Blunderous Foibles of The English Language

If there's anything to learn from all the regrettable and dumb spelling fails we see on a daily basis, it's that absolutely no one is immune to really stupid mistakes when it comes to their mastery of the English language. Non-native speakers and people who have been speaking English their whole lives all succumb to the fun and frustration of the English language, and at this rate it looks like there's no way to stop it.

Guy Accidentally Eats $420 Worth of Beef

Thinking he was making the more affordable choice, this guy accidentally ate himself a few hundred dollar's worth of high-end beef. Without the knowledge that this is how restaurants price this stuff, we would probably have made the same mistake. For some other things to not buy, here are absurdly overpriced things people have seen.

"Not My Job" Moments of Professional Incompetence

It's rare to be in love with your job, so naturally, most of us are going to try and get by with the absolute bare minimum. Usually it works out, but sometimes the cracks begin to show and the "not my job" moments start to pile up. Oh, we'd all love to to make everything look perfect, lined up, spelled right and on point but frankly, that's not my job.

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.

Dude Shows Up At Wrong House for Party, Looks Like Weirdo

It's pretty much every grown man's worst fear to look like an absolute creep. Like, in the top ten "things guys shouldn't shouldn't do" at least numbers 4 through 8 are some variation of "make it seem like you're friends with stranger's kids." It goes without saying why that precedent is in place, but there are good reasons for it. This guy had the less than comfortable experience of accidentally talking his way into a random girl's house. Interesting choice from the mom to just let the whole situation play out just to watch him suffer, but alright. Small errors can snowball out of control, like this guy who accidentally ate 420 dollars worth of beef.

Stupid Design Failures That Deserve Criticism

No matter how confident you are, it's always a good idea to get a second eyes on a project. "Hey, what's with this stairway to nowhere" they might say. Or "did you realize that when your van door slides open it condenses Butter Salesman into Butt Man." There are more stupid design failures out there than you could shake a stick at, and even that stick might have some fatal flaws. These design failures deserve some blame.

Scottish Man Applies to Job in Wrong Edinburgh

People are people and we make mistakes. Here's a dude who thought he was applying to a job in his own city, but low and behold, the listing was extremely easy to misread. For some more mix-ups, here's a guy who thought a date was a job interview and here's a woman who thought an office was a dog sitting company for months.

Those tricky floor-fountains every city center seems to have are the bane of every dry, non-observant pedestrian. It only makes sense they'd go off at even less opportune times, like during an outdoor market for instance. It's a little reassuring that everyone has an off day, even the person with the keys to the fountain.

These guys had one fatal flaw in their elevator transportation plan: when elevators go up or down, the rest of the world doesn't. It's staggering to think that anyone would overlook that fact, but man are the consequences pretty much instant. It's good to learn.

Unfortunate Moments of Failure and Chaos

As much as we'd like the forces of darkness and confusion to leave us alone, mistakes, failures, errors and blunders still find their way into our lives. It's not a graceful life; one of dropped phones and exploded pipes, but it is the one we are given. All there is to do is take it in stride and sometimes expect that the world is merciless.

Misfortune Monday: Chaos is Unavoidable

We do our best to avoid accidents, but the world makes a pretty clear point that chaos is inevitable. Pipes will explode, trees will fall on cars, and glass tables will shatter unexpectedly. The world is merciless, but luckily bad things happen to just about everyone, so we can all gripe in frustration over the stupid things that happen to us.

"You Had One Job" Moments of Occupational Incompetence

People make a lot of mistakes while working, and that's even when they're doing things for ourselves. Throw in a third party or having to do something on behalf of a boss you don't like, and things start to not get done at a fantastic rate. Thanks to these unprofessional circumstances, we have just tons of instances of incompetent construction as well as "not my job" moments of quality unprofessionalism.

Mom Lets Black Widows Hatch, They Escape

In an extremely ill-advised parenting move, this mom kept a black widow spider and its egg sack in what she thought was a sealed container. It doesn't take much thought to realize why this is probably not a good idea. In fact, in may even be a bad idea. A really bad idea. For something slightly less bad but still about spiders, here's a tumblr thread on how wolf spiders run cranberry bogs.

An accidental sudden lurch forward was all it took for this dude's bike to turn over at the second-to-worst-possible time. If only the bike was another few inches away it could have been fine. Could he have pulled it out of the way? Maybe. Maybe it's also understandable to not want to be in that situation with a train barreling straight at you.
