Don’t spike the football and don’t rub it in!
I remember that advice from various coaches when I was growing up playing sports.
Another one they should have included is “don’t celebrate too early. Ever!”
Because sometimes your celebration gets turned on its head and then you look like a total moron.
Let’s check out some examples of what I’m talking about, shall we?
1. Poor Missippi…that place just can’t catch a break.
I think that’s how you spell it, right?
2. Sorry about that.
Well, that has to be pretty frustrating, right?
3. Thanks for the confession.
Come on dude, don’t broadcast that kind of stuff!
4. This is definitely NOT a good idea.
And now you can’t get any food delivered! Are you satisfied?!?!
5. It was fun while it lasted…
And then March came around…
6. Doh! Spoke too soon!
Hey, you gotta be careful out there!
7. That didn’t end well.
Those things ain’t cheap, either!
8. The definition of a premature celebration.
Gotta wait til you cross the finish line!
9. Time to start from zero again…
Well, isn’t that a bummer?
10. This really didn’t age well, huh?
The iPhone definitely didn’t go the way of the dodo.
11. Crime doesn’t pay.
At least it doesn’t most of the time.
12. This is gonna get ugly.
When the groom-to-be makes a comment like this, it’s time to reevaluate things.
Have you ever celebrated too early and then felt like an idiot?
If so, please share your stories with us in the comments.
Thanks a lot, ladies and gents!
