29 Worst Things People Woke Up To


My (as of less than 24 hours) ex-girlfriend sitting in a chair next to my bed.


One morning on my friends couch I felt an animal walking up my body. I opened my eyes just in time to see her Yorkshire terroir’s anus hovering over my face.


I woke up to a robber threatening my life if I didn’t give him my cellphone. The robber went inside our house and nicked other stuff, but I think he noticed the phone in my hand (while I was sleeping).


My mom telling me my best friend had been killed in a drunk driving accident.


Mom woke me up because the cat’s hind legs stopped working. I get up groggy and hear a shatter and scream from the garage. Mom’s ankle snapped. I’m the only one who lived with my mom. Called an ambulance, waited with my mom with her shattered ankle and my cat who kept trying to drag herself away until paramedics arrived. After I got my mom taken care of, I had to go put my cat down, and then go to the ER.
