"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."

"Not My Job" Moments from The World's Slackers

In this busy world of ours, it's easy for things to slip through the cracks. Maybe a pole gets installed wrong here, or some road signage gets misspelled there. Many of us would look at these and say "we better fix that" but another great many of us say "good enough." The resulting impressively unprofessional "Not My Job" moments are indeed good enough, but in a different kind of way.

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.

This summer in NY, residents will have a chance to contribute to a publicly available exhibit in the Park Avenue Tunnel. Dreamt up by Mexican-Canadian artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, the installment uses lights and user created looped sounds to illuminate and serenade the full length of the tunnel. Passers-by can stop at a recording location in the middle of the tunnel to contribute her or his voice, which enters into a loop of about 90 other recordings while older recordings are phased out.
