The Luckiest People of All Time
This little girl is definitively the big winner of the day! She can exchange that enormous bunch of tickets for a sweet prize at the arcade. Or rather, for several sweet prizes, because she really has a lot of tickets! We never seen that many tickets before.
And we bet she doesn’t either. We can tell by her expression that she’s totally stoked about it, but given her pretty young age, it is doubtful that she fully understands the extent of her gain! Her parents must be happy, though!
Another Reddit user posted this photograph and wrote, “The fuzz on my sock looks like a flamingo.” This snap is mundane yet fascinating at the same time.
We wish we could hug that little flamingo, but it would probably disintegrate in our arms.
Someone shared this photograph on Reddit and wrote, “My black cat looks like my white cat’s shadow.” We had to do a double-take on this one.
It really does look like a shadow!
Not An Inch To Spare
Talk about a tight squeeze! This semi-truck barely cleared the height restrictions in this tunnel. The driver must have known its height very precisely because he would never have dared to venture into this tunnel!
One simple minor bump in the road and everything would come to a screeching, abrupt halt. Yikes! Driving by this truck must be incredibly scary. If we were the driver of the truck, we would be a nervous, and if we were the driver of the car, we would try to distance ourselves as much as possible from the truck!
This kid probably had no idea how blessed he was when the man sitting next to him sprang into action.He blocked that bat like a champ and saved a little boy from a trip to the ER. Not to mention the years of therapy that child would’ve needed before ever going to a ballgame again.
This lady is so lucky that a shark just took a little nibble off her back and didn’t chomp down.
This could have been so much worse. Plus, she’s going to have one tough-looking scar!
A construction worker counted his lucky stars when a hardhat saved his life.
He could’ve had more than a minor bump on his noggin had he not worn it. “Safety First” is a thing for a reason.
A Balancing Act
This image is both lucky and unlucky at the same time. This situation is certainly lucky for the person who closed the cabinet before the dishes fell out and create a horrible mess. They certainly saved themselves a lot of damage!
But yet, these dishes now placed in a very precarious way in the cupboard will certainly cause a huge headache to whoever comes along and opens that door next. We don’t know how they will manage not to break anything… It seems impossible.
This person probably had no idea that they literally parked in the perfect parking spot when they arrived.
That is until that tree crashed down and just missed slamming right into their vehicle. This feels fortuitous if you ask us!
This photo found its way to Reddit with the caption, “Found these 110(?) year old Crayolas in the back of a family secretary desk. The pack still has the crayons.” That’s practically a historical artifact.
They need to contact Crayola and get a fortune for this find!
Surprise Double Scoop
Some days are better than others. That’s life, and we have to deal with it the best we can. Good days would be, for example, those containing an ice cream treat. But this person definitely doubled their luck when they unwrapped their ice cream treat.
They discovered two ice cream scoops for the price of one, thanks to a happy packaging mistake. Yum! Two ice cream treats make for an even better day than one! It is impossible to spoil the day after that. And now, we need some ice cream treat, too!
Lucky To Be Alive
Whatever the story is in this picture, the driver was fortunate to walk away from it.
Had the aluminum siding crashed through the windshield at a different angle, it might not have been such a happy ending.
Here’s another example of a driver who had a near-death experience.
Nothing like a huge slaw blade slicing into the hood of your car to make you appreciate life. This was a close call.
Here is a really happy story. A woman once lost a ring in her backyard, without being able to find it. But years later, the new owners of the house found the ring attached to a carrot while they were gardening and returned it to the rightful owner.
That’s one expensive carrot they found! And these new owners are some of the most honest people we’ve heard of. Many would have kept the ring for themselves, or sold it, rather than returning it to its owner! How sweet of them!
There is literally a one-in-a-million chance that this key chain would have saved these keys from falling through a grate, saving them from uncertain doom. Under normal circumstances, the keys would have fallen off and been lost.
That’s why we absolutely can’t blame this person for celebrating this happy and lucky moment with a photo. We definitely would have done the same thing if it had happened to us! After all, such luck is hard to believe!
Here is a pretty cheerful story. A gentleman bought a set of chest of drawers at an estate sale. So far, nothing more normal than that, you will say, and you would be right. It’s actually quite common to buy that kind of furniture at an estate sale.
