People Are Sharing The Things They Wish Were Illegal And It's Relatable AF

"Hanging toilet paper so it goes under not over."

Posted on

This week, a Reddit thread asked users, "What little thing would you make illegal just because it pisses you off?" It turns out a ~lot~ of people wish their pet peeves were legitimate crimes.

Here are some things people think you should go to jail for:

1. "Designing an ad so that the 'X' to make it go away is really just a facade to make you click on the ad."

2. "Mail addressed to 'neighbor' or 'current resident.' If you don't know who lives there you shouldn't be able to spam mail me. It would save a lot of paper and gas too."

3. "Waiting until you get to the counter to start even looking at the menu to decide what food to order for yourself, your spouse, and your three children."
