Take a Walk on the Wild Side
I’ll never forget the one time when I was quite young and so rebelliously ripped the tag off a mattress, despite its clear warning not to do so. Immediately afterwards, I was gripped by a sense of fear that I would indeed face some legal repercussion. Years later, here I am, fully aware that breaking the rules doesn’t always hold any consequences.
What is so enticing about disobeying? Be it a parent, teacher, or a warning label on something lying around your house, there is something in our nature that inspires us to break rules even when it’s against our better judgement.
Whether deliberately ignoring a “Don’t try this at home” warning or just plain being stupid, we’ve all had our fair share of foolish encounters from time to time, but luckily most of us are still around to tell the tale. Redditors were asked to share what happened when they left common sense behind and broke the rules, and these stories might remind you a bit of your own childhood!
Are rules really meant to be broken?