What is less common and far more interesting, however, is that when the man opened the bottom drawer of his new dresser after purchasing it, he stumbled upon a hidden treasure. It is as if he was paid to buy this furniture!
So, if a massive boulder is going to roll through your property, you could only pray that your home would come out undamaged.
The home-owners must have let out a huge sigh of relief that their house was still standing.
If you’re a fan of Cheetos puffs, then you know really well how rare of a find this giant Cheetos is. Generally, Cheetos are not so long, quite the contrary! They are usually so small that you can almost eat it in one bite!
But this Cheetos in particular is unbelievably long. And look at all the perfect yummy cheesiness. It’s not like some parts have been forgotten and lack cheese. That’s like eating 6 puffs in one! It can’t get better than that. That’s an awesome snack!
A Happy Discovery
Imagine really craving to eat a pizza, and then, being so lucky that you discover an extra frozen pizza in the packaging you bought at the store. 4 frozen pizzas instead of 3, and for the same price! Now, that’s a bargain we’d like to get!
In our humble opinion, a pizza situation doesn’t get much better than that, really. What’s better than more pizza? There is never enough pizza when you really want to eat some. Bonus pizza for everyone! Who want some?
Beat The Odds
Sometimes things don’t go as planned, and it doesn’t always end well. However, sometimes all the odds are beaten, to everyone’s delight! The passengers aboard the US Airways jet on January 15, 2009 could all tell you about the incredible luck that smiled on them that day, when a flock of birds knocked out both of the plane’s engines.
That day, when everyone on board the plane thought it was the end, Captain Sully Sullenberger amazed everyone by landing the plane in the frozen waters of the Hudson River off Manhattan Island in New York. Thanks to him, all 150 passengers of the plane survived!
The Biggest Winner
This has got to be one of the absolute luckiest lottery players of all time. Every single scratch-off presented a winning number. Seriously, what are the odds? It seems almost impossible, it’s too good to be true. Can you believe it?
If that person was smart enough, they would spend their earning on more tickets. Why not push their luck? They seem to have a lot of it, after all! They could also be wise and not take the risk of losing it, but that’s boring.
Like A Glove
Here we have another case of trees falling in just the right place.
All three vehicles were lucky to come out unscathed, but the owner of the white automobile used all of their good luck for the rest of the year.
The Perfect Avocado
Sometimes nature has a way of winking at you, and it feels great when it happens. This person shared their good fortune of opening up an avocado without a pit, which means a lot more fruit to eat! It’s impossible to be hungry after that!
This is a pretty rare occurrence, though. We had never seen that kind of avocado without a pit before, so we think it’s a sign of good luck. We would love to come across such an avocado! Have you seen one before or you’re just like us?
Lucky Little Guy
How adorable is this happy little guy celebrating meeting Tinker Bell in real life? He seems to be having the time of his life, which is probably the case! He has surely seen all the movies with Tinkerbell many, many times!
This photo is living proof that Disney World really is the happiest place on earth, for both children and adults. What could be more satisfying than to see a child so happy? He must have been the highlight of Tinker Bell’s day, too!
5 Leaf Clover
If everyone agrees to say that finding a four-leaf clover is lucky, then naturally, finding a five-leaf clover must be considered “next-level” good luck. Four-leaf clovers are already so hard to find, imagine a five-leaf one!
This person will probably have good fortune showered upon them for the rest of their days. How lucky! But with all the luck this person will have, will those around them be. at least, a little lucky too? Let’s hope for them.
It really doesn’t get much better than when every checkout lane is open at the grocery store. It’s pretty rare that this happens, isn’t it? Every time we go there, at least one cash register is closed, even if there are a ton of customers waiting.
In fact, this is such a rare event at the grocery store that this person considered it worthwhile to take a moment to celebrate their good fortune and take a picture. It’s oddly satisfying to look at. No waiting at the grocery store!
Almost Got The Ax
This person’s heart probably stopped when an ax flew off the truck driving in front of them and crashed through the windshield.
Luckily, the ax fell into the dashboard, sparring them from a gruesome scene. Talk about a close call!
