If you can't laugh at yourself, you aren't doing it right.
Man, I've got to learn to laugh more when shit goes wrong rather than berate myself - far better for my long-term mental health.
It kind of helps when you know there's at least 1 other person in the world that's done the same thing you did. That or think of it from a person standing off to the side, whatever it is that just went wrong probably would give a bystander a laugh.
I had a veteran officer once tell me, "There's nothing you can do that is so stupid that it hasn't been done at least twice before." Remembering that has helped me feel better a few times.
I'll remember this line.
The stupidest thing I can remember myself doing at the moment is when I was doing a call back for a sale and the guy says "yeah... call me back, I just got divorced." All upset and flat. I stayed silent for a moment and then said all professionally "would you like to update the last name on the profile?". It wasn't even a woman.
I would only laugh in that spot if I was totally psychoticly losing it, killing joke style. Otherwise I’d curse a bit, kick the trash then clean it up

3 points? This comment is underrated.
"Maybe next time you'll rate me."
I once peed my pants, after forgetting to pee for several hours at work, then on my hour commute home. We had a shared driveway with our neighbor and literally at least one of them was always outside, ALWAYS. Well, I near my neighborhood, I’m unbuckled, pants unbuttoned driving like a fucking psycho because my bladder is doing that “close to the toilet, time to pee” proximity thing. Park, jump out of the car without shutting the door or turning it off, and run to my door. Cannot get the fucking key in the lock. Piss my pants on the patio, finally get the door unlocked and there is a puddle of urine right outside my door now. NO ONE WAS OUTSIDE, my boyfriend wasn’t even home, and I was so fucking mad I pissed my pants and no one was there to see it because I loooost it laughing at myself. Shit happens, life is hard enough on its own, finding humor in the shit makes life more enjoyable. Everyone else is laughing anyways, might as well join in the fun 🤙🏼
It's gonna be ok 👍
I once caused my brother to nearly shit his pants because I locked his deadbolt when I dropped something off once. Turns out he doesn't lock the deadbolt but does lock the handle.
Just imagine watching yourself 3rd person
For real though, finding the humour in a shitty thing has made dealing with the problem much more easier and less stressful. Life's shitty as is so might as well find the fun where you can.
You can pinpoint when he shouts “B*stard!”
I saw that too, but I thought it was f*ck! " Either way works.
It’s maybe my Scottish interpretation tbf

I think he was crying...
if you do right, you don't have to laugh at yourself
GUYS WE DID IT
WE FOUND SOMEBODY WHO NEVER MAKES MISTAKES
QUICK SOMEBODY GET THE NET BEFORE S/HE GETS AWAY
your right, i never make mistakes
Oh, honey. *You're. <3
No matter how good you do it, you're going to have bad days. Just smile and keep moving.
At least it was DRY...
You just gave me soupy trash PTSD from my restaurant days. shivers
Where do you think I got it from?
We know you extracted the scenario directly from his memories.
What if the memories op extracted this scenario from were implanted there by someone else for op to find?
I've seen this episode of black mirrors.
WE HAVE THE DOCUMENTS!!
ever get cooking oils on your shoes
ever get it out?
I once accidentally threw my car keys into a restaurant dumpster, right as the sun was going down fast. I had trash in the same hand as my keys and let go of the wrong fingers.
If course, it had rained and the bottom of the dumpster was toxic soup. And there I am. In the dark, literally inside a dumpster of a restaurant I didn't work at, fishing for my keys at the bottom of the dumpster.
Some kitchen guys walked out and saw me. They went from being horrified, to being amused, and then back to horrified again as it took me an hour to fish out my keys.
I finally got my keys out using a stick until I felt a metallic clink on the other end. One kitchen guy started to clap until he realized I looked like a seriously angry dumpster troll that might spontaneously combust like a Satanic Oscar the grouch.
I've been covered in soot and melted plastic as a volunteer firefighter but I have never ever been physically filthier than that. I found some cardboard to put on my car seat just so could drive home. And my car still smelled like restaurant trash for weeks afterward.
I'm surprised you survived that. I would died there in that dumpster, for sure.
