25 Incompetent Moments of "Unique" Construction and Installation

Can it even be called a "living" room if there's no toilet in there? "Not my job" moments surround us, thanks to our tendency to not want to do our jobs correctly. Sure, that means a lot of way-too-low ceiling fans and stop signs that say "go" but do you think you could do better? Well you probably could. Thanks to these moments of professional inadequacy we can all feel like we'd do a better job.

Impressive "Not My Job" Moments From Masters Of Negligence

If only we could all be so inspired to measure once and not even cut, to never read the directions, and treat orders like the suggestions they really are. On that day, we could all truly be free. Free to live in a place where nothing really works as intended. But at least we wouldn't have to try very hard. And that world of "not my job" would be a beautiful one. Yes, the stop signs would face the wrong way and the toilet would drain directly into the downstairs bathtub, but it would be a "not my job" paradise.

"Not my Job" Moments of Less-Than-Professionalism

Okay, maybe that person wanted a toilet it in their kitchen, but probably not? It only takes seeing a few unprofessional "not my job" moments of failure to see that the world is absolutely brimming with examples of incompetent construction. It's a good reminder that no infrastructure is totally for sure, and that there could be anything going on with the pipes under your house.

"Not My Job" Moments of Questionable Professionalism

Most of us pride ourselves on being at least halfway decent at our jobs. Sometimes things get forgotten, done too quickly, or done by exactly the wrong person. What we get are "not my job" moments of quality unprofessionalism. The world is populated with crap infrastructure, stupid signs, and painted over spiders because somewhere along the line someone said, "eh, not my job."

Weird, Bad and Dumb Building Decisions

When it comes to construction work, it helps to have an idea of the end result in mind. Without that you get some impressively unprofessional "not my job" moments. There's pipes going every which way, extremely inconvenient toilets, and unsafe maneuvers being attempted all over the place.

Design Failures That Could Use Some Rethinking

Everyone wants to leave work early, but sometimes it takes a few design fails to get there. Ill conceived products, idiotic font choices, and some less-than-mastery of photoshop get people into some weird situations. Adding to that, the pesky thing with reality is that sometimes things don't fit where you want them to. Enough "not my job" moments of failure have proven that.

Weird and Self-Defeating Failures of Design

It's easy to overlook a potentially destructive error. Any one of us could have accidentally installed that toilet in the center of a room or chose Disney font for a funeral home. Okay, maybe most of us would haven't let that slide, but we all know someone who would. There are a fair share of design failures that deserve some blame.
