What Did You Do Once and Never Again? 12 People Shared Their Stories.

One and done.

For some things in life, it’s probably the best way to go.

And, of course, it depends on the person…

Folks on AskReddit talked about what they’ve done once and they’ll never do again.

Let’s take a look.

1. Lucky.

“I stayed at my Sisters place one night and we for the life of us couldn’t find the vacuum cleaner to blow up the spare mattress. So I hit on the bright idea of using the car exhaust to blow up the mattress.

Back then the car used leaded petrol.

As a rule, I sleep with the windows and door closed so I am damn lucky.

Woke up next morning (in hindsight luckily) with the mattress 1/2 flat and the room smoggy. But being low to ground near door, the draft under it keep me alive (again in hindsight).”

2. Bad idea.

“Carolina Reaper infused gummy bear.

I almost called for an ambulance.

Legitimately thought I was going to d** covered in sweat, s**t and vomit.”

3. Not too bright.

“When I was 10ish years old I knew about s**ual things, and when you find smutty magazines and p**no mags you grow up believing that you’re gonna have s** all the time with every random person.

After shaving what small p**es I had, I rubbed toothpaste all over thinking “yeah the girls will like this” did I think it’d taste better? Smell better?

I have no idea. All I know is it stung. I had a cool mint d**k for hours.”

4. Didn’t have a good time.

“Hiking through jungles. They look so beautiful in movies. In reality they are some of the most brutal hikes I’ve been on.

Let’s start with the humidity. It’s so bad it drenches you to the bone, and there’s no escaping it. Being under a jungle canopy is like being in a pressure cooker. The heat and humidity beats you down harder than any environment I’ve been in.

Then there’s the swarms of biting bugs. From never-ending mosquitoes, giant spiders on everything, ticks jumpung on you from everywhere and colonies of aggressive fire ants criss-crossing the trails, you can expect to have more bug bites than you’ve thought possible to survive.”

5. Never do that!

“Put pizza wrapped in foil in the microwave when I was 10 thinking it will warm up quicker.

It surely did by lighting on fire 3 seconds after I turned it on.”

6. Here we go!

“Jumped off a bridge into a river.

I don’t like heights but I can officially say that if my friends jumped off a bridge, I would too.”

7. Hell no.

“Went to Times Square for New Years Eve in New York City.

I live in NYC and I figured it was the kinda thing I wanted to see but didn’t need to see again. Went in 2000 when I was 18.

Got there 11 am and stayed for 13 hours in the freezing cold but with close spots to the ball drop and screen. I’m glad I did it. I’m also glad I’ve never done it again.”

8. Dangerous.

“Not paying attention to currents when swimming in the sea (and going anyway when there’s a red flag and no guard).

Dumbest s**t ever. I was with my two brothers and my father, happily splashing around. Suddenly we turn around and the shore just got very far away.

So we start swimming back but the sea is stronger than you. If you stop 5 seconds to catch your breath you lose the progress you did during the last minute, and that’s precious.

I was young so I don’t remember it as a legit life threatening situation, but my bros and dad still got chills when talking about it.”

9. Yuck.

“I mixed milk and orange juice because I thought it would taste like a creamsicle…it didn’t.”

10. Ouch.

“I jumped off a roof barefoot when I was a kid, I’ll never do that again.

It was an older house and the roof was low to the ground, so it seemed okay, but my judgement led me astray. I landed on a stone entryway and immediately collapsed to the ground. I had to crawl my way back inside and it was extremely painful.

The reason I did this is because the bathroom door jammed shut and I had no way out(old house). Didn’t break anything but my feet were bruised, I’m surprised I didn’t break anything from the hard impact.”

11. Well, this is awkward…

“Stayed at a bed and breakfast.

I’m not social enough to socialize with people during breakfast.”

12. Oh, boy.

“Bath salts.

Tried some from a guy who went by “Asian Billy”. I did about enough to cover the head of a framing nail and was pretty much having a panic attack for the next 8 hours.

I went to a casino with the other people I was working with and Asian Billy and sat at a blackjack table and just said, “I have no idea what I’m doing, sorry everyone if I mess up your bets.”

Everyone was cool and I ended up winning $175.”
