13 Things Even You Would Never Gamble On

The thrill of taking a chance may be fun for some things, but, for others, a "hard pass" is a better choice. If you or someone you love is dealing with a gambling addiction, there is help.

1. Assuming any public bathroom has soap.

2. Clicking on an online ad that says "DOCTORS HATE HER FOR HAVING THE ONE SECRET TO PERFECT SKIN."

3. Loaning money to that one friend who hasn't paid you back for years.

4. An oatmeal chocolate chip cookie NOT secretly being an oatmeal raisin cookie.

5. That your child doesn't have to go potty before taking a long trip in the car.

6. Gas station sushi.

7. Using the bathroom with the broken lock.

8. Swiping right on someone with multiple people in their main profile picture.

9. Letting someone search something on your laptop without clearing your search history first.

10. Restaurants that have glaring typos in their menus.

11. Getting on the one empty subway car during rush hour.

12. Your friend not saying something savage after they say, "I'm not trying to be mean, but..."

13. Assuming your roommate will remember it's their turn to buy toilet paper when you're out.
