Moments Where People Were Caught Seething With EnvyBy Jo Arazi
Stuck at the corner of this cabinet, this cat sits with woe in her eyes, and her pink fluffy ears anticipating the call of her name. When you do call her, she’ll strut for a minute, taking her time, before casually striding unto the bed.
That’s her marking the territory. Because no matter what breed of animal you pet next, she will always be the Queen Bee. Her sabre-tooth and fleek nails will see to that.
Jealousy takes its human form in this unmarried status. That best man may explain that the sun had caused him to squint in disbelief, but the experience would tell us that you’re either happy for the couple, or resentful of the bride or the groom.
You won’t be able to hangout with your buddy the same way you did. And sometimes, best men also have similar preferences in women. Who’d he gracefully let go this marriage- his best friend, or a lost love?
Million Dollar Baby
Will Ferrel won an MTV award and bagged a trophy in 2013. Aubrey Plaza sat on the first row, walked over and tried to grab the trophy from him. Ferrel, being the Comedic Genius, asked “what’s happening?”
Plaza shortly retreated. Ferrel tweeted that it had gone just as they rehearsed, but the truth of the matter was that she was probably drunk and had tried to pull a Kanye stunt during Ferrel’s acceptance speech. Aubrey was booted from the awards that night. Talk about humiliating.
Daggers in their Eyes
Talk about awkward. If your current beau shook hands with your ex, just what telltale secrets would he confide? You wouldn’t want him to beat you to it. So you patiently wait while furtively fixing that lock of hair. By the way that was intended to block visibility on your right eye.
It all ended well though. Theroux grabbed Aniston’s butt at the MTV Awards After-party on their way home. There was nothing Sudeikis could have said to disarm Theroux’s commitment to Aniston.
Second in Rank
This is the only battle where you would vie to be the center of attention. In all other wars, you’re better off as a captain, a lieutenant, or a four-star general because your chances of survival are higher. Either way, there’s glory in that victory as can be seen here.
Andy Murray’s burning desire richochets of Djokovic’s back because of that trophy. Just in case you’re wondering, this was the Australian Open Final in 2013. Murray has gotten exceedingly better since then.
When you’re looking this hot, best believe you’d be turning heads of either sex. It’s not like women have to compete with each other. Beauty just comes in different sizes, and if you’re confident enough it will shine through as can be seen from the woman below.
Isn’t that an embodiment of female sexuality – a taboo item that has become acceptable because it has been brought to light? So go ahead and live your life, the way you want to.
Those two words can trigger a series of traumatic events, or they can be a scrapbook of fond memories. Take for example the most popular kids in school, hanging out with each other and thriving on each other’s passive aggresiveness.
It’s only in retrospect that we’ re thankful we didn’t fit in, but for the sake of reminiscing, it always feels like envy “wears a coat and hangs out in hallways”.
This meek Golden Retriever inched her way towards her mum, peering by the side of the latter’s laptop. When she found that it was safe to come out, she edged for a rub below the chin.
Mum’s been working too hard and failing to notice the dog. Those e-mails and attachments have seized her attention. A couple of minutes of rub will do and a whole evening of cuddle will soften the distance.
Time as Old as Tale
Even in Old Hollywood, illustrious stars side-eyed each other. Here’s a picture of sultry, mysterious Sophia Loren catching a glimpse of Jayne Mansfield’s near extinct valuables.
Loren claims that she was concerned Mansfield’s bosom might escape the fortress – “I’m so afraid that everything in her dress is going to going to blow – BOOM! – and spill all over the table”. Well, it’s good to know that women look after each other.
Odd One Out
The rules may not apply to the youngest but they suffer their fair share of exclusion during family outings. When you and your siblings are spaced too far apart, chances are your parents might forget they had an additional franchise.
Just as that young-ling with his outstretched palms to keep his sisters from eating any further without him. Where’s his sundae? Your parents seem to have favouritism for females in the family. Sad.
Age as a Number
Remember as kids we wanted to hangout with our older siblings’ friends? On our birthdays we would blow out candles hoping we were older, and that we were cooler, or that we’d age as gracefully as everybody else.
Now that that time has come, the wishes have reversed. Now the oldies wish they could turn back time and enjoy their youth without having to rush wisdom. Well the only thing we’d be envious for in this picture would be that chocolate cake.
Every boy becomes a man when they see their crush choose someone else. That’s okay, that’s when testosterone and adrenaline builds, and you man up. Spell crushed.
Let’s hope you stay emotionally resilient though. Because some people tend to take these heartbreaks personally. They become the very person causing the heartbreak, or the individual the heartbreak chooses. Now dry those tears, and wait for puberty to do its job.
