Mom Called Out For Refusing To Invite Overweight Autistic Niece To Daughter’s Birthday Sleepover
Guy Lets Female Neighbor Stay Over After Her House Was Broken Into While His Wife Is Away
Sleepovers are a fun rite of passage that allows kids to have some overnight fun with their besties without their parents around.
And while they are called sleepovers, sleeping is the last thing that ever happens at the overnighter.
Whether they engage in pillow fights or share scary ghost stories, the event is an opportunity to let kids be kids and engage in plenty of opportunities for mischiefs.
But how far can they go with their rambunctious night of fun?
That's what Redditor skep_JoJoFan wanted to know and asked:
"What's the most f'ked up thing you did in a sleepover?"
People recalled some of their NSFW memories at a sleepover.
Making A Dirty Connection
"In the Mid-Late 90’s, my brother got really into the anarchists cookbook and learned how to tap into neighbors landlines from a box on the pole using a touch tone phone and some connectors from RadioShack."
"We’d have friends sleep over (we are close in age), and we’d sneak out and He’d hook a phone up so we could call phone sex lines from outside a neighbors house in the bushes."
"I still wonder if they disputed the charges or if the wife just thought the husband was calling 1-900-big-t*ts at 2am."
You Always Remember Your First Porn
"Raided my friend’s dad’s Playboy mags. Then my friend showed me a porn video. Full disclosure: this was early 80s."
One Traumatized Kid
"I don’t remember what we were looking for, but me and another friend went through our buddy’s parent’s bedroom drawers and found a VHS tape. We were curious and idiotic so we popped the tape in to see what was on it. Our buddy walked in while we were watching his parents have sex. His scream was the most shocking/horrifying thing I have heard to this day."
The bathroom was where the action was.
"More embarrassing than f'ked up."
"Accidently clogged the toilet at friend 'X's house. There was no plunger and the toilet was filling rapidly. I panicked and ran to my friend who promptly called for his dad. His dad takes one look and yells from the bathroom, 'Jesus, 'X'! How big of a sh*t did you take?!' It took years before I went back to his house."
Way Off Target
"visiting a friends house for the first time and i couldn’t find the bathroom (i was about 10) during a sleepover. in the middle of the night, dark, confused, i pissed in the closet."
"I clogged the toilet at a friend's house in the middle of the night. It started to overflow and there was no plunger. I woke up my friend, who then woke his parents. Turned out that the water that had overflowed had soaked through the floor and was dripping into the kitchen. His mom started trying to collect the dripping water downstairs while his dad was on clog duty."
"I never saw a plunger that night. What I did see was my friend's dad elbow deep in sh*t water pulling out a wad of sh*t and toilet paper. The floor was covered. We had to get that cleaned up. More sh*t water. By this time his sister was awake and came to investigate."
"I haven't talked to them in over 20 years."
The Water Bed
"I pissed on the air mattress and my friends mom asked if a raccoon broke in."
A Crime Scene
"Got a bloody nose... it was dark and I didn't know the house, so I stuck near the walls and went down the hallway and found the bathroom. Got the bleeding to stop, cleaned up, went back to sleep."
"In the morning, the mom came in frantic making sure everyone was alive after she saw smeared, bloody handprints all the way down the hallway..."
"In Boy Scouts, I was the morning cook, meaning I woke up before anyone else to chop wood, make fire, and get water boiling. I grab the hatchet and start splitting a log into little splinters for kindling. It was cold and dewy. The hatchet slipped from my hand mid upward-swing and went flying… to the tent circle. It seriously flew 10-15 yard and fell straight down though the roof of a tent, where 4 scouts were sound asleep."
"I’m not sure how long I waited to hear someone start screaming. I probably sat there in terrified anticipation for over a minute. Then I was worried someone might be hurt so I crawled over to that ten where the hatchet landed. I super quietly unzipped the flap, and saw it landed in a bag of clothes very close to some kids head. I snuck in, grabbed the hatchet, left the tent, zipped it back up, and finished breakfast."
"I heard them at breakfast complaining that “the raccoons” has ruined their perfectly nice tent by clawing a hole in it."
