#1 The Toilet Paper Trickster
“All throughout middle school, there was someone who tucked unwrapped Hostess Devil Dogs into the toilet paper dispensers in the bathrooms, so that when you pulled some toilet paper out, the devil dog would fall out into your hand. We had to have an assembly about it. That person… Was me.”
In the annals of school pranks, this tale of hiding Devil Dogs in toilet paper dispensers reaches legendary status. The fact that the confession came from the actual prankster is a delicious twist. It’s a testament to how youthful mischief can create unforgettable memories, even if they do involve sweet treats in the restroom.
#2 Escape Room Escape Gone Wrong
“Was drunk at an escape room with coworkers. It was an extreme one where you are handcuffed the entire time. I decided in my drunken state that it would be bad*** to dislocate my thumb and slip off the cuffs like in the movies. It wasn’t. We got kicked out, my coworkers were weirded out and I had to go to the hospital. I quit a few weeks later. The white collar wasn’t for me.”
What happens when you combine alcohol, an escape room, and an attempt to outwit the handcuffs? Well, you get a memorable escape, just not the kind you’d expect. This confession is a reminder that sometimes, fiction doesn’t translate smoothly into reality, especially when your grand escape plan involves a dislocated thumb.
#3 The Divine Heist of Communion Wafers
“Stole over 1,000 wafers from church because I really liked the communion wafers & didn’t know where else to get them. I felt really blessed & cursed for a long time.”
Church confession time takes an unexpected turn with this heist of biblical proportions. It’s hard to resist the allure of communion wafers, but going for over 1,000 of them takes devotion to a whole new level. Blessing or curse, this confessor’s “holy” escapade certainly adds a unique twist to the concept of snacking in church.
#4 The Case of the Mysterious Pursuer
“Once I got off the subway in NYC and I was super early for an appointment. So I picked a random guy and just followed him on foot for like 30 minutes, pretending I was like a private detective or something. Always kept about a half block behind. He turned this way and that, and eventually went into a building I had lived in 9 years earlier. It was weird, and so was I.”
Ever felt like playing detective in the bustling streets of New York City? Well, this user took their idle curiosity to new heights. The outcome, while eccentric, showcases the unpredictability and intrigue the city has to offer. As they say, the concrete jungle has a knack for stirring up adventure, even when you’re just following a stranger.
#5 A Bizarre Farewell Kiss
“I found a motionless rat in a field when I was younger and kissed it because I wanted to say goodbye.”
Kissing a rat is the sort of thing that could only make sense to a child’s mind. The confession is a charming reminder of the innocence and curious nature of youth. Farewells come in all forms, but a rat smooch surely ranks as one of the quirkiest.
#6 The Curious Playground Investigator
“When I was around 7 I was pretty intrigued in what a guy’s parts looked like so I collected a group of guys of my age behind a tree in a school playground and asked each one of them to show it to me.”
Ah, childhood curiosity – it can lead to the most unexpected adventures. In this case, a budding anthropologist decided to delve into a mystery that intrigued them. Though it might have raised some eyebrows, it’s a testament to the fascination children have with discovering their bodies and surroundings, further reinforcing the need for open-mindedness and supportive guidance from parents. Encouraging exploration in a safe and nurturing environment is essential.
#7 Role-Play Shenanigans
“I would do role-play chats in these online browser games when I was in my teens. They’d ALWAYS turn sexual but because I was so innocent at the time, I didn’t know how to continue, so I’d just… run away and block them.”
While lighthearted in the user’s memory, this comment reinforces how important it is to teach children about the dangers of interacting with strangers online. Thankfully, this person ‘ran away,’ but online safety education is no joke.
#8 The Coyote Whisperer
“I was extremely socially isolated as a child and tried to make friends with the coyotes who lived in the woods by our home. I caught one in a snare and fed and kept her. I wanted a friend.”
Childhood loneliness can lead to extraordinary situations. In this case, the desire for a friend led to an unlikely alliance with a coyote. The story is a fascinating look into the imaginative world of a child seeking companionship. This story could’ve easily taken a dangerous turn, but thankfully, the user survived to tell the tale.
#9 The Cat-Mastered Human
“My cat has trained me to give her rides around the house by jumping on my shoulder. I walk her over to the peephole of the door, and she looks out it (at it really). There is a dangling elephant thing with a bell that my wife has as decoration, she looks at and sniffs it. I walk her to the back door to take a look for a minute (it’s glass). Then I drop her off at her cat scratching post and she jumps off. She purrs like a freak the entire time. It’s adorable.”
Cats can be incredibly persuasive, as this tale proves. The confessor’s whimsical journey, guided by their feline friend, is a delightful reminder of the captivating spell pets can cast. In the grand dance of human-pet relationships, sometimes it’s the pet that takes the lead, and we follow willingly.
#10 Compulsive Note-Taking
“Started compulsively keeping track of things in notes: books I’d read, outfits I’d worn, legs of flights I’d taken. I was trying to space out my hair washing so I even started tracking that on a calendar and ended up tracking it for 7 years straight.”
When tracking habits take on a life of its own, it can lead to impressive collections of data. In this case, the confessor’s seven-year calendar of hair-washing records stands as a testament to dedication and an obsession with routine. Sometimes, it’s the most mundane aspects of life that take center stage in our peculiar narratives.
#11 A Tree Encounter
“Drove my car into a tree, with no seat belt, trying to un-alive myself, failed, and ended up with a badly broken right arm and left hip. Everyone in my family thinks it was some accident and I’ve been too embarrassed to admit it wasn’t.”
Not all confessions are lighthearted, as this one illustrates. The story serves as a poignant reminder of the emotional struggles many people face. The confessor’s reluctance to share their true experience highlights the importance of mental health and open conversations. It’s a stark contrast to the more eccentric stories in this collection, serving as a sobering reality check in the midst of quirkiness.
