Walking Down the Aisle
Traditionally, a father walks his daughter down the aisle before “handing her over” to her future husband. At this point, the father is “relieved” of all duties, and the wife is now the husband’s responsibility. Many aren’t aware of what this tradition entails.
A bride is a human, not an object to give away. The bride-to-be isn’t being traded for 10 cows. As an alternative, couples have requested people to bless the union. If you would rather walk alone, or with your mother, do it!
Bad Luck to See the Dress
Whoever came up with “it’s bad luck to see the bride in her wedding dress before the actual wedding day” was going through something. It makes no sense to forbid the couple from seeing each other in the clothes they will be wearing for one of the most significant events of their lives.
For two people who have spent so much time together leading up to the big day, it doesn’t really make sense. What if the bride wants her husband’s opinion on her dress?
Weddings are where couples are celebrated, and single people are called out. Why make a whole section of people feel awkward for not having a significant other? On top of that, why ruin a perfect bouquet by tossing it arbitrarily in the air?
With the belief that whoever catches the flowers is the next one destined to walk down the aisle, a lot rides on this bouquet toss. Having a group of women fight over flowers is such a silly tradition.
Useless Wedding Favors
Weddings are costly on their own, and then people throw in unnecessary expenses like wedding favors. Like most party favors, wedding favors are basically a collection of items that end up in the trash or at Goodwill sooner or later.
Let’s just be honest now – nobody is that invested in someone else’s wedding’s souvenirs. Instead of wasting money putting your monogram and wedding date on a random item, rather use it toward the honeymoon.
The Chosen Bunch
A wedding party consists of bridesmaids and groomsmen who are expected to accompany the couple every step of the way. While it may sound like a privilege to be included in someone’s big day like that, it’s actually just a lot of unnecessary pressure.
People in matching outfits have to stand next to the bride and groom and do what they say, as if they were their assistants. Your best friends should enjoy your wedding rather than worry if the flower girl got there on time!
Cake smashing is wrong for numerous reasons. Firstly, the cake itself took many hours to make and costs way more than it should. The same can be said for the bride’s dress and makeup, so why risk that all?
We get that you want to have fun and entertain your friends but that’s what the dancing is for. Smearing each other’s faces with frosting just seems very high school.
No Wearing White
Having guests show up to your wedding isn’t harming anyone, so don’t fret about what they choose to wear. People’s eyes will be fixated on the bride because it’s her special day. Why restrict people from wearing white?
White is a classic choice when it comes to fancy attire. Also, if women want to wear pantsuits to a wedding, they should be welcome to do so. Everyone just needs to loosen up when it comes to traditions!
The First Dance
Most people get shy to dance in front of a large audience and shouldn’t be forced to do so just because it’s their wedding day. Remove the stress of going to dance lessons and rather enjoy some date nights.
The time and money spent on dance training could be spent on other activities that the couple actually like, or even toward the wedding event itself. It’s time to normalize enjoying weddings, not stressing out.
What Does White Signify?
Despite its beauty, white can stain easily. Many people’s wardrobes don’t have one piece of crisp white attire due to this very reason. Also, once the wedding ceremony has been conducted, the couple will be sitting down to eat.
Moreover, traditionally, the color white signified the “purity” or abstinence of a woman before marriage. Unless you can handle it, steer clear of white. By wearing a white wedding dress, you’re more likely to stain it or just never wear it again.
Rules for Gifts
For couples asking for presents instead of cash for their wedding, don’t shy away from asking for what you really need or want. If you have an existing set of silverware and plates, you don’t need an extra set of fine china simply because that’s a traditional wedding gift.
Cuteness gets old; convenience stays relevant. Ask for stuff you will use on a daily basis. Don’t deny yourself anything because of odd superstitions. A set of knives would be an excellent addition to the new kitchen!
Flashmob Dance Party
We get it. A wedding is an exciting celebration. However, it doesn’t mean we have to start performing in acts that we would never otherwise. Such is the case for the cringe-worthy flashmob dancing that takes place at the reception dinner.
You might not be able to sense the awkward tension in the air when you are the bride/groom or dancing with the party, but as a guest watching, you’ll feel it.
