Reddit's TIFU (Today I F*cked Up) forum is a magical place where people can admit their most egregious mistakes, ranging from lightly embarrassing to "I need to move, now". Here are five hilarious posts from people we hope to never relate to:
The overhead fan in our bedroom uses one of those compact halogen light bulbs.
6 years ago the bulb burned out and got really dim, just barely a glow. I bought a replacement bulb but when I put that one in it was also barely lighting up so I realized the unit was bad.
The fan still worked GREAT, it literally is the best fan I’ve ever had because it moves a ton of air and is super quiet. The fan had also been a gift when we moved into our house, the unit cost over $400 so I didn’t really want to replace it even though our bedroom doesn’t get much natural light so it is pretty dark.
