There are millions of businesses with millions of employees, from the CEO to the person stacking the shelves. All businesses rely on the devotion of their staff to do their jobs well, but what happens when someone leaves them behind?
In no time at all, you find yourself on social media like Facebook and making the headlines of the hilarious or devious videos. From stacked items that weren't supposed to be to the methamphetamine ad in South Dakota, these people had jobs, but hardly stayed there for long.
1. Which way is the exit?
The work: Labeling an exit sign
The fault: Having placed the arrow in the wrong direction
The cost: dollars *.
Signs in the form of arrows can be very practical and useful for customers in a store. Indeed, who has never had a hard time finding the exit in a department store or hypermarket the first time they went there? Hence the importance of good signage. When you bring in the wrong provider in this area, this is what it can do.
Exit Sign @ u / FerretFarm / Reddit.com
This raises more questions than answers. Is the exit left or right? Maybe in the back or in the front? Either way, disgruntled employees must have been guiding totally disoriented customers all day long, which isn't really the best advertisement for this brand.
2. This is dedication
The job: Write "7" correctly on the sign.
The fault: Having written "9".
The cost: 100 dollars.
In the consumer world, there is so much competition that it can be difficult for companies to differentiate themselves. Large, bold signs can be advertising tools that showcase your business, as long as their messages are true.
9 Days A Week @barbwmn / Pinterest.com
Hiring someone to paint a sign on your store wall that shows the brand's dedication to their customers is one thing, but what about when it says you're open 9 days a week? Enough to challenge more than one!
3. 3rd place
The work: Create a nice medal
The fault: "3rd" instead of "3rd"
The cost: The joy
Arriving in third position is hard enough to accept, so if in addition your medal contains an error in its designation… Imagine the disappointment of not winning and being rewarded with this junk trophy. Life is sometimes very cruel.
3st Place @ crazipanda156 / Pinterest.com
On the other hand, it's not every day that you can hang such an object in your wardrobe. Other losers may have medals that say "3rd" but you don't. You are the only and happy owner of the “3rd” medal and this one, no one can take it away from you - even if you might have wished you had never won it in the end .
4. You forgot a space
The job: Create a nicely maintained lawn
The fault: Not having mowed the grass under the cone
The cost: 5 minutes to cut the forgotten grass and the costs to reseed.
It is not always easy to create a well-kept lawn, but, in defense of this landscaper, he has at least succeeded in making the area around the cone nice and neat. This employee, obviously already exhausted in the middle of the week, decided that moving this orange cone would require too much effort.
You Forgot a Spot @lensvid / Pinterest.com
The orange cone therefore remained on the grass for months, because when removed, the grass had grown six inches below the cone. There was also a dead zone where the base of the cone lay. It might not take more than five minutes to mow the grass, but reseeding could be very expensive.
5. I almost succeeded
The job: Painting a street with the right designations
The fault: Having painted completely asymmetrically
The cost: 50 dollars* to repaint.
If you are into symmetrical and logical things, this photo is not for you. We have all witnessed botched paint jobs on the streets of our city. With the millions of yellow and blue markings that must be affixed to concrete - there's bound to be an error or two that can slip in at one point or another.
Almost Got It @punkrocke / Pinterest.com
However, this one is extraordinary, as we are not sure what the painters wanted to do here. The square of yellow paint (very smart who can tell what it is for) is crossed by two lighting and cable boxes. The painter had the merit of trying to reinsert the missing part of the yellow square… but in the wrong place. Repainting this should cost around fifty euros, judging by the surface.Advertising
6. I think you forgot something
The work: Asphalt a new road
The fault: Forgetting to pick up the shovel
The cost: More than 500 dollars *.
Potholes are the nemesis of motorists, so when local authorities finally decide to rebuild the road, everyone rejoices. Of course, the job has to be done right to make sure the road doesn't look like a Swiss Emmental a few years later, but generally the pros know what they're doing, right?
Shovel In Road @dawnweatherup / Pinterest.com
Not always. In this case, everything had gone off without a hitch until a brilliant mind forgot to pick up the shovel it had put down. The result: this disaster on a road that had been perfectly repaired. This is not something that can be concealed, and fixing such a blunder will not be cheap, either.Advertising
7. A magician was there
The work: Place an advertising poster
The fault: To have placed it in the wrong direction
The cost: More than 1000 dollars*.
Putting up posters is not an easy task, which is probably why we are seeing more and more digital signage in big cities. That said, the traditional 4 × 3 posters still exist, which means there are still people whose job it is to stick these giant posters.
