Going on a vacation with your fiancé only to return home alone and immediately lawyer up and not answer questions about their whereabouts Edit: RIP Gabby


KiMa14

It’s obvious that she was killed or “there was an accident and I panicked” . Regardless we need to get her body ASAP , before the wildlife does

Calling your child “sexy” Right up there with moms who don’t seem to understand that their son is not their boyfriend. What kind of weirdo threatens their son’s spouse/girlfriend with the line “the first tits he loved were MINE”


CatGirlColorado

Ewww. Gross parent and child relationships freak me out.

Leaving a piece of your body behind for your future generations. My great great grandpa did this by having his skull revoved and turned into a goblet for his daughter/ my great grandma. Lasted about a few years before someone stole it..


RichardBCummintonite

I think the creepiest part of that story is that someone stole it... Like a stranger? I suppose it's better than them making their own.


pdirth

A national newspaper having a countdown for when a child actress becomes "legal" for sex. Answers to questions that will surely come. ....Yes. The Sun (UK). Emma Watson.


archiminos

I loved that interview with Daniel Radcliffe. He was doing a play that had some sexual content and he was asked if he found it unusual to be sexualised at such a young age (think he was around 18-19 at the time). His response was that "they had no problem doing it to Emma Watson".


LeftyMothersbaugh

I have come to seriously love Daniel Radcliffe. He's had every opportunity to grow into a garbage fire of a person, but has instead become seemingly above-decent.


jk409

Daniel Radcliffe just seems like the most quietly badass polite English actor getting around these days.


SacredMitch

He also does the most surreal movies and he clearly loves it


HiiiighAllTheTiiiime

There's an addition to this, a photographer took an upskirt pic of Emma Watson as she was leaving a club or something, that pic got printed on a newspaper and just so happened to be legal because she just turned 18 that day. She said herself it has been 12 hours earlier the pictures would be illegal.


PM_ME_BAD_FANART

Upskirt pics should be illegal regardless of age. I get that celebrities aren’t afforded as much privacy as the common folk, but panty shots (and also the nude shots they sometimes grab of celebs at beaches/pools) are too much. It’s invasive and not newsworthy. Edit: grammar


Sleightholme2

They are now illegal as of 2019 in England and Wales and 2010 in Scotland.


OKara061

I still don’t believe the sun is a real paper. They sound like the onion whenever i see an article of them online

theOnlyDaive

How would you feel if the guy walks up to the urinal next to you and then, mid-stream looks right at you and says "Hey... nice watch."? How uncomfortable is that?


TeaTimeKoshii

Thanks, you should see my cock That'll teach him, and if it doesn't I'm in trouble.

freezingprocess

hanging out in a public bathroom timing how long people pee.


ChaqPlexebo

I swear to God. I did a lot of work in hospitals for a while, big fucking hospitals with tons of bathrooms all over the place. For some God damned reason, regardless of what time or bathroom I selected to take a shit in not 30 seconds after I sat down a janitor would knock on the door to clean the bathroom. It's not as if it was one janitor, just some random janitor would inevitably need to clean whatever bathroom I was in as soon as I got comfy. It's like I was being stalked by the janitors. So now I'm trying to take a shit knowing full well there's somebody out there actively timing how long it takes. EDIT: Yes I am aware this was a running joke on Scrubs.


xray_anonymous

This just brought back a memory I tried to repress - I, too, work at a hospital - of the time I was walking out of work but got hit with the danger rumbles on my way out and had to clench and run to the nearest public bathroom. It’s the largest one but I blessed my stars it was mostly empty. As I was absolutely destroying the toilet, a housekeeper lady came in and starts going stall to stall to give them the good cleaning. I’m sitting there sweating as the cursed colon won’t stop. Listening to her come closer and closer to my stall. She gets to mine, sees it’s locked, moves on. But then after she finished all the rest she just stood there. And waited. And waited. As I’m ruining this toilet and just want peace while I die of dysentery. And I didn’t want to have to come out of that stall after ten minutes of atomic bombing it and have to face this woman before she took one look inside the stall and probably started crying. Mind you, I am someone who normally will hold my shits in for hours to avoid pooping in a public bathroom. So this was my nightmare. 0/5 stars.


