You just did something utterly ridiculous. Stupid, even. You laugh at yourself, maybe even cry, at how terrible you are at completing the most simplest tasks of life. But you are 100% human, and humans make mistakes.
Everyday, we as humans face challenges that may take up all of our energy in order to complete. Sometimes, we are successful. Other times, we fail so terribly that our mistakes make us laugh at each other, or even bring shame to ourselves. These events can be the most hilarious of times, make us steam with anger, cry in agony, or make us rage in fury.
So why not let others read about these sad and funny stories that could teach them a lesson somehow?
The purpose of this page is to entertain Neopians with real stories by other Neopians.
How The Daily Fail came to be.
The idea of The Daily Fail didn't occur to me until late at night on July 5th, 2013. I was putting on my nice Bath & Body Works Twilight Woods lotion on my hands. I took the bottle on one hand and shook it once. What I didn't know was that the cap of the bottle was open, sending lotion flying everywhere.
I then thought to myself, Why doesn't Neopia have a page about these kind of mishaps?
I don't know, I think about strange things off of Neopets.
Of course, if you would like to submit your story, you must follow the guidelines below to ensure it is appropriate for public view.
Follow the standard TNT rules for Neopets. Self-explanatory, I can't make it clear enough. Don't say anything that can get you in trouble when you know it's against the rules.
Your story can be either real-life related or Neopets related. However, you must realize that if you are submitting a real life story, make sure it does not harm your safety.
Please make sure the story is Neo-appropriate. Please do not talk about things in real life that can harm you in any way, shape, or form.
You may be listed as anonymous. Just state so in the form.
When submitting, do not mention anyone's name or username. You may say "he", "she", "they", "we", "them", "it", and the like. But do not note anyone's name or username. Your form will be automatically rejected as that is harassment.
Do not, for any reason, harass the submitters. Self-explanatory. It would be very low for you to harass the stars of the stories. You can get silenced/warned if they report you. Don't do it. However, you may send in fanmail if you wish.
Limit to one story per neomail. I know we all have fun and exciting stories to share, but please limit one story per neomail. I know this can lead to my inbox clotting up, but it makes organizing much easier. You can send more than one form if you have more than one story to share.
Please note that I can reject submissions at any time for any reason.
More rules will be added when they come to my attention.
The Submission Form.
Below you will find the submission form to submit your story. Please neomail it to me, Melanie with the subject title as TDF Submission. If you fail to submit the form correctly, it will be rejected and you may resend it the following week.
Real life related:
The following are the stories submitted by Neopians throughout Neopia. Enjoy them as you wish.
On Neopets: When i was just a n00b, and just starting out withthis account, my big brother gave me a Purple Grundo because he knew my favorite color was purple. Then, i decided i wanted a Uni, so he gave me a Green Uni MP. Afterr i used it on the pet, i think i started saving up for a Purple PB. Then, Boochi came and zapped that Uni and i was like "OMG!!! TNT KNOWS OUR DREAMPETS!!!!!!" Because i still hadn't told anyone my dreampets yet. That Uni is my Baby Uni, Mimatica. =)
On Neopets: I applied for a Water Kacheek, and the deadline was still more than a week away. I went on the Kacheek's lookup to check on the rules (because that's where the owner put them) only to find out that she was not on the same account she was on before. So I neomailed the owner and asked if the Water Kacheek was still UFA, but the owner replied and said that she wasn't, and had adopted her out early.
The lesson?: If you are adopting out a pet and you've decided to adopt out early, at least tell the applicants that you are.
On Neopets in the Pound: On an old account back before the conversion I had a plain Green Kougra that I liked very much. One day he got hit by Boochi. I was very upset! I thought he looked funny and no longer cared for him so I pounded him. This was when the pound was not working for quite some time so he got stuck in there and was auto converted when the change happened. Needless to say I kick myself at the thought of having an UC Baby Kougra had I not pounded him. I was a total noob and didn't know or understand about painted pets.
In Real Life: I guess after school this guy started chasing us with this spary on deodorant and I tried to dodge it but I ended up getting a full blast on it and it smelled like that deodorant a little bit even after washing it (it was one of my favorite tops).
In Real Life: Once I was going down to eat a mdnight snack and I took a whole box of oreos. I took it upstairs to my hideout and my brother was sleeping there. Apparently, my little sister, who's six, likes oreos as midnight snacks too. So she yells "WHERE ARE THE OREOS?!?!?" really loudly. She searched every room and when she came to the hideout, I had placed the oreos next to my brother. When she found it she screamed, "OREO STEALER, I WILL ANNIHILATE YOU!" and started jumping on him. Just when I thought I had gotten away with it, she saw me eating an oreo and said "It was you.." Fail.
