Employee Of The Month Is Not In The Cards For These Careless Workers

ADVERTISEMENT

Keeping spirits high during yet another seemingly endless 9-5 filled week is a tough task, so these full-time slackers thought of a creative way to make their, and others’, lives much more entertaining.

Going Bananas

Whoever came up with this sign is probably the best team member to have during a game of Taboo, but they probably should not have been trusted with printing out signs for merchandise in a grocery store. Although ‘long yellow things’ is the most accurate description we can think of, ‘bananas’ would have sufficed.

Step In – If You Dare

The weekly limbo club meetings were held in an underground studio that reeked of the sewage system below. After raising their concerns towards the local municipality and demanding a suitable space would be found for the group, their prayers have been answered and the perfect spot was named the club’s official domain. To make them all feel much more welcome and at home, a bar was placed outside the club’s door, forcing any attendant to earn their way in.

Anonymous Has A Face

Asking to remain anonymous is very common when speaking to press about sensitive matters, but the matter of being unrecognizable goes out the window as soon as one’s face is aired on televisions across the nation. For this reason, we doubt the man in the picture below intended on keeping his identity a secret, which means ‘Name Here’ is either the man’s name and occupation, or the channel’s executive wanted this guy’s 15 minutes of fame to be shorter than the phrase suggests.

The Land Down Under

Topsy-turvy Australia has always had other regions of the world perplexed with its way of living. Whether it is their inexplicable tastebuds that developed a love of marmite, exotic wildlife that is extremely rare, or seasons that are opposite than the ones we are accustomed to, Aussies do everything their way – or no way at all. As can be seen in the picture, Aussies’ Winter footwear is one that is very different than ours – unless this was the job of a rebellious worker from the other side of the world.

job

The Sign Is Clear

Walking up the stairs to the gym, one cannot help but wonder if they would not rather be at home at that exact moment, being a couch potato and binge-watching their favorite show on Netflix. And can we blame them? We are exactly the same. That is why this door’s sign, that definitely was a mistake due to its contradicting message, also acts as a screening process passageway for those who have yet to decide whether they intend on working out or not.

job

True Advertising

Speedo decided that instead of lying with false advertising, they are much better off painting a different picture, of a reliable store here to present things the way they are. Sure, the Kick Junior swimming goggles advertisement could have read that the original price was much higher than the discount one offered now, but for a reason that is beyond our comprehension, the advertisers in charge of this promotion saw things very differently, giving out a conflicting and contradicting message.

job

Not Colorblind Friendly

Instead of using their concept of printing out a label reading the color of the crayon for good, these crayons essentially confused colorblind people all over the world with these misprints. We are big fans of the color yellow, but it is evident that the person who printed out these labels is even more invested in the color than we are. Perhaps the person behind this was sick of racial prejudice and wanted to prove a point by assessing that love is colorblind.

job

Dangerous Path

If this is not an accident waiting to happen, we do not know what is! The person that was put in charge of painting the sidewalk with the bike riding direction should have stopped to think before obeying orders, since there is clearly no logic to what has been painted. It is a good thing the sidewalk is wide enough to enable riders coming from both directions to ride safely, otherwise, this could have been a very dangerous path.

job

As Long As The Pizza Is Hot

Being dedicated to your job is one thing, but this girl is showing so much commitment, she should get employee of the year! Since the pizza place she works at as a delivery girl has a strict ’30 minutes and it’s at your doorstep’ rule, if she was going to be as much as a minute late, the pizza would have been deducted from her salary (which was not as high as one would hope, anyway). Still, there are probably better ways of parking the car than this sideways hazard.

job

You Do The Math

If the kid who received this calculator as a gift is brought up fearing having to deal with numbers and despising anything that remotely constitutes as math, it is probably because whoever positioned the numbers in this calculator caused him to stay clear of anything digit-related for the rest of his life. The numeral trauma could probably be treated after several therapy sessions, but this could have been avoided if the person in charge paid closer attention to what they were doing.

job

Stroke Of Genius

Being a writer is not an easy task, as many people might be quick to assume. It relies greatly on inspiration, which means that if the moment does not strike you right, it could be rather frustrating staring at a blank page without having any words or thoughts that come to mind. The journalist that was put in charge of covering this basketball game probably left the heading for the end, hoping some stroke of genius would hit him – only he evidently forgot to fix this nonsense-jumble that was written initially.

job

Compare Foods

The name of this grocery store is called Compare Foods, but we highly doubt that by that the store owner wanted its employees to actually compare the different types of foods that are available for purchase. Even if this was the entire concept of the place, it is hard to imagine why anyone would ever compare between corn and watermelon – if anything, it makes more sense to defy the well-known phrase and compare apples and oranges.

job

Escape The Landscape

Either the landscape artist who designed this park should be banned from any other urban projects, or the mayor of the city should be canned for not making sure the person hired for the job had a basic grasp of how sewers work. We just hope the sewer was leveled down before it got to pouring even harder since a mistake like this could end up drowning all the trees and plants in the park, in addition to the unbearable mud.

job

Confidence Is Key

As far as passersby are concerned, this could be an ad that is meant to emphasize the importance of self-confidence and feeling comfortable in your own skin. The one dress “you need in your closet, now” could very much be one’s birthday suit, as it is the one you cannot change – so you need to appreciate what you’ve got! On the other hand, this could just be an error made by a lazy employee, who hung up that bold sign and decided to put up the dress the next day.

job

Geography Lesson

Remember that geography teacher that scolded the classroom for not being more familiar with the map of the world? Well, it turns out she was right after all. Never would have this fashion designer thought to check twice the T-shirts that were sent out to the stores, but that just goes to show the importance of double checking. On a more positive note, at least both continents start with the letter A, so we guess it could be relatively easily fixed with a fabric dye.

job

Way To Give Way

Now here is a sight you do not come across often – a sign defying its very own instructions! Reading “give cyclists space”, it is pretty hilarious that whoever positioned the sign here had absolutely no regard as to what was written on it and the fact they were contradicting what was asked in this clearly lit sign. It is a good thing this cart has wheels on it, since it means it was much easier to move, thus making the mistake easier to fix.

job

A Little Privacy Please?

