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

[rebelmouse-image 18346164 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-image 18346165 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18346166 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Bold fashion choices.

We call it "edgy."

[rebelmouse-image 18346167 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

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

[rebelmouse-image 18346169 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Talking to anyone and everyone randomly.

Dress to undress if you're going out.

[rebelmouse-image 18346170 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Being shirtless or having few clothes.

Just tell us we're pretty.

[rebelmouse-image 18346171 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-image 18346172 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Getting hired for jobs they aren't qualified for.

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

[rebelmouse-image 18346173 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Mooching free meals and drinks.

Yeah but like it's still cute.

[rebelmouse-image 18346174 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Being creepy.

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

[rebelmouse-image 18346175 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-image 18346177 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-image 18346179 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Liking generally nerdy things without being ridiculed for it.

Most people won't admit this but...

[rebelmouse-image 18346180 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-image 18346182 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

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

[rebelmouse-image 18346184 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-image 18346185 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-image 18346187 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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?"

[rebelmouse-image 18346188 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Being a sh_tty person.

Pretty much.

[rebelmouse-image 18346190 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Everything.

People Imagine How They'd React If Someone Offered Them $50K For Their Pet

I've got a decent amount of animals - some fish, turtles, dogs, etc. - but out of all of them, Optimus Prime is definitely *my* pet.

He's kind of a jerk to everyone else, but a with me he's a the biggest bestest beefaroni boy.

That is an outright lie, this dog is awfully behaved and taught himself how to open doors so he stays letting mosquitos in the house and air conditioning all of South Florida instead of just my living room. I just have a soft spot for him.

But here's the thing - soft spot or not, if someone offered me $50k for this dog, my reaction wouldn't be horror because I just love my "shmoopies" and even can't imagine. I'm not that privileged.

People Explain How They Got Their Scars

Two years ago I steamed a hole in my belly with a hot water bottle that was slightly open.

I didn't feel myself literally cooking because I have nerve damage in the area, but I still have a quarter-sized circular scar as proof!

I've got lots of scars, but my lobster steam stamp is one of my newer additions so it's kind of a fan favorite right now.

Have you ever heard of a certain job that people call a career and thought... "PEOPLE PAY YOU FOR THAT?!?!"

All hard, honest work is good work.

And then there is just trash work.

And I don't mean garbage collection, that is honest work.

I don't know how some people live with themselves.

Redditor MrTuxedo1 wanted to discuss the careers they don't believe people should chase. They asked:

"What job do you have no respect for?"

The nose is constantly being attacked by odors of the world.

Going through one day without having to hold my breath during a certain point, is a miracle.

Of course, I'm a New Yorker, so I maybe exaggerating for people in the countryside.

What's funnier is odors that are pleasant, that shouldn't be.

Have you ever looked and something and thought... "yuck."

But then you smelled it and it was like... "oh lovely,"

Redditor HappQueue wanted to know what aromas are arousing to the senses that may come as a surprise to many. They asked:

"What smells good but shouldn't?"
