20+ DIY projects that never should've seen the light of day

All of these DIY projects started with the best intentions! A person saw a problem or felt inspired, and started their craft. Too bad that doing a DIY project isn't always as easy as it looks. No matter how well you follow that YouTube video or set of directions, some things need to be left to the pros. While I'm a big fan of the Spaghetti-O Furby and other art projects , it's harder to love all of the wild car DIYs (as you can see below). For example, one person built a fan into the roof of th…

Neighbor gets ultimate revenge on entitled construction workers who constantly break noise rules and steal electricity from his outdoor outlets: 'Cue the whining and complaining'

No one likes the sound of construction in their neighborhood. Sure, it's necessary, but after a long day of work, the last thing you want to come home to is constant hammering and beeping from loud construction equipment. Even worse, when all that noise wakes you up in the morning before you have the chance to snooze your alarm. This guy lives in an area where there are rules for noise. Noise is allowed from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and there is no construction or industrial noise on Sundays. Seven in…

I distinctly remember touring the so-called “perfect apartment” and informing my roommate t…

Construction worker offers former micromanager a job, setting the record straight and teaching him a valuable lesson in humility despite of the claim that he will ‘never amount to anything’

There will be those who want you to fail and those who want you to succeed. However, regardless of who is around you, you should constantly strive to be the best version of yourself. The story below tells the tale of a resentful construction worker. Despite all the challenges, the Original Poster (OP) started his own construction company. To put things in perspective, during his undergraduate years, OP looked for a part-time job that could help him balance his academics and become somewhat fina…

homeowner home house property property-lines line land land-owner owner reddit petty revenge county payback deserves free

Property owner devises a plan to get back at the county after they tried to steal 3,750 square feet of his land: ‘They won’t be extending the road after all'

Property lines are sacred. Even in the frontier days when cowboys were hijacking their neighbor's land over a sack of potatoes, the two most important things about land ownership were that you had your name on the deed and that the property lines were drawn extra dark on the map.

'You dug that hole yourself’: Contractor works on resident's property without permission, creating damage that costs $100,000

Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. So if one messes things up, one is probably going to have to face the consequences, that is simply how the world works, although there aren't many people who actually live by those rules. Many people in this Reddit story had to face the consequences of their actions, and not all of them did such a great job. First, there was the terrible neighbor who started the whole drama simply by being a terrible neighbor, but also because he ordered a contra…

'The exec told me that the seal was fine': Construction boss insists on running broken cement mixer, gets humiliated and covered in dust

Leave it to an executive with no common sense to make a huge mess. As so often happens, this higher-up wanted to prove that they were the head boss in charge, and made everyone else's days a little worse for it. Our society would be nowhere without the folks who work in construction. Concrete is in just about every modern building, not to mention sidewalks and roads. Construction crews can make quick work out of this. In just a few hours, your company can go from having a broken slab of concret…

'We don't need to check the design': Builder tries to warn fuel company that their blueprints were flawed, they tell him to 'get building'

This company has never heard of the phrase “Measure twice, cut once.” Instead, they're perfectly fine with winging it, and then starting all over again. Experienced craftsmen know that there's no such thing as being too careful. You can always measure one more time, or check that your equipment's working one more time. It's better to spend a few extra seconds double-checking your work, rather than spending days or weeks redoing a part of your project. U/thornae had a cool malicious compliance s…

‘I need you here now’: Client demands technicians come in without extra pay on weekend

‘I need you here now’: Client demands technicians come in without extra pay on weekend

When a client makes an oversight, the service provider usually swoops in and saves the day, but this time, being the hero meant coming in on a Saturday… And nobody wants to come in on a Saturday! Unless they're getting paid a million bucks, and that definitely wasn't the case here. The client worked at a medical center, and had had some builders come in and do some work. OP, the person providing service for the client (who we'll call CB) was setting up some equipment for them. CB forgot to call…

'Every time he called... the call was recorded': Contractor loses thousands of dollars to construction company, then takes a different job with them and plays the long game

Taking a peek into the life of a contractor as he works to build a restaurant is so interesting. If you don't work as a contractor, you'd have no idea what goes on while people are building a restaurant. By reading this story, you get a good insight into the process: for example, it's not just one group of people who are in charge. Instead, there is a general contractor who is responsible for managing subcontractors who work under the GC's supervision. There might be one person who's in charge…