Man of Honor and Best Woman
Many of these ancient wedding traditions carried a lot of value when they were first practiced. It’s a mystery why people still choose to carry them on. A lot of the older norms aren’t relevant anymore. Perhaps tweaking one or two can make them usable again.
That being said, many couples blindly follow these traditions without knowing the true meaning behind them. One such is a bride having a maid of honor while the groom has a best man. Why can’t we change that up?
Unfortunately, modern weddings are less about the celebration of two individuals coming together and more about a showcase of wealth. But surely the focus should be on their love and marital vows?
That way, the happy couple can keep their money in a savings account and use it for a better purpose later. Buying a property, investing in stocks or saving up to have children sounds a lot smarter than spending your pennies all for one day.
Limiting your wedding to two standard color palettes is a rubbish belief. If you are a fan of colors, express yourself! It is your wedding, after all. Let your creative juices flow and display all the color tones that match your personality.
We recommend selecting complementary colors that do not clash but rather uplift the entire mood of the event. Sometimes, the more, the merrier. As an example, look how beautiful this bride’s colorful wedding dress looks!
Matching Bridesmaid Dress
The tradition of bridesmaid dresses comes from 19th century England. Back then, the bridesmaids used to dress identical to the bride. By the advent of the 20th century, bridesmaid dresses contrasted the brides.
Bridesmaids are their own people, thus not every dress will look good on everyone, and not everyone is comfortable with every outfit. Choosing a standard color is a better idea than making everyone dress the same.
An Emotional Preview
If you thought the groom and bride’s first look was weird, the father-daughter one would not impress you either. Generally, fathers watch their daughters grow up for their whole life, with notable exceptions applied.
We don’t see the difference between that and seeing her in her wedding dress. Sure, it can be emotional seeing your little daughter all grown up and getting married, but you aren’t waving away your fatherly rights? In 2022, most couples will live together before marriage, so this tradition is a moot to start with.
The Bridezilla Approach
The day of a woman’s wedding will very likely be stressful, overwhelming, and nerve-wracking. Naturally, her friends and family try to make it easier for her by tending to all her needs.
Some brides, however, are disgustingly entitled and act as if everyone should be at their beck and call because “it’s their special day.” Some people take this a little far and turn into demanding divas who think they can talk down to those around them.
Mandatory Gift Sending
People opt out of weddings for several reasons. Perhaps they have work that day; they couldn’t find a date and don’t want to attend alone, or they cannot afford the whole excursion. Nowadays, people are somewhat open about the gifts they want and more often than not, it comes with expensive taste.
For guests that do not attend, the mandatory clause of still sending a gift is outrageous. Thanks to this backward belief, everyone who receives a wedding invite automatically starts stressing.
Stand-in for Rehearsals
Being a bride is definitely a special role but it shouldn’t be confused with an acting role. Actors often require stand-ins for numerous reasons such as camera blocking or lighting setups but the same cannot be said for a bride.
So, this silly superstition that bans brides from walking down the aisle before the ceremony is a total money waster. Sure, you can be a perfectionist who wants things done right but it still doesn’t explain this.
Clink to Kiss
The glass-clinking tradition doesn’t always win the popular vote. For those of you scratching your heads, this is when guests bang their silverware against their glasses to cheer on the newly-married couple to kiss. How awkward? Also, this is more dangerous than it seems.
People are known to be quite inebriated at wedding events, so getting them to break glass is basically asking for an accident to happen. That is why many brides have come up with cute alternatives. For example, getting guests to place coins in a kissing jar.
Believe it or not, it is not obligatory to get married at a religious place like a church, synagogue or mosque. Marriages have been limited to entirely religious ceremonies, but they are much more than that.
Recognized by the government, married couples also bear tax benefits. Remember that religion is only one aspect of a wedding. There is no reason for you to get married at a holy site unless you are somewhat religious. Otherwise, go for a destination wedding or a location that holds a deep meaning to you!
It is believed that the father of the bride is supposed to shoulder all the monetary burdens of the wedding. Maybe that’s how it was back in the olden days but it’s now 2022 and this no longer makes sense. Why should such a massive responsibility be put on one set of parents?
