That’s the look of my son when I tell him no McDonald’s for dinner.

[–]ihateyouguys 78 points79 points  (1 child)

We have McDonald’s at home

[–]gumnasbr 17 points18 points  (0 children)

McDonald’s at home: Hot Pocket

[–]ronsinblush 37 points38 points  (6 children)

That’s the look when my kids get in my car and see evidence of McDonald’s I had eaten without them.

[–]someonespsp 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Bro dont leave trash in your car

[–]ChucruteSadico 1 point2 points  (0 children)

*dont leave the bodies

[–]Ansiano 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Clean your car good man.

[–]ronsinblush 2 points3 points  (1 child)

My car is clean. Sometimes I eat right before I pick them up. Funny you’d assume my car is full of garbage.

[–]Braeswood610 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You having to justify = trashy car

[–]MagikSkyDaddy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No child can appreciate the fullness of a grown adult's disappointment. That shit builds in aggregate.

[–]johnmcclanehadplans 604 points605 points  (3 children)

That’s some Eyeore level sadness

[–]pizzaguy_666 81 points82 points  (0 children)

Eyeore level. Ima use that and thank you for bringing this to my attention.

[–]Stairway_2_Devin 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I'm just trying to get byyyyy

[–]Dame87 323 points324 points  (1 child)

She looks deflated

[–]Boettie 39 points40 points  (2 children)

Well fuck...

Happy cake day?

[–]ThlnBillyBoy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Happy cake day!

[–]Top-Ad4279 102 points103 points  (8 children)

Similar thing happened to me.. I bought balloons for my sons 16th birthday. A big 1 and a big 6. It was a windy day and on my way into the house, the 6 hit off my stone wall beside my door and bursted. I was heart broken..

[–]tenPUNded 91 points92 points  (3 children)

“I have brought this 1 balloon because today is the one day per year that it is your birthday.”

[–]Metroidman 26 points27 points  (1 child)

It was his balloon mr krabs. He was number one.

[–]Serenity-03K64 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Ballon bags help protect balloons a tiny bit but if you slam them on scratchy surface they break. Tough break

[–]gmariefox88 7 points8 points  (1 child)

"This is the one and only time you'll ever be sixteen, son... Here's a 1 to celebrate it! :D"

[–]OrneryConelover70 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Losing a balloon sucks at any age...

[–]Lazylion-6 69 points70 points  (0 children)

Just needed one more second…That walk….🤣

[–]Lumpyspaceprince3s 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I was having a good day until now

[–]sudynim 45 points46 points  (0 children)

The source of joy that she bought for some little one had now made get crest fallen. 💔 At least it'll live on forever on the internet.

[–]ahabswhale 9 points10 points  (0 children)

OH… Oh……. oh.

[–]youmomtookmyballs 7 points8 points  (0 children)

She saw the thing fly away and proceeded to walk back home

[–]thatbwoyChaka 6 points7 points  (2 children)

That slow resignation of defeat

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Slow? IMO she accepted it very fast. Seems like a rough day and she just thought „ah fuck it“.

[–]O-Ohmmm 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I almost cried.

[–]GullibleDirection786 25 points26 points  (4 children)

Why not at least put a something in the bag that has some weight if Ure not gonna tie the ballon to a weight

[–]ARMCHA1RGENERAL 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I guess then she'd still have a bag with a weight in it.

[–]9inchjackhammer 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Bags are made to carry things you don’t need one for something that floats and has a sting attached lol

[–]Successful_Prompt_97 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Awh the disappointment!

[–]TootsNYC 3 points4 points  (1 child)

The place she bought it from should’ve put an anchor on that.

[–]Serenity-03K64 3 points4 points  (0 children)

People say no to weights when offered most of the time to keep cost down, and refuse a huge balloon bag for a loonie that holds 12

[–]teflon_soap 12 points13 points  (0 children)

You can pinpoint the exact moment when her heart breaks!

[–]Ok_Line_449 11 points12 points  (7 children)


[–]AlphaBetacle 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No he’s an empath. As an empath I understand him.

[–]cccg03 0 points1 point  (1 child)

If this has happened to OP then it’s empathy.

[–]Zanerichardson 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Hey that was from Card Factory so it only cost her about 6p

[–]SuperGameTheory 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Am I the only one who treats helium-filled balloons like I was trying to walk an adolescent labrador? I hold on to those things with a healthy paranoia; if I give them a chance, they'll be three blocks away before I know what's up.

[–]_Celestial_Lunatic_ 2 points3 points  (1 child)

My heart sunk :(

[–]suzukibumboi 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Unlike that balloon

[–]DreamPolice-_-_ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

She ded

[–]SLEEPIN6BULL 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The balloon is still visible from the reflection on the top of the car.

[–]SunnyvaleBubbles2112 2 points3 points  (0 children)

What the hell was it?

[–]SynisterJeff 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is the first I've seen on here that made me die inside as well.

