Life’s not fair and that’s a fact. But to some people life is even more than unfair. It’s downright cruel! Literally any time you’re feeling happy, or positive, or content, or even just okay, life is there to punch you in the throat. Well, not literally, but you know what I mean. Someone once said, “There’s no such thing as luck. Luck is where preparation meets opportunity.” And maybe they’re right. Or half-right. Maybe there is no such thing as good luck. But there is definitely bad luck, as proven by this list compiled by Diply.

14. When you can’t be bothered