Olympus_Janitor

When I used to clean bathrooms, I noticed when there was someone who didnt make a noise in the stalls while I was cleaning. I did the basics that I could and then left, loudly, to make sure that they knew that i was leaving. So that they could do what they had to. I even kept guard for another employee who had ibs. I know what it's like to need that privacy. I would wait outside of the bathroom until they were done. I'm sure management noticed but I didnt care. They needed that time and I wanted to give them their privacy. Once I saw someone leave, I went in and finished cleaning. I'm sorry you had to have your space invaded when it was obvious you needed the space. Edit; better formatting. 2nd edit; thanks for the awards everyone! I never got one before!


ChaqPlexebo

Yeah I'm the sort of guy where once I'm done don't nobody go in there for another 35-45 minutes.


jpresley78

Technically, you can stand on the sidewalk and stare into someone’s house through a window. It’s not illegal as long as you stay off of their property, but it’s really freaking creepy


the_gilded_dan_man

If you do it for too long it is actually a form of stalking. Which is illegal. lol


wildeforwomen

When I was a child, we had a creepy horrible neighbor that would harass my family constantly. One of the things he did was stand at the corner of his yard and videotape me playing in a pool with my friends (we were around 8). My parents called the police but were told that it's legal if he's on his property. Edit: This was in the US and 20+ years ago so laws might be different by now.


GarfeelLzanya

I had a neighbor like this growing up. He never creeper on me or my brothers, but one time my dad saw him up on his roof, looking into the bathroom window of the house next door, presumably watching the 16byear old girl in there. My dad put a huge blue tarp up against our shared fenced, like ten feet tall and told the entire neighborhood why. The guy complained but couldn't do anything and eventually moved


Rufai4Echif1ier

> The guy complained I'm surprised he actually had the nerve to complain about not being able to peep into his neighbours' houses.


TyphoonFaxaiSurvivor

Whether he's guilty or not, his complaint was probably more about the dad telling everyone he was a peeping tom.


CatGirlColorado

Ours would walk around with a ruler and measure everyone’s lawns.


DoDrugsMakeMoney

I had a neighbor do this to me 5 summers ago. He made a complaint to the city, they gave me a citation giving me 2 weeks to cut my lawn. It got cut on the 13th day. Now, I don’t cut the lawn until the 13th day of the citation, every single fucken time. We’re trying to FIRE and retire early so we live in a modest home so it’s just less yard work I need to do. I’d have stopped by now but the dude is such an insufferable prick. I’ve told him I do it just to spite him, surprisingly he had nothing to say when I told him that.


Vast-Silver

Does he always stand in the same spot? If so, drop some bits of bologna there to attract wasps.


LukeAtom

Wasps can have a little bologna, but only as a treat.


SentinelMain

I was so ready to call bullshit on you for this but I looked it up “In the early spring, wasps will be seeking protein foods because they will be making nests and laying eggs. Some good choices for protein baits are hamburger and lunch meat. ... Later on in the summer, sweet foods work well as bait.” Wow. TIL


Fr0styF0x

My neighbor 2 houses down called the city on us because parts of the grass in our fenced in backyard was a few inches higher than she liked. It had been raining for weeks, and we simply don't have time to mow twice a day like some of the old people on my street when it's dry. She would have had to walk to the very end of her back yard to see into ours, so we said fuck it and killed the grass. She's been fuming ever since, but it's not illegal to have a shitty burnt out yard.

Parents using their kids for money Example: Youtube Kids channels


dearlystars

My 'favorite' is when parents of autistic kids post shocking videos of their overwhelmed, distraught children having meltdowns under the guise of awareness. It's a bit horrific how little privacy kids get these days, especially when they're not aware of the full consequences that content can have for them.


Dolemike007

My 7 year old is on the spectrum. He is a very sweet playful little boy with excellent manors; saying excuse me, I’m sorry, thank you, your welcome. When we go to a new area outside of the normal established places we know he will feel comfortable at, we always risk the chance of a meltdown. I’m not going to lie, dealing with meltdowns is horrible and very difficult for the adult. That being said, meltdowns are down right traumatic for the child having them. They are so overstimulated, overwhelmed with emotion they may not understand, and worst of all they desperately want to communicate what is upsetting them so bad , but are unable to. Many people will mistake meltdowns for the child throwing a fit. There are some similarities, but ramp a fit up to 10 with no clear stopping point, and sometimes they just happen out of the blue. My job and responsibility is to keep him safe, make sure he doesn’t hurt himself, and immediately remove or try to explore why the meltdown is occurring so I cam help calm him. It has never once occurred to me to record him when he is being HURT by something beyond his control. I didn’t even realize people recording their children having meltdowns and posting them online was a thing until I just read your comment. Shame on those parents, SHAME!


