Unprofessional "Not My Job" Moments of Failure

Most of us will do whatever it takes to avoid doing our actual jobs. For some, it's almost a challenge to see how much we can get away with not doing. Our drive to not do any actual work leads to some impressive "not my job" moments of professional ineptitude. Toilets get installed sideways, billboards get crammed with typos, and things go awry in these "not my job" moments of professional failure.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson made a lot of people (and presumably ducks, cats and bedbugs) angry with a much less than true fact about sex and evolution.  His claim, that sex doesn't hurt any species had many Twitter users jumping to correct him.

And you might be thinking, he's just trying to be positive about human sexuality and say, in his own pseudoscientific way that it's healthy and painless for humans. But... that's actually not true either:

Sure, he's a scientist but cut him some slack, he's not that kind of scientist. He studied astrophysics, how's he supposed to check his facts at all before Tweeting about biology?

The Smoking Gun tells the story of this man who siphoned gas from a cop car, had his girlfriend take a picture, and uploaded the picture to Facebook. The police found the picture and promptly arrested him on charges of a misdemeanor. He was arraigned in court yesterday.