The Luckiest Little Girl
What child doesn’t dream of crawling into a claw machine to grab any stuffed animal they want? This is a much easier method than trying to grab the coveted one with the tongs, and it’s much less disappointing, because it’s not uncommon for people to miss their shot and leave empty-handed.
This little girl’s dreams definitely came true that day, and by the looks of it, that green plush with a blue hat totally went home with her. She left with the stuffed animal she desired the most. She must have found her day very satisfying!
A Near Miss
This car narrowly escaped being crushed by a fallen tree. It’s amazing how the branches curved in such a way to create the perfect shape around the vehicle.
Hooray for Mother Nature!
This person learned first-hand how dangerous it can be to drive on icy roads. They had a very close call when they almost crashed into an embankment.Luckily, only one tire went over the edge before the vehicle came to a stop.
A Near Hit
This driver came horribly close to popping their tire while parking their car in that parking lot that day. But when we say close, we mean VERY close! We can’t imagine their relief when they realized how lucky they were.
If they had parked just a few tiny inches to the right, they would have driven right over that protruding pole. Even with the help of a rear view camera, the protruding pole would probably not have been visible. Then, a beautiful day would have quickly become unpleasant. Phew!
It’s not every day that a missile crashes into a truck.
This person sure got lucky when it just grazed the vehicle instead of blowing it up.
The Longest Curly Fry
This person totally wins the award for discovering the longest curly fry in history. Not only is thy fry very long, but it is also perfectly curled from the top to the bottom! It’s incredible! There must be a Guinness record for that, isn’t it?
That’s really impressive, and it also looks absolutely delicious. And now, just like that, we’re craving curly fries. Excuse us while we run to Arby’s real quick, all this just gave us an appetite! Unfortunately, we will never find a fry that awesome there.
This is another image that is both lucky and unlucky.
The minivan was spared from this fallen pole, but the red car wasn’t so lucky.
A Tight Squeeze
Yet another car missed being crushed by a tree because fate intervened.
Who would’ve thought that the trunk would be at the right angle to fall perfectly behind that automobile?
We don’t blame those people in the photo for marveling at the driver’s good luck.
That sign just missed turning that car into a pancake.
The Biggest Strawberry
This person definitely stumbled upon one of the biggest strawberries in the world when they bought this strawberry box. It is quite enormous! We don’t know about you, but we have never seen such a huge strawberry.
Hopefully, though, all of the strawberries in their basket weren’t the size of a hand like this particular one, otherwise it must have emptied pretty quickly! “But I only ate 3 strawberries, and now there are no more!” How sad it would be.
An Egg In An Egg
This person cooked a boiled egg, and when they cut it, they found a second egg right in the middle of it. And not just a piece of a second egg, but a complete one, with the shell! How can this even be possible? It’s hard to understand how this could happen.
We have several questions about this besides looking for an explanation to the surprising situation. Among others, of course, one can’t help but wonder if this second egg was also well cooked… or maybe it would make a good soft-boiled egg!
Million Dollar Quartz
Without suspecting it in the least, this man made a surprising and priceless discovery in Arkansas. This quartz is absolutely huge! It must have taken him a long time to get it out of there! He probably even needed help!
According to some experts, this heap of quartz would be worth about 4 million dollars. That is a lot of money! One wonders if he was able to keep this money for himself, or at least a certain amount. He is the one who found it, after all!
Would you like a banana to complement your morning peanut butter toast for your breakfast? Well, this time, maybe you’ll need twice as much toast to complement this double banana. What a huge breakfast it would be!
One thing is for sure, though, this banana gave the person who ate it all the fiber and potassium they needed in their day, and maybe even more! No need to eat another fruit during your day after eating that banana.
There’s no better surprise than opening a bag of chips just to find a really huge one in it. In fact, we are rather used to the opposite, don’t you think? How many time did you find chips broken into small pieces and had trouble finding even one whole one?
In any case, one thing is absolutely sure: to those who would feel the need to tell this lady that she tends to eat too many chips, this time, she will be able to say that she was reasonable; she only ate one Funyuns! It’s hard to top that.
Everyone knows that coupons are really awesome because they usually save you at least a small amount of money. But real couponers know that impressive savings can be made when these coupons are used properly.
