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

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

After Redditor pnrddt asked the online community, "What small action immediately makes you dislike a stranger?" people shared their observations.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
