Have you ever asked your husband or boyfriend to help around the house, and it ended in pure confusion? Or, if you’re a boyfriend or husband, have you ever done a chore and, when you thought you had it just right, realized you got it all (or mostly) wrong? Don’t worry; you’re not alone. And while these moments can lead to some frustration, they also result in hilarious stories. So if you’re looking for funny and relatable photos that’ll provide a good laugh, you’ve come to the right place.
18 Carat Versus 18 Carrots
When this woman asked her husband for an eighteen-carat necklace, she was probably referring to actual diamonds or gold. Instead, he gifted her this. Sure, she may have gotten her eighteen carrots, but they’re not the ones that she actually wanted. Hopefully, he made his way back to the grocery store, made a return, and then drove right over to the closest jewelry store to make up for the joke.
Every woman on earth would love a piece of jewelry as a gift from their partner. This woman was given one ingredient to a dinner salad on a string.
She Asked Her Boyfriend to Put Her Lashes in a “Safe Place”
Not all women have the mental or physical energy to put their false lashes away after a long night out, which is precisely why this one asked her boyfriend to do it for her. After sleeping off the night, she woke up to find that he had placed them into a gum package, exactly in a space where a piece used to be. Clearly, he didn’t entirely think this one through.
False lashes can be incredibly expensive and are basically considered to be precious cargo for so many women. Therefore, a gum packet might not be the best location for safekeeping.
When He Doesn’t Know Where the Dishwasher, the Counter, or the Sink Are
This guy constantly places his finished dinner plate on some kind of kitchen limbo that simply makes no sense. It’s neither on the counter, nor in the sink, nor in the dishwasher where it rightfully belongs. Putting the thing away doesn’t seem like such a difficult task to accomplish. Maybe he just can’t decide where to put it, so he leaves it there for his wife to make the big decisions. We’re sure it causes a handful of stressful disagreements.
Just looking at this picture gives us a rush of frustration that this wife obviously felt, too. In fact, if we look at this any longer, we’ll have to put this plate away ourselves.
His Version of a Bathroom Curtain That Provides Privacy
The worst part about renting an apartment is that they don’t always come with the necessary accommodations. Sometimes, one of the things missing might be a bathroom door. That’s what happened to this woman and her boyfriend when they moved into an apartment together. “I asked my boyfriend to install some kind of curtain to the bathroom, so we could have more privacy,” she explained. Unfortunately for her, we don’t think he understood the assignment.
A curtain was certainly a neat idea, but we do recommend that this couple invests in a door in the near future.
Her Versus His Watermelon Slicing
It’s super great that this boyfriend decided to help cut some watermelon for his girlfriend, but it’s not hard to guess which box of cut fruit was his work. Maybe he just didn’t know how to cut watermelon in general, or perhaps he just put in a minimal amount of effort. Either way, at least the fruit will still taste the same, even if it was basically shredded into hundreds of tiny little pieces.
Food preparation can take a lot of work, especially when it needs to happen daily, which is why it’s nice when partners decide to help. Although, he surely could have done a better job.
He Promised He Wouldn’t Forget About His Vegetarian Girlfriend’s Veggies
Grilled vegetables are arguably just one of the best parts of an outdoor barbecue, especially if you’re a vegetarian. The long-awaited dish seen below ended in disappointment after this guy promised his girlfriend that he wouldn’t forget them on the grill. Clearly, that didn’t happen since they were basically burned to a crisp. Hopefully, this vegetarian had a backup plan or a couple of other fresh veggies stored away for later.
Forgetting food on the grill will almost always end in disaster, and this is basically proof of that. They became so black and charred that they’re not even veggies anymore.
We Didn’t Realize Candles Need Instruction Manuals
Candles are great; they can light up a room, bring good vibes, and can be used to set whatever mood you’re looking for (romantic, relaxing, etc.). Sometimes they come with one wick or two, and other times they have three. We must note that all of them have to be lit at once, regardless of how many wicks there are. Clearly, this woman’s boyfriend seriously didn’t know how to light this thing.
Three wick candles have three wicks, not for you to choose which singular one you would like to light for the night, but for you to burn all three of them. It just makes sense.
