20+ Cases Where Expectation and Reality Are As Different As Heaven and Earth

Our assumptions can lead to significant stress when they don’t match our expectations. It’s better to not take it too seriously and laugh it off, when you have the chance. A huge treat for a tiny dog, a plastic ring instead of a silver and amethyst one, or a strawberry cheesecake ice cream with no strawberries, these are some good examples that show reality has a salty sense of humor.

Bright Side truly appreciates all the internet users from this compilation who had their expectations smashed, but instead of getting angry, they decided to share their deceptions and give us a good reason to smile.
