"Not My Job" Moments Of Effortless Unprofessionalism

Work is a necessary evil. Doing stuff basically sucks, but it's better than being hungry, wet and cold all the time, so the choice is pretty obvious. Naturally, most of us try to get through the day employing as little effort as possible, and sadly for some of us it really shows. "Not my job" moments of failure fill up our streets and living spaces, providing at least some ironic consolation that everyone, not just you, is doing the bare minimum. These moments of dubious professionalism are far from our best work, and it shows.

Animals Who Shamelessly Wrecked Stuff

In the case of some pets like Prancer, the most irredeemable dog, you're likely to get as much remorse as you would a rock. Some dogs probably think they're doing you a favor by eating the door so you can be together. Maybe dogs who get stuck in things are a little more emotionally invested in you if they need your help, but they're also pretty good at making it seem like they don't really care.