Ravens_and_seagulls

My dad is currently in an injury case against his old job. There’s been a car outside his house filming him for the last couple months trying to catch him doing compromising things to disprove his injuries. That’s very creepy


Painting_Agency

That sounds quite expensive.


Ravens_and_seagulls

Yeah but the really don’t want to admit my dads injuries are from twenty years of literally back breaking labor. They already sent us some supposedly detrimental footage of my dad going to the store or getting gas. It was extremely disturbing to see that footage and realize what’s happening. However, even yesterday we saw the same car parked outside.


Painting_Agency

Be a shame if somebody came by and stuck a banana in their tailpipe.


BAAT-G

[That would basically just turn the car into a shitty gun. ](https://mythbusters.fandom.com/wiki/Car_Capers)

Ssh, no facts please. I'm enjoying flashbacks to Beverly Hills Cop just fine without them.


Toadie9622

Insurance adjuster here. Never say that your injury makes it physically impossible to do a particular thing. Just say the injury makes it painful to do a particular thing, so you avoid it whenever possible. (Unless your injury has made you a paraplegic or quadriplegic).


SvarogIsDead

How do you feel if opposing counsel requests that you testify in regards to notice? I work on the other side and get into quite a few arguments about this.


Steeldrop

Though you could have some fun with it. Get a t-shirt made that says “I’m being followed by a pervert with a camera. Ask him why.” Or get your own camera and sit behind his car in a lawn chair with a big sign that says “volunteer pedophile monitoring team”.


euclideanvector

If you have kids you can throw a party with them. Make your dad to hang around with them (obviously, sitting down taking care of his back). Then call the cops on the creepy guy filming kids.


SenorKaboom

Saying, “Think of yourselves as sisters” when introducing a much younger new wife to one’s adult daughter. My father-in-law did this. Edit: Wow, this really blew up! Holy cow. Thanks for the awards, kind people! Some context: my FiL was in his late fifties, his new bride in her early twenties, which was indeed younger than his daughter (my wife). As creepy as his comment was (made on first introduction as we all stood there in my doorway after they showed up unannounced), I don’t think he consciously meant to imply the incestuous subtext. It was more like he was crowing about how he had attracted such a young wife. But his emotional intelligence and self-awareness were exactly that low that he could say such a thing. He was a really difficult person in general. In the end, the marriage was short and tumultuous, with him eventually accusing her of physical abuse and theft. I think they were both using each other, and they both got more than they bargained for.


FairyContractor

WTF?! No Dad, I don't want to imagine you shagging my sister, thank you very much.

"YOU'VE BEEN SHAGGED BY A RARE PARROT"


GyaradosDance

In some states, it's actually legal to take upskirt pictures with your smartphone, as long as they are wearing panties. Super creepy as hell. I only know this because a judge ruled a guy innocent for doing just that because of a law that was worded a certain way. No clue if the law has changed to include upskirt pics.


B1gWh17

ive worked in construction and built some Walmart shopping centers and distribution centers. had a site manager on a job tell me that Walmart used to have a *super* specific level of shine they wanted on their floors when they were finished and opened up for public shopping. however with the ever increasing presence of cell phones and better and better cameras, they had to begin to dull the floors because people were able to just grab upskirts by taking pics of the floor under people.

whothefuckami15

What the.... This is one of those things that is so bizarre it has to be true. Holy shit


aegeaorgnqergerh

There was recently a lot made about a law being introduced in the UK to make "upskirting" illegal, which astounded me as I'm sure that even before that specific act was illegal, it would still violate various other laws about taking incident photos, and could even be classed as assault.


HatMaverick

"Nobody is saying you can't eat a banana Terry, but you can't just stand on a street corner for 30 minutes and suck on it, you have to actually take a bite."