But to be honest, never before has a coupon given you so many Snickers for only $29, we’re sure of that! We strongly hope that this buyer likes Snickers, though. But more importantly, we hope that he won’t eat them all himself!
A person posted these pics on Reddit along with the caption, “I bought some suspiciously perfect bananas yesterday.” Those really are some beautiful bananas.
We can’t help but wonder if they tasted as good as they looked? Knowing this guy’s luck, they were probably delicious!
This photo was seen on Reddit with the caption, “Three girls in the same row, wearing the same color sweater, with the same color hair.” Wow! That’s not something you see every day.
It’s actually kind of creepy if you ask us.
Someone shared this cool photo on Reddit and wrote, “This red only rainbow I saw at midnight in Finland.” Is this good luck? It could be taken as a sinister sign.
We’d hate to see what kind of leprechaun might be found at the bottom of a red rainbow!
Another Reddit member posted this snap along with the caption, “The sun shining through my fish tank aligned perfectly on each knob.” Our imagination is running wild with this one.
It looks like some sort of color-coded spell that could open a portal to an alternate universe.
A person shared this photograph on Reddit and wrote, “Found an edge piece in my bag of Goldfish.” Does anybody else think this looks like the beginnings of a puzzle?
Either way, it’s totally a fortunate discovery.
This gentleman, Steve Flaig, was in search of his birth mother when he had a lucky break at work.
According to the Express, Flaig discovered his mom was working for the same company when his boss recognized her name.
Perfectly Timed Flyby
This person had a huge stroke of luck when a seagull flew in front of the traffic camera and blocked their license plate number. How lucky was that?
That bird probably saved this person from getting a speeding ticket!
Someone shared this photo on social media and wrote, “I found a pepper inside… a pepper!” Mother Nature smiled upon this person.
Their spaghetti just got a lot yummier!
There is nothing worse than getting a flat tire from driving over a screw. It’s amazing that this screw fits snugly into the tire tread.
This person used up all of their good luck for the rest of their life!
Watermelon is so refreshing on a hot day, but who wants to deal with all those seeds?
Someone shared this pic of a watermelon that had no seeds when they cut it open. That looks so tasty!
There are some days when things just go the right way. A person shared this pic of their amazing stroke of luck.
They wrote the caption, “I bought a drink from a vending machine and the quarter dollar came free.” Score!
Apple Tree Surprise
A Reddit user posted this photograph and said, “This tree in my neighborhood that has 1 branch of an apple tree and the rest is a normal tree.” Apparently, this is more than just good luck.
This occurrence is called grafting. Someone fused that apple branch, and it became part of the other tree. This concludes our dendrology lesson of the day. Also, dendrology means the study of trees. Don’t you feel smart?
Too Close For Comfort
Nothing like almost cutting the tip of your fingers off with a saw to make you appreciate your hand.
This person was very close to having the worst day ever. Hooray for work gloves!
The Luckiest Squirrel
This cute little fella escaped a brutal death when someone cut his home down with a chainsaw. He must have had a terrible fear! Just thinking about the roof of my house ripping off all of a sudden is pretty frightening.
Luckily, he lived on the bottom floor of the tree, so he’s all safe and sound. He actually looks thankful to be alive, don’t you think? Phew! More fear than harm! I will never look at the semi-basement the same way again!
A Close Call
How amazing is it that a streetlight fell in just the right place to spare this car?
It couldn’t have lined up more perfectly. The owner was super lucky in this case.
This person’s phone almost went for a swim until fate intervened. What are the odds that the phone landed in the exact spot, at this perfect angle, in the toilet bowl to keep it dry? Like, one would tend to say almost none.
The owner escaped witnessing all of their contacts literally go down the drain, plus the fear that a bowl of rice wouldn’t be enough to save his phone! We are jealous that we never had this chance… He just saved a lot of trouble and money.
Almost Nailed It
This person used up all of their luck for a lifetime when they narrowly missed stepping directly onto a rusty nail.
If they had stomped less than an inch further to the right, they would have been in a world of pain. Not to mention, a tetanus shot would have been in their near future.
