Influencers can make a living by taking glamorous pictures, but that doesn't mean the occasional mistake doesn't sometimes slip by the photographer's eye.
An example of just such a mistake was recently posted to the subreddit r/Facepalm with the caption: "Her clock is upside down."
It's not hard to guess what was wrong with the picture.
"Her whole life is upside down having a kid and all white furniture. I give that shit a month and she's gonna be buying new shit"
"She probably borrowed the baby for an instagram shoot"
"She looks like she lives, laughs, loves with the best of them."
"The clock being upside down doesn't bother me as much as the fact that it's not even straight. Maybe it's just me, but it seems like it's tilted just a touch to the right. Only enough to make me wonder if it really is tilted..."
"I'm pretty sure that's an Australian thing."
"Bathrobe and high heels? Nothing about this makes sense."
Twitter was similarly hard on the influencer in the photo.

The internet is unforgiving when it comes to photographed mistakes.

Could the clock have some sort of Stranger Things connection?

There were, of course, other explanations offered.
@_youhadonejob1 Maybe she glued everything to the ceiling and sat upside down and took a photo like that.— Alexandre Man (@Alexandre Man)1562765657.0
One thing was certain, though—it's past this kid's bedtime!

Some people used their computers to "fix" the problem.
@_youhadonejob1 Problem solved. She was very grateful. https://t.co/2CFREABLRD— Ute Tilias (@Ute Tilias)1562786535.0

Just remember: when you're on Instagram, you'd better be careful.
All it takes is one slip up and suddenly you're being noticed for all the wrong reasons.
Roman numerals are hard for some folks. Best stick to numbers you recognize in the future.
