Kids should lock their doors and prying parents should knock. Sadly, many people disregard each other’s privacy completely and barge in. Here are a few embarrassing secrets which were uncovered by such parents
1. Secrets Were Uncovered That Day.
“When I was early in my teens We didn’t yet have a computer or the internet but we did have Cinemax, and my friend Doug introduced me to late night movies on the weekends. I never got caught with that but as a teenager who read comics and was now fully aware of female anatomy, I would try to draw pictures of Rogue or Jean Grey naked. I used to hide them either inside comics or between my mattress and box spring. I never considered that my mom would one day change my sheets. She told me she was disappointed with me for drawing the pictures but impressed with the artwork so she put it in her hope chest with all my other shit she was proud of. I was embarrassed then but now in my thirties it’s nice to know my mom cared that much.”
These secrets are embarrassing.
2. Prying Parents Please Stop.
“Not quite the question you asked but my mum did find a letter I wrote to my bf (before the days of internet and texting) where I described how I was going to give him a blow job. Couldn’t look her in the eye for weeks, even tried to pass it off as English homework! I was fourteen at the time. Two decades later I still cringe when I remember it.”
3. Way To Go Prying Parents.
“I was 17 and had ordered a new cell phone. And a vibrator. Around the same time. Vibrator came in while I was still at work, my dad got all excited that it was my new phone and tore the package open (ok wtf dad don’t open my shit but ok). SURPRISE! Giant purple rabbit with shiny pearls and errythang. He was a 1000 times more embarrassed than me and my mom nearly died of laughter. I still lol when I remember how awkward he was about it.”
If only dad wasn’t one of those prying parents.
