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.
1. Way out of bounds
Is this a new kind of trick shot?
2. That’s one way to put it
I’m all for challenging the traditional education system, but this seems a little extreme.
3. Just wow
This is just plain disrespectful.
4. Now you’ve got it in writing
Someone else’s laziness just might work to your advantage.
5. Quite the cover up
I guess that’s one way to save money on cutting grass.
6. Hope you can swim
It’s a sad day for bikers here.
7. I mean… I guess?
If deer are horses, then why can’t I ride them?
8. Mixed signals
Who knew washing instructions could be multiple choice!
9. Modern art
Your printing issues just might make it into the MoMA.
10. Come on, guys
That’s not what I call accessibility.
11. Look at this great deal
That’s one way to save, for sure.
12. Spelling is irrelevant
Ah, yes. The beauty of the “SOTP” sign.
What kind of deranged sociopath do you have to be to do this?
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?