Yeaaaaah, that's when I'd give in and just get new keys. :-P
Bro I feel you! Any soggy or wet breaded item is disgusting...
One time it rained super hard and filled a bunch of the trash cans up at the gas station in worked at and my boss asked me and a mother guy to empty them because big ups were coming to inspect us. They were so heavy we have to work as a team to do it. So we get this great idea of getting a dolly and building a make shift milk crate stairs to get the bags into the dumpster. They smelled so vile and gross and we couldn't stop laugh and gagging and one of the bags slips and explodes like this. We look over and a man gets out of his truck laughing at us and just says "howdy boys" we laugh and say hi. We finally get it cleaned up and walk back in and go to the back and literally every person is looking at us cause we smell terrible. Get all the way to the office and theres the guy in the truck and our boss watching the outside cameras of us struggling and dropping that bag... I was real suprised we didnt get in trouble for taking so long but I guess since the district manager thought it was hillarious our boss didnt care.
Holy shit dude the amount of times I’ve opened the bin on my way to take out the trash and found that EVERY FUCKING BAG is somehow split open from the shift before me is way too high.
Never go cheap on trash bags or toilet paper, because in either case, when it breaks, there is going to be shit everywhere.
Single ply, please.
I like, to wipe dangerously.
Knowing that a mere millimeter stands between my fingers and pure evil is the motivation I need to traverse that crevice with the utmost of caution.
Oo, just the thought of me makes me want to sniff my fingers. Oh, what joy!
Oh come off it, where's the harm in a little sniff.
Real men use John Wayne toilet paper. It’s rough and tough and doesn’t take shit off anyone.
This was him earlier in his shift.
At least it was
At least it was
It's security footage, and nothing about this scenario seems implausible.
Also, why would you want to fake this? It’d be stupidly annoying to clear up.
You could tell he had a shit day, and that was just the last straw. All he could do was laugh and try not to kill someone.
Yeah the long pause before he laughs is the moment his brain is trying to figure out which one to do.
He isn't an idiot.
Yeah looks like there was a tear in the bottom he didn't know about?
looks like he scraped it on the ground on the last swing
I was thinking that but I don't feel like a scrape is enough to make a tear it would just graise
If there was a tear already it certainly wouldn't help. Both theories could be right.
As someone who worked in a restaurant and had this exact thing happen to me before you’d be surprised how easily a heavy garbage bag will tear on a surface like that
It was a deep tear, on tough ground it opens easily. I've shot more than my fair share of garbage bags
Username checks out.
People say this everytime I comment regardless or weither I'm right or wrong
I legit did this exact thing last month. I had an entire bag of these stiffer paper cards and the corners are quite sharp and easily puncture bags. That and overstuffing the bag (like this guy did) means that they just sliced right through.
This looks like it may have been like, receipts? Might be a restaurant that had menu cards.
You can't scrape, self created tear
April fools 🤣🎉
Edit: To our American friends; the date at the bottom in the video is ISO standard for April 1st.
He could have casually walked it over and sat it in. Instead he chose the much riskier, more exciting approach.
Work smarter, not harder. Bring the smaller cans to the large bin, then either lift the bags out and place them in, or pick up the cans and shake them until the bag comes out.
This guy was just trying to have fun, but now he has to work harder.
They leak and you have to bear hug to lift. This is better method, until this happens. Have done this very thing, still continued to toss them in.
No, he was just acting like an idiot and swinging the bag around unnecessarily like an idiot because he is not an idiot.
Well the swing was to toss it in the bin. I’ve done this with trash plenty of times. He could’ve just casually lifted it into the bin tho or dumped it from the can
He's a mega idiot.
Naw, this is something else.
He should have just climbed in the dumpster and shut the lid. All down hill from here now buddy.
Looks to me like it's gonna be an uphill battle getting all that stuff picked up.
You could see the buffering in real time
Title ruined it.
we all have been there
Thank you for posting this. Suddenly my day isn’t as bad as I thought it was:-)
Unless you get diagnosed with terminal cancer.
"We’ll save money if we purchase the cheapest plastic garbage bag."
Shit happens here.
"It took you 5 minutes to cleanup the mess?! Well, there goes our savings for the next 50 years..."
