2020 marked the beginning of standardizing remote work protocols. After too many people became used to attending classes and meetings via video chat, dressing their bottom half seemed useless.
Business suits — out. Button-downs with boxer shorts — in. This family took the concept a tad too far if you ask us. Nobody needs to know the horrors that Dad’s camping booties have seen.
Hosing It Down
Getting all dolled up to get your picture taken? Nothing wrong with that. Posing with a family member for a special occasion? We get it. Finding a nice spot to serve as background? Completely valid.
Making a face that makes the photographer think you have a dead body stashed in your Lego box? Standing there with a running hose? Not vibing with your mom in the slightest? Now you've lost us.
Cue the Crying Emoji
We know the promise here was of awkward family photos — not sad ones — but here we are. Let's put aside the fact that too many elements of this image look photoshopped together (the kids in the tub, the note on the wall) and face the sad truth — nobody is really going to the beach.
Staycation is all fun and games until you realize the sunblock won't be blocking any sun and your tub can only hold one of your flippers at a time.
To cap a trip to the zoo with her parents, this girl wanted to get a nice picture of the three of them. So far so good. The only thing is we don't see the actual girl.
What we can see is a couple of elderly people riding a tortoise, which we are pretty sure is illegal in at least one state. Though we've never seen a tortoise with hair. Must be a rare one.
Well, It's SOMEONE'S Family
We're going to put the fake bookshelves aside for a second, to tell you the story of how this picture ended up on Instagram. When asking his uncle for a family picture of his mother with her parents, this Instagrammer was given this three-by-four feet canvas with people he's never seen and isn't related to.
Apparently, the uncle found this random photo and decided to keep it strictly for awkward value, which we can totally relate to. He especially enjoyed the girl to the right who is about to rip her own fingers off.
