30+ Photos That Will Make You Look Twice Of How Outrageous They Seem

From time to time, everyone makes mistakes, and that is perfectly normal. The issue is that some people make a lot more mistakes than others, and what is worse, they seem to be completely unaffected by their own mistakes, continuing their happy, carefree lives, while the rest of us have to deal with the consequences that should be theirs. This is a collection of pictures that made us wonder, “How could they think they were doing a good job?!”

Turning frying pans into crying pans

This is a clever way to organize your frying pans, but if they did not plan to keep them in place, why would a person draw their pans’ outline on that board? More so, why do they bother to draw one and not even follow it?

Turning frying pans into crying pans

Turning frying pans into crying pans

If we were to see this in someone’s kitchen, we wouldn’t be able to control ourselves. We would immediately begin to reorganize those pans and would not stop until each of them was sitting in their designated space. And that’s why individuals are no longer inviting us to their households.

Not the sharpest pencil

One of those things in life that will give you a feeling of unexplainable satisfaction is using a freshly sharpened pencil. It’s like dipping your spoon in the yogurt pot you just opened or letting the lipstick bullet you’ve just purchased touch your lips for the first time.

Not the sharpest pencil

Not the sharpest pencil

We’re looking at this photo, and all we get is the feeling of disappointment rather than the expectation of these two pencils being used. Now, we don’t have one to use either! Let’s just hope that they’ve got another!

Isn’t it ironic?

Isn’t it ironic (hi, Alanis Morissette) that the phrase “a piece of cake” means “something simple to do,” but apparently, for some people, it’s not “a piece of cake” to properly cut a piece of cake! Well, how hard can it actually be?

Isn’t it ironic?

Isn’t it ironic?

We understand that it can be hard to slice a round cake perfectly, but come on, the person who baked this sweet treat was considerate enough to dust sugar on top of it, marking exactly where it was meant to be cut!

Windows update has failed.

It can be tricky to renovate an old building; we know … you want to maintain its character and maintain the original historical features that make it so special while improving comfort and function.

Windows update has failed

Windows update has failed.

Knowing exactly how to balance looks and purpose is the secret. Just look at this building if you want to learn how to blend the original and the modern elements seamlessly because it is the best example of what not to do.

‘No one’s gonna notice anyway.’

People often do their job, but it doesn’t end up looking exactly as it should be. They’ll shrug and say, “no one’s gonna notice anyway,” instead of doing it again or fixing their mistake, and then let it slip.

‘No one’s gonna notice anyway’

‘No one’s gonna notice anyway.’

This, however, happens to be a box of sketch pencils that artists use. For their attention to detail, artists are notoriously known. So, yes, the individual who bought these pencils noticed what was wrong.

An embarrassing situation waiting to happen

Most of the failures on this list, we’ll admit, are pretty harmless, even if they’re annoying. Unless you consider “hurting the soul of perfectionists” to be “actual damage,” they will not do any actual damage to anyone.

An embarrassing situation waiting to happen

An embarrassing situation waiting to happen

However, this is only an embarrassing situation waiting to happen. According to the signs on each door, the restrooms are for men and women according to the hanging signs, but they are for women and men. Good luck to anybody who needs to use them!

The stuff of nightmares

We know that one of the most exhausting experiences out there is working in retail, and everyone should do it once in their lives so that they can appreciate employees who do their best to offer us helpful and friendly service.

The stuff of nightmares

The stuff of nightmares

But how did the individual in charge of dressing this mannequin not realize what they were doing wrong? They have created the scariest retail experience our eyes have ever had the displeasure of seeing by turning each half of the mannequin in a different direction.

Does someone have a ruler?

We’ve never studied architecture or anything like that before, but if you’ve got a bunch of lines coming together at the same spot, aren’t they supposed to… meet at that spot? But we’re not the experts here anyway.

Does someone have a ruler?

Does someone have a ruler?

What we find fascinating is that it is such a visible place in the house. It’s for everyone to see right there, and the people responsible for it didn’t care to make it look perfect. It makes you wonder what else in this home is crooked and mismatched.

So close yet so far

We greatly appreciate the hard-working delivery people who are devoted to the mission of getting our parcels to us safely and on time. In this particular instance, the person who delivered this package.

