New Year’s Eve is annoyingly high on the list of over-publicized holidays. All those times when we fantasized about spending money to enter one of the prestigious events or exchanging passionate kisses with our loved ones in a penthouse beneath the starry night sky? Sadly, not everyone has a good time because life is not a movie. Check out these incredibly awful New Year’s Eve stories.
The One That Got Away
Some people find the kiss that occurs at the stroke of midnight on the memorable New Year’s Eve to be pretty unique and wants to share it with someone similarly wonderful. This is also an excellent opportunity to tell the other individual that you like them (or don’t!)
The guy’s best friend had different plans for the girl who had a thing for him and was certain he would be her midnight kiss. They both noticed how awkward it was as he pressed a kiss on the female.
Ed Sheeran Songs
On New Year’s Eve, people usually gather to party. Many people also use this time to loosen up and let the alcohol control them. What happens next is a string of inebriated errors that they will undoubtedly rue the next morning.
We’re not sure if this man later regretted sending his “casual fling” a number of texts in which he expressed his love for her and how he couldn’t stop thinking of her when he heard Ed Sheeran songs. Realizing what he had done upon awakening must have been difficult. Sheeran is undoubtedly the king of love songs, though.
My Name Isn’t Anna
We’re not here to give relationship advice, but we do advise against having high expectations for someone you’re just “semi-seeing,” as you can wind up with a situation similar to the one in this poster. This Redditor attended a New Year’s Eve performance where her close buddy was performing with his band in the hopes of surprising him.
Don’t get excited just yet as he called a girl named Anna on stage, and the Redditor’s name isn’t Anna.
The Sign Won
Being brave is admirable, but doing something dangerously excessively to demonstrate your bravery is just stupid. How many times have we witnessed somebody attempting to prove themselves who ultimately had to learn a lesson the hard way? For those kinds of entertaining yet agonizing fails, simply visit YouTube.
On that topic, the friend of the author of this essay broke his foot while attempting to dropkick a sign. The bright side is that he might never attempt something like that again while he is still alive.
Dumped and Done
Exactly the opposite of what we mentioned earlier. We can assure you that one man’s New Year’s Eve was among the worst on the list because it was so awful. You anticipate spending the evening dancing, celebrating, and having fun with your pals.
You don’t anticipate your girlfriend breaking up with you right away once you arrive at her place to take her out for the evening. It makes perfect sense that he chooses to forget about this evening.
Overexcitement Killed the Cat
Few things are as upsetting as suffering an accident just before a significant event you were eager to attend. All plans are abandoned because our health should always come first. One Redditor in particular planned to go shopping with some of their buddies.
Up until they stumbled on the way out of their flat and landed directly on their tailbone, everything was going according to plan. Naturally, there was some damage, and they spent the following three days in bed. What a waste of New Year’s Eve.
This isn’t the only instance on the list where a person who had their heart set on someone was spurned in favor of another suitor. He made the decision to spend New Year’s Eve at a ski resort with his buddies and his crush when he was still a college student.
Unfortunately, the outcome wasn’t what he had hoped for. These are the stories that hurt the most no matter how much time passes. We can only hope that this Reddit user has since discovered both his New Year’s kiss and his soul mate.
What a Waste
Even if the man you want is someone who doesn’t deserve you, the heart wants what it wants. This hapless Brooklynite was eagerly anticipating her crush’s New Year’s Eve invitation.
He finally did, but he wasn’t happy about it. She had paid $350 for a “sure-shot” kiss, but when she got there, she saw him making out with someone else. Furious, she resorted to a night of excessive service, to the point where she had to share a cab with a sympathetic couple to get home.
A Baby Barrier
First family vacations are always memorable. The day goes by rather quickly despite all the extra preparation, shouts, and crying (not just from the infant). But what happens when the child isn’t even yours but still manages to wreck the celebration?
A couple traveled to the city of love, Paris, to meet up with some old friends in the hopes of having a romantic evening. The youngster of their acquaintance had other ideas. The couple refused to even come close to one other, ruining the event.
How outrageous a night must be before it becomes excessive? How about two pals who went on a search for a potential “kiss-interest” for the upset woman and nearly got lost?
The best friend of this Redditor made the decision to get involved with someone new in an attempt to forget over their ex, but the plan didn’t exactly pan out. The two didn’t look back on their overindulgent night as a pleasant recollection. At least they could commiserate about it while having brunch the following day.
Clueless and Crushing
Oh, the things we will do to entice someone to pay attention to us! When the school’s heartthrob decided to speak with her, this girl was willing to take a chance on her by looking like Cher from Clueless.
After having a private moment, the Redditor imagined that they might one day be married. It worked while they were spending time together and getting along, but it quickly fell apart when a certain Zoe drew his attention.
