The Laziest Thing These People Ever Did Was...

See what happens when lazy meets genius.

Being lazy is a part of life. It's why we eat pizza cold when the microwave seems like too much work, or why we give dirty clothes a Febreze wash instead of one with water and detergent. Certainly there are times we need to feel productive, but it doesn't make crawling out of a warm bed on to your icy cold bedroom floor any less miserable. 

If ever you've considered yourself to be "above average lazy," the folks at Reddit have some news for you. Check out 10 of the laziest things we've ever heard of someone doing, and feel a little better about your own lack of motivation:


1. The Lights-On Type of Lazy

Shot 10 Nerf darts at my light switch, from bed. Missed all of them and slept with the lights on.

4. The Will-Not-Do-Stairs Type of Lazy

5. The Would-Rather-App-It Type of Lazy

TV remote was 2 feet out of reach, so I downloaded the remote control app instead.

6. The Antsy Type of Lazy

I tried to skip to the good part of a 33 second Youtube video.

7. The Incapable-of-Paperwork Type of Lazy

I was in a class called OJT (on-the-job training) in high-school. Everyday the last 25% of school was dedicated to me being able to leave class to go to "work". We were given grades by our employers which would then turn into grades for the class. As a high-school senior I convinced the teacher that oversaw this program that because I had my own corporation that I used to sell stuff on ebay I should be able to be my own boss. She agreed. I failed that class because I didn't bother to fill-out the paperwork to give myself a grade.

8. The Socks-as-Napkins Type of Lazy

Eating a microwavable meal in bed, I got it all over. I then took off my sock to use as a napkin.

9. The Antique-Roadshow-Is-Good-Enough Type of Lazy

I once watched 2 hours of Antique Roadshow because the cat jumped up in front of the TV sensor as I was flicking through channels and fell asleep.

10. The Too-Lazy-to-Clap Type of Lazy

Used to have one of those 'clap on, clap off' lights in my room. I hated clapping so I just made an audio recording of me clapping and mapped it to one of the programmable keys on my keyboard.
