Little Childhood Moments That Sent You Off The Deep End

They may have seemed insignificant, but they were soul-crushing.

1. Whenever this thing of beauty got rolled into your classroom, only for you to be disappointed to learn that it's actually for the next period:

"WHY TEASE ME LIKE THAT?!"

2. Whenever the "No tears!" guarantee was put to the test and you were temporally blinded in the shower:

3. Walking past the toy store with your parents after being promised you'd be able to go in:

"You promised me we would go into the toy store if we had time!!! WE HAD TIME!" —you pouting in the backseat of the car

4. Getting ready to get your art on, only to discover that all the markers were linty and dried out:

"And even the smell is gone, just like my art career." =(

5. Whenever you saved your Push Pop for later, only to find it covered in ants:

"WHAT THE HELL?! WHY IS THE CAP NOT DOING ITS JOB AND PROTECTING THE SUGARY GOODNESS?!"

6. Having the batteries die on your Game Boy just as your were about to beat a level:

"GD, why does my Game Boy keep preventing me from beating The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening?"

7. Or worse yet, having someone trip on and pull out the cord to the controller just as you were about to beat a level:

And sometimes also pulling the entire console with it!

8. When all your friends could see the hidden image and you couldn't:

"Oh yeah, I totally see the dragon...oh, it's a car?! Yeah, I totally see the car too!"

9. Whenever you accidentally got a Happy Meal that was missing the toy:

"MOM, TURN THE CAR AROUND NOW!!! MY HAPPY MEAL IS MISSING THE TOY!!!"

10. Whenever you got excited and ordered a super-cool new product only to find out it was NOT as awesome as it promised to be:

"I waited six weeks for this As Seen on TV product to come and it all it does is yank my hair out in clumps!"

11. When you were jamming along to your favorite CD only to have it skip all over the place, and then realizing why:

12. The moment when you realize that your friend's or crush's parent answered their home phone -- after you specifically discussed what time you were going call:

"No sir, I didn't realize what time it was...yes, I know it's a school night."

13. Having no choice but to use one of the erasers from your collection and having it just smear everything into a gray blur.

"Why can't this eraser erase?! Now I have both ruined my assignment and a pretty eraser."

14. When you thought you got your brown-paper-bag book cover to fit perfectly snug, but in fact it was on so tight that it ripped:

The price of trying to achieve perfection.

15. Whenever you went to watch your favorite movie and realized that it was just the empty case, and that the movie wasn't in the VCR either:

"OMG, how did the video just disappear like that?"

16. Whenever you sharpened your pencil and this happened:

Even if you rotated your pencil.

17. And finally, whenever this happened. SEVERAL. NIGHTS. IN. A. ROW.

And you seriously began to question whether your Furby was possessed by a demon.
