Attractive People Share What They Get Away With That Regular People Can't

Being attractive has its advantages. People approach you, you're likely to get free stuff, and you can generally get away with things other people can't. Is it fair? Of course not. But hey, that's life.

-Willie- asked, What can attractive people get away with that normal people can't?

Submissions have been edited for clarity, context, and profanity.

One of the best aspects of being cute - weirdness is charming.

Being awkward. It's pretty easy for an attractive and awkward guy to come off as funny and boyishly charming rather than just plain weird.

Doesn't matter what you wear if you're cute

Bold fashion choices.

We call it "edgy."

Looking hot in an old holey t-shirt and sweatpants.???????

Nah, people come to us. Especially if we're awkward.

Talking to anyone and everyone randomly.

Dress to undress if you're going out.

Being shirtless or having few clothes.

Just tell us we're pretty.

Having bad social skills. Being socially awkward is a death sentence for ugly to average looking people, but if you're attractive and socially awkward you'll still be noticed and considered endearing.

Cute doesn't mean smart.

Getting hired for jobs they aren't qualified for.

It's true - pretty people get a lot of free stuff. It doesn't suck.

Mooching free meals and drinks.

Yeah but like it's still cute.

Being creepy.

Staring gets creepy, make a move. You're cute, after all.

Staring.

If you're unattractive and you stare at someone: "wtf what a creep."

If you're attractive and you stare at someone: "oh sh_t, he/she is looking at me. I must be looking good today. YES."

Adolescent anxiety officially triggered.

Working at Hollister.

This happens pretty frequently. Evil has an allure.

I heard there was a serial killer who got fan mail in jail because he was attractive. Of course, he didn't get away with the whole murder thing in the eyes of the law, but not everyone in society despises him solely because he was mildly attractive.

Nerds are sexy.

Liking generally nerdy things without being ridiculed for it.

Most people won't admit this but...

Making intentional physical contact (hand on the shoulder, hug, high five, etc) in conversation with communicative partners. With an attractive person, it's flattering and engaging. With an unattractive person, it feels like they're somehow crossing a line.???????

To her or him, unless you're shy and cute, in which case... lure them in.

Just go up to her and say "hi" that's what I do - Attractive person.???????

This is a weird one, but it's true.

For a man, saying hi or joking with a stranger's baby or toddler in public. If attractive and well dressed, you're the best man in the world. If you're frumpy, prepare to be called a pedo or briskly walked away from.

If you're cute, they'll do it.

Asking complete strangers to do "just do me a little favor" with full expectation that they will comply, even when the favor isn't little whatsoever.

We cuties make good salespeople.

Make you miss the signs they have an agenda. A random attractive girl once spoke me up on the bus, only to give me a pamphlet about her church. Er, no thanks.???????

How many times have you caught yourself saying, "ugh, they're so hot though?"

Being a sh_tty person.

Pretty much.

Everything.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
