15+ Clever People Who Beat The System

Diply 20 Jul 2018

Let's talk about "the system" for a second, shall we? What is it? Where did it come from? Who's responsible for this?

Well, I don't know the answer to any of those questions, but I do know that if you say "the system" in a sentence, pretty much everybody knows what you're talking about, so let's not get into semantics.

The system sucks, everybody hates it, and these people are the heroes we need. How's that?

1. This restaurant that doesn't have time for your silly rules.

Reddit | Lawful_Lazy

Apparently, this bar also owns the attached restaurant next door, but that doesn't fly with a bylaw that requires food to be served. At least if someone buys it, they're making a good chunk of change!

2. These friends who can't be bothered to pay for dessert.

I mean, sure, the ring probably cost more than the dessert did, but they can do this repeatedly at every restaurant in the city. One ring. Many desserts. A lifetime of happiness.

3. This pup that cares not for your rules.

Reddit | [deleted]

And it shouldn't, either. Look at its little face! I dare you to try to look into those puppy dog eyes and say that it's not welcome somewhere. I don't trust anyone that could pull it off.

4. This guy who's trickery just somehow made him more attractive.

Okay, maybe not actually, but I'm sure that those inflated numbers have convinced a person or two that they need to get their eyes checked. I wonder what the numbers would look like if he really asked that question.

5. This kid who just wants some snacks with his YouTube.

Don't we all? That is literally me 90% of the time when I'm at home. I'm glad he was able to pull it off because speaking from experience, it's a pretty legit way to live your life.

6. This person who refused to fall prey to Lego.

Raise your hand if you've been personally victimized by a rogue Lego. *raises hand* Just as I thought. This man is the hero we need.

7. This burrito-loving vodka drinker who's just not down with buying venue drinks.

Twitter | @jodiekinzzz

Can you blame her? They're horribly expensive, and all of those plastic cups are terrible for the environment. This is revolutionary.

8. This lonely guy who needs a hug, but will settle for a high five.

As an added bonus, you get to eat the delicious hand-shaped toast when you're done validating yourself, too. Snacks and validation are the way to my heart.

9. This dude who earned the extra percentage for how clever this strategy is.

Twitter | @WORLDSTAR

This is textbook reverse psychology. Even if it went poorly, his grade still would've been decent, so I'd say it was worth the risk.

10. This gift giver who has had enough with the indifference.

Me.me | Me.me

It's about time someone stood up to this kinda silliness. It's as bad as asking someone what they want for dinner and getting hit with "I don't care."

11. This lazy dude who clearly doesn't own a dishwasher.

Reddit | Iowa_Couscous

Somebody should really let him know that paper plates exist. I bet his whole world would be flipped upside down.

12. This kid who has pretty much won school.

Daily Edge | Daily Edge

Which is pretty impressive considering I didn't even know you could do that. I like how he was already right, but he just wanted to be double sure.

13. This vendor who has opinions on the festival rules.

Reddit | Mic_Harmony

No one should be able to regulate water, that's absurd. Luckily, this place has figured out how to circumvent that.

14. This kid who just wanted to have some friends over.

Twitter | @KevinMieles11

Surely this dad knew that something was gonna go down while he was away, but I don't know if he expected his kid to come up with something so clever.

15. This guy who just wants to party.

Reddit | Mcmevin

Parties are dope, who doesn't wanna party? Why let a silly little thing like a formal invite get in your way? Honestly, I can't believe that worked.

16. This student who's passing his test on a technicality.

Me.me | Me.me

I hope it was a science test and he got bonus points for using a Möbius strip to take notes on because this is brilliant.

17. The marketing team who decided that honesty was probably the best policy.

The Chive | The Chive

Why pretend that it's butter when all we care about is the taste (and how cheap it is)?

18. These surfer bois. Who says dogs can't surf?


They can do whatever they put their minds to, OK? Frankly, these sea hounds put my one attempt to surf to shame. (It didn't go well.)

19. This lifehacker...maybe.

Reddit | TheAnomaly123

I mean, it's 2018 — I can buy my own snacks. But if I'm going to see Shakespeare in Love at the classic movie marathon, you'd best believe this is my outfit.

20. This lonely genius. Who says you need to be dating to be totally sappy?

Reddit | magutek

The Snapchat game on this dude is only going to get better once he starts shaving half his face.

21. This beachgoer who wants to stay as emo as possible.

Reddit | GuyFromVault

Probably got depressed after seeing some surfing dogs and realized she'd never be that cool. I know that feeling, fam.

22. This kid and his mannequin doppelgänger. 

Reddit | aseht_

I used to break my brain as a kid trying to figure out ways to ditch my parents and live in the toy department at Walmart.

23. Turtles: I mean, they really got it all figured out, and I didn't realize it until today.

Reddit | rightcoastguy

No rent and you sleep wherever you want. Can I just go ahead and get reincarnated already?

24. This dude is an inspiration for those of us who don't like being told when to smile.


Yo, if you want me to smile, bring me some pizza. Works every time.
