It turns out that you really can put your own spin on things but sometimes you have only one simple job to do – especially when that je ne sais quoi is something that no one ever thought of before. At least the rest of us feel a little smarter at their expense, right? Just one look at these ‘you had one job fails’ will make you feel like you’re truly winning at life.
Is that hard to do these simple tasks? Apparently, these people found it to be the most difficult tasks of all time. At least it makes us feel like geniuses when we think we could have probably done a better job than them. They should have put a little bit of extra thought and effort and all their problems would be solved. Come on people up your game!
Clothing ads can often feel a little strange. Models spend hours dressing up in different outfits and pulling all kinds of poses to try and sell us the clothes. It can be tough to make outfits stand out against the rest. That’s why some people have pushed the boundaries of fashion further than ever.
However, we never knew that a magician was needed to pull off this new outfit. All you need to do is get in the box, wait to be cut in half, and then you’ll look just as good as this model. Perhaps the person who put this billboard up needs to go back to bed for a couple of hours.
Copy and paste
We know that we’re not all the next Bob Ross, but that doesn’t stop us from giving it our all every now and then – even if it does involve using crayons to make our masterpiece. Sadly, it looks as though the factory workers had enough when it came to labeling these crayons. Rather than change the color, a simple copy and paste was all that was needed to get the job done.
Now, you have to play a simple game of ‘color or word’ to try and work out what crayon you need for your masterpiece. We just hope nobody colorblind ended up with this pack of crayons, or they may just end up with a green sunshine and red bananas.
Eyes on you
Do you remember hearing that Disneyworld is a magical place where dreams come alive? One trip to any kind of Disney-themed store is enough to make us feel like we’re part of the magic. However, it turns out that this store is the place of nightmares instead. They never said they were pleasant dreams, as Nala goes to prove.
It seems this stuffed animal would be better suited to a part in The Exorcist rather than the Lion King. This person had one job – don’t frighten the kids! Unfortunately, it looks like they read the memo wrong and decided to freak as many children out as possible. This Nala is going to haunt our dreams forever.
It doesn’t take Gordon Ramsay to realize that everything might not be as it seems with these buns. We just hope that someone checked the bags before they got home and discovered they would be eating a very long, thin burger, or a short and round hot dog. Thankfully, cooking lets us put our own spin on meals. We just never knew that meant changing their shape, too.
We can imagine the confusion at a barbecue with these! All this worker had to do was put the right buns in the right packets, but it seems like they were having a seriously off day. Nevermind, there’s always tomorrow. Unless you get fired… Then there’s no tomorrow.
Wave the white flag
Many of us love to buy things that have been made in our home country, to show a bit of patriotic spirit and keep our economy strong. So, when this person purchased this boxed good, they were pleased to see an American flag on it. That means it’s from America, right? Well… No. Turns out, this item was made in China.
Except, for some reason, they didn’t feel the need to put a Chinese flag on it. They went with the good ol’ stars and stripes instead. What does it mean?! Perhaps whoever made this box flunked out of geography. They’re going to need to brush up on their flags if they want to keep their job.
Boom goes the dynamite
It is probably better not to quit your day job after showing off skills like this. Oh, wait… Maybe it is best to resign after all? We’re glad to see that another worker found the time to snap this incredible workmanship…
But it might be time to call the fire service and run for your lives instead before this hilarious fail turns into a big kaboom. We’re going to back off from this, before we end up toast!
State of confusion
It can be easy to lose yourself in the store and grab anything off the shelf. It’s been a long day, and we’re ready to get home and settle with a nutritious before heading to bed.
Wait a second, this isn’t the watermelon we thought we were getting – unless scientists really have been working hard in the lab. If so, they definitely deserve a pay rise after creating watermelon that looks exactly like corn.
This store is apparently so dedicated to serving their customers that they are open an extra two days a week. No, we don’t mean they are open at the weekend, we mean they have literally created another two days to make sure their customers get the service they deserve.
As long as those extra days are part of the weekend, then we are all on board with the idea. We just want to know how they cram so many days in!
A tough decision
There are some moments in time where you need to step back and wait for someone else to go first just so you can understand what to do. Do you break the rules and go through the ‘Do Not Enter’ sign…
Or do you patiently wait outside of the door with no hope of ever going inside? Either way, you’re going to need to make a decision, because you can’t stand out there forever.
