A mother's hilarious kindergarten photo fail pretty much sums up 2020

Brittany Kinley, a mother from Mansfield, Texas, had a hilarious mom fail her and she's chalking it up to being just another crazy thing that happened in 2020.

When Kinley filled out the order form for her son Mason's kindergarten class pictures, there was an option to have his name engraved into the photos. But Kinley wasn't interested in having her son's name on the photos so she wrote "I DON'T WANT THIS" on the box.

Well, it appears as though she should have left the box blank because the computer or incredibly literal human that designed the photographs wrote "I DON'T WANT THIS" where mason's name should be.


Kinley shared the photo on Facebook where it's gone viral receiving over 16,000 likes and 38,000 shares.

"I'm sure everyone needs a good laugh these days so thanks to my latest mom fail...you're welcome in advance haha," Kinley captioned the photo. "Mason got his kindergarten pictures and I didn't want his name on the bottom so I typed in "I don't want this" and they freaking printed this…"

Having "I DON'T WANT THIS" printed on a photo that represents 2020 resonated with a lot of people on Facebook. Probably because it's what we've been saying to ourselves day after day of being stuck in the house or going outside and seeing normally busy places turned into ghost towns.

"Love! This is something I would definitely do!! and... it's the motto for 2020," a commenter named Chrysa wrote.

"This is a 2020 MOOD! Trying to smile but deep inside we are all I DON'T WANT THIS," Omar added.

But Kinley is just happy she's given people the chance to laugh in such a trying year.

"I think 2020 has been such a hard year for everyone and people need some positivity and a good laugh," Kinley said according to Today.

"I've gotten so many messages from people saying they haven't laughed this hard all year and that it made their day," she added. "I never thought it would have that effect but I'm so glad we can spread laughter in a crazy time like this."

Mason now feels famous after all the attention his photo is getting. "He'll occasionally ask how many more people is he making laugh," Kinley said, adding "his teachers gave him a round of applause and yelled, 'I do want this!' during drop off!'"

Kinley has tried to get a hold of the company that printed the pictures but she hasn't had any luck as of yet.

"It's not their fault. It was my mom fail," Kinley said, "so no bad feelings there!"

Even if she does get new photos printed that don't say, "I DON'T WANT THIS" she has to keep a few of the original shots because they're sure to be a perfect reminder of the year nobody wanted.

True

It takes a special type of person to become a nurse. The job requires a combination of energy, empathy, clear mind, oftentimes a strong stomach, and a cheerful attitude. And while people typically think of nursing in a clinical setting, some nurses are driven to work with the people that feel forgotten by society.

The Emperor of the Seas.

Imagine retiring early and spending the rest of your life on a cruise ship visiting exotic locations, meeting interesting people and eating delectable food. It sounds fantastic, but surely it’s a billionaire’s fantasy, right?

Not according to Angelyn Burk, 53, and her husband Richard. They’re living their best life hopping from ship to ship for around $44 a night each. The Burks have called cruise ships their home since May 2021 and have no plans to go back to their lives as landlubbers. Angelyn took her first cruise in 1992 and it changed her goals in life forever.

“Our original plan was to stay in different countries for a month at a time and eventually retire to cruise ships as we got older,” Angelyn told 7 News. But a few years back, Angelyn crunched the numbers and realized they could start much sooner than expected.

However, there are a few one-of-a-kind individuals like Elaine Ahn, an operating room registered nurse in Diamond Bar, California, who thrive under this type of constant pressure.

Prior to baby formula, breastfeeding was the norm, but that doesn't mean it always worked.

As if the past handful of years weren't challenging enough, the U.S. is currently dealing with a baby formula crisis.

Due to a perfect storm of supply chain issues, product recalls, labor shortages and inflation, manufacturers are struggling to keep up with formula demand and retailers are rationing supplies. As a result, families that rely on formula are scrambling to ensure that their babies get the food they need.

Naturally, people are weighing in on the crisis, with some throwing out simplistic advice like, "Why don't you just do what people did before baby formula was invented and just breastfeed?"

That might seem logical, unless you understand how breastfeeding works and know a bit about infant mortality throughout human history.

Dr. Alicia Jeffrey-Thomas teaches you how to pee.

A pelvic floor doctor from Boston, Massachusetts, has caused a stir by explaining that something we all thought was good for our health can cause real problems. In a video that has more than 5.8 million views on TikTok, Dr. Alicia Jeffrey-Thomas says we shouldn’t go pee “just in case.”

How could this be? The moment we all learned to control our bladders we were also taught to pee before going on a car trip, sitting down to watch a movie or playing sports.

The doctor posted the video as a response to TikTok user Sidneyraz, who made a video urging people to go to the bathroom whenever they get the chance. Sidneyraz is known for posting videos about things he didn’t learn until his 30s. "If you think to yourself, 'I don't have to go,' go." SidneyRaz says in the video. It sounds like common sense but evidently, he was totally wrong, just like the rest of humanity.
