The devil is in the details! Hilarious snaps reveal the disastrous consequences of ignoring common sense - from a gravity-defying drain to a VERY misleading sign

Ever find yourself stuck in a sticky situation after not fully thinking things through? 
Well here some absent-minded designers have done just that, leading to hilariously unintended results which were shared by Diply.

A very different meaning...

Best seats in the house...not
Here rows of unfortunate ticket holders are destined to miss the action due to poor design at a stadium. Let's hope those seats were free!

But can dogs read?
Depending how you read it this sign appears to be warning dogs of something rather than alerting humans to the presence of dogs