So close yet so far

So close yet so far

They were thoughtful enough to walk up the stairs and place the box right at the entrance to the house of this man, but they did not realize what was right in the box. By. The. Entrance. And now, without making the parcel fall down the stairs, it is impossible to open the door. So close yet so far.

Married to a raccoon

Time and intimacy will teach you things about your partner when you’re married that you had no idea about before, even if you two have been dating for several years before deciding to marry.

Married to a raccoon

Married to a raccoon

For instance, in the case, this man began to notice his wife’s messy way of opening her jars of peanut butter, her packs of Doritos, and other boxes of sweet treats in general, and only then did he realize he was married to a raccoon.

‘I can’t wait to see the view – oh no.’

This little guy is eager to be riding on a plane for the first time and seeing the world from above. His parents wanted to make sure he got the best out of his first flight, so they clearly asked for a window seat while doing their check-in.

‘I can’t wait to see the view – oh no’

‘I can’t wait to see the view – oh no.’

They managed to secure a window seat; the only detail is that the window was not present. But hey, look at all the room for his leg. We are willing to bet that they had no trouble finding people willing to trade with them.

This is technically correct.

The person who posted the picture on the internet said they “asked the lady to cut the sandwich in three.” We wonder if there was a terrible day for the woman who made the sandwich and just wanted to make people suffer.

This is technically correct

This is technically correct.

Needless to say, this looks wrong, but technically, it’s right, so could you even complain about it? She was asked three times to cut the sandwich, and that’s what she did. No one told her that they wanted the size of the pieces to be the same.

From now on, we’re only ordering take-out

Cooking can be very therapeutic as a leisure activity. And this is the gift that you keep giving, because you have the pleasure of making food, and then you have the pleasure of eating it or sharing it with the people you love.

From now on we’re only ordering take-out

From now on, we’re only ordering take-out

That’s unless, when you turn it on, your cooktop looks like this. We’re not sure how this quality assurance even went through, but if there’s a perfectionist in this house, they’re probably going to order take-out until they can exchange it.

Why, puppies, why?!

This is an error list for humans. This is not human, clearly, and is not an error per se either. So why is this bothering us so much? Why, little puppies, why?! But they’re so adorable! Well, what else can we do but stare at this horrible sight!

Why, puppies, why?!

Why, puppies, why?!

These little dogs couldn’t care less that they finally broke their line-up of black and yellow coats-they just want to eat their food in peace. And we’re going to let them if we can fight the urge that takes over us to swap the two pups on the left.

How to ruin a good thing

There’s one Instagram account called “I Have This Thing with Floors,” and all they post is, duh, floor pictures. We never knew that scrolling through pictures of beautiful, colorful tiled flooring from around the world was so satisfying.

How to ruin a good thing

How to ruin a good thing

Right here, this floor had the potential to be on that Instagram account. This is a delicate tile with a honeycomb, and we love the pattern and the palette. Why would they decide at the last moment to ruin it is beyond us.

Don’t do it if you’re not gonna do it right.

When you’re finishing a job, it’s one thing to make a mistake, and you just add the last details to it. Those that can be pardoned (not by us; by other people). How can you, though, justify something like this?

Don’t do it if you’re not gonna do it right

Don’t do it if you’re not gonna do it right.

When it simply doesn’t do what it was designed for, there’s no way to save a product. If it makes an even bigger mess than the one it was designed to get rid of, what’s the point of putting that little eraser at the end of the pencil?

Plot twist

The story behind this tattoo is something we would honestly like to know. Not just because we love stories, but because we want to understand a man’s mind who chooses to mark their skin with a pattern that every time he removes his shirt will make people go “eek.”

Plot twist

Plot twist

What happens if someone who is an incorrigible perfectionist begins dating him? Plot twist: he’s already in a relationship with a perfectionist, and this is his way of letting them know that he wants to break up with them.

‘Water they are thinking?’

Kids love this kind of toy that you put in water and wait for it to develop into a bigger, more fun shape like a dinosaur or a big, scary shark. If you were to give these capsules to a child, they might not even be aware that they are packed wrong.

‘Water they thinking?’

‘Water they are thinking?’

But we are adults, and we’ve noticed everything. Most importantly, quality control was noticed by individuals at the toy production company. And it ended up like that at the dollar store.

Is Pepsi ok?

