People who escalated things to the point of no return


People who escalated things to the point of no return

Most of us have had a moment in our lives where we might have overreacted just a little or taken things that bit too far. It’s not our fault. We’re only human! Thankfully, our actions are nothing compared to some people that escalate things so far that they have no hope of turning back.

No more hugs

Some couples love to send romantic pictures to one another. How else will they remember how in love they are with one another? That’s what we thought. One person thought they would be cute and sent a photo of people doodled on some fingers.

No more hugs

It looks like their hugging, get it? Unfortunately, their partner wasn’t feeling the love that day and wanted to show their funny side instead. That hug soon turned into something pretty unexpected.

Never leave unattended

Many people have tried to compare love to all kinds of things over the years. It looked as though someone settled on liking their affection to a candle. Was it ever-burning? Perhaps it flickered by never went out? No, it actually has us a little worried.

Never leave unattended

It appears that you might want to pay close attention if you’re going to keep this partner happy. If not, they might just burn your house to the ground. Note to self: remove all candles and lock every door at home.

Poor Kevin

Have you ever had one of those days where life just seems a little too hard? Perhaps that day has dragged into weeks or even months? Kevin Mack certainly seems to feel that way.

Poor Kevin

The newspaper wanted to ask people about the worst gift they had ever received. Not only did Kevin answer with “My life,” but the paper decided to run his response. They even captured the perfect photo to go alongside his dramatic answer.

Taking a turn

Although it can seem strange for married couples to write on each other’s social media pages, it was once all the craze – and lets us peek into their relationships. One husband and wife team seemed to have a strange inside joke going back and forward.

Taking a turn

However, we’re struggling to tell if this husband was joking or not when he said that the divorce papers would be ready by the next morning. Thankfully, his wife seemed to take it all in her stride. We just need to work out how the conversation went so wrong so quickly.

Feeling the rage

Let’s face it; it can be easy to lose our cool when our favorite sports team loses a match, or we lose a life on our game. As much as we might want to scream and shout, most of us remember that worse things could have happened.

Feeling the rage

Not this person. They were apparently so upset by something that happened on the TV that they threw their can of drink as hard as they could in its direction. We bet they learned to regret that move pretty quickly.

No more coffee

Coffee Dad is supposed to be a social media page all about one dad and, well, his love for coffee. It sounds pretty simple, right? Most of his posts are all about drinking coffee, making coffee, and what he’s doing with coffee.

No more coffee

That was until something seemed to go very wrong in Coffee Dad’s life. How did we go from pouring coffee to visiting his son’s grave? We’re not sure what’s going on in Coffee Dad’s life, but we hope it gets back on track as quickly as it changed.

Let it burn

It seems as though many of our parents are the same. We try to call them 100 times, and they don’t see an issue. However, we miss one of their calls, and all of a sudden, there’s a search party outside our house.

Let it burn

One person’s mom wanted to know if everything was alright. All it took was one photo to prove that everything was very far from being ok. Of all the things that could have been going on at home, we probably wouldn’t have guessed that it was on fire.

One extreme to the other

Laundry is one of those things that often feels as though it should be simple. So how does it get to be so complicated? We wish we knew the answer. While we might not have a definitive answer, we can guess that dials like this don’t help the situation.

One extreme to the other

It turns out that we’ll have to start buying our clothes in two sizes if we invest in one of these washers. You either get small or extra-large. We’re sorry, but there’s no in-between.

Escalating quickly

Some phrases seem to come and go. One day, everyone is using the phrase, and the next, it’s like someone has rewritten the language as everyone else has something entirely new to say.

Escalating quickly

If you’ve wondered about “Well that escalated quickly,” then look no further. Google has this clever feature that lets you track trends of things. It’s more than just a phrase. The saying really did escalate quickly – that is until everyone found something else to say.

All or nothing

Many of us have seen those anger-inducing photos of people trying to get things out of vending machines only to walk away empty-handed. We’re not sure who designed them to trap food and drink at the top of the machine…

All or nothing

but they have caused us one too many headaches over the years. Not for this person. No, all they wanted was a bottle of drink, and they somehow ended up with half of the contents of the vending machine. We need to find out where this is.

Bump to the head

It appears this group was supposed to be enjoying a wedding or party. There’s no better way to show your excitement than by throwing someone up into the air, right? That certainly seems to be the logic that was used here.

Bump to the head

Sadly, the person reaching new heights quickly went a little too high as they had a sudden introduction to the ceiling. We’re just glad that someone was there to capture the moment. We think the guy on the roof might need help remembering what happened.

