People Describe The Nastiest Thing They've Ever Done
Hello I'm Nik on Unsplash

We'd like to think we're generally refined, civil-mannered people in most situations.

That, however, doesn't mean we have occasional moments of being undignified.

At least people have the decency to reflect back on their childhood and comprehend that some of their past actions may have been, well, just nasty.

Curious to hear of the things strangers online were embarrassed about, Redditor purplemnem asked:

"What’s the nastiest thing you’ve ever done?"

Sometimes, people never make it to the bathroom. Hey, sh*t happens. And it really did for these unfortunate Redditors.

Brown Bottom

"When I was a kid, I went out with my friend and his father's family. We ate Chinese and after my stomach was hurting. I was the first one outside so I tried to fart and sharted instead. I was about to run to the back of the building to wipe and throw boxers away (it was night time) but they came outside already."

"I didn't know what to do so I got back in the truck. It just happened to be the kind where you open the front to get back door open. I rode all the way home (30mins) with sh*tty pants. They didn't say anything but drove with all windows down. to make it worse, when I got home I had to climb over someone to get out because I was in the middle seat so my a** went right by the daughters face."


Making A Splash

"I wasn't feeling well so I took a nap. I woke up feeling even worse, so I tried going downstairs to tell my wife."

"I was in my boxers and t-shirt."

"At the top of the stairs I puked so hard I fainted, then had explosive diarrhea. I woke up half way down the (carpeted) stairs, slowly sliding down it on a 'waterslide' of my own sh*t and vomit."

The Soiled Seat

"I’m paralyzed from the waist down. One day at work I started farting big time and that made me nervous. Then it suddenly just stopped but the smell followed me around. So I’m cruising around in my wheelchair and I happen to take a peek behind me, down the back of my pants. Sh*t everywhere. Sh*t climbing up my back because my pants are full and the motion of wheeling around was pushing it up my shirt. The backrest has feces all over it and I swear to god it was making this squishy sound as I made my way to see my boss. I just told him I was sick and had to leave immediately because by now it’s really obvious and I want to get the f'k out of there pronto. I put towels all over my van seat but it was not a pleasant ride home."

Escape Hatch Fashion

"Apparently when my dad was in Jr. High, he was running to the bathroom... and didn't make it.. He was wearing those 70s short shorts.. and shook his pant-leg and a big a** turd fell out, and he ran home lmfaoooooo"

"Dad why would you tell me that."

It's easier to blame our potty incidents outside the bathroom on our innocence.

Fountain For The Youth

"When my sister and I were really young, probably around 5, we would use those little dixie cups to drink out of the toilet."

– yendornilloc

A Slippery Slope

"when I was a kid learning to ski i begged my parents to let me go pee before a run but we were already in line for the chairlift. my oldest sister told me 'if you have to pee really bad, that means it’s only a little bit! so just pee!'”

"i trusted her blindly but probably pissed myself for a solid 2 minutes. filled up and flooded my ski boots. my parents were not happy because it was definitely old enough to know better"

– badluckie

Losing Traction

"Not really my fault but in second grade I got a stomach bug, and my parents didn’t want to answer the phone so the stupid nurse sent me back to class. We were at p.e at the time, and I got horribly sick again, just as I finished throwing up a kid had kicked a kickball. The sound it made as it slid through my vom is still with me to this day."

Better To Avoid Bullying

"I pissed my pants behind the water fountain at school in like 4th grade because I was afraid of the mean girls in the bathroom."

– throwawaymeplease45

KIDdy Litter

"I accidentally sh*t my pants outside at some after school program at my school, I decided instead of going inside it’d be better to hide in the tube slide, take the sh*t out of my pants and bury it in the sandbox."

– Prestigious_Pass9599

The Experiment

"When I was about 8, I wanted to see what happened if I took of my pants and ran down the hill while peeing."

"...Such a bad idea."

– shiroboi

Leaving A Token Of Appreciation

"When I was about four years old, I was at a video rental store and shook out a little nugget of a turd that fell down my pant leg and was left by the video games."

