Isn't it fabulous when you strike up meaningful and enriching conversations with people?


Stimulating conversations can change your perspective on the world and society. The person with whom you're engaged in the exciting discourse can leave an indelible impression.

On the flip side, some of the things people say can come from left field and leave you trembling in fear.

Curious to hear about some of the more unpleasant paths a conversation has gone Redditor Lonely_Bison6484 asked:
"What is the creepiest thing someone has told you?"

These people had conversations that morphed into true crime territory.

Dead Prostitutes

"I used to have this guy come into my work and we would talk about aquariums. He used to live in a city not too far from where we were at. The last time that I spoke with him, he was telling me about how sex workers used to end up dead and they were found by the river. He seemed really excited about it as well. I didn't say anything and I didn't see him again."

Ominous Cab Ride

"Got in a taxi once just outside Sainsbury's, as we were leaving the car park he told me about this young woman who went missing the night before and how she was last seen in his taxi… I did not like that."

The Golf Group

"I knew a guy in business who was in a golf group with OJ Simpson a couple months before the murders. Said he couldn't stop talking about how much he loved his wife and was looking forward to getting back together with her soon."

Creepy Kid

"In kindergarten some kid was digging a hole with a plastic shovel. I asked him what he was digging, and he looked me dead in the eye and said, 'your grave.' Freaked me the hell out at the time."

Patients say the darnedest things.

Tall Man

"I used to work evenings in an Alzheimer's/dementia home, and had become good friends with one man. He once told me, 'I like when you talk to me, but I don't like the tall man behind you.'"

"I know it was probably a hallucination, but that's a no."

The Guardian Angel

"That she had a guardian angel that helped her out. Like when she disliked someone and he had a lethal accident at work because she ordered it."

"The woman was severely psychotic and this scared the crap out of 12 year old me."

Obscure Opinions People Are Fully Committing To | George Takei’s Oh Myyy

We all have a set of beliefs about even the smallest of topics. Like sandwiches should have structural integrity. That's something we can all agree on, right...

The Psych Patient

"I worked as a psychiatric tech for outpatient community based clients and had a patient have a psychotic break and told me that he wanted to 'cut off my arms legs and head and watch me rot in hell' and 'there are bugs crawling on you' and while brushing my upper thigh. He was a foot taller than me and twice my weight. The scariest part was the er staff telling me he was released because he wasn't a threat to himself or others THAT NIGHT."

The Puppet Master

"I was in a hospital for several days and I had made friends with an old woman in the room down the hall from me. She told me she grew up in Jamaica. (We were in the US) She also told me she was a witch. I was 21 at the time, and didn't know much about witchcraft other than movies, I think I said something like 'Oh cool, really?'"

"She said 'watch I'll show you.' Now this is where it gets creepy. We were on one of the upper floors of the hospital sitting by a window that overlooked an intersection below. There was a man walking down the sidewalk along the road."

"She said, 'See that man?' I said, 'Yeah?' She held her hand out in front of her and said 'Oops, you forgot something.' The man, who was walking a pretty fast stride stopped dead in his tracks and started patting his pockets."

"Then after a few moments she said 'Alright now off you go.' And flicked her hand and the man stopped searching his pockets and just started off walking again as fast as he had before."

"It left me speechless and really freaked me out."

We need to protect animals from these suspicious individuals.

Dog Hater

"When I was in 5th grade, my older brother sent me to the convenience store to buy milk. A random adult man with shoulder length, stringy straight hair started walking beside me and asking me questions about myself...what grade I was in, what I was up to, etc."

"We passed by a yard with a dog. The dog ran up to the fence, growling and barking we shied away and, once we were past the yard, the man looked me in the eye and said:"

"I could have killed that dog. I know how to rip its heart out with my bare hands."

I was a high school freshman being dropped off by a friend who just got his driver's license when I heard the creepiest thing.

My friend told me he was a vampire. He was into Anne Rice and all things goth, and I totally believed him when he said that if ever I was to reveal his identity and repeat what he just told me, he would "find me."

I was extremely gullible then, but now as I'm typing this out, I fear he might be watching me.

Friends, it's been a real gas writing for you.

Growing up, I had zero idea that the food I ate daily was "cultural."

It didn't occur to me until I was a kid when my mother had to gently explain to me that not everyone ate rice & beans.

She had to explain it because we were about to eat at a white friend's house for the first time.

People Share The Best Ways To Politely End A Conversation

Have you ever been caught in a conversation you didn't want to be in? Or start talking to someone only to realize you want to stop? Perhaps you were talking to a friend when the conversation took a turn for the uncomfortable.

Whatever the case, we've all been in those situations where we want the conversation to stop, but don't want to be rude.

When I was in third grade, I asked if I voted on American Idol that week. I said yes, since everyone seemed to, but of course I didn't know what American Idol was. Being pop culture challenged, I thought it was a ship. Needless to say everyone was confused when I was asked who I voted for and I replied, "What do you mean? I voted for American Idol!"

It didn't take me long to realize something was amiss, and I probably would've very rudely excused myself from the conversation (fueled by my embarrassment) if my teacher hadn't called us to attention at that very moment.

Luckily, the people of Reddit were willing to share their methods to politely end a conversation when Redditor Spritti33asked:

"How does someone politely end a conversation with a person who won't stop talking?"