Tangled in Love
It might be difficult introducing your significant other to your family. You’re not sure if the two parties will get along or even like one another. This dad saw nothing wrong with it because his young cousin had started the whole thing by crashing his brand-new toy helicopter into the girl’s hair.
We can predict how the story will end because we are aware of how readily hair tangles and how a helicopter’s blades operate. He never again ran into her.
Dave & Buster’s
People often don’t end relationships on special occasions like Valentine’s Day, Christmas, and of course, New Year’s Eve out of respect for others. When this Redditor decided to spend the day with her ex-boyfriend and his family, she probably didn’t give it much thought.
She didn’t make any bookings because she wanted to end her relationship with her lover in a low-key manner. They spent their New Year’s Eve at Dave and Buster’s with two minors because they knew that everywhere in America was already occupied.
Some Idiot Living Upstairs
When we’re having too much fun, we frequently become distracted from our surroundings, which can be dangerous. On New Year’s Eve, this somewhat inebriated Redditor could hear laughter coming from an apartment above as they trudged along the alleys of Orchard Street.
Naturally, they turned to see and were greeted by a terrible scene. They were in direct range of a sheet of glass that had been flung out of the window. Fortunately, it shattered immediately in front of them without hitting them.
The Other Side Was Green
One of the few times when it really was true that the grass was greener on the other side. His relative completely dumped this man for a female that he had just met. The author of the piece was unfamiliar with the roads because he had never gone to his cousin’s college town.
His date started throwing up after his cousin made love to a girl, and her roommate eventually ejected him from the girl’s apartment. He walked around the deserted streets all night, attempting to process what had just transpired.
The Perfect Prank
My family! I am unable to live with them or without them. With this particular horror story, a Reddit member demonstrated the number of trouble siblings can cause. They were overserved by their brother, which caused them to temporarily lose their composure.
After then, the user was made to believe they were in a dream because the entire house had been decked with flags of the current year. A DVD of the previous year’s New Year’s program was being played as the notorious 2009 glasses were worn, in order to make the plot plausible.
Shoot for the Stars
Kids can be so bizarre! This Redditor user shares their childhood experience in today’s episode of how a child comprehended something absolutely incorrectly and came up with their own method of doing things.
When they were little, their mother would toast them in response when they asked her what to do when it was midnight. We completely appreciate where the child was coming from despite the lack of available information. They flung their sparkling glass at the ceiling, which immediately put an end to the celebration.
Sayonara Suede Shoes
On the eve of the new year, it might be nice to relax and go with the flow. But we have to be careful not to let it get to our heads. This tale demonstrates how someone could overindulge after having to attend three parties in one night.
Things suddenly started to go wrong, and the sickness began to set in. Her dad had given her a pair of suede shoes for Christmas, and she spat all over them. They also had to pay for thorough cleaning of a carpet.
As a Friend
It’s common to lose control when your body is experiencing a wide range of emotions during an adrenaline-charged period. This Redditor experienced exactly that, but it wasn’t like the scenes from a sitcom depicting a fairy tale. She blurted out, “I love you,” to the man she was feeling, and at first got an “I love you, too.”
He experienced completely different emotions the following morning, though. She continued to try with him for a further year before realizing it was hopeless.
The One in A/E
There have been numerous instances of how parties have gone drastically wrong throughout the hours. This Redditor described one instance when their 16-year-old brother disrupted their friend’s NY party, noting that most of these “heat of the moment confrontations” occur in school and college days when adolescents are high on hormones.
An unpleasant altercation and a worrying overnight stay at the A/E with their intoxicated brother ensued. What a way to bring the year to a close, huh?
Norway’s Chilly Air
If you don’t make a reservation for lodging before traveling over the holidays, you almost certainly will spend that night sleeping in the transportation hubs. On their New Year’s vacation, this group of friends had enjoyed seeing Norway, but they completely overlooked the fact that they still needed a place to bed.
They were forced to settle for sleeping on the station floor after numerous fruitless attempts to book a hotel and sleep in the underground. Not the best experience, but a good story to tell.
Running in Circles
It’s disappointing that these buddies were invited to two different New Year’s Eve parties but were unable to attend either. With a tiny group of guests awkwardly walking on their feet and attempting small talk, their initial option was clearly a dud.
You’d think they’d be able to take pleasure in the second party. As they missed the second party and rang in the new year in the pouring rain at a roundabout, luck was obviously not on their side.
Money Down the Drain
Parties and festivities have always been heavily influenced by peer pressure. Some people simply don’t enjoy the large crowd, while others aren’t used to spending a lot of time at celebrations. Are we right that cheap thrills are the best?
