Expectation vs Reality: These 33 Photos Will Make You Unable To Stop Laughing

Not everything in life works out the way we want it to. Reality frequently falls short of our expectations, as when you take a perfect photo for your partner, and he takes a photo of you in the least favorable light. This can be frustrating, but if you want to look at it that way, it can also be entertaining.
We have collected 15 pics to show that you're not alone in your disappointment if your expectations were not happily satisfied by reality in an effort to lessen your pain.