Take one look and you’ll feel the glacial chill in this picture. With that thick fur, you’d think that this Siberian Husky would be able to tolerate the extreme temperature. But take a second longer and you’ll understand that the icy landscape had nothing to do with her demeanor.
Unfortunately, you’re friend-zoned. Best friend-zoned to be precise, and it has been said of dogs decades before this picture was taken. We know the feeling all to well- having to be replaced by another woman. So we’ll sit this one out with this Husky.
This dog owner pulled a trick on her Golden Retriever. She bought a stuffed toy that resembled her, petted it in front of the other, and cooed at it. And it worked.
In a few minutes, she placed her paw to disengage her mother’s hand on the stuffed toy. And those eyes can’t lie. She’s broken in despair that an inanimate object would take her place. Give that dog a break.
When you’re new to the gym. you would be intimidated by the intensity of workouts other people subject themselves to, and the muscles bulging out of their skin. You start to wonder, will you ever be able to pump iron as intense as they do?
Of course you will. Just stick to the routine consistently. Start small and gradually build intensity. That momentum will kick in the minute you notice your shirt has gone loose, or those waistbands need some adjusting. Celebrate your victory by adding whey and weights.
Even pets have favouritism for some individuals. We don’t understand the vibe we should be emitting, to have us welcomed like that. They’ll nestle their bodies within your palms or they’ll rest.
Look at that, it’s not as anxious as it would have been if it were handed to the chick beside her. Spikes would thrust out from the center and you’d basically have a ball of thumbtacks. We feel her vibe too. We know we’d be in good hands.
No Longer the Youngest
Mum has just gone through delivery so she can’t witness this moment. We reckon how she’d react. Those stitches might come undone with her laughter. It should be a joyful moment for everyone, but you know it was unplanned if the youngest reacts this way.
We would probably feel the same way. You never tire of attention, and when you’re around 9 years old, you wouldn’t relinquish it willingly. We have enough playmates in school, we don’t want to share toys at home too.
New Partner In Crime
Animals continue to surprise us more and more. Last year it was just this furry Contonese and her owner in the picture taken max one meter from the ground; now it’s her and her new beau.
Of course she’d have to jump to be included in the picture, but what was she doing? Was she marking her territory or fending it from him? Hold me instead human!
This baby gets jealous every time her parents kiss. Look at those eyes, it’s as if she thinks she’s an outsider to this family. We would probably cradle her in our arms while her parents show affection to each other, at least until she’s old enough to understand what the Elektra Complex is.
No don’t kiss. Oh but why? Why?. It looks as if a smooch would deprive her of something, her dad, or their affection towards her.
If you had a boyfriend would you do the same too? A healthy dose of jealousy is warranted, but maybe you should consider your partner’s tendencies to cheat or ogle at someone else. It really, has no bearing on your worth.
Loyalty in relationships is a fickle thing. Different things and events prey on your emotions. We wish this couple the best for the years to come. May his restraint be strong that she won’t need to put him under surveillance.
Expectations arise in long-term relationships. With each passing anniversary, you start thinking of sports matches as events where you could get engaged. That’s exactly what happened with the couple on the right end of the picture. Unfortunately, it was not well-received by the woman on the left.
Why her? What’s with the uproar? When are YOU going to propose? Well, he might propose more ingeniously than the grey-shirted man. Proposals mid-match have lost the element of surprise.
Being born as a middle child is said to be a risk factor for psychopathy. This picture proves such a claim.
Your eyes initially browsed the top 1-inch of the picture – it was typical of a family photo. You probably even felt yourself smiling, until you saw the middle child terrorizing her baby sister. Now even that got us laughing on our seats. Why were you born? Why did the stork have to intervene?
Katy Perry’s necklace is perfectly framed by her dress and her hairstyle. Look at Ellen chastise her for that necklace, amongst other assets. Perry simply laughs it off.
In her Twitter account, Ellen greeted Perry for having released those big balloons during the latter’s birthday party. We’re glad for the unveiling too. Perry makes a unicolor outfit look dazzling. We wouldn’t be able to pull that stunt.
Here’s another picture of a cat who exhibits some degree of territoriality. Just checking up on you guys…wondering what you’re doing and what I’m missing out on. It doesn’t sound like I’m missing out on much but it feels like I am.
Just wanted to let you guys know. And apparently so does your owner, otherwise he would not have plotted this scheme to catch you peering timidly. Your companion is just sleeping, nothing important here. But you can come on over.
Piece of Cake
Who wouldn’t want to sit in this table if it has a slice of cake on it? This woman knows her priorities, and has no care for calorie-counting. Leave it for those who don’t know how to enjoy life and the the trivial moments in between.
We would love to be surrounded by friends and family on our birthday too. Maybe that’s what’s keeping her unhappy – her company. Grab a chair and sit with us.
