14 Awkward Work Mistakes Caused by Severe Laziness

We’ve all been there before. It’s 4:59PM on a Friday, and you’ve pretty much had it with your job. There’s one last task one your list, but it’s not quite right.

Then you wonder, is it really even your job to fix this? Nah, it’s not. Besides, it’s cocktail time! You and your team can just deal with it later.

Later turns into never, and now you’re stuck with shoddy work. Fingers crossed that it’ll get past your supervisor.

Here are 14 awkward work mistakes caused by extreme laziness.

14. This is just basic math

1 + 1 = 4… No wait, 3 – 2 = 5… Hold on, 7 + 3 = 6.

This makes me feel a lot better about accidentally tweeting about Paris Hilton on a company account…. and following Miss Piggy.

But hey, we’re all human. Mistakes happen – we just have to work with each other to move past them. Have you ever made a super awkward mistake at work?