Billboard Fail @crispycrunchybacon / Imgur.com
Unfortunately for this person, she clearly had a very bad day. Not only is the poster stuck upside down, putting it back in place is going to be relatively expensive. Pray for this employee who must have been exhausted that day. Hopefully he was able to find a self-service employee position at Carrefour .Advertising
8. The best spokesperson of all time
The work: Spokesman for the President
The fault: Not speaking on behalf of the President
The cost: Dignity
Reaching the top in politics is no easy task. Getting a job with the President of the United States is almost like trying to win the lottery. However, the lucky few who do find themselves in the crosshairs in the most critical situations. Take the example of the President's spokesperson.
Wavey Windows @ u / lostproton / Reddit.com
His job is to speak out on thorny issues so the Speaker doesn't have to do it himself, but what if he can't speak for the Speaker at all? CNN really capitalized on this moment with a most ironic headline that quickly went viral on sites like Twitter .
9. What if we changed the rules?
The job: Using simple markings
The fault: Confusing arrows
The cost: Reduced sales
The settings of major household appliances are becoming more and more difficult to grasp these days. While it is a little difficult to guess what this particular element represents, we can say, on the other hand, that it is incredibly confusing. The down arrow to decrease or decrease, and the up arrow to increase.
Washing Machine Reduce to Increase @ u / FaehBatsy / Reddit.com
This totally mind-blowing situation could have been avoided if a head of the design department had fired Bud the night before. We're not sure, but it's a safe bet that such a mistake had an impact on product sales. Appliances are supposed to make our life easier, not make it more difficult, right ?!Advertising
10. What a great deal!
The work: Reducing the price of milk
The fault: Raising the price by mistake
The cost: Dignity
We all know that shopping at the right time can be a bargain, but imagine walking around the dairy aisle only to find that the milk pack has gone down to $ 18?
Milk on Sale @ u / Newbo91 / Reddit.com
It's not about pulling the ambulance here, but printing prices using a label maker isn't rocket science, especially since most of them do the math for you in locations. stores like Carrefour. Customers must have enjoyed that day!Advertising
11. The shoulders… on the head!
The work: Correctly tiling
The fault: Incorrect laying of the tiling, wrong pattern
The cost: More than 100 dollars and more *.
If you've ever tried DIY, you know that tiling is not something to be taken lightly. It can take a while for things to line up perfectly, and one wrong move is enough to ruin everything. However, it is difficult to excuse such horror.
Subway Wall Lady @RecreoViral / Pinterest.com
Everyone appreciates an image of beautiful tiling, well aligned, but in general, aren't the shoulders and head supposed to be aligned correctly? Unless this photo was taken by Henry VIII, there is no excuse for it. On the other hand, she makes a funny snap for Facebook .
12. Redbull gets you high
The job: Hanging up a poster for Redbull
The fault: Having placed it upside down
The cost: More than 20 dollars *.
Putting up advertising posters is a monotonous and mechanical job, but someone has to “stick to it”. It's not very clear what happened here, but it looks like the installer in question was in such a rush to move on to the next poster that he didn't think much of how to paste this one. .
Upside Down Redbull Sign @ u / -PokePuff05 / Pinterest.com
We all knew Redbull gave wings, but what we knew less was that he could also get high at times. At least it made passersby smile, even though that person's boss must have been pissed off. Not to mention the leaders of Redbull ...
13. Do not stack
The job: Putting these boxes away correctly
The fault: Having them stacked when they shouldn't be
The cost: The post, potentially hundreds of euros of damaged goods
When a product's packaging says in large letters "Do not stack", it is probably because the product it contains is not designed to withstand a heavy load. The person who delivered these items must have left their glasses at home that day.
Stacked Do Not Stack Boxes @ u / KevenM / Reddit.com
By taking the time to read the inscriptions on the boxes, they would quickly have understood their mistake. Instead, it looks like they've gotten on their way merrily, before one person finds out and laughs at this sheer idiocy.
14. A flaw in the matrix
The job: Making beautiful windows
The fault: Having made horrible windows
The cost: More than 2,000 dollars*.
Making a building pleasing to the eye is not as easy as it looks. There are many things that come into play between plans and reality. In this case, something must have gone wrong at some point. Instead of beautifully adorned and passionately crafted windows, the end result was more of an abstract mess.

Was it intentional? It is difficult to know who to blame: the architect who had a different "vision" that was not translated, or the workers who did not know how to follow the instructions. Either way, that's a no on our part. We will stick to the traditional double glazing and we will largely be satisfied with it.
