[rebelmouse-image 18352734 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Y'all grab yourselves a bottle of whatever and a cookie. Some people will use any reason and I mean... ANY reason to dabble outside of a relationship. FYI... there is no viable excuse to betray your significant other but... I'm listening! But BYE FELICIA!!

Redditor FuschiaDinosaur wondered What's the worst excuse you've heard to justify cheating?

YOUR MEMORY NEEDS A BEAT DOWN.

"You weren't around and she reminded me of you so you should feel flattered"

THEN JSUT SAY SEX ONLY! NO JUDGEMENT.

[rebelmouse-image 18347841 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"I'm young and don't want to be tied down to somebody".

That's fine, but instead of cheating on somebody who thinks you actually care about them, specify that you're not looking for anything serious to begin with.

OH PLEASE!

"I felt like I wasn't good enough for you"

PARDON ME CRAZY?

[rebelmouse-image 18357384 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"Just because you've made me so happy, happier than any other guy, doesn't mean I should stay with you any longer."

ACCIDENTS "DON'T" HAPPEN!!

[rebelmouse-image 18357385 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"It was an accident."

Moron. You don't just get naked, crawl into bed, and screw five or six times.

I'M GOING TO PUNCH YOU! LOL

[rebelmouse-image 18979529 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"I relapsed." Lol right. Turns out she relapsed a lot.

STICK WITH THE CLASSICS.

[rebelmouse-image 18979530 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"One thing led to another"

STOP BLAMING YOUR PARENTS!

[rebelmouse-image 18348509 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My dad did it and its in my genes.

MAYBE TALK TO YOUR PARTNER? DUH!

[rebelmouse-image 18979531 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Buddy to me -"Dude... I just can't do my wife like I do my girlfriend. I respect my wife too much to do that."

SERIOUSLY?

[rebelmouse-image 18360815 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"I didn't think the Konami code would work irl."

AHHH THE CLASSICS PART 2.

[rebelmouse-image 18347022 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"I was really drunk"

SO IT'S ME. SORRY? YOU... $#$$%^^%$#$%

[rebelmouse-image 18979532 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"You were depressed." Gee well now I'm over the moon.

[rebelmouse-image 18979533 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I had the opportunity to.... So I took it.

WELL LET ME GET MY PASSPORT!!

[rebelmouse-image 18355709 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"I was in a totally different country."

MY FAVORITE!!!

[rebelmouse-image 18978052 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

We were on a break!!

DON'T BE A TAYLOR SWIFT SONG.

[rebelmouse-image 18979534 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Girlfriend's ex-roommate was notorious for this:

"My ex cheated on me."

"I'm a different person now."

"Practically broken up." After she slept with her now former bestie's soon-to-be ex and said bestie asked her to tell the truth.

"We're not that serious or in love."

"I don't see it going anywhere, you guys wouldn't understand." After we asked her why she was sleeping with another guy when she was still in a committed relationship.

Bonus points for gf's mom outing her cheating in front of him by accident, while he was about to help move her (the cheater's) stuff to another city.

WHO AM I? WHERE AM I?

[rebelmouse-image 18979535 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"That's not who I am, I am going through a ton of stuffright now, so I wasn't myself". Wtf does that have to do with anything?

SOME PEOPLE NEED TO A GOOD SMACK!!! OR SIX!

[rebelmouse-image 18979536 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"Yes I have been cheating on my boyfriend, but look at him, he is too ugly to be loved. So I told him either he accepts that I will have sex with other people, or I will dump him and he will never have a girlfriend again."

And that was the moment I realized I was no longer friends with her.

For the record, he broke with her two years later but only after she took a lot of money from his disability checks. He is dating a much nicer (and beautiful) girl now.

SORRY... IT'S YOU!

[rebelmouse-image 18979537 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"You're obviously not doing something right."

BEAT YOU!!! I WIN?

[rebelmouse-image 18979538 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"I think he might cheat since we're long distance until (two months from that day). If he cheats on me, I'll be devastated. So I want to cheat on him first. That way if he ever tells me he cheated on me during this time, I can tell him I cheated first to piss him off. I mean he might not cheat, but if he does, I need to be able to tell him I cheated first."

IT'S OK... I'LL STRANGLE YOU WITH MY SHOELACES!

In movies and TV, a character who is portrayed as highly intellectual has visible signifiers.

A smart character can be found in the library, immersed in tons of reading. They may wear spectacles. They may be characterized as socially awkward because they're usually withdrawn from society.

In real life, however, a person with a high IQ is not as easily identified by common Hollywood stereotypes of smart people.

How you approach life's many trials and tribulations can say a lot about who you are. However, many of us don't necessarily learn some lessons so easily.

You live, you learn... or so the saying goes.

People shared their stories after Redditor ryanblumenow asked the online community,

"What did you learn at great personal cost?"
