15 Genius, Possibly Illegal And Unethical Life Hacks That You Probably Didn’t Know About
Everyone loves a good life hack. It’s always nice to find out a way to do something or get away with something that you’ve never thought of before or tried.
This is clearly not your usual life hack stuff here, but I have to admit some of these are pretty damn good. Now we’re DEFINITELY not advocating trying any of these out yourself, but they’re definitely interesting.
This won’t apply to all parking garages BUT I used to park at one where, right before I paid my ticket at that vending-machine-type doohickey, I would walk back to the entrance gate, press the button for another ticket and pay instead with the new one. I would be charged according to my stay of 30 seconds (when in reality I had been there for hours). ~ MrDudeAbides
You can use an empty Visa Rewards Bank Card to make in-flight purchases. The cards cannot be run while in flight so all transactions are completed once you land, so you can receive any item you want for free. There is no way to track the failed transaction because your information is not tied to the card. My friend is a pilot and I have done this for years. ~ jalapeno_face_
When we were teens we used to go to the movies on busy nights in large groups. Two people would buy tickets, enter the theatre. One person would head back outside with the two stubs and bring a third person in. Third person would exit with both stubs and bring a fourth person in. We sometimes repeated this until we had over a dozen people in the theatre for the price of two tickets. The ushers never saw the same face more than twice. ~ twerq
I went to a University where the student to Parking ratio was extremely terrible. You would basically have to show up 2 hours before class (if you lived off campus) to get a parking spot. Personally, I lived on campus, so for me parking wasn’t that bad unless I left the campus before 5 pm. So every time I walked to my car later in the day, I noticed that a parking spot right in the front (prime piece of parking) always had an orange cone on it. There was nothing wrong with it, it just had an orange cone. Later that semester I had to go get something out of my car in the morning, and see a guy drive up to the cone spot, get out of his car, put the cone in the trunk, and proceed to park. Turns out this guy has been doing this for months, using the cone to “reserve” his spot. Apparently no one ever questions or moves the cone when he places it back on the parking spot when he leaves. ~ Korashy
