30+ Pictures That Will Make You Think Twice About How Absurd They Are

Everyone makes mistakes from time to time, and that is perfectly normal. The problem is that some people make a lot more mistakes than others, and even worse, they appear to be completely unaffected by their own mistakes, continuing to live happy carefree lives. Yet, at the same time, the rest of us suffer the consequences that should be theirs. “How could they think they were doing a good job?” we wondered after seeing this collection of photos.

Turning frying pans into crying pans

This is a clever way to organize your frying pans, but why would someone outline their pans on that board if they didn’t intend to keep them in place? Why, moreover, do they bother to draw one and then fail to follow it?

We wouldn’t be able to control ourselves if we saw this in someone’s kitchen. We’d start reorganizing those pans right away, and we wouldn’t stop until each of them was in its proper place. As a result, people are no longer inviting us into their homes.

Not the sharpest pencil

Using a freshly sharpened pencil is one thing in life that gives you an inexplicable sense of satisfaction. It’s the equivalent of dipping your spoon into a freshly opened yogurt pot or letting the lipstick bullet you just bought touch your lips for the first time.

Not the sharpest pencil

When we look at this photo, all we get is a sense of disappointment rather than the anticipation of seeing these two pencils in action. Unfortunately, we don’t have one to use anymore, either! Let’s hope they’ve got another one!

Isn’t it ironic?

Isn’t it amusing (hi, Alanis Morissette) that the phrase “a piece of cake” refers to “something easy to do,” but apparently, properly cutting a piece of cake is not “a piece of cake” for some people! Indeed, how difficult can it be?

Isn’t it ironic?

Isn’t it ironic?

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

Windows update has failed.

It can be difficult to renovate an old building; we understand that you want to keep the character and original historical features that make it unique while also improving comfort and functionality.

Windows update has failed

Windows update has failed.

The key is to know how to strike the right balance between appearance and function. If you want to learn how to blend original and modern elements seamlessly, look at this building because it is the best example of what not to do.

‘No one’s gonna notice anyway.’

People regularly do their jobs, but the results are not always as expected. So instead of doing it again or correcting their error, they’ll shrug and say, “no one’s going to notice anyway,” and then let it slide.

‘No one’s gonna notice anyway’

‘No one’s gonna notice anyway.’

This, on the other hand, is a box of sketch pencils used by artists. Artists are well-known for their meticulous attention to detail. So, yes, the person who purchased these pencils was aware of the flaw.

An embarrassing situation waiting to happen

We’ll admit that most of the failures on this list are relatively harmless, even if they are annoying. They will not cause any actual harm to anyone unless you consider “hurting the soul of perfectionists” to be “actual damage.”

An embarrassing situation waiting to happen

An embarrassing situation waiting to happen

This, on the other hand, is just a situation ripe for embarrassment. The restrooms are for men and women according to the signs on each door, but they are for men and women according to the hanging signs. So anyone who needs to use them has the best of luck!

The stuff of nightmares

Working in retail is one of the most exhausting jobs out there, and everyone should do it at least once in their lives to appreciate the employees who go above and beyond to provide us with helpful and friendly service.

The stuff of nightmares

The stuff of nightmares

But how could the person in charge of dressing this mannequin have been so blind to what they were doing wrong? Instead, they’ve turned each half of the mannequin in a different direction, creating the scariest retail experience our eyes have ever witnessed.

Does someone have a ruler?

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

Does someone have a ruler?

Does someone have a ruler?

We find it fascinating that it is located in such a prominent location in the house. It’s right there for everyone to see, and the people in charge didn’t care if it looked perfect. So it makes you wonder what else is crooked and mismatched in this house.

So close yet so far

We thank the dedicated delivery personnel who work tirelessly to ensure that our packages arrive safely and on schedule—the person who delivered this package in this particular case.

So close yet so far

So close yet so far

They were considerate enough to walk up the stairs and place the box right outside this man’s front door, but they had no idea what was inside. By. The. Front. Door. It is now impossible to open the door without causing the parcel to fall down the stairs. Yet, despite being so close, it is still a long way away.