Makeup Time Is Not Bonding Time
Makeup is definitely an art, and sure, tons of men are good at it, but there are also many who simply aren’t. Although some boyfriends might eventually master makeup application, this guy certainly isn’t one of them. It’s not difficult to realize which one was done by Jon, the man himself. Still, based on that attempt at a curve, it does seem like he was trying to seriously make it work.
Boyfriends attempting to do their girlfriend’s makeup has been trending for a while now. It usually doesn’t end up looking too good, so we’re going to put an emphasis on the word “attempt.”
When It’s His Turn to Clean
Women in the kitchen is an old trend; this is why we’re starting to send the men to help out in there. This girlfriend decided to ask her boyfriend to clean the table for once, and he decided to take matters into his own hands. This involved going to get the vacuum and then using it to suck up the crumbs that were already on the table. Unfortunately for him, she wasn’t a fan of this idea.
Although not standard, this is one quick and easy way to get the table clean while applying a minimal amount of work. At least he actually completed the job with no damage done.
What She Meant by a “Bath With Products in It” Versus What He Did
This woman likely had a long and hard day at work and simply asked her boyfriend to put some bath products in the tub while the water was running. Well, instead of squeezing in some bubble bath soap or throwing in a couple of bath bombs, he literally threw in some product bottles. It’s a bit confusing, but technically, he did what he asked to do in a very literal, nonsensical way.
Either this was some kind of practical joke in which her boyfriend took his task into literal terms, or he had a moment of pure cluelessness and felt confident while doing it.
He Took the “ice Cream Sandwich” Request Very Literally
“Babe, can you get me an ice cream sandwich?” she asked from the couch. “Sure thing,” he said. Minutes later, he walked out with this. All she wanted was a traditional ice cream sandwich; instead, he brought her two pieces of bread with ice cream in the middle. You could say that she got what she wanted, and her boyfriend would certainly agree with you. But let’s be honest – this is not what she meant by an ice cream sandwich.
This isn’t an ice cream sandwich. It’s ice cream stuffed inside of a sandwich. It’s all fun and games until she stops laughing and gets upset she didn’t get an actual ice cream sandwich.
His Version of Cleaning up: Putting Shoes on the Counter
We’re not sure what kind of person would come home after a long day and place their shoes on the counter while then also deciding to put a book on top of those shoes. These are certainly two unusual decisions, to say the least. Surely, it would be a man who isn’t aware of the fact that germs do exist and that shoes are one of the dirtiest clothing items ever.
This is less of a fail and more of a bad habit, mainly because everyone knows that dirty shoes certainly do not belong on any surfaces other than the floor.
He Had One Job
Unfortunately, someone putting in a bright red shade of color mixed with a light load of laundry results in something that pretty much looks like this. This boyfriend had all of the right intentions and just wanted to help out a bit, but what was meant to be a good deed ended in a bright red disaster. This guy might have been sent to sleep on the couch for the night.
This is one of the most common mistakes that also happens to be incredibly stressful. All it takes is one colored clothing item to ruin it all.
“Told My Boyfriend to Dress as the Penguin From Batman”
This is one of the cuter boyfriend fails where a themed group Halloween costume idea ended in confusion. He might have dressed up as a penguin that is more of an animal than the comic book character, but anyone coming across the group would still get the point of the idea. Instead of being a Gotham City criminal, he showed up for a fun night dressed as a cute and fluffy arctic bird.
Penguin is a popular character in the Batman series, but either this guy has never seen one of the movies, didn’t get the message, or just decided to have some fun with the costume idea.
Her Boyfriend Discovered Her (expensive) Hair Mousse for the First Time
There are some boyfriends out there who love messing around with their girlfriend’s hair products. This guy was one of them. He surely sees her styling her hair often, so he decided to start doing his. The only difference is that the hair was on his legs and not on his head. He used it to turn his leg hairs into some sort of abstract work of art with a punk twist.
The only problem is that, while he thought this was funny, it wasn’t funny to his girlfriend because that was some expensive hair mousse!
He Finishes the Chips and Then Neatly Stores the Crumbs
Everyone finds one annoying habit that their partner just can’t seem to quit. Sometimes, they’re minor. Other times, they take up tons of space. In this picture is a behavior that became super annoying for this man’s partner. He leaves small pieces of crumbs in the bottom of snack bags and then puts them back inside the cabinet. The habit quickly formed an unwanted chips collection for his very confused and annoyed wife.
