People Who Had to Shrug and Say ‘Well, That Good, if something sucks, you get to work fixing it. For instance, having your sink leak sucks, but if you call a plumber — or even go to Home Depot and buy tools yourself — eventually, it will not suck. The same thing with being hungry — yes that sucks, but once you get to a Chipotle, it will no longer suck.
But sometimes? Sometimes happens that is just so sucky, it inspires no action. All you can do is shrug and say, “Well, that sucks.” It’s the ultimate defeat — you’ve been so beaten down by the thing that sucks that you just start planning your life around this suck, losing any hope of making it better.
Because we love and care about you, we sincerely hope nothing that sucks this bad ever happens to you. But since sometimes these sucky things can be very, very funny, we’ve collected some of the best times the internet was so defeated, they just hung their head, said “well, that sucks,” and went on home.

With a great costume comes great responsibility.
See, this is why it’s so important to choose the right person to zip up your Spider-Man costume. If they get it wrong, you could be stuck inside that costume forever. Then, if the Green Goblin attacks, you’re the one who’s gotta do something about it.
“Please don’t tell the other turtles.”
I came in to find my tortoise-like this. Putting the clues together, it seems he pooped, got it stuck on his foot, ran in circles trying to get it off, and flipped over. Good job buddy.
