25+ People Who Take Instructions Too Literally


There’s a good chance that some of you reading this post served in one of the conflicts of the last 15 years. Those of you who have, and even those of you who haven’t, what does it tell you that both the claymore mine, and the M-72 LAW, need to have “this way towards enemy” (or similar) written on the device? Clearly, if you need to be told to heat your MRE with “A rock or something,” it means that most people have a hard time interpreting even the simplest of instructions.

Bored Panda has compiled this list of instruction-fails to pay tribute to those who just didn’t understand, and who followed instructions all too literally. Which one do you find the most absurd? Vote on your favorite, or if you have a photo of someone that took a set of instructions too far, submit it below!
