12+ People Who Made Their Own Rules

In life, there is always a proper way to do something, and then there is an easy way to do something. And, if you're anything like me, then the best way to do something is always the easy way! I mean, all of the furniture in my house may be a terribly-assembled deathtrap, but I assembled it all in half the predicted time so that's something!

Whether you're someone who likes to follow the rules or someone to whom the rules are something to be promptly ignored, here is something I think you will enjoy ⏤ 12+ people who didn't follow the instructions!

"Grandma wanted some 'creative' grad photos of my friend since we’re graduating at the same time. This was her least favorite."

Reddit | Toll_House69

I wish I had done something like this for my graduation photos. This is a great idea, and I really can't see why their grandmother would be displeased with it!

"I thought that was always the rule."

Reddit | Cky9250

Good old Rondal McDondal, he's always looking out for the kids, isn't he?!

"This rules out most people."

Reddit | sinz84

I wonder who the f*ckwit was who injured themselves so badly that they made it necessary for this sign to actually be put up.

"I used the wrong lens when taking a pic of my doggo."

Reddit | Tankbot001

Nope, I think you'll find that this is the exact sort of lens that you should have used! Tell me that this shot isn't perfect?!

"Guess who set the alarm off at the movie theatre today. Men's room was around the corner and down a hall."

Reddit | Gaijinloco

Look, the signs might be a bit similar, but what bathroom have you ever been in that required you to push open a bar like that?

"Rules Are Rules."

Reddit | sallysaysyes

Based on most of the kids that you see running around shops in our neighborhood, people's dogs would actually be better behaved if they were allowed inside!

"Someone's about to get alcohol poisoning."

Reddit | minjenzo

Look, regardless of who you are, you should be able to follow the basic rules of beer pong! That elbow is miles too high up the table.

"I've never met Lauren but I already know I don't like her."

Reddit | Norskiing

Laura, wherever you are, I hope you are happy with what you have done here. You have birthed a true abomination.

"Instructions were unclear..."

Reddit | wujack

Either this person gets incredibly hot feet and wants to cool them on the fans, or they are just completely baffled by the concept of chairs.

"My cat just farted loudly for the first time ever in front of me. After laughing uproariously for 10 seconds, I snapped a photo of his still confused face."

Reddit | girouxfilms

Cats simply do not like abiding by society's rules about not farting on other people. However, more than that, they do not like being laughed at!

"I always follow the rules."

Reddit | Flightorfighter

I guess that this person is actually following the instructions a little too rigidly!

"I'm just gonna let the fire consume me."

Reddit | veethis

Thankfully, someone explained that this contraption doesn't actually strap you to the fire alarm, but just gives you a massive bracelet. Still, pretty unsettling though.

"That one friend who blatantly disregards the rules of shotgun."

Reddit | Linguini_Fettuccine

There are so many rules when it comes to claiming shotgun that sometimes it's just easier to be petty and sit in the front regardless of whoever is already sitting there.

"Don't Go Whoring!"

Reddit | code0011

Look, it might be a bit of a weird note, but I guess that, at its core, not taking drugs or going whoring is a fairly sound message?

"CPR Instructions next to the hotel pool. They haven't the slightest clue..."

Reddit | daveylovesMN

My favorite panel is the first one: "Blame someone!" Every time I find myself in an unsettling situation, I try to blame someone else for it, regardless of what is happening.

Door Instructions...

Reddit | scaramangaf

How many people do you think have fallen for this and sworn loudly? I know that if I fell for this then the air would be blue around me.

"Strawberry picking. You will notice that one of my kids follows the rules, the other, is just like his father."

Reddit | Matt666666

Which one of these kids do you resonate with more? I was definitely more like the kid in the background when I was growing up!

First And Foremost!

Reddit | quitefunny

I bloody love goats, so I can understand why people would want to pick up the goats. However, goats are jittery things. Leave them on the ground, people!

"Even the sign has to follow the rules."

Reddit | XavierScorpionIkari

I guess that this sign just got tired of constantly breaking the one rule that it was supposed to enforce, and just gave in to its own proclamation.

"Someone wrote 'Welcome to Cleveland' [on a] Milwaukee rooftop near the airport so incoming planes would be able to read it and confuse passengers."

Reddit | Lionel_Hutzz

I love this idea. However, I dread to think what it would be like as a first-time pilot looking out of the window and seeing this and thinking that you had messed up spectacularly on your first flight.

I Don't Like The Taste Of Diesel...

Reddit | swetcher

"Go on...just try it."

"But...but, I don't want to!"

"It's Seattle's best, just give it a go..."

"They clearly said DO NOT feed after midnight, Karen."