Married to a raccoon

Even if you and your partner have been dating for several years before deciding to marry, time and intimacy will teach you things about your partner that you didn’t know before.

Married to a raccoon

Married to a raccoon

In the case at hand, this man began to notice his wife’s sloppy opening of peanut butter jars, Doritos packs, and other boxes of sweet treats in general, and it was only then that he realized he was married to a raccoon.

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

This little guy is very excited to take his first flight and see the world from above. His parents wanted to make sure he got the most out of his first flight, so they specifically requested a window seat when they checked in.

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

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

They were able to secure a window seat; however, the window was not present. But, hey, look at how much space there is for his leg. So we’re willing to bet they didn’t have any trouble finding people who would trade with them.

This is technically correct.

“We asked the lady to cut the sandwich in three,” the person who posted the picture on the internet said. So we’re wondering if the woman who made the sandwich was having a bad day and just wanted to make people suffer.

This is technically correct

This is technically correct.

Needless to say, this appears to be incorrect, but it is technically correct, so how could you possibly object? She was asked to cut the sandwich three times, and she did so. No one informed her that the pieces needed to be the same size.

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

Cooking as a leisure activity can be very therapeutic. And this is the gift you keep giving because you enjoy making food, then eating it or sharing it with the people you care about.

From now on we’re only ordering take-out

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

That is unless your cooktop looks like this when you turn it on. We’re not sure how this quality assurance process worked, but if there’s a perfectionist in this house, they’ll probably order takeout until they can get it replaced.

Why, puppies, why?!

This is a list of human mistakes. This is clearly not human, and it is also not a mistake. So, what’s the big deal here? Why, oh why, little puppies?! But they’re so cute! What else can we do but stare at this horrifying sight?

Why, puppies, why?!

Why, puppies, why?!

These small dogs don’t seem to mind that they’ve finally broken their line of black and yellow coats; all they want to do is eat their food in peace. And we’re going to let them if we can resist the urge to swap the two puppies on the left.

How to ruin a good thing

There’s an Instagram account called “I Have This Thing with Floors” that only posts pictures of floors. We had no idea how satisfying it was to scroll through pictures of beautiful, colorful tiled flooring from around the world.

How to ruin a good thing

How to ruin a good thing

This floor had the potential to be on that Instagram account right now. This is a delicate honeycomb tile with a pattern and color palette that we love. We’re not sure why they decided to ruin it at the last minute.

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

It’s one thing to make a mistake while finishing a job and then add the finishing touches. Those who can be forgiven (not by us; by other people). But how can something like this be justified?

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

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

There’s no way to save a product that doesn’t do what it was designed to do. So what’s the point of putting that little eraser at the end of the pencil if it makes an even bigger mess than the one it’s supposed to clean up?

Plot twist

We’d be curious to learn more about the meaning of this tattoo. We want to understand a man’s mind who chooses to mark his skin with a pattern that will make people go “eek” every time he removes his shirt, not just because we love stories.

Plot twist

Plot twist

What happens if he starts dating someone who is an unbreakable perfectionist? Plot twist: he’s already in a relationship with a perfectionist, and this is his way of telling them he wants to end things with them.

‘Water they are thinking?’

Kids love this type of toy, which you submerge in water and watch grow into a larger, more fun shape, such as a dinosaur or a large, scary shark. But, unfortunately, if you give these capsules to a child, they may not even realize they are packed incorrectly.

‘Water they thinking?’

‘Water they are thinking?’

However, we are not children, and we’ve noticed it all. For example, individuals stressed at the toy company that, among other things, quality control was noticeably lacking. And it ended up like that at the dollar store.

Is Pepsi ok?

Nothing is more aggravating for Coca-Cola fans than going to a restaurant, ordering a Coke, and being told, “We don’t have Coke, is Pepsi, ok?” Then, of course, some of them will be snarky and respond with something like, “I don’t know, is Monopoly money, ok?”

Is Pepsi ok?

Is Pepsi ok?