The sudden U-turn

We might have heard of a whirlwind romance, but we’re not sure that we’ve seen one take such a massive detour in so few hours. To start, someone was gushing about their wedding that was due to take place in less than a year.

The sudden U-turn

Just a couple of hours later, they called themselves a “failure” before announcing to the world that their marriage was over. We’re not sure what happened, but we hope they gave everyone an update later on. We feel too invested in the story not to know.

A new level

Social media is a place for us to get all kinds of answers to whatever questions we have at the time. It appeared that someone wanted to start a discussion about how creepy they find it when people run at others with a huge smile on their faces.

A new level

It wasn’t long before someone had a quick response to their statement. However, it was the second answer that had people questioning. Yes, we’re sure that someone of that description would indeed be pretty creepy.

No need for tears

Sometimes when we make stuff in the kitchen, things don’t exactly go our way. And yes, sometimes we might spill something on the floor and make a huge mess of things, like what happened to this girl in the photo.

No need for tears

We know how frustrating it can be, but we feel like maybe breaking down crying might be an overreaction to some spilled soup – especially when you can just mop it up and microwave something else.

Jennifer’s journey

Jennifer Anniston has been in the media ever since she hit the big time in the sitcom ‘Friends.’ However, it’s not just the actress’ career that has got us talking. Many want to know all about her personal life and her relationships.

Jennifer’s journey

Jennifer started dating Justin Theroux back in 2011. The couple eventually got engaged and walked down the aisle before they separated in 2017. This magazine stand appears to cover all the inside gossip in one swift movement.

Wong kind of date

If we had to guess when we were going to have a date with Santa, we’d have to say that it would be some time between Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. We know that the man in red is busy. Who knew he had time for a love life?

Wong kind of date

We just don’t know that we want that kind of date with Santa. The store has even gone to the effort of getting seasonal sheets for the occasion. Perhaps it’s time to find a new ad for a meeting with the big man?

The secrets of the mailman

Mailmen have a tough time when they have to fend off people’s dogs. No one really knows why mailmen seem to be such a threat. We might have to ask the dogs for an answer to that one.

The secrets of the mailman

One woman had to apologize to the mailman when her mom’s dog attacked their local mailman. However, one thing led to another, and she was now looking for a way to explain that she might be pregnant. That was quite the unexpected delivery.

A holiday romance

Learning a new language can be fun – and tough. Thankfully, someone has created a new guide about how to describe your relationship in French. Little did we know that it would soon become a romance novel in the making.

A holiday romance

To start, someone just can’t get their new love off their mind. Sadly, it’s not long before emotions get mixed up, and it all becomes too much. If you’ve ever wondered how to cool off a relationship in French, then this might be the guide for you.

An easy mistake

We have to admit that if we looked out the window and saw a giant black bird in our yard with wings that were two feet wide, we think we would be pretty scared, too. Someone was so worried about the addition that they called for help.

An easy mistake

It wasn’t until they arrived that the team realized why the bird was being so tame. That’s right; the caller somehow managed to get a bird and a grill cover confused. No, we’re not sure either.

A quick cut

Some fans will do anything to make sure that their idol’s name is kept out of the dirt. Justin Beiber is one that has been able to divide the world over the years. Some avoid his music at all costs while others are true Beliebers.

A quick cut

Nothing will stand in their way. Unfortunately, one girl found herself on the receiving end of an out of control fan. Hopefully, they were planning on cutting their hair short, or this really is as bad as it looks.

A little too clever

Cleverbot is an intelligent piece of AI that learns from humans so that it always has the perfect response. In fact, it can sometimes come up with things that sound a little too real. This wasn’t one of those times.

A little too clever

It looks as though someone wanted to play a game with Cleverbot and even tried to start a pillow fight. Sadly, Cleverbot must have superhuman strength as they grabbed Mars in retaliation. Here we were feeling sorry for Pluto all this time.

Gordon Ramsey wouldn’t be pleased

Cooking isn’t always as easy as it seems. Someone thought they would save themselves the hassle and heat something in the microwave instead. If only they had covered up their bowl before they gave it a go. The result?

Gordon Ramsey wouldn’t be pleased

What we imagine was a pretty loud explosion followed by the realization that things escalated a little too quickly. Quick reminder: you might want to heat something for a few minutes rather than a few hours next time.

Hours in a spin

Cute relationship messages? Almost. Someone wanted to surprise their partner with a good morning text. The only problem was that it was 11 at night, and the morning was long gone. So what happened?

