What do you do when you’re all alone and no one is around to watch and judge?
I know there are a few on this list from AskReddit users that hit pretty close to home – especially #3.
Fantasized about the life that you’d have together. Cooking dinner together. Going shopping for clothes together. Waking up before them and what you’d have to do to be quiet so you don’t wake them. Sitting on the couch both reading and being ok with the silent company.
Or maybe that’s just a lonely person thing, I don’t know.
Waited in the bathroom stall for whoever else was in there to leave first before coming out because they heard you destroy it. Hoping they didn’t recognize your shoes.
3. Ha! Yes!
Think that someone’s baby looks ugly.
4. All the time…
Had long imaginary conversations with someone in their head.
Sometimes mine involve facial expressions and hand gestures, which gets awkward when I don’t realize someone is watching me.
5. Bad at math
During maths exams in the past I’ve used my calculator for even the simplest sums…just to make sure. 9×10 is 90 right? Yep. Just making sure.
Thought about just jerking the steering wheel into oncoming traffic.
And then worried about what if your body did it all by itself, against your conscious will.
7. This one drives me nuts
Get incredibly defensive for no reason when someone asks you if you were sleeping and you were woken up.
8. Á la Jerry Seinfeld
Picking your nose. Especially in the car.
9. Can’t see the future
Counted down to a traffic light changing and gotten disappointed when you weren’t psychic.
“3… 2… 1… Now. Dammit. 3…2…1…NOW! Dammit.”
10. EVERYONE DOES IT
Stalk your crush’s/ex’s social media accounts. Yes, people acknowledge that this is a thing. But nobody actually admits that they themselves do it.
11. I like the sound of this one
Thought seriously about about leaving everyone and everything behind to start over elsewhere.
12. Fair enough
Peeing in the shower and the swimming pool.
Typing out a comment only to erase it because you feel like nothing you say is important or you chicken out. Also reading it over like 5 times to make sure that your spelling is perfect.
14. Might be true…
Wondered if you were secretly being videotaped like in The Truman Show.
15. One of the all-time classics
Farted and then blamed it on someone else.
16. Another classic
Picking up something you dropped, with your feet, because you’re too lazy to bend down.
17. I still do this in my late 30s
Running up the stairs to avoid the monster that is chasing you out of the basement.
18. Cause maybe your hungry
Open the fridge just to look inside, close it, and walk away.
19. Nerd alert
Pretending you are opening automatic doors using your Jedi force.
Checking if there’s a murderer lurking behind the shower curtain.
21. I’m the master of this one
Pacing while talking on the phone. Sometimes I’ll lap around my house like 50 times in one call.
22. Check it again
You take out your phone to check the time, then put it back in your pocket. A couple seconds go by and you realize you have no idea what time it said, and you have to check again.
23. Hahaha so true
Got lost while driving? Better turn down the volume on the radio, since that will surely help you find your way.
24. I usually survive
Holding your breath during an “underwater scene” in a movie just to see if you would survive.
25. Some more than others
Reading other peoples’ diaries, searching through their computer, going through their stuff, etc. We’ve all done something like this and it’s way too creepy to admit.
