Scroll below for this fun selection of posts found on the ‘Well, That Sucks,’ subreddit that might be just the perspective we need to apply to our own doomed moments in order to turn it from something awful to something entertaining instead.

arthbach: Hmmm, yes, but it is the responsibility of the gold course to ensure that people aren’t launching golf-ball-shaped-missiles at people’s houses. The golf club should be paying to replacement of those panels, and also erecting netting to prevent this. If the netting can’t be erected, they should be reconfiguring the layout of the course to ensure this does not happen again.

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.

Got wisdom to pour?