Obviously, finances are different for everyone and therefore, each wedding should be handled accordingly. If the bride and groom can afford to buy the bulk of the wedding, that’s totally okay too. Couples need to realize that they can base their wedding arrangements on what suits them.
Releasing doves, butterflies or any other precious animal after a wedding ceremony is just unnecessary and bordering on cruel. If couples really want to be extra and enjoy the notion of liberating something into the sky, why not do so with balloons or lanterns?
In fact, you can really get creative with modernizing this tradition. For example, you could hand out eco-friendly bubble mixtures or wildflower seed bombs. We hope one of these alternatives appeal to you, because it’s time to get with the 21st-century picture.
The Bridal Bouquet
The practice of carrying bouquets is rooted in antiquity. Ancient Romans, Egyptians, and Greeks used to carry fragrant spices and herbs to ward off evil eyes during weddings. Flowers also have a beautiful meaning in this sense because they symbolize a new chapter of happiness, fertility, and fidelity.
Having said that, not every bride likes flowers. In fact, many could be allergic. Traditions are meant to change over the years and adapt to the newer standards of living. Maybe the bride wants to carry feathers or a lantern. To cut a long story short, pick what you want on your special day.
Live flowers can set you back hundreds and thousands of dollars, based on the size of your ceremony. And yes, having real flowers is beautiful to look out but they also wither and die just days later.
This is where fake flowers come in handy. They can be repurposed and reused. You can use them to decorate your home later or donate them to someone else. Not only are they cheaper, but they’re also more practical and convenient.
It’s not necessary for the wedding rings to match as you are two individuals who probably have your own style preferences. Couples can have different tastes in metals, stones, and so on.
Having the same wedding band also doesn’t help resemble that the couple has a deep connection. Obviously, if the soon-to-be husband and wife want to don matching bling, then that’s okay too.
Here Comes the Bride
“Bridal Chorus” by Wagner is that one quintessential wedding song you are bound to hear at every ceremony. As many couples of the past chose to make their relationship official to this song, new-age couples often still feel the pressure to comply.
Just so you know, this song doesn’t have to be played at your wedding. Instead, go for a song that holds sentimental value for both of you. That way, you know it will be special. You can even play an upbeat, fun song to beat the nerves!
This goes along the lines of a father walking his daughter down the aisle. The bride-to-be is a grown woman who can make her own decisions, right? She might want her father to be happy with her decision, but that doesn’t mean she requires her permission for it.
A father doesn’t own his daughter in the same way that a husband doesn’t own his wife. Ringing up the bride’s father for a friendly chat in order to make sure he blesses the union is a different and respectable gesture.
Wearing the Veil
While veils are elegant and sophisticated, they aren’t for everyone. Brides have walked down the aisle with tiaras, flower crowns, and nothing but a small pin in their hair. Veils hold some value in orthodox wedding culture, but there is no reason to hold onto those now.
Originally, brides were dolled up with a veil to showcase an “untouched and modest maiden.” Again, problematic… Also, if the veil is long, you will need an extra person to help you so that you don’t accidentally trip.
When it comes to getting dressed for the special day, brides don’t have to follow the crowd. If she wants ‘less is more,’ toned-down makeup, great! If she wants stage makeup that’s loud and glitzy, more power to you. Why? Because the key here is that she’s glamorizing herself the way she desires.
The same goes for jewelry. Some women prefer to wear dangly earrings with an accompanying necklace and bracelet, while others just want one of the three. Obviously, the hairstyle should be planned with that same mindset. But, of course, if she’s wearing a dress with a high neckline, we do suggest she keeps some of her hair out of her face.
Wedding bells should be retired to a form of expression only. This tradition is now pointless. You don’t have to keep a lookout for a venue with bells simply so you can hear them jingle. Traditional Christianity claims that bells ward off evil spirits.
There are people who genuinely enjoy the sounds made by bells and therefore want them to make a feature during their ceremony. For the rest of the audience, it’s a miss. You don’t want to give those prone to migraine a bad start to the event. Perhaps try decorative bells to be on the safer side?