These definitely should have been thrown in the trash as soon as they were finished, but this guy compulsively felt the need to store them all in a shared household snack area.
She Asked Him to Cut an Avocado and He Did This
Avocado is a beloved and trendy fruit (or vegetable) that is so much fun to cut and slice, but this boyfriend is handling it in all of the wrong ways. Usually, we avoid the seed in the middle, and we’re pretty sure that’s a generally known thing to do. Scooping out the seed isn’t even a difficult thing to do unless he plans on eating the center. That’s the only acceptable explanation for whatever is happening here.
This image is wrong in so many ways and is basically the complete opposite of satisfying. That’s kind of disappointing, especially since slicing an avocado is one of the best things ever.
He Tried Making Cookies but It Turned Into a Cookie Cake
All this husband wanted to do was to make a delicious batch of cookies for him and his family. Well, he also chose not to follow any recipes, which didn’t end in his favor. His masterpieces soon turned into a monstrous mess in which a few cookies became just one. He clearly forgot to space them out on the tray properly, which is recommended to prevent this precise disaster.
Some people are brave enough to get into the kitchen and start baking without any recipes to look at. As you can tell, that doesn’t always end up working well.
The First and Last Time She Asked Him to Edit an Instagram Photo
You can do all types of fun things on editing software these days with a swipe of a finger. Clearly, this guy took advantage of the opportunity and thought it would be fun to play a prank on his girlfriend when she sent him a picture. Instead of editing in the perfect smile or highlights, he gave her bright green skin with cheekbones so sharp that they could kill.
When this girlfriend asked her boyfriend to edit a picture so that she could post it online, she surely didn’t expect to get a photo of her looking like Shrek in return.
Her Boyfriend Used the Wrong Detergent in the Dishwasher
Sometimes, something as simple as dishwashing can become confusing to those who aren’t paying attention. This boyfriend had to run the dishwasher, and, by the looks of it, it might’ve been his first (and last) time doing it. Evidently, he put the wrong kind of detergent into the machine and created this intense and bubbly mess. Much more than the dishes ended up getting cleaned that day, that’s for sure.
This is just another boyfriend cleaning fail to add to the record books, in which a simple cleaning task turned into a colossal disaster. At least both the dishes and floor got cleaned!
Ice, Rice, Who Knows the Difference? Not This Guy
Getting your partner to buy the correct items at the store can be a task, which is why writing it down and sending them what we need can be helpful. That surely didn’t work for this couple. She clearly requested ice, yet, he happily came home with a bag of extra long grain rice instead. Obviously, he greatly misread this text message, and we can see how that could happen.
Miscommunication is a common mistake in a relationship that often leads to confusion. Still, text messages are supposed to be more of a straightforward way to get the message across.
“Honey, Leave the Lint Roller Somewhere That’s Easy-To-Reach”
There is always that one boyfriend who loves to prank their girlfriend when she’s least expecting it, and this is exactly what’s happened here. All she wanted to do was use the lint roller, but clearly, that wasn’t going to be possible after her boyfriend stuck it onto the wall and out of her reach. Apparently, this isn’t the only thing that he puts in unreachable places since he uses his height as a comedic advantage.
Being the short one in the relationship can come with both benefits and downsides. One of those negative aspects is one hundred percent obvious and has happened in this picture.
Your Husband Getting You Matching Socks Is Cute… Until Laundry Day
Buying matching socks for himself and his girlfriend was a really cute idea until laundry day came along, and things became a lot harder. The issue is that they are the same socks, except in two different sizes. It was a sweet gesture until matching these socks started to take much more time than it originally should have. Hopefully, these two invest in buying different ones, so this stops happening.
A really fantastic idea turned into a laundry day disaster, and this truly is an excellent way to have forever mismatched socks, which might be the most annoying thing ever.
When It’s Time to Change the Toilet Paper
There is basically a collection of empty toilet paper rolls in this woman’s bathroom and the person to blame is her boyfriend. She doesn’t get why he can’t keep the roll next to the toilet where it belongs and just wants him to put the empty ones in the trash. Truthfully, we understand. He’s basically started a toilet paper war that will only end when he decides to do the bare minimum of throwing out the finished ones.
