There’s not much worse than that moment when you walk in on something or someone and just stop, go cold, and wish you could disappear and rewind your life. We’ve all done it at least once, and those moments really do stick with you.
These 12 people can recall those moments perfectly, and are sharing the ones they can absolutely never forget.
12. Definitely something you never want to see.
Saw a man crash his motorcycle into the back of a parked car. He flipped over the car hitting his head on the pavement and dying on scene. Firefighters showed up and sprayed his brains and blood down the storm drain.
Later found out it was a girls father who I went to middle school with. I was 12.
11. That’s not a bad day.
I had a tree house in my back yard. The neighbors behind us had a pool. I was 12 their daughters were 18 and had their boyfriends over.
They end up jumping topless into the pool while I was chilling in the tree house reading
10. Mail fail, Teach.
In my high school Spanish class, our teacher had taped (VHS) a telenovela for us to watch.
When she put the VHS tape in, there was about .25 seconds of of a porno that played…a topless woman moaning.
Out of a class of around 30 kids, only about 5 of us looked around at each other and locked eyes with a “did anyone else just f**king see that?!” look.
Our teacher must have taped over an old porno VHS of hers.
9. That’s definitely interesting.
naked men wrestling on my mom’s laptop (not gay porn, it was actual wrestling in a ring, just with their soft d**ks out) when i was like 9.
she later came out as a lesbian, so i’m not sure what that was about.
8. Just a bit off the path.
I was hiking in a forest with some friends, and as we continued on the trail, the mound of rocks on our right side opened up to more forest. Myself and one of my friends were leading the other two by a couple of yards, and we both briefly saw a couple having doggystyle s^x several hundred feet into the forest on that right side.
My friend and I gave each other that “did you see that s*%t too?” look. By the time my other friends caught up the couple had split and we couldn’t see them anymore. It was like 2pm in broad daylight off of a main road, which was the weirdest part.
7. He ratted out his dad.
Was working on a school project with some kid. Opened a folder where I thought we saved some of the videos for the project. It was nothing but his dad’s beastiality porn.
I’ll never forget the look on that kid’s face. His parents got a divorce like month later, and he moved away.
6. One awkward moment.
I was at a work-related retreat for a week and ended up sharing a room with a guy from a different site. It was my first time meeting him, but we hit it off pretty well from the get-go.
The last night I was there, I walked into our room and found him in bed with one of my male coworkers. Without missing a beat, I did a 180 and walked out the door without saying a word. As I was walking away, my coworker angrily whispered, “I thought you said you didn’t have a roommate.” (For some reason, my roommate thought I was going to leave a night early, but that didn’t happen.)
Ended up spending a couple of hours at the main cabin chatting with some folks so they could have their fun.
I don’t work there anymore, but I remember every time I would run into said coworker, he would always try to avoid chatting with me. I definitely didn’t care if he was sleeping around, but, in retrospect, it was probably more embarrassing for him than it was for me.
5. That’s definitely a moment.
I went on a road trip with my grandma when I was 15. My mom let me borrow her suitcase. Pretty sure she forgot that she’d stashed an envelope of VERY dirty photos of her and my stepfather. About a dozen, in various acts, with various people and objects.
My grandma walked in as I discovered them and I was in a PANIC fearing she might ask to see the photos I was looking at.
Thankfully my aunt distracted her and I was able to hide them away in the pocket where I’d found them.
It was quite an awakening.
4. I mean. Good for them.
My grandparents were both a bit deaf. I was downstairs prepping dinner and called out to them.
I placed their plates on a tray instead and walked upstairs to their room, their door half open.
Saw my fully naked grandma riding my fully naked grandpa like they have no aches and pains. It’s weird, like normally they do everything in slo-mo. Apparently not.
3. A rough day on the job.
I was working airport security. I know I’m sorry, we all hate it too. The x-ray guy sees a jar of cream in a bag. I’m called to the bag check and get the owner of the bag to come with me to do a bag check.
I look through it, find what appears to be a jar of gel and i tell the tiny effeminate man he can’t bring gels through. He looks to the other side of the check point tells his very large stereotypical plumber looking boyfriend this.
And he says; “No.. not.. it’s. not.. YOU F**K IT!!!!” Yeah he yelled the last part, i was holding his fleshlight. I had to do a chemical swab on a fleshlight.
2. Why did he answer the door??
When I was a kid, maybe 8 years old, I went over to visit my friend who lived across the street. I’d often come over unannounced and just knock on their door to ask if my friend wanted to hang out.
So I get there and knock on the door and wait for it to be answered. No one comes but I can hear noises indicating that someone is home so I knock again. My friend would often play video games with headphones on and would be slow to answer the door, so I just keep waiting and knock again, unsure why it’s taking so long for the door to be answered. My friend’s dad walks into the hallway to try to spy through the glass door to see who it is. He stands there fully naked, dick swinging, and we make eye contact through the glass. I turn to walk away, but he sees me leaving and approaches the door and opens it. At this point I see a woman appear behind him who was very naked and very much not his wife.
My friend’s dad panicked and just stares at me. I panic too and ask if his son, my friend, is home. He awkwardly said “no, he’s not here” and decides that now might be a good time to finally cover his nakedness. I don’t say anything else and just turn to leave, at which point my friend’s dad just blurts out “don’t leave!” I look back, shocked and confused. He hurriedly leaves the room for a few seconds, while I’m forced to say a very awkward hello to the naked lady standing in my friend’s house. The dad comes back and hands me a fist full of cash and says “don’t tell anyone” or words to that affect. At the time I didn’t comprehend why he was giving me money, so I refused it and just walked back home.
It wasn’t until years later that I fully comprehended what I had witnessed and why my friend’s mother kicked their dad out of the house soon after that.
1. Those are some terrible parents.
When I was 13ish, I went in to our computer room just in time to finish seeing my dad send an email that said “I love you” and some other stuff to a woman that wasn’t my mom. He tried to cover my eyes and act like he was joking around.
I promptly left and went back awhile later. I tried getting in his email but he had changed the password. (We all knew it because his email was used to log in to a lot of stuff by the family) I never told my mom.
Few years later, he divorced my mom and she asked me for help getting proof of him cheating from the laptop he had also used. I found GRAPHIC Craigslist messages that he had sent and received.
Just gonna add a PSA here to parents – don’t f**king ask your child to do this. Take it to a god damn PC shop and save your child the emotional and mental scars.
Great, now I can’t forget them either!
