People Share What They Wish Would Become Illegal

We can all generally agree laws are there to protect us. After all, no one would enjoy being murdered, having their stuff stolen out of their car, or getting smacked around like professional wrestlers. Not all laws are great, though, and not everything is outlawed that should be. That's right. We're calling you out, people that won't get off their phone when ordering food in line.


Reddit user, u/JasonBeKillin, wanted your opinion on what should be against the law when they asked:

what's something you wish was illegal?

Robo-calling

Opened comments to type exactly that answer. So infuriating.

Apparently the FBI and IRS are very interested in speaking with me...from their Nigerian office.

Wasting All That Digital Ink

All the spam mail in my mail box. I don't like that some of the most import documents in my life come via usps and in that same box is 5 different pieces of mail that are spam and 15 that are ads for sh-t I'd never buy.

Salary employment where they 'expect' you to work an extra 5 to 20 hours a week every week.

"70% Off...$500..."

You know those ads on the internet that say there's a store clearance sale and everything is 70% off but when you follow the link the shirts are like $60,it's like "You mean to tell me the regular price for this shirt is $200?!"

That.

MLM businesses

Pyramid and Ponzi schemes are illegal, but MLMs have managed to slip through a loophole even though they're basically the same thing

We Have No Idea How To Handle It

Those mycleanpc.com scams.

It doesn't do anything to your computer at all but slow it down and do a fake scan. How can blatantly lying about your product be legal to advertise?

Lots of people confuse "illegal" with "can be stopped by current law enforcement techniques."

"You're Full-Time At 32 Hours A Week"

Cutting employee hours to avoid giving full-time benefits/pay.

I'm so happy to know I'm not the only one who thought "Toddlers in Tiaras" was the most disturbing thing to ever be on television.

Ugh...The Worst

Bright a-- blue headlights, my night vision isn't great to begin with but once I have one of those

People Confess What Genuinely Disgusts Them

No two people react the same way to a pungent odor, gratuitous violence in film and television, or unruly, off-putting behavior.

As some people have a fairly high tolerance for gore, aren't bothered by taste and smell, and are so patient that they simply aren't bothered by anyone.

Although, everyone has their limits.

And despite what they might say, there are very few people who don't have one thing which even the very thought of will make them gag, just a little bit.

It's rare for a day to go by where women don't, quite understandably, complain about the annoying, even misogynistic behavior of men.

Addiction to video games, poor hygiene, too much excitement over a football or basketball game, bad table manners.

The list goes on and on.

But men don't only annoy women with their behavior.

Indeed, plenty of other men get equally annoyed or revolted by certain stereotypically "male" behavior, and wish it would come to an end.

Poor People Share The Most Out Of Touch Advice They've Received From A Rich Person

Successful people who come from humble beginnings usually don't forget where they came from.

But some of those who were already born into privilege and wealth may claim to be compassionate towards people who are financially disadvantaged.

But unless they've lived the experience as someone from the lower class or have a deep understanding of what life is like on the other side, the wealthy will never understand what it's like to be poor.

People Explain Which Teen Movies Made Them Think 'The Older I Get, The More I Agree With The Adult'

There's a fairly common formula in movies geared toward a teenage audience.

A group of teenagers face one central conflict, to varying degrees of importance and severity, but manage to solve it in a surprisingly short manner of time.

The heroes of these films are usually a hodgepodge of traditional high school archetypes (star athlete, math nerd, girl whose beauty is disguised by a pair of glasses), all of whom the intended audience can completely relate to and root for.

And then we have the adult characters, who are often buffoonish stereotypes, or the outright villain, whose sole mission is to ensure the protagonist will not achieve their ultimate goal.

As teenagers, we often find ourselves ready to boo these grown-ups from the minute they appear on the screen.

But when we revisit these movies as adults, we find ourselves noticing that their behavior isn't quite as bad as we remembered.

Or, more shockingly, we actually find ourselves rooting for them!