We’re hoping they weren’t the ones who purchased the five-pack of Coke and Pepsi. Otherwise, they’ll have to say those words they despise in their own home sooner or later. “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 they have a mental image of something that looks flawless, but when they put it into practice, they discover it doesn’t work at all. This is a well-known example of expectation vs. reality.

It worked better in their head

It worked better in their head.

This is completely normal, and all you have to do now is make the necessary adjustments. But, of course, you can also do what the person who thought the oven would be perfect did 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 some time for you to notice the flaws in this picture. However, it appears to be in good condition. Someone made an online purchase, and their package was conveniently delivered to their door. But then take another look. Okay, take a close look!

Destroying the joys of online shopping

Destroying the joys of online shopping

The parcel was hidden beneath the doorknob, trapping the people inside their own homes. Then, of course, they had to call maintenance to be freed, but not before the locksmith snapped this photo for posterity. We’re on the verge of abandoning online shopping because of this. Well, just almost…

How? Just how?

We’ve seen our fair share of tile-related mistakes, but this one made us wonder, “How? The floor pattern isn’t particularly intricate, but it confuses a lot of people. But first and foremost, who did this horrendous thing?

How? Just how?

How? Just how?

It’s also not like the tiles are small, which could have contributed to the error. These are basic tiles that come in simple colors and are meant to be put together in simple shapes.

Some men want to watch the world burn.

We can’t believe the supermarket was involved in this. We don’t believe the worker who was so meticulously organizing those shelves felt compelled to destroy their work out of nowhere. Take a look at it! It’s so lovely, and it would have been perfect if it weren’t for those minor flaws!

Some men just want to watch the world burn

Some men just want to watch the world burn.

This, on the other hand, was the work of someone who required chaos. What is the reason for this? There isn’t a logical reason for it. “Some men just want to watch the world burn.” So, to rediscover meaning in life, we’ve resorted to quoting Batman movies.

Going up?

It’s important to try to see the bright side of life, even if it’s difficult. “Every cloud has a silver lining,” they say, implying that even the worst-case scenarios or events can have a positive side.

Going up?

Going up?

In the spirit of optimism, we’ll say that, even though the elevator panel is a complete disaster, our health will improve due to our motivation to take the stairs more frequently. You never know; it might come in handy for you as well.

Have a break

The civilized way to eat a Kit Kat is to snap each column of the wafer and eat them one by one. People who try to be funny, on the other hand, will bite the entire thing at once just to annoy their friends. But not in this way!

Have a break

Have a break

Then there’s this. This is not a prank. Someone is attempting to send a message by doing this. If you come home from work one day and see your significant other eating Kit Kats like this, you need to take a break. That is a serious breakup.

Don’t forget to dry your hands.

We don’t know where to begin because there are so many bad things going on. There are three sinks, but how about five paper towel dispensers? To begin with, it isn’t particularly green. Second, having so much paper at your disposal gives the impression that you can throw it away.

Don’t forget to dry your hands

Don’t forget to dry your hands.

What’s more, why are they arranged in that manner? The first four appear to alternate in height, but what’s up with the last one on the right? Finally, why were they positioned in front of the sink? Isn’t there a mirror in his bathroom?

We want answers!

This is simply a “mistake” that is far too random to have occurred by chance. Why is there one tiny tile on this completely yellow floor that isn’t the same color as 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 painted in a “butter” color, and one tile was painted in a “canary” color. No, one of the tiles is a red “fire brick.” But how did it come to be in that place? So, what does that mean? Why were they placed there in the first place? We’re looking for answers, and we’re looking for them now!

Triple threat (in a bad way)

When it comes to condiments, people either love them or hate them; there is no middle ground. This is what distinguishes this condiment dispenser’s condition. It’s just trouble in the making because the ketchup is dispensing relish, the mustard is dispensing ketchup, and the relish is dispensing mustard.

Triple threat (in a bad way)

Triple threat (in a bad way)

A famous story goes that a waiter placed a bottle of ketchup in front of Frank Sinatra, who picked it up and threw it against the wall. He’d probably do the same with this dispenser if he were here.

