Design Failures that Deserve Some Blame

Designing things is hard, and people aren't very good at it. Whether it's an accidentally creepy sign or some painful looking stairs, we make things that probably could have used some extra input. This world is full of design failures that were someone's fault. For some more professional buffoonery, here are some "you had one job" moments of occupational incompetence.

Spelling Failures That Hurt a Little

Spelling is a skill, and enough time without practice can lead people down some weird rabbit holes of how letters are supposed to fit together. Sometimes watching someone write out their thoughts is enough to realize that they don't have a terrific grasp on what words mean. Either way, in life we come across a lot of spelling fails that deserve a harsh sentence.

Delusional Employee Defends Spelling of "Hampster"

Just cause you want something to be spelled a certain way doesn't mean it's actually spelled that way. It's something many creators of spelling fails never seem to learn. In this case she went and doubled down rather than deferring to the whole world telling her that there's no "P" in "Hamster." Is that the hill anyone wants to die on?

Spelling Fails That Mangled Words Up Nice

You can't sit down and make everyone spell the way you'd like them to, so you're just kind of left with seeing the mistakes where they arise and laughing about them when you can. Who knows what the cause is for all of these spelling fails. It could be public schools, sheer ignorance, aggressive autocorrect or a combination of all three.

Dumb Design Fails from The Lazy and Incompetent

People are asked to make a lot of things, but sometimes we're not up to the challenge. This leads to some prime fails of people not doing their jobs correctly. Words get left off of shirts, signs stop making sense, and people start building pathways to nowhere. We're not mad, we're actually pretty stoked about it.

Times People Tried and Failed at Words

Not only are words hard to spell, sometimes they're also hard to think of. For example, there are times when you can picture the image of a woodpecker in your head but the only thing that comes out is "jackhammer bird." When someone can't think of how to spell "spaghetti" they get extremely creative and come up with misspellings that feel like a kick in the dictionary.

Attempts At The English Language That Failed Miserably

Fully grasping any language is no easy matter. It's tough. And the English language is filled to the brim with difficulties it doesn't get enough credit for. Especially those strange spellings that just don't match up with how we envision the word being spelled, due to how it sounds. These attempts at the English language just crashed and burned in a pit of fail.

Spelling Failures that Really Ate a Dictionary

Spelling is hard, and we see a lot of spelling fails that would make the dictionary quit. It gets harder when you hear a word or phrase a bunch of times without ever reading it, so you have to make up your own phonetic spelling. And that's how you get so many folks living in a doggy dog world. Then sometimes you get small typos that mean a lot, like when a sign suddenly turns a beach into "pubic access." Sometimes spelling fails make us question public schools.