Reddit | calcobrena

I was always terrified of the Gremlins movies as a kid. I also cannot believe that they haven't tried to reboot Gremlins yet.

"In 3 years of doing pizza delivery, this is by far the funniest delivery instruction line I've ever seen."

Reddit | evil_erin

"Here... Is... Your... Pizza... Sir."

"... What?"

Headrests Are Difficult

Reddit | bhuvanbam

I mean, sure, it might not be the correct way to use a headrest, but now it is a face-rest!

Chug It!

Reddit | sometimesavowel

I was never good at chugging drinks. I'd rather just drink at my own pace and get hammered more slowly and steadily.

Sliding Door Company

Reddit | jasontaken

This is not exactly a great advert for their own product, is it? Unless they are just confident that you will hate the experience of opening the door so much that you will want to switch to sliding doors yourself.

"Instructions unclear, cat stuck on door."

Reddit | firewires

There is essentially only one important step to this whole project, and that is making sure you are using the right end of the door. They managed to mess up this one simple step.

"When you are so hungry you buy food at two places at the same time."

Reddit | Adrazienn

Listen, some cravings are just too powerful. If you've got many going on, don't even bother trying to pick, just go for all of them!

"Today I babysat my son for the first time while his mother was out."

Reddit | AFistFulOfRupees

As funny as this is, is it really considered babysitting when it's your baby? I think that's just parenting.

"My wife said I could decorate the guest bathroom as my own. Multiple screams have ensued."

Reddit | ChefCthulhu

He really went all out - even the towel is bloodstained! If you're gonna go with this bathroom theme, might as well go full tilt, right?

"My 84-year-old grandmother apologized for having to wear her nightgown in front of us. I said it was no problem and that it actually looked very comfortable, so she immediately offered one to me."

Reddit | JarodAllonge

Man, those robes must be super comfy. He looks so excited! Sad that she left him sockless though. His feet must be ice cold.

"At my local nursery."

Reddit | m4rceline

For someone named baby, he acts more like a beast. Then again, I don't know who sees a macaw and feels the instinct to try and grab them.

"This morning the two cooling towers of our nearby nuclear power plant were detonated by the operator. The night before Greenpeace had their share of fun with a laser."

Reddit | marvellectric

I didn't even know this kind of thing was possible, but I'm super happy that this is how I found out.

Bros Before...Girls.

Reddit | PoonSwoggle

Look at that man's expression. He feels more for this raccoon than he could ever feel for a woman, and I think that's just beautiful.

"Forgot I had a dentist appointment and didn't have time to change. They think I am crazy in the waiting room."

Reddit | Possibly_

I love this post because the user did not explain what he was doing in this outfit, meaning we're all just as confused as the employees at that dentist's office.

"My friend’s kid asked if he could use 'Mommy’s mug' this morning."

Reddit | savealltheelephants

The way his face is hidden, he looks pretty hardened. He had a wild youth, full of Nutella and apple juice addictions.

"Found this today. Someone must have read a lot of Calvin and Hobbes."

Reddit | TheWiseGazer

Now, I've never read Calvin and Hobbes, so to me this looks like someone had a rough fall from a large height, or that snowman has been there a looong time.

"We've seen the squirrel feeder table, but what about a chicknic table?"

Reddit | TNTinRoundRock

While I love this, a bit of the charm is gone because the squirrels could sit at the tables. I'm gonna need chickens to develop some more dynamic joints, fast.

"Favorite new thing: Scratching haunting things into bananas at the market so when people take them home hours later and the words appear they think a ghost knows their secrets."

Reddit | seabassseabreeze

Do you think someone at the market was watching them scribble on bananas without buying one, just...staring in confusion?

"My nephew said 'I think the milk's gone bad.'"

Reddit | xXenemyunknownXx

It's tragic to see what a lack of structure and love can do to a young man, seeing how he turns to a life of crime.

"I knew those googley eyes would come in handy one day."

Reddit | twofortragedy

Man, the Cookie Monster has been looking kind of pale lately. Anyone know if he's alright?

"The instructions for my new dog shampoo."

Reddit | wxs11

This is very true. A wet and distressed pet is one of the wiliest creatures on Earth. Nothing can placate them until they are dry and provided with treats.

"This is Carter. He knocked on my door to ask if he could have a banana then left."

Reddit | Theone211

This has to be the coolest kid I've ever seen. The outfit, the confidence... He's gonna take the world by storm. I can feel it.

"Rule 1 of being a gangster: Wear clean underwear."

Reddit | tommypolish

This one makes me feel physically sick. I mean, come on man, put on some clean underwear and hitch your pants up!
