18 People Anonymously Share Secrets That They Seriously Hope Stay That Way


8. Dad’s…hobbies

My dad was a biker. He died in a motorcycle accident. He had this huge old garage/barn that he spent hours in. I was cleaning it out with my sister and we found a locked briefcase buried in a cupboard. We popped the lock and it was full of women’s clothing. Stockings, lingerie, things like that. And definitely not my mom’s size. I was pissed. He had been cheating on her.

Then I got into his AOL accounts. My mom can’t work a computer any better than she could work a spaceship, so I had to go in to shut his accounts down. There I found all of these screen names that he had made over the years. Every one of them had to do with stockings and panties. That’s when I realized that the clothing in the briefcase wasn’t a woman’s. It was his. I found tons of gay porn on his computer as well.

My sister and I swore never to tell and we got rid of all of the evidence. My mom is extremely conservative and even though I don’t agree with her point of view, I know it would kill her to find out. That briefcase is sitting in the dump now.

9. Heartbreak ice cream

I threw rocks at the school with one of my best mates and some other student tattled on us. Basically we both got the paddle (basically they smack your bum) and they sent a letter home to my dad. My dad received the letter and I lied to him and said I never threw the rocks. My dad bless his heart believed me and took it to our school principle and convinced him that I wouldn’t lie about such things. Since the principle wanted to rectify it for my dad’s sake, he offered me a free voucher for an icecream as an apology.

It’s 15 years down the track now, and I still feel really bad for it. I feel like if I told my dad now it would break his heart.

10. Anonymous “tip”

In my younger years I had a neighbor that constantly left a mess in the yard making it look like a junkyard, and they let they kids just run around messing up the entire neighborhood. I tried to sort it out civilly with them by asking them to stop doing things that pissed off everyone, but the only response I got was that I was racist and they would target me and say I touched their kids if I ever talked to them again.

They were grade A jerks so I decided to respond in kind and made an anonymous tip to the cops that they were selling drugs. I did this for maybe 4 months, asking my buddies to make similar tips every now and then.

Well one day I come home from school, the whole neighborhood is outside on the street and the jerk’s house had cop cars and a van outside. Turns out the tips worked and the cops finnaly checked it out… but then I see the mother and father getting led out in cuffs. Turns out when the cops showed up it was just two officers, but when they went to the door to talk to them the father took off out the back door. Long story short that made the cops chase him down, drag him back, search the house and end up finding a ton of pills, coke, and weed stashed all over the house. Since they had kids the hammer came down on the HARD for that and in the end they were both arrested for dealing and the kids were taken away.

Not sure if it was the right thing, and I will never let anyone know, but at least after that they weren’t messing up the neighborhood anymore.

11. Awesome

About 6 or 7 years ago I created a video together with my former boss. He was really passionate about it. After we put it up on Youtube I commented “awesome!” with my private account from home. The next day he was really excited about this comment. Didn’t know it was me and I’m going to keep it a secret. It is the only comment this video ever got (at least the last time I saw it).

12. Poor kid

In 5th grade I cheated on an exam. My buddy and i were the only two people in the grade who got this particular question correct, but I copied him. The worst part was he was considered ‘dumb’ while I was at the top of the class, so the teacher was convinced that he copied me and he ended up getting suspended.

Long story short, I was too scared to admit that I was the one who cheated as my parents would have murdered me if I failed the test and even worse if I got suspended.

13. Monopo-lol

Me and my girlfriend were playing monopoly and she was so concentrated on the game, on the dice, on her properties. She was just so… Engrossed in the board, that I was constantly taking money out of the bank and keeping it. I feel terrible about it because she was just so adorable trying to play the game and concentrate on trying to win. I absolutely annihilated her because I had so much money. She wasn’t a sore loser about it; when we were done playing and it was obvious I had won she just kind of sighed and we watched a movie. The whole time I couldn’t stop thinking about how absolutely adorable she looked while trying to concentrate and play. The way she looked at the money she had, and the properties she bought, like she was so proud of them. And I took advantage of that and stole money to win! I learned that from now on winning doesn’t matter, I need to focus on having fun with her. But I will take this to the grave because if she ever finds out she’ll be enraged.
