Acts Of Defiance Will Have You Beaming With Pride And Will Make You Want To Be Defiant Too

by Shasta

Some will try to make you feel like it's a bad thing, but in all actuality the one people capable of defiance are the strong ones.

Going against the grain is the boldest thing you could ever do with your life. But it's important to keep a distinct difference in using defiance for the greater good vs to hurt someone or something.

Kindness should always stay as your #1 goal. Even in being defiant.

Bonus points if you can achieve defiance without anyone else noticing. Extra bonus points if you can succeed in continuing to do so for an extended period of time.


Let's come together and change the damn world.

One small act of defiance at a time.


Let the countdown commence.

15. God bless you human.

Since 9/11 almost every office building you walk into in NYC requires you to sign in with your name or state your name into a camera for ‘security purposes’.

I give them names of people from history.

No one has ever noticed.

14. It truly is the little things that make the world turn round.

I never take my change from vending machines.

When someone finds that 15 cents it probably makes them much happier than it would make me if I took it.

13. Defying businesses is one of my favorite acts.

I have a BofA credit card that I leave a $1.50 credit balance on, due to them rebating one of their bullshit fees (twice) after I complained about it.

They never noticed their own mistake.

I don’t plan on using the card again, and if they ever close the account it will force them to mail me a check.

12. REBEL!

My uncle sticks his stamps upside down as a rebellion against the monarchy.

But he’s a douche.

11. Seriously though, ink is stupid expensive.

Fax all-black documents to people you hate. Suck it, toner cartridge.

10. My husband would say...You're going to end up giving someone pink eye someday!

When a kid is being a brat in a noisy and public area, I casually get close to them and fart on their head/face.

I’m really tall so it’s usually a direct hit.

9. That's called the "doctor" signature.

I sign electronic credit card scanners with a vague, meaningless squiggle.

8. This is a class act of defiance.

When I get sent credit card applications in the post with “Postage Paid” on them I put them back in the post to myself.

In the UK this means their accounts with Royal Mail get charged every time it goes through the system.

Some applications I’ve mailed to myself 50 or 60 times.

7. I'm willing to bet the maids didn't notice and you never received a charge either! Genius.

When staying at a hotel I ate the ridiculously expensive can of Pringles from the mini-bar and replaced it with a cheap one I bought at the shop opposite.

6. IT people are the ones you gotta look out for!

I leave extremely unprofessional comments in production code.

5. And someone will undoubtedly be terrified.

I build paper cranes and hide them in the ceiling of my dormitory. I’m kind of like the greeks and their trojan horse.

When the panels eventually need to be replaced, my army will pour out of the ceiling.


I recycle Birthday presents.

I’ve yet to give a gift to the original sender, but I live in fear.

3. Slow and steady wins the race.

I have an account at citibank with less than 25 cents in it. Every month they send me a letter with my account balance on it, which costs more to send than the worth of my account.

I am slowly taking down citibank with every letter.

2. Oh no...No...I do not comply here!!!

In the ultimate act of silent protest, I have never seen the movie Titanic. Take THAT, Leo!

I’m sure your pockets are feeling pretty empty right now, eh?

1. The best for last. I too, rarely ever wear matching socks.

My socks never match. I haven’t bought a fresh pack in a while, but since its winter i always have jeans on and no one can tell anyways.

Most desperate acts include hospital socks with the grips on the bottom and 3x too small gf socks, just used to cover bottom of feet.

I’m going to keep all of these in my back pocket!
