Let me explain. Epicfailteering is when you keep on accumulating a large amount of small (or not so small) fails in one day, kind of the negative equivalent of accomplishteering. So, what have I been doing today?


This morning I missed the bus by one minute and had to wait 30 minutes for the next one. I forgot my sunglasses because it was super-cloudy and raining, but then it was sunny during the lunch break and when I went home and I really wished I had my sunglasses. Speaking of when I went home, I totally forgot to take the bus schedule into account when shutting down my laptop. Then I facepalmed that I couldn’t make the bus anymore, and I left and walked to my bike... Which wasn’t there because I was there by bus, so now I had to take a detour to the bus stop so I also missed the bus that would have taken me home with a less optimal route and I had to wait 20 minutes for the bus. Finally, I had forgotten to connect my tablet to WiFi during the day, so that Duolingo couldn’t download new lessons and I had nothing to do on my ride home.

Does any of this matter in the grand scheme of things? Well, no. Life just goes on and I’ll forget about all this ever happening. But it’s still some impressive epicfailteering.
