Everyone has experiences that they wish they could forget, and definitely would never want to go through again.


Once, when I was in middle school, my pants ripped in two after falling down the stairs. It was both painful and embarrassing, and now I am always extra careful when I go up the stairs.

Redditor u/jnhdavid got people to talk about their lowest moments by asking… What's an experience you don't ever want to go through again?

10. Kidney stones are no joke. 

"Kidney stones. Took me 6 days from when the discomfort into pain started but felt like 6 years. The pain was causing me to nauseated which doesn't mix well with pain killers. Ultimately had to get admitted and passed them the night before I was to have surgery."

9. Post-appendectomy bathroom breaks are horrific.

"I hated having to figure out how to poop and pee again for the two weeks after surgery because I felt like was going to tear out my internal and external stitches."

"All of this. I didn't sh!t for a week out of fear."

8. Public bathrooms are bad enough.

"This summer my group ate something very bad before taking a night train that was leading us to take the airplane home. 10 out of 16 we were had bad diarrhea/vomit. Fun was not had. We felt like dying."

7. Pooping in public sucks.

"In my first grade I shat in my pants and I didn't even have an underwear. To spice that up there was a fire drill in which I had to stand without shorts among the whole school. Most Embarrassing moment of my life"

6. Nothing like the movies.

"Being stuck in a mental hospital. It's not like in the movies but it's the feeling of being so close to freedom yet so far away."

5. I can't help but agree.

"The entirety of middle school. No thanks."

4. Colon health is important.

"Colonoscopy. The surgery itself isn't that bad, it's the prep that sucks"

3. Heartbreak is never easy.

"I was in a relationship for almost 3 years. I know it wasn't perfect and we had some issues but overall she made me really happy and I thought what we had was so special. Then just one days she says she wants to break up without giving me much more reason than "it's best for her". It really does make you feel abandoned, and since she was pretty nice about it I feel like the only person I can blame is myself. 3 months into the process and it's not been a fun time."

2. Anywhere but Boston!

"Driving in Boston.

I swear, they designed their roads with purposeful malice."

1. The miracle of life.

"Watching my wife have a C-section.

Twice is enough."

Fam. Weighted blankets.

If you (or your kids - I see you, exhausted parents) struggle to stay asleep at night, weighted blankets might be a game changer for you. We got one for our 1-year-old after a week of her waking up at 4AM for baby jam sessions.

Best $31.99 we have ever spent. Ever.

As kids, we spent about 8 hours every day in school for 10 months of each year. Not surprisingly, a few useless lessons made their way into the curriculum.

Well, maybe more than a few.

Kids say some seriously whacky stuff sometimes, it can be disturbing, especially when they tend to discuss people who are not there. When the imagination is heading into "The Sixth Sense" territory, it may be time for a visit to the therapist. Now almost all of us had imaginary friends at one point in life. It is a very normal, common part of childhood. But much like the real friends in corporeal form we make in life, sometimes certain relationships are toxic and not a good influence. And separation is called for.

Redditor u/xX_ENTROPY_Xx wanted to hear about people's children's besties that they haven't laid eyes on by asking..... What's the scariest story you heard a child tell about their "imaginary friend"?

Be careful what you wish for, you just may get it. That is one of the wisdoms of life that people are always throwing around. It can be especially true when meeting your idols, finding your dream job and searching down blood relatives you knew nothing about. The DNA discovery craze has been all the rage the past decade or so. Everyone is running around contacting family they never knew they had. That can be quite the Pandora's box of family secrets and scandal.The outcomes have been all over the place. Though one of the best led to the discovery of the Golden State killer so that's a win.

Redditor u/VideoFork wanted to know who would be willing to give up some salacious tea about their blood tie discoveries by asking..... People who have taken an ancestry DNA test and accidentally uncovered a family secret, what was it?