The hardest decision

There is a time in everyone’s life when they can sense it. “It” is all I can say. They’ll be able to tell when it arrives. It will feel as if 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 the person who shared this photo felt the same way when they were pumping gas and had to choose between an even payment and an even gallon mark. We believed them when they said it was “the hardest decision ever.”

A mysterious punishment

Gardens are supposed to be relaxing and soothing, but this patchwork of greenery only makes us sweat in the wrong places. Except for the one on the right, why were all the bushes planted in pairs?

A mysterious punishment

A mysterious punishment

Consider for a moment standing there and looking out your window, where you are for the rest of your life. I am likely being punished for something – I am sure of it – I just don’t know what it is

This is mildly infuriating.

“To-do lists” are a great way to stay organized. By making a list of all the tasks you need to complete in a day, you can easily track everything you need to get done and prioritize what’s most important. It’s also a lot of fun to cross off each item as you go!

This is mildly infuriating

This is mildly infuriating.

This notebook has dotted lines for you to write on, but our eyes immediately went to the blank space where one dot is missing. So the first item on our to-do list is to purchase a new to-do list.

What we have here is a free spirit.

This is what happens when a perfectionist shares his stuff with a free spirit. What exactly is a free spirit, you might wonder? You’ve probably met a few of them. An independent thinker is a free spirit, a nonconformist, as you may know.

What we have here is a free spirit

What we have here is a free spirit.

A free spirit is someone who sits in a different spot each day at college. A free spirit is someone who uses other people’s personal coffee mugs at work. A free spirit is someone who will borrow a book and return it with dog ears. Yes, they’re that kind of person.

I almost missed that one.

We were almost able to overlook this one, but something in this image has caught our attention, and we’re dragging you along with us if you haven’t already noticed what’s bothering us. Still nothing? One last chance.

Almost missed that one

I almost missed that one.

Except for the number 3, which was stenciled upside down on the track and field course, this is a lovely stencil job. It’s not particularly striking, but once you’ve seen it, you can’t unsee it.

The ‘parking of the year award

Dealing with bad parking jobs is one of the most aggravating aspects of owning a car. Because parking spaces are scarce, it can be aggravating to come across a poorly parked vehicle that takes up two spaces.

The ‘parking of the year’ award

The ‘parking of the year award

Some people are simply unaware of or unconcerned about the fact that how they park their car will have a direct impact on others. Look at where the parking lines are, and you’ll see how simple it is. But, unfortunately, no one here did it, and the rest of us had no choice but to follow suit.

Circling the check box

We’ll give this one a pass because it occurred in a highly emotional situation, and the adrenaline was probably pumping too fast. “Will you marry me?” the sign asks. Then there are two checkboxes, one for yes and the other for no.

Circling the check box

Circling the check box

She circled the entire thing instead of checking the box for yes, which would normally make us cringe, but they are so adorable that we wish them all the happiness in the world!

Where the sidewalk ends

Some people are earnest about their jobs. Then, satisfied with a job well done, they show up to work, give it their all, and go home. Who, on the other hand, was in charge of constructing this sidewalk?

Where the sidewalk ends

Where the sidewalk ends

They probably shrugged and said, “Not my problem,” after taking one look at the post blocking their path. And instead of attempting to connect the two pieces of the sidewalk, they simply resumed their work several feet to the left.

Looking for a job?

It can be difficult to find a good job. Either you’re overqualified for every job you’re applying for, or no one in your field is hiring. However, this company appears to have found a solution to its problem of receiving too many applications for a single position.

Looking for a job?

Looking for a job?

They placed their advertisement, which features a friendly woman in a suit with her arm stretched out invitingly, directly over a trash can. We can only assume that every resume that comes across their desk is scrutinized, right?

Why won’t the lights go on?

In today’s world, there is a huge demand for alternative energy sources. Solar power, for example, is a popular option because the sun is one of our most renewable resources.

Why won’t the lights go on?

