While some people have been taking to social media to share their highlights and achievements of the year gone by, others are using the New Year to reflect on past mistakes.
In a hilarious thread, started by Rachel Millman, from Brooklyn, New York, Twitter users have revealed the stupidest things they did in 2018 – including one man who lost a bet and ended up getting a Steve Buscemi tattoo.
Rachel asked her followers to reveal something ridiculous and the 1,600 responses did not disappoint, with one woman admitting she almost stole a coyote after thinking it was a stray puppy, and another saying they tried to zoom in on a paper map.
Other brilliant tales include a man who tried to unlock his front door with his car keys, and another who told a receptionist at a doctor’s office he ‘needed a cleaning’ after mistaking it for a dentist.
