Certain ideas are born from good intentions and end up going awry. Other ones were just straight-up terrible ideas from the start and someone still went for it.
These pictures prove that not all ideas are good ones. In fact, some of them are painfully bad.
This Man Who Played Himself
In this classic battle of man versus packaging, a fatal error by the man early on allowed the packaging to win.
There was significant collateral damage to the computer mouse inside the packaging and it didn't end up making it.
A Toilet Paper Roll In The Wrong Spot
A heat/air vent in the bathroom is great for keeping the throne room temperate, but installing the toilet paper holder above a floor vent is not a good choice.
Whenever the conditions are right, the blast of air from the vent will send the toilet paper unraveling.
A Locker To Keep None Of Your Things In
Students at this high school are assigned lockers that are slightly smaller than the length of a pencil.
They struggle to fit anything more than a few pieces of paper and small books inside the equivalent of a Barbie locker.
This Inconvenient Door
Whoever installed this door somehow managed to do it completely backward and the handle is on the same side as the hinges.
The door does work, it just involves turning the handle and pushing on the opposite side of the door at the same time.
Advertising Is Taking Over The Ocean
Imagine paying for a beautiful beach getaway only to look out at the ocean view to see a giant floating billboard.
Advertising has finally started to capitalize on all that empty ocean space.
A Man Designed These Pills, No Doubt About It
The instructions on this medication said, "Insert vaginally without lubrication."
Vaginal pills that are shaped like hexagons with sharp points are the absolute opposite of a good idea. There are so many other pill options! Whoever designed these must hate women.
Mom Is Always Living Life On The Edge
The caption on this photo says: "This is how my wife leaves a dish after taking it out of the oven and WALKS AWAY. We have children and a dog..."
This woman is flirting with danger and doesn't seem to mind. May the odds be in her favor.
These Cheeseless McCheese Bites
McCheese bites seem like a good idea, in theory. But some customers like this one are left disappointed when they take a bite and find no cheese inside.
The cheese seems to come out in the deep fryer and never makes it out the drive-thru window with the rest of the order.
The Only Wrong Way To Eat A Burrito
Burritos come rolled and wrapped for a reason but this woman seems to have thrown the rules out the window.
She always deconstructs her burritos and pulls them apart to eat like a big messy tortilla plate. It's almost like there should be a tortilla bowl option for people like this... Oh, wait.
Lock And Key Sexy Time Items
If you're considering heading to Walmart to discreetly purchase some intimacy-related items or pleasure products, think again.
There's nothing discreet about this big locked-up cabinet that has a button and sign saying "Please Press For Associate" so that someone can come to help you select the lube you want.
Solo Potatoes For Sale
These individual potatoes for sale are wrapped in plastic.
If only potatoes came in their own natural skin of some kind so that plastic packaging wouldn't be necessary. So much for saving the planet.
This Packaging For OCD Medication
Someone shared a picture of the medication that they are prescribed to treat their OCD.
The mildly infuriating packaging design would likely bother most people who don't have obsessive-compulsive tendencies and triggers.
A Carpeted Bathroom To Haunt Your Dreams
If carpeting in the bathroom is a bad idea, this bathroom took that bad idea and put it on steroids.
The pink retro carpet climbs the wall of the bathtub and wraps around the base of the toilet, and honestly, we can smell this picture.
That's Not How Fly Swatters Are Used
Fly swatters are great for swatting flies and less great for using as a throwing device when the fly is out of reach.
Someone launched their swatter up at a sitting fly and managed to get it stuck in their skylight. Decisions were made here, just not the right ones.
This Hula-Hoop That's Now A Permanent Fixture On The House
Cable guys are kind of notorious for making a basic job turn into something unexpected.
This particular cable guy couldn't be bothered to move the single children's hula-hoop that was left in the yard and instead drilled a hole in the wall and installed the cable through the hoop.
Amazon Stikes Again With Over-Packaging
Amazon is fairly well known for their overkill packaging but this is a lot even for them.
Someone ordered 27 books from the site and was sent 27 separate packages, one for each book.
Tree Shade Is Not Good Enough, Must Be Man-Made
Someone chopped down these two trees that presumably offered quite a bit of shade, and replaced them with a man-made sun shade.
An idea like this one doesn't make sense no matter which way you look at it.
Taking An Informed Guess That Jeff Is The Worst
There's always going to be one jerk out there who thinks the world is their own personal playground, and today that jerk was Jeff.
Jeff tagged his name the same way a high school student would on a stop sign, except he defaced an insanely old rock face in a beautiful open forest.
Just because you can do certain things, doesn't mean that you should. Knitting a ramen scarf with wet noodles is one of those things.
It's hard to say why this is so unsettling, but it is for some reason.
A Urine Colored Bath Bomb
A woman with a new bath bomb was shocked to find that it dyed her bath water a bright pee yellow.
Something about this bath doesn't seem very relaxing or calming.
