We've all been there. A conversation is going fine and suddenly you're thrust onto a runaway train. And the train is really gross and horrifying.

I don't exactly know what is going through people's minds when these moments of hyper-honesty occur. Maybe you have a face that just screams trustworthy. Maybe you're simply unlucky enough to pass through a person's life at the exact moment when they absolutely cannot go another second without getting this weird thing off their chest.

Either way, these people and these moments aren't going away anytime soon. Best thing we can do is read about when others have been thrown the TMI hot potato and hope that at least yours wasn't THAT bad.

u/ijustwantedtoparty asked, "What weird thing did somebody tell you that they shouldn't have felt so comfortable telling you?"

Ya Know I Was Curious About That

I see my mechanic a like 5 times a year and he always tells me how many asian girls he met online and had sex with since we last met. Its like an unprompted tradition he must get past before we can talk about what's wrong with the car.


Gotta Be A Better Way to Do That

Dude pays me at work. Then tells me he can't cum. He can have an orgasm, but then needs to use a "straw" to get it all out.


Where it All Went Down

I was going to a summer cottage owned by my work. Upon hearing that, a coworker of mine informed me that his daughter was conceived there, in the very bed that I was about to sleep in.

Did not need to know that,

at all.


Don't Make Em Like They Used To

My 89 year old grandfather told me his and his wife's favourite sexual position. Number 1 on the list of things I never ever needed to know.



What a Compliment

Sitting with my fiancé's new friend and she starts bragging to me how she's been manipulating men including my fiancé into doing things for her. (Picking up her paychecks for her, babysitting her son while she goes on a date, cleaning her place for her etc) Then she started showing me these long messages she'd send to guys she had just met on dating sites telling them how my fiancé was her best friend and her standard for guys.


Maybe Try Plan B

That he considers paying a hooker to lose his virginity. It was back when I worked in retail, and he was a co-worker. We didn't talk much, only a couple of words, and only about work. Then one day he came to me, and dropped this bomb.

At first at though he was joking, and tried to laugh it off, but he was dead serious. He also wanted to hear my opinion, but I told him that this was not a comfortable conversation for me.

Later another co-worker told me he tries to talk about this to all female workers, and he hopes that one of us would offer him to take his virginity, so he doesn't have to pay.


All These People Talking About Incest Like It's Chill

An ex-coworker, whom I barely knew, told me she was in a sexual relationship with her biological father.

They had been together for about 10 years, and moved to a new city together. She was only 25 or so.

I politely smiled, switched topics, and went home shortly afterwards.

Of course I kept that story to myself, but damn.


A kid I was sort of friends with in high school told me that he regularly had sex with his twin brother.

For the record, he had no history of ever being sexually abused, and from what he talked about, it was mutually suggested between the two.

They were just gay and into incest.




Managed a restaurant and a man was there to service the building, HVAC or something. He seems anxious and starts rattling on about his girlfriend and then her brother and how said brother fu*ked a cow... immediately apologizes, "I don't know why I said that, I probably shouldn't have told you that, sorry."


Takes Commitment. Proud of You, Sis.

My sister told me she was getting her tonsils out, so that she would give better head.


Time to Review the Policies

A (strange) coworker, whom I wasn't ever close with, decided to tell me at work - across the entire office - that she and her husband were having marital problems due to lack of sex. He wanted more sex. But since she wasn't trying to get pregnant, she didn't see the point and said he needed to get over it.

This happened loudly, out of nowhere and with no prompting. What made it more uncomfortable was that she was our HR person.



Blue Collar, Yellow Collar

Working on a assembly line, a girl I had to work next to that day explained to me why part of her shirt was yellow and wrinkled. The yellow part was cat pee, it's wrinkled cause she sleeps in it. And hasn't done laundry in 2 week's...yes she smelled and yes I told her she did.



Gotta Be Against Some Policies

Next girl working with me confessed that she slept with 50 people at work. Married, has 3 kids, not sure if kid #2 and #3 is her husbands. Then told me not to tell anyone, I barely knew her, but I'm sure people all ready knew this about her. There were less than 300 people working at this plant, that's including 2 shift's.


Work Trip!

business partner of my then boss, that had just introduced himself to me:

nice team you've got here. we should all go on a trip to thailand together. you can fuck prostitutes without protection over there! they all have documents from their doctors showing that they're clean!


Letting it Flow

Cashier at St. Louis Bread Co. informing me she's on her period and flowing very heavily. I get it, I'm a fellow woman, but damn. Its a restaurant.


Getting Off His **Chest**

My coworker told me that he has had flare ups of gonorrhea over 30 times, he has herpes, and god knows what else. He said he can't remember how many times he's had a q-tip swab in his d*ck hole. He doesn't believe me that I've never had an std and is constantly bringing it up. I don't know what compels this man to constantly talk about STD's but he must have a forest fire going on down there.


Segues Are Overrated Anyway

Me, sits down for my lunch break at work. Random coworker comes and sits down and says to me, "so ive been watching cartoon monster porn".



A Devoted Marriage

My coworker went into great detail (including a hand drawn diagram) about how constipated she was after one of her c-sections. She said she was so uncomfortable that she asked her husband to try to dig some of the poo out of her butt with his finger. So she put a towel down on the bed, laid on her side, and he got to work. After some successful digging she rolled over and noticed a butter knife on the bedside table and asked what it was doing there to which he responded "well, it was too hard for my fingers".

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