Engagement rings don’t have to feature a diamond. Yes, they are the standard for some people, but not all. Not everyone is fond of this sparkly stone or can afford one, and that’s completely fine. Do you have a knack for bright red rubies? Or maybe ocean blue sapphires? Go for them!
You don’t need age-old traditions telling you what to do with your money and pretty fingers. The fact that some people think the size of the diamond determines the love between the couple is just disturbing. Money doesn’t buy emotions. Well, certainly not long-lasting ones.
Recycling the Wedding Dress
Unlike jewelry, dresses are something that’s generally not passed down to further generations. Your grandmother may not want you to wear her incredibly beautiful vintage wedding dress on your big day simply because she believes it to be bad luck.
Orthodox traditions suggest wearing a “pre-worn” outfit on your day brings a lifetime of misery and poverty. But, in actuality, buying a secondhand wedding dress saves a lot of money and is environmentally friendly. Besides, many historical figures have tied the knot in their ancestor’s clothes and stayed in happy, long marriages.
In ancient wedding history, throwing rice at the newly-weds is said to bring them fertility and prosperity. But again, if we break it down into realistic terms, it just creates an annoying mess that will need to be cleaned up by someone. If not, it will get eaten by birds which is actually dangerous.
Eating rice makes them expand in the stomach and can even lead to fatalities. That certainly doesn’t symbolize prosperity, so perhaps it’s best to put this whole custom to bed. If guests really feel the need to throw something, they can toss some extra cash towards the couple’s wedding gift.
Who doesn’t like presents? However, you have to consider the fact that most of the time, when two adults tie the knot, they have what they need. In the 21st-century, couples start living together way before marriage, so chances are they already own common household items like crockery and silverware.
You could just give cash as your wedding gift. It offers the newlyweds an opportunity to cover some of the absorbent wedding costs, including the honeymoon. Knowing that your gift really helped a couple get their dream first vacation as a married partner sounds like a great idea.
Conventional wedding traditions have a lot of prejudiced aspects to them, but the garter toss deserves a special mention. Traditionally speaking, the groom is supposed to reach under his bride’s dress to find her lingerie and then fling the garter into a crowd of other men.
To make the situation worse, the bachelor who catches it is then supposed to find a“lucky” bachelorette to wear it. Like really, who came up with this nonsense? Catching the bouquet seems less inappropriate next to this.
The Best Man’s Speech
There shouldn’t be mandatory speeches based on someone’s gender role. As woke as that sounds, it’s true. Perhaps the “best woman” wants to make the toast and prefers public speaking over her male counterpart. On top of that, nobody should be pressured to do something just because tradition says so.
The wedding speeches should be sentimental, light-hearted, and joyous. Not forced, awkward, and presentation. So try to see speeches as a choice rather than the bridal party members’ obligation.
Bachelor and Bachelorette Parties
We aren’t opposed to the concept of grooms and brides enjoying a night of relaxation before the big (and stressful) day. However, we do not condone the idea that it’s their “final night of freedom.” Treating marriage like it’s shackle-binding just doesn’t fly.
If you regret leaving your bachelor or bachelorette days behind, perhaps you aren’t prepared for the commitment that is marriage. Go out, rejoice, but try not to indulge too much in foreign pleasures simply because you think you “deserve” one last night of wildness.
Anyone who has sat down and gone through traditional wedding vows would know how messed up some of them sound. For example, phrases like asking for the bride to agree to “serve and obey” her future husband.
Additionally, there are others that “command” the bride to “submit to” and “seek to please” her spouse. Please, can we update these with 21st-century eyes and morals? Writing your vows should be a meaningful, personal and beautiful process where you get to express your love for each other.
There to Support
Considering the content on this list, we understand the hypocrisy of mentioning this next one. However, the point of what the Redditor is trying to say is that we shouldn’t criticize or judge other people’s decisions on how they want to celebrate their wedding.
Whether they want a 500-person, over-the-top reception or a small and intimate garden ceremony. Each to their own, right? And if you love and respect the couple, then chances are you’ll very much enjoy their wedding. Ultimately, it’s a symbol of their eternal love.
We have all had those hilarious laundry accidents that have left us with different garments from the ones we initially placed in the washing machine. Prepare to laugh your socks off because here are a few examples of the funniest laundry fails!
