Having a rough day already? It could be worse. You could be these seals.

This video, taken by  Bob Wick of the US Fish and Wildlife Service, shows a group of seals resting happily on rocks at the King Range National Conservation Area in Humboldt County, California, until they get a rude awakening.

A wave comings up behind and scoops all of them right off their places, sweeping them into the water. All but one of them lose their place, with the only remaining seal clearly wondering what's going on.

Since going online only a few hours ago, the video has already racked up more than 15,000 views.
