Almost all of us take our security very seriously. However, some people, even though they try, they fail miserably. Whether is improperly used bike locks or protecting an ATM with duct tape, these people have made some really serious mistakes.
These 16 pictures compiled by Providr, are proof of what happens when you start inventing your own security system.
1. This is how NOT to lock your bike
I would be surprised if the bike was still there.
2. This person definitely screwed things up
3. So the question is, are we safe or are we not?
This is a ridiculous security fail.
4. So, what is this gate protecting?
Maybe it works on the honor system?
5. This way not only the thief gets a free bike but also a free pair of shoes
6. Don’t rely on duck tape to fix the ATM machine
7. People might believe that criminals are stupid
But, honestly no one is this stupid.
8. What’s the purpose of the lock if you just tell everyone the password?
9. All some criminals have to do is stop by the dollar store, buy a balloon and trick even the most advanced security systems
10. A peephole and a huge window on your door don’t go together
What are you even doing?
11. Totally believable
You almost got me there sir.
12. I never knew what an electric fence looked like
I will always make sure to stay away from wood then.
13. A heavy iron gate is usually accompanied by a fence
But you do you.
14. This picture is proof of how intelligent people have become
15. Now, this is pretty ironic
What can you do if your smoke detector spontaneously combusts ?
16. People are sometimes way too trusting
You shouldn’t be.