In Real Life: I have to get up super early in the morning to get my little one up and ready for school. So I went out and bought a coffee maker that you can set to brew at a certain set time. One night I was exhausted from running around all day. I was getting ready to go to bed and set up my coffee maker to start brewing at 6 in the morning and then I went to bed. Little did I realize I had forgotten to put the coffee pot back in the machine. I woke up the next day to the smell of burnt coffee and one hot mess all over my counter and floor.
The lesson?: Don't mess with hot messy things when you are over tired.
In Real Life: So today (8/21/13) I was walking out of the gym to go to my car. I walk up to my car and press the unlock button on my keys. I'm noticing that my car is SUPER dirty and reprimand myself for letting it get this way without noticing. I open the door and just stand there looking in for a while. The interior looked different from what I last remembered. After 30 seconds of standing there I look up and two cars down is MY car. The car I had just opened was some random stranger's unlocked car.
The lesson?: Just because it looks like your car and is unlocked, doesn't mean it's yours.
In Real Life: I was on the PC when my dad barged into my room and released three giant crickets. They immediately hopped below my chair and as I cried, my dad laughed at me.
The lesson?: Fathers are evil.
On Neopets on KeyQuest: So this persons internet went out, and they mailed me asking for a rematch. After I had one, I got a rant mail about how I hacked the system supposedly, and that I was a loser.
In Real Life: My friend and I are walking into the high school. As usual we were exhausted. I had had one strap of my book bag on a shoulder and the other hanging off. She looked over, made a surprised look and face palmed. I asked her what happened, and she said, "I am too tired I thought the strap of your bag was invisible.
The lesson?: Everyone, get a good amount of sleep.
None yet! =(
In Real Life: My friend's birthday was at the end of February and I said I would give her some money for her birthday, as I didn't know what else to get her. It's now July and I didn't remember it until now.
The lesson?: Don't forget birthday presents.
On Neopets on the Pound Chat: I was trading and got an amazing offer (BD Eventide Draik) on my very aged Uni 2 minutes AFTER rushing a trade and accepting a different offer.
The lesson?: Don't rush through a trade - it's okay to consider
In Real Life: I was at this concert last year at the rodeo, and it was my favorite group playing. We had really nice seats;right above the tunnel that they exit after the concert. Once they were done and started exiting, I saw a group of girls run over and look through into the tunnel and stick their hands in. After I realised what they were doing, I ran up and nose dived into the crowd and stuck my hand in the tunnel. I ended up getting my hand kissed and signed, but what I didn't know is that while I was diving into that crowd, I pushed this one girl into one of the poles blocking us from the tunnel, and she broke her nose and an ambulence had to be called.
The lesson?: Don't fangirl to much, cause security is very mean.
In Real Life: I was in science class, and it was a few minutes before we were dismissed. My dad called me while we were all in class sitting and our teacher was talking. I had forgotten to silence my phone, and it started ringing the angry birds theme song.
The lesson?: If your phone is going to ring in class, make sure it isn't an embarrassing ringtone.
On Neopets on a NC Board with a little bit of Target: While looking for a Phantom of the BG, I was NM'd by another user that she'd trade her BG for 40 GBCs. So what do I do? I run to Target and drain a whopping $125 for enough NC cards for enough GBCs for the BG, only to turn out that I only needed 3/5.
The lesson?: Think before you overstock.
In Real Life: So we just got one of those huge blow up pools, and my brother was super exited, so i thought i would suprise him and put it up while hes at school.... i was going to be like bob the builder o3o, so i start pouring the water in with the hose, it should take 6 hours or so to feel up, well 3 hours in, i go outside to check on it....turns out i never closed the plug D: and i ended up flooding the backyard....:/
The lesson?: Not everyone can be like bob the builder D: i should have double checked everything lol
In Real Life: So the summer after junior year, my friend threw this party to celebrate all of us surviving the most difficult year of high school. His house is on the mountains, so the layout is all weird and it's like, built ALONG the mountain. He has a huge pool on the lower level of his backyard... like way lower... there's a giant cliff pretty much. After watching "Struck By Lightning", all of us decided to go into his yard again (the patio this time), and watch the stunning city lights. Being the forgetful and careless girl I am, I moved forward too much, stepping off the cliff, screaming until I landed in the pool beneath.
The lesson?: Don't go towards the light. Very bad idea.
In Real Life: I was climbing up the stairs to get to my next class and I feel down them all the way and then I started to walk on all 4s while picking up my stuff. I didnt even realize I was doing it. So awkward and embarrassing.
The lesson?: Dont trust anyone. Not even the stairs.
