12+ People Who Proved DIY Stands For 'Don't Involve Yourself'

Diply 20 Jul 2018

Some people are handy, and those people are what I like to call, "Not me." I can barely keep my phone charged and my shoes on the right feet (The left ones are always fine, for some reason).

But, at least I can admit I have a problem with this stuff (not with the dad jokes, though, I'm on top of it). There are plenty of people out there who don't realize that their handiwork is a disaster.

These are their stories.

1. This is actually a really good place to start, since this person is definitely equipped for every other entry on this list.

But, keep in mind that every other attempt on this list ends in miserable failure. So, there's that.

2. This is a real shame, because I feel like there's not a lot of other industries that he can work in with a name like that.

And I don't think any new patients will be colon on him anytime soon.

3. Well, palm trees would've looked very distinctive, but I get the feeling you'll be catching plenty of attention with this too.

I'm never calling Weed Own't Care Landscaping ever again.

4. I guess the idea is to keep you from getting lonely on long drives? Sure, if you say so.

But it seems to me that letting other people see this (and then leave immediately) is going to create more and more lonely drives. It's counter-productive.

5. There's no way around it: This person has reached a level of lazy that is downright aggressive.

In a way, you really have to admire their dedication to do as little as possible.*

6. See, you could save a lot of time and effort just doing what I do.

Just put your pizza straight into your existing briefcase, and use garlic bread to absorb the sauce residue. Lifehack.

7. That's the ultimate tragedy of Ikea. Just getting through that labyrinth of furniture and discounted meatballs is enough to leave your brains dribbling out your ears.

This was doomed from the start.

But hey, apparently there are way worse mistakes you can make involving Ikea besides a messed-up shelf.

And you can't even replace this one when it inevitably disappoints you. My parents tried.

8. "I don't know why we hired Gary for this job. He's got the depth perception of a rhinoceros.

"Listen, get him back out here. This time, he's walking with a roller duct-taped to his back."

This is why the machines are gonna have all our jobs one day, Gary.

We gotta make sure all robots are named Gary so I don't have to think up any new insults.

9. This dating lifehack is making me Netflix and ill.

Seriously. No condom comes with a hair in the package, meaning that this is almost 100% off the floor. Gross.

10. I was so stoked about these until I got to the end and realized that they're salt shakers.

Honestly, it's 2018. Why do we not have actual Sprite shakers yet?

11. You realize water exists, right?

It's the only car in existence that uses shower caps instead of hub caps.

OK, I'm sorry about that joke. But at least it's not worse than the car.

12. I...have no idea if this might actually be effective.

Like, when I think of an app, do I think of the color? Why am I having an emotional crisis right now?

13. My man. I'm so sorry. I hate to see you like this.

Is there any way we can fashion something out of those cones and caution tape? Like a catapult or a suspension bridge?

14. See? Quality craftsmanship can usually be identified by its subtlety.

What? No, not this metallic hack job. Just all the "great, subtle" jokes in this article.*

*Editor's Note: We added the quotes. You all remember the shower cap thing.