Saved Me One
You run to the store, and you get yourself a Snickers bar and an orange soda. After your drive home, you pop your pants from the day in the wash and forget about all your worries! Oops, there goes your money. Luck was on your side after all!
Having a set of earbuds is something almost everyone has nowadays. If they’re not in our ears pumping our favorite tunes, then chances are they’re rolled up and in our pocket. And it’s all fun and games until you land up in the same sticky situation as this dude.
But hey, let’s look at the positive side of things – now he has an excuse to go out and buy the latest pair. We’re pretty sure those ones were outdated anyway!
When the air is dry and hot, you often find yourself with chapped lips. This means that you probably have a Chapstick or lip balm somewhere on you at all times. Like with other small essentials, it will probably find a home in one of the many pockets of your jeans or jackets.
As bad as it sounds to leave your lip balm in the laundry machine, from the evidence shown here, there wasn’t such a crime scene to report on after all. Luckily the tin container kept the balm in place.
Sharing memories with family is always heart-warming, especially when one of them has passed on. This is why scanning old photos is so commonly done. Unfortunately, this mom had the right idea in mind but like all moms, she got sidetracked and forgot that she had it in a pocket.
Even though the photo is obviously crinkled and worn out, we can still make out the little boy in it. So, in our opinion, the mom should carry on with her lovely gesture and still get it scanned.
‘Stick’-er With It
When you buy a new shirt, the first thing most of us do is throw it in the washer. Often the fabric is a bit rigid at first or the smell isn’t wonderful, so a quick spin around the washing machine usually does the trick.
How a sticker lands up in the washer with your other garments, we don’t understand. However, the shattered moon effect kind of goes with the shirt’s design. Don’t you think?
A Striking Mistake
Matchbooks are not something that is often used, and so sometimes they are easy to forget about. They will sit in the bottom of purses for months and are easily overlooked when checking pockets before doing the laundry.
So it’s no surprise here that this person did that and ended up with a balled-up piece of paper and matches that are no longer of use to anyone. Hope no one needs a light anytime soon!
We all trust that the washing instructions given on our garments are accurate. So, when we follow them like a good student and end up with a mess like this one, we understandably feel skeptical and even cynical about the company that manufactured it.
Imagine having to clean up this pillow party? We’d be fuming by this to the point and would probably end up sending an angry letter to the pillow company.
Penny for Your Thoughts
Nowadays, we don’t carry change on us very much as the world is going cashless. So, when we do have the odd penny or two, we don’t pay much attention to them. While that’s all fine and dandy, situations can easily arise like the one below.
Aren’t these coins supposed to be lucky? We don’t feel that way. After all, how lucky can it be if this is how it ends up after a trip around the wash? We’d expect it to remain strong and intact.
Someone’s in Trouble
When you are a couple, one of the nicest things you can do for your significant other is to take a few of the household chores off their shoulders. That is what this girlfriend was trying to do for her man, but unfortunately, she didn’t do a thorough check before adding the clothes.
So, after seeing what happened here, we realize that going out of our way for others isn’t always the best idea. As pessimistic as we sound, it can bite you in the bottom.
Have you ever gone to remove your clothes from the dryer and found more dryer sheets than you had put in? We’ve all forgotten to remove one or two from the previous wash but accidentally washing a whole box of Bounce strips is a pretty newsworthy story.
On the bright side, at least the clothes will smell super fresh, and now this amateur launderer has a great story to tell over the dinner table.
Pop Goes the Pillow
Stress is something we all have to deal with, and we all have certain vices that we lean on. One of those is with a stress pillow. Like every other pillow, this mental aid will need to be washed, but now that we have seen that this is what happens, we are a little scared to wash ours.
Maybe this one just had a hole in it or something. Or perhaps it expanded so much that it popped? Either way, this is quite the mess to clean up!
Stood the Test
Who would have thought that a weak piece of paper towel would have stood the test of the laundry machine? We’re shocked and impressed all at once by this one. We love seeing the supposed weakest link take center stage.
But before we get too excited by this achievement, in all seriousness, who would want to use this paper towel now? Well, maybe there would be a demand since it probably smells fantastic now!
