We all carry a secret–whether it's a scandalous one that could cause irreparable damage or one that is extremely embarrassing, it's better to take it to the grave than to live life through endless mockery.

But no matter how enigmatic we are, some of our best-kept secrets can escape us, or someone may think they know a person has been up to misdeeds.

Redditor Sheeppower4 had a hypothetical scenario and asked:

"A person comes up to you and says: 'I know what you did'. What’s the first thing that comes to mind?"

Some people resorted to humor for their responses.

A Wisecrack

"Then you weren’t as drunk as me."

Shroomtune

When Memory Fails

"F'k what did I forget now?"

– ForgottenForce

The Stash

"The hoard of granola bars under my desk in a shopping bag I've been slowly building up."

– ReverendLoveboy

Busted

"Sh*t, they know about the cheese heist."

– Blocko_tritaco

Some would be left scratching their heads.

Huh???

"Confusion."

– Ccaster0620

"Very much confusion, because I haven't done anything scandalous."

"I go to work and I go home. Sometimes I go to the grocery store."

"I wish I wasn't quite a goody two shoes, but here I am. Boring. So what did I do? I have no idea."

– brokendowndryer

Second-Guessing

"I would also be confused. But worried too because what if I did something unintentionally?"

– bunnyrut

Elaborate, Please

"Right? Which terrible thing are you referring to? That thing yesterday with the mess? Last week and the shovel? The tarps and ropes in January?"

"Please be more specific."

– hippocratical

Frame Of Reference

"Ominous undertones aside, I feel like this would probably be my response regardless. Most people have done plenty of things in their lifetime... good, bad, and everything between. If you don't specify which thing you're referring to, I'm not really going to have a frame of reference of where the conversation is going."

– ReggieLeBeau

Some turned the hypothetical confrontation into a challenge.

And?

"But can you prove it?"

oilfeather

Perspective

"It's not about what you know, it's about what can you prove in court."

– GraceChamber

Blow Their Cover

"They're lying. It took a lot of time and effort to cover my tracks, no way that anyone knows about it."

– Chucks_u_Farley

Two Can Play This Game

"I would say, 'Me too.'"

"And stare at them not speaking any more."

– Oriumpor

If you're an open book with nothing to hide, hats off to you.

It must be nice walking around as someone who possesses no ounce of guilt, whatsoever.

But I can detect there's something lurking behind that confident smug.

'Fess up, buddy. I know what you did.

Why not relieve some of that burden bearing down on your shoulders and come clean? I won't tell...

Now, what's your response?

People Divulge Which Brands They Absolutely Swear By

Don't be alarmed: There are some terrible corporations out there (looking at you, Nestle) but there are also some great brands that are selling decent products.

I know, surprising, right? Maybe we've all just gotten used to brands selling things of questionable quality that when we stumble across something worthwhile it stuns us.

Hold on tight when you find a brand deserving of your loyalty!

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor spwf asked the online community,

"What brand(s) do you swear by and why?"

You know what would be great?

If society could just stop with arbitrary dress codes. If you're not working with the public, why should you have to dress up so much? If you're a police officer, then it makes sense that you'd wear a uniform that identifies you as a police officer. If you're Ted from IT who sits in the backroom all day, I really don't see why you have to come in every day in a suit and tie.

Let's just toss them out, shall we?

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor Levels2ThisBrush asked the online community,

"What should be socially acceptable but isn't?"

People Share Their Best 'F**k This, I'm Outta Here' Experiences

As much as many of us don't like to disrupt the status quo, there is only so much time a person can tolerate a miserable situation before things become so unbearable that they ultimately have to peace out.

For some people, it takes a while for them to reach a breaking point. Eventually, there comes a time when they realize their self-worth is more important than continuing to please others who don't appreciate them for the sake of keeping up with appearances.

As we enter into the summer months, people now have to decide whether or not they want their morning coffee to be hot or iced.

Lucky for them, it's delicious either way.

One could make an argument that foods that are equally delicious hot or cold are perhaps the best, or at least the most reliable.

And this can include foods which are not customarily sold both hot and cold (cold pizza anyone?).

Redditor NectarineOther4989 was curious to hear which foods people enjoy either hot or cold, leading them to ask:

"What is something that tastes good both hot and cold?"
