Unsafe Coworker Who Can't Be Bothered on Phone Gets Caught on Phone

This one seems obvious. Anyone who's worked around heavy machinery knows how important it is to be mindful of  your surroundings, yet there's still coworkers out there who can't be bothered to understand how hazardous their own working conditions are. Some coworkers just don't get it, like this Karen who didn't check her email for years. Sometimes it's customers who are a nightmare, like this lady who tried to get a free washer and didn't get her way.

Power-tripping Manager Gets Most of Her Store Fired, Then Herself

Incompetent power-tripping managers can get themselves into some really stupid situations, like this boss who demanded a special contractor be on call 24/7 and ended up with a $10K invoice. In lucky situations, incompetent managers get called on their BS and have to actually deal with the ramifications of their actions, rather than pushing the burden onto their employees.

Dumb manager gets a bunch of employees fired.

Manager Doesn't Know What A Computer Is, Throws Away Forty of Them

People have a pretty abysmal knowledge of computers, but almost never so bad that they try to have them removed from their office. IT people have to be very patient when a customer's computer won't work. Sometimes people don't know what a power button is. We don't envy people who have to deal with this level of ignorance on a daily basis.

A stupid boss doesn't know what computers are and asks to have them removed from the office.

Dealership Employee Drives the Life Out of a Car to Spite His Awful Manager

The car didn't have a ton of life remaining, but this guy made sure his boss knew he was getting a bad deal. We've had bad bosses before, so it's cathartic to see incompetent managers get the short end like this boss who stupidly ordered a contractor to go on call and ended up with a $10,000 invoice or this guy who hired a thief as his replacement.

Dealership employee has an abusive boss so he drives a traded car until it's broken.

Guy Beats BS Healthcare Bureaucracy by Sending 300+ Emails

After being put on a waiting list for way too long and seeing his wife blown off by incompetent healthcare administration, this guy took the matter into his own hands, with some creative emailing and the use of telemarketing software. The world is full of people complying maliciously, like this IT guy who came up with a masterful plan after being told he had to work on vacation.

The Dunning-Kruger Effect is the relatively simple observation that people lacking in knowledge on a certain subject will overestimate their own abilities related to that subject. Or rather, stupid people aren't smart enough to know they're dumb. Basically, the less you know, the more you think you know. This can have real problems when it comes to things like public health and representative democracy. 

They say it effects everybody, so who knows how much we just glossed over writing this description.

Guy’s Bat-Infested Attic Turns Into Comedy of Errors

Apparently getting bats out of your house isn't as simple as spraying some poison around or throwing up a bat signal. Dave Hill found out first hand that bat removal is more of an art than a science. Ever get too "behind-the-scenes" and realize that no one really knows what they're doing, like ever?
