Real Life Secrets That People Couldn’t Keep To Themselves Any Longer

“My mother has always wondered why I didn’t have too many friends back in high school. The real reason is a secret I would never want her to know about. It is because growing up, my family was always broke, and I knew that she was struggling financially. So, in order to avoid anyone seeing how we lived, I always refused anytime people from school wanted to do things with me or have get-togethers at my house.”

“To make matters even worse, I decided during my senior year that I did not want to burden my mother by asking for money when I needed to buy things. As a result, I started working as much as I could outside of school. This gave me even less time to make friends. I would never want my mother to find out about this, and I would never want her to feel guilty or blame herself for my lack of social life as a child.” -Reddit user winenotbecauseofrum

“Just got on a flight in London headed to Vegas. Sitting next to my GF, and she wants to show me something she has planned for the trip, so gets out her phone.”

“It opens to the Messages and shows a chat with a guy (I know him) saying how much she is going to miss him and how she doesn’t want to go away with me anyway. The doors close on the plane, and that was a really fun 10-11hrs…” -Reddit user deleted

“Nobody in my family is aware I have made about 6 million from investments and my own businesses. They think I spend too much free time with inner-city youth doing charity work for a low-paying job. That job is my company.”

“I appreciate your comments and the love from them. At one point, I was told that tutoring these kids tend would not do anything, my family said this. Yet all of them have paid it forward with my company. I met people who had dreams, and I chose to invest in them. They pay me back with interest and pay it forward to my company for the next one. We look out for each other.” -Reddit user tiredofyourdrama

“My sisters and I found my mom’s fantasy love letters that she wrote to other men besides my father. I know they were fantasy because she didn’t even know half of them, and some were happily married. They were the saddest things I’ve ever laid eyes on. She wrote about how she wanted to run off with these men and have their babies.”

“She would write them, wad them up, and just throw them wherever. I’m surprised my father never found them. My youngest sister would scream at her, “ARE YOU INSANE, MOTHER!?!” We just thought she was unhappy with my father and never said anything to him about it.” Reddit user deleted

“I won the lottery the day after my 18th birthday. I won’t state how much, but I live in a state where you can claim anonymously. I haven’t told anyone and haven’t made any lifestyle changes.”

“I do have a heck of a retirement fund and investment portfolio. The only reason I bring this up now is people are just starting to put the pieces together. Not sure if I will end up telling my family, but I can’t risk word getting out, as my sister has a huge mouth.” -Reddit user Annonymoususer2345

“I can’t really explain it well, but essentially, I cannot see at night. Ever since I was little, I remember sitting on the front porch at night and not being able to see anything really- very vaguely I could tell where trees were, but other than that, everything just goes black to me.”

“I’ve seen an optometrist (two actually), and neither thinks anything is wrong with my eyes. This being said, I can’t drive at night because all I can see are the headlights of cars, which blur together so badly that I’m unable to distinguish where the vehicles are. I haven’t told anybody except medical professionals the extent of my night blindness— and if anyone sees this / is concerned, I do not drive at night for my protection & the safety of others.” -Reddit user PremiumMoose

“My grandad was a farmer his whole life. Every animal loved him—and I do seriously mean every animal. Every time we would go to a new place, dogs would be mysteriously coming straight to him, or horses would cuddle up with him. He just had a charm with them—or so we thought. This illusion was about to be shattered for us.”

“One day, while cleaning out his closet and digging in his pockets to make sure nothing of value was thrown in the wash, we found grains, bits of dried meats, dog treats, bits of old carrot. Turned out he didn’t have a natural charm with animals at all! The man had simply been secretly bribing animals with food all this time.”

“I seem like a nice and calm person, I never speak loud, I never get mad at anyone.”

“I’m always the middle party in every fight. But deep down, I’m really angry, like punch-a-wall angry, and I’m afraid this anger is ever going to come out in an unhealthy way.” -Reddit user Pulpee

“I worked as a receptionist for a chiropractor. One day, our first appointment came in, so I went in the back to look for him. I walked in on him doing the deed with a co-worker on the table. It was the same table the patients sometimes would lay on face down on. I went back to the front and said, “He’ll be with you in a couple of minutes.” I was disgusted.”

“He was married with two young kids. I didn’t work there long after that.” Reddit user ephendra47

“In my freshman year of high school, I ditched class so much that I flunked the year. I moved to a different town over the summer, and somehow they lost my “permanent record” in the mail. It was the early 90s, so they had computers, but they weren’t integrated between school districts, so it was just a fat folder of paperwork.”

“When the new school realized this, they called me in and asked what classes and grades I had, so I straight up lied my way out of having to retake freshman year.” -Reddit user axnu

“When I ended up in a spelling bee, I quickly realized the girl I was against had put a lot of time and effort into it, whereas I basically just showed up. Plus, she was more on the nerdy side, not a lot going outside of school, and I felt she needed a victory. So I came up with a plan. She missed a word, so I purposefully missed mine to keep her in the competition.”

“This happened a few times. Later, I missed one on purpose to give her the victory. She went on to the state competition. The teacher giving the words threw me a look of disgust, as she knew what I did, but no one else ever found out.” -Reddit user txbuckeye75034

“When I was in college, I had a sugar daddy. My parents are immigrants and were struggling with bills and a bunch of other stuff. They needed help with money, and I needed help with student loans and utility bills. Long story short, I worked at a bar, met this wealthy older man, and he offered to take care of me if I was willing to be his “arm candy.”

“Everything was consensual, and he never pressured me to do anything I didn’t want to do. It also helped that he was fairly attractive. After I finished with college, we parted ways.” -Reddit user Throw-away_Gal

“A co-worker retired, and I inherited one of his reports, which is one of my employer’s Key Performance Metrics. Every two weeks, it would take him an entire eight-hour day to complete. The first week I was able to automate most of it down to one hour. Over the next nearly ten years, I’ve improved it to the point that it runs in less than a minute.”

“I then spend the next eight hours surfing Reddit, watching movies, and just doing whatever I want in my office from home. All this time, I’ve told my boss it takes me eight hours to perform, and sometimes I’ll tack on extra hours because of “technical issues.” No questions asked as long as it’s in his inbox by the end of the day Friday.”

“I was a former Disneyland employee. It was a standard policy that no one dies in the park. Someone could be decapitated, but the ambulance would have to announce the death after leaving the park grounds.”

“Also, the Rivers of America ride was kept dirty to hide the tracks for the large boats. So much so that if 60% of a guest’s body is in with the water, Disney has to send you off to get a tetanus shot.” -Reddit user deleted

“I’ve seen both of my sisters-in-law without their clothes on. The first time, I accidentally walked in on my brother’s wife whilst she was changing. I didn’t realize she was in the room and just walked in. She knows it was me, but, we’ve both just pretended that didn’t happen. The other time, my wife’s sister asked me to fix her laptop as it wasn’t working.”

“It turns out it hadn’t had a system update for nearly four years, and the computer was filled with all kinds of bloatware and malware. Unfortunately, she kept her pretty explicit photos in a prime position in her downloads folder, which I needed to access to install the updates. I returned her laptop in working condition with a new folder named “Private.” -Reddit user UnfinishedThings