Hours in a spin

Their partner tried to find out only to learn that was the wrong thing to do. Apparently, their partner was trying to be “cute,” and it didn’t take long for them to go from naught to 100. Never question the text, merely accept the strangeness.

Sudden collapse

Although many of us have wished that the ground would swallow us up, the chances are we don’t think that when we’re driving. You might want to stay away from this street. This warning sign really wants to emphasize the danger you could face.

Sudden collapse

Sure, they could have just written that sinkholes might occur in the area, but where’s the fun in that? Sometimes we need to live life on the edge, no matter how “catastrophic” that might be.

Never hungry again

It can be easy to make one too many pancakes. While they seem like the perfect meal, their sweetness can often be too much and leave us feeling a little uncomfortably full. Thankfully, this guide has all you need to make the perfect amount of pancakes.

Never hungry again

On those days when you need to make some for you and a friend, opt for the 14 pancake recipe. The days that you need to feed your entire street? You might want to check out the one for 132 pancakes.

Feeling the heat

There is a good reason that our parents always told us to wear sunscreen when we go outside – even when it is gray and cloudy. You never know when you might get sunburned, and it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Feeling the heat

Sadly, people in this area needed more than just sunscreen at 9pm. It looked as though the sun was about to take a trip to Earth as things got a little hotter than expected. We’d like to say this was a mistake, but stranger things have happened.

Told you so

If there is a sign warning you about something, then the chances are there is a good reason. Geese often look like happy, feathered creatures going about their own business. That is until you meet the ones with an ulterior motive.

Told you so

These geese had a burning rage deep inside. Apparently, they were willing to take it out on anyone who crossed their path. We guess this person thought they would take a shortcut and ended up on the wrong side of the goose. They were warned.

A serious threat

It looks as though one store really wanted to make a point that children under 12 years old needed to stay with their parents if they wanted to keep safe. So what about the ones that wander away from a responsible adult?

A serious threat

They end up getting… Cooked? We guess that’s one way to make sure that people follow the rules. If you head to this store, be sure to keep your child by your side unless you want to find out if this sign is telling the truth.

No parking, please

Many businesses have taken it upon themselves to make sure that no one parks in their way. Just because they didn’t make the law doesn’t mean they can’t enforce it. Someone wanted the world to know that the parking spots were private.

No parking, please

If not, you could return to find that a sledgehammer has been taken to the car, it’s covered in paint and burn marks, the vehicle is on its roof, and you somehow have a criminal record thanks to a daylight robbery. Wow.

Expensive cookies

If you’ve had one of those moments where you’re so hungry that you feel like you could eat an entire tray of cookies, then you might want to think twice before you order from this store. It’s for those of us that are hungry but not starving.

Expensive cookies

Three cookies will set you back a cool $1.35. Four cookies? You best get out the checkbook as you’ll need more than $5 million for the privilege. The stall knew their cookies were good, we just never knew how good.

Dreaming big

Being a kid means that we have the whole world at our feet. Nothing seems too out of this world as our imagination can make anything a reality. One kid was asked to write three things they wanted to do in the future. Number one: get a girlfriend.

Dreaming big

Seems harmless enough. Number two: kiss her. That sounds pretty sweet. Number three? Rule the world. Yes, you read that correctly. This kid has grand plans. Hopefully, no one stood in their way as they climbed to the top.

No indoor chainsaws

There are many times that parents want to step up and be there for their children. Apparently, someone has even written a book all about how to be a good and bad dad. Start by taking a small knife and using it to chop carrots with your child.

No indoor chainsaws

They can do the stirring while you do the preparation. However, don’t think that a chainsaw to cut the carrots would be a good idea. Thank goodness a book told people this wasn’t great. Imagine how many chainsaws could have been used without the warning?

Selfie time

It appears that one person wanted to take a harmless photo with their cat. Cat? Check. Camera? Check. Pose? Almost. All their cat needed to do was sit there and be cute. Apparently, that was too much to ask.

Selfie time

Instead, this feline friend thought that posing for a snap meant actually biting their human’s face. We guess they aren’t a fan of being forced to smile. However, we wouldn’t recommend this the next time your friends want to take a selfie. It doesn’t usually go down well.

Here comes the bride

Getting married often conjures up similar images for many of us. Some think about the big white dress. Others picture a chapel filled with their friends and family. Some of us even dream about the first dance and party at the reception.

Here comes the bride

Most of us don’t typically envision a cop car being there. It appears this woman was about to have two very different people walk her down the aisle than the ones she imagined. That would have made quite the story to tell the grandkids.

