Unprofessional Times People Failed at Their One Job

We've all witnessed some majestically unprofessional "not my job" moments. Maybe someone at work was running out of time, money or patience and just went with what they had. Those moments can result in stairways to nowhere, cans of peaches that magically contain peas, and countless other mistakes resulting in people and things failing at their one job.

Very Public Computer Errors

Here are some excruciating moments of tech support gore for some more things not working as they should.

For some more mistakes here are some classic facepalm moments of dumbness.

Brain Farts So Bad They Could Clear a Room

It's not really your fault, most people have so much to focus on on a daily basis that sometimes we don't put enough effort into our own speech. But still, switching up a few letters can mean the difference between saying you've just been hit in the shins and you've just shit in the bins.

Twitter Users Share The Worst Things They've Ever Spilled In Their Cars

Musician Jason Isbell took to twitter to ask people about the most devastating thing they've ever spilled in their car. When you think about it, a car is one of the most stressful places to spill something, and should be chalked up as one of life's more disappointing moments. Everything in a car is usually covered in fabric, you're forced to sit in it, and if it's something that smells, good luck sitting in a tin can filled with old burger or whatever.