Sinful_Whiskers

I like bananas. I eat them a lot at work with lunch. In the military, I learned that when eating a banana, it's okay if you bring the banana to your face. Not the other way around. Go ahead, try it. Bonus points if you make eye contact with someone while your mouth is slightly open with the banana headed for it. Never gets old.


tomrex

Is it okay to slowly close your eyes as you bring the banana to your face?


curahee5656

You have to turn it sideways and eat it like a bear eats a salmon. Remove the doubt.


ashbertollini

So my 2yo daughter went through a 3 month phase of only eating her banana sideways, but think like corn on the cob one half all the way then the other.


Ina_minotaur_2

My kid eats the outside of the banana first. This leaves a slimy, skeletal, disgusting, finger of banana which she then eats. It is revolting.


SqueakyFarts99

Using a laser rangefinder to ensure you stay outside the effective radius of a restraining order.


tidytibs

Fortunately for the plaintiff, when the respondent is continually staying *just* outside of the distance specified in an order of protection it IS illegal and provides just-cause to get arrested.

If you don't have Stitcher, they have a website, Biggrandewebsite.com, and you can check out their stuff there and support them further if you enjoy what you see.

Parking across the street from an elementary school with binoculars Technically not illegal, but you'd definitely get the cops called on you and make the news.


GametimeJones

I work in commercial construction and we build a lot of schools. When we complete a project, part of my job is to take drone photos of the completed building. Typically by the time i get around to taking these drone photos, school has already started... So on several occasions, i look like i'm just some random guy standing out in the parking lot, taking drone photos of an elementary school during a normal school day. It's not a great look. I've encountered the cops a couple of times, but they've always been pretty cool about it.


WankWankNudgeNudge

You need a reflective vest and a clipboard, buddy. Maybe a hard hat


Stopmadness99

You can get away with a lot of stuff wearing this combo


aWhaleNamedFreddie

I had watched a video of a guy trying to make a point about how easy it is to steal a bicycle. So, he "stole" his bike which he had locked in the middle of a busy street. He used a giant pair of bolt cutters to cut the lock, but he was wearing a reflective vest and it was like he was invisible. Bystanders didn't even bother to look.

Paparazzi


Duosion

There’s a heartbreaking video of Paris Jackson trying to run from paps asking invasive questions about her dad who’d passed away. The way she just cries out “please leave me alone” as they stick cameras in her face. Terrible.


minimalblackco

It takes something I swear that’s in DNA to want to work as a papp and feel no remorse.


Panzer_Man

I'm pretty sure you have to be heartless to become a paparazzi. It's like tabloid magazines intentionally hire the most shitty people


Kibassi

Thinking about the clip with Emma Watson where she tells about paparazzis who took pictures under her skirt on her 18th birthday. Would have been illegal only a few hours ago but apparently was completely fine then.


EmiliusReturns

There were websites counting down to her (and other young female celebs) 18th birthday. Another one for the “legal but creepy” category.


dd2487

It was even worse here in the UK. A famous radio DJ on his show was counting down to her 16th birthday (age of consent here).


q25t

Are taking upskirt shots somehow not illegal when someone turns 18? Like that still seems like pretty clear sexual harassment at minimum.


Kibassi

I don't know about about America, but it is illegal here in Germany. It hasn't been for very long though. I remember the law being passed (or rather changed accordingly) about three years ago or something.


BraydnXP

Have y’all seen that clip of Kim kardashian filming her show and she’s being followed by the paparazzi and the camera turns to one of the paparazzi and he says he’ll sue if they take photos and he’s almost stalking her doing the same hahah


wgc123

I do remember reading a few times about different thresholds for public personalities. Paparazzi can stalk public personalities in ways that would be harassment for regular people


Dozinginthegarden

What makes you a public figure though? Being paid to film one thing so now everyone is allowed to film anything you do?


landragoran

Even worse, you can become a limited public figure against your will just by going viral. It's not exactly a clear-cut thing, but there's precedent for it.

It’s technically legal to check if a door is locked, as long as you don’t enter without permission. Edit: depending on where you live this could apply to both houses and cars Edit edit: you won’t find any laws permitting this activity, but laws associated with it are generally based on circumstantial evidence or rely on proving the suspect’s intent. An arrest may be likely, but proving intent is difficult, and charges might not stick. Results may vary in your precinct.