The worst thing you can do is leave your wallet in your pants and then wash it with the rest of the laundry. This will lead to you having to dry out important essentials like your ID and business cards.
For this person, we wonder what was in the wallet when he washed it that it left this imprint on it. If this is just a coincidence that it looks like a dog, then that is an awesome silver lining that came out of this laundry fail.
There are so many questions that go through our minds when we look at what this unlucky laundryman found when he was done with his laundry. But the top one would be, why would you have a single almond in your pants in the first place?
Though it does look pretty cool, we still don’t understand how this happened. We also hope he didn’t eat it after that whole process. It probably tastes like a bar of soap at this point!
Anyone Got a Spare Pen?
This next laundry fail is a common but very unfortunate one – leaving your pen or pencil in your garments to endure the deep dark wash.
The only surprising part of this situation was the fact that this student only had one pencil. Like come on, everybody knows to carry around spares in case of emergencies like this one.
An Expensive Lesson
Whose fault is it when technology finds its way into the wash? Is it the person who did the laundry? Or the person who left the camera in their pocket? No matter who is at fault, it is still a pretty unlucky experience to have to happen to you.
This guy will not live this little accident down for a while. We bet this note was written by his wife in a passive-aggressive fashion to remind him to check the pockets before he starts the laundry!
Too Many Bubbles
Why!? Why would someone do this to another person? It seems that you would be able to see if the machine was in use, so is this just someone playing some kind of prank? All we know is that if someone did this to our laundry pile, there’d be hell to pay.
We’d make this culprit wait for the new load to be clean and then get them to dry clean our clothes until they look and smell brand new. Yes, we sound dramatic and no, we’re not kidding!
Good to Know
RFID tags are something a lot of clothing stores have begun sewing into the tags. This is to help with theft. But if you don’t know it is there, you may end up like this person who was probably so confused at first as to what this is.
We bet that it didn’t affect any of the other garments in the wash. But what this does mean is that this person will not be able to return the piece of clothing that was connected to the tag.
On the Plus Side
Picture the scene: You’re trying to do your wash of whites but you get distracted by your phone and other commotion around the house. As a result, you end up redesigning your wardrobe by replacing your white collection with pastel-colored clothing. Voila!
You can either moan about this new change or try to embrace it like this Snapchatter. Instead of being stressed out about the loss of their white shirt, they just opted to dye it. This is taking lemons and making lemonade for sure!
Unicorns Are Now Extinct
Oftentimes it’s difficult trying to separate a child from their favorite toy, so on the odd occasion that the kid is distracted with something else, that is the opportunity to strike and get it cleaned.
Unfortunately for this stepmother, now she is going to have to figure out how to repair this toy before the kid realizes it’s gone, or she’ll have to have that somber conversation to explain where unicorns go after they leave this world. We don’t envy her decision.
The Distressed Look
If you are not careful when setting up everything for your load, you can end up in some pretty distressing situations. Pun intended. Wow, that was a goodie! We’re gonna drop the mic after that one!
Only kidding, it’s our job to give commentary so we’re not about to stop now. And as for this so-called laundry fail, we actually prefer our jeans distressed. Welcome to the club dude!
Tearing it Up
Okay, what the heck happened here!? This is not a sight that you see every day. Did the machine just act up or did someone sabotage it to avoid doing their daily chores? We have so many questions about this.
This is some serious damage from the looks of it. And we don’t know about you, but we would be a little afraid to use the machine after this, even when it is fixed! Time for a new one if you ask us.
Separation Is Key
You always want to make sure you are sorting your laundry into piles that make sense, you know like whites separated from colors and fluffy garments separated from everything. Otherwise, in the latter case, you’re going to have to invest in a lint roller to deal with the damages.
We really have to give credit to this person for going out of their way to fix their sweater. Honestly, that looks like such a big job that we probably would have called it a day and retired the sweater.
If it Fits
In order to keep a good grip of those golf clubs, many golfers wear a glove. Then when they hit the clubhouse, they take them off so they can enjoy a nice cold beverage. Oftentimes, golfers forget to put their glove in their bag and rather place it in their pocket.
