People Who Decided To Give Up On The Mission

Whenever you’re in the midst of doing something difficult, the easiest option is to give up. That’s right… just stopping in your tracks and not worrying about it anymore. It’s easy to quit, but it never leaves a good taste in your mouth. The following people gave up and didn’t look back.

She Asked Her Boyfriend To Bake Croissants For Dinner

Well, let’s just say that this had to be his first time baking croissants. How far did he get before giving up?

He clearly missed an important step, but you live, and you learn in this world. Maybe he’ll do better next time.

Google Translate Didn’t Want To Do It

Google prides itself on what it can deliver to the people, but this Google Translate scenario wasn’t helpful at all.

What if this person was in another country and needed that phrase translated as soon as possible?

Yes, I’ll Take One Long Yellow Thing

Clearly, the person who made this sign never heard the classic Gwen Stefani song. If they had, they wouldn’t have given up on spelling “bananas.”

How hard can it be to spell that correctly? I suppose “long yellow things” is an okay description for kids to understand, though.

Can You Blame Them?

It’s tough to blame a person for doing this. Still, it couldn’t have been that hard to push the unwanted junk out the way.

Did they think that mess would stay there forever? If they didn’t think that, then they for sure gave up on their job.

When A Nutcracker Gives Up

A nutcracker literally has one job, and that’s to crack nuts. The walnut in this photo couldn’t have been that tough.

The cracker simply gave up. Apparently, it was time for it to move on to a new world.

They Almost Had It

Yeah, it looks good folded, but that’s how they trick you. It comes inside the package that way, so that’s all you see.

Once you open it up, you realize the people who made it failed you. They didn’t have to give up when they were so close to finishing it.

The Subtitles Person Dropped The Ball

Someone must’ve not wanted to research what he said during this moment. With all the technological help in the world, they didn’t stop to figure it out?

That’s what you call a lazy give-up. Some people give up because they feel defeated, but not the person who did the subtitles for this episode.

Good Job, News Channel

This news channel had one job when it came to putting this man’s photo on the screen, and they didn’t do it.

I’m sure they usually check for errors like this. If they didn’t have his name, they could have left that tab off the visual.

Giving Up On Protecting The Car

After ten robberies, the owner of this car could care less about someone breaking in again.

Leaving a note like this is pretty smart, but it’s also an indication of giving up. There’s no point in trying to protect it anymore.

Yeah, That Should Hold It…

Sometimes, people try taping things that don’t need taping. This is a prime example of that, but indicates a bigger issue overall.

If they didn’t want to finish the job, they shouldn’t have even started it. How long was that tape supposed to hold?

How Tough Is It To Cut A Lemon?

Filling up a container with water and adding lemon slices seems pretty easy to do. Anyone old enough to operate a knife can do it.

Why would someone put the full lemons inside the water like this? Maybe they didn’t have a knife…

All They Needed Was One More Divider

It’s safe to say that unless it’s a busy day filled with tons of people who need to relieve themselves, no one will use the two urinals on the right simultaneously.

They added one divider, but forgot to install the second. What level of giving up is that?

“Gave Up Shaving Halfway Through”

This man openly admitted that he gave up shaving all his body hair halfway through the process. That’s too bad because he was halfway there!

Surely, he didn’t keep this way for too long, unless he was on lockdown for quarantine or something.

Not What They Had In Mind

I’m sure they didn’t have this in mind when they envisioned it. Whoever set it up gave up and didn’t look back.

It’s clearly a mess that no one can understand unless they want to put their brain through unwanted stress.

Wait A Minute…

You’re telling me someone managed to fill multiple boxes of “strawberries” with blueberries and didn’t notice at all?

That doesn’t seem right. They had to have noticed at some point, but still shipped them like this anyway.

Say It Ain’t So!

Knowing how to eat a Kit-Kat isn’t a secret reserved for the elite. Everyone knows to break them apart before consuming.

Whoever did this had no intention of doing that. They’ve given up on playing by the rules of society.

No More Notes, Please

You can tell this person doesn’t want to participate in taking notes ever again. He would rather have someone kill him, according to his own writing.

Giving up on notetaking is the first step in barely graduating college. He better watch out.

Nice Job, Genius

It’s not like someone asked whoever did this to find a cure for cancer. All they had to do was flip the sign the correct way.

Instead, they walked away knowing it was wrong. That’s a classic case of giving up on the job.

Giving Up The Hunt For Parking

Trying to find a good parking space is one of the toughest things a driver can do on a busy day.

You can’t be mad at this person for making the sign. They’re offering a service while stopping their hunt.

They Almost Had It

I’m sure this student doesn’t mind that her face didn’t get fully blurred out, but what was the point of doing it all?

This is what you call giving up halfway and forgetting that a mirror still reflects.
