This Persons Attempt To Order A Box Of Boxes From Amazon Fails So Badly, It Becomes A Meme

0

Dave Meslin just posted what could be considered as a modern-day social media version of Groundhog Day. In the original 1993 fantasy comedy, weatherman Phil Connors (played by Bill Murray) finds himself inexplicably living the same day over and over again. In Dave’s real-life re-enactment, the man kept receiving the granola and Harry Potter coaster deliveries even though he ordered plain boxes.

After Dave realized he’s stuck in a hilarious never-ending loop, he detailed the whole ordeal on Twitter and his thread instantly went viral. Continue scrolling to read how everything unfolded and let us know what you think of the story in the comments.

Interestingly, Meslin isn’t the first one to experience the “real-life” Groundhog Day. The Telegraph reported that a student was forced to drop out of university after a bizarre case of chronic déjà vu left him unable to lead a normal life.

The 23-year-old stopped watching TV, listening to the radio, and even reading newspapers and magazines because he couldn’t help but believe he had seen it all before.

He explained to the doctors that he was “trapped in a time loop” and said he felt as if he was reliving the past over and over and over again.

The story went viral after details of the case were published in the Journal of Medical Case Reports. Doctors were baffled because the man didn’t suffer from any of the neurological conditions that are usually seen in people who experience frequent déjà vu – which is French for “already seen”.

Some speculate that panic attacks may have led the poor guy to get trapped in the phenomenon. Also, his condition may have been inflamed by taking LSD.

Eventually, someone transformed the whole story into a meme

If you find yourself in similar circumstances, feeling that each day is the same and you’re living in a rut, try new things. Ronald E Riggio Ph.D., the Henry R. Kravis Professor of Leadership and Organizational Psychology, said it’s the best you can do if you have little or no vivid memory of the time flying by.

Go to a new place for dinner, try a new sport, take a trip to somewhere you’ve never been to before. Meet new people or get to know your colleagues you pass each day at the coffee machine.

In short, you break out of the rut by breaking down your routines.
