People Share The Strangest Thing They've Ever Been Caught Doing

Did I do that?!

We're all a bunch of weirdos aren't we? We like to pretend that we aren't but once and awhile we're caught red handed in our personal tomfoolery. Redhanded and often naked. I say embrace the crazy, it makes the being caught less awkward.

Redditor u/1982throwaway1 wanted everyone to fess about a few "odd" moments in life by asking.... What's the strangest thing you've ever been caught doing?


We hear you...

Giphy

As a pet sitter, sometimes you get lonely when the majority of your interactions are with animals. Sooo, to combat this I sometimes pretend to be the inner voice of whatever dog I'm walking, responding out loud to whatever they're sniffing or whatever grabs their attention. Each dog has his/her own weird voice as well. More than once people have walked around a corner to hear me doing this. babbitygook14

Just Brushing. 

When I bought my first pair of night vision goggles, I had them delivered to the TV station I worked at (not trusting my neighbors to leave my crap alone).

So, I took a break and tried them out in the only truly dark room I could find. The mens room.

A coworker came in, flicked on the lights, and was startled to find me in the middle of the room, blinded by the sudden flash of normal light, brushing my teeth in the pitch dark with night vision goggles.

I had to go talk to HR about it. He was freaked out. helljack

Squirrel Away....

I was in standstill traffic (i.e .car had been turned off, people where loitering outside of their cars) and I had a baby squirrel that I was hand rearing in my car. I fed it some puppy milk formula from a bottle, looked up and realized I had an audience of about twenty people gawking at me. rafraska

Stick Shift....

Oh man. So I must have been about 12. I was in the car with my mom - to set the scene it was a three row soccer mom van and I was in the second row behind the passenger seat with my mom driving. Well since I was 12 I got my random hormone erection, strange and awkward enough right? Well I decide that I would pretend I was driving and that my erection was the stick shift... mom caught me.

Nice Briefs....

Running in on all fours up the stairs in underwear. Didn't realize my best friend had already come over, and I ran into him at penis level. brandthacker12

Let it Drip?

It was 3am and 15 year old me was taking a poop and got a blood nose. Now for context, I get real bad nose bleeds and usually just keep my head up and it goes away. Well I was bored. So I thought, "what if I just keep my head down and let it drip?"

I know... very stupid. Blood was all over the floor. I had every intent to just clean it up with tissues and flush it, no evidence of my little experiment. What I didn't know was that my mum was actually awake and was waiting for me to finish in the toilet for her turn. I didn't lock the door because it was 3am and I didn't think I needed to. Well... she opens the door... "why are you taking so l-" She sees the blood, starts freaking the heck out.

Thinks I'm either dead or dying. I start yelling trying to explain myself. Mum starts crying thinking she's gonna lose her son. My sister walks out her room from the crying and the yelling. Sees the blood. Freaks heck out as well. After a bit of panic I eventually explained my stupid experiment. I cleaned it up and we all went to bed. But I don't think anybody slept after that traumatic experience. SemenDemon16

Oh the Web....

When I was around 10 years old I was getting curious about sex so I decided to look it up in the dictionary. Wouldn't you know it my ultra conservative mother walks in the room so I try to play it off like I was looking up the Heida Native American tribe. She called me out for being in the S's but I doubled down and pretended i was possibly dyslexic. What a tangled web I wove. HotGarbageJuice

What an appetite....

This isn't me, but this story is so weird.

My grandma was once caught by a UPS delivery guy in the process of biting her toenails. She was in the sunroom with the screen door open, and the guy walked up to the door and witnessed that.

RIP granny, you weirdo. spiderlanewales

Avenged....

I once saw an old bloke slowly walk near a tree, have his hat pushed off by one of the low hanging branches, then proceed to, slowly, pick up the hat, declare "I avenge myself" in a neutral tone, and then break a twig off the tree before slowly walking off. bupugufik

The POP!

Giphy

Popping my friend's back by picking him up from behind and bouncing him repeatedly. A teacher walked into the room and we all froze. Threeormorepeople

Don't Sniff! 

