Vacation is a time to get away from it all, right? Sometimes a vacation is perfect and everything will go exactly as you dreamed it up. Other times, however, your vacation may take a turn for the weird. Listed below you’ll find 16 people who got a little more than they bargained for on their vacation!
Oh! The Birds!
Let’s go spend a day out at the beach, they said, it’ll be fun, they said. Here is a pro-tip if you plan on hitting the beach: don’t bury yourself under a pile of potato chips by a bunch of hungry gulls. The craziest thing going on in this picture? Those birds actually have a PHD in peptide synthesis. Vacation is crazy, You never know what is going to happen to you.
Almost Made It
Dr. Bob thought it would be fun to score a nice vacation picture down at the lake. His wife, Ellen, thought differently. Having your own custom peptide company can’t buy you a nice picture, apparently. Oh well, we’re more concerned with ole Ellen’s face — what’s going on under that water? Just wait until they get to the slopes in order to get their next round of vacation photos. Her photobomb ideas are going to get someone hurt.
A Suspect Technique
What could be more competitive than waterslide racing? Well, lady #2 apparently wanted to try out her newest technique. Yeah, we’re not sure this technique is going to catch on. It also looks like lady #1 found out where the rocks were underneath the plastic. There are no winners here. Still, we’re sort of more curious as to what is going on in the background. Why are there so many people at this picnic? Why aren’t they watching the water slide race? Is there something more interesting going on across the park? We find that hard to believe.
Beach Full of Fun
Yep, you looked twice didn’t you — and not for the reason you had hoped for. Let’s just say this: one of these women runs a successful peptide builder out of her own commercial laboratory. The other woman is wearing a hat. Okay, so that’s not true — but it could be, so you should feel ashamed of your initial judgement.
There are three very happy people in this photo. Yep, look again. Keep on looking an yep, there he is. Is this a photobomb? In any event, do you know how we know that this is a NASCAR event? Everyone is holding a beer and nobody is watching the action. Badum, tsss.
Beach Bums Beware
Beach vacations are the way to go if you want to warm up and thaw out after a long winter. Still, you should know that sand can get everywhere. We aren’t sure if this woman is horrified or ecstatic to learn that she’s started her own collection of sand. The fact that we can’t figure it out also further confuses us.
Questionable Tan Lines
If you’ve been with your significant other for a long enough time then you’ll start to synchronize in fun, little ways. Now, we totally are down with the full body mankini but this is, well, pushing the limits. It’s cute that husband and wife both grabbed tan lines on this trip, we’re just glad that we didn’t have to see it in action.
Anybody that lurks around the #fitness hashtag on Instagram knows what we’re talking about. These gym sharks may look good but we’re pretty sure they’d sink as soon as they got into the water. We’re also pretty sure that there is a pile of cooked chicken and rice in a tupperware container just outside of the frame of this photo.
Yup, Still There
Let’s just say that this couple is on vacation from more than just their jobs. Sometimes you gotta just take a peak and make sure everything is still in working order. That is either what is going on or this is another pair of people who just realized that sand can be troublesome on the beach.
Nothing quite captures the accuracy of a family vacation like one of these bizarre, kind of dressy family pictures. Of course, only one person is dressed up here and we aren’t entirely sure that the garb is appropriate. What family photo would be complete without the young teenage son glaring from the corner? Ah, this brings us back to better times.
We can’t quite suggest that you do this water-slide trick back home but we can applaud the dude in the background. Sometimes you just have to sit back, smile, and flash the thumbs up with something totally rad happens. We’re not sure that your parents backyard counts as a vacation so maybe it doesn’t fit this list. Still, this is definitely a vacation from boredom.
Let’s Get a Cat
We know that this picture pose was all her idea. You know how? Cuz the dog is urinating on the guy. Bringing the dog along for vacation can be a tall order. There is so much that you have to do in order to make it worthwhile. You have to pay for airfare, you have to supply the dog with enough treats to stay calm, and you have to find a hotel that will allow you to have your pet. Once you jump through all of those hoops you’ll have the chance to reenact this photo. Yeah, doesn’t sound so great does it? Let’s get a cat.
He’s Not Helping
Is there anything cooler than a well executed human pyramid? Of course, there are tons of things cooler than this. Still, getting seven drunk women to work together long enough to pull this off is impressive. When they asked for a group picture they probably didn’t anticipate him taking it from that angle. Still, when you’re drunk and on a beach you’ll take the photo that you get.
