Women Who Made A Mistake For Once

There is this common misconception out there that women are perfect…it’s mostly perpetuated by women, but still. Most of the time it’s pretty true!

The only downside to being practically perfect in every way is that when the ladies do mess up, it’s usually in some really embarrassing ways. But it’s important to be humble, so here are some women who kind of dropped the ball.

That Is A Lot Of Quinoa

It turns out that those cooking instructions on the back of the bag are there for a reason! Who knew?! This young woman left her quinoa in the microwave for a measly extra 30 seconds.

When Life Gives You Potatoes…

When life gives you potatoes, you’ve got to bust open a bottle of wine, get day drunk, and then line up all the potatoes and call your family into the kitchen to come and check it out.

What Are Your Intentions With My Precious?

Mom is meeting the new boyfriend for the first time. Most parents want to put their best foot forward. This mom put forward the other foot. The Gollum in a leopard bathrobe foot.

Nothing Bad Happened, Did It?

Mom had to go to the grocery store and had her daughter with her who was temporarily blind from a visit to the eye doctor. She got distracted and her daughter ended up in a dirt pit.

The Dryer Is The Enemy

This is not usually a mistake that women make, but alas, here we are. She put one of her cute socks in the dryer by accident and shrunk it down to children’s size.

There Are Lots Of Different Kinds Of Smart

Even though her face is a potato, you can see the shame and exhaustion on her face. Technology isn’t always easy, and sometimes you just have to let it win.

Mommy Needs To Have Fun Too

Isn’t it so frustrating when you see a child enjoying the best part of their life and you end up missing it? There is an easy remedy: steal the kid’s bike and ride off into the sunset.

An Attempt Was Truly Made

When your kids are adults, Christmas is fun but different. This family took a Secret Santa approach, which mom was a little bit confused about. You can still feel the love, though.

All It Takes Is A Couple Of Rocks

Of course, the one time she doesn’t check her kid’s pants is the time that he’s got two rocks in there that singlehandedly destroyed her brand new washing machine.

RIP To A Good Manicure

This stunning manicure fell victim to something so many of us love—french fries. She was so busy chomping down on her fries that she didn’t realize she was biting off her own nail.

This Is Why The Spray Stuff Doesn’t Work

That looks like a very painful burn on about 60% of his back. His wife really did think that she did a good job putting on the sunscreen, and yet here we are.

Not The Kind Of Thing You Want To Find In A Drawer

Everyone loves coming home to visit Mom, for the most part, anyway. And then there is this person who was greeted by this terrifying doll named Janice hiding in her sock drawer.

Well, They Are Ripped

He wanted ripped jeans, and his wife said that she could help him with that instead of spending a bunch of money on new worn jeans. As you can see, they didn’t turn out as expected.

It’s A Cute Sweater Otherwise

Mom was so excited to have found a Christmas sweater for her little one that she didn’t take time to notice that Santa is peeing his well-wishes on that beautiful snow.

That Is One Excellent Nap

This is what happens when you’re eating sunflower seeds and think you’re spitting the shells out the open window when really, they’re landing all over your daughter’s face as she naps.

Creepy Little Alien Feet

This dog’s mom was sick of having to clean up muddy little paw prints all over the house, so she did something about it! It’s not a cute look, but it does the job.

Did It Work?

I’m not sure that this is what he meant when he told her to put the computer in rice…she was close, but cooked rice just isn’t going to do it.

This Is Utter Chaos

Why would anyone ever do this? If it were my mom who pulled this stunt, I would sit her down and ask her if she was seriously OK. She’s probably just trying to mess with her kids, though.

It Looks Delicious!

This woman deserved to eat her drunkenly purchased sub in peace, but no. The guy working there just wasn’t going to let that happen. There isn’t anything wrong with her sandwich!

Excuse Me?

There are lots of people in the world, but the worst of them are the ones who think they can do whatever they want on an airplane. Like this woman who thinks everyone wants to see what’s going on with her hair.

Do You Think She Lost Marks For This?

I can’t imagine what the embarrassing email was that had to follow up handing in this paper addressed to “professor what’s his nuts.” I have a feeling he isn’t going to take too kindly to that.

It’s Still A Great Picture

How couldn’t she see that wave coming in just off in the distance? Maybe she thought she could jump in and snap a picture before it got there. Who knows?

She Might As Well Go Home

When you’re a student, you know what it’s like to stay up so late working on the homework you put off until the last minute. That’s why we can’t really be surprised that she grabbed her cutting board instead of her laptop.

You Have To Read Those Dimensions!

Has the internet not taught us to check the dimensions before we order things? How many more women are going to have to end up with tiny, doll-sized versions of what they want?

Blue Is Her Color

When she said that she wanted to dye her hair blue, I can’t imagine that she meant all the little hairs on her face. Hopefully, it washed out after a couple of days.

What A Nice White Hat

When you’re eating something that delicious, you have to snap a picture for Instagram. Just make sure that you’re not dipping your brand new white hat into the broth and kind of spilling it at the same time.

Maybe Check The Weather Next Time?

In her defense, the weather can tell you it’s going to be clear all it wants, but there is no way anyone can promise you that’s going to be true.

She Probably Deserved That Pizza

At least her pizza is sliding out of the box on a piece of paper. That means if she wakes up sooner than later, the pizza might still be saveable.

That’s Actually Great Life Advice

Mom is trying her best to comfort her child and give good life advice. Getting fresh air and eating more fruit is a great way to take better care of yourself.

That Dog Is Not Having It

All she wanted was for her dog to sit peacefully in the back of the car. But no. Dogs always want to get into things that they shouldn’t, the driver’s seat included.

Hey, If It Works…

This woman couldn’t find her painting palette, so she made use of what she had. Turns out a stale tortilla is perfect for mixing your paint on. Who would have thought?

No One Wanted To Get Involved

To be fair, I’m not sure that I would have understood what she was going for either way, so maybe the people in her life just didn’t want to seem like they weren’t smart.

Burn Them All In A Fire

They probably looked really cute before they went into the oven to be baked. That’s always the hardest part about crafts. They look good at one stage, but not at another.

Pesto Is Sneaky That Way

It is surprising the number of people in the world who don’t know that pesto has nuts in it. I’m sure her mom wasn’t trying to take her out. She was just trying to make her a nice dinner.

“No” Was The Right Answer

I couldn’t imagine telling someone that you like their work and don’t like them as a person, so you wanted to hire them but they weren’t allowed to speak to you.

Why Does This Even Exist?

What is the point of inspirational paper towels? Is it to make the person who is doing the housework that they don’t want to do feel better about their situation?

Sounds Like She Needs To Be Grounded

Honestly, $600 in booze is a lot. I get how that much money can be spent quickly, especially when you’re drinking, but I mean, come on. The thirst tweets are too much.

The Fans We All Dream To Have

This is the kind of support that we all want from the people in our lives who support us. So what if she doesn’t know her personally? She still wants what is best for her.

I Think She’s Missing The Point

That mask is literally so dumb. Pretty, yes, but it serves no real purpose other than to make people think that you’re trying to make sure their health is taken care of.

This Is Kind Of Funny, Though

This seems like the kind of accident someone does and then doesn’t really regret the more time goes on because it’s really funny, especially the more you look at it.
