27 People Who Followed Instructions A Little TOO Literally

List RulesVote up those who took the same directions to a completely different destination.

Some people tend to take things a little too literally, and literally following directions often leads to places the instructors never anticipated. Granted, many of the people in these scenarios knew exactly what they were doing, but it doesn't make these follow instructions memes any less hysterical. Whether it's literally following the instructions of cake decoration or taking literal directions from funny signs, people saw an opportunity, took it, and channeled it through their own sense of direction. In a world dominated by people who have a hard time comprehending even the simplest instructions, it's good to know there are still humans who know not only how play by the rules, but bend them.