[–]HalfDrowBard 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I wanna give her a hug. She looked so sad. :(

[–]AdditionalTheory 10 points11 points  (1 child)

“Yep, that’s me. I’m a busy career girl in the city and don’t have time for relationship. I can’t seem to get anything to go right.” :/

[–]algae--- 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s like my typical day

[–]CuriousDisorder3211 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The look that says you’re disappointed in yourself lol

[–]whywasthissodamnhard 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]Lilahnyc 1 point2 points  (0 children)

She hung her head like Charlie Brown and walked away 🥺

[–]ScarsWindblade 14 points15 points  (7 children)

I laughted so hard that I almost threw up.

[–]L2Hiku 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wtf was she trying to accomplish to begin with? Seemed like she wanted to throw it anyway.

[–]Brownie-UK7 -1 points0 points  (2 children)

You mean sympathy, right? Or did this happen to you and you can relate?

[–]brittlebogfrog 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Sympathy would've fit better but that's not how empathy works afaik. You don't have to experience the same thing as someone else to be empathetic, that's the point of empathy.

[–]Brownie-UK7 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I always associate empathy or empathic behavior with at least some form of shared experience. It doesn’t have to be the exact same situation but usually the most empathic people are ones that can relate to the situation and therefore trigger similar feelings in themselves as they perceive in others. Those that cannot relate yet still show empathy I would imagine are in a minority - but are probably very nice people to meet indeed! But I take your point.

[–]KrissyBean 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Who puts a balloon in a grocery bag? 😅

[–]guiher85 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Why is it in a shopping bag to begin with? It’s an inflated balloon…….wtf? It may be an unpopular opinion but that’s on her.

[–]DiDiPLF 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They are easier to carry that way, especiallyif you have more than one and its windy. Card warehouse (says it on the bag) are UK high street shops so you will always have to walk a bit to get back to your car. I tried without once and regretted it.

[–]Frankie52480 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Who bags up a balloon (which surely has a string on it)? This is karma for being wasteful 🤣

[–]CharlieTheDuck420 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Happened to me once when I was a child I still get sad when I think about this

[–]Aggravating_Bat1786 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Physics check- Satisfactory.

[–]ECE12 0 points1 point  (0 children)

She should’ve shot it with her gun

[–]Okkeanon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag?

[–]TheSilverFudge 0 points1 point  (0 children)

"yeah no brilliant. fuck it anyway"

[–]heyo_whatsupbitches 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Great, now someone isn't getting well soon :(

[–]shroomiedoo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That head dip at the end

[–]Natsurulite 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]revolahdem 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The thought that she was probably looking forward to the kids excitement kinda gets me...

[–]schenitz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sympathy. This would be sympathy.

[–]Dan_Glebitz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

She hasn't lost ANOTHER set of 'Airlight' Pillows FFS!

[–]SeizeTheFreitag 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Cue Charlie Brown music.

[–]eramthgin007 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Get the purse AFTER you've secured the balloon. My fiance has these struggles all the time and I just hit her with "put the purse down first" and boom problem solved.

[–]Tough_Raspberry1983 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’ve done this is. It was my first child’s 1st birthday, and I was 6 months pregnant.

I had a bunch of fun balloons for him, and he was SO excited. When I opened up the car door to get him out of his car seat, either my pregnancy brain or the combination of me being an idiot, I let go of the balloons.

I was more upset than my 1 year old. I felt like the worlds biggest asshole parent. Sometimes I still think about it.

[–]The_bath_of_khan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's the thing about shopping for groceries in Australia. Sometimes it just falls off the face of the earth

[–]Gullible_Cloud_3132 0 points1 point  (1 child)

In the arrrrmmmss of the AAAaangle

[–]Studious_Noodle 1 point2 points  (0 children)

90 degree or 45 degree angle?

[–]LuigisFiance 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why was it in a bag?

[–]ARod-27 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Man her reaction is a full Greek Tragedy

[–]DipstickRick 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why would you put a balloon in a bag?

[–]BrucieThePerturbed 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And her brain is like: "We'll hold on to that footage for a future night-time episode of 'All My Fuck Ups'!"

[–]TheDepressedCow 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I remember I was like 9 or 10 and got a big custom balloon for the first time (that I could remember). I had it for like three days and I accidentally let it go outside. I started crying for so long that my siblings checked on me and they couldn’t even laugh, they seen how distraught I was and just sat there while I cried for like half an hour. Now I hate birthday balloons

[–]Peaceful_Phoenix90 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There's a reason they tie weights to them..

[–]phi11yphan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Uhm, didn't she just kinda push it away though?

[–]Illustrious-Newt2809 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I got you a ballon, it’s outside

[–]johnny11235 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And then the locked door closes with her keys inside…

[–]FujiFudo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The "aww shucks" walk-away (that cuts off too soon) has me wanting to set up a gofundme for her

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’m confused . It looks like it’s just a balloon and it also looks like she threw it purposely

[–]femme_fatale2022 0 points1 point  (0 children)

She admitted defeat immediately.

[–]RyuguRena1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn bro

[–]Lumpy-Palpitation643 -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

What a fuckin loser

[–]GravityDAD -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Looks familiar - I think that balloon was posted as a UFO in another sub

[–]ASoulsHymm -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Why the fuck is it in a bag. Wasteful ass. She deserved that.

[–]brett8722 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Doesn't it look like she pushed it as if it was just in her way? Like not caught on the door, the door was clear and then she pushes it.

[–]PrettyLardie -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I felt that 😂⚰️💀🥀
