TikTokers are sharing their good deeds gone wrong and it’s painful to watch

They say that no good deed goes unpunished — and these good deeds gone wrong are undeniable proof of that.

User Emily Ramirez started a new TikTok trend with a video in which she asked her followers to tell her about their “good deeds gone wrong” before sharing her own tale.

Ramirez, a performer and comedian, said that one time when she volunteered to sing at a children’s hospital, an immunocompromised teenage patient asked her to sing the song “Just Around The Corner” from The Addams Family musical.

Considering she had previously played Morticia Adams in a version of the show, Ramirez was excited over the request — until she reached the chorus, and remembered what the song was actually about.

“Death is just around the corner, waiting patiently to strike,” Ramirez sang with the lyrics — which are clearly not great for a room full of sick people — in her TikTok.

“That’s the whole song,” she continued. “And I didn’t want to stop singing because it’s (the patient’s) favorite song and it makes her happy and that’s what I’m there for. But everyone else was looking at me like I was a psychopath … I’m so mortified by the whole thing.”

Fellow TikTokers piled on to Ramirez’s embarrassing experience with their own tales of good deeds gone wrong.

User Sierra Moses shared that when she was in college, she spotted two drunk girls “stumbling around” outside of a bar she was leaving with her friends.

“There were creepy guys around so I wanted to make sure they were OK,” she explained in her TikTok.

After learning that one of the girl’s phones had died and the other had no cell reception, Moses and the pair exchanged information and she agreed to call them an Uber if they would Venmo her money for the ride the next day.

Shortly after, Moses received a call from the Uber driver informing her that one of the girls had thrown up and it would be a $200 cleaning fee.

The next day, when Moses reached out to both of the girls about the money, they blocked her.

“I was just trying to do something nice and I got screwed over,” she said.

In another tragic good deed gone wrong, a TikTok user named Michael explained that a few years ago, he landed a gig playing a wedding through his friend, who knew the bride. The couple more or less gave Michael total control over the musical choices for the wedding.

So, when he walked into the church on the big day and overheard a few guests discussing “Pachelbel Canon in D Major,” Michael decided to play it before the bride walked down the aisle.

What he didn’t know was that that bride’s father — who was also a pianist — had died a month after the bride and groom got engaged, and “Pachabel Canon in D Major” was his favorite song to play.

Naturally, the piece elicited some emotions.

“Everyone was crying so hard it delayed the entire service by 45 minutes,” Michael said.
