Inconvenient, Weird and Stupid Interior Design

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.

Not researching a company before a job interview with them is almost always going to backfire in one way or another. Even a little bit of homework before the moment of the job interview arrives can benefit you immensely. With that being said, this baker ended up enduring quite the awkward, humbling moment when they didn't do their due diligence on a bakery before sitting down for the interview. That lavender will get ya, man.

Error Grants Person Free Netflix for Years

What do you do when a company makes a mistake and then undermines all of your best efforts to undo that mistake? Apparently you give up and say "fine, I'm watching movies if no one is gonna complain about this." And that movie watching went on for the better part of a decade, so not bad. For some more company shenanigans, here's a dude who got hounded for trivial debt and ended up paying them a dime.

People Trying Their Best To Sell Their Mirrors

How does one sell a mirror without getting themselves in the shot? It's pretty difficult. And even the most nonchalant attempts still have a weird disembodied hand snapping a photo with a phone. At least they're just selling mirrors, which pale in comparison to the other weird and stupid junk people try to sell online all the time.

Technically Correct Moments That Aren't Totally Wrong

Being actually right is a hard and thankless job. There are not enough hours in the day to burden ourselves with factual correctness, so sometimes we have to settle for technical and literally accurate options to get us through that day. Technically accurate moments let us enjoy the fruits of being not wrong, but with the time saving nature of not having to be totally right.

Clever Employee Blacklists Rude Customer

Jack had enough of this customer's rude behavior. So, he enacted a calculated and very satisfying petty revenge. The best part of this petty revenge is the moment that the customer goes to another store, and realizes their card isn't going to work there either. They underestimated Jack's capacity for pettiness, and definitely paid the price for that.

Those Sunfishes are something else, man. They look like they're literally not of this dimension. Or like some aliens just dropped them off on planet earth to see how they'd fare. Also, can we take a moment of appreciation for the awesome amount of chill that sunfishes have.

Weird, Intriguing and Not Great DIY Projects

Creativity is a good thing, but sometimes our creativity gets in the way of our sense and we end up making impressive creations of questionable taste. And that's not to say this stuff is useless either. People create effective low budget DIY solutions for their problems all the time. It's just that some ideas in practice tend to lack...uh... grace.