The cameraman had the wrong subject to focus on. And she rightfully reminded him. Too bad her facial reaction was caught on camera, and forever immortalized on the internet.
Who’d you think he ended up with? His prom date or her friends? Because we were rooting for blue. He would have probably had an easier and happier life with orange or black. If your future spouse looks at you like your prom date, best believe you better have a great degree of self-control.
You’d think that this musical group is harmonious at the very least, but Camila could be the very undoing of it.
Well she has left the group for nearly three years now. She’s a rising solo star in the musical industry, and we can’t imagine her as this green-eyed monster. At least when it comes to her bae Jauren. When asked why she left the group, it’s because they were young and that they had limited themselves to a certain image she simply had to break free of. Attagirl!
Friends or women?
You’d rarely see a guy getting jealous over a woman. But “bros over hoes” is a common male concept in adolescence until early adulthood. That’s when gender roles are discussed and threshed out among cliques. And when your best mate takes that lunge into dating, you are going to be left by the sidelines looking like this.
No one can ever take your place as his best man. A perk is that you’ll be vicariously living through your friend’s eyes as he meets women and discovers their vivacity.
We haven’t thought of breast milk as a disadvantage. But when you’re the only person within a group restrained to a liquid diet, you’re going to crave for more candles on your birthday cake. It doesn’t help that she makes a burger look mouthwatering.
Wait it out – max a year and you’ll be eating semi-solid foods to your stomach’s contentment. It isn’t as appetizing as you think. You will want to revert to milk once you reach a certain age.
Appeal to Emotion
It’s one of the most basic fallacies, but it’s the most effective one so far. You know it’s a cat, and you can see by its disheveled fur that it’s a stray. But it has more meat than the poultry you buy over the counter. So would you give it a bite of your meal?
We are guessing he did. We would have fallen for it. It’s too pitiful, yet cute that we can’t resist it victimizing others on an empty stomach.
This was before Di Caprio was able to bag a Oscar Award. He had gone for several decades without it. One commentary said that it’s because his performances are consistently impressive, but if qualified, can only fall as “good”.
To bag that award, you’d have to go from “meh” to “where did that come from? We never knew he had it in him”. And we’ve always known Di Caprio had it within since the Titanic sunk.
Guarding the Perimeter
This has an interesting backstory. The cat standing guard is named Beans. Doesn’t resemble the Englishman at all with his grouchy look, but that’s unimportant. The guy’s girlfriend gets a new dog, and tension rises between the innocent pup and the “old cat”
That dog is going to have to grow quicker than usual to dodge those claws. Either we lock him up in a cage, or we quarantine the cat to keep the house intact.
From the looks of them it shouldn’t be a surprise that the one on the left is packing more meat than his buddy. That’s because he’s able to land the big fishes while his mate scores its children.
If we had to survive in the wild, we would be more than jealous if a tribesman scores a weighty catch. We would be thin as the fishing strings cast against the river currents.
This kid has a liking for felines instead of canines, and the dog can tell. The kitten is totally oblivious to everything. That’s how it often is when you’re the new addition.
Cheer up doggo, those drooping flabs of skin will never be replaced by her pink paws. You’re every bit as adorable and as that cat, and the better part is that when she grows up, you’d be the right partner for a hug!
Wrong Choice of Treats
When your parents allow you to choose your treat, better do it with servings in mind. Would you go for a particular taste or a long-lasting treat. Because he seems to have lost appreciation for that ice pop for creamier cones.
If we were placed beside someone who devoured a treat as excitedly as she did, we would consider our dessert options too. Was he shown the full menu? Or was he given one as a sole resort?
Calling your Cat-tention
We hate it when a sibling is leveraging against us, and what’s worse is when the object of our affection plays along with it. Look at her, look at that smug feline cooing against the leg of momma.
Do you remember the last time you were held that way? Because all memories of that event have been flooded with feelings of jealousy. We hope it isn’t a total wipe-out and that there’ll be future memories to cherish.
When the reigning queen has been named, it’s easy to think that all that effort, spray tan and waxing has gone to waste. It’s not like the there aren’t any consolation prizes for those who hadn’t made the cut.
But we can hear the ill-tempoed , shallow clap and the pretense that she’s happy for her competitor. Better luck next time? Maybe you can work on your facial muscles – turn that smirk into a exuberant smile. She has the look for it.
You’d think that with the months they’ve shared the unit together, they would be able to get along well. The older cat thinks otherwise. We can hear her saying “How dare you feed us from the same plate. It and I are of different breeds. If you feed it from a container, then feed me one from a plate!”
That’s literally a green-eyed monster staring you down the lens. And it should be the focus of your attention.