One Lucky Break
The owner of this vehicle must have been so relieved that this tree didn’t crash into their car.
It’s astounding to see just how lucky they were in this case. That tree could have totaled their automobile.
The Best Seat
When you take a plane, if you are tall enough, there is always a lack of leg room, which can be really annoying, especially during a long flight. After a while, you don’t know how to sit to be comfortable, and sometimes there are still hours left to the flight!
But this man managed to get the perfect seat for his height. Or, in fact, the best seat overall, because let’s face it, there is always a lack of space on a plane, no matter your height. We didn’t even know that such seats existed! Did you?
On The Edge
What are the chances that this car would come to a screeching halt before driving over the edge?
This was a real balancing act and the driver barely escaped falling to their death.
Jackpot Vending Machine
There are just some days when everything seems to be going your way and whoever came upon this vending machine was having the best day ever. It’s one thing to get a double delivery of snacks from a machine, but this luck is next level.
What are the odds that every single package would have fallen off the shelf and into the machine like that? Look at all those yummy treats waiting to be grabbed. We’ll take some Ruffles, Lays, Doritos, and Sunchips, please.
At first glance, this pic of an accident doesn’t look that bad. Some poor driver flew off the road, and their white truck landed in a ditch. Sure, this would be scary, but it appears like no one was hurt, and he is certainly not the first to whom such a thing happens.
A quick zoom-out gives a bigger picture, though, and it shows a potentially dire situation. Not only did this person skid into a ditch, but they narrowly missed driving off a cliff. Their guardian angel was looking out for them.
The ocean can be a scary place for humans. After all, there’s an entire ecosystem under the water that we’re just not a part of. All sorts of deadly creatures swim around and could sneak up on you at any moment.
This snorkeler had a close call with a stingray, but was able to duck down at just the right moment. It may look like she’s playing a game of underwater limbo with that thing, but she was really lucky to get out of its path.
If you’ve ever been to a Chinese restaurant, then you know the best part of the meal is definitely opening your fortune cookie at the end. That is unless you get a bad fortune. Then it surely is the worst part of the meal.
This diner opened a horrible fortune with their first cookie, but they quickly rebounded when a second fortune negated the bad one. Phew! That was a pretty close call. This is what we like to call good old-fashioned luck!
The Luckiest Charm
Ask any kid and they’ll tell you that the yummiest part of eating Lucky Charms cereal is eating the fruity marshmallow treats. You will either bite into a heart, star, horseshoe, clover, blue moon, hourglass, rainbow, or a red balloon.
This person found the luckiest charm of all when they discovered a huge rainbow treat in their cereal bowl. We’d love to slide down that thing into a lake of milk. No wonder the tagline is “They’re magically delicious.”
There are moments in life when you somehow avoid a catastrophe. The driver of this Jeep had an extremely close call with a fallen tree. It appears that they ran over the tree and the trunk busted in through the floorboard.
Thank goodness, though, they stopped at the perfect time because only a few centimeters more and that tree trunk was going right for their crotch! They must have used up a lifetime of luck in one moment because this could have ended badly.
Eating a tangerine can be so satisfying. They’re sweet. They’re juicy. Let’s be honest, they’re like little pockets of love. So, we don’t blame this person at all for taking a moment to share their good fortune with the Internet.
They opened up their tangerine to discover another tiny one nestled inside the center. Just another chance to savor the sweet flavor of a tangerine. We’re feeling kind of jealous and a bit hungry. That small tangerine is so cute!
One Big Banana
Do you like eating bananas? Of course, you do! They’re full of potassium and are great for a quick snack. A person took to social media to share the biggest banana on the planet. That thing can’t actually be real, can it?
We’re going to be honest with you, here. That banana can’t be trusted. It looks more like a weapon than a piece of fruit, don’t you think? No one should eat that thing. We suspect that it was genetically modified for a giant to eat.
A Near Miss
Driving in the snow can be scary and dangerous. One minute you’re driving down the road, and the next you swerve into an embankment without being able to do anything about it. That’s what appeared to happen to this unfortunate driver.
Yet, they got very lucky on this particular day because they skid off the road and veered just the right way to avoid slamming into a fire hydrant. They literally missed that thing by an inch! That was way too close for comfort.
