Even better, if the word indicates that you're the one who ultimately suffers.
Ex: I leave a suitcase in the middle of the hall, knowing someone might trip on it but ignoring that fact. Then I trip on it later on.
Or: I leave keys on a desk, though if I put them in the proper spot I won't have to look for them later. Later on I can't find them.
I'm thinking German might be a better bet for finding a single word, more specific to the outcome as well as the disregard for better judgement.
Trying to come up with a sentence. In the case of the word only describing the intentional disregard for a potential bad outcome for the sake of laziness: This morning's --- led to small disaster when, forgetting he'd left them out, he stubbed his toe on the weights.
I guess I'm trying to get something like the term schadenfreude, where it's more conceptual. So: Greg, being lazy and perhaps masochistic, had a habit of being -- / creating --- situations. (One's wherein he knows what he's doing will cause issue for himself, but goes through with it anyway and ultimately suffers.)
This is different from the previously asked question regarding idioms as I'm not looking for an idiom and am also in search of a term that indicates a sort of laziness on the part of the do-er.
