Things That Only Losers Brag About

You don't want to be that "loser" who's still bragging about how great they were on the high school football team. Or really what it gets down to, is just bragging in general. Let those achievements speak for themselves. That search for approval is a lost cause. When it really gets down to it, nobody really cares.

Things People Wrongfully Think Are Scams

Someone on AskReddit asked for people to share things they're aware of that people wrongfully think are scams, but actually are nothing of the sort.

The paranoid suspicions are fair in a world that can feel like it's just trying to pull one over on you, too often.

Police Officers Share Laws They Feel Uncomfortable Enforcing

Someone on AskReddit asked for police officers to share the laws they feel uncomfortable about enforcing, because they don't necessarily agree with them. We've got responses like, how they don't particularly want to bust people out having a good time on the river, as long as they're not being total inconsiderate animals. As well as, angelic cops who literally carry nickels on them to feed the meters to avoid writing tickets. Wherever that is happening sounds like a hell of a place.
