We all know that life rarely ever turns out the way you want it to. A friend of mine once told me, “If you want to hear God laugh, tell him your plans,” and it really is true.
Anyone who’s spent time on the internet knows all about the “Expectation vs. Reality” memes, because they are so instantly relatable.
Twitter user Mai Tai recently had her own version of the Expectation vs. Reality experience when her nail job didn’t quite go right…

But don’t get too discouraged, because there were also plenty of people who got just what they wanted and then some:

It just goes to show, not all nail technicians are created equal (and also probably avoid the one that Mai Tai went to).
