The Viral TikTok Trend 'What I Wanted Vs. What I Got' Is Pure Gold

It can be hard to give up control over something. And that is exactly what we do every time we go to get our hair cut or our nails done, or our dog groomed. We release control and trust that some 'professional' knows better than us. It's their job after-all, there must be a reason they make a living... right?

On TikTok, people are posting different examples of 'What they asked for' Vs. 'What they got' and considering most of these outcomes are not irreversible (except for maybe #14), they are pretty darn hilarious.

The growing movement of influencers exposing the harsh truths behind the seemingly picture-perfect lives we see on Instagram raises awareness of the influencer industry's detrimental effects on consumers. But still, people continue to compare their real lives to the fake ones they perceive to be perfect on Instagram and other social media platforms, which can create body image issues, jealousy, and insecurities, amongst other things.
