The problem with the You Had One Job meme is that it is interpreted as You Had One Task. The people that make these mistakes may just have one job, but it is filled with so many tasks they can not spend too much of their time on one in particular, which leads to these mistakes. They are not always caused by inept employees but rather number-crunching managers looking to cut costs in any way they can in order to increase their own bonuses.

The first picture in the thread is a great example. A McDonald's restaurant isn't going to have an employee that just puts meat on burgers as their one job. They will also have to cook the meat, put the sandwich together, drop chicken in the fryer, watch the time on how long the patties are good (or useable), prepare for rush times at lunch and/or dinner, etc. Putting both patties together on a Big Mac is a simple mistake that is easily fixed (or staged for a photo).