There’s nothing more frustrating for people who love Coca-Cola than going to a restaurant, ordering a Coke, and hearing the words, “we don’t have Coke, is Pepsi, ok?” Some of them are going to get snarky and answer something rude like, “I don’t know, is Monopoly money, ok?”

Is Pepsi ok?

Is Pepsi ok?

We hope they weren’t the ones who bought the five Cokes and Pepsi pack. Otherwise, sooner or later, in their own home, they’ll have to say those words they despise. “Mom, can I have more Coke?? “We don’t have Coke, dear. Is Pepsi ok?”

It worked better in their head.

Everyone has been in a situation where something is pictured in their heads, and it looks flawless, but then, in actual situations, they make it a reality and realize it doesn’t work at all. This is the well-known expectation versus reality.

It worked better in their head

It worked better in their head.

This is totally normal, and when it happens, you just have to adjust everything you need to adjust. Or, on that exact spot, you can do like the person who thought the oven would be perfect and settle for opening the oven door every time they want to take something out of that drawer.

Destroying the joys of online shopping

It may take a while for you to notice what is wrong with this photo. It looks fine. Someone bought something online, and their package was delivered to their door conveniently. But then look again. Look closely, alright!

Destroying the joys of online shopping

Destroying the joys of online shopping

Under the doorknob, the parcel was placed, trapping the people inside their own house. They had to call maintenance to be freed, but not before the locksmith took this image for posterity. This makes us almost want to give up on shopping online. Well, just almost…

How? Just how?

We’ve seen our fair share of tile-related mistakes, but this one just made us ask ourselves, “How? Just how? It’s not like the floor pattern is super intricate, but it is confusing many people. But first of all, who did this horrendous thing?

How? Just how?

How? Just how?

And it’s not like the tiles are small either, which could have explained the error as well. These are effortless tiles, which come in straightforward colors, meant to be put together in effortless shapes.

Some men want to watch the world burn.

We refuse to believe the supermarket was doing this. We don’t think that the worker who was so neatly organizing those shelves would feel the need to destroy their beautiful creation out of nowhere. I mean, look at it! It’s so beautiful, and if it weren’t for that tiny mistakes, it would’ve been perfect!

Some men just want to watch the world burn

Some men just want to watch the world burn.

No, this was the work of somebody who needed chaos. Why? There’s no logical explanation for it. “Some men just want to watch the world burn.” Yes, to find meaning in life again, we’ve resorted to quoting Batman films.

Going up?

While it can be difficult, it’s necessary to try and see the positive things in life. “Every cloud has a silver lining,” they say, meaning that there can be a good aspect to even situations or events that seem like the worst ever.

Going up?

Going up?

In the spirit of optimism, we will say that, although the elevator panel is a complete mess, our health will improve because we feel encouraged to start taking the stairs more often. It might help you too, you know?

Have a break

Snapping each column of the wafer and eating them one at a time is the civilized way of eating a Kit Kat. However, people who try to be funny will bite the whole thing at once just to annoy their friends. But not like this!

Have a break

Have a break

Now, this. This is no joke. Whoever has done this is attempting to send a message. You need to have a break if you come home from work one day and see that your significant other has been eating their Kit Kats like this. A severe break-up that is.

Don’t forget to dry your hands.

There are so many bad things going on; we don’t even know where to begin. Three sinks exist, but five paper towel dispensers? In the first place, it’s not very green. Having that much paper at your disposal will make people feel that they can waste it.

Don’t forget to dry your hands

Don’t forget to dry your hands.

Furthermore, why are they placed that way? It seems that the first four alternates in height, but what’s going on with the last one on the right? Lastly, why did they place them in front of the sink? Doesn’t his bathroom have a mirror?

We want answers!

This is simply a “mistake” too random to have been an accident. How is it that there is one tiny tile on this completely yellow floor that doesn’t match the others? And it’s not even by a little. How can you even ignore that?

We want answers!

We want answers!

It’s not like the floor was done in the hue of “butter,” and one tile was done in “canary.” No, one tile is clearly a red “fire brick.” But how did it end up in that place? What does that imply? Why were they put there? We want answers, and we want them now!

Triple threat (in a bad way)

People usually love them or hate them when it comes to condiments-there is no in-between. This is what makes this specific condition of a condiment dispenser. The ketchup is dispensing relish, the mustard is dispensing ketchup, and the relish is dispensing mustard; it is just trouble in the making.

