People Share Things They Believe Are Ludicrous.
There are some things that just won't make any sense to us, no matter how many times we try to be open-minded and look at scenarios through different perspectives. We are all wired differently and view the world through our own unique lenses.

Wedding cake. I called a bakery asking for a price for a wedding cake that feeds 60 people they told me those prices start at $400. I called back that same bakery and asked for a birthday cake, same number of tiers, that feeds 60 people and they said $80. What a scam.

Ajit Pai and his view on net neutrality. Anyone who doesn't get their news from Facebook knows how important this issue is yet he continues to sew the web of lies that what he's doing is making the internet a better place for all. What a crock of crap.

The same can be said for your interactions with cops, most of whom are perfectly happy to let minor infractions slide––When was the last time you were actually ticketed for jaywalking?––provided you're not a total Karen should you interact them.
Your local police officer likely doesn't care about jaywalking or the fact that you went five miles over the speed limit unless you give him a reason to, as we learned when Redditor Takdel asked police officers: "What stupid law have you enforced just because someone was an a-hole?"
