There are few things more terrifying than when something happens to your precious. By ‘precious,’ I mean your car, of course. And by ‘your,’ I mean that you may or may not have just made your final car payment before something horrendous happened to your beautiful gilded horseless carriage.

It might have been your fault; it might have been a darn seagull that dropped a catfish on your windshield (true story); it might even have been the Universe that messed up. But either way, some car owners are having such a horrible day that they can loudly proclaim that it sucks (and it’s way worse than yours)! So it’s no wonder that they posted their experiences on the ‘Well That Sucks’ subreddit.

Check out the photos of some of the best worst car disasters that Bored Panda collected below and remember to upvote the ones that made you cringe or forced your heart to skip a beat as you scroll down. Bored Panda also contacted the ‘Well That Sucks’ moderator team to learn more about their subreddit, so check out our interview with one of them, redditor Chaos_a, below. When you’re done praying that nothing bad like what’s in this post ever happens to your car, take a peek at our other posts about the ‘Well That Sucks’ community right here, here, as well as here.

With over 2.3 million members, the ‘Well That Sucks’ community posts a bit of everything for everyone. The subreddit is dedicated to all the unpleasant things that happen in life and make us say, “Well, that sucks,” and has been up and running since the Spring of 2013.

Chaos_a attributes the vast popularity of the ‘Well That Sucks’ community to crossposting. “The creator of this subreddit went around making posts with ‘cross post /r/wellthatsucks’ in the title. It’s a pretty common tactic on Reddit and clearly worked out for us. They gained enough [attention] to get the ball rolling. Redditors must enjoy joining in on other peoples minor miseries, and we’ve grown to well over 2 million users since then,” they told us.

According to the moderator, their subreddit gets between 80 and 100 posts each day. And thousands of comments on top of that. However, the mod team is well on top of things.

“Most of our moderation process is automated just to keep the volunteer workload to a minimum. Our biggest issue is people who post memes. We’re actively trying to stop the subreddit from becoming meme-focused and keep it as close to its original type of content as we can,” Chaos_a pointed out that there’s a secretwar on memes going on in the background.

We were also curious to know if the moderator ever had a “well, that sucks” moment related to cars in their life. “Unfortunately (or fortunately) not,” they shared.

If you think that getting into an accident is scary, imagine how much trouble you can be in if you don’t have any insurance. But navigating the world of car insurance practically requires a Master’s Degree, a wise and friendly mechanic, or an engine-minded uncle who’s been behind the wheel since he was tall enough to reach the gas pedal.

If you’re living in the United States, then the most important coverage is your state’s minimum liability and property damage coverage, writes The Balance. Remember, you have to pay your insurance so that you can drive around legally. And you can land in hot water if you don’t. You can get fines, be eligible for damages, and might even get sued if you get into an accident without insurance.

However, there are plenty of other types of insurance that you can (and might want to) get: physical damage coverage, comprehensive coverage, collision coverage, and others. It can make your head spin. So get to grips with all of your financial things before you end up having a worse day than others. And don’t forget—if all else fails, there’s nothing shameful about riding a bike to work!