Changing the toilet is pretty much a mini-battle in every single household, and if you haven’t experienced that, you’re either very lucky or probably lying. Although, is throwing out an empty roll really that hard to do?
The Fridge Hadn’t Been Cleaned in Months When He Did This
A woman’s boyfriend has no issues with putting away a miniature piece of butter into the fridge, completely exposed and touching the fridge. Also, we must point out the fact that she’s admitted to not cleaning the fridge in months. So, this butter cube might be better if it was just thrown straight into the trash. Although he did put a bit back with his partner in mind, so once again, it could be the thought that counts.
We have so many questions. Why isn’t it wrapped? Where did that singular crumb come from? These are all questions that we’ll never know the answers to, and maybe it’s better off that way.
Yeah, Those Clothes Aren’t Drying Anytime Soon
Getting household chores done can be a point of conflict for couples that are living together. One person usually has a particular way of getting things done, while the other has an entirely different process. Sometimes that process makes sense; other times, it doesn’t. Pictured here is a questionable way to hang clothes that is just slightly wrong. Everything is piled up together in a way in which the drying simply can’t happen in the first place.
In this picture was a simple request passed on from one girlfriend to their partner, which ended in a completely overloaded drying rack that will forever have wet clothes hanging from it.
How Hubby “makes Something” for the Potluck
When it comes to a potluck plater, most people pay attention to the detail since they usually want to make whatever they bring look appetizing. That wasn’t something this boyfriend had in mind as he was putting this plate together. It kind of looks like he went to the local McDonald’s, bought five burgers, and just chopped them up into tiny little pieces. Clearly, he wasn’t familiar with the homemade part of the potluck.
This dish may not be so pleasing to the eye, but the way it looks certainly won’t make it taste any worse. He should just go for miniature burgers next time.
Right Down the Wrong Middle
One of the best parts of a relationship is being able to share pretty much anything with your partner. That includes anything from secrets to clothing, and of course, sandwiches too. This woman asked her boyfriend to cut their sandwich in half, only to be given whatever is pictured here. Usually, cutting something right down the middle is a quick and easy task, but clearly, not everyone would agree with that.
Hopefully, they didn’t end up sharing this because it is certainly not equal, and we all surely know who would probably end up with the bigger piece of this butchered-up sandwich.
Apparently, He Thinks Pumpkin Rolls Are Made With Dog Food
A woman sent her partner out to get a straightforward ingredient to add to a recipe that she was making, yet he came home with something completely different. Well, it’s practically the same thing as the regular pumpkin. The only difference is that this was canned and made with animals in mind, not humans. Hopefully, this wasn’t used, and he went back out to buy the human intended version of the item.
All this girlfriend wanted was some pumpkin to make some fresh rolls; she likely wasn’t expecting to be brought a new can of pet food supplements made especially for cats and dogs.
He Said, “I Left You Some Ice Cream”
You could say that it was really kind of this guy to leave the last scoop of ice cream for his girlfriend until you realize it’s more like a third of a scoop. She even asked for him to leave her a bit, but it looks like she’ll have to start scraping the sides just to get a decent mouthful. Just imagine looking forward to your delicious ice cream in your freezer, only to come home to this. Ouch.
The likely hood of him leaving a very tiny amount left in the tub so that he wouldn’t have to get up and throw it out in the trash is high.
It Took Him an Hour to Realize He Had Different Shoes on
After walking around the furniture store for an hour, this customer realized that her boyfriend was wearing two different shoes. It’s a common mistake that usually happens when you’re short on time and need to walk out of the door as soon as possible. It’s just funny that she realized this way before he did and even took a picture as evidence. They’ll be laughing about this for a while.
Let’s be honest; this has probably happened to you at least once in your lifetime. These two shoes almost look the same, so we’re not going to judge too hard.
When Bae Offers to Prepare Dinner
A kind boyfriend cooking up a delicious meal for you after a long day of shopping can be both amazing and romantic unless you come home to a plate consisting of nothing more than baby carrots and bread. Sure, the intentions were there- but they didn’t exactly follow through for success. It even took him an hour to make, apparently. We’re guessing he might have had to have grown the carrots and wheat himself.