Taking the prize
Sometimes, there is nothing quite like earning a medal. At last, you have a way to show off your achievements to the world. What’s that around our neck? That’s just our 3st place medal.
Yes, you heard that correctly: 3st. We’re not sure what that means either. As long as there’s still a spot on the podium, then it’s a win-win situation. Perhaps the person who made this was so sick and tired of coming third, they wanted to spice things up a little.
All for show
It’s been a long day, and you’re ready to head home and grab a cold glass of something delicious to drink. Sound familiar? You better be prepared for a bigger drink than you ever imagined as it turns out there’s only one option with this drink:
Open the carton and down the entire thing. Yes, you might have thought those lids were there to close the carton, but it seems they’re actually just for show.
A cup of bad stuff
Some of us can’t imagine starting the day without a big cup of coffee to get the engines running. It might be best to avoid this mug until later in the day when you have a little more patience for someone who had one job: to put the handle on the cup.
It appears they needed some more instructions with this masterpiece. That’s right; handles go on the outside… It really isn’t that hard of a concept to grasp. Is it?!
Need some space
Being a road user means we need to learn how to respect one another’s space. That is until it comes to this sign. It turns out that some sign placers just want to watch the world burn.
That or they really wanted to spice up their ride. Why cycle along a dreary road when you could turn it into an obstacle course instead? We just hope that the cyclists were looking up before they hit into the thing.
In the name of love
Not only did someone forget how to spell a four-letter word, but it turns out they also failed to notice the massive sign that might have given them a big clue as to how it is actually spelled.
On the other hand, this parking lot might have been forced to install the sign after so many people sat for hours trying to work out what the road was trying to tell them to do.
The question is: do you have the spirt that it takes to be a part of this cheer squad? It seems that you don’t need any spelling skills to be a part of their team. No, all you actually need is the enthusiasm to get up there and show off your creation to the rest of the school.
Perhaps cheer practice was interrupting their English classes? Unfortunately, we think it’s back to school for these girls!
Watch the world burn
It looks as though one neighborhood had enough of diving underwater every time it rained in the area. All they needed to do was install a simple storm drain. All it would take is a little work, and the town would soon be saved from weeks of floodwater.
If only they had chosen anywhere else other than the highest point of the park. It looks like this water has no intention of funneling nicely into the drain. It’s gonna flood, whether you like it or not.
Round in circles
All these new pieces of tech can get a little confusing. Sometimes, even the most tech-savvy of us need a little help when it comes to working out how to use them all. Thankfully, this remote came with full instructions.
Merely press the right arrow to go left and the left arrow to go right. Or was that follow the left word to go right and the right word to go left? Oh, never mind.
Two for the price of one
We can see DC fans everywhere recoil in horror as they realize that someone out there really did get Batman and Superman confused. However, it might be easier than we once thought.
After all, one superhero’s outfit resembles a bat while the other has a giant ‘S’ on their chest…. Nope, we can’t do it. There’s just no excusing a mistake like this bag. We really hope no kid wore this to school; imagine the shame.
The extra mile
Mmm, mac and cheese. There is a good reason that this cheese-filled meal has been a fan favorite all these years. It’s delicious, filling, and is the ultimate comfort food.
However, you might have to decide if you want one or two slices of packet cheese with this meal as it turns out the kitchen staff took all the wrong shortcuts. There is just something about this that is turning our stomachs. This is how to ruin a perfectly good meal, ladies and gents.
Saving precious time
If you’ve ever found yourself wishing for the day that you don’t have to waste time opening a bathroom stall and doing your business in private, then look no further; it seems as though all of your dreams have been answered at once.
Now, all you need to do is walk in, do your thing, make polite conversation with everyone else in the bathroom, and leave. It’s as simple as that. Yeah, we’re going to pass on this one.
Same planet, different continent
We might not be geography experts, but even we’re pretty sure that you might get a few strange looks if you came back from your travels with this t-shirt. So you went to Asia? Which part did you enjoy? Was it Egypt or Madagascar?
Now, we’re starting to wonder if you ever went away in the first place. Next time, it might be best to skip labeling the continents all together.
You’re finally there. You’ve made it all the way to the top of the stairs only to learn that you’ve accidentally entered the world limbo championships by mistake. You are left with two choices.
You can either walk all the way back to the bottom and admit defeat or put your back-bending skills to the test with a potentially dramatic outcome. This person had one job… How could it have gone so terribly wrong?!
