Inconvenient, Weird and Stupid Interior Design

Building a house is hard. Or at least it seems like it when you see all the "not my job" moments of dubious professionalism that go into building anything. People really have a knack for putting toilets in inconvenient places. Who knows, maybe it's nice to have a toilet at the top of the stairs? It becomes a place to survey your domain. Either way, there's no project that goes on without a few moments of professional ineptitude.

"Not My Job" Moments Of Effortless Unprofessionalism

Work is a necessary evil. Doing stuff basically sucks, but it's better than being hungry, wet and cold all the time, so the choice is pretty obvious. Naturally, most of us try to get through the day employing as little effort as possible, and sadly for some of us it really shows. "Not my job" moments of failure fill up our streets and living spaces, providing at least some ironic consolation that everyone, not just you, is doing the bare minimum. These moments of dubious professionalism are far from our best work, and it shows.

"Not My Job" Moments Of Unprofessional Failure

Sure, doing your job the right way is fine and all, but you save some much time and energy by doing things completely improperly.

These "not my job" moments of dubious professionalism are making it easier for some of us.

Bricklayer Maintains Self-Esteem In Spite Of Terrible Boss

Jerry sounds like a real gem of a human being. There's something plain old admirable about anyone who can maintain their self-esteem in spite of difficult, if not outright miserable external circumstances. Jerry was unfazed by all the BS regularly being thrown his way. And eventually he got the karmic reward he so deserved. Love how even when he ended up succeeding while his old boss failed, he still didn't take the opportunity to dance in glee around their messy debacle.

Fancy Brickwork To Gawk At And Feel Unskilled Over

We don't really think about bricks. In a world where new buildings are steel and transparent, the brick has become a symbol of rugged pragmatism of days past. But in the right hands, a few bricks can become a highly aesthetic thing of satisfying perfection. They're graceful. Very unlike these "not my job" moments of incompetent construction or these OSHA safety failures.

Safety Failures That OSHA Wouldn't Be Too Happy About

Anyone in an even somewhat physical job has no doubt been told by their boss to pull some death-defying maneuvers. That's not a good thing, but it's also pretty amazing that there aren't more horrible accidents than there already are. We live in a world full of safety failures that would make OSHA faint. Whether it's an over-creative use of ladders or some bone-headed work with the circular saw, there's just tons of OSHA-unapproved moments of safety failure.

Couple Hangs Shelf, Discovers Whole House Is Crooked

Maybe this couple's story about their unfortunate discovery will hit close to home for some folks. The reality is that there are a whole lot of apartments and homes out there that were built by folks that couldn't be bothered to do their one job correctly. So it goes, sometimes. Ignorance is really bliss though. The last thing you want to do is hang that shelf or picture on the wall and come to learn that your whole humble abode is just a little bit off kilter.

Weird, Bad and Absurd DIY Situations

A whole lot of us have looked at some fixture in our home and thought "man, it wouldn't be too difficult to gussie that thing up a bit. I could borrow Doug's saw and crack that baby open. Maybe throw some extra pipes in there. Yeah, I could have a super toilet." Most of us who have that thought realize very soon after that it's not as easy we might think it is. The rest of us go for it and end up with some low budget DIY engineering solutions.