Triple threat (in a bad way)

Triple threat (in a bad way)

There’s a famous story about a waiter putting a bottle of ketchup in front of Frank Sinatra once, and the singer picked it up and threw it on the wall. If he were here, he’d probably do the same with this dispenser.

The hardest decision

In every person’s life, there’s a moment when they can feel it. Just feel what? “It.” They’ll know when it comes. It’s going to feel like every decision they’ve made so far has led them to that moment.

The hardest decision

The hardest decision

We’re willing to bet that when they were pumping gas, this is how the person who shared this photo felt, and they had to choose between an even payment or an even gallon mark. They said it was “the hardest decision ever,” and we trusted them.

A mysterious punishment

Gardens are supposed to be soothing and relaxing, but this inconsistent green area only makes us sweat in all the wrong places. Why, except for that one on the right, did they plant all the bushes in pairs?

A mysterious punishment

A mysterious punishment

Imagine looking out at your window and looking at it for the rest of your life. It’s like – I’m sure that I am being punished for something bad – I just don’t know what.

This is mildly infuriating.

A great way to get organized is “To-do lists.” You can easily manage all the things that need to be done and prioritize what’s more important by listing all the tasks you need to do in a day. Also, it is so satisfying to check off each item as you go!

This is mildly infuriating

This is mildly infuriating.

For you to write on them, this notebook has dotted lines, but our eyes immediately went to the blank space where one dot is missing. First thing on our to-do list: buy a new to-do list.

What we have here is a free spirit.

When a perfectionist shares his stuff with a free spirit, this is what happens. What is, you ask, a free spirit? Ah, a few of them you’ve probably met. You know, an independent thinker is a free spirit, a nonconformist.

What we have here is a free spirit

What we have here is a free spirit.

A free spirit is someone who sits every day at college in a different spot. A free spirit is someone who, at work, will use the personal coffee mugs of other people. A free spirit is someone who, full of dog ears, will borrow a book and give it back. Yes, they’re *that* type of people.

I almost missed that one.

We almost let this one slide, but in this picture, our eyes have caught something wrong, and now we’re dragging you with us if you haven’t already seen what’s bothering us. Still nothing? One last chance.

Almost missed that one

I almost missed that one.

This is a beautiful stencil job, except for the number 3, which was done upside down, on the track and field course. It’s not so striking, but it’s one of those things you can’t unsee once you’ve seen it.

The ‘parking of the year’ award

One of the most annoying things about owning a car is dealing with bad jobs in parking. Since parking space is not so widely available, it can be infuriating to come across a poorly parked vehicle that takes up two parking spots.

The ‘parking of the year’ award

The ‘parking of the year’ award

Some people just don’t realize or don’t care that others will be directly affected by how they park their car. It’s not that difficult – just look where the parking lines are. This was not done by someone here, and everyone else had no choice but to follow suit.

Circling the check box

We’re going to excuse this one just because this happened in a highly emotional scenario, and probably the adrenaline was pumping too high. But the sign asks, “will you marry me?” then it clearly provides two checkboxes, one for yes, and one for no.

Circling the check box

Circling the check box

She circled the whole thing instead of checking the box for yes, and usually that would have made us facepalm, but they are so adorable, and we wish them all the happiness in the world!

Where the sidewalk ends

Some people take their jobs very seriously. With the satisfaction of a job well done, they show up to work, do their very best, and go home. The individual who was responsible, though, for building this sidewalk?

Where the sidewalk ends

Where the sidewalk ends

They took one look at the post blocking their path and probably shrugged and said, “Not my problem.” And they just picked up their work several feet to the left of it instead of actually trying to connect the two pieces of the sidewalk.

Looking for a job?

Finding a good job can be hard. Either you are overqualified for every position you are applying for, or nobody is actually hiring in your field. This company would seem to have solved its problem of having too many candidates applying for their position.

Looking for a job?

Looking for a job?

They put their ad, which features a friendly woman in a suit with her arm invitingly stretched out, right over a trash can. We can only assume that means that every resume that crosses their desk is surely reviewed, right?

Why won’t the lights go on?

There is an immense demand for alternative sources of energy in today’s day and age. For example, solar power is a trendy choice because the sun is considered one of our most renewable resources.

Why won’t the lights go on?

Why won’t the lights go on?