It seems someone should have left clearer instructions for whoever installed the bathroom door, since it is customary that a toilet stall will have a door for more privacy. Since a man using a urinal will stand with their front towards the wall, a door is not always required, as the private areas are mostly hidden as it is. As for toilet seats, even the most open individual probably would not want to excuse themselves without a door attached to the stall.

job

Control The Volume

Modern day technological advances might not be completely comprehensible for everybody, but considering the fact almost every person in a first world country has a smartphone, one would think there would be a consensus about what could be used to record someone – and a remote control for the television would not be it. However, we have to admit that seeing this person stick a remote control in this athlete’s face is absolutely hilarious, so we will give the guy credit for that.

job

Workaholics

We are not sure how employees of this store count their weeks, but as far as the rest of the world goes, a week consists of only 7 days. Perhaps whoever was meant to paint that sign on the wall did not have a stencil for the number 7, so they thought they might as well make do with the template they do have and let buying customers deal with the confusion caused. If anything, this questionable sign could bring in all sort of business from those who are amused by it.

job

Trick Or Treat?

Putting aside the fact this ice cream cone is impossible to eat without getting melted dark chocolate all over your fingers, we would love to run into the employee who felt like pulling a stunt and dipped the cone with chocolate instead of covering the ice cream with the sweet treat. If this was a during Halloween, the person held responsible should be applauded for providing both a trick and a treat, which is rather hard to pull off.

job

Wine Not?

Perhaps whoever positioned this sign reading ‘water’ above the wine bottles was deeply affected by the last Sunday Mass they attended, since turning water into wine was a miracle done by Jesus, not a Walmart employee. Another possible reason for this confusion is that someone with a drinking problem wanted to suggest there is nothing wrong with having a glass or two of wine in the middle of the day – it is just like having a drink of water!

job

Spot The Rebel

If this was an employee of the month test, whoever stacked these cardboard boxes was sure to flunk miserably. There is a clear instruction on the boxes that forbids anyone from stacking them for whatever reason, so we find it hard to think of a reason anyone would ignore the distinct warning. This could be the job of a person who was desperate to lose their job and was unable to do the mature thing, which is step into their employer’s office and hand in their resignation.

job

BBQ Mixup

Culinary tastes change from one country, sometimes to a drastic extent. While some are due to ethnic differences, other food preferences can also be because of climate differences and what is available to grow in the country. The one thing that is hard to imagine others confused about is the concept of which bun shape is intended for what type of BBQ meat. After all, hot dogs are longer and narrower when compared to the flat, circular patty that makes a hamburger. How could anyone get these two confused?

job

Snazzy Ride

To be fair, a sign was most likely put up the previous night, asking those who parked in the street to move their vehicles so that this paint job could be done the next morning. The fact that this car’s owner simply missed the sign or decided to ignore it all together is completely on him. It was probably unnecessary to paint the car across since someone would have to return to the area and finish the job, but our guess is that this was an intentional act of revenge.

job

Blockbuster Bust

Cinema managers, along with professionals in fields like travel bloggers and food critics, probably have one of the most fun occupations out there. When a new film comes out, they are the first ones to watch it, and can always sneak their friends in without having to charge them for seat tickets. Whoever works at this place took their freedom too far, and mixed up the names of the two movies, Suicide Squad and Sausage Party, thus creating an R-rated film and a highly distressing movie.

job

In The Name Of Love

We are going to go out on a limb here and take a wild guess that whoever spray painted the road to say ‘stop’ did not pay close attention to what they were doing, otherwise the job probably would have been done correctly and the road would not have read ‘sotp.’ This is especially funny considering there is clearly a stop sign right above the stop markings on the road, meaning there was no room for confusion as to how the word should be spelled.

job

Heart Breaking News

The local news does it again, but this time a major mistake was made and it is all due to one simple misplacing of a letter. We wonder if the news anchor seen in the picture below pronounced the name of the deceased appropriately, or if he read the incorrect name as was projected into his teleprompter. Although it was not his fault if he did the latter, both probably ended up getting the boot on account of shocking one too many viewers.

job

The Student Becomes The Master

They say teachers change the world one child at a time, but the underpaid educators of the future also have a different role – one they cannot be properly taught themselves, but are only able to acquire over time, through earned experience – the role of knowing how to handle the children. Teaching the required material is one thing, but dealing with adolescent kids who have anything but learning on their minds is quite another, as can be seen in the picture below.

job

Resort Of The Rebellious

The hotel staff at this resort has had enough of being mistreated by the upper management, so they decided to get even in the best way. Instead of setting up a strike or making waves with a loud demonstration, they workers employed on site decided to disobey the rules that were put up to keep order in the establishment. An example of this can be seen in the picture below, where pool chairs were stacked up next to a sign clearly forbidding from doing so.

job

Abnormal Anatomy

This could be a marketing technique to make potential shoppers see the entire ensemble on the model as two separate pieces, but we believe this was the job of a confused billboard hanger who clearly failed his 6th-grade biology quiz on the topic of the human anatomy. Marketing-wise, a lot could be learned from the way the ad is split into two separate pieces that do not connect – it does force the viewer to focus on each item separately.
