16+ People Who Are Going To Do What They Want, When They Want

Part of existing in polite society entails a certain amount of going along to get along. We all do it. But sometimes, you just want to do what you want, y'know?

He did it.


Some of us would settle for a bowl of dry cereal. Some of us would never indulge such a ridiculous request. But these two friends are willing to go above and beyond.

Professional courtesy goes out the window.

Usually, fire departments and police departments get along. But not always. These firefighters decided they'd had enough with the PD collecting ticket revenue by hiding behind the sign the fire department built fair and square.

Happy now, Bob?

Reddit | Astro_Nout

Clearly some guy named Bob really wanted this guy to paint his fence. Fence guy decided to comply. But since he's all about bucking societal expectations, he painted the fence his way.

Dressed for success.

Reddit | Sinnerkloof

This guy isn't dressing for the job he wants. He's dressing for the thing he wants, and that thing is clearly an ice-cold slushie. Go forth, Slurpee Man, and share your stories of sugary hydration.

It's that time of year again.

Even when they're given lots of freedom, kids are never truly free to do what they want. When it's back-to-school time, they have to go back to school. But moms? They can do what they want.

Phone home.

Reddit | FastYaw

On one hand, this girl's cat is a fairly ugly cat. But on the other hand, it's a totally awesome E.T. And if you have a totally awesome E.T., you owe it to yourself to re-enact this scene.

He did it because it was there.

Reddit | Ostrantula

I'm not going to pretend to know the whole story behind this pic. Like, did he get dropped off by a helicopter or what? Either way, this guy is living life on his terms.

Tough regulations.

Reddit | Adsnipers

Lots of schools and workplaces ban websites. It's a little weird that school administrators banned a site for being educational, but I guess it's a sign that theirs is the only acceptable form of learning.

Surely this is illegal.

Reddit | Chocolateguyman

Here's the difference between people who say they're bad and people who actually are bad. Those who truly are bad boys aren't afraid to photographically demonstrate the true level of their wild ways.

A fridge too far.

Reddit | GetInMyJetSki

Syrup-on-syrup violence, in your own fridge? This husband is clearly not afraid to send a message, even if he's apparently not a great (direct) communicator. Maybe he's more of a visual communicator.

Marilyn who?

Reddit | Neordy

This guy saw his opportunity and he took it. And, judging from the look on his face, he has zero shame and zero regrets.

Wrong side of the tracks.

Reddit | GrantMC80

One minute they're spray-painting "swear words" on a wall, the next they're running into a convenience store, yelling "shoplifting" and running on out. Kids these days aren't like they used to be.

Neigh-T Neigh-T.

Reddit | Murderhands

Here's an exception to the list. The person isn't doing what he wants, because what he wants is to remove the AT-AT outfit. His horse, on the other hand, is doing exactly what they want.

Must be a Simon and Garfunkel fan.

Reddit | MisterDecember

I don't think this is what S&G were actually singing about, because Subway sandwiches didn't even exist back then. But it's still a fun tribute, and clearly the work of someone who DGAF.

Thank goodness for dumb criminals.

Reddit | dillonwithab

Getting your bike stolen sucks. You can respond by reporting it, buying a new bike or giving up biking forever. But the simplest way might be to find the thief and just...ride away.

What hurricane?

Reddit | blapowwwwah

When hunger strikes, you don't care if the streets have flooded. You grab your kayak and some buddies and you head on down to this questionably named seafood joint, pronto.

In the finest gallery.

Reddit | ctrlaltdelete285

A boring person might see a coworker's discarded spoon and get mad at the lack of decorum. But an enlightened soul will seize the day and turn it into a masterpiece of passive-aggressive art.

We've been there.

Reddit | marianglik

I think this is a guy thing, but I'll never accept taking multiple trips from the car to carry in the groceries. Even if my arm falls off, I'm doing what I want.

When your parents suddenly change the Netflix password and don't tell you what it is.

Reddit | Carisadoll

Clearly this woman's urgency to get a DVD far outweighed the need to put on any clothes. A bed sheet and flip flops are basically an outfit, right?

Passive aggressive notes get passive aggressive responses.

Reddit | Brodoor

I don't think any workplace would be complete without one coworker who' has an affinity for posting these types of notes around the office. But not everyone is just going to read something like this and move on with their day.

You did say there were free refills though.


To be fair, I don't think anyone at this KFC joint really specified what he could use to refill his beverage, and since he's still using a KFC product to fill up... I really don't see a problem here.

"I'll be right with you."

Reddit | dortmurder

The best part about this is that I'm pretty sure that woman is wearing glasses, so odds are those people waiting for her to look up from her computer can definitely see the reflection of her super important Solitaire game in her lenses.

"I don't have cable at home."

Reddit | forwhattheysay

I'd like to think this woman also brought her ownchair

Zebra Xing.

Reddit | Littlewing29

I don't see what the problem is here. Clearly this woman (who, believe it or not, resides in the great state of Florida), found a great way to get around town.

8 a.m. classes got me like...


Hey, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. You can't expect this guy to just skip out on eating because he has a lecture now, can you?

Pictured: a guard who's run out of you-know-whats to give.

Reddit | adictamente

I'm mostly impressed by the quality of that poster. To anyone standing directly in front of this business, and perhaps slightly far away, that's one menacing security guard they do not want to mess with.

It's a bit of a different story for anyone standing to the side of it, though.

I would also accept "moist".

Reddit | bbbcsgalcm

Word clouds are a good/lazy way to illustrate a thought or a concept. But when you're the type of student who's taken an oath to destroy word clouds, drastic action is sometimes necessary.

When mom says she'll take you grocery shopping.

Reddit | mysonmarkruffalo

This woman climbed into the cart while her deeply understanding mother pushed her around the store and if that's not love, then I don't know what is.

That's one hot shot.


When it comes to getting the perfect picture, photographers will do just about anything and everything. They just don't care.

This is how you keep the love alive.


I particularly like the addition of the riding crop, though I'd like to think he has zero intention of using it.

That VIP lifestyle.

Reddit | nvalenti27

One time I had access to an airline's VIP lounge and I felt like pampered royalty. Unfortunately, I'll never have the courage that this man did. What's it like to literally subsist off of the lounge offerings?

I think I missed this part of the story.

Reddit | Indigovisions

Oh, you didn't know Spider-Man was present at the birth of Jesus? Well you better give the ol' Bible another read-through because I think you missed a few parts.

Looks fun.

Reddit | Calorie_Killer_G

Bingo Night can be a fun way to blow off some steam and hang out with your friends and neighbors. If you let a silly little flash flood get in the way, are you really living?

On point.

Reddit | PeculiarPete

Cosplay can get pretty elaborate. But sometimes, if you really want to nail a character, less is more. I respect this guy's costume, even if I don't respect how he handled the whole Night King thing.
