Here’s Your Guilt Trip — Laws We All Break
I like to consider myself a good, decent, average, law-abiding citizen, but there are so many little crimes that we commit everyday. According to an article at Female First, we've all got crimes to answer for even if we think we are law-abiding. Now, I'll admit that, in going over the list, it wasn't exactly a crime of the century collection. I'll also bet that you have the same experience as I did and admit to yourself each one of these you've committed.
Now, technically, I don't think some of the "crimes" they listed we more along the lines of being just plain rude. I don't think you're going to beat yourself up about any of the crimes on this list.
1. Returning clothes you've worn - You only needed that outfit for one night, so you bought it, wore it and took it back. Sounds a lot like a Seinfeld routine. Didn't Elaine try that in an episode?
2. Fake sick days. Not exactly a crime and I'd be willing to bet we've all done it at one time or another. I guess you could look at it as as form of stealing. .
3. Illegal Downloads - This is so rampant, I'd be amazed to come across someone who has never done it. I doubt the music police are going to come to your house and haul you away for downloading that rare Partridge Family cut, but people do get caught.
4. Sneaking your own snacks and food into a movie - One of my exes was really great at the old movie/snack food dodge. She could sneak just about anything from candy to Thanksgiving dinner into a theater.
5. Expired registration or Inspection Sticker. Well, if I had a nickel for every time I've done that, I could retire. Who notices their inspection sticker or registration. I have a hard enough time remembering to renew my plates.
Those are just a few the minor laws we break on an almost daily basis. The are several more and you can read them from the original article in Female First