Someone installed these solar panels with that in mind and waited for them to start working. One small issue, though. Actually, they need to be at work in the direct sunlight, and those dense trees are not exactly helping their efforts. Ah well, they tried, at least?

A rogue sprinkle

There is something strangely stressful about this picture, and on a visceral level, it seriously offends us. It’s like the one blue sprinkle thought it was all right to sneak into the canister of red sprinkles and just chill out there.

A rogue sprinkle

A rogue sprinkle

Perhaps it was hoping that no one would notice it and not get busted for jumping on the red side? If that were our container of sprinkles, you can bet we would totally go digging in there to fish it out and put it back where it belonged.

The trees were there first.

Everything has its own order and place in a proper society, and everything should be organized correctly. For example, it would make sense when laying a sidewalk that the trees would be spaced evenly throughout it. It’s more appealing and appealing visually, right?

The trees were there first

The trees were there first.

However, whoever installed this sidewalk did not get that memo and decided to place those grates anywhere simply. While we can definitely commend them for saving the trees, their placement’s completely erratic pattern doesn’t sit right with us.

Wait, there’s a particular order?

Just as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, art is highly subjective as well. Any masterpiece is open for interpretation, and the opinion of a painting by one person can vary widely from the impression of it by another person.

Wait, there’s a particular order?

Wait, there’s a particular order?

The person who hung this series of paintings walked clearly to the beat of their own drum, deciding to hang them up in whatever way they were attracted to. Although it may not be how the original artist intended them to be placed, we commend them for their creativity in hanging them.

Mmm, savory sprinkles

Imagine baking a delicious cake and deciding that what it needed was a dash of sprinkles to make it perfect after taking a long look at it. You know you bought some the last time you were at the grocery store, but you can’t seem to find them anywhere. Now imagine digging through your pantry to find your container of sprinkles.

Mmm, savory sprinkles

Mmm, savory sprinkles

Okay, well, you’ve probably been looking for a colorful container, not a black canister with onions and peppers on it. Oh no, wait, no one wants beef stew flavored sprinkles. That’s just gross.

Choose your floor

It can be tricky to try to navigate your building’s elevator, especially if it’s your first time riding in it. You would reasonably expect the floors to be labeled in a specific order in most instances. That would have been the smart thing to do, right?

Choose your floor

Choose your floor

The person who designed this elevator panel decided, for some reason, to get a little creative in their ordering and just arranged them any way they wanted. Think fast: find the 16th floor! Alright, spot on the 25th floor now. We can laugh at this gaffe together at least, right?

We have no words…

It is amazing how it can make us strangely itchy with something as innocent-looking as a photograph. No, this isn’t a picture of a woolen sweater or a bunch of spiders, but we’re upset by something here.

We have no words…

We have no words…

It’s as if we almost wish we could just reach through the picture, pick up with our hands the offending brick, and put it back in its right place. Alas, we can’t, so with a sad frown on our faces, we just have to stare at it.

How not to slice a pie

The holidays are the perfect pumpkin pie time of the year. Any time between the first week of November and the last day of December, and especially with a dollop of whipped cream, is a reasonable time to eat this delicious treat.

How not to slice a pie

How not to slice a pie

However, someone didn’t get the memo that you are supposed to slice a pie from the edges, not from the center. Perhaps they aren’t crusted, folks? Although we would usually be angry about someone doing that to this defenseless pie, for us, it just means more pie crust.

Can we just switch them?

Brace yourself because you are going to be really upset by this image. Let us set the scene for you: two panels were on it, one plain and one with a yellow mark. The yellow-marked one was supposed to go over the non-skid panel, as you probably already know, and the other one was supposed to be on the opposite side of it.

Can we just switch them?

Can we just switch them?

Of course, their panels were turned up by anyone who installed the cable and street lighting. We only hope that they are correctly marked and that they match what is under them!

The time-out seat

Some people are friendly and love hanging out with their peer group. Other people are not quite as socially adept. Could we present these people with this chair? It may not be the most comfortable chair in the room right now, but you can be assured that no one will plop down directly across from you.

The time-out seat

The time-out seat

And if you want to avoid making eye contact in the room with someone else, might we suggest that you stare straight ahead at the white post? Why not, of course, of course. Oh, have a seat, buddy. There’s your chair waiting.

He just wanted a popsicle.

