Ah, the joys of being an awkward human being. The constant overthinking, the creeping, ever-present feeling that you’ve done something wrong even though you didn’t—the majority of us know these feelings all too well. No wonder threads like this are trending on various social media platforms. Both Reddit and Twitter users have been sharing what makes them feel like criminals even though they’re not doing anything illegal. The list includes such gems as calling in sick when you’re *actually* sick or asking someone to return your money that they borrowed. It all feels so. damn. illegal. Why, you may ask? Well, let’s leave that question for psychologists to answer because our task is to deliver the most relatable answers to the question what feels illegal but isn’t? Scroll down below to read 45 answers that people have shared and don’t forget to leave votes for the ones that you find the most relatable! Even more so, if you feel like it, comment down below what makes *you* feel like a perfect criminal even though we know you’re a perfect, law-abiding citizen!

Like repay a debt? Ideally you shouldn’t have to ask.

Oh hell yes! Or going into a clothes shop wearing an item from the same store. “I haven’t stolen it!”

Also, it’s easy to stray into private property

Yeah that one is a real pain, especially when I have a longer beard and get “randomly selected” for a search.

About 160km/h. Yeah, that’s a common speed on the left lane… What scares me are the ones zipping by at noticeably more than 200km/h… that’s so fast, they just turn up behind you, flash their lights (illegal!), drive up far too close (super dangerous at those speeds) and vanish ones you give them way (because you aren’t ready to die yet). And politicians still insist that it doesn’t contribute to accidents… sure, if people drove carefully and kept appropriate distance to other cars. And also if the speed differences weren’t so crazy – trucks have to stick to 80km/h by law! And on the neighboring lane, some cars might come at 200km/h. I don’t drive THAT fast, but I’ve had a few close calls where a car or truck switched lanes and didn’t notice I was driving nearly twice as fast. And in the end, your average speed isn’t nearly as impressive – you have to break hard when someone switches lanes. Plus more accidents and therefore traffic jams. The cost of going fast is going slow…

Oh yeah, it’s like a test. Do they know the speed limit? Did it change and no one told you?? IS THIS A TRAP??