Homicidal_goldfish

Are you trying to tickle me?


mrdotkom

Ah yes the vampire clause


Liversteeg

Super not fun fact: Richard Chase, a spree killer/necrophile/cannibal, thought he was some sort of a vampire. When he went on his (horrific) killing spree, the victims were determined by whether or not their doors were locked. If it was unlocked, he considered it an invitation inside and since he was a vampire, he was allowed to enter. His crimes were particularly brutal and it’s crazy to think that something as simple as locking your door was the difference between him walking away or drinking your blood. ETA: correction, he didn’t think he was a vampire. He was a paranoid schizophrenic that thought he needed more blood and also happened to follow the invited vampire lore.


SightWithoutEyes

He didn’t think he was a vampire. He thought he didn’t have enough blood in his body and that his organs were falling apart so he needed more blood. He was a schizophrenic.


Liversteeg

He was referred to as the Vampire of Sacramento, but you are right in that I should have chosen my words more carefully. One of the many tragic aspects of the case, is how clearly mentally unwell he was. I appreciate you correcting me.


StressedAries

I grew up in a household where our door was NEVER unlocked so as an adult when I meet people who don’t lock their own doors I’m like “do you WANT to be murdered in the night? Cause this is how you get murdered in the night.”


booniebrew

Locking my doors is such a habit that I frequently lock guests out.


EmiliusReturns

I live in a pretty low-crime neighborhood and hooligans still walk up and down the street checking all the car doors pretty regularly. The local PD puts out PSAs about this constantly, which have been getting increasingly frustrated in tone as the months go by. I half expect the next one to straight-up say “if you leave your car unlocked and someone lifts your shit, we can do fuck all about it.” Edit: yes, y’all, I know theft is a crime. Please stop telling me.


MyOfficeAlt

You may or may not be amazed at the number of guns stolen out of unlocked cars. It's astronomical. There was some police department in Florida recently posting on their facebook basically saying "For the love of god please stop leaving your guns in your cars with the doors unlocked jesus christ."


Blametruth86

This one hits close to home. A good friend of mine lives in a major east coast city, as a single woman she is extra cautious. She was the victim of a known local “Instagram celebrity” this weekend. Basically this guy follows people (guys and girls) around and records them. When they get annoyed and tell him to stop he gets more and more obnoxious, trying to get a reaction. He is careful not to cross the legal line for stalking etc. and does it in public, so be “expectation of privacy”. He then posts the inevitable freak out online. I’m not going to share the page (my friend made the cut) because I don’t want to grace this troll with the page views.


MSteds728

I live in Baltimore and we had a guy doing that a couple years ago, he got charged after a bunch of complaints. Not sure what happened to him tho


katelledee

Ugh, my instinct was to downvote you solely on the basis of how much I hate that dude haha. He pled guilty to 8 misdemeanor charges, the state dismissed 3 and the other 15 they put on hold which means at this point they’re no longer able to bring those charges against him. Now he lives in Virginia, apparently.


MSteds728

Hahaha no worries at all, the only reason I knew of him was because he harassed my husband in Fells Point. Thank you for the update on his charges though!


Ysmildr

I knew about him because of the Eddy Burback video about him if it's the same guy


DoubleDeckerz

Sooner or later he's gonna do it to the wrong person and get laid out on the concrete. ETA: I'm aware that a physical altercation would get him more views. But that would be a small price to pay for a mouth full of concrete.


road_rascal

Or put in concrete.

I googled “What ever happened to Boonk Gang”. It made me more certain than ever that violence is in fact sometimes the answer. Face covered in tattoos and acting like a fool, then one dude breaks his jaw for talking shit. He spends a few months drinking through a straw with his jaw wired shut. Now he wears khakis and turtleneck sweaters. Goes by David or whatever his momma named him. All he needed was someone to fuck him up good enough to think twice about what he is up to.


Nurum

He just needed a hard reboot.

>Boonk Gang Wait, this is a thing? I saw this spray painted on a road near my house and I just assumed it was some dumb kids. Edit. It was still probably some dumb kids.


Milk-Man75

I think I've seen this guys videos before I wonder if you could just start blasting copywrited music so he has to kill the stream


greyl

Ya, I wonder what would be best to screw up their monitization. Streaming a Disney movie? Bringing up some porn on your phone and showing it to his camera?