No treat hits the spot quite like an icy cold fruity popsicle during the hot summer months. Now, while no one will make any health claims about making this frozen treat with real fruit (just look at its bright, colorful rainbow!), that’s not the point.

He just wanted a popsicle

He just wanted a popsicle.

The point is that they are supposed to have popsicles stuck on the outside of them, not the inside. All over their hands, nobody wants melted sugar water. The individual in this heartbreaking picture was really disappointed by whoever assembled this popsicle.

Just pour out a little

Have you ever tried to add a splash of cream to your coffee just to… whoops! How about overdoing it and pouring too much into your cup? Argh, this is so irritating, isn’t it? Probably the only thing that’s more annoying than that is trying to open your carton of cream just to tear up the packaging.

Just pour out a little

Just pour out a little

Look, here, at the bright side of life. Consider it there instead of seeing it as a design flaw to help you pour better. There is no way you’re going to accidentally pour too much with a tiny little opening like that.

How do you open it?

For the random odds and ends that you buy in the store, who were the smartypants who created those plastic clamshell packages? Although they are doing a great job of protecting the outside world’s content, it is a real challenge to get open.

How do you open it?

How do you open it?

If only someone invented a device that would make it easier to cut into these kinds of packages… Oh, wow, this invention is just pure genius! Now, if we were only able actually to open it, we would all be set!

That was the yummiest part.

Right now, we’re warning you. This picture will make you both extremely hungry and extremely sad at the same time. This delicious-looking chocolate cheesecake was ordered by someone, complete with chocolate whipped cream dollops on the top.

That was the yummiest part

That was the yummiest part.

And we can bet they’ve probably been looking forward all day to a slice of it. That is what makes it all the more devastating to see all those yummy blobs of whipped cream stuck to the top of the box. What a waste!

Coloring outside the lines

For all the young soccer fans out there, we like to imagine that there’s a factory out there that lovingly builds and inflates little soccer balls. And they stitch them together carefully, gently puff them up, then paint them with black hexagons.

Coloring outside the lines

Coloring outside the lines

Well, all our dreams have just been shattered by this picture. Now we know there’s probably just a stamp on the soccer ball that puts the coloring on it. Clearly, this one managed to pass quality control somehow, even though it is clearly outside the lines.

What a bargain!

Brace yourself, friends, because it is a complete steal to sell this iced tea. Now, we know that $5.99 can be a little bit steep for tea (get it?), so the store manager decided to mark it down so that everyone could afford this beverage.

What a bargain!

What a bargain!

We hope you’re ready to stock up because this item will save you a whopping penny. Well, what are you going to wait for? A deal like this won’t last long, so you should get yours while you still can. Or this might be gone in no time!

Technically the truth

This truck driving company did not realize that their logo would be foreshadowed when their driver attempted to maneuver the truck under this overpass. Clearly, the pass’s height was either overestimated, or the truck’s height underestimated because now they’re stuck.

Technically the truth

Technically the truth

Well, technically speaking, they match… It was just a bad fit, and they’re not going to go anywhere any time soon. We suspect that they’ll develop a new trademark for their freight company after this, don’t you agree?

Guess they’ll just sleep in the hall…

What are the hotels that make them so entertaining and exciting? It’s probably because when you stay in a hotel most of the time, it probably means you’re on vacation. Of course, if you’re traveling for business, that’s entirely another story.

Guess they’ll just sleep in the hall…

Guess they’ll just sleep in the hall…

However, the individual in this picture is probably not going to get a good night’s sleep. The legend on the wall tells them the direction in which their room should be, but a look at their key indicates that there is not even their room. We hope they didn’t want service from the room.

Something’s afoot here.

It can be quite difficult to try to get dressed in the morning, especially if you’re trying to throw your clothes on even before you’ve had your first cup of coffee in the morning. That is what makes it so convenient for slides.

Something’s afoot here

Something’s afoot here.

All you have to do is stick your feet in, and you don’t even have shoelaces to fuss about. Look, for your convenience, these slippers are even labeled left and right. Wait a minute… there’s something that doesn’t look right… Ah well. If they cross their ankles and hope for the best, after all, maybe it’ll be okay?

Tall people problems

In life, tall people have gotten the short end of the stick. They always ask stupid questions, such as, “How’s the weather up there? Do you play basketball? Can you hand me that item from the top shelf?”

