Have you failed at something lately? But in a way that sort of felt like a win in how unique it was?
It’s a hard feeling to describe – I’m sure the Germans have a word for it, but we English speakers have to rely on just providing examples.
Examples like these fourteen tweets, which all feature a glorious failure of their own.
14. This amatuer historian-detective
That is a VERY dad thing to say.
my dad wants to road trip to JFKs death site to “see if the FBI missed anything” why can’t you just be NORMAL

Take a look, it’s in a book…
i’m sorry I referred to “reading” as “spreading book cheeks”

And that right there is why we’re in this mess.

11. This unfortunate beach victim
That’s the time out corner for you.
Did you know if you get your foot stung by a stingray they make you sit shamefully on the beach with your foot in a sack that says stingray and has stingrays on it pic.twitter.com/tglYkMDn04

10. This time traveling shopper
These are all time-stamped for the same minute, you did NOT think this through.

I wonder how long it was before this was caught.

We’ve all been there.

1. This atrociously unique apartment layout
This has got to be one of the least efficient uses of space I can imagine.
The layout of this apartment I will never live in makes me so mad… pic.twitter.com/AlvC3GYgvD