This person went to a pricey party with a friend despite not being in favor of spending more than $13 a night. The celebrations were ruined utterly since the universe probably didn’t like its saver to blow their savings in such a way. $136 lost! the same!
Family Means Drama
We can all agree that families can be very hectic unless they are picture-perfect and appear to have just left a movie. Big family gatherings nearly always involve drama, regardless of size. This family experienced a string of “accidents” when they attempted to cross one New Year’s Eve.
The extra table broke, forcing the use of a dog grooming table for supper, a sister-in-law recovering from food sickness, one excessively drunk mother-in-law, noisy kids, and much more were among the notable disasters. Thankfully, the six-month-old child of the post’s author was the only one who was calm.
The Red Drink Reverberation
Being thrifty can enable you to save money for your more worthwhile endeavors. However, we advise against trying to do anything if your judgment is clouded. Without taking into account how delicate glass bottles are, one person attempted to bring their bottle inside the bar in a white tote bag.
The bottle broke into pieces with a single knock, as was to be expected, pouring the vivid red liquid all over the bag. The bag was a stunning maroon color, and within was some broken glass. Thankfully, the bouncers ignored him.
My Best Friend’s Brother
The premise is eerily reminiscent of such tales, and the title seems like it belongs in a Wattpad novel for teenagers. The post’s author met up with a guy after having a little too much to drink. Even when she woke up in the morning, it wasn’t the end of the world.
But when he moved over and she saw his face, she realized she had made a mistake. It was a startling 11 years younger than her—her brother’s best friend! She might have watched his children!
King of All Hangovers
This woman was quite content to not have any significant plans for New Year’s Eve. You mature and learn that these holidays you were so looking forward to are nothing more than excuses to overindulge and splurge. She made the choice to stay in as her family prepared a wonderful night out.
She was forced to indulge herself by typical NYE pressure, and boy did she regret it! She fell asleep before midnight and awoke the next morning with a condition that, in our opinion, could not have been treated with all the aspirin in the world put together.
This specific woman was very open about the fact that she had several awful New Year’s Eve experiences before disclosing the one that irritated her the most. In all honesty, it’s rather upsetting. While clubbing, she met a guy, and they got along well.
They quickly began taking it to the washroom on the top floor despite the fact that it was off-limits to the general public. What a terrible mentality! The bouncer managed to catch them in the act and threw her out while applauding the gentleman on the “catch.”
Life Lesson Learned
The only person who can host a 10-person party is the eccentric Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory because he would be direct enough to eject guests if things got out of hand.
Although Andrew made an effort, there haven’t been many occasions when an NYE celebration could be kept under control. He spent the first few hours of the new year cleaning his filthy apartment till five in the morning. in the worst way conceivable, lesson learned.
Clean it Up
Up until someone pukes and you have to clean it up, everything is amusing! On New Year’s Eve, Charlie and his buddies had a terrific time. Everyone had consumed much too much alcohol, which made it inevitable that someone would eventually become ill.
Although their night was wonderful, the hotel management informed them the next morning that one of their friends had puked on another guest’s balcony. What an unusual way to start the year—cleaning up frozen vomit.
One Night in Custody
Although being drunk on New Year’s Eve has become “in,” folks shouldn’t join any bandwagons if they can’t control themselves as things start to get a little more relaxed. On New Year’s Eve, Ciara had a rather uncomfortable experience when a crude man who was obviously intoxicated called her names.
Her boyfriend attempted to intervene to “protect her honor,” but instead found himself spending the entire evening at the police station with the insulter. The top ten things that didn’t work out the way people expected.
Drowning in Tears
It’s very unfortunate that there are so many reports of people being discarded just before a new year. What a great way to sour the occasion of starting a new chapter in your life. After a man she was quite taken with began neglecting her, poor Emma spent the entire night wallowing in her grief.
She stayed home and treated herself to some “painkilling” liquid indulgence while he and her buddies were out having fun. Having FOMO on these nights is a miserable experience.
Can You Shut Up?
A difficult period can come after getting over an ex. People attempt to digest their emotions and forget painful memories. Sometimes, even after one has persuaded oneself to go on, the anguish persists. Tina had gone to a hotel with her six-month boyfriend for a New Year’s Eve party.
Unfortunately, his ex-girlfriend and her new beau attended. While Tina processed the events in complete disbelief, he spent the whole of the evening trying to deal with this. It couldn’t have been simple sharing a space with all of them!
A Beginner’s Fate
When Katie and her companion made the decision to drink the full bottle on New Year’s Eve, she genuinely believed she had everything under control. She also had never done it before! For the first couple of hours, everything was peaches and rainbows, but the couple fell ill incredibly quickly.
