47 People Who Messed It Up For The Rest Of Us

Some people just can't help ruining things for others. From people putting their pet's poop in the office fridge, to people building see-through toilet cubicles, the extent to which some people can mess things up for the rest of the population will both baffle and amaze...and likely irritate!

So, strap in, get yourself a calming beverage such as a green tea, and get ready for 17+ people who messed it up for the rest of us!

"My boss just absent-mindedly poured unroasted beans into a batch of roasted ones. Here's us separating 10,000 hand."

Reddit | CensoryDeprivation

Working in a coffee shop can be enough of a grind (get it?) as it is, let alone when people are making more work than necessary!

"I’m a Wedding DJ and this was listed in their do not playlist."

Reddit | HeyisthisAustinTexas

Whoever it was that played "Happy" by Pharrell at that funeral will never live that down. You wouldn't be able to look the family in the face!

"My school drinking fountains are contaminated with lead."

Reddit | Karli1980

This school is both enriching its students' minds as well as filling them with hazardous chemicals.

"Co-worker who returned a stapler like this"

Reddit | DizzyDrunkDude

Some coworkers just want to watch the office burn, and the worker who did this is one of those people. I bet they also use other people's pens and give them back empty.

Destroying Flowers

Reddit | jayjaynonkle

Some people will do anything for a good photo for social media these days, even including destroying valuable and beautiful wildlife.

"Ignored my girlfriend's texts after a tough shift at work. She took her frustration out on my TV, RIP big guy."

Reddit | zzaman

That is some level of irrational anger right there! I dread to think what she'd do if he sent her to voicemail!

"My dog found my new passport today."

Reddit | Havoksixteen

Well, you'd better be putting those holiday plans on hold until you get a new one, or until you retrieve the pieces when your dog passes them and piece it back together.

Whoever Invented This Transparent Bathroom Stall


When you design a toilet cubicle you literally have one job...privacy!

"The Dominoes app bugged and put NO before each of the toppings I added to my pizza, including the sauce and cheese..."

Reddit | KnoobLord

Why would anyone working in a pizzeria ever make this? They must surely have known that it was a mistake!

"Cleaned the cat's litter box and brought the bag with me to throw away on the way to work. I also brought my lunch. Guess which one came to work?"

Reddit | Eric264

Imagine opening the work fridge and finding that on top of your sandwich!

"Drove by this 300 year old chopped down tree earlier. Apparently someone else thinks it sucks too"

Reddit | lawyersgunznmoney90

I can't even see a reason as to why they would need to cut that down? It may have survived 300 years, but it didn't survive the belligerent arm of a bored lumberjack.

"That smile, that damn smile."

Reddit | HowAboutNo69

Pets love headphones! And when I say they love them, I mean they love destroying them and leaving you podcast-less on your commute to work.

"Local pet supply store gets real."

Reddit | s1s2g3a4

Way to go, previous parents and kids, taking away actually decent kids' privileges. If you can't keep your children in line, then you probably shouldn't add a pet into the mix as well.

"Good thing I have a healthier alternative!"

Reddit | GforGENIUS

I like how the notice says, "Thank you for understanding"at the end, when I really don't understand in the slightest. You presume a lot, sign!

Preventable Flooding


Looks like they're really nailing it over in Gloucestershire. Also, what an offensively obstreperous and British name for a place.

"Only my boyfriend's certification he worked months on. That's all. F*ck you USPS."

Reddit | TheOnesWithin

Ah USPS, destroying and flat out not delivering your mail for over 112 years!

"This is why we can’t have nice things..."

Reddit | maggieberg

How, just how, does no one look at those "candles" and think, "That might be a little inappropriate for the kids"?

"Well deserved."

Reddit | AlpineEsel

Anyone who parks like this deserves everything coming to them! Bad parkers are the most universally hated people on the planet. After traffic wardens, that is.

"When you come home and your house doesn’t smell like pot roast (r.slowcooking)."

Reddit | notpreposterous

I'm also an expert at filling the dishwasher and then forgetting to turn it on, and turning on the kettle without checking to see if there's any water in it first.

"Forgot to put the ice tray back."

Reddit | totallymako

The good news is you won't be running out of ice any time soon.

So, you know, there's that.

"Back pain medicine is on the bottom shelf..."

Reddit | DizzyDrunkDude

You gotta prove just how bad your back ache is before you buy the medicine. It's all one big test.

"My sister's bulldog took a shit in both her boots."

Reddit | enigma94RS

I guess you're wearing your running shoes today, sis.

"My brand new Roomba ran over my puppy’s s*** and proceeded to 'clean' the rest of my home."

Reddit | screamicide

Speaking of dog poop, here's another example of our beloved fur babies ruining our lives.

We still love them, though.

"After our 9 hour car ride, this is the picture my mom took of us at Mt. Rushmore."

Reddit | ZimleGoat

This is just such a mom thing to do. You know she means well, but good God, she couldn't have gotten a worse picture.

"Asked my aunt to take my pic to look like I was holding up the world. She said it was perfect. I didn't check it till we got home."

