It’s always easier to read situations and see things clearly when you’re not the one inside of a moment or decision. It turns out this also holds true for objects you’re staring at but can’t figure out – there’s an entire sub-Reddit called What Is This Thing to help you out.
The 17 pictures below will crack you up…mostly because you won’t be able to believe the person holding the thing didn’t know what the thing was until Reddit told them.

At least you know the internet is always ready and willing to help no matter the answer!
