Eight Unethical Tricks That Will Make Your Life Way Easier
Here are a few UNETHICAL little tricks to make your life easier. Pick the SPANISH option when you call customer service to get a rep in the U.S., who probably speaks better English than someone in India. Refer to your doctor as "she" when you call in a fake sick day, to seem more believable. And check StubHub right before a concert to see good seats that will be unoccupied.
1. When you call a customer service line, choose SPANISH as your language. Most of those call centers are in the U.S., not India, and the waits are shorter. Plus most of the reps can also speak English . . . definitely better than someone in India.
2. If you want breakfast, you can probably wander into any Holiday Inn Express or Hampton Inn in the morning and get it free. Especially if you REALLY look like you belong there by carrying a newspaper or dressing up.
3. If you want to buy something from Craigslist, email an offensively lowball offer from a fake email. Then, a few hours later, send your real offer from your real email. The person will be much more likely to accept it.
4. Always throw "rock" in rock-paper-scissors with friends so they know you're a "rock" person. Then the one time it REALLY matters, throw scissors. (???)
5. Buy a cheap ticket to a sporting event or concert. Then, an hour before it starts, go to StubHub and see which good seats are still unsold. Then just head to those seats instead of your cheap seats and sit in them.
6. If you're calling in a fake sick day to work, say your doctor is a "she." That tiny detail makes it seem SO much more legit.
7. When you go out, announce, "I'm not drinking tonight." That's the fastest way to make sure other people will buy you drinks to try to persuade you to start drinking with them.
8. At the dentist, take a photo of the barcode, name, and address on a magazine in the waiting room. Now you'll have all the details you'll need to log in to read the online version of that magazine. It works for most of them.

7. Pretending to know about WINE.
8. Calling popular movies GARBAGE even though you secretly love them.
9. Re-tweeting news to seem like we're up on current events.
10. Frantically researching the news to try to have a few talking points before dinner parties. (Daily Mail)
