“Standards in public life have decayed over time... Incompetence is the norm.”
― Jed Mercurio
While these characters are great, they tend to screw up their plans and they tend to fail at doing something right from time to time (comedically or not; either due to bad luck, laziness, stupidity, clumsiness, shortcomings, arrogance, misunderstandings, short-sightedness, etc), all to the point that it's incredible when they do something right outside of being inefficient or pathetic, this sometimes makes them be viewed as sympathetic because of this being one of their traits.
Their moments of being incompetent often lead to them being poked fun at by others because this is how they're often depicted as fallible people (sometimes their incompetence makes them tragic, or at best, humanizingly easy to root for).
At least their incompetence has a redeeming aspect to themselves by holding sympathetic and likable qualities (no matter how minimal), unlike these pitiful failures.