"Threw up on my cousins Christmas tree in the middle of the night at her house. I still get sh*t for that"
"Played with matches. For years afterward thought I'd burned my aunt and uncle's house down. I was staying with them, my cousin and I were lighting matches in the kitchen and throwing them in the sink to put them out. The head of one flew off and landed in the shelving unit by the sink, still smoking but when we looked for it, we couldn't find it. It was the 80s so all those 'kids, don't play with matches' ads were everywhere. Hours later we were awakened by my aunt telling us to get out of the house because it was on fire. Watched their house burn to the ground and was terrified to tell them what we'd been doing earlier. I just knew we'd done it. Carried that guilt for years. When I was around 15ish, which was many years later, I finally told my aunt. She started laughing and after realizing I'd been thinking this the whole time, hugged me and explained it had been wiring in the back bedroom. I was an adult before I finally understood, after learning about how fire marshals investigate fires that it wasn't just an assumption they'd made and could let go of that guilt. So I guess, technically, the most screwed up thing I did on a sleepover was traumatize myself for years."
Saved By The Friend
"In high school I passed out super drunk on my back at a friend's house and started throwing up in my sleep. Luckily my friend heard what was happening and woke me up and rolled me over before I had a chance to asphyxiated."
Curious prepubescents don't tend to have a filter.
Show And Tell
"We had a coed church group sleepover at a Vermont farm."
"I was 13 and recently got a fake testicle (I had my other testicle removed due to an accident)."
"I was getting people to feel my balls and take bets on which one was the real one."
Now Let Us Observe
"My friend and I were 11 or 12. His sister was about 14. She announced that she'd never seen a penis in person before and wanted to. Basically, it was a show me yours and I'll show you mine thing. Except it was directed at me and my friend. Which makes sense, I guess. If she'd never seen one before, why not try to look at two at once?"
"Ground rules were set. You can look for as long as you want or as close as you want BUT NO TOUCHING."
"After it was over, we never did that again, never spoke of it again or anything else."
The Forgotten Buddy
"Walked home while everyone was asleep. Didn't tell my friend, didn't tell their parents, didn't tell my parents, just crawled out a window at my friends house and crawled in a window at my own. Went to bed. Not a single person looked for me in the morning."
Maybe it's the fact that kids are given the rare opportunity to be away from their parents for a night that leads them to believe they can get away with anything–even though they are most likely under the supervision of other adults.
And while it seems like these Redditors recalled a fun time in their lives, I can only imagine what the parents were going through while cleaning up after the many bathroom disasters left by their young houseguests.

Parents Reveal Why They Won't Let Their Children Have Sleepovers At 'That' Kid's House
Growing up, a lot of us had parents that never let us have sleepovers. It may have really bugged us as kids, but when was the last time you stopped to think about why?
Reddit user mephizto85 asked:
Parents of Reddit, what was a legit reason why you didn't let your son/daughter have THAT friend over/go to a sleepover?
So we may finally have some answers... but we're going to be honest with you - many of you will wish you hadn't been curious. The thing about kids is that it's often not the child's fault that they're sketchy. It comes from somewhere - somewhere a lot of us wish didn't exist. We're going to be talking a lot about parents and situations that are downright horrific and heartbreaking. Proceed with caution if those things are difficult for you. They certainly are for us.

Parents Share The Creepiest Thing Their Kids' Friends Have Ever Done In Their House
You guys, kids are creepy. If you're a parent, you probably know this - or maybe you just were the creepy kid - like me! Remember guys, all of the "quirky" "dark" celebs we love were probably creepy kids at one point. So we're not saying creepy kids stay creepy - just that we really need to acknowledge their existence. And maybe get to some healthy redirecting. I mean, it's not their fauly they're creepy. They just are.
Reddit user @Edge_Goldie asked:
Parents of Reddit, what is the creepiest thing a friend of your kid has done at your house?
Brace yourself, you're about to enter a world of entitlement, lack of boundaries, inappropriate activities, and at least one or two pet murders. Yeah... kids are terrifying.
