We’ve all had that very worst day combo. 3 hours of sleep combined with a car that won't start, add piles of work sitting on your desk and a call from tax inspection (add your scenario here) and voila, your day has just turned into a nightmare. Call them first world problems, but whoever has been there knows very well just how much it takes to cool off your boiling blood.

Luckily, there’s one band-aid known to humanity that eases this pain. And it’s knowing that someone out there is going through a wayyy worse day. Like, worse². Both vile and soothing, we present you with Bored Panda’s compilation of the most severe day-breaking fails that are impossible not to laugh at.

For those who are dealing with even more severe worst day situations, please get an extra dose of others’ misfortune on our previous posts here, here, and here. And remember that at its worst, a bad day can only last up to 24 hours.

It’s crazy how much some unlucky incidents and totally random things can change the course of our day. In reality, every one of us can go from joyful to plain wrecked in a moment for countless reasons. Spilling your takeaway coffee on a blouse is one, getting a call you didn’t expect is another, and the list goes on.

Bored Panda reached out to Amy Morin, a psychotherapist and author of the book “13 Things Mentally Strong People Don't Do,” to find out more about why such random things like spilled coffee can be an instant day-breaker. Amy explained that it all has to do with us letting negative thoughts in.

“When you believe things like the world is unfair or nothing in your life ever goes right, you experience upsetting feelings.” It’s especially true “when something doesn't work out the way you hoped.”

But what if we teach ourselves to become immune to both small and large misfortunes? Amy suggests that we can, in fact, train positive thinking. “When you notice unhelpful thoughts like, 'This is awful,' or 'Nothing ever goes right,' respond to the thoughts in a more productive way.”

This is the essential point when you can still save your day from breaking. This is why you should try to reframe the sudden negative thoughts into something more realistic. “For example, if you're thinking it's unfair that you have to wait for traffic, remind yourself, 'There are millions of cars on the road. Traffic jams are bound to happen. I'll be OK,'" Amy suggested.

Of course, there are people with a personality that makes it easier for them to be positive, but it doesn’t mean all the others should stay in misery. “Everyone can develop a healthier, more realistic mindset,” Amy urges.“

You can train your brain to look for the good in the world and develop the mental strength you need to perform and feel your best.” Start from small steps like reframing negative thoughts into realistic facts, and grow your positive thinking into a habit.

Accepting things for what they are and not for how they make you feel can be truly therapeutic. In this way, you no longer blame yourself for something as ridiculous as spilled coffee and the day, it keeps on shining.

Having internal security cameras isn't something I would do but hey, everyone is different. Having them and not telling everyone who lives there however, is wrong and verging on creepy. It's the kind of thing that would lose my trust in an instant, even if it was family.

Where were the rest of the household when she thumped down the damned steps? She's not a 15 pound toddler. This girl made some NOISE when she fell. She's lucky she didn't break her damned neck. All the cameras in the universe aren't going to help if you ignore the noises and don't check the live feed to see if you actually need to call the police! Glad Anak didn't break anything.

If you didn't grow up with cameras around supervising your every move, your children shouldn't either. If you have cams for intruders/outsiders/other concerns. DO TELL your kids. It's unfair otherwise. You didn't grow up like that yourself!

This reminds me of the year when we all gathered at my grandma's for Christmas. The first day the kids came running telling us there was a "river" running from one of a wall in the basement. Most of us thought they were playing, but grandpa went to have a look. A pipe had frozen and the basement was filling up. He had to turn off the water. Chrismas, 19 persons and no water. Could it get any worse? Of course, it can. A storm with heavy snow passed that night and the whole area lost electricity as well as phone contact. The roads where blocked and we could not leave until two days later.
