Lazy People Who Said “Not My Job” And Left A Mess For Someone Else (30+ Pics)

“Not my job” is what all of the following people must have been thinking when they decided to give up.

Each photo on this list tells a story. Sadly, it’s a short story. It goes like this: there was something that needed to be done, a person stepped up to the plate, and did nothing.

Fortunately, for all of us, the people who called out these lazy individuals took a photo so we could all be nonplussed about another person’s sheer uselessness. The Reddit devoted to these photos is r/NotMyJob.

Personally, I think it’s hilarious when people don’t try. That is, I think it’s fun to see when the misfortune falls on someone else. When, however, the FedEx guy barely tries to knock on my door and then leaves a note saying I wasn’t home when they tried to deliver my newest collectible katana, then I get mad. The people who took these photos must have been so shocked, it turned funny. We thank them for their service.
