Sometimes things go wrong and it’s not really anybody’s fault… or at least nobody in particular. Other times, though, there’s clearly someone to blame.
There is, however, nothing worse than realizing that someone is you! When that happens, it can seem like the feeling of embarrassment will never subside.
The people in these 24 photos have all found themselves in that exact situation, but they have nobody but to themselves to blame. Hopefully, though, they’ll get past it soon!
1. You’d think when you’re holding milkshakes that would be the time to be extra vigilant? We’ve all been there, though. Who among us hasn’t accidentally walked into a clear glass door after failing to realize that it was a solid object?
2. Apparently she dropped her phone down there and tried go retrieve it. She should have seen this coming. Not only is she now going to need a new cell phone, but she’s probably going to need new shoes and pants, too.
3. “Mmm… how appetizing!” Even if this was a joke (and one would certainly hope that such a thing would be a joke, albeit a bad one), it really shouldn’t have gotten to the point where somebody actually printed it.

4. These, friends, are the faces of regret… after all, who would ever think it would be a good idea to bathe with the cat? Everybody should already know that they generally have a reputation for not enjoying any time spent near the water, right?
5. There’s definitely such a thing as getting too into the game! Usually, you realize you’ve reached this moment before you’re broken the flatscreen television, but, hey, sometimes you’re not so lucky.

6. How could you possibly deceive yourself into thinking this would turn out well? Sure, we all know that, for the most part, every baby in the world is adorable in their own way. Yet, that doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll look good on tattoos!
7. “I messed up guys. I messed up real bad.” Let’s face it: hammocks are never nearly as comfortable or relaxing as you want them to be. That’s certainly true for us humans, but it must be especially true for other animals!
8. “You mean it’s not supposed to work like this?” Hey, can you really blame this dog for not understanding the very concept of chairs? They’re not designed for pooches after all, so what are our furry friends supposed to know?
9. Some poor soul learned the hard way that the “M” in MRI stands for “magnetic.” Worse yet, these machines cost absurd amounts of another “M” word: money. Can you even imagine the nightmare of fixing something like this?

10. How did nobody catch this? You’d think several people have to sign off on it before something like this actually gets made! Can you imagine somebody actually making the decision to purchase this for a child?
11. Those aren’t too expensive or time-intensive to make, right? One of the things that’s so priceless about this photo, too, is the fact that this was taken just moments before that cake (and, presumably, the wedding) completely fell apart.
12. Talk about door-to-door service! Just when you started to think that FedEx wasn’t as reliable as you’d like it to be, now they’ve decided to be more “direct” than ever. Sure, it ruins your door, but who cares when it’s that fast?
13. What did Mom say about eating snacks in your room? Of course, she didn’t say not to fall through the floor and into the ceiling of the next room, but does that sort of thing really need to be said?
14. Okay, so this is easy to do if you’re not paying attention… but still, come on! This is why New Jersey has the right idea when it comes to pumping gas. In order to avoid mistakes like this, you have to leave it to professionals.
15. “Somebody, please help me immediately. I’ve made a huge mistake.” You sure did, you silly kitty. Cats are certainly known for making their way into all sorts of different containers, but this is completely ridiculous!
16. You can tell the regret is already slowly sinking in. For one thing, the spacing is such that it looks like Justin Bieber is all one word. Unfortunately, tattoos have a tendency not to wash off…
17. This is what happens when you get greedy! This cat may have learned his lesson, though, because this is a punishment of practically biblical proportions! Hopefully, his owner was able to safely get that thing off… eventually.

18. Sometimes when you’re hanging with your bros, things just get out of hand, and before you know it your sick dance moves have killed a car. We’ve all been there, right? Hopefully this person had “dancing insurance.”
19. This is that moment when you realize it’s going to be twice as hard as you expected to be a mother. The fact that this Timehop photo was found a year later, though, hopefully indicates that things worked out!

20. The shortest distance isn’t always the safest distance! You may think that you’re saving time, but when you take into consideration all the time that you’ll have to spend recovering, you realize that it’s not worth it!

21. “It’s not too long between stops, right? Right?” As unfortunate as this situation is for this woman, she’s actually quite lucky that she didn’t get decapitated. Hopefully she managed to escape eventually!

22. That’s got to be one awkward phone call! “Hey Frank, yeah, it’s me, Jeffrey. I… um… I don’t know how to say this. But I kind of lost the cars. Like… all of them. Yeah, I don’t think we’re going to be able to get them back.”
23. Welp… guess somebody’s staying home until spring. That really does look like quite the sticky situation. How the heck was this driver supposed to get out of it during the dead of winter? Hopefully the car wasn’t stuck for long!
24. “Wow… what excellent form! A perfect ten!” What other explanation could there be for something like this other than the idea that somebody was literally trying to “nosedive” their boat? It begs the question, though: where the heck could they have fallen from?
These are just too good! Sure they messed up, but at least we get to enjoy it!
