There’s not much worse out there than when you walk in on something or someone and just wish you could disappear and rewind your life.
We’ve all done it at least once, and those moments really do stick with you.
These 12 people can recall those moments perfectly, and are sharing the ones they can absolutely never forget.
My parents were getting ready to head out for a double date with my friend’s parents. Everyone came over to our place beforehand and brought their kids because their oldest daughter was going to babysit the rest of us.
The adults were in the kitchen chatting and my sibs and I decide we want to show our new sitter this home video we made of a turtle we caught. None of the tapes were labeled well so of course we end up putting on what turned out to be my parents’ sex tape.
Five kids with our jaws on the floor watched as my mom pulled down my dads boxers and started blowing him. Dad was hung apparently. The sitter who was maybe 15 at the time dove for the VCR and powered it off. Within seconds all the parents come through, “ok, kids, be good…” met with our stunned silence.
2. He did that on purpose.
Was fixing an elderly neighbor’s laptop that had nudes of his wife on the desktop with the thumbnails at maximum size. It’s like he wanted me to see them.
I will say though, she had a bangin’ bod for a woman in her 70s.
I think it’s safe to say he thought the same.
3. I don’t think anyone probably wanted to see that.
One time I was up late at night scrolling Facebook at the same time as my drunk and high off Xanax married mother who was an entire timezone away at the time. She was messaging an old fling from high school while her husband was away at work and was sending him close up pictures of her va**na.
How I know this is because she didn’t send them via messenger, SHE POSTED THEM ON HER ACTUAL FACEBOOK PAGE.
I had to call her in the middle of the night in her zonked out stupor to get her password to delete pictures of v**ina off her own Facebook page.
4. A rude surprise.
My aunt sent a picture of her tits to my mom after she got them done.
I happened to be the one using the phone when the message came through and opened it without expecting anything like that.
5. Someone’s getting an A.
Was working at a hotel during college and saw my lab partner get a room with the professor.
When I was still married, my (then) wife had left her phone on to run to the bathroom while I was in bed, I looked at it for the time, and found it was left open to a secret Gmail account she was using for sending literally hundreds of nudes back and forth between many many dudes.
For years. Up to that night while she was fully 6 months pregnant. Mostly original stuff too. I think that hurt more.
7. That poor man.
My dad gave me a piece of furniture one time and I found a post-it note which had been stuck to the bottom.
I picked it up, and in my dad’s unmistakable handwriting were various notes about gay personal ads he’d been responding to — details about the other guys.
Their names and ages and sexual interests, the status of their conversations, etc. My dad was, at least I thought, very straight. I put two and two together and realized this piece of furniture was from an apartment he kept briefly while he and my stepmom were on the outs for about a year.
None of this bothered me one bit, but I got the distinct impression that my stepmom (an older, very conservative lady) would have NOT been cool with any of this… I let him go to his grave without ever telling him.
8. No argument there.
The night I learned my ex gf was cheating, she just got up from the couch to kill a bug and left her phone face up on the couch with Snapchat open.
The chat had a picture of her b**bs and some sexting replies from the guy.
My heart dropped down to my butt.
Man, cheaters suck.
9. I have a lot of questions.
Bout 5 years old woke up to the snow finally starting to melt. Notice a girl “asleep” in the garden. Went a told my dad, he took one look and told me to go play in my room.
Turns out girl had been “asleep” in our front garden for about 2 weeks buried and frozen under the snow.
I didn’t know she was dead until I was about 16 when I mentioned it to my dad “remember that girl asleep in the garden” Dad “she was dead you idiot.”
As far as I know she was like late teens early 20’s. We lived in a pretty rough area , lots of drugs etc. She had probably been out partying sat on our garden wall and passed out. I do not know exact cause of death or toxicology report.
10. This just made me laugh.
Grandma naked… repeatedly.
My room is across the hall from the bathroom and I would do homework a lot with headphones on. I heard my grandma holler something to me from the bathroom.
Took my headphones off and look to the bathroom door right as she opened it to go to the guest bedroom.
Turns out she was saying “don’t look! Naked grandma!”
11. Slow clap.
“My company’s entire payroll on a spreadsheet.
Someone left it on the printer.
Used the info to get a way past due raise.”
12. What on earth?!
I guess not me but my dad. He stepped outside a bar one night on a rainy day to get more smokes from his car (this was back when you could smoke inside) and saw one guy kneeling on the ground holding another dude face down in a pothole puddle and the other guy thrashing wildly.
He said that instinct took over and he just ran up and kicked the attacker in the head as hard as he could, knocking him out. He sat with the victim until he left to make sure the dude was ok and didn’t try to murder the now unconscious attacker. Then he made an anonymous 911 call so that someone would tend to the unconscious guy and left.
He said it was the creepiest thing he ever just walked in on and he never went back to that bar again.
13. I’m laughing so hard.
When I was a kid I had to pull one of my ferrets out from under my parents’ bed and locked in his jaws was a bright red rubber d**do.
14. Definitely something you never want to see.
Saw a man crash his motorcycle into the back of a parked car. He flipped over the car hitting his head on the pavement and dying on scene. Firefighters showed up and sprayed his brains and blood down the storm drain.
Later found out it was a girls father who I went to middle school with. I was 12.
15. That’s not a bad day.
I had a tree house in my back yard. The neighbors behind us had a pool. I was 12 their daughters were 18 and had their boyfriends over.
They end up jumping topless into the pool while I was chilling in the tree house reading
16. Mail fail, Teach.
In my high school Spanish class, our teacher had taped (VHS) a telenovela for us to watch.