This guy’s girlfriend went on a quick trip to the grocery store with her grandma just for her to come home to a plate of whatever this strange-looking meal was.
Better Ask Your Friends to Tie It Next Time
This girlfriend found herself a bit confused after she asked her boyfriend to tie her dress since she wasn’t able to reach back there herself. Instead of a pretty-looking bow, he made some kind of knot that was barely able to hold the dress up in the first place. This may have been a big-time fail, but at least he was nice enough to make an attempt in the first place.
Zippering up and typing clothes can be challenging for women to do alone, which is why it often becomes the main job of your partner. Hopefully, they learn to do it correctly after a bit of practice.
A Racoon for a Boyfriend
This boyfriend’s failure is just a bit frustrating, especially since he basically tore the box into shreds. For some reason, this is the way he chooses to open up snack boxes, and his girlfriend just simply doesn’t understand. This look like it was the result of a hungry four-year-old or even potentially the pet dog. Although honey buns are delicious, he just apparently didn’t have the patience to open it up the right way.
Needless to say, the way this boyfriend opened up this package was simply animalistic. He must have been seriously hungry, or he had the local neighborhood raccoon help him open it up.
These Look Worse Than Movie Theater Nachos
A woman simply wanted to dine on some delicious nachos and asked her boyfriend to make her some. She even went out of her way to make the chips herself. His job was to do nothing more than provide the cheese. Well, he went and found the cheapest and grossest brand that he could find in the fridge and decided to melt it onto her perfected homemade chips. Just imagine the disappointment.
One of the best parts of eating nachos is the rich and gooey cheese with every bite. Unless it’s this cheese. We don’t want to eat this cheese. No, thank you.
A Bagel of Nightmares
This boyfriend puts enormous chunks of cream cheese on his bagels and doesn’t spread it out. To make matters even worse, he also sprinkles a ton of salt on top of that. His girlfriend must have had a moment of pure disappointment as she was taking this picture and surely doesn’t understand his bagel-eating ways. But, hey, to each their own. He enjoys eating them like this and likely won’t ever change.
Arguably, the best part of a bagel is the evenly smeared toppings in which every single bite is close to perfection. This boyfriend would certainly not agree and might enjoy mouthfuls of only cream cheese.
This Is How Her Boyfriend Eats Celery and We’re Concerned
This boyfriend must be aspiring to become a rabbit, or might have been one in a past life, based on the way he gnawed on these pieces of celery. We’re not even sure which part he was aiming to eat; he kind of went all over the place. Tons of people don’t even like the vegetable in general, and it’s actually hard to tell how he actually feels about it. Regardless, his girlfriend asked the internet if she should have him arrested for this monstrosity.
The answer to her question is yes. She should have him arrested and put into celery prison, where his munching ways will be rehabilitated and corrected for the common good.
His First Time Eating a Kitkat
Biting into a Kit-Kat brings on some kind of pain for viewers like no other mistake, ever. The best part of the chocolate is being able to break off each section while enjoying every singular piece. Sure, we could cut him some slack because he claims to have never eaten one before, but he should learn the right way to eat them so that his girlfriend will never cringe again.
This is seriously one of the most forbidden ways to eat a Kit-Kat, and we’re pretty sure that this rule is a well-known societal standard. Apparently, he didn’t know that.
Sure, That’s One Way to Put Down Your Ice Cream
A woman’s boyfriend needed to go to the bathroom while he was eating an ice cream cone, so he kind of just stuck it onto the kitchen counter. Thankfully, it was solid enough to stand up on the surface without melting. This was kind of genius. He was able to enjoy his delicious dessert while also being able to run to the bathroom and come back to a perfect cone.
Having to run to the bathroom while eating an ice cream cone when nobody is around is one of life’s actual challenges. This guy practically did the best he could.
A Complicated Way to Cut an Avocado
He seems to have had the right idea when it came to cutting this avocado since the pit was removed. Yet, everything seems to have gone steeply downhill after that step. It’s been sliced into strangely thin pieces, or more like butchered. This could have gone so much better if he simply cut the entire thing in half and then just moved on from there, but that obviously didn’t happen.
It’s, unfortunately, become apparent that cutting an avocado can be difficult for boyfriends. We’re not sure why, but it’s just a fact that you’ll agree with as you keep reading.
