17 Times Stupid People Ruined Things For Others

-

We all know at least one person who messed things up for everyone else. Here are some of those dummies:

1. Failing at adulting.

We just lost remote working privileges cuz someone in a different office can’t handle being an adult.

Same here. Used to be that I could pack up my laptop, tell my supervisor I’d be online remote tomorrow, and just work from home.

Then some fuckwit confused his work laptop with his personal and watched a shit ton of porn on his work laptop on the clock. A week later and all of our laptops and docking stations are gone and replaced with towers.

2. Valentine's.

Valentine’s Day is newly not allowed at my school because last year kids kept cutting girls’ balloons. One kid did that to the wrong girl, and the next day she came to school with a knife and stabbed him.

3. Please stop pooping in the showers.

thechive.com

My university dorm orientation meeting was full of weirdly specific rules. The ones I can remember are:

No pickaxes (some student attacked another student with a pickaxe)

No piranhas (other fish were allowed but it turns out dangling sensitive … parts into piranha tanks is irresistible to certain college students)

No pooping in the showers

No lowering/raising things into your room via the window (my best friend’s dad turned out to possibly be the reason for this one, he used to sneak beer in via rope and bucket)

Please for the love of god don’t poop in the showers.

4. Coke.

Someone told me this story. At one factory where they make Coke, they let you keep any of the bottles that dropped. So, meaning it was free. When they let this happen people would intentionally drop the bottles to take home. Then they took away the generous policy.

5. It's hot man.

thechive.com

I work in a warehouse I’m not allowed to wear shorts in because one day the bosses came around and decided it didn’t look professional for the shippers to be wearing shorts. Keep in mind there are only 4 of us here and the boss only comes to visit once a year or so, we also only sell to stores and very rarely have to deal with the end user. Makes +30C days kinda suck.

Edit: ok guys I’m taking you up on your suggestions and buying a kilt.

6. It doesn't matter if you are a genius...

thechive.com

Even Google had to stop their “free dinner delivery when working late” policy because people were staying just late enough for the policy, ordering enough for their whole families, and promptly leaving when the food arrived. A small minority of people just fuck everything up for everyone.

7. Is that a chicken???

thechive.com

No backpacks in the gym, ever. Because of one guy.

It was the homecoming pep rally and the principal had come up to the mic for his speech. Suddenly there was a sound of wings flapping and squawking. As if out of nowhere, a live chicken was released onto the gym floor. The principal, vice principal, and several staff members began attempting to catch the chicken. Then it got better.

The kid in charge of the music was in cahoots with the chicken kid. He immediately switched the music to the Benny Hill theme. So the administration is literally chasing a chicken around the gym to the Benny Hill music. It was chaos.

No more backpacks in the gym.

8. Man...

thechive.com

Rudy Stanko took away the closest thing the US ever had to an Autobahn. Before 1974, and between 1995 and 1998, Montana did not set specific speed limits on their highways, with the expectation that people should drive within reason. Even if you did get pulled over, the ticket was small and didn’t stay on your record.

So if the stretch of road was wide open and there wasn’t much traffic, you could pretty much drive as fast as you wanted. Rudy got a ticket that would’ve cost him $70 and not stayed on his driving record. Instead of just paying, he fought all the way to the Montana Supreme Court, where they ruled that the state had to set a solid speed limit.

9. You ruined the bar for everyone.

thechive.com

Local bar had wooden nickels that got you free drinks or could be used later if you didn’t finish a bucket. Someone made counterfeits. They were good counterfeits, but just the same.

Ruined it for the entire bar! All for a $2.50 beer.

10. Ew.

In the Teletech company handbook it clearly states that vintage golf pants from a thrift store are NOT considered dress casual because of one asshole. I am that asshole.

I worked for an office that tie and jacket were required and this old hippie guy I worked with would go to goodwill and thrift stores and buy the worst looking they had just to prove a point.

11. The school is not about that vape life.

thechive.com

My school recently banned people from charging their phones because some people were charging their vapes. Needless to say it hasn’t stopped anyone from vaping.

12. What a sight... to not see.

thechive.com

My company no longer has a Halloween costume contest among the locations in the area because of me. We all dressed up as X-Men. I was Mystique. We got complaints.

13. Some people are cheap.

thechive.com

My husband’s work used to give each worker a $50 grocery gift card to use toward their Christmas dinner. People complained about having to pay tax on that gift card so they took it away, now we get nothing. What an improvement, thanks guys!

14. So, do you wanna build a snowman?

thechive.com

So I was around 11/12 years old. It was winter here in Sweden, and often around -10C or colder. When arriving to school, most of us would rush inside to escape the cold. Well, some mannerless b*tches kept misbehaving, so the teachers decided to lock the doors until the first class started. All of us had to wait outside in the cold.

I distinctively remember one day when it was so cold that even my friend’s dark brown hair and nearly black eyelashes turned white. Yet the damn teachers Still. Would. Not. Let. Us. Inside.

15. Oh, well...

National Hockey League: “The Sean Avery rule”

For those unfamiliar with hockey, you’re allowed to stand in front of a goaltender to “screen” him/her (block the goaltenders view of the puck), but the unwritten rule was that you can’t wave your hands and stick in the goalies face.

After Sean Avery did his hands and stick swinging incident, the NHL quickly implemented a written rule against these types of things. Players will now receive a two-minute penalty for Unsportsmanlike Conduct.

Sean Avery was the Troll of the NHL.

16. Privilages make people go crazy.

thechive.com

The store used to give the leftover unsold hotfood. Burritos, rotisserie chicken, rice, beans. Sand whiches, tamales, ribs. Turkey legs, sausages, wings Etc. to the workers at the end of the night. But some asshat started hiding the stuff he wanted for himself so no one else would get it. They changed it to where they just started throwing everything out at the end of the night & discounting it after 8:00

17. Was it worth it?

thechive.com

No microwave popcorn at work because one employee put the popcorn in for the wrong temperature and/or too much time AND left the microwave unattended. The burnt popcorn set off the smoke detector, which triggered the fire alarm system. A call went out to the fire department for a lot of smoke and steam signifying nothing, and one of our buildings was evacuated, wasting everyone’s time.
