20 Hilarious Pics of People Who Had One Job and Failed

Some days treat you worse than others. In fact, some days it can really begin to feel like you’re caught up pushing an impossibly huge boulder up a hill with no end in sight. The burnout from such a state of existence can come for you quickly when things are that grim. You might even end up just leaving a blatant failed job for the rest of the world to see, because you can’t be bothered to care in the first place.
