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.

Client Refuses to Understand What Broken Arm Entails

This guy gets a lot of belligerent customers, whether they're a private school upset about getting upgrades after a charity or a treasurer who doesn't understand numbers. In this case it's a client who seems to want him to outsource the work, but also not outsource it at the same time. Sounds like a fun person to do business with.

Business owner breaks his arm and tries dealing with a belligerent customer | Hi unfortunately won't be able build unit by 12th Jan have fracture my second favourite arm.

OSHA-Unapproved Moments Of Safety Failure

Anyone who's had to work with their hands has likely witnessed, or even low-key partaken in some safety fails that would make OSHA faint. These highly questionable and unsafely done jobs probably shouldn't be considered a point of pride, but people keep doing them, usually out of convenience. Here's a story of an incompetent manager who fired their only OSHA certified forklift operator and had it backfire.

Complaints That Made Customer Service Workers Snap

It's as if some people are truly born into this world with no shame. Take the guy who continually pestered the waitress about having an under-poured beer, was proven wrong, and then still had the shameless audacity to demand a refund from there. It takes a certain kind of nasty person to go out of their way to make someone working customer service detest their job more than they already (likely) do. 

Customer service workers describe the complaints that made them snap | flippy floppy @annikarainbow 00 Replying Keally22 Lmao red robin is worst. One time had woman complain her salad cold also had one customer tell they were "allergic ice brought them iced water and then they dumped water on floor

Man's Coworker Brings Him Meals Every Day, Wife Tells Coworker To Stop

Um, the fact that this guy's wife told his coworker to basically back off, and said coworker continued to bring meals after that, makes this a very unsettling situation, indeed. Not even unsettling as much as it's just plain old inappropriate. If anything, it seems like something far more extramarital could be afoot in this unfortunate "love triangle."

Man's coworker brings him meals every day, and his wife tells her to stop | AITA telling my husband's colleague stop bringing him meals she cooks everyday? Not hole F35 been married my husband Tom M32 three years recently moved new home about 4 months ago and he started his new position at private company and met new people who became friends with him outside work.

Hot damn dude, just because the one car is totaled doesn't mean you can go and total the rest. It's like this driver is trying to rustle up some job security by smashing into every other car on the street. What's amazing is after the first they just keep going.

Hotel Guest Refuses To Be Reasonable, Gets Kicked Out

Gotta love it when the customer gets rightfully fired. This particular hotel guest refused to be reasonable at all when it came to their checkout time. Even after the pregnant, exhausted concierge met them in the middle, they still proceeded to repeatedly complain and harass them. So, the concierge decided it was time for them to leave. Seems like the very fair and right move to make.

Manager Fires Third Of Team, Expects Them To Work Harder, It Backfires

This certainly brings to mind the old saying about how people don't necessarily leave bad jobs, but instead they leave bad managers. One bad manager can completely upend an otherwise enjoyable gig. Just picturing the look on this manager's face by the end of these employees' time with the company is enough to get the laughs rolling. Dude must've been beside himself.

Some people just dig their own holes when it comes to credit card conundrums. Seriously, every now and again the clueless credit card customer will seemingly craft a mess from a situation that otherwise would've been completely peaceful. Or, you've got that level of profound ignorance that results in a credit card customer calling to complain about "interest" that was actually a charge from Payless Shoes.

Dude Lives To Regret Staring At The Sun As A Kid

Man, this might get the anxiety flowing for anyone out there that ever did something similar to this as a kid. It's funny and unfortunate that as kids we're all just led along, sometimes down the wrong routes, due to our overwhelming curiosity. The lesson here is obviously to not stare at the sun! And if you have any kids, make sure they're not doing something similar to this!

Roommate Refuses To Pay Rent, Gets Schooled In Court

Man, nothing is worse than realizing you've ended up sharing a roof with a completely terrible roommate. In this case, we've got a horribly smug roommate who simply refused to pay their rent. Well, they clearly didn't anticipate the fallout that'd eventually ensue back in court. Hopefully they learned their lesson, and won't go and try to pull this ridiculous stunt again. 

Check out some more juicy roommate drama with this guy who outwitted his roommate by using the Pavlovian method.

Choosing Beggar Takes Lowballing To New Extreme

Some people are blinded by their own entitlement to such an extent that it's generally impossible to reason with them. This conversation was clearly destined to go nowhere from the start. The choosing beggar came out waving all the red flags. Also, the whole delivery demand situation was truly mind boggling.
