27 Stories About The Dumbest Co-Workers Nobody Was Ready For

As an individual, it's absolutely normal to make mistakes. We typically experience several mistakes every day, whether it is bumping into a glass door or sending an email to the wrong client. Sometimes, however, we may make a huge mistake that surprises both ourselves and those around us.
Reddit user xk543x asked the community in a post a few days ago, "What's the dumbest mistake you've seen an incompetent co-worker make?" And the comments section has been overrun with responses. Therefore, we made the decision to gather the greatest (or worst?) ones. To be honest, I'm not sure whether to be amazed or disappointed by these people.

Later he called asking me to come back in and clean the mess.
