People Break Down Which Practices Are Perfectly Legal But Actually Creepy As Hell

Laws exist to maintain order. However, they do not prevent crimes from actually happening, and before any punishments are made, the damage is already done.


But perhaps what is even more confounding is the fact there are some activities that should be considered completely illegal, yet have no laws enforcing them.
Injustices like line-cutting may seem like minor offenses, but when not regulated, inconsiderate individuals will do whatever it takes to serve their own selfish needs in the absence of consequences.

Curious to hear about some of the more creepy indiscretions people get away with, Redditor Flytechofficial asked:

"What is perfectly legal, but creepy as hell?"


These things that happen in public restrooms can be considered criminal.

Respecting Splash Zones

"Using the urinal next to me when there were plenty of other choices."

Nightmare For The Pee-Shy

"hanging out in a public bathroom timing how long people pee."

Bad Timing

"I swear to God. I did a lot of work in hospitals for a while, big f'king hospitals with tons of bathrooms all over the place. For some God damned reason, regardless of what time or bathroom I selected to take a sh*t in not 30 seconds after I sat down a janitor would knock on the door to clean the bathroom. It's not as if it was one janitor, just some random janitor would inevitably need to clean whatever bathroom I was in as soon as I got comfy. It's like I was being stalked by the janitors."

"So now I'm trying to take a sh*t knowing full well there's somebody out there actively timing how long it takes."

Looky-Loo

"I was drunk in a casino and went to use the washroom. The floors in there were a polished marble or something. Sitting on the toilet, pants down, my stall neighbour made eye contact with me on the reflective floor tile."

The following examples involving minors have no legal repercussions.

Kids For Show

"Child Beauty pageants."

Outside Watchers

"Technically, you can stand on the sidewalk and stare into someone's house through a window. It's not illegal as long as you stay off of their property, but it's really freaking creepy."

Keeping Tabs On Someone's Age

"A national newspaper having a countdown for when a child actress becomes 'legal' for sex."

"Answers to questions that will surely come. ....Yes. The Sun (UK). Emma Watson."

The Young Subjects

"When I was a child, we had a creepy horrible neighbor that would harass my family constantly. One of the things he did was stand at the corner of his yard and videotape me playing in a pool with my friends (we were around 8). My parents called the police but were told that it's legal if he's on his property."

These perfectly harmless examples can give you goosebumps.

"Hanging your doll collection from the trees in your yard using string made from human hair."

People's Taste

"I believe the act of cannibalism itself is legal so long as you didn't murder anyone to do it. If your homie gives you his arm to gnaw on, it's fair game."

The Non-Conformist

"Facing the wrong way in an elevator."

I recently treated myself by going to a movie theater after what seemed like a long hiatus for much of the year.

Streaming blockbuster movies from home, while convenient, has never made as much of an impact when compared to the moviegoing experience.

But after my recent trip to our local AMC, I'm beginning to think watching entertainment from the comfort of my quiet home is a much better option.

I forgot that a good majority of audience members are disrespectful and pretty much ignore all the rules—including no texting or talking during the movie.

The normal volume conversations and the number of lit screens from people's smartphone's in my peripheral vision throughout the movie were huge distractions.

Maybe as I'm getting older, my patience has worn thin, or I happened to have a particularly unpleasant experience. But seriously, how can anyone enjoy going to the movies when people are constantly updating their status inside a darkened auditorium?

It should illegal. Rant over.

A truly stressful job can destroy your self-esteem and confidence. It's been said that people don't necessarily leave jobs, they leave management.

Indeed, bad management can leave you feeling unmoored and unsupported.

There has been a wider conversation about hostile work environments over the last couple of years now that the COVID-19 pandemic has afforded many people the opportunity to switch careers and/or call it quits with their awful jobs.

No job is worth your mental and physical health.

People shared their stories with us after Redditor yourmaeve asked the online community,

"Redditors who changed careers from a high paying but stressful job to a lower paying but low stress job, was it worth it, why or why not?"

People Share The Most Amazing Facts They Know About The Universe

There is so much we don't know about the universe.

So much, in fact, that everything there is to learn about the universe will probably never be discovered.

Mostly because the universe is constantly growing and evolving, leaving us with new things to learn about the universe literally every day.

Constantly filling our minds with uncertainty, sometimes fear, about the otherwise vast unknown.

All of this makes all facts we've discovered about the universe all the more fascinating, whether or not we have even the slightest interest in science.

Monogamous People Explain Whether Infidelity Would Result In An Instant Breakup

Romantic relationships have evolved considerably over the course of time.

Today, more and more couples who are otherwise committed to one another, in marriage or in word, have "open" relationships, where they are permitted to see other people on the side.

Also, many people are open about being in polyamorous relationships, where they might be equally committed and loving to more than one person.

Which isn't to say, however, that monogamous relationships are a thing of the past.

As many people continue to commit, body and soul, to one person and one person only.

And should one half of that couple break that commitment, it could be the effective end of that relationship.

The mark of a good piece of fiction is when one feels as if they actually know the characters.

Be it a film, television series or novel, there are some beloved characters we wish were actually our friends in real life, or whom we feel as if we've actually known all our lives.

As a result, when one of these characters dies, we sometimes feel as if we've actually lost a loved one.

Sometimes finding ourselves in a state of literal grieving.
