Every house has its own set of rules, of which you must abide by when you enter. Still, it's pretty much agreeable by everyone it's probably not best to use someone's refrigerator as a toilet.

...

You'd think that wouldn't need to be said, but as it turns out, yes, yes it does.


Reddit user, u/aug66matt, wanted you to share the slippiest-of-ups when they asked;

What is a f-ck up you did in other people's homes, but didn't tell the person?

As a drunk teen I puked in a kitchen sink and couldn't get it to go down plug, So I filled sink with plates (clean from cupboard) and then left it.

Then I joined in the "oh that is disgusting who would do that?" conversation at school.

Do The Best You Can With What You Have

When my brother was 13, he had chilli dogs for the first time at a friend's sleepover and they upset his stomach in the night. He held on until he thought everyone was asleep and went to toilet and sh@t his guts out. Problem. No toilet paper. However, there was a basket of face flannels so he decided he'd do his best with one of those.

Showing a wisdom beyond his tender years, he knew it was best not to try and flush a flannel down the toilet so he shoved it out of the window and went back to bed.

In the morning, the flannel was discovered stuck sh-tside down on the glass roof of the conservatory, where everyone was gathered for breakfast. I don't think he ever owned up.

An Alarm Clock

While they were busy in the kitchen getting dinner ready, I sat down at their grand piano to play a little.

With the first chord I struck, their cat leaped from the inside of the instrument and ran off down the hallway. (Apparently, the inside of the piano is their cat's "secret place" for sleeping!)

A Bath for The Ages

My mom did this as a teen... she went over to a big party in a trailer (that's where the host lives) and she went to the bathroom and broke the toilet flusher and the toilet wouldn't stop flushing and my mom ended up flooding the whole trailer

That's Gonna Make The Next Holiday Really Awkward

Took my cousins birthday gift to go out and play with it (some sort of toy that you spin and it flies for a bit) and it got stuck in a tree. Couldn't get it down.

Lucky for me, the package came with two of them, and it was some cheap-ass toy so it's not that horrible. Now what is horrible is that I was 17 at the time and my cousins were 4. I played with, and lost a 4 year old's toy at 17.

At Least You Learned Your Lesson?

Mistook a laundry hamper for a trash can. Threw a tampon in it.

Realized my mistake when I was over there again a week later.

Video Game Party Foul

Once I was at my friends house (not friends anymore) we where playing Super Smash Bros on the Wii and he went to go take a dump. I kept playing. The Wii went into an error screen, he had the Wii for years.

So I thought, why don't I reset it?

I reset all the data, by turning it on, and putting it to factory settings, I was 9 at the time so I had no idea what I was doing. It was a major f-ck up, he had a lot of saved data on that Wii.

But...Why?

Years ago my cousin and her husband had bought a new house and spent over a year renovating the whole house.

They decided to do the kitchen last as it wasn't that bad, the kitchen had just been finished in time for them to go on holiday.

So her younger brother(at the time he was in his late twenties) was asked to house sit while they were away, as some appliance had not been received and the kitchen fitters were coming back.

My cousin phoned her brother to see if it had arrived and he said "yeah enjoy your holiday".

Between this phone-call and them coming back from holiday my cousins brother had washed some clothes and needed to dry his jeans, so instead on using the nice new tumble dryer he decided to use the microwave.

The nice new kitchen was reduced to a burnt wreck, as after he popped them in the microwave he went to the shop, and came back to the kitchen on fire.

I asked him why he put them in the microwave?

He replied " I needed them to dry quick"

Still to this day don't know if he is genuinely that stupid or if this is his attempt at making light of his f-up.

...Good Lord.

I sh-t myself in my sleep. Never done it before, never done it again, but on this particular night when I was sleeping on a sofa-bed that's what happened. I got up, went to the toilet, cleaned myself up and wrapped up my sh-tty underwear in a plastic bag.

I couldn't get outside without waking everyone up so I stuffed the bag under the bed and went back to sleep. When I woke back up everyone was downstairs making operation: extraction impossible.

I left to go and get some lunch so that by the time I got back they would be out of the way.

So I got back to the house and lifted up the sofa... it was gone.

What is in the water in the United States that compels people to walk around in their homes with their shoes on? Try doing that in South Korea––people would be so mortified. I have a sibling whose apartment is carpeted from wall to wall and who walks around inside with his shoes on all the time, tracking in any manner of dirt and dust from outside. Egad! I get chills just thinking about it. And as an American, it's something I've noticed people from other countries love to comment on.

We learned a lot more about things that are considered normal in other countries after Redditor monitonik asked the online community,

"What's normal in your country that's considered weird in others?"

The brain a fascinating part of the body. No, its the most fascinating.

Scientists have said for years that we'll never know all about the brain and its functions.

So if it is so fascinating and so capable and awesome... why does it stall? Why does it overload?

Why aren't we all gifted with photographic memory? The brain definitely has a full storage issue. And we all suffer.

Redditor u/MABAMA45 wanted everyone to fess up to and just embrace all the things the brain can't handle by asking:

What can your brain just not comprehend?

Going to college is an exciting experience. You meet new people, learn about the world and the inner workings of society, and make lasting friendships. As fun (and expensive *cough, cough*) as higher education can be there is a reason that only one-third of the US population 25 and older have been able to complete a four-year degree program. It is hard and burnout is real.

Going through university was filled with both happiness and sometimes tears for me. I loved school and found my classes interesting, dove into extracurriculars, and had that perfectionist drive to get all A's... totally not sustainable. It hit me I was totally burnt out about two years in while enrolled in an algebra class.
