"Not My Job" Moments of Unprofessional Construction

It should come as no surprise that building stuff is hard. Or at least there are a whole lot of wrong ways to do it. Those ways reveal themselves in "not my job" moments of incompetent construction. How hard is it to build a functional set of stairs, do proper electrical or put in a window? These people wouldn't know because it's not their job.

Misguided Safety Failures That OSHA Would Disapprove Of

Things need to get done, but sometimes we take shortcuts that result in safety failures of OSHA-defying boldness. Walk around any job site for any length of time and there's bound to be cartoonish moments of dudes climbing into running woodchippers, hanging off dangerous ledges with no safety gear, and strapping together ladders into a horrible yet effective "superladder." Sadly, time is money, and that time gets turned into unsafe maneuvers that would make OSHA cringe. It just sucks to have to be the schlub risking their knees, back and fingers for 12 dollars an hour.

Construction Crew Boss Takes Revenge On Vandals With Indestructible Stake

There are a surprising number of people out there that decide to take revenge on inconsiderate, downright belligerent drivers with indestructible mailboxes. In this case though, we have a construction crew boss who hit his breaking point when it came to the amount of nonsense and criminal behavior that he'd put up with from some vandals.

Laughable and Dumb Building Maneuvers In Need of A Pro

Sure, you're allowed some creative license when it comes to designing a living space, but some of the unprofessional "not my job" moments and low budget solutions involved in building that place can get to be a bit much. It's hard to choose between having a permanent kitchen toilet or a permanent unmovable rafter ladder. What about a repurposed jug door handle? No?

"Not My Job" Moments of Professional Incompetence

It's rare to be in love with your job, so naturally, most of us are going to try and get by with the absolute bare minimum. Usually it works out, but sometimes the cracks begin to show and the "not my job" moments start to pile up. Oh, we'd all love to to make everything look perfect, lined up, spelled right and on point but frankly, that's not my job.

"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.

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.

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

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.