Desperate for candy

Vending machines are enough to drive many of us to the edge. All we want is a sweet treat, yet someone in the universe is trying to screw with our day. Someone was unlucky enough to watch their candy bar get stuck in the machine.

Desperate for candy

When the rock didn’t work, there was no choice but to grab the nearest forklift and get working. The hard work paid off in the end as they scored three candy bars. Sadly, losing their job probably put a damper on their victory.

Knowing the risks

Many of us want to do all that we can to save the planet. Sometimes, we need to take the bus or park a little further away and walk. Other times we need to think about the amount of plastic that we’re using in our everyday lives.

Knowing the risks

What about the amount we use the bathroom? Amazingly, this isn’t a poster warning us about using too much water. Instead, it’s a sign that reminds us of our eventual end if we forget to flush. We never knew this was such a huge risk.

Making a sale

The internet is a wonderful invention. After all, it holds all the answers to any questions that might cross your mind throughout the day. Someone wanted to know “how to sell” something. It wasn’t until the suggestions popped up…

Making a sale

that they got a glimpse into other people’s thoughts. Some wanted to know how to sell cars or how to list things on other sites. However, a worrying number of people must have searched for how to sell their soul to the devil…

Delivery fail

While deliveries are great, they can also be a pain. We no longer have to search high and low in the store for our items. Plus, we can get everything for the best deal possible, all from the comfort of our own home.

Delivery fail

We hope you like your house because if you are anything like this person, you’ll have to get used to it. Apparently, the delivery driver put the parcel in the worst possible place as they couldn’t open the door and ended up trapped inside.

A new franchise

We’ve heard of the fantasy movie ‘The Hobbit.’ However, we’ve never heard of ‘The Hobbit Frozen.’ Is this is a new movie in the franchise? How could we have missed such an announcement?

A new franchise

It turns out that the frozen version of the film didn’t last long as things soon hotted up in The Shire. If you hung around long enough, then you might have been lucky enough to catch a viewing of ‘The Hobbit Catching Fire.’ What happened out there?

This boss has had it

We kind of feel for the employees of this office. This is hardly the message you want to be faced with every morning, at the place where you invest so much time and effort.

This boss has had it

Apparently the boss who decided this sign was appropriate, is the not the most chill type. Instead, he or she prefers to make it clear they’re not a fan of all of their employees…Whoever wants to remain at this company, clearly needs to step up their game.

That was not a good idea

Ok, who doesn’t know swans are only pretty on the outside but basically pure evil on the inside? They are extremely territorial and in a perpetual state of cranky. So anyone who chooses to go on a little rowing boat trip in the middle of a swan’s living room, is asking for trouble.

That was not a good idea

The swan might look like the bad guy here, but the situation really started escalating when this man decided he wanted to paddle as close to a pretty swan as possible. Karma in swan form is not pretty.

Respect your librarian

Librarians don’t get the appreciation they deserve. They are almost like teachers, in that they help culture and educate especially children and teens. And their job is not easy.

Respect your librarian

Imagine running a place that needs to be completely quiet, and extremely organized – when your main clients are rarely quiet and never organized? Not to mention, they don’t respect rules – at all. One result is slightly harsh signs, like this one. We would not want to be a visitor getting caught eating outside of room 200…

How to make an enemy

Neighbors can be nice and friendly, but unfortunately more often than not they are the weirdest, most annoying people we have ever met. So many tend to loose their marbles a little, when trying to reason with that complete stranger who lives right above them.

How to make an enemy

In this case, both parties are acting a little crazy. Sure, we get that the person who started this was basically asking for his downstairs neighbor to get angry. But vacuuming the ceiling at 3 AM seems a little extreme…Maybe just talk to him instead?

Someone’s cranky…

Three exclamations marks after the first sentence, and another three after “thank you” did make this sign come off as a little aggressive. So perhaps whoever wrote it shouldn’t be surprised a snarky response was put up almost immediately (and clearly by their superior..).

Someone’s cranky…

We kind of agree with this one, Comic Sans is not the font to be used if you’re an adult who wants to be taken seriously at the prestigious company where you work.

The classic flatmate war

Sharing apartments with friends (or strangers) during your twenties is basically a rite of passage, but not necessarily a fun one. Many have never let their emotions (and pettiness) get the best of them more than when sharing an apartment.

