We all have that inner voice, that small and most auspicious person that knows when we as a whole are about to head into some hazardous situation. Most of the time we tend to ignore that voice. Those signals trigger our greatest asset, our gut instinct. Which is connected to that voice. Listen closely, it can save your life.
Redditor u/OddAmbassador4 wanted everyone to share.... When has your gut instinct saved your life, or helped you avoid something horrible?
Quite literally a gut feeling actually. I was on the bus commuting to my university and began to feel extremely bloated. So I decided to get off. Turns out it was a (relatively) good move, because as soon as I got off the bus I began furiously crapping myself. And I mean like full on butt blasting diarrhea. Of course it didn't really help me avoid crapping myself but it helped me not embarrass myself by turning the bus into an butt bomb that day. _Twas_Ere_
Never talk to Strangers....
I was about 11, and this neighborhood man started kind of hanging around my friends and me sometimes. He was friendly and would buy us junk food from 7-11. My little friend crowd was mostly boys and it wasn't unusual for me to be the only girl with them. This man started inviting them over for snacks, would give them money for 7-11, etc, and they thought he was the greatest thing. I got a creepy feel and didn't like how he seemed to look at me more than the boys, so I never went to his house.
Creep started bringing gifts to my house for me until my mom answered the door one day and told him to hit the road and never come back. The next we heard of him was in the newspaper because he was serving time for "interfering with a minor" He sent his victim a Valentine's card from there.
I'm grown up now and I really hope that piece of crap is long dead. I escaped him ruining my childhood, but some other little girl didn't. I think about that sometimes. DogsNotHumans
I pulled up to the corner of Audubon Blvd. and Fountainbleau Drive, a four-way stop. I'm reading towards the river, and I look to my left and right, after coming to a full stop, and see no one. But, instead of going, I like almost heard a voice in my head say, "Stop and take a drink of your drink." I didn't hear a voice, but I felt this oddly strong prompting in my mind's inner dialogue to take a drink of my drink. As I'm reaching down to grab it, a car flies through that intersection going as fast as you possibly could on that street. It would've crashed right into me on my side, and likely killed me or F-ed me and my toddler daughter in the car seat behind me up for good. wuapinmon
When we ran out of screw-in fuses for the fuse box, I was told it was okay to insert a copper penny as a "temporary fix" until some replacement fuses could be purchased.
When I smelled insulation melting on overheated wires in the wall, I knew that the advice I'd been given was wrong and dangerous. So I immediately pull the "main" fuse for the entire house until new screw-in fuses could be bought.
That simple act likely saved burning down the house due to a potential electrical fire. Back2Bach
My ex-girlfriend and I were driving home late at night from a concert. It was about a three hour drive, so it was probably somewhere around 2AM. It was mid-January and was snowing pretty heavily. She was going around 70mph. I don't know why, but I asked her to slow down. She slowed to around 35mph and not a minute or two later we had to slam on our brakes because there was a semi jack-knifed across both lanes. The brakes locked up and we slid through the slush and only stopped about 15 feet short of the trailer. If I hadn't asked her to slow or if she hadn't listened, I would have likely been a head shorter. explodeder
The Dark Knight....
I'd asked for days off to see The Dark Knight in theaters. I had the seniority at my retail job to get the days off and asked 3 weeks in advance for the days. The scheduling manager hated me and didn't give me the days off. I'd really wanted to say screw it and go anyway and just go to work on 4 hours or less of sleep. The say rolled around and my gut instinct told me to just go to bed and to see the movie the next week.
Had I gone that night I would have been in the Aurora theater James Holmes had been in. I'd had 3 friends in the theater that all lived but multiple coworkers lost friends or family. My dad heard the news break when it happened (he worked nights out of his truck and heard it on the radio) and called my mom frantic to check I was in bed and hadn't gone to the theater since he knew I loved Batman and wouldn't shut up about the movie. I'm glad I went to bed. I saw the movie when it was released to DVD. I couldn't bring myself to see it in a theater. gothiclg
So it was during the Easter holidays, me and my family live in a block of flats, I was 10, and we were the last ones to leave so we were all lone in the building. We were going to the garage to get the car and my family all 4 of them took the elevator, I however decided to take the stairs cause I had this fear in the back of my head that I might get stuck in there. And while I was walking down the stairs I hear a voice from the elevator shaft. It was stuck and all my family was in it. Long story short they managed to fill me up with courage and I went out asking strangers for help, me a 10 year old, thankfully a lady helped me and called 911 and were able to get my family out of the elevator. I still take the stairs whenever we are leaving for a family trip. Mike_The_Greek_Guy
Louder and louder....
I was walking home from work one night last week and I could hear footsteps behind me. I was on the phone to my partner at the time like I do when I have to walk home alone at night. The footsteps start getting louder and when I crossed the road I could hear this person running and saw them out of the corner of my eye, seemingly towards me. So I turn around and look right at them which seems to startle them and they ran in front of me and kept walking.
I slow right down at this point and just watch them, describing very loudly to my partner what this man looks like and what he was doing. He was acting very shifty, crossing the road over and over when he didn't need to and constantly looking back at me. I hid behind some bushes and waited for him to go out of sight after that then carried on home. Pretty sure he was planning on mugging/attacking me. I saw him again when I walked home last night but I wasn't alone this time. Still pretty freaked out tbh. Missy_Strange
Not today Satan!Giphy
When I was studying abroad in Nicaragua, on my very first night walking down the main road with my classmates, a man ran past me and ripped my purse off my body. I had it diagonally across my chest so he literally had to rip it yanking me backwards. My first reaction was to lean into the drag to turn myself around and immediately take off chasing this guy. I am a young white female, so he probably didn't expect any resistance. He saw me following him, got startled, and tripped. He threw the purse back in my direction, got up, and ran away.
