Cheaters never prosper. That's a lie! Cheaters often win and often walk away with no remorse and sometimes that's ok. Life is one long, arduous game of survival. And more often than not it's imperative to find your way around by maybe cutting an edge out for yourself. When you know a few things about the outcome prior to the finish you can handle the terrain with a touch more ease. And I'm not ashamed to championing that!

Redditor u/SunZuu wanted everyone to fess up and admit to a thing or three by asking... What are some cheat codes you've found in the game of life?

When my daughter was little and still believed band-aids cured things, one time she had a belly ache so I put one on her belly and it made her feel better. Power of placebos! tres_chill

I think this advertiser was working on the assumption that most of his consumers did not know what placebo meant. Of course, either way it could still work.

when my wife was raising her kids on her own her little boy was having nightmares about a monster. She asked him which of his stuffed toys was the strongest and the toughest. He indicated his stuffed dog. She then told him to put the dog on the edge of the bed and that he would protect him from the monsters. It worked like a charm. At this point I realized that some magic is real. Cheeseand0nions

Run don't walk! 

When I was in my old 500+ person building, I kept a stack of papers on my desk. When I was bored, or got tired of sitting down, I'd get up, grab my stack of papers and walk around. I called them my "walking papers" and did this for months. Got a lot of head nods and not one question the entire time. People always assumed I was on an important mission, but nope. Not in the least.

PS: worked on the executive floor / wing, too. 37214

When you go on a job interview, the last thing you probably never think about is asking a question.

I have a few wealthy friends and I've seen a thing or two that has made my eyes pop out of my head. Let's just say that the priorities of a wealthy person and a dude who has never broken six figures are entirely different. But that doesn't compare to working for the fabulously rich. A friend of mine was a nanny for a super rich family for several years and described the lavish trips she took with them (and how picky and out of touch they were, too).

People told us their own stories after Redditor NeighborhoodTrolley asked the online community,

"People who cater to the super rich: What things have you seen?"

Oh the matters of the heart are just never going to be easy. Love seems to be a never ending mess. I've dated a lot and can attest that the percentage of bad to good is 70/30. And that may be generous math.

I've heard about people fighting on dates, setting fire to the restaurant, discovering hidden identities and dramas I thought only ever occurred on daytime television.

I use to believe the biggest fear about dating was that the other person may turn out to be a serial killer, but they at least tend to show you a respectable time before they strike.

Oof. Let's see who has been left scarred by the hunt.

Redditor u/givemeyourfreefood wanted everyone to share the stories that almost made them re-think searching for love, by asking:

What's the worst date you ever had?
