Too much perfectionism at work will slowly kill you, but just the right amount of it is...perfect. Especially when it results in a meticulously stacked pile of carrots in a supermarket. You might be wondering if you're in an art gallery!

Bored Panda collected a bunch of satisfying examples of perfectionism at work. These people definitely deserve a raise, or your upvote! Check this post for more symmetry, or this one if your inner perfectionist is feeling naughty. Upload your pics, too!

I think it is actually cross sections of logs arranged artistically on the back panel of the truck. Still very creative and clever!

I was in Marrakesh in this is a fake. These Piles are solid and when you order some spice you will get from another source. I think when you look on the right side to the red one you will see its not real.

there's no way to scoop in to those piles without the spice cascading down on to the ground... my best guess is that it's spray glued on top to seal it to keep it fresh... the same way sandcastles are made in competitions..