Why won’t the lights go on?

With that in mind, someone installed these solar panels and waited for them to start working. However, there is one minor snag. They actually need to be working in direct sunlight, and those dense trees aren’t exactly assisting them. But, at the very least, they tried, right?

A rogue sprinkle

This picture has a strangely stressful quality to it, and it offends us on a visceral level. It’s as if the one blue sprinkle decided it was fine to sneak into the canister of red sprinkles and relax there.

A rogue sprinkle

A rogue sprinkle

Maybe it was hoping that no one would notice and that it wouldn’t be caught for jumping on the wrong side of the road? If that was our sprinkles container, you can bet we’d go digging in there to retrieve it and return it to its proper place.

The trees were there first.

Everything has its own order and place in a proper society, and everything should be properly organized. When laying a sidewalk, for example, it would make sense to space the trees evenly throughout. Isn’t it more appealing and visually appealing?

The trees were there first

The trees were there first.

However, whoever put this sidewalk in did not get the memo and decided to put the grates wherever they pleased. While we applaud them for saving the trees, the haphazard pattern in which they placed them does not sit well with us.

Wait, there’s a particular order?

Art is highly subjective, just like beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Any masterpiece is open to interpretation, and one person’s opinion of a painting may differ greatly from another’s an impression of it.

Wait, there’s a particular order?

Wait, there’s a particular order?

The person who hung this series of paintings clearly walked to the beat of their own drum, deciding to hang them in whatever manner piqued their interest. Although it is possible that this is not how the original artist intended them to be hung, we applaud their ingenuity in hanging them.

Mmm, savory sprinkles

Imagine baking a delicious cake and, after giving it a good look, deciding that all it needed was a sprinkling of sprinkles to make it perfect. You remember buying some the last time you went to the store, but you can’t seem to find them. Imagine rummaging through your pantry for your sprinkles container.

Mmm, savory sprinkles

Mmm, savory sprinkles

Okay, you were probably looking for a brightly colored container rather than a black canister with onions and peppers on it. No one wants beef stew-flavored sprinkles, right? That’s disgusting.

Choose your floor

Trying to navigate your building’s elevator can be difficult, especially if it’s your first time. In most cases, you would reasonably expect the floors to be labeled in a specific order. That would have been the prudent course of action, right?

Choose your floor

Choose your floor

For some reason, the person who designed this elevator panel decided to get a little creative with their ordering and just put them in any order they wanted. Find the 16th floor quickly! Okay, I’ll take the 25th floor now. Then, at the very least, we’ll be able to laugh about this mistake together, right?

We have no words…

It’s amazing how something as harmless as a picture can make us feel strangely itchy. No, this isn’t a picture of a woolen sweater or a swarm of spiders, but something here has us upset.

We have no words…

We have no words…

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

How not to slice a pie

The holidays are the best time of year for pumpkin pie. This delectable treat can be enjoyed any time between the first week of November and the last day of December, especially with a dollop of whipped cream.

How not to slice a pie

How not to slice a pie

Someone didn’t get the memo, though, that you should slice a pie from the edges, not the center. So maybe you haven’t crusted after all? Although we would normally be enraged if someone did that to this helpless pie, it simply means more pie crust for us.

Can we just switch them?

Prepare yourself because this image will cause you a great deal of distress. First, let us set the scene for you: it had two panels, one plain and the other with a yellow mark. As you probably know, the yellow-marked one was supposed to go over the non-skid panel, while the other was supposed to be on the opposite side.

Can we just switch them?

Can we just switch them?

Anyone who installed the cable and street lighting, of course, turned up their panels. We can only hope that they are properly labeled and that they correspond to what is beneath them!

The time-out seat

Some people are outgoing and enjoy socializing with their peers. Others, on the other hand, are less socially adept. Could we give this chair to these people? Although it may not be the most comfortable chair in the room, you can rest assured that no one will sit directly across from you.

The time-out seat

The time-out seat

And if you want to avoid making eye contact with anyone else in the room, we recommend staring straight ahead at the white post. Of course, why not? Take a seat, buddy. Your chair is waiting for you.