Reddit | skeletonmaster

Turns out aunts are just as bad at taking pictures as our own mothers. Maybe it runs in every family.

"So my brother decided to take his anger out on something of mine..."

Reddit | Salty_Ninja

Anyone else notice siblings don't ever take out their anger on their own belongings? Interesting. Very interesting...

"I’ve been saving up for a Switch for a couple months now. I finally got it last week and found this in my dog’s mouth this morning."

Reddit | yhandi

Dogs do not care when you bought that thing, or how much it costs. It looks like a chew toy, so they're going to chew that toy to their little hearts' desire.

"Time to move, I guess."

Reddit | Missburr

I just feel bad for whoever ends up in that house after this person moves (which will hopefully be ASAP). The new owner is going to have to deal with this mess that you just know will never, EVER be totally cleaned up.

"Was looking forward to having some nice bread from a local bakery :(."

Reddit | TheWrigglerr

I actually worked in a bakery once, and you'd be surprised how often this can actually happen. Bread-making is a finicky thing, y'all.

"My mom accidentally left her mirror in front of the window over the day. After coming back she found this..."

Reddit | Saftgeaicht

It's posts like these that terrify me and make me feel like literally everything in my home wants to ruin my life.

Mirrors are no exception, apparently.

"Turns out dressing rooms aren’t safe from tall people."

Reddit | emzieees

Would it really cost companies that much more to just build doors that reach all the way from the floor to the ceiling? You know, like doors are supposed to!

"Lake Taupo, New Zealand-Hostel Pool Rules. The safest Pool in all of Middle Earth."

Reddit | Leviathan47

They could really specify whether it is old testament or new testament God who is on duty, as old testament God would probably drop a plague of skin-rotting disease on the planet if you just try and sneak a glass into the pool.

"Local sheriff department has a good sense of humor."

Reddit | can-i-take-a-message

Good to see a community looking out for its members by warning them of speed traps, but unfortunately you've given them the motivation to find a new hiding spot. Those pesky little coppers...

"My uncle was left in charge of me for one day, so he took me to a UGA game and passed me around to a bunch of college kids to spike my hair."

Reddit | Drakonish

That little baby looks absolutely mesmerized. Likely spent the rest of his young life thinking a frat boy was peak form, with visions of keg stands in his future.

"If I hide, they won't know it was me."

Reddit | fooreddit

I looked at this picture and expected to see a dog, but when I saw who was hiding...well, let's just say I was reminded why I don't plan on having kids any time soon.

"Finally some signs of spring today in Øksfjord, Norway. The cars are beginning to show up again."

Reddit | GammelGrinebiter

It's nice to see the native plants returning in springtime. Give it a little more time and they'll start to bloom again!

"People around here aren't very creative."

Reddit | gullyspark343

"So you're gonna turn right on Old Old Alabama Road-"

"Don't you mean Old Old Old Alabama Road?"

"No, that's next to Old Old Old Old Alabama Road, Old Old Alabama Road is next to Old Alabama Road."

"Oh, okay. Got it, I think."

"Screw you grocery store! I won't fall for that."

Reddit | I_poop_in_10_seconds

Sure you won't, but imagine all the people who will. That's the beauty of these things: Even if you realize this, you know there are some people who fully didn't.

"Hitchhiker in North London today."

Reddit | jedgarn1990

At least with an outfit like that you can be pretty sure they're not a murderer. Plague doctors help people, silly, and maybe you'll get to pet one of their leeches!

"Aren’t we all."

Reddit | Jtaimelafolie

This had no business making me laugh as hard as it did. Yeah, whatever this coaster is advertising, I sure hope you're made of ingredients.

"Who said Ferraris aren’t family cars."

Reddit | Gezmid

Listen, if that slot wasn't meant for babies then why does a baby fit so perfectly inside it, hmm?

"This kid is going places."

Reddit | mikelikesmemeslol

I see a future in business for this kid. Start charging for your time and attention now. That's a precious resource that no one should take from you for free.

"My dad decided to recreate my maternity shoot."

Reddit | no_compearison

Instead of staring out at his food-baby, he looking out onto a...closed blind? So much symbolism, truly an artist.

"Why won’t it scan?"

Reddit | Scoooobs1

If you're going to wear a shirt that looks like a QR code out in public, at least have the decency to have it link to something. Even if it's just a rickroll, it'll be worth it.

"Found this grocery list outside a store...let’s hope these people aren’t homeschooling."

Reddit | wolf1799

I don't know about you, but I think I'll be adopting "mayoh" into my vocabulary from here on out. "Wader" is also incredibly good.

"Duck you, I won't do what you tell me."

Reddit | XOH94

The duck decided he would be the exhibit. Come witness this rare and foreign species,

"We wanted him to be 'Clifford the Big Red Dog' for Halloween. It didn't work out like we planned."

Reddit | polarbearpuppy

As if a random pink dog isn't an equally good Halloween costume? Is he a reference to something? No, but you can't tell me it isn't still impressive.