Interesting choice of names
The news can be a great way to learn all about what’s going on in the world around us. It can also be the place to help catch criminals when the police need a little help from the public.
Sadly, it might be best to release their actual names if you stand a chance of bringing them to justice. Unless his mom just really liked the name Firstname for her son? You never know.
One small problem
The corner cupboards of the kitchen have left many of us confused over the years. It seems as though all that extra space can go to waste as no one knows how to kit out the cupboard. That was until someone broke all the rules and put drawers there anyway.
If only they had thought about the size of their handles and they could have been onto a winner. Unfortunately, this just means that the contents of the drawers are now stuck in there forever.
Upside down creation
It’s a hot day. You’ve been looking for a way to cool down, and then you finally spot it out the corner of your eye: the ice cream section. You rush to the freezer and choose the perfect sweet treat for the hot day.
We just hope you’re prepared to get sticky hands and feel disappointment. The best bit? The creators even had a picture to follow and they still managed to mess it up. Oh well, it’s still ice cream.
A simple fix
Have you ever had that feeling when your life is falling apart, and you wish that you could stick a bandaid over it all to fix the cracks? While many of us have dreamed of things being that easy, it turns out that someone brought our idea to life.
Sure, they could have spent hours fixing the column, or they could grab some plastic wrap and hope that no one ever knocked the bricks.
The power of rock
Working in a store can be tough when you have no idea what you’re doing and need to spend the entire day hoping that no one calls you out on your mistakes. It appears as though someone was asked to label the new games.
However, it might not take long to realize that Assassin’s Creed probably isn’t about assassins coming together to start a rock band. It might make a great game, though. In fact, we’re sold!
No privacy here
If you’re looking for privacy, then it might be time to find another place to hide. That’s right; whoever installed this door handle really wanted to make sure they had access to the room at all times.
Many people might think they tried out their handle before they left it for the rest of the world, but these locksmiths have places to be. At least you don’t ever have to worry about not getting out in a hurry. No, we’re still not selling it are we?
Saving on space
Sure, there are great big words printed along the side of the box that seem almost impossible to miss, but it appears that some people need a little more help when it comes to following the rules.
It might be time to invest in some flashing signs and giant neon arrows to highlight there might be some important instructions to follow. We hope the person who stacked these ‘do not stack’ boxes doesn’t have to follow any other important instructions in their lives.
Ignoring the rules
It appears as though someone wanted to teach this car a lesson. We get it. There are ‘no parking’ cones at the side of the road, yet someone decided to park there anyway.
Perhaps this isn’t a case of someone forgetting they had one job to do, but is actually a road worker who’s had enough of people who break the rules? Not all heroes wear capes but some of them do paint cars with yellow stripes.
That will do
Taco Bell is a guilty pleasure for many. There’s something about those delicious tacos that keep us coming back time and time again. That is until you realize that even the workers have given up trying anymore.
While that cardboard packet might have seemed like the perfect way to enjoy your meal, it turns out that it might now be an excuse to give up caring about the customers. Do you like deconstructed tacos? No, we don’t either.
There’s no getting out of this parking lot until you’ve paid for your ticket. That is unless you scoot over to the left a little. Okay, now you’re free to leave as you please.
While installing a barrier might have seemed like a good idea at the time, it appears they might have been better holding onto some of the budget to pay for the longer arm instead. We have a feeling no one is going to be fooled by this.
Sleeping with the fishes
There are some things that we never know we need until they are right in front of us. A floating phone could be one of them. The best bit? You only need to pay $129 for the privilege.
Sadly, it seems as though this display might be a little misleading. It’s time to head back to the drawing board with this one before someone watches their new phone sink to the bottom of the ocean.
Catching the action
There are some moments in time that are too important to miss. It looked as though it was all go as journalists from across the world gathered to get that all-important interview.
Journalists often need to be at the top of their game and prepared to be at the front line at the drop of a hat. Next time, it might be important to check you’ve actually grabbed your mic and not the remote control from your TV. Oops.
A job half done
Sometimes, we need to give ourselves a little pat on the back. It can be easy to become a number in the office, and our boss might not always notice our hard work.
Sadly, it’s pretty important to finish the job before you give yourself the afternoon off work for a good day at the factory. At least someone was pleased with their efforts – even if it was themselves. We hate to break it to them, but the job was not well done at all.