He just wanted a popsicle.

During the hot summer months, nothing beats an icy cold fruity popsicle for a refreshing treat. While no one is claiming that making this frozen treat with real fruit is healthy (just look at the bright, colorful rainbow! ), that isn’t the point.

He just wanted a popsicle

He just wanted a popsicle.

The point is that popsicles should be stuck on the outside of them, not on the inside. Nobody wants melted sugar water all over their hands. The person in this heartbreaking photograph was extremely dissatisfied with the popsicle’s assembly.

Just pour out a little

Have you ever tried to add a splash of cream to your coffee only to have it go wrong? Why not go all out and pour too much into your cup? Isn’t this incredibly irritating? The only thing that could be more aggravating as trying to open your carton of cream only to tear the packaging.

Just pour out a little

Just pour out a little

Take a look at the bright side of things. Instead of seeing it as a flaw in the design, think of it as a tool to help you pour better. With a tiny little opening like that, there’s no way you’ll accidentally pour too much.

How do you open it?

Who were the geniuses behind those plastic clamshell packages for the random odds and ends you buy at the store? Although they do an excellent job of protecting the content of the outside world, getting open is a real challenge.

How do you open it?

How do you open it?

If only someone could invent a device that made cutting into these kinds of packages a lot easier… Oh, my goodness, this invention is pure brilliance! We’d be all set if we could just figure out how to open it!

That was the yummiest part.

Right now, we’re warning you. This picture will make you extremely hungry while also making you extremely sad. Someone ordered this delectable-looking chocolate cheesecake, complete with chocolate whipped cream dollops on top.

That was the yummiest part

That was the yummiest part.

And we’re sure they’ve been looking forward to a piece of it all day. That’s why seeing all those yummy blobs of whipped cream stuck to the top of the box is so upsetting. What a waste!

Coloring outside the lines

For all of the young soccer fans out there, we like to imagine that there’s a factory somewhere making and inflating small soccer balls. They carefully stitch them together, gently puff them up, and then paint black hexagons on them.

Coloring outside the lines

Coloring outside the lines

Well, this picture has just shattered all of our dreams. Of course, we now know that a stamp most likely applies the coloring on the soccer ball. However, even though it is clearly outside the lines, this one clearly passed quality control.

What a bargain!

Friends, brace yourselves because selling this iced tea is a complete bargain. We all know that $5.99 is a bit much for tea (get it? ), so the store manager decided to reduce the price so that everyone could afford it.

What a bargain!

What a bargain!

We hope you’re prepared to stock up because this item will save you a significant amount of money. So, what are you going to do while you wait? This is a limited-time offer, so take advantage of it while you can. Or it could be gone in a flash!

Technically the truth

When this truck driving company attempted to maneuver the truck under this overpass, they were unaware that their logo would be foreshadowed. They’re stuck because the pass’s height was either overestimated or the truck’s height was underestimated.

Technically the truth

Technically the truth

Technically, they are compatible… But it was simply a bad match, and they have no plans to leave anytime soon. Don’t you think they’ll come up with a new trademark for their freight company as a result of this?

Guess they’ll just sleep in the hall…

What is it about these hotels that makes them so fun and exciting? It’s probably because staying in a hotel for most of the time indicates that you’re on vacation. However, if you’re traveling for business, it’s a different story entirely.

Guess they’ll just sleep in the hall…

Guess they’ll just sleep in the hall…

However, the person in this picture is unlikely to get a good night’s sleep. The legend on the wall points them in the direction of their room, but a glance at their key reveals that their room does not exist. We’re hoping they didn’t want the room to serve them.

Something’s afoot here.

Getting dressed in the morning can be difficult, especially if you’re attempting to do so before you’ve had your first cup of coffee. That is, however, what makes it so useful for slides.

Something’s afoot here

Something’s afoot here.