It took you 5 minutes to cleanup the mess?!
It took you 5 minutes to cleanup the mess?!
We need video evidence that he actually stepped up and fixed his mistake. Otherwise I'm just going to assume he ghosted.
I agree with you.
Reality vs expectations is strong here.
That sad piece of paper that just lands at the end.
I had my fair share of this shit when I was a bus boy
The bag still made it inside the bin. I consider this a win.
No it went behind it
Oh no. He is a failure
Who else thinking why didnt he just grab the bin and dump it like a normal person. Trash bags are really just to protect your trash bin hardly ever want to transport things in them
Yea cause you definitely want to handle a trash bin that's been sitting outside and/or covered in filth for God knows how long and hasn't been cleaned since the devil wore diapers.
Here is your gif!
I am a bot. Report an issue
I love how he has to take a deep breath and stretch before catching that person's trash into a bag!
He looks like a sorcerer or something conjuring a spell then the trash moves and spins around the room and into the bag.
Ive done this before.
Yes, username checks out
He get what he want at the end, he was laughing
Great response, great attitude. How many would start cussing & kicking things?
This happens to me at least once every couple of months. I'm not tall enough to just toss it over. Still happens, even with the expensive bags
This is wholesome
That moment when you realize you're an idiot.
That moment when you realize you're an idiot.
Every single day, pal. Every. Single. Day.
Except that he realizes that that's all cash that fell out so he's happy now.
Not so Glad
And that was the last time John offered to empty the sanitary bin from the ladies toilet.
Not gonna lie, I've been this idiot. But to make my failure even worse, it was a garbage bag full of pizza (worked at a pizza buffet) and there were seagulls overhead. Not my best moment.
I felt that face palm.
Lol that it happened on April fool's day
Just tie the trash bag closed then pick up the trash can and dump in the bag?
I bet that’s the last time he swing a garbage bag like that.
This hasn't happened to me (yet), but I still felt it in my soul. Poor guy.
Well, at least he can laugh at himself...and hopefully learn not to do it again.
Good publicity for a certain brand of trash bags. "Don't get mad, get glad"
Ok, storytime. While in college, I was a TA for the physiology and anatomy lab. As a TA, I helped administer the tests, helped students during class, and cleaned up after each lab. At the start of the semester, the class of about 20 would each get a fetal pig to study. They would perform dissections and study the systems they were learning that week.
At the final lab, we conducted a lab practical (test) after which, they would discard their pig into a large, rolling, trash bin lined with a black trash bag. I was tasked with rolling the bin down to the dumpster to throw out these pigs. The first semester I did this, I had no idea what I was in for. The lip of the dumpster was a little over my head. Being a rather short woman, there was no way I was lifting the rolling bin up and over my head. I did my best to swing the trash bag full of thoroughly dissected fetal pigs into the dumpster. Well, as you probably worked out, the bottom of the bag broke and threw pigs, parts, and fluids all over the side of the dumpster and the ground. Oh the horror... Because it was also summer in the deep South, I couldn't just throw them in there unbagged. So I scrambled back to the lab, partially covered in formaldehyde and pig parts, before it started to stink or attract animals. Needless to say, the following semesters, I was sure to find some help.
Hey, at least he GOT it. Some people stand there and just wonder WTF happened, then blame someone else for the incident.
I did this after a 14 hour shift once and honestly it was one of the lowest points in my life
I've had that happen to me at work before, laughed my butt off, then realized I needed to clean it up. Luckily I had gloves.
Poor guy 🤣
I did this after an event at my friend's church with one of those huge trash bags and it was filled with plates and stuff. It was 10pm and we still had to go to the store and get some drinks and things for the Fishing Tournament we had to be up at 4am the next morning for. So we had a long night....
Shit, pull your panties up and get to work...
At least he realized it. More than I can say for some
CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM INTENSIFIES
If you've never done this, you don't take enough trash out.
Yep. Been that guy
I don't have to throw a bag and spill the contents know who i am. I already know it when i broke a glass infront of my mom. Fortunately she described it pretty well..
A LAZY idiot
fucking raccoons been at the trash again, Karen. I'm not working out there again until they're taken care of.
this reminded me of that video where the guy drops one glass of beer then...
