Everybody breaks laws at some point in their lifetime.
Fans of civil disobedience believe it’s OK to disobey an unjust law. And small towns like to come up with quirky laws like prohibiting people with bunions to ride unicycles on a Sunday.
(yes, I know. I said, “bunion”)
And by the way, I think this is OK, because what else are you gonna do on a Sunday? Go to Home Depot?
But then there are laws that aren’t cruel enough to ignite a mass protest, but are barely followed much less enforced. Maybe we need these rules and laws, simply to say we have them.
So here are some laws people don’t tends to follow (but maybe we should start):
Showering Before Entering A Public Pool
I’m just gonna go ahead and say it as I was a frequent public pool user growing up: We should all do this!
Most of us are quite dirty and disgusting. I think people assume you’re going into the water anyway and you’ll get clean there. And lets be honest, whats gonna happen if you DON’T abide by this “law”. Armed guards with dogs gonna come after you? Cops on motorcycles? Most likely, it’s a lifeguard who’s far more concerned with see-through swim suits than your dirt. And nobody can tell the difference once in the water unless they start sniffing around your armpits and crotch.
Luckily, most lifeguards are not that dedicated, unless your headlights are “beaming”.
You Need A License To Sell (Yep, I’m Looking At That Lemonade Stand)
We live in a world where without a piece of legal paper, everything gets shut down. This includes those lemonade stands run by six-year-old kids who charge a nickel a cup (I charged 95 cents and pretended never to have change so I just got a dollar per cup. I know, I’m Jew, so this is expected of me).
But kids are cute and rarely get slapped with a fine. The second you’re a grown up, your balls drop, and stop being cute, you get in trouble and end up in jail with Martha Stewart.
Unless you are a fetus, you’ve probably jaywalked. Either that or you probably haven’t been outside, ever. You jaywalk when you cross the street with no crosswalk, or walk when the light clearly says DON’T WALK. This crime is something millions commit every second, which would account for officers almost never busting people for it unless it causes a real hassle or the cop feels like being a dick that day. Yes, I must caution that Jaywalking can be very dangerous.
No Cell Phone Use In The Movie Theater
There once was a time when having a cell phone meant you were either rich or important. Now it just means that you are trying to look rich or important. No one can see you in there anyhow!
What kid didn’t have a “sip” of wine at dinner?
Any laws you’d like to add? Any laws that AREN’T really laws but should be?
