25 People Who, If They Didn’t Have Bad Luck, Would Have No Luck At All

We all know people with bad luck. There’s that old saying, “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade” but what about when life slaps you in the face with a frozen wet fish? There’s no doubt that life is a hard, cruel time to be alive. There are many lovely, rewarding, and worthwhile things worth living for, but like any great journey there’s bound to be some road bumps along the way.

The kind of road bumps we’re talking about here are situations in which bad luck prevails over all else. There’s no winning here, it’s only losers who rule this triumphant land of misery. From losing your keys to stepping in doggy doodoo, bad luck can sometimes follow us wherever we go. Superstition aside, whether you believe in luck or not is entirely beside the point. Like it or not, even coincidence can sometimes put a huge damper on our day.

This list isn’t to provide any sort of competition of “who has more bad luck than others.” Rather, it’s a list of 25 different photo observations that we can empathize with, and perhaps even laugh at. They aren’t life or death situations (for the most part) so for entertainment sake, let’s steer clear from the more horrific side of reality where bad luck ruins people’s existences. Instead, let us look at 25 different ways where if people don’t have bad luck, they’d have no luck at all.

1) Vending Machine Problems: Let’s face it. We’ve all been there. At one point or another we’ve got something stuck inside a vending machine. It happens. Vending machines aren’t foolproof. We’d highly recommend not tilting or pushing a vending machine, as an average of 2 to 3 people a year die from having a vending machine falling on them. Now THAT is the real bad luck. However, if you’re like any normal person you’ll refrain from performing a full body slam on the machines just to get your M&Ms, and do what any self-respecting person would do… you order something from higher up to knock it down. Unfortunately for this person, doing so ended up in getting their second item stuck. Now that is truly an unfortunate situation.

2) Hugo Boss Knockoff: We’ve all been subject to a cheap trick. We go to purchase something, only to find that we’ve been completely swindled in a way that makes us feel tricked. That’s also the case for this person who thought he was purchasing a premium cologne. Instead, he purchased “BOOS” which perhaps is bottled ghost farts. Who knows?
