I've always said, if you're gonna cheat, then please just break up.

Having sex with other people is not the problem... lying is.

If you're cheating, you're lying.

There is no excuse, it's just selfish behavior.

But people sure can get creative with their reasons.

So this should be good...

Redditor Shinfekta wanted to break down all the reasons people may have to step out on a partner.

So they asked:

"What’s the worst excuse for cheating?"

I mean... go ahead... try and explain. This should be as good as the dog ate my homework.

“'You aren’t exactly my type.' -Actual quote after 3 years of living together."


"A bit late to recognize that huh? What an ass, sorry you had to go through that."


Oh Lord...

"I’ll never forget my first semester in college I met a girl in psychology 101 that shared with the whole class that her boyfriend cheated on her. She said she was going to forgive him because his reason for cheating was because he had never slept with a black girl before and wanted to know what it was like."



"Came home early from work to my last EX in bed with another gu 'I wasn’t trying to hurt you I didn’t think you would find out I came home early because I spilled a frier on my leg and she ignored my call for a ride because she was busy being f**ked. I’m still mad when I think about it."

"'She's your twin... does it really count as cheating?'"


"I dated a girl with an identical twin. One night I came up behind her, wrapped my arms around her, and planted a gentle kiss on her neck. Normally she liked that a lot, but this time she said, 'What the f**k are you doing?' It was her twin. So embarrassed lol. Luckily they both saw the funny side because it's happened before."

'"It just happened.'"


"'The storm was so strong it shredded our clothes off and we had to hold on tight to not fly off, I guess a gust of wind pushed my penis into her.'"


The scandal of it ALL!!

For U!

“'You’re too nice. I’m doing you a favor.'"



"I deserved to have sex with a hot guy. It was tough to hear. I didn't think I looked that bad. But it messed with my self-image pretty badly. I had problems with body dysmorphia before I even met her. But between that and a few other comments she made, it came back pretty hard. Most days I do pretty well now though."



"The lights were off, I couldn’t see."


"I actually know a guy whose wife used this excuse."


Phil it UP!

"One that I heard from a former marriage counselor was a woman who claimed her husband was so affectionate, hard-working, and considerate, she developed an inferiority complex and dealt with it by cheating."


"I saw something like that on Dr Phil. This woman was saying how her partner doted on her, did all the dishes, did everything for her. It was disgusting to her how much he loved her, so she felt the need to cheat on him."

"I thought about you the whole time."


"Never understood that one. It makes it worse surely."


Sometimes you just need to be single.

What are some of the craziest examples you've ever heard? Let us know in the comments below.

The amount of shows that have aired in the history of television is a lengthy one, and the ones we know of are the ones that have been picked up by the networks.

There are tons of other ideas that have been pitched that have not seen the light of day and some that have been produced and presented as pilot episodes but eventually scrapped due to a variety of reasons.

There are few feelings more frustrating and disappointing than realizing that a job simply isn't a good fit.

To some people, a job is a job, so they'll force themselves to go to work to earn the paycheck until a better job comes along.

Others however will come to the decision that the pay, be it big or small, simply isn't worth the monotonous, soul-sucking, or downright toxic atmosphere they need to report to, and quit with no prospects in sight.

Most people do this after a few months, or even a year, giving ample notice so as not to burn bridges or potentially harm their reputation.

Then there are the extreme cases, who leave the office for the very last time on their very first day, never looking back and not having one ounce of doubt or guilt about their decision.

School can be a dangerous place.

Indeed, with bullying remaining an ongoing problem, some students are afraid to even set foot in school.

Then, of course, there's the terrifying fact that school shootings remain a shockingly common occurrence in the United States.

As a result, it's not only the students who find themselves scared to go to school sometimes but also the teachers.

With the current climate, sometimes when a teacher sees a student behave in even a slightly peculiar manner, they tend to assume the worst.

Thankfully, sometimes their fears are unfounded.

Other times, their fears were heartbreakingly accurate.

When it comes to scientific advancements, it's all about trial and error.

You form a hypothesis, test your hypothesis, and come to a conclusion.

Testing your hypothesis is known as an experiment. Sometimes, experiments are completely safe and ethical, like the tests Isaac Newton ran as he discovered the Laws of Motion. However, sometimes, the experiments were horrific. The subjects used were treated cruelly, and the effects lasted a lifetime, or even longer.

Science, in and of itself, is great, but sometimes, people have committed some horrible atrocities in the name of science that we just can't get behind.

One thing I learned is that I know a lot less about the way scientists went about their research than I thought I did. Luckily for me and the rest of the uninformed, Redditors are ready to share the atrocities people have done in the name of science.
