1. When a you're in a spooky house and a skeleton pops out.
    Man, I really hate it when that happens.
  2. Surprise birthday parties
    You know, I'm always thinking, "Damn, I can't believe everyone forgot about my birthday and has been avoiding me in general today." Then I go home to be alone with myself and remember that my birthday isn't for another three weeks.
  3. An unexpected illness
    Sometimes these are fun, but usually they are a bummer
  4. Thanksgiving
    They keep moving it around. Same for Easter and Valentine's Day. The reason might be to keep the turkeys uninformed to prevent them from organizing a pheasant rebellion.
  5. Frank Ocean's new album
    Wow, what a surprise that was. I was not expecting that release at all, but I'm so grateful that it's out now.
  6. When you see someone you haven't seen in a while
    This is only a surprise if you aren't planning for it.
  7. Alarm clocks
    You can never predict these things.
  8. When you click on a link and it leads to a page you weren't expecting to visit
    I don't know why people make links like that. It doesn't feel good to be tricked by someone.
