There's no doubt that our brains like order - symmetry, self-repeating patterns, perfect alignments, and intuitive placement. Seeing such satisfying pictures pleases our mind and makes it easy to understand our surroundings. On the other hand, imperfections of flawed things cause us to pause and do a double-take, annoying the hell out of the perfectionist inside us. Now, if you are an OCD-prone person, scroll down carefully unless you wish to have a masochistic session looking at these pictures.

These photos of broken patterns, imperfect symmetry, counter-intuitive placement, and construction fails are guaranteed to drive you bonkers. Undoubtedly, it is highly likely to start seeing everything crooked after looking at these not-so-funny pictures, so consider yourself warned again.

Do you have any OCD pictures that disturb the heck out of you? Share them below so that we can annoy people together!

The flipped seat looks like it's easier to get into and gives better space for people who are picky about how far they sit from a table.

That is actually normal. Usually tiles artists flip one of the tiles. The one which they signed their names ;)
