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.
