Clear Signs That Kids Are Weird and Stupid

Let it be no surprise that kids are weird and dumb. Not only do they not know things and have bad ideas, they can also be extremely creepy and weird. We remember all the stupid and psychopathic crap we did as kids, and acknowledge that it's best to keep your distance from this unaccountable and idiotic group of people. There are more than enough moments to confirm that kids are weird and dumb.

Family Member Expects Earrings Back From Years Ago, Reality Check Ensues

It seems as if this world will never be in short supply of entitled choosing beggars with their audacious demands. Just because you're someone's family member too doesn't mean that you're off the hook when it comes to irrational demands that never should've been made in the first place. This person's family member for instance expects to be able to get their earrings back that they gave away 10 years ago. I mean, come on with all that noise. You've got to be kidding me.

Design Failures that Deserve Some Blame

Designing things is hard, and people aren't very good at it. Whether it's an accidentally creepy sign or some painful looking stairs, we make things that probably could have used some extra input. This world is full of design failures that were someone's fault. For some more professional buffoonery, here are some "you had one job" moments of occupational incompetence.

"Not My Job" Moments of Unimpressive Professionalism

People want work done fast, cheap and well. Unfortunately, all three of those are never going to happen at the same time. There are some impressively unprofessional "not my job" moments that slip through when no one's looking. But hey, it's better to get the job done-ish than not done at all, right?

"Not My Job" Moments of Dubious Professionalism

It's easy to say that "straight line painter" isn't in your job description as a "line painter," but that decision makes for some very creative looking roads. These impressively unprofessional "not my job" moments may be poor excuses for well done tasks, but they're definitely spectacles. If nothing else, these "not my job" moments sure got the job done-ish.

Misfortune Monday: The Many Layers of "Oops"

Life is weird. Things seem to be going fine, and then all of a sudden, through no fault of your own, or some fault of your own, or pretty much exclusively fault of your own, misfortune just keeps happening. Bridges get destroyed, crock pots full of chili get exploded all over cars, and frisbees get stuck in Fabergé eggs. It's too much to taste all the flavors of chaos.

"Not My Job" Moments of Questionable Professionalism

Most of us pride ourselves on being at least halfway decent at our jobs. Sometimes things get forgotten, done too quickly, or done by exactly the wrong person. What we get are "not my job" moments of quality unprofessionalism. The world is populated with crap infrastructure, stupid signs, and painted over spiders because somewhere along the line someone said, "eh, not my job."

Really Bad Cakes that Deserve to Be Destroyed

They say practice makes perfect, but why even go through the trouble of releasing more of these cake abominations into the world? It's like they tried to recreate everyone's favorite characters out of ear wax and wet newspaper. Instead of baking more, it might be best to find a big hole and bury them deep. For some more food abominations, here are cursed foods from lucifer's larder.

Entitled Individuals and Their Nonstop Demands

It feels weird knowing there are bosses out there who will want you to pay them for the opportunity to work. Or that there are customers out there who will try to return shoes three years after they bought them. It's rare stuff, but boy is it hard to wrap your head around entitled people and their demanding boldness.

"Not My Job" Moments from The World's Slackers

Many of us would look at these and say "we better fix that" but another great many of us say "good enough." The resulting impressively unprofessional "Not My Job" moments are indeed good enough, but in a different kind of way.

Nope, not even close, but that's okay. We'd be nowhere without the world proving time and time again that it is prone to frequent bouts of complete failure.

The worst thing to see is a rule that only serves to end up hurting someone else. This poor elderly lady just needed the extra help, but the inspector had to go and have zero chill, and complicate that process.
