We all have some innocent secrets we keep from our parents. Twitter user Sydney Allenn's is that, back in June, she had her nipples pierced as a birthday gift from her sister. After a trip to the doctor, however, an unexpected chest X-ray awkwardly outed Sydney in front of her mother.

Sydney wasn't expecting her mom to pick up on her new bling:

Since I don't usually have my shirt off I thought it would be a very easy secret to keep.

Apparently, Sydney and the doctor found the situation a lot funnier than her mom:

My mom [sic] saw my piercings as soon as the X-ray popped up and the doctor and I started laughing hysterically.

Sydney's mother had only this to say:

We'll discuss it later.

Twitter users wanted to make sure Sydney was ok.

Twitter had a lot of questions. Did getting the piercings hurt?

It turns out Sydney wasn't the first person to find herself in this situation.

One Twitter user tried his luck...to no avail.

There were also some quick science discussions to be had!

So remember this if you're going to the doctor's office with your mother anytime soon: take out those nipple piercings!

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.
