"Not My Job" Moments of Incompetent Construction

Jobs can be tedious and time consuming, and they can require a lot of annoying decision-making. When we decide to say "whatever, good enough" we leave ourselves open to creating some impressively unprofessional "not my job" moments. This world has a whole lot of stairs and doorways to nowhere.

Highly Questionable and Unsafely Done Jobs

When a job needs to get done, sometimes that need gives way to a wonderfully unprofessional "not my job" moment. And other times, a lack of critical thinking or need to get that job done quick results in a spectacular display of brash dudes engaging in risky maneuvers. Either way, you see some questionable stuff.

Weird, Bad and Dumb Building Decisions

When it comes to construction work, it helps to have an idea of the end result in mind. Without that you get some impressively unprofessional "not my job" moments. There's pipes going every which way, extremely inconvenient toilets, and unsafe maneuvers being attempted all over the place.

I guess we don't really know what dinosaurs actually sound like, so the sound designers of Jurassic Park had to get creative, but it is weird that it sounds this close to some guy with a power tool.

Home Builder Ruins Man's Dream House, Justice Ensues

It pays off to keep a calm and collected manner in the face of some alarming BS. This home builder almost ended up costing this man and his wife $13K. Fortunately he was able to right the wrongs by filing a lien, and got every penny back. Love to see the homeowner come out victorious in the end.

Impressively Unprofessional "Not My Job" Moments

Maybe the task is too difficult, or maybe you're just too difficult. "Not my job" moments encapsulate how the laziest among us deal with problems. These "solutions" may be majestically incompetent and ridiculously unprofessional "not my job" reactions to a hard task, but we can't say we haven't done similar things at some time in our lives.

Karen Parks In Construction Site Reserved Parking, Won't Move, Gets Blocked In

This case of a Karen spreading entitlement into the world, and complicating other people's days, centers on her being unwilling to move out of a construction site reserved parking spot. If Karen had simply listened and responded accordingly to the construction workers' requests for her to move, all of this could've been avoided. Instead, she ends up getting blocked in after making a series of absurd decisions.

It looks like this guy is doing his best to coexist with the band next door. This could be the start of an entirely new style of music. Too bad the name Nine Inch Nails is already taken.

Safety Fails That Would Make OSHA Faint

Some OSHA regulations seem sort of strict and ridiculous, but some really bad safety fails make you concede the point that some rules are there for a reason. It's non an enviable situation to be in to have a boss who wants you to do some sketchy-ass moves just so you can replace a light bulb, but we've been there.

Construction Worker Finds Himself Spooning Boss on First Day

From what we know about relationships, this would be more acceptable on the third day. Anyway, an equipment failure led to this construction worker having a very intimate first day with his new boss. For a more heroic construction story, here's one about an incompetent owner who mistakenly fired a special contractor and then came crawling back.

It's bold moves like these that convince people why women live longer than men.

Design Fails That Need Some Work

If you're into stupidly redundant construction decisions,  shirts that accidentally say "anus," or signs for businesses that also accidentally say "anus" than you've come to the right place. Let's be real, some design can use some extra thought, and some of it, like these magazine layout fails, are freakin awesome.

Stupid and dirty design fails.
