Sprinklers spray right into garbage cans, shirts say the wrong thing, and people make ironic mistakes. People's laziness can result in some impressively unprofessional "not my job" moments.

Stupid Design Fails That Someone Thought Were Fine

And with the resounding deflating sound of a "yeah sure that'll do" a design fail is born. It's good that people build first and think later, or else there wouldn't be so many design fails that were someone's one job. Where would we be without prime fails from people not doing their jobs correctly? Well, probably in a more efficient and effective world; but it wouldn't be quite as much fun.

Fails and Mistakes That Were Someone's One Job

There are a lot of reasons for failure at someone's one job. Sometimes it's negligence or laziness. Sometimes someone is in the process of learning something new. Sometimes an otherwise competent person has to do the same job with no resources and in a quarter of the time. Sometimes it's the profound ability to ignore common sense. That one is our favorite. It's the main force behind design fails that didn't go as planned.
