26 Hilarious Times Expectation And Reality Were As Different As Day And Night



One thing you should know always is that when your expectations don’t match your reality, there’s literally no reason to be unhappy. The scenario can be perceived from a different angle, and interestingly a failure can be a good reason to laugh-out-loud.

It’s understandable that humans’ assumptions can often lead to stress, most especially when they don’t match expectations. As mentioned above, it’s best not to take it at heart but laugh it off when given the opportunity.

New taco cravings from Burger King, Pancakes at my hotel this morning or expectation of some ores and many more in this article are good examples that show reality has saline humor. On the other hand, it’s apparent that our expectations can confuse us into believing that our goals will bring forth much more than they actually do, therefore we pursue the wrong goals.

Nevertheless, listed here 21 real-life scenarios where people had their expectations smashed before their very eyes, and instead of being all upset, they reached a decision to share and give readers a good laugh. Enjoy!
