What Did You See That You Definitely Weren’t Supposed to See? People Shared Their Stories.

Every once in a while, when you’re least expecting it, you see something you DEFINITELY weren’t supposed to see.

Maybe it was in a bathroom, or a locker room, or even in a living room that you barged into unannounced.

But you don’t forget those things, folks…

Have you ever seen something you definitely weren’t supposed to see?

These AskReddit users sure did and they shared their stories.

1. Wow.

“My dad gave me a piece of furniture one time.

When I got it home, a post-it note which had been stuck to the bottom floated down to the floor. I picked it up, and in my dad’s unmistakable handwriting were various notes about gay personal ads he’d been responding to — details about the other guys. Their names and ages and s**ual interests, the status of their conversations, etc.

My dad was, at least I thought, very straight. I put two and two together and realized this piece of furniture was from an apartment he kept briefly while he and my stepmom were on the outs for about a year.

None of this bothered me one bit, but I got the distinct impression that my stepmom (an older, very conservative lady) would have NOT been cool with any of this… I let him go to his grave without ever telling him.”

2. Can’t unsee it.

“Grandma naked… repeatedly.

My room is across the hall from the bathroom and I would do homework a lot with headphones on. I heard my grandma holler something to me from the bathroom.

Took my headphones off and look to the bathroom door right as she opened it to go to the guest bedroom. Turns out she was saying “don’t look! Naked grandma!””


“My parents were getting ready to head out for a double date with my friend’s parents. Everyone came over to our place beforehand and brought their kids because their oldest daughter was going to babysit the rest of us.

The adults were in the kitchen chatting and my sibs and I decide we want to show our new sitter this home video we made of a turtle we caught. None of the tapes were labeled well so of course we end up putting on what turned out to be my parents’ s** tape.

Five kids with our jaws on the floor watched as my mom pulled down my dad’s boxers and started bl**ing him. Dad was hung apparently.

The sitter who was maybe 15 at the time dove for the VCR and powered it off. Within seconds all the parents come through, “ok, kids, be good…” met with our stunned silence.”

4. Oops.

“One time I was up late at night scrolling Facebook at the same time as my drunk and high off Xanax married mother who was an entire timezone away at the time.

She was messaging an old fling from high school while her husband was away at work and was sending him close up pictures of her vagina. How I know this is because she didn’t send them via messenger, SHE POSTED THEM ON HER ACTUAL FACEBOOK PAGE.

I had to call her in the middle of the night in her zonked out stupor to get her password to delete pictures of vagina off her own Facebook page.”


“About 5 years old. Woke up to the snow finally starting to melt. Notice a girl “asleep” in the garden.

Went a told my dad, he took one look and told me to go play in my room.

Turns out girl had been “asleep” in our front garden for about 2 weeks buried and frozen under the snow.”

6. I’ll take that.

“My company’s entire payroll on a spreadsheet.

Someone left it on the printer.

Used the info to get a way past due raise.”

7. Good for you, sir.

“Was fixing an elderly neighbor’s laptop that had n**es of his wife on the desktop with the thumbnails at maximum size.

It’s like he wanted me to see them. I will say though, she had a bangin’ bod for a woman in her 70s.

I think it’s safe to say he thought the same.”

8. Oh, boy…

“When I was a kid I had to pull one of my ferrets out from under my parents’ bed and locked in his jaws was a bright red rubber d**do.”

9. Uh oh…

“I was working at a hotel during college and I saw my lab partner get a room with the professor.”

10. Totally awkward.

“My aunt sent a picture of her t**s to my mom after she got them done.

I happened to be the one using the phone when the message came through and opened it without expecting anything like that.”

11. Awful.

“When I was still married, my (then) wife had left her phone on to run to the bathroom while I was in bed, I looked at it for the time, and found it was left open to a secret Gmail account she was using for sending literally hundreds of n**es back and forth between many many dudes.

For years.

Up to that night while she was fully 6 months pregnant. Mostly original stuff too. I think that hurt more.”

12. Confusing.

“Naked men wrestling on my mom’s laptop (not gay p**n, it was actual wrestling in a ring, just with their soft di**s out) when i was like 9.

She later came out as a lesbian, so i’m not sure what that was all about…”
