40 Times People Cheated the System By Acting Like They Belong


by heatfeed

Our sense of identity stems from our sense of belonging. We can’t who we are, what is our purpose in this world until we determine where we belong. People spend their lifetimes searching for their roots. But then there are some who know how to hack the system. 

Reddit has a 520K-strong subreddit named r/ActLikeYouBelong. You might wonder why there are so many. It features tales, photos, and videos of people who are posing as someone they aren’t.

You’d be amazed how many of these wicked geniuses get away with it, from a man acting as a delivery driver and stealing alcohol to a lady bluffing her way into a music festival as a photographer.
