20 Infuriating Pics of Facepalm Moments We Saw This Week

We’ve all had a proper facepalm moment. Not every facepalm moment has the same impact though. Some facepalms are generated by people who are impossibly frustrating to deal with. Sometimes, we just need to slow down and pay our respects to the unforgettable facepalm moments.

1. “They should’ve trusted him.”

A tweet by user @tieshatwo explains a story: A man asked not to have a birthday party due to anxiety. His job threw him one anyway, leading to a panic attack. He was fired for his "behavior," sued, and was awarded $450,000.

2. “Yeah, about that.”

A text reads: "How do I tell my husband that he is no longer good enough for me? I got fit. I got promoted. There are dozens of men at my work that are better looking, drive better cars, stay in larger homes, that have manifested interest in me. I decided I deserve more and better.

3. “Some customers are just the best.”

Anyone who takes it upon themselves to march into a restaurant’s reviews section, and proceed to try to wrongfully diminish their reputation really grinds our gears. It honestly sounds like this restaurant did everything that they could in spite of a terrible situation arising.

A social media post by "sinisterpixel" comments on an article about WhatsApp increasing group chat size limits to 256 people.

A smartphone screen showing a chat conversation. One person asks about a football match. The other replies they scored 2 goals. The first person praises them and asks for the final score, which is 1-1.

It would seem that they at least hit that point of acceptance over the goal misfiring. It can happen to the best of us.

u/sorrowmemes/via twitter.com

Yeah, the best course of action here might just be to look for a new spot. First, because of the new roommates. Second, the landlord doesn’t seem especially attentive.

15. “Seems legit.”

18. “Yeah, simply unimaginable.”

Tweet by Leonard Washington with profile picture, responding to a statement about not understanding how people can stay in one place and not explore the world. Leonard's reply is simple: "Poverty.
u/sorrowmemes/via Twitter

To think that some people skip out on the luxuries of taking themselves abroad. It’s just like how? How? But no, really the real question is how someone could wonder why people might not travel.

19. “They really had a moment there.”

A screenshot of a text conversation. The first message says, "I am here for you". The response is, "Thanks :) I'm going through a tough time so it means a lot. And sorry, I lost all my contacts, who is this?". The reply says, "This is your Uber driver. I am here to pick you up". The final message is, "Oh".

Man, this one is tough. Obviously, the Uber driver is in a tight spot, but you’ve also got to feel for anyone who is that down on their luck. Hopefully things picked up for the better for them.

20. “I can’t imagine why he’d move on.”

A tweet where a user discusses telling a guy after two months of talking that they weren't ready for a relationship. The guy responded kindly, wished them well, and then blocked them, leaving the user feeling devastated. The tweet ends with a crying emoji.
