No one likes playing by the rules, especially when they’re forced upon us. The good news is that rules tend to be black and white, meaning there’s typically a gray area. Many people use this area to generate a way around them. You just have to be clever enough to figure it out. Once people find that loophole and beat the system, it usually feels like a victory. There are some brilliant people out there who found a way around the rules, even if it could’ve led to an embarrassing moment.
Whether it was making a fake parking ticket, painting the walls with an endless supply of paint samples, or teachers who organize “spontaneous” meetings when the school bans planned ones, these people are an inspiration to us all. They stuck it to the system by making up their own creative ways to get things done by thinking outside the box. Check out how they beat the system in 50 hilarious ways here. Because of these, maybe we’ll think twice the next time we get too focused on simply following the rules.
50. Vodka Burrito
We’ve all attended a festival or concert at least once or twice where booze wasn’t allowed. It’s frustrating because you know how much alcohol costs once you’re inside. Luckily, there are ways to beat the system, just as this person posted on their Twitter account. They decided to put vodka into a water bottle, and then cover the bottle with a burrito wrap, making it look like a delicious meal. If we didn’t know there was a bottle of vodka in that burrito, we’d probably try to eat it. The “vodka burrito was a success.” Let’s hope they had a good night (via Twitter).
