Shit happens is a common vulgar slang phrase. It is used as a simple existential observation that life has many unpredictable events, either "Así es la vida" or "C'est la vie". The phrase accepts that bad things happen to people for no reason. The phrase was first found in 1964, but wasn't used in a print publication until 1983. "Stuff happens" is also said.