Oh man, unfortunately I know how he feels.. this shit happened to me at work too a few weeks ago. It’s funny how you can feel so pissed, devastated, and sad at the same time lol.
When he was stopped, he wondered if that was real.
..it was at this moment he knew, he fucked up.
That's surely an " oh No" moment
Well... At least it was full of money.
I’m gonna be completely honest. I’ve done this before. Once.
I had to dig through my trash to find a Petco receipt so I can return the new brand of guinea pig food I bought because my guinea pigs threatened to shank me if I didn't. I had to wash the receipt and dry it. Therefore, I am an idiot.
So why is he an idiot.
It's not his fault the bag broke.
I've most certainly done this at my job. I work at an assisted living facility. Imagine this but with puree food, it's as great as it sounds.
At least he laughs about it. That sucks dude, better start cleaning up!
This perfectly illustrates life
Who hasn't done this lol
I once wanted to unlock my car with the keys with remote and the battery was dead and for a few seconds I was "fuck I cant get into my car" until I realised there is atually a key attached to the remote and then that I am an idiot.
I could smell the trash after the bag broke.
I've done this
Been there. Lived it. Still hurts.
Lol my God I thought this only happened to my dumbass
I blame the Chinese
Is that a dildo?
I mean if he didn't let the bag scrape the concert on that last heave he'd have been fine.
But now? It's time to get the "disposable" broom lol
Wait. Why is the bin even there? Just throw it in the dumpster.
I've done this a few times. The designer of "heavy duty" trash bags is the actual idiot imo
he wanted to throw the bag, he failed successfully
or did he successfully fail?
I love the way his arms just flop at his sides tho. XD
Hefty Hefty Hefty!
Wimpy Wimpy Wimpy!
Even the bag landed on the floor
I did this a few weeks ago with a pack of the cheese stuff that comes in Mac and cheese. Went to shake it all to the bottom of the bag. Boom. All shot too, and out of the bottom of the bag and all over my kitchen. Pretty much same reaction
That last piece of paper flying down like it was a cartoon really adds the final touch
Did he pick it up??
Maybe he starts laughing after realizing he just played an April fools joke.on himself. It does have the timestamps afterall.
"Yeah boss, there were like 3 big ass raccoons "
Good dude great reaction
Was it really that hard to walk the extra 3 steps?
This is painfully staged.
Just walk away...
Holy shit I went to high school with him! I remember him posting on his Facebook a few years ago.
April Fools Day indeed!
YOU FARRED, DAMMITT!
First thought: Can I walk away and leave it there?!?
Second thought: Damn, there's a camera...laugh it off and get a broom.
This exact thing happened to my best friend and I in primary school.
We would help the school canteen staff by taking the rubbish bags to the dumpster at the end of lunch. We’d get to skip some class and get an icy pole out of it.
One day I was dragging the rubbish bag behind me and go to swing it in as usual, except the bag split.
this is something that would happen to me
Laughs in dude perfect
It was literally RIGHT THERE
That moment when you realize that you have to clean everything up
Fake as fuck
i laughed out loud!
Can't teach this kind of stupid. 😆
Im 69th comment
Trash cans positioned in the middle of the room, camera strategically framed: staged.
While it does seem odd that the trash cans are in the middle of the room, the security camera lining up well is a really bad indicator of being staged. You've got millions of security cameras all over the world, so some of them are bound to get a good angle.
Yes, I am sure they wanted it to appear legit. I mean if you are going to stage something that looks like it is a security camera, why be obvious about it.
It's a phone camera recording a security monitor cutting off parts of the full video.
Any links to the full video would be appreciated.
The video is outside, the camera is strategically framed to see people walking in either door. He probably moved the trash cans there because it's easier than carrying the bags alone.
So you're going to pull the trash bags out of the container and put them in the dumpster. Logically you wouldn't want to put the trash cans right next to the dumpster where you could just simply lift them out and directly drop them in the dumpster; much more efficient to have the trash cans several feet away and throw them several feet to the dumpster. /s
what an idiot
he tried to save a little effort and now he has to make ten times as much