When she put the VHS tape in, there was about .25 seconds of of a porno that played…a topless woman moaning.
Out of a class of around 30 kids, only about 5 of us looked around at each other and locked eyes with a “did anyone else just f**king see that?!” look.
Our teacher must have taped over an old porno VHS of hers.
17. That’s definitely interesting.
naked men wrestling on my mom’s laptop (not gay porn, it was actual wrestling in a ring, just with their soft d**ks out) when i was like 9.
she later came out as a lesbian, so i’m not sure what that was about.
18. Just a bit off the path.
I was hiking in a forest with some friends, and as we continued on the trail, the mound of rocks on our right side opened up to more forest. Myself and one of my friends were leading the other two by a couple of yards, and we both briefly saw a couple having doggystyle s^x several hundred feet into the forest on that right side.
My friend and I gave each other that “did you see that s*%t too?” look. By the time my other friends caught up the couple had split and we couldn’t see them anymore. It was like 2pm in broad daylight off of a main road, which was the weirdest part.
19. He ratted out his dad.
Was working on a school project with some kid. Opened a folder where I thought we saved some of the videos for the project. It was nothing but his dad’s beastiality porn.
I’ll never forget the look on that kid’s face. His parents got a divorce like month later, and he moved away.
20. One awkward moment.
I was at a work-related retreat for a week and ended up sharing a room with a guy from a different site. It was my first time meeting him, but we hit it off pretty well from the get-go.
The last night I was there, I walked into our room and found him in bed with one of my male coworkers. Without missing a beat, I did a 180 and walked out the door without saying a word. As I was walking away, my coworker angrily whispered, “I thought you said you didn’t have a roommate.” (For some reason, my roommate thought I was going to leave a night early, but that didn’t happen.)
Ended up spending a couple of hours at the main cabin chatting with some folks so they could have their fun.
I don’t work there anymore, but I remember every time I would run into said coworker, he would always try to avoid chatting with me. I definitely didn’t care if he was sleeping around, but, in retrospect, it was probably more embarrassing for him than it was for me.
21. That’s definitely a moment.
I went on a road trip with my grandma when I was 15. My mom let me borrow her suitcase. Pretty sure she forgot that she’d stashed an envelope of VERY dirty photos of her and my stepfather. About a dozen, in various acts, with various people and objects.
My grandma walked in as I discovered them and I was in a PANIC fearing she might ask to see the photos I was looking at.
Thankfully my aunt distracted her and I was able to hide them away in the pocket where I’d found them.
It was quite an awakening.
22. I mean. Good for them.
My grandparents were both a bit deaf. I was downstairs prepping dinner and called out to them.
I placed their plates on a tray instead and walked upstairs to their room, their door half open.
Saw my fully naked grandma riding my fully naked grandpa like they have no aches and pains. It’s weird, like normally they do everything in slo-mo. Apparently not.
23. A rough day on the job.
I was working airport security. I know I’m sorry, we all hate it too. The x-ray guy sees a jar of cream in a bag. I’m called to the bag check and get the owner of the bag to come with me to do a bag check.
I look through it, find what appears to be a jar of gel and i tell the tiny effeminate man he can’t bring gels through. He looks to the other side of the check point tells his very large stereotypical plumber looking boyfriend this.
And he says; “No.. not.. it’s. not.. YOU F**K IT!!!!” Yeah he yelled the last part, i was holding his fleshlight. I had to do a chemical swab on a fleshlight.
24. Why did he answer the door??
When I was a kid, maybe 8 years old, I went over to visit my friend who lived across the street. I’d often come over unannounced and just knock on their door to ask if my friend wanted to hang out.
So I get there and knock on the door and wait for it to be answered. No one comes but I can hear noises indicating that someone is home so I knock again. My friend would often play video games with headphones on and would be slow to answer the door, so I just keep waiting and knock again, unsure why it’s taking so long for the door to be answered. My friend’s dad walks into the hallway to try to spy through the glass door to see who it is. He stands there fully naked, dick swinging, and we make eye contact through the glass. I turn to walk away, but he sees me leaving and approaches the door and opens it. At this point I see a woman appear behind him who was very naked and very much not his wife.
My friend’s dad panicked and just stares at me. I panic too and ask if his son, my friend, is home. He awkwardly said “no, he’s not here” and decides that now might be a good time to finally cover his nakedness. I don’t say anything else and just turn to leave, at which point my friend’s dad just blurts out “don’t leave!” I look back, shocked and confused. He hurriedly leaves the room for a few seconds, while I’m forced to say a very awkward hello to the naked lady standing in my friend’s house. The dad comes back and hands me a fist full of cash and says “don’t tell anyone” or words to that affect. At the time I didn’t comprehend why he was giving me money, so I refused it and just walked back home.
It wasn’t until years later that I fully comprehended what I had witnessed and why my friend’s mother kicked their dad out of the house soon after that.
25. Those are some terrible parents.
When I was 13ish, I went in to our computer room just in time to finish seeing my dad send an email that said “I love you” and some other stuff to a woman that wasn’t my mom. He tried to cover my eyes and act like he was joking around.
I promptly left and went back awhile later. I tried getting in his email but he had changed the password. (We all knew it because his email was used to log in to a lot of stuff by the family) I never told my mom.
Few years later, he divorced my mom and she asked me for help getting proof of him cheating from the laptop he had also used. I found GRAPHIC Craigslist messages that he had sent and received.
Just gonna add a PSA here to parents – don’t f**king ask your child to do this. Take it to a god damn PC shop and save your child the emotional and mental scars.
Great, now I can’t forget them either!
Tell us one of these moments for you, if you want.