The classic flatmate war

Beth right here claims her flatmate made her angry (without really specifying if they did anything very horrible) and decided to respond in a dramatic manner. Rather than having a constructive discussion about house rules – she chose to escalate things significantly.

Everyone knows it’s you, Debbie

Stealing food is a big no no in the workplace, and a sure way to create enemies and cultivate never ending office feuds. Someone should really have told Debbie about this fact. Now she instead finds herself on the office blacklist, and everyone is coming for her – without holding back.

Everyone knows it’s you, Debbie

Putting notes saying “NOT Debbie’s” on every single Tupperware and lunch bag might protect the food, but will also possibly add even more fuel to this staff fire.

Just some brotherly love

This young girl who has clearly stolen from her brother, is learning her lesson the very hard way. We’re not saying what she did was right, but her brother’s ingenious and forceful response might have set off a family war that will continue for generations.

Just some brotherly love

He put so much time and effort into constructing this masterful revenge, it’s hard to not imagine his sister getting so angry she went right ahead and escalated things further, by an even better revenge plot…

Take one at your own risk

This is confusing..there are barely any pens in this little jar. Does that mean the person put this sign up only after his pens disappeared? Or does it mean his co-workers decided to beat him at his own game?

Take one at your own risk

Perhaps him saying he licks all the pens simply made them all say “challenge accepted”, rather than get scared off from even thinking about it. For all we know, this man’s pens are now hidden all over the workplace.

He had it coming

Anyone who has ever been cheated on has probably dreamed of making a move like this one. But most don’t have the money, or the guts, to really go through with it. But Emily did.

He had it coming

To some it might seem a little too extreme to take such a personal matter and announce it on a billboard, for thousands to see. But perhaps Steven should have thought of that, before he behaved like a sneaky slimeball.

A lover scorned

New relationships can be new and exciting for many people. It can be easy for people to feel the need to share their love with the rest of the world. Jonny appeared to be one of those head-over-heels in love people.

A lover scorned

That was until Sarah apparently did something to get on his wrong side. Within just 20 minutes, Jonny went from gushing about the love of his life to hating Sarah and calling her names on social media. That is quite the turn.

Taken on an adventure

Sometimes, we want to catch up with a forgotten friend. All we need to do is reach out, and it might not be long before we rekindle our friendship. Someone thought they would do just that as they asked their friend how life was going.

Taken on an adventure

While they replied with the obligatory response that everything was going well, their old friend had quite the tale to tell. It was one that contained romance, house moves, and everything in between. The best bit? It was on their social media page for all the world to see.

No nonsense Barbara

There is always two ways to approach every issue we are confronted with: we can choose to either be civil, or we can decide we would rather not be so polite. Barbara, clearly has no patience for cordiality. Barbara would rather you do the right thing, or be subject to her wrath.

No nonsense Barbara

Barbara is the sort of person who would poke you with her cane if you took too long in the grocery line. Barbara would rather the doors shut on your feet when getting on the bus than have the driver wait for you to board.

Slip ‘n Slide Bride

Hopefully this bride’s marriage will be a lot smoother than her wedding day. Everyone knows wearing a gown up the stairs can be a tricky walk to maneuver, and that’s why we employ our friends as our maids on our big day – so they can assist with these small things.

Slip ‘n Slide Bride

These friends, however, decided to ditch the bride and run. Well, it’s a rough world out there, and as they say: each man for himself.

Nothing to see here

What could this woman possibly be hiding in her bank account that she had to go to the extreme measure of covering the ATM machine with an entire garment of clothing?!

Nothing to see here

Our bets is that she is worried about people seeing her millions that she is illegally laundering, or perhaps she is embarrassed by some outlandish extravagant transaction she’s recently made. There’s also the possibility that she’s taking out wads of cash, and who knows what that would used for! Either way, this seems a little suspicious…

If you don’t know, just Google it?

Apparently these are the top three things that people would like to be informed on how to do away with: bed bugs, zombies and 11 million people. Well, the first is understandable – no one likes sleeping with little critters chewing on their skin.

If you don’t know, just Google it?

The second, however, is a little confusing… haven’t zombies already passed away?! The third is just pure evil, and all we can wonder is how many people have escalated to this point of frustration with the general population that this comes up as a top hit?!

Washing instructions

If anyone was under the impression that children should be placed in the washer along with their clothing, then thank goodness for this company setting them straight. On the tag itself is printed the instruction that after turning the clothing inside out, ensure that the child is removed before placing the garment in the washing machine.

Washing instructions

We must say we are relieved – we would not want to see any harm come a child’s way from a misled launderer.
