Worst Business Decisions People Have Ever Seen

Unfortunately a reality of being human is that there will come various times when your judgment is seemingly chucked right out the window. Hopefully, when this happens you don't find yourself in a position of power where you're being held responsible for the very health of a business. Or, maybe if you've already suffered a self-created business blunder of your own, then these fails will make you feel a bit better about whatever cringe from the past keeps you up at night.

Highly Literal Moments of Technical Accuracy

We all like to think of ourselves as basically intelligent people. Does that mean that we're completely right about everything all the time? No, not really. We have the capacity to be right about most things, but the reality of knowing things is that it takes a lot of research. Why be totally correct when with a lot less effort we can be technically accurate and not incorrect? Empirical accuracy takes a second seat to the convenience of technically correct cleverness.

Guy Complains About Utilities Bill, Claims To Not Use Water, Takes Showers

Seriously, what was this guy on about? He goes out of his way to call the collections department at his water company, and then goes on an inspired riff about how he's definitely not using water, but also managed to take showers and use the toilet. Buddy, you did yourself in on whatever money-saving scam that you were trying to carry out, right there. I just wonder what was racing through his mind when he realized (hopefully) that he was not about to get any money knocked off his water bill.

Best Euphemisms For Telling People They're Clueless

We've all had our run-ins with people that are in glaring need of guidance in this world. It's as if they managed to fall through the cracks when it comes to every bit of common sense. Well, some people hit their breaking points when it comes to the amount of pure and unadulterated ignorance that they'll put up with. From there, it can be a game of trying to call someone out for being clueless, but not wanting to be completely transparent in the process.

Company Continually Demands Password, Tech Support Says No, Wild Revelation Ensues

Hopefully at least someone involved in these wild series of conversations felt nothing short of immense gratitude over the fact that their business wasn't completely destroyed by a user that had the wherewithal to try out the password assigned to every user. It sounds like the company got by purely because nobody ever honestly thought that the password could be so obvious. Somehow, that whole approach to security seems like it can work sometimes. Just a bit of a gamble. For another ridiculous tech support tale check out the time that a customer thought that the internet runs on magic

A company continually demands their password from tech support, tech support can't comply, wild revelation ensues.

Proof Kids Are Dumb As Rocks And Weird As Heck

If you knew anyone who did even one thing an 8 year old does on a regular basis, you'd kick them out of your friend group instantly. A grown man who thirsts for bleach and poops his pants when he doesn't get mac and cheese? It's no wonder "childish" is an insult for adults. Kids are just weird and dumb people. We know, because we remember.

Dad Jokes That Took Things Father Than Ever

Dad jokes. Are the good? Are they funny even in the slightest? Do they have literally any value whatsoever? Dads sure seem to think so. The torrent of dumb puns and literalisms spilling forth from a dad when he's really on fire is something to behold. Again, not something exactly great to behold. But definitely something to behold.

Tasty-Looking Temptations That Look Like Food But Aren't

We scoff when dogs and babies try to eat dice and drink anti-freeze, but the thing is, it's not like they're too far off. There are tons of inedible objects that look like tasty food out there. There are rocks that look like cake, mops that look like soup and entire cliffsides that look like delectable steak dinners. May our consciences guide us away from this tempting stuff that looks like food but isn't.

Design Fails That Put Things In Perspective

Human beings are problem solvers. But sometimes when we're designing a solution for one thing, our design failure results in a brand new problem. With something as simple as word placement or overzealous design, a sign for a window company can turn into a 40 foot long wiener. Anyway, some design fails deserve some blame.

Guy "Builds Computers" For A Living, Completely Destroys Cheap Computer

If there's one major takeaway from this tech support tale it's that just because you can build a PC doesn't necessarily mean that you know how the computer works. One can only begin to imagine the amount of hot flashes of embarrassment that this dude must've been bogged down by after realizing that he'd literally engineered the downfall of his cheap brand name computer. Like, he literally just created destruction where there otherwise would've been none to have been had. Oh well. You live and you learn. For another ridiculous tech support tale, check out this CEO who thought his computer had been hacked, and then proceeded to learn how a computer works
