16 People Who Work Smart And Not Hard

Diply 2 Mar 2018

Life is hard. We all do our best to pretend that we're enjoying it, but most of the time we're all just running around, totally stressed out, caffeine-drunk, and pitifully attempting to cross things off our to-do lists.

My list contains the bare minimum, like eating and feeding my cat, and I still find myself struggling to achieve both at the end of the day.

You know what feels good, though? Those "Ah-ha!" moments where your brain decides to bring its A game and you come up with the perfect solution to a problem you're trying to tackle. Here are some folks who are definitely riding that high.

1. This is like riding shotgun when you're carpooling.

Sure, you could've just driven your own car, but why make two trips? It saves on gas, it's better for the environment, and you don't have to do a single thing. Definitely smart.

2. Boxes were checked.

No one said they had to be filled with confetti and tied with a ribbon. He may have done the bare minimum, but this would probably catch my attention over the lame show posters I see most of the time.

3. You're getting into bed anyway...


That's how everyone jumps into bed after a long day, right? No, just me? Oh well, I'll be happy to use my new found skills to put on a fitted sheet instead of struggling with the edges like you plebs. Two birds, one stone.

4. Perfect for people who don't have time to waste pretending they're at a party to socialize.

Let your cup do the talking! I could've used a cup to talk for me on several occasions in the past, considering how white-girl wasted I get. Maybe then I would've actually met someone instead of throwing up on their shoes for once.

5. After a long day at work, it's a long night of parenting.

I don't think his daughter is too upset by this lifehack. She's getting to swing, dad is getting to relax and have a beer after work. Everybody wins!

6. "Mind if I hitch a ride? You're going that way anyway."

Reddit | moonshwang

Everybody knows that hitchhiking is dangerous! What if that garbage bin was filled with anthrax? Or had an axe-wielding psychotic clown/scarecrow hybrid tucked inside? Or even worse, a raccoon? This is just reckless.

7. Bill Gates once said he would only hire lazy people to do difficult jobs.

His logic was that a lazy person would always find the easiest way to get it done. If that's the case, then he should probably look up this dude because I've never seen an easier solution to a problem in my life.

8. If I tried this, my fingertips would have more holes in them than plot of The Room.

It seems like a good strategy because no one could possibly hit snooze more than once or twice after hitting those spikes, right? Wrong. I just don't think I'm capable of unlearning that feature.

9. How to keep up with trends on a budget.

Just take every single trend you can think of and put them on one shirt. You just gotta make sure they're just words and not images so people know it's ironic.

10. I'm pretty sure someone once said that if there isn't a door, to kick in a window.

Instagram | @kalesalad

That person might have been me, and I don't know if I've ever actually said that before right now, but I digress.

If there isn't contemporary art in your workspace, just label some trash you don't care about to breathe new life into it. It's about perspective.

11. I wouldn't have judged them at all.

Instagram | @kalesalad

I've been kicked out of, like, six different clubs for taking my top off for free. If you think I wouldn't do it for a free puppy, then you're out of your goddamn mind. Bonus points for dat hustle tho!

12. Part of working smart is being aware of what could happen.

If you've experienced something enough times, then preparation is your best friend. Clearly, Dee has lost this fellow a time or two before, but their T-shirt idea has saved the day.

13. Well, he had to feed them anyway.

amgram | @kalesalad

A few extra steps and he's literally turned himself into a meme with his thoughtfulness. Being creative can really work wonders, so don't be afraid to think outside the box!

14. Any girl will tell you makeup brushes ain't cheap.

Have you been into a Sephora in the last century? Sure, you could go buy a new brush, or you could just repurpose one of the ones you're not using like this. Crisis averted!

15. I'm sensing some jealousy.

I think maybe momma is a bit salty she didn't think of this first and spent all that time with a baby strapped to her chest. No doubt that dads are a creative bunch!

16. If this is the standard that college admissions are holding nowadays, I'm a bit afraid for our future.

Imgur | OctopussSevenTwo

The fact that someone this ridiculous was able to get into college is definitely worrisome. Hopefully, he didn't burn the campus down!
