instagram | @textpostsfromthevoid

I guess the noise these things make isn't so bad when the sun's beating down on you, huh?

Load Comments

23. Haha, I love how they even included the little trees!

Instagram | @kontheabstract

Awww, there's a couple of shopping carts on the side of it too!

Of course, to get the whole Costco experience, you'd need to get, like, 10 of these cakes together, but I understand that's a pretty tall order.

Load Comments

24. Well, I guess there's a silver lining to even the biggest bummers we have to deal with.

Instagram | @tank.sinatra

Yeah, things may be a little lonely for a while, but that motorcycle looks totally rad on the wall. Plus, you've still got a cat.

Load Comments

I mean, you know what they say: "It's OK to get hit by a Koopa Troopa as long as you can pick yourself up and grab a mushroom."

GIPHY

OK, you got me, nobody actually says this, but I really believe they should.
