Top 10 Things We Obviously Shouldn't Do But Do Anyway

Each one of us, at some point, has done things we know we obviously shouldn't, but we do them anyway. It's a universal human phenomenon, and it's these peculiar behaviors that make us, well... so human.

You see, we live in a complex world that's filled with should's and should not's, do's and don'ts, rights and wrongs. And while most of us have a pretty good idea of what we're supposed to do in most situations, we occasionally veer off the path of righteousness and find ourselves in the wilderness of our missteps.

This list is for all those quirky, sometimes baffling things we do, even though we clearly know we shouldn't. Remember, this isn't about finger-pointing or blame - it's about understanding those funny, somewhat bewildering behaviors that make us all human.
The Top Ten
1 Throw away a recyclable item in the trash because the trash is closer
2 Put an empty box of food back in the fridge

I do this all the time, and my mom gets mad at me for doing it.

3 Leave the toilet paper roll empty

I hate when people do this, especially after I use the restroom, so I have to yell for someone to bring me some toilet paper.

4 Put gum under a table

I'll be honest. I don't think I've ever done this, but I've encountered enough to know many people do.

This ruins public property and should be considered vandalism.

People do this all the time. Not kidding.

5 Not flush the toilet

Okay, I'll be honest. I don't understand why you wouldn't flush a toilet. It's not hard. I promise.

My brother does that all the time!

6 Procrastinate

Um, I do this every single time I have homework.

I do this all the time, and as a result, I stay up until three in the morning working on some project.

7 Watch reality TV

I love watching Dance Moms. Watching reality TV is okay. I don't think you should live a life where you aren't allowed to enjoy reality TV if it's entertaining.

... Dance Moms is a guilty pleasure of mine. I'm sorry.

I watched many seasons of Shark Tank, and I'm not ashamed of it at all.

8 Pee in a pool

"There are two types of people in the world: people who pee in a pool, and people who are lying."

9 Drop an ice cube and just kick it under the fridge

I sometimes do that when I'm really mad.

I either do that or let my dog eat it.

What can I say? I'm living on the edge.

10 Leave the power on when not using a device
The Contenders
11 Overeat

I do, but I still don't really get fat. My stomach is a bottomless pit, so it takes at least four slices of pizza or eight sandwiches to fill me. I'm not kidding. I usually can't get full, but if I do, it's only for five minutes. Then I'm hungry again.

I do this at buffets all the time.

12 Wear clothes twice

If I pair it with something different and wear it two days later... No one would notice, right?

13 Spend too much money on oneself
14 Drive to somewhere just around the corner

My mom does this because it's either raining, too hot, or she's just too lazy to walk.

15 Mock the disabled

That's rude. I would never do that.

16 Leave the toilet seat up
17 Eat sugary sweets
18 Steal
19 Microwave cup noodles
20 Lie about what people know you did anyways
