If you've spent more than three seconds online today, you’ve probably seen a lot of Michael Phelps’ scowl, as #PhelpsFace is the Olympic meme du jour. The photo captures Phelps’ beastly glare at his rival, South African swimmer Chad le Clos during Monday’s Olympic meet.

Here are our very own #PhelpsFace memes for those devastating annoyances we run into every day in Chicago:

Wow, I was almost interested.
Guess I'll just awkwardly stand here holding my tacos...
Come on!
No matter who bought it, it's still the Sears Tower.
Why am I even still out if he's not gonna show?
Wait... You mean... I have to go somewhere else?
Lawn furniture rules this city.
Like, ironically?
This has already happened way too many times this summer.
Every. Day.
