10 Summer Vacation Fails: You Wouldn’t Wish These to Happen to You

We all wait for the summer season thinking and planning how we can make the most out of it, either with your family or friends. No doubt, vacations are meant to be for relaxation and having great fun. However, there are those times when summer vacations turn hilariously and horribly wrong!

So, here are the 10 summer vacation fails that you would not wish to happen to you!


1. “It’s all fun in games unless someone calls the cops.”


2. ‘Uhm, Hello? I’m just here up top’

3. ‘Hey…!’ Oops, wrong dad.


4. “It’s just there, somewhere nearby..”

5.  Now, who’s the real star?


6. Too much alcohol… Too much sentiments.

7. Ouch.


8. “Give me some candy!”

9. “I can see what you’re saying!”

10. “The Best Invitation ‘Ever’ Award goes to…”



Fails Not Limited to Summer and Not Funny at All

Looking around you, you would realize that there are fails not limited to summer and not funny at all. These are the daily realities of the disadvantaged people living among us. They are the disabled, the illiterate, the welfare dependent, persons with past criminal records, and others who are burdened with personal disadvantages that prevent them from having gainful employment and living a poverty-free life.

You can help turn their lives around with a simple act of charity. Donate a car or a truck or any other type of vehicle to us at Goodwill Car Donations, and we will turn that vehicle into a precious resource to provide life-transforming assistance to these individuals.

We sell through auction all vehicles donated to us and use the proceeds to support the critical community-based programs of the Goodwill nonprofits in your area that cater to underprivileged citizens. The programs provide our beneficiaries with such services as skills and job training, career development and placement, scholarships, youth employment, livelihood, disability benefits support, and other community-building support projects.

Those who enroll in our job training programs learn new skills adaptable to their specific condition, enabling them to secure stable and decent jobs. As such, they become financially independent and able to take care of themselves and their family.

What makes our car donation program truly special is that the benefits go both ways—to the beneficiaries and the donors as well! For your charitable contribution, you’ll get great rewards, including maximum tax deductions based on the selling price of your donated vehicles.