The Longest French Fry
French Fry lovers rejoice! This person had the best luck of anyone ever and discovered a gigantic fry in her bag of frozen spuds. That thing is glorious and should be celebrated with its own national holiday!
Seriously though, how come something as amazing as this doesn’t happen to us? We’d fry up that thing so fast and smother it in ketchup. Is anyone else hungry? Please excuse us while we go eat some french fries.
Too Close For Comfort
This person’s life must have flashed before their eyes, or at least the life of their baby toe. A knife fell on the floor and narrowly missed slicing their foot. We can’t help but wonder how they got into this situation in the first place?
Is this person a professional knife thrower? Do they have a poltergeist in their kitchen that has it out for them? More than likely, the knife slipped while they were chopping vegetables, but we like our crazy theories better.
Large Lay’s Potato Chip
Either the person holding this potato chip is tiny or this particular chip is humongous. Sometimes you luck out when you’re eating a snack and discover something really cool and rare waiting for you in the bag.
This lucky snacker reached into their bag of Lay’s potato chips and pulled out a massive chip. Who do we need to contact about making all Lay’s potato chips this big? This makes all the other chips look small and dumb.
Whoever dropped these keys in the elevator should definitely thank their lucky stars. They avoided a really annoying situation when the set of keys landed just the right way to avoid falling into the elevator shaft.
Can you imagine what a pain it would be to retrieve them if they had slipped down there? That looks like a long and dark void to us. Totally unreachable. They may have never seen those things again. That is one lucky soul right there.
Once In A Lifetime
Anybody who has enjoyed a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup knows that it’s nearly impossible to remove the candy from the wrapper without leaving a dab of chocolate behind. That’s what makes this photo seem so special.
The candy gods smiled upon this person because they successfully removed all four peanut butter cups without leaving a smear on the wrapper. They should defiantly play the lottery because this may never happen again in their lifetime.
A person shared this incredibly scary moment on social media and said that if they had walked up the parking deck a second earlier, that runway car would have landed on their head! Yikes! That is really terrifying.
They are so lucky that they dodged that tragedy. Something tells us that they may not have walked away from an accident of that magnitude. It’s pretty hard to come back from a car falling on top of you, after all. Phew!
That’s Not Coffee
Many people like to start their day with a warm cup of coffee. It’s a great way to kick start your morning, but someone almost made a huge mistake. They accidentally put a Ranch dressing packet into the coffee maker instead of a coffee pod.
Can you imagine how nasty it would’ve been to take a sip of warm Ranch dressing? Yuck. And after that, you have to clean the whole machine! They got lucky and discovered the mix-up before it was late. That would have been quite the rude awakening!
A cat owner posted this pic of their black cat napping on the stovetop, along with the caption, “Almost set my cat on fire.” That kitty just used up one of its nine lives because its owner stopped before turning on the burner.
This could have been an extremely tragic situation. Can you imagine how much therapy would cost to help this person overcome the fact that they accidentally cooked their cat? We’d put a white collar on the kitty, just to be safe.
It’s a good thing that someone had the presence of mind to label the thermometer that they used to check their dog’s temp the old-fashioned way. It’s even better that this person took a moment to read the label, too.
That would have been pretty awful to stick that thing in your mouth to take your temperature, only to discover it had previously been in an unpleasant place. You’d not only be sick from a fever at that point. So gross! We don’t even dare to imagine the taste.
A Doozy Of A Doughnut
Who loves doughnuts as much as we do? Everyone better raise their hand because doughnuts are just about the yummiest treat out there. That means the person who shared a massive doughnut on social media is a winner in our eyes.
How exactly did this event take place? Did they order a huge doughnut at the bakery or was it a surprise? Regardless, they were probably pretty popular on the day they brought this impressive treat into the office.
Thank goodness this person took safety into their own hands and wore a pair of safety goggles while they worked. They had a very close call with a projectile that would have caused serious injury to their right eye if it weren’t for the glasses.
Just looking at this image makes us feel a bit woozy. We can’t even imagine the relief this guy felt when he realized just how close he was to danger. This is just one example of the reason personal safety gear is so important on the job.
