Humorous GIFs of the Little Annoyances in Everyday Life

If you’ve ever had one of those days where nothing seems to be going right and there’s an endless supply of awkward moments, you’ll easily relate to the works of illustrator Lisette Berndt who is better known under the moniker Thoka Maer. Her ongoing series of gifs entitled It’s No Biggie features those tiny moments in any person’s day that makes you feel like the world is playing one big prank on you.

What can feel incredibly frustrating in real life is surprisingly humorous when watching others go through it. Although, I’ve got to admit, I found myself staring at some of these gifs for far too long, hoping for a different outcome. Why won’t the mother just turn around while the UFO is still in the air?!
