Sometimes, when you're having a bad day, it can be helpful to keep in mind that there is almost always someone, somewhere in the world who is far worse off than you.
It's quite a morbid concept really, but it's true. When you're having a particularly rough time of things, knowing that there are other people out there doing it even worse, somehow has a comforting effect.
Now, some may even go as far as saying that witnessing another person's misfortune brings them pleasure (not me of course). In fact, Germans even have a word for this. It's 'schadenfreude'.
Well, just in case you're having a really bad day and you need some schadenfreude of your own, we've got you covered with 40 photos of people having a way worse day than you below.
So, scroll down, enjoy, and feel free to comment with your own stories of your worst days for others in need!
