We’ve all had one of those days where all you seem capable of is screwing up. For most of us at work, that means a typo in an e-mail, or a spilled drink, or a wrong order, or any of the little accidents that usually happen as a result of a momentary lapse in concentration. At home, a mistake can result in some real stupidity, like when you brush your teeth with skin cream instead of toothpaste, or pour orange juice into your breakfast cereal, as I have done many times before.
It used to be that these acts of idiocy would be forgotten almost instantly, but the ubiquity of the internet means that it’s easier than ever to capture and share pictures of people who, for whatever reason, have done something really stupid. Maybe they’ve been doing some simple act wrong their whole life, or maybe they’ve really messed up the planning and design of something – it doesn’t matter. Their failure is now ours to enjoy.
1. This t-shirt’s slogan is awful
2. What a view!
3. This makes my blood boil
4. Some real professional advice
5. A good way to get arrested
6. This would make for an uncomfortable bathroom encounter
We have even more pants-on-head stupidity waiting for you over one page two, including a particularly pointless padlock, someone who really doesn’t get what bicycle stands are there for and a chair that literally no-one would ever want to sit on.
7. Someone doesn’t really understand what an acronym is
8. Someone else has missed the point of a padlock
9. What the hell?
10. The best sandwich ever made
11. Not the comfiest chair
12. Probably the laziest image I’ve seen all week
You think that was bad? We’ve saved the best/worst for last. Shoot over to page three for a good laugh at some of the most embarrassing examples ever, including a calendar that doesn’t make a lick of sense, a menu that’ll make you roll your eyes, and what might well be the worst shaving technique ever.
13. Somebody really wanted a three-day-weekend
14. So much for fire safety regulations
15. Whoever made this menu needs to learn how to pour a drink
16. This person really doesn’t get shaving
17. They just didn’t care
18. Hosing your car… in the rain
Pretty ridiculous right? To be honest, whenever it comes to people messing up and just getting it wrong, you can guarantee that there will be plenty of examples. So many in fact that we’ve got a whole other article just to accommodate them all. Don’t believe me? Then check out these 17 people who failed better than anyone had failed before.