BDMayhem

Definitely Disney.


jglitterary

Yeah, this is definitely the best tactic. Pull up some Disney music on your phone and blast it as loud as you can. Then even if he posts it, it’ll be easy to get taken down because Disney comes down on videos with their music in them like a ton of bricks.


acelister

The Star Wars theme. The instant those trumpets start, Disney's lawyers rub their hands in glee.


Genesis2001

If you have time to kill, also follow him around and when he starts harassing someone else, hit play on your phone. Bonus points for using portable speakers to really get more volume. Force him to waste time.


JimmySaulGene

One day he's gonna get punched in the face or kicked in his balls and he'll be surprised why


PikachuSaves

Nah he'll know exactly why and I wouldn't be surprised if he's looking to file a lawsuit


jcdevries92

Probably his end goal tbh


mbltlh

Yep. I live in a college town and there’s 2 “evangelical” men who have come to the free speech area of the student Union for years, probably over a decade now, and they film themselves calling all the girls who walk by whores and generally insult other people walking by too. Real vile shit. They also hang around football games and do the same. Their aim is to get attention and get harmed so they can sue people.


IppyCaccy

Payday loan companies.


thewhalehunters

Those little kid beauty pageants. Awful.


charlienotahorse

In some states in the U.S. a rapist can sue for visitation of the child born from their crime.


Media-consumer101

MLM's, though I think they'll be illegal soon enough. Edit: MLM as in, Multi Level Marketing.

Media-consumer101

I kid you not, I saw an MLM babe post once that called it a triangular business model.


EverGlow89

I'll try to find the picture I snuck but one time a dude tried to pitch me while I was eating at a McDonald's and he literally drew a fucking triangle. Edit : [Found it!](https://i.imgur.com/8cuHwUl.jpg)

Some people say deals are made on the golf course, i say they're made at McD's dammit


WheelNSnipeNCelly

I can go put up a camera with a giant lens and set it up to take pictures every 30 seconds while pointed at a popular playground full of children, while I also fly a drone taking pictures of the same playground. The act of taking pictures in public is not illegal, even if the subject doesn't want their picture taken. It's how the photos are used that determines if permission is needed. And as long as I'm using it for my own wierd, creepy personal reasons rather than trying to publish a book of them or put them in a movie, then it's not illegal. Of course this only applies in Canada and the US (other countries may have different privacy laws) and you do need the appropriate drone license. But I could still do it all day every day.

Memorizing the age of consent in every state or country.


Onequestion0110

And carrying a laminated card in your wallet that lists the relevant state code.


CDuddng

No Mark Wahlberg. It’s not illegal. Let me show you on this laminated card I carry with me at all times

Owning a collection of children's teeth.


alyisayif

Technically a lot of parents are guilty of this.


flippenzee

Ah the old Tooth Fairy Paradox... Feels weird to throw them out, but also feels weird to keep them.


1980pzx

Child brides in some parts of the World. Wtf is wrong with people.


tsukiyama28

thankfully it's not legal anymore but where I'm from it was extremely popular to marry a girl as young as 10 or even younger, usually the parents of the bride got property and money in exchange basically selling their kid. It's just pure disgusting


Str0ngStyle

Purity Balls/Dances. That shit where girls pledge their virginity to their fathers until they are married. EWWWWW


johnbaker3612

Yes that is creepy


shininghero

Sifting through someone else's garbage bins. Cops and collection agencies do it all the time to gather evidence. It's perfectly legal, as the bins are on the street which is public. You can even turn it around and do it to the cops. They'll still try and throw the book at you of course, but it's legal and the courts have ruled as such. UPDATE: this got popular, so it's CYA time. Please check your states laws on this beforehand. They're all different, and some might supercede the SCOTUS ruling mentioned by /u/Adambe_The_Gorilla.


StyrofoamShell

Huh, didn’t know this. Interesting!


Adambe_The_Gorilla

Actually learned a SCOTUS case about this in my gov. class. It was a local case, but went all the way up to the federal Supreme Court. They ruled that if the can was in the guys lawn, then it would’ve been an unconstitutional search, oddly enough. So, if your can is on your land, it can’t be searched. If it’s on the side of the road for garbage night, it can be searched by anyone.
