Let's be real- have any of you ACTUALLY read the terms and conditions that come with a contract? It's pretty important to read before you sign, but it's just like, a lot of words. You know what I mean.

But this can come back and bite you in the butt, and that's when you realize exactly what you've agreed to. Here are a few stories of sneaky terms and conditions that went unnoticed.

u/sevencargarage asked: What are some sneaky "terms and conditions" that people commonly unknowing accept?



So wholesome.

In Germany we have a large online shop that sells mostly fandom stuff (for Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, etc). In their Terms and Conditions you agree to be a good person, hold the door open for others, etc.

That's evil. I am not holding door for anybody.

Good to know.

Your gps shuts down at speeds above 500km (or something similar).

This way it can't be used to guide a missile/nuke.

Is that how it works?

"Terms and conditions may change without notice to you"

I used to make and sell beats online, I saw that on a few websites.

This is a very lawyer way of saying "I'll repost your meme".

That doesn't seem fair.

Cemeteries can have sneaky "terms and conditions."

One cemetery's fine print tells plot-holders that they and their descendants can be charged a "special assessment" for landscaping and paving/drainage repairs required by the cemetery.

This special assessment possibility remains an obligation for plot-holders until all graves in individual plots have been used.

That's one reason to not have kids.

I remember agreeing to one where the person who made the terms and conditions would be betrothed to my second daughter. Luckily I have no children lmao.

Be a shame if you had only boys.

That doesn't seem fair.

Many T&Cs have a clause that says they're allowed to change it without notice and you'll still be bound by any future versions of those T&Cs. Normally followed by an acknowledgement that we'll try and tell you if we're changing it but at the end of the day it's your responsibility to check back.

But if a tyrant CEO came to power in almost any company you could already have signed to... literally anything.

Well that's just great.

That you don't actually own the operating system in your iPhone or any other apple product, you are leasing it and it's contents from Apple. In other words, Apple can legally turn your phone into a paperweight if they choose to do so and you can't so a thing about it.

This is also true for the computers that run a large portion of cars and a whole slew of other products.

That could be a big problem.

That a landlord's "emergency" to enter a premise can be pretty loosely defined and should be EXTREMELY defined before lease is signed otherwise your house reeks of pot and your landlord thinks there's a fire.

Smart.

Bethesda has the right to infect your computer with a virus if you hack any of their games.

Fair enough.

People Confess The Food They Can't Buy Because They'll Eat The Whole Thing In One Sitting

I cannot be trusted with chocolate marshmallow cookies.

I don't even like marshmallows, but something happens in my brain when I bite into it and I no longer have an ability to say no. It doesn't even matter what brand - could be Mallomars, or pinwheels, or whatever your local store brand is.

Doesn't matter, just put it in the freezer and walk away. It's best you forget about it, because you'll never see the box again.

People Confess Which Rules Have Been Created Because Of Their Actions

We all did wild things when we were young. Many of us still do wild things now.

Some of these actions were against the rules. Other actions weren't exactly banned but were frowned upon. And some actions were so crazy, no one thought about having a rule against them at first.

Sometimes, we do something so out of the ordinary that a rule is created so it won't happen again. These are often the best stories.

It's another ordinary day in America.

So of course that means we've already had a mass shooting or two before brunch.

So let's discuss the aftermath.
