"Bad at being bad.."

I used to work in a department where we subscribed to the theory of "Inverse Incompetency".

Where a person incorrectly arrives as some belief/concept, set out to achieve a result but executes the plan so poorly that some opposite and totally correct result is achieved.

Usually referenced when explaining how upper management survived some adventure.

But.... even applied to me on occasion.
