Fails and Mistakes That Were Someone's One Job

There are a lot of reasons for failure at someone's one job. Sometimes it's negligence or laziness. Sometimes someone is in the process of learning something new. Sometimes an otherwise competent person has to do the same job with no resources and in a quarter of the time. Sometimes it's the profound ability to ignore common sense. That one is our favorite. It's the main force behind design fails that didn't go as planned.

Design Failures That Didn't Work Out

In a world where people are constantly asked to make new things, some of those things are not going to work out exactly as planned. That means we get some design fails that were someone's one job. Sometimes it's an accidentally filthy sign, sometimes it's a toilet that drains to nowhere. There are infinite ways to end up with design failures that don't quite cut it.

Design Fail Gives Guy's Game Crazy Amounts of Dislikes

To be clear, the gameplay itself didn't warrant all the dislikes, but a very small design fail gave this game developer a big shock. It should provide at least a little peace of mind to find out that you didn't create something as universally hated as you thought. For some game related humor, here are some gaming memes.

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.

Design Failures That Could Use Some Work

Designing stuff is hard, and it's conducive to all kinds of design fails. If it's a sign, you have to check for embarrassing spelling mistakes. If it's a building, you have to make sure there aren't any pipes going straight through any staircases. People are pretty good at their jobs in general, but there are still a lot of impressively unprofessional "not my job" moments.

Design Failures that Were Someone's Fault

For just about any project, it can help to get a second set of eyes on the thing. Y'know, just in case there was some small, dumb design fail you could have overlooked. Something like making an entire basketball court out of sand, or having a big giant staircase that goes nowhere. There are a lot of wonderful design fails out there that could have been avoided.

Bad Choices That Resulted In Undeniable Fails

It's like a real life version of The Sims. There's no denying it; these were some bad choices that resulted in ultimate failure. Life's all about those attempts, and if you're aware enough, you learn from the mistakes that can result from said attempts. We're hoping that the masterminds behind these bad choices were able to reflect, and learn from their handful of mistakes.

Design Fails that Could've Been Avoided

Work is often annoying, and many of us try to get by with the minimum amount of effort. Usually, that's fine, but sometimes it can backfire in the form of design fails that were someone's one job. Frankly, it's kind of awesome when a logo accidentally looks like a butt so good work everyone, keep it up with the impressively unprofessional "not my job" moments.

Inventions That Work Too Well to be Improved Upon

Sometimes someone comes up with a design so simple, elegant and effective that it becomes the de facto item for that use in perpetuity. It must feel good to have created something that does something the best. In the other direction, here are inventions that are now used for something other than their intended purpose.

Stupid, Ridiculous and Weird Design

You can't exactly blame people for trying new things, but you can if it's obviously a design fail. Every day people push the boundaries with wildly tacky shirts, deliberate stains, poor building planning, and misguided but persistent creativity. At least it seems like for most of these someone was trying something new. On the other side there are straight up stupid design fails that someone thought were fine.

Dumb Design Fails from The Lazy and Incompetent

People are asked to make a lot of things, but sometimes we're not up to the challenge. This leads to some prime fails of people not doing their jobs correctly. Words get left off of shirts, signs stop making sense, and people start building pathways to nowhere. We're not mad, we're actually pretty stoked about it.

Stupid Design Fails That Someone Thought Were Fine

And with the resounding deflating sound of a "yeah sure that'll do" a design fail is born. It's good that people build first and think later, or else there wouldn't be so many design fails that were someone's one job. Where would we be without prime fails from people not doing their jobs correctly? Well, probably in a more efficient and effective world; but it wouldn't be quite as much fun.

Dumb Design Fails that were Someone's One Job

If you've felt like you've done a bad job with something before, don't feel bad, cause someone has most likely done worse. You probably didn't include an inconspicuous "shart" in a sign, and you probably haven't buried a fire hydrant in cement. There are too many impressively unprofessional "not my job" moments and sloppy design fails out there to even compete.

Design Fails that were Someone's One Job

If you're a perfectionist, then it might feel like a relief that people out here are doing such unprofessional jobs of just about everything. That, or it just makes you fear for a world that's at the whims of such majestic incompetence. However you feel about it, there are still people installing utility poles in the middle of streets and designing confusing and unusable stuff every day.