Naturally, before falling asleep, they puked all over the place. Even when you’re used to the occasional drink, hangovers can be painful, but when they’re so intense for the first time, ouch!
Can’t Hold a Drink
Big Apple’s first New Year’s Eve! Emilie was about to spend the best night of her life when the notion crossed her mind. She spent more than $100 preparing for an open-bar event and became overwhelmed. But you should never drink when you’re hungry!
She fired ten times. After that, she misplaced her credit cards, tripped down the stairs, and utterly forgot how she got gum in her coat or where her ID was. If she was still excited about New York after that, we want to know.
One Nosebleed Later
What do you do at a party where you know no one and is only there with your younger sister? Easy. Like MJ, you take a seat in the corner and suck your beverage. They neglected to rein in the extravagance, though, and the plot quickly soured.
They were so drunk they puked in the bathroom and managed to bleed their nose after getting smacked in the face. It’s easy to suppose that they didn’t feel very proud of the occasion.
New Year Wishes Gone Wrong
There have been times throughout history when the onlooker had no choice but to remark, “What a jerk! “to a person who dumped their significant other under difficult circumstances. The boy had the gall to dump Anna after she made a big deal out of New Year’s Eve, contacted her entire family, and cooked!
He had the option to do this either before or after the incident. It is harsh, though, to declare that you want to end the relationship while everyone is going around the table making wishes for the next year.
Not Anymore, Missy
It’s possible to enjoy yourself on New Year’s Eve without drinking yourself to death. David was sober up until 11 o’clock. He thought he wanted to catch up after meeting his friends and chugged too much too quickly. By midnight, he was cuddling up to a girl and had her in his arms.
The girl requested if they could resume their conversation after an incident of projectile vomit in the restroom. Thankfully, he declined out of respect for his personal cleanliness.
Goodbye Little Friend
It is really depressing to bid a new buddy go right before the start of a new year. A guinea pig owned by the post’s author’s sister lived with her for nearly two weeks before dying from extreme cold.
What’s tragic is that the tiny creature passed away at the exact moment the clock rang twelve, thus beginning the new year on a very depressing note. Please keep in mind that guinea pigs cannot withstand cold temperatures as a baby if you have one as a pet.
Daddy’s Little Girl
Ece endured some of the worst nights ever, but she did nothing! She accepted her friend’s invitation to come over, intending to have a good New Year’s Eve. Unfortunately, 20 minutes after 12 o’clock, the friend began throwing up after getting too drunk.
They couldn’t even get back to the friend’s apartment since she managed to forget her keys. She watched as her best friend sat on the curb in her own vomit pool while they waited for her father to take them up.
Go Home, Grandma!
When you’ve been out of high school for a while and suddenly feel like a kid, does everyone go through that stage? When Rachel found herself at a party with guests who were a few years younger than her, a complete mental breakdown was in store for her.
The weight that came with being the “oldest one” and their obvious age difference soon made her lose confidence, and she spent the next several hours eating her weight in fries and sobbing uncontrollably.
Another instance of a friend making an effort to help another friend, only to realize that it will probably thwart all of their intentions. Gigi invited a friend of hers who didn’t have any NYE plans to spend the night with her.
The companion was supposed to be grateful, but instead, she became nasty, left the club, and blamed Gigi for everything. Unfortunately, Gigi was unable to break the cycle since she later met a man who had little patience for her angry outbursts.
Blame it on Me
We feel a little envious that Cait can only recall one time in which her New Year’s Eve wasn’t the finest. Bubbly has a horrible reputation for having an uncontrollable spill, but as the group celebrated and sipped their drinks, it’s possible that they forgot about this.
But the real trouble started when she saw that her ex-boyfriend’s coat was covered in champagne. They undoubtedly realized things weren’t going to work out when the drunken pair stood in a restroom at Penn Station trying to dry it with a malfunctioning hand dryer.
Eventful Midnight Kiss
It might be challenging to adjust to someone’s absence after being accustomed to sharing every other significant event in your life with them. Just 30 minutes before midnight, a husband pining for his wife compelled him to abandon his all-boys party so he could start the new year kissing her.
What about you? In light of the fact that the pair had made the decision to host separate New Year’s Eve parties, we think that is extremely lovely. This simply goes to show that not every New Year’s Eve celebration needs to go south!
My Three Soulmates
When someone refers to their soulmate, they may not always mean their significant other. Someone with whom you felt safe and shared every aspect of your life could be your soulmate. This woman made the decision to spend New Year’s Eve with her three best companions, and that is her tale.
The quartet kissed each other to start the new year and had a blast. Even if their tale lacked the sparkle and glamour of a typical New Year’s celebration, it was nevertheless unique in its own right.