Tall people problems

Tall people problems

And as the gentleman in this picture shows, in peace, they’re not even allowed to take a shower. For more petite people, whoever built this shower clearly designed it, and this tall fellow will have to really dunk his head down just to wash his hair.

Garbage, compost, and recycling?

This trash can is a very thoughtful one. It obviously cares about the environment, so it has separate waste, recyclable, and compost openings. But we can’t help but be a little suspicious upon closer inspection that someone is actually going to come around later and sort through the items.

Garbage, compost, and recycling?

Garbage, compost, and recycling?

We’re going to have to conclude that all of its contents are just going to the city dump after all, based on that arm that is peeking through the opening with its scrap of paper. This is an illusion… or is it?

Water-melon were they thinking?!

Summertime is the season of watermelon, and indeed, on a hot summer day, there is no better treat than a juicy and refreshing wedge of seeded red fruit. When the temperature creeps into the 80s and 90s, it really does hit the spot.

Water-melon were they thinking?!

Water-melon were they thinking?!

But this box has us doubting that we actually know what watermelons are. Are they big, round, and look suspiciously like pumpkins since when? Here, wait a minute. For their fall pumpkins, somebody just repurposed a watermelon box. Well, they’re resourceful, at least, right?

Yes, it clearly worked.

Here’s what we would say if there were two proven facts that we could share with you about puppies. First, the puppies are just so cute and adorable, and we just love them very seriously. And with two?

Yes, it clearly worked

Yes, it clearly worked.

They love to chew whatever it takes to get around their little jaws. Luckily, someone has developed a spray that helps keep your dog from getting into things and chewing on them. Unfortunately, as all the small marks of teeth on the bottle have shown, it didn’t seem to work.

Be careful when you sit down.

There’s nothing like taking a walk around the park, then stopping to rest on one of the many strategically placed benches throughout the park. And who would like to go and play in a park with barren and muddy patches in it?

Be careful when you sit down

Be careful when you sit down.

That’s why it is important to have sprinkler systems that help water the grass and keep it green and vibrant. Just, um, if those sprinklers go off, please don’t take a seat on the bench, or you’ll be in for an unpleasant surprise.

The last step’s a doozy.

On so many levels, this is just wrong. Clearly, someone marked these steps with a black bar so that whoever went down them would not travel. Actually, that’s fairly thoughtful of them, to be fair. However, they just made one small mistake.

The last step’s a doozy

The last step’s a doozy.

They were completely spaced out, and they also painted a black bar on the floor for some unknown reason. Are they asking someone to travel around and break a leg? Because, yeah, that’s how you get somebody to go and break a leg on the stairs.

An inspiring inscription

This pillow is a work of art. No, seriously, it’s gorgeous. Look at it, with its beautiful satin finish and that lovely red rose, and, uh, wait, what’s it saying on the side of it?

Someone really went above and beyond to make sure that, as evidenced by the lovely cursive script scrawled on top of it, they left a heartfelt message printed on this pillow. “Sample text.” Bravo, bravo. That is sheer poetry that would bring shame to Longfellow and Yeats.

Please close the windows.

Advertising on the side of a city bus is a great way to get out there with your name. After all, how many people ride the bus every day, and how many more in their neighborhood happen to see one driving around?

Please close the windows

Please close the windows.

Sadly, they didn’t think about their ad strategy for this company, though. Yes, the spokesman for their company is emblazoned on the side of the bus, but the moment you open the windows to let fresh air in? It’s very uncanny and extremely creepy all of a sudden.

It’s a ladder…?

Gates are a reliable way to keep people out and in! A community of yours. You can help ensure that nobody goes where they’re unwelcome by shutting and locking the gate. And for you to get in, this gate requires a key code, which means that nobody gets in without a password.

It’s a ladder…?

It’s a ladder…?

That being said, there’s just one small problem. They somehow managed to create a ladder by spacing the bars on the gate so evenly. Anyone can climb over now just to get in.

Yeowtch!

If you are a coffee fan, then it’s probably safe to say that you have acquired a nice collection of coffee mugs over the years. You probably have cups on your side with witty words (such as, “Don’t talk to me until I’ve had my first cup of coffee!”) and your favorite superheroes.

Yeowtch!

Yeowtch!

