Guilty. I'm guilty as sin. And I have no shame in admitting that. We've all behaved badly and have been caught unexpectedly while in the midst of our naughtiness. Life goes on, but the eyes of a witness can never unsee what they've seen. And those of us who are guilty of... whatever... can never wash away that feeling of humility.

When one is caught in a compromising sitch, one should just smile, nod and move along. Unless it's murder or something. That's a bigger fish to fry.

Redditor u/JakeGyllenHaalz wanted to who has the guts to fess up to all of us, by asking:

What's the worst thing you've been caught doing?

Don't Look

Cat Driving GIF Giphy

"My aunt, unexpectedly, drove up next to me. My wife was currently going down on me. We make eye contact. I obviously say "the hell" which made my wife look up. The look of horror as we all made eye contact was pretty awkward."

"I don't know"

"Not me, but I was there. My best friend's mom caught her having sex in the garage when we were teenagers. Her mom asked me where she was and I just said "I don't know." And then I hear the garage door open and was like "she's screwed." Happened over ten years ago and my best friend and I still laugh about it."

Not a Teen Movie!

"I was caught naked in the closet of my lesbian then-girlfriend's bedroom as a teenager, by her catholic parents. They got home early and my clothes were right there in the living room. Yes I know it sounds like a teen movie, no I didn't mean to star in one. They didn't even wait for me to leave before yelling at her."

"I was internally like what in the hell. I awkwardly left and she ended up joining me a while later crying, pretty much the only time I ever saw her cry. We're friends now and we just pretend it never happened. I manage to forget it until times like this."

On the Job

"Going back many years but I got caught having sex with my then girlfriend at work (now ex-wife). We knew it was an area with no cameras but our manager walked past and caught us. Somehow we didn't lose our jobs that day and he told us he'd look the other way, but to never do crap like that again."

Pillow Talk

"My grandpa once walked in on my fifteen year old self making out with a pillow while I was spending the summer with him and my grandma, it's a good thing he was senile and didn't know what I was doing."

Bad Times

"Out after my towns curfew. I didn't even know we had a curfew till that day. Or was it the time i was caught on the church roof next to my trailer park? Dunno, but it was with the same friend from both times."

Butt Twins

"I was at the gym and saw my wife in front of me on the stair machine. I stood behind her and used my phone to video her, particularly her butt. She didn't know I was there. I texted the video to my wife. She texted back later and said "you like her do Yah?" I looked over and from the side I could see this girl on the machine and it absolutely was not my wife. She looked exactly like her from behind. FML."

High as Kites

"I got caught smoking pot and drinking when I was in high school by a teacher, a substitute teacher, and the principal. We were having a small get together, like 6 of us, at my friend's grandmother's house. We didn't realize her neighbor, who was a teacher at our school, was having her own get together. She was normally at the country club letting loose on the weekend. We saw that and knew we couldn't smoke in the house, so we just turned out the lights and snuck outside."

"We were sitting out there and had gotten high as kites. We thought we were in the clear. We heard someone from the neighbors house go "hello?" And we all got super quiet. They again said "hello? Is someone out there?" I said "hey!" Them:"what are y'all doing" Me: "oh just hanging out" Them: "who's all over there?" I told them. Well the teacher had gotten sloshed and decided to come over to say hello."

"We reeked of pot and booze and she picked on us for it. The sub was like leave them alone, "I told you not to come over here." The principal walks up beer in hand and sees it's her students- and her eyes get big. We were all a part of a Christian school and should've been expelled and them fired but we all just kind of agreed to never speak of it again. I still laugh when I think about it."

So much sex. Why is it always sex? We really need to calm down about sex. But it really is the most interesting and blush inducing topic. Always will be.

People Explain Which Lessons Aren't Taught In History Class But Should Be

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?
