It’s sort of a meme that one of the worst parts of “adulting” is making appointments for yourself. I mean, who wants to like, speak to a person and schedule a responsibility?

What’s worse is when the places we’re trying to go seem to have policies designed specifically to keep you from easily doing so.

Which is weird. Like, don’t you all want my money? Work with me here.

Luckily, there are ways around this sort of thing. They require a little cleverness and a lot of nerve, but they can be pulled off in style, like Tumblr user hotmolasses explains.

Step 1: Try to Walk-In

You think we’re gonna let just anybody in here? Think again.

Step 2: Make the Call

The fact that they didn’t even bother walking out of the lobby first just kills me.

Step 3: Make an Appointment

How can you miss that this is happening right in front of you? Don’t you hear the echo?

Step 4: Confirm

The fact that she was mad about it is the icing on the cake.

Step 5: Satisfaction

Now share the story far and wide.

You don’t have to be a full-blown Karen to get your way as a customer. Just apply a little wit and flair, and you’ll be well on your way to checking that errand off your to-do list.

What’s a strange loophole you’ve used before?