– littleallred008

Classroom Poo-Pourri

"In 5th grade I used to shit tiny little turds in my pants, discreetly take out the turd and encapsulate it in my hand, get up to 'blow my nose,' then I would put the turd in the tissue and throw it away in the trash can. Teacher then wonders why the classroom stinks and can't find the source. Why did I do this lmao."

Just because they've grown up, it didn't mean things got any better in the body control department.

Labor Pains

"when i was in high school, i was so constipated, a poop as wide as an egg's length was stuck inside of me. i strained and pushed to no avail, and eventually had to stick a lubed-up finger inside, trying desperately to work my way around this monster and crack a chunk off. no dice. i ended up laying in the bathtub with my legs up in the air, butthole pointed straight at the hot water blasting from the tub faucet, praying that it would be dislodged. eventually enough chunks came off that i was able to poop it out, and it felt like dry, cracked birth."

– robodook

Liquid Disguise

"Pissed myself while I was really drunk and couldn't admit it so poured at my alcohol on myself to make it seem like I'd somehow gotten a bunch of liquid spilled on me. Since I was in a club that plan wasn't working, as you can imagine you can't just acquire that much alcohol for free and quickly, so I ended up trying to get into a sink in the bathroom and ended up getting taken away in an ambulance due to slipping. That sounds a lot less funny when I say it like that actually."

– Haloperi-Doll

Breakfast For Fido

"One morning I was getting ready for work, still naked from just waking up and not feeling to good either. I made the mistake of trusting a fart and small bit of liquid hit the floor, I tried to run to the counter to grab paper towels but before I could react my dog was already lapping it up..."

The Ultimate Sh*t-mus Test

"Sh*t my pants on a third date. Was crawling into bed for sexy time in her dorm. Didn’t realize I was food poisoned but tried to make it to the bathroom down the hall."

"Ended up leaned against the wall, holding my gut, sh**ting all in my pants down into the socks was how much I sh*t myself."

"EDIT: For people asking for Part 2 - By some grace of God, I had left her room wrapped in a blanket cause I had a legendary boner before my stomach became a poisoned sinkhole. So I waddled into the bathroom, trashed all the clothes I was wearing below the waist, and proceeded to empty my entire body into the toilet."

"So I came back to her dorm room huddled under the blanket and was largely incapacitated for the next day. She made me food for the next 24 hours and helped me get clothes."

"Now she is wife. So, advice boys, make sure to sh*t yourself to trigger the latent caring instincts of any potential partner."

So basically, "nastiest" incidents meant dropping a deuce nowhere near a bathroom.

The next time you're uncertain if your next flatulence would expel more than just fumes, make sure you make a run to the nearest restroom.

Otherwise, you might find your experience added here on this Reddit thread.

We love movies.

Movies and entertainment save the world.

But some movies can send you into a messy place.

Some topics are just a lot to handle.

That is why some films, when done right and authentically, are just too real to experience.

No need to watch that again.

When we're kids, being an adult and getting to do whatever we want often seems like the bestest, most awesome thing we could imagine.

But not everything is better as an adult.

Jobs, responsibilities, and that weird back pain you always seem to get when you sit at your desk too long are just part of getting older. A lot of things that were awesome as a kid just don't hit the same as an adult either.

People Break Down The Creepiest Facts They Know

Life is full of mysteries. And while we seem to be cognizant of many of life's miracles, it's obvious there is still much to discover within the vastness of our existence.

Much of the world's known facts are fascinating–some even inspiring.

But there are some facts that are just downright ominous and unsettling to an extent where ignorance is bliss.

People Debate If They'd Want The Ability To Speak Every Language Or Play Every Musical Instrument

People are often impressed by those who are multilingual–mainly because they can't imagine having the ability to communicate with others in different languages themselves.

Equally respected individuals are those who can play multiple musical instruments. Sure, playing the piano alone is impressive. But if a pianist can also play the bass and drums–essentially being their own one-person band–that is also a major wow factor.

So if you had the option to have the capacity for one or the other, which would it be?
