If you're moderately sane, somewhat intelligent person, your mouth will drop when you read this list. It's just a sad, somewhat surprising reminder that people aren't always the brightest. And when I say not the brightest, I mean they're really, really not smart. Like the electrician of this building, who might have just left his plumbing job and made a small mistake (don't worry, I'll have an electricity joke for you later).
But if you read this list and laugh or even shake your head a bit, congratulations! You are one of the people who give me hope. You're one of the few people who has a shred of common sense left, which is exactly what the world needs these days. There's been a shortage of common sense recently, and you'll see exactly what I mean in the upcoming slides. Really, these fails will leave you speechless.
Anyway, here's the electricity joke I promised: When seeing how poor of a job the electrician did in installing an outlet, people were shocked. I know. It was an obvious one, but I made it anyway.
It's weird that an iPhone can't be put inside a microwave. I mean, it's not like it's made out of tin foil. But seriously, where did you hear that charging your phone in the microwave was a thing? Was it from your bully of a brother who's always trying to prove that he's the smart one in the family? Because that would actually make sense.
Traveling to a foreign country where they don't speak your language can be difficult, especially when it comes to ordering food. The language barrier can pose a real problem if you want "chicken" but not "chicken feet". And don't even think about asking for substitutes... that's dangerous territory. We've all seen some funny lost-in-translation examples on menus, but this one may take the cake.
I mean, don't you hate when you go to a restaurant and ask for Whatever, and they're all, "Sorry, we don't have Whatever. Is Pepsi okay?"
