    Ever watch episodes of “Home Improvement?” Weren’t you glad there was no way you’d run into a builder that prone to making a mess of things? Well, you can suck that sigh of relief right back in…

    1. When they‘re efficient to a fault

    It’s not always best to bring all the groceries inside with one trip.

    2. When “safety first” is an afterthought

    “Don’t worry. It’s just a short trip down the interstate.”

    3. Or when “safety last” is their motto

    Maybe a trampoline would’ve been better.

    4. When they can’t handy-man their way out of a wet paper bag

    Dude, it’s a tape measure, not a cobra!

    5. When they arrive at the jobsite with an empty truck bed

    “I swear, it was there before I left!”

    6. If you see gravity outsmarting them.

    Whatever you do, don’t let him push a stroller!

    10. If you see them eyeballing everything instead of using a tape measure…

    Careful. The first step out is a doozy.

    11. …especially when it concerns drainage

    Please tell me this guy didn’t install the toilet, too.

    12. When they take security a little too far…

    “That’s right! No thieves gonna be pickin’ this lock!”

    Via ebaumsworld

    13. …or when they don’t take privacy far enough…

    Ever been so drunk you had double vision? Problem solved!

    14. …or when they’re gender confused

    Enter at your own risk.

    15. Srsly?

    Modesty? What modesty?
