FML's Fine Examples of A-Hole Design!

The world around us is failing, but thankfully people are making it worse by designing everyday annoyances to make the rest of us miserable.

Designers aren't mere mortals

If you've been into the outside world, ordered something online, bought something in a box or even had an ice cream from a shady looking van, you may have encountered what is known as Asshole Design. An entire subReddit is dedicated to posting these nuggets (and yes, I mean that in the piece of corn in the turd sense), and some of them are really aggravating and relatable.

Here's a collection of some of the worst offender. Just looking at them makes my skin want to crawl over there and beat them into the trash.

1 - A classic: You think you're buying a whole bottle, but it's an illusion.

 

 

2 - The bastard "fake fine" power move. Assholerly of the highest caliber.

 

 

3 - The "fake hair on the screen to make you swipe up" power move.

 

 

4 - Hotels that make you pay when you dare to MOVE THE SNICKERS.

 

 

5 - I have to CALL SOMEONE? Fuck no. No way. Oh God, why?

 

 

6 - Never buying one of these fuckers again, I guess.

 

 

7 - That sticky note set with the gold border looks cool, I'll order that. Hey look, it's… Oh.

 

 

8 - Maybe I can do loads of jewelry with this kit I ordered too… Oh.

 

 

9 - Where's the rest of my ice cream?

 

 

10 - This speaker never tweets.

 

 

11 - Handegg time.

 

 

12 - "Yeah, OK Dave, it looks cool, but someone's bound to notice, don't you think?"

 

 

13 - Fuck off! Urgent!

 

 

14 - This is going to end well.

 

 

15 - Make your mind up, dammit.

 


16 - One cube short of a square. Assholes.

 

 

17 - A quick demonstration of the waste that surrounds us.

That's it for now!

FML hopes you enjoyed this compilation of complete asshole designs and schemes. Tell us all about your stories involving this sort of crap, we'd love to hear stories about stuff like this. I once had a very convincing advertisement stuck to my car that looked like a parking ticket, like the first example, and it was REALLY infuriating. I can't remember what they were selling but I hope they got chlamydia for breakfast. Hey-ho.

See you all very soon, be excellent to each other.

The 100% Juice one means that the 27% of juice is made with 100% real juice, not that the entire thing is 100% Juice. It's how they get ya! They so it with chicken too! "Made with 100% Chicken Breast!" Yeah, so a part of the Chicken is Chicken Breast, and that small part is 100% chicken breast. Wording makes it so they're not sued!