Presented above is the aftermath of this rookie error. Luckily it’s just one glove that now needs to be replaced but we bet they ain’t cheap.
Nothing Like a Little Shrinkage
Money is probably the one thing that gets forgotten in the wash the most. With that being said, this shrinkage of a laundry fail is new to us and we’re actually fascinated by this rare sighting. Do you think the owner of this $10 bill will be able to use it now?
We’d say probably not but even though they’re $10 poorer, they have a cool piece of memorabilia attached to their laundry fail story and that is worth something.
This Is Now a Gift
Wool shrinks up real quick when you put it into water. That is why many wool pieces suggest handwashing instead. And in the event that they do allow machine washing, the instructions are very specific. And judging from this picture here, not everyone reads the instructions beforehand!
While we bet this guy was upset at first by seeing his lovely navy sweater shrunken up into a baby’s size, there is now a new purpose for it. We hope this dude is an uncle or dad who can pass on the sweater to a youngling.
When we first saw this picture, we just assumed that this gentleman was into the cropped sweater trend, however, upon closer inspection we realize that he was probably just too lazy to read the washing instructions before washing this.
Well, he can look at this unfortunate situation from two perspectives – either he can wine and be sad about the fact that his sweater is ruined, or he can feel proud and own his five seconds of fame that came from this Snapchat.
Do You Remember That Pillow?
Washing pillows is something that needs to be done every now and then. It will help freshen them up and remove all the icky stuff left behind. But maybe not all pillows can be washed the same way?
That may be what this person is thinking as they look at their now rice-looking memory foam pillow! How did this happen, and why? Asking for a friend.
It’s Raining Toilet Paper
When you are trying to do more than one thing at a time, sometimes you lose track of things and this is when accidents can happen like this one here. As frustrating as it can feel, this type of stuff happens to us all!
Also, toilet paper is made to dissolve, so when you have it drop into your washer, it will make a pretty big mess. Looks like this poor washer is not quite done with the laundry yet!
Taking a Dip
We all have our phones on us at all times. Some keep it in a purse or bag, and others stick it in their back pockets. This is so they can get to it at a moment’s notice, but this person is gonna rethink that in the future.
We know that many of the new phones are waterproof to a certain extent but not to this level. At least this person managed to get a funny Snapchat in the process. We hope that it cushioned the situation a little.
Time to Mop
Remember how irritated you used to get when your mom would banger you about making sure the lid of items was on tight? Well, after seeing this nightmare of a detergent spill, we hope that you can appreciate her frantic ways a little more now.
Also, there’s a positive to this messy situation – now the floors will smell better and look cleaner than ever before! We’re realizing that a lot of these laundry fails have benefits to them too if you look hard enough for them.
It’s Raining, It’s Foaming
Paying attention to how much soap you put in may seem like a little thing, but just look at the size of these gigantic bubbles to understand that it’s not. While we love a good bubble bath after a long and stressful day, the same cannot be said about our laundry load.
This person is in for a long day trying to rid those clothes of all the foam. They may need to call in a friend for help. That doesn’t look like a one-man job.
Please Untie This Knot
We think that the universe is trying to teach this person a little patience. Or maybe it’s trying to tell him that his sleeves are a little too short and need a good stretch out. Either way, this dude is in for a frustrating time trying to solve this puzzle of laundry.
That spin cycle must have been going pretty fast to get these shirts all tangled like this. We wish there was a machine that could fix this knot but unfortunately this is gonna have to be a man-made fix.
I Can’t Handle This!
Clearly, this person was a little too vigorous with the washer’s handle, and now they will have to figure out how to get their laundry out. Sound like a problem that we’re just glad we don’t have to fix.
We know that we sound a little insensitive here but really, this is the type of accident that we can’t handle. Get it? Wow, we’re on a roll here. Someone give us the standing ovation that we so deserve. We’re still waiting…
Where’s My Mommy?
If clothing could talk we bet this pile of newly washed clothes would be crying out for its mother. After all, who likes being forgotten? That’s right, no one! We are actually started to develop sympathy for clothes – what is happening to us?
We have probably just read one too many laundry stories and are starting to feel attached. We’re gonna go watch a movie or something, we need to snap out of this weird mood.
