Work Smarter, Not Harder
When we’re young, we hear a lot of talk about being truthful and about how cheaters never win.
But is that really true?
What is it about our human nature that even young children will try and get away with trickery and cheating, from the smallest moves in board games to bigger lies and hacks? While our morality teaches us to condemn such cheating, sometimes we can’t help but applaud someone who is innately clever.
As we grow older, we learn where and when it’s okay to cut corners. These “life hacks” are just simple tricks and truths that save us time, money, and effort, and more often than not, there are no victims or hard feelings.
The pro-tips may not be the most ethical hacks on the planet, technically speaking, but nor are they criminal or harmful… for the most part. Wink wink. So work smarter and not harder, and keep on reading these useful tips!
Dress the Part
“There’s clothing that allows you to do virtually everything. Want to do graffiti? Wear one of those white paperish overalls. Steal a streetsign? Carry a toolbox, dress like a mechanic and you’re good to go. Dress up like a technician, walk into an office, tell somebody you were “told to take that PC”, you can just walk out with it. Never underestimate how little people question the uniform.” (ElectroKitten)
“Gain access to any event by putting on a chef coat, carrying two lobsters, and walking briskly.” (colonicdryheaves)
“You don’t even need the chef coat. No ones gonna stop a man with two lobsters.” (HaYuFlyDisTang)
“Always book your hotel room with the prefix of Doctor. When the morning crew pre-assigns rooms for that days arrivals, they are likely to put you in a nicer room to avoid an unhappy pretentious Doctor bitching about being next to the elevator.
Also, if you call a hotel and they are booked for the weekend. Just call back later and book your arrival day on Thursday with a departure day of Tuesday. Hotel reservation systems are designed to turn away two night stays in favor of 3, 4 or 5 night stays. So just call the hotel back later and make the adjustment to your current reservation for just the days that you want. Make your arrangements directly with the hotel when possible to avoid any robotic responses from a central reservations department.