That purse had my phone, passport, and much of my money in it, I was so glad I got it back. I was also well-respected by my classmates who saw it happen, so that was cool. sexy_toaster
The Poo-Po is watching....
Every once in a while on my dicey commute home from traffic I get a spidey-sense like sensation that I should drive less aggressively and more often than not as soon as I tone it down I pass a cop. Sometimes it's just gas. Metalfriends
Don't Play with health!
I don't usually get sick except between December and January I fall extremely ill, probably flu. I puke and it just kills me. It happened this year but I felt like something was wrong this time and wanted to go to an Urgent Care. They told me I needed to go to the hospital. Turns out on top of the sickness I had large clots in my lungs and leg and spent two weeks in the hospital. ToastedPeanutss
Not as dramatic, but walking to uni I halted at some random point and one second later seagull poop lands right in front of me. Felt blessed at that moment. QuestWithAmbition
When my best friend's mom was young (high school I think) her parents were evangelical Christians who felt called to do all they could to help the less fortunate. They were very active and outgoing in doing this. One day, her sister (my friend's aunt) came across an elderly homeless woman and asked if she needed help. She ended up driving the woman to their home so she could do her laundry. After the homeless woman had done her laundry and went on her way, my friend's aunt's dad (my friend's grandfather) told her not to bring that lady to the house anymore and to not have any more interaction with her. He couldn't explain it but he had a bad feeling about her. The very next week the family saw a story in the newspaper and learned that that same elderly homeless woman had stabbed someone else who was helping her because the voices in her head told her to. cprdvdcrr
One time in Iraq, we were in a convoy going towards a reported HVT (a bomb maker) and en route, the first vehicle took a wild ass left turn down a sand road we didn't even know was there. We asked the lead vehicle what the hell he was doing. He replied "It just didn't feel right." and we were all okay with it.
Don't know why he did it. Maybe there was an IED in the road ahead. But I'm sure glad we took that turn. TheOrangeBanana007
I was away on World Challenge in Nicaragua with my school and I was staying in a room with 4 other girls. One of the girls was sleeping in a bed parallel to these huge french doors. Anyway, I had a dream that one of the doors fell onto this girl and I woke up and sat up and looked at the doors. I noticed that it was leaning slightly and as I watched it started to fall.
I have never moved so fast in my life, but I got across the room basically in one huge bound and caught the door a couple of inches from her face. (She was unhurt, just a bit shocked as to why I was suddenly next to her holding up a door)
I still think about it sometimes. slh259
Pull a U-turn...
Was standing on the side of a highway trying to get my bearings, and noticed a car backing up towards me. Something told me I needed to get the hell away, so I hit the crosswalk button and got the green light right away. I ran across the road and the car pulled a U-turn and started following me, I grabbed the license plate and ran into a nearby hotel. Peaked out the front doors and noticed the car had parked nearby. Called the cops, they came to talk to me, I gave them the info and it turned out they'd been after this guy for a while. w0rstwitch
There was a dodgy bloke outside the block of flats where I stayed down south England. I didn't like the look of him whatsoever, so I stayed where I was and just watched for an hour. This was about a year before mobiles were a thing, so I had no way to call a pal down the phone or owt like that.
Anyway, bloke leaves and I gan on home. Couple of days later one of the prostitutes who lived opposite me told me about the bloke. He'd been arrested on two counts of kidnapping two girls. One for three hours and one for four. He got a few other charges, but it was 22 years ago so the details are fuzzy.
He was proper shifty, though. Arlessa
While on a convoy in the middle east, I got a gut feeling that something was behind me (sole turret gunner on a convoy, before the time of CROWS systems)
I rotated my turret, saw a guy leveling an AK at me in a 2nd floor window and he fired. I returned fire and smoked the guy and his three buddies in the windows next to him. one of the guys had a RPG and i think the guy who fired at me fired prematurely when he saw that i saw him. Didn't give the guy with the rpg enough time to set up his shot before he fired.
Thank God for belt fed weapons and sheer dumb luck. BlackFrost92
Hit the Spot...Giphy
This just happened today. Every Wednesday I have the same errand to run and I always park in this one tiny parking lot in the middle of downtown. Today I thought to myself "no, I really need to park on street somewhere this time." No real reason why. Found a spot even though it was farther away and parked there. When I was done with my errand and going back to my car I passed by the parking lot and it was surrounded by emergency vehicles. Apparently there was a fire. Good thing I didn't park there today. ndhlpplse
No Safety Net....
I had an opportunity to move to the West Coast all expenses paid. It seemed like a great opportunity. I was deep into planning and I said to my wife "you know what, let's wait 6 months and be really sure it's what we want." Four months later, everyone at that site was laid off. I would have been in a new State with no job and no safety net. zerbey
Who else has heard that sage inner voice?
There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.
I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.
Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

We also proceeded to print out multiple pictures of common types of shoe polish he used to ask him if it was "this one or that one". It was hilarious when he identified what one it was based on the picture, he had to go to the OR</li></ul><div><a target="_blank" href="https://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/kuld31/er_doctors_and_nurses_of_reddit_what_is_the/gitqmlm?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3">AirFryersRule</a><a href="https://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/kuld31/er_doctors_and_nurses_of_reddit_what_is_the/gitqmlm?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3" target="_blank"></a></div>
Sounds Like A College Guy Thing To Do<p>Had a university student who ignited a firework in his anus while drunk for the amusement of his buddies.

Apparently she had a habit of buying them, inserting them and then pulling them out, as she really had a thing for going through childbirth, but on this occasion, she hadn't allowed time for it to defrost properly /adequately.</p><p><a href="https://www.reddit.com/user/Mike_OxonFaier/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Mike_OxonFaier</a></p><p><em>Want to "know" more?

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
