Ever find yourself shaking your fist at the sky and thinking, “There should be a law against this!”—when in reality, if there were, it’d be total tyranny? Still, one can dream, right? If you daydream about petty laws to prevent the frustrating, capitalist, and just-plain-dumb non-rules of the world, then this #ThereShouldBeALaw Twitter thread prompted by Jimmy Fallon is for you:
It’s Hashtags time! Tag a tweet with #ThereShouldBeALaw and then say a funny or weird rule that you think should be made into law. Could be on the show!

Personally, I think ALL cars should have to, by law, give right of way to any pedestrian walking in the rain. I don’t want my hair to get wet, guys! But I can see how that might become dangerous, difficult to enforce, and probably more inconvenient for everyone involved.
STILL! In my ideal world, no one would be left waiting on a corner shivering in the rain while Mr. Nice-N-Warm-In-His-Car gets to drive around easy-peasy. #NYCProblems.
Here are the things everyone else thinks should become law:

#ThereShouldBeALaw against using PowerPoint if all you’re going to do is read your slides to us. We have eyes, give us the slides in an email or something and cancel the meeting so we get actual work done—or better yet, let us go home and take a nap

#ThereShouldBeALaw If you make an inspirational meme, you should have to superimpose the text over a picture of John Wayne Gacy or Charles Manson to see if your bull shit still works. pic.twitter.com/mIXznhztpB

#ThereShouldBeALaw against FaceTiming in public without headphones and getting mad at people who eavesdrop. Like sorry your daughter didn’t make varsity cheer Brenda but she can’t do a toe touch & that was the one rule.

#ThereShouldBeALaw against “replying all” in work emails. Reply directly to the boss if you want to ask 21 questions, Karen.