All you have to do is put your feet in, and you won’t have to worry about shoelaces. Look, these slippers are even labeled left and right for your convenience. But wait a minute… something doesn’t seem quite right… But, oh well. Maybe it’ll be okay if they cross their ankles and hope for the best?

Tall people problems

Tall people have always gotten the short end of the stick in life. They always ask ridiculous questions like, “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

They aren’t even allowed to take a shower in peace, as the gentleman in this picture shows. This shower was clearly designed for smaller people, and this tall man will have to really dunk his head down just to wash his hair.

Garbage, compost, and recycling?

This trash can is extremely considerate. It clearly cares about the environment, as waste, recyclables, and compost openings are all separated. However, upon closer inspection, we can’t help but suspect that someone will actually come around later and sort through the items.

Garbage, compost, and recycling?

Garbage, compost, and recycling?

Based on that arm peering through the opening with its scrap of paper, we’ll have to conclude that all of its contents are going to the city dump after all. But, of course, this is all a trick of the eye… or is it?

Watermelon, were they thinking?!

Summer is watermelon season, and there is no better treat than a juicy and refreshing wedge of seeded red fruit on a hot summer day. It really does hit the spot when the temperature rises into the 80s and 90s.

Water-melon were they thinking?!

Watermelon, were they thinking?!

But after seeing this box, we’re not so sure we know what watermelons are. Since when have they been large, round, and suspiciously resembling pumpkins? Please wait a moment. Someone repurposed a watermelon box for their fall pumpkins. At the very least, they’re resourceful, right?

Yes, it clearly worked.

Here’s what we’d say if we had two scientifically proven facts about puppies to share with you. First and foremost, the puppies are incredibly cute and adorable, and we adore them. And with two? We can’t get enough!

Yes, it clearly worked

Yes, it clearly worked.

They enjoy chewing anything that will get them around their tiny jaws. Fortunately, a spray has been developed to keep your dog from getting into things and chewing on them. However, as evidenced by the numerous small teeth marks on the bottle, it did not appear to work.

Be careful when you sit down.

Nothing beats taking a stroll through the park and then stopping to rest on one of the many strategically placed benches. And who wants to play in a park where there are barren and muddy patches?

Be careful when you sit down

Be careful when you sit down.

That is why sprinkler systems are essential for watering the grass and keeping it green and vibrant. Please don’t take a seat on the bench if the sprinklers go off, or you’ll be in for an unpleasant surprise.

The last step’s a doozy.

This is just wrong on so many levels. First, someone clearly marked these steps with a black bar to prevent anyone from going down them. To be fair, that’s a pretty thoughtful gesture on their part. They did, however, make one minor mistake.

The last step’s a doozy

The last step’s a doozy.

They were completely disorganized, and for some reason, they also painted a black bar across the floor. So is someone being asked to travel around and break a leg? Because, yeah, that’s how you get someone to go down the stairs and break their leg.

An inspiring inscription

This pillow is a work of art in its own right. But, no, seriously, it’s breathtaking. Look at it, with its lovely satin finish, and that lovely red rose on the side, and, uh, wait, what’s it saying?

Someone went above and beyond to ensure that a heartfelt message was printed on this pillow, as evidenced by the lovely cursive script scrawled on top of it. “Sample text.” Bravo, bravo. That is pure poetry that would put Longfellow and Yeats to shame.

Please close the windows.

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

Please close the windows

Please close the windows.

Unfortunately, they failed to consider their ad strategy for this company. Yes, their company’s spokesman is emblazoned on the bus’s side, but what happens when you open the windows to let fresh air in? All of a sudden, it’s very unsettling and creepy.

It’s a ladder…?

Gates are a dependable method of keeping people out and in! It’s your community. By closing and locking the gate, you can help ensure that no one enters an area where they are not welcome. This gate also requires a key code to enter, which means no one can enter without a password.

It’s a ladder…?

It’s a ladder…?

Having said that, there is one minor issue. By evenly spacing the bars on the gate, they were able to create a ladder. Unfortunately, as a result, anyone can now climb over just to get in.

Yeowtch!