Had a co-worker that was working at a customer site. He had a creepy little crush on one of the women that worked there but it was apparently innocent enough that no one really cared. Until one day the woman came back from lunch and saw him pick up the cushion from her chair and sniff it. He was asked to leave. mordeci00

Lips Moving.... 

Arguing with myself (well, not myself - the actual person just wasn't there, so I was standing in) in the mirror. With animated facial expressions and gestures. Lips moving, but with no sound. I now reserve these hypothetical arguments for the shower. When I am home alone. ZeddicusMortis

Let it cool....

Giphy

Sort of absent-mindedly blowing on a kettle to cool it down before pouring the water over the coffee. My wife thought that was pretty funny. normalguy_AMA

Kids will be Kids....

  1. I was like 13 or 14 in my room alone, my window wide opened, when I started to wonder if I ever got kissed what the other person would be seeing from their perspective, so I went up to my closet, which had those floor length mirrors and I started kissing the mirror, opening my eyes every once in a while to see if I looked at all attractive doing this, one of those times I opened my eyes I saw my brother outside my wide open window through the mirror looking at me with such a confused look on his face, I screamed and fell to the floor and hid in my room for a while.

2) I was a kid and creeped out by cousin's creepy doll, one morning me and the doll were alone in her room and I grabbed the doll and started to shake it and while I was yelling at it that I knew it could talk, my cousin walked in and was like what are you doing?? And I brought the doll close to me and caressed it and said I was just kidding. She kept the doll away from me after that. slave4u807

I Tooted...

In third grade, I went to the bathroom, and thinking I was alone, put my hands against the wall, leaned forward, and let out a long gigantic fart. Afterwards I let out a nice big sigh of relief and pleasure. I turn around that some other kids had come in as I was releasing that massive fart. Did not look them in the eyes as I left.

WTH?!

I was playing VR Chat with a skeleton skin on and I kept doing stupid dances that may or may not have involved a masturbation motion. I heard my wife's voice from outside the headset go "what the heck?!?" Teglement

Flapping Away....

Giphy

Walking across the road to the dumpster with a bag of trash. One arm pulled into my hoodie. Flapping it like a wing, and slowly moving forward while going in circles. Saying to myself "Flying in circles, flying in circles." Realizing that I was not circling in the right direction for the 'wing' I had and reversing to circle oppositewise. Saying "Flying in circles the wrong way."

Come back inside and find that my whole family had been watching me. Splendidissimus

Play the Cat.

i was once caught by an ex-girlfriend playing her cat like a banjo.... I had both Slushy's front paws in my hand and was strumming on his tummy, the cat was purring so loud it made her come in to see what was going on, it was a long awkward pause followed by "are you playing my cat?"

Was at the driveway at Wendy's and had exact change as I was switching the money one hand to another the quarter slipped in between my legs and I went to grab it but it slipped down further and the guy comes to the window as I have one hand full with cash and the other hand in between my legs trying to grab the quarter.

The Fallen Quarter. 

He looked and me and said "I'm not even going to ask" and I just said "the quarter fell between my legs I have exact change" I got it and handed it to him pulled up to the next window to get my food and it set it what he thought he saw me doing. So embarrassing. crazycatlady2118

Lab Time.

Giphy

In college, in lab, was coding to get double linked list to work.. when my program worked, I hugged the monitor and kissed it... it's CRT monitor, so yeah am old :) Right at that moment janitor guy walks in and sees it all and has this puzzled look. madamx797

REDDIT

When in doubt.... be a Karen! LOL

We've all seen them and at times we may have been one A KAREN! You know who that is.... a difficult person, that's describing it politely. Karen's make scenes and do all that is necessary to get anything and everything their way. Working in any form of a service job, Karens are your worst nightmare.

Redditor u/externalodyssey wanted to hear from everybody about their Karen encounters by asking.... Managers of Reddit - what is a Karen experience like ? What was you worst experience ?
