You hear the click of your door handle. Without thinking, you hurl yourself out of your desk chair to your bed. You toss whatever it is you don't want your parents or guardians to see, back into the shoebox you've had since 4th grade, and slip it under your bed. Fast, quick, and no questions asked. So, what did you hide as a teenager?


Reddit user, u/Slowbro63s, wanted to hear the horrifying, possibly disgusting, truth when they asked:

Teenagers, what is the worst thing you are hiding in your room?

A Clucking Mess

Not a teenager anymore, but a girl I was friends with freshman year of college hid a live hen in her room for over a month.

Not Even I Can Find Them

A few years ago I hid 14 beers in my room. I just found them a couple months ago.

Apparently my hiding spot was so good I forgot about them.

I'm Using All This Duct Tape For Something Else. Honest.

My mom's birthday present.

I'm setting up a pretend murder mystery for her (she's super into True Crime stuff) and if she found any of it she would think I was a serial killer.

You Know There's The Internet, Right?

Fresh Contraband

Febreeze.

I'm technically not supposed to have any, and god forbid my sister finds it, but what would I do with it? Idek who owns the febreeze. It's contraband because my sister likes to spray it in my eyes so now nobody is allowed to have it. I've been considering moving it into the garage.

How Does It Not Smell?

Probably the present we had to buy for a random classmate in high school. It was all food that I bought. But that person wasn't at school that day so I took it back home.

We meant to give it to him later but we forgotten about it. But yeah that was 5 years ago, and it's still here. I'm pretty sure that everyone else has forgotten about it.

Keep Your Nose In Check

Giphy

One time when I was 14 I had my boyfriend over (my parents hated him) when my parents were out to dinner. I asked them too many times when they'd be home and they smelled a rat. They came home early and as soon as the garage door opened I pushed him into my closet.

My parents found me in my room, blushing furiously with my top buttoned wrong. I had dogs. He was allergic.

He sneezed.

I was very grounded. For a long, long time.

At Least They Know About It Now...Right?

I had a porn magazine stash, it was locked in my desk drawer. I left home, forgot about it and then Mum called to say she was going to bring my stuff over and couldn't find the key to my drawer. Oh snap. It was on my keychain so I said hey don't worry about that I'll go through it next time I visit.

Couple of days later "Hey we found the spare key, I packed your stuff up and we'll be over to visit later".

She'd carefully packed up all the porn magazines in a box and didn't say anything about it. I asked her a few years later her reaction and she just laughed it off and said boys will be boys. My Mum's a true hero.

Just. In. Case.

Letters to relatives in the case something happens to me.

I'm a constant over thinker who worries about everything, so I wanted to be prepared in case someone murdered me or something. If someone found them now, they'd look like suicide notes

"The road to Hell is paved with good intentions."

An aged old proverb reflecting on when people perform what they think are well-meaning, helpful acts, but in reality, only worsen a bad situation.

A day seldom goes by when people won't notice an example of this, either on the news, in the book they're reading, or simply walking down the street.

This could be anything from someone making promises to help out, but never delivering on them, to saving money for a less expensive cleaner, which turns out to radiate toxic fumes, resulting in the building being closed for an indefinite length of time.

Ideas which might seem good in theory, but are impractical, illogical, or even harmful, in practice.

Unless you grew up with the most doting parents on the planet, there's probably a toy or two that you really wanted as a kid, but never received.

Whether it was too expensive for your parents to afford, or something like a noisy toy that was going to be way too annoying for your parents, there are probably some toys that you really missed out on as a child.

When it comes to fast food places, no two places are the same. Wendy's spicy chicken nuggets are far superior to those from McDonald's, while no one does milkshakes quite like Dairy Queen.

I have always preferred burgers from In-N-Out, but my brother will always go for Five Guys.

There will always be debates when it comes to which establishment does fast food the best.

The biggest debate surrounds the ultimate side dish: french fries.

No one can ever seem to agree on which fast food chain has the best french fries, but that doesn't stop the debate. Redditors are engaged in that very debate as we speak!

People Dispel Common 'Facts' That Are Total BS

Some people will just believe anything.

And if you call a statement a fact long enough, many people take it as gospel.

Some facts are absolute truths, others can be malleable.

Science changes.

History evolves.

Lies are exposed.

And research is an actual art form.