If you enjoy coffee, it’s safe to assume that you’ve amassed a sizable collection of coffee mugs over the years. You’re also likely to have witty cups on your side (such as “Don’t talk to me until I’ve had my first cup of coffee!”). in addition to your favorite superheroes.

Yeowtch!

Yeowtch!

Someone thought it would be fun to make a coffee cup in the shape of a super cute blue fox. Aside from those tiny vulpine ears, what else? They’re ready to poke you in the eyes like one of the Three Stooges.

Goodbye, toothbrush

When it comes to bathroom design, many people would probably opt for function over form. So, let’s be honest here. A nice-looking bathroom vanity sounds cool in theory, but this ski-jump-shaped sink is destined to be a disaster.

Goodbye, toothbrush

Goodbye, toothbrush

Someone thought it would be fine to balance their toothbrush on the edge of the vanity, and it swooshed right into the open toilet. Gross, to say the least. Someone appears to need both a new toothbrush and a new vanity sink!

Just a single-blind, please.

When we look at this picture, we are simply perplexed. What was the architect’s intention when he built this wall and installed this window? “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, necessitates its own distinct blind. We’re curious if they’re sold in singles at the hardware store or if someone had to cut a larger set of blinds down here.

Stair-ing at the mistake

When we look at this photo, we can’t help but wonder about a few different things. To begin with, who thought it was a good idea to build this staircase in this manner? Which came first, the white pillar or the handrail?

Stair-ing at the mistake

While we may never know, we can be certain that someone used some inventive design skills to create these stairwells. At least, that’s what we tell ourselves because it doesn’t make sense otherwise.

Books don’t fit? Ah well.

A locker’s primary function is to store all of your school belongings between classes. That’s what you’d think a locker would be designed to do, at the very least. This locker, on the other hand, appears to have missed the memo about its responsibilities.

Books don’t fit? Ah well.

Books don’t fit? Ah well.

When they tried to cram their backpack into the narrow shelves, they quickly discovered that they couldn’t do this simple task. Would it finally fit if they took their belongings out of the bag?

Wasteful packaging? What do you mean?

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

Wasteful packaging? What do you mean?

Wasteful packaging? What do you mean?

You peel it off and then eat the delectable insides. When you look at this picture and shake your head, you can’t help but wonder. Why did these fruits have to be wrapped in single-serving plastic tubs? This is simply a waste of time!

WHY IS IT SO LOUD?

Do you know what one of the most common causes of hearing loss is? It’s constant exposure to noise pollution, such as music played at a deafening volume. However, if you’re trying to turn down the music so you can hear what’s going on around you, you’re in for a rude awakening when you try to adjust the volume on this keyboard.

WHY IS IT SO LOUD?

WHY IS IT SO LOUD?

As we believe, the volume control is entirely possible; it is not our job to identify what the designer was thinking; however, many people inadvertently increased the volume when they intended to decrease it.

First, we zig, then we zag

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

First, we zig, then we zag

First, we zig, then we zag

We hope you’re up for a stroll because the jagged sidewalk’s meandering shape will cost you a few extra seconds. However, you might enjoy the views as you walk through it, huh?

F-i-itness center

Actually, whoever designed this logo is a genius. Who’d have guessed that a dumbbell could be used as an I in the word “fitness”? Unfortunately, they forgot to remove the actual letter when they replaced the I with a dumbbell, except that whoever designed this clever logo caused a minor mishap.

It appears that someone is now saying “fitness center” rather than reading “fitness center.” But, thankfully, the design’s creativity outweighs the minor flaw, so we’ll still give them props for their inventive logo.

No, please don’t

This sign conveys an important message, and we hope you’ve taken the time to read it and consider what it’s trying to tell you. But, even so, seriously, just no. But what is it, exactly? What do you mean no?

No, Please Don’t

No, Please Don’t

So, what do they not want us to do? It is not our place to cast doubt on this sign. Someone thought it was important enough to hang it up high and in red, so it clearly means something. So, whatever you were thinking, don’t do it. Just, no. That is not something you should do. The sign commands it.
