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.

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.

Misfortune Monday: The World is Merciless

We need no more proof that misfortune abounds and life is uncertain, but life just keeps giving us more evidence every day. Cars roll into ditches, lasagnas get flung, and dogs try to eat bees. There's no stopping the misfortune that can happen in our lives, and if one thing is for sure, life has an incredible way of making up new ways for things to go wrong.

Guy Who Didn't Work at Walmart Fired by Walmart Manager

This random dude wearing a blue shirt had a run-in with a manager who was eager to fire someone she didn't even recognize. This one's kind of the opposite of this chef who was hired by a law firm just to foil the security guard. Employees of huge retail chains have to put up with some strange problems at work, like this guy who got hired and through a series of mistakes, never did anything but still stayed employed for months

Companies "Improved" Products That Are Objectively Worse

Because we're human beings, we're entitled to our hyper judgmental rejection of anything new and "improved." Sometimes companies work hard to make their beloved products legitimately cheaper and inferior, especially in the case of Cadbury Eggs. Those used to be great. Now everything is too marked up for its own good. Sometimes things just change with the times, like cars not having CD players anymore, which is inarguably worse. Who the hell wants to buy a digital copy of Hybrid Theory when there's a perfectly good physical copy of it somewhere around here.

Misfortune Monday: Life Is Uncertain

For every small thing that can go right, there's about a hundred things that can go wrong. Trampolines get blown away, septic tanks explode, cars drive into lakes, and frisbees get caught in trees like way up there. We know that the world is unpredictable but that doesn't stop us from continuing to try to get things right. That said, bad things just keep happening.

"Not My Job" Moments of Unprofessional Failure

We've all had some kind of our own "not my job" moments before. It could have been sweeping a little too much dirt under a rug or cleverly not seeing a whole bunch of stuff that needed doing. A lot of the time it's just doing what someone told you to do even though you know it's wrong. The problem with "not my job" moments of dubious unprofessionalism is that they very frequently get found out.

Unwanted Moments of Failure and Chaos

As we trudge through life, we're met with almost too many flavors of chaos. It seems like anything can go wrong down to the last minute detail. Ovens can shatter, cans of paint can explode all over your car, and pipes can freeze. A crowbar can go through your tire, a tree can fall into your kitchen, and your dog can eat a bee. The moments of failure and chaos never end, but luckily they don't happen all at once.

Design Fail Gives Guy's Game Crazy Amounts of Dislikes

To be clear, the gameplay itself didn't warrant all the dislikes, but a very small design fail gave this game developer a big shock. It should provide at least a little peace of mind to find out that you didn't create something as universally hated as you thought. For some game related humor, here are some gaming memes.