Someone thought that making this coffee cup in the form of a blue fox, which is super cute, would be fun. Apart from those tiny vulpine ears? Just like one of the Three Stooges, they’re ready to poke you in the eyes.

Goodbye, toothbrush

Many people would probably choose function over form when it comes to designing your bathroom. Here, let’s be realistic. A nice looking bathroom vanity sounds cool in theory, but this ski-jump shaped sink is just a disaster in the making.

Goodbye, toothbrush

Goodbye, toothbrush

Someone thought balancing their toothbrush on the edge of the vanity would be perfectly fine, and swoosh-it fell right into the open toilet. Uh, Gross. It seems like someone needs both a brand-new toothbrush and a new sink for vanity, too!

Just a single-blind, please.

We just feel confused when we look at this picture. When they constructed this wall and installed this window, what was the architect thinking? “Oh, please, we want the room to let in some sunlight. But not too much! We don’t want to overdo it or anything.”

Just a single-blind, please

Just a single-blind, please.

Say no more. And so, the window with a single panel was invented. A window that small, of course, requires its own unique blind, too. We wonder if they are sold in singles in the hardware store, or did someone have to trim down a larger set of blinds here?

Stair-ing at the mistake

When we look at this picture, we can’t help but have a couple of different questions come to mind. To start with, who thought it would be a good idea to design this staircase like this?

Stair-ing at the mistake

Stair-ing at the mistake

And what came first, the handrail or the white pillar? While we may never know, at least we can be confident that someone exhibited some creative design skills when creating these stairs. At least, that’s what we say to ourselves because otherwise, it doesn’t make any sense.

Books don’t fit? Ah well.

A locker has a fundamental job: it’s designed between classes to hold all of your school belongings. That’s what you think a locker would, at least, be designed to do. This locker, though, seems not to have gotten the memo as to what its duties were.

Books don’t fit? Ah well.

Books don’t fit? Ah well.

They quickly learned that the narrow shelves prevented them from performing this basic task when they attempted to cram their backpack into them. Perhaps if they took their stuff out of the bag, would it finally fit?

Wasteful packaging? What do you mean?

A single piece of fruit makes for a nutritious and healthy snack. And the thing is, with their own natural packaging already built into them, many fruits come. Take, for example, bananas and oranges.

Wasteful packaging? What do you mean?

Wasteful packaging? What do you mean?

You peel it off and then eat the delicious contents of it. That makes you just kind of wonder when you look at this picture and shake your head. Why did someone feel the need to wrap these fruits in single-serving plastic tubs? This is just really wasteful!

WHY IS IT SO LOUD?

Do you know what is one of the leading causes of loss of hearing? It’s constant exposure to noise pollution like music turned up to a decibel that’s too high. But if you are trying to turn the music down so that you can listen to the conversations around you, when you try to adjust the volume on this keyboard, you’re going to be in for an unpleasant surprise.

WHY IS IT SO LOUD?

WHY IS IT SO LOUD?

We do not know what the keyboard designer was thinking about, but we do not doubt that many people accidentally turned the volume up when they wanted to turn it down.

First, we zig, then we zag

Did you know that a straight line is the shortest distance between two points? Well, it’s a good thing that people who use sidewalks are not in a hurry because it’s quite an adventure to try to get on this sidewalk between point A and point B.

First, we zig, then we zag

First, we zig, then we zag

We hope you are looking for a stroll because the meandering shape of this jagged sidewalk will cost you a couple of extra seconds. As you walk through it, you might enjoy the views as well, huh?

F-i-itness center

Whoever designed this logo is a genius, actually. Who would have thought of the word “fitness” using a dumbbell as an I? When they replaced the I with a dumbbell, they forgot to take out the actual letter itself, except that anyone who created this clever logo caused a small problem.

F-i-itness center

F-i-itness center

Now, it looks like someone is saying “fiitness center” instead of reading “fitness center.” Thank goodness, the design’s creativity overshadows the tiny mistake, so we’re still going to commend them for their creative logo.

No, please don’t

This sign carries an essential message, and we hope you have stopped reading it and considering what it is trying to say to you. Even so, seriously, just no. No what, though? No what?

No, please don’t

No, please don’t

Well, what don’t they want us to do? It is not our place to call this sign into question. Someone thought hanging it up high and in red was important enough, so it clearly means something. So whatever you thought of doing, no. Just no. Don’t do that. The sign commands it.
