16 Things People Will Continue to Do for The Rest of Their Lives but Deny with A Straight Face

There are things that we all do that we’re not proud of, things that we keep hidden from the world, even from those who know us best. An internet survey recently asked, “What does everyone do but won’t admit? Here are the 17 best responses:

Don’t Go to See the Doctor when They Know They Should

“Then go 6 months in only to hear “it’s all in your head.”

“See, I’m deathly worried that they’ll find something, and my life will be forever altered from that point forward. But if I wait 20 – 30 years, the odds of them finding something are 100%. So that means there’s no actual uncertainty, and we are just figuring out what it is at that point.”

Have (and Even Win) an Argument with A Stranger from An Encounter 3 Years Ago when You Didn’t Say Anything at The Time

“It has to be done in the shower.”

“The older I get, the more I realize I could’ve said nothing and avoided so much trouble.”

Singing Even Though I Sound Like a Dying Walrus

“I sing in my car and at home all of the time. My poor wife and kids.”

“Dancing too! I’m sure everyone dances when they’re alone, but they’ll never admit to it!”

Wonder if People You Met Briefly a Long Time Ago Still Think About You

“Probably so. I know I have. I’ve also caught up with people I haven’t seen in a decade or more who said they occasionally thought of me. Some of these thoughts of others are seemingly random thoughts that have no connection to anything as of recent.”

“What’s weird is bumping into them and them saying, “It’s that person I told you about!” to someone you don’t know. Do I have a reputation? I’m concerned.”

Rehash Conversations or Plan Future Ones with People Who Aren’t There

“And there’s something called ‘maladaptive daydreaming,’ that is a different level where you can go from incessantly rehashing conversations and events trying to find an ideal version to putting yourself in fictive situations and fantasy worlds for hours a day.”

“I do this all the time, especially when I have long drives. I don’t create fantasy worlds, but I imagine that I’m talking to another person, or an audience, about some topic.”

Judge

“We all do it. It’s about being intelligent enough to not let that cloud our perspective.”

“Our judgment is one of the things which makes us a highly evolved species. We should be judging all the time – that’s how life works. People who say one should not be judgmental say it based on religious root causes.”

Pick Their Nose

“There was a similar ask a while back, and this came up. One user’s dad apparently had a saying, “We all pick our noses… it’s what we do afterward that separates us.”

“I have caught so many people eating it after; it wouldn’t surprise me if somewhere around 50% of all people do. When you think about it, every time someone snorts, it is a similar thing, so it isn’t surprising people aren’t grossed out by it. What I did see once that baffled me was someone that ate their zit, and they just popped; you don’t do that.”

Pick Sides

“Physically, they don’t, but mentally they do.”

“I’ve had instances where I was rooting for both sides. Going to NHL games, I typically root for whatever team has an alum from the college I attended (University of North Dakota). Many times both will have one or more players. One game, I had a guy in the crowd turn around and ask me, “Who are you cheering for?” when I was rooting for either team when they scored.”

Think About Compliments Given by Someone Years Ago

“When I was a freshman in high school, I had this super shaggy hair until I got frustrated and cut it. This girl in my social studies class noticed, lit up, and said, “I can see your face!” I forget exactly what I said in response, but I was clearly shy about it, and she said, “It’s a good thing.” It’s now twenty-five years later, and I never grew my hair out again.”

Pretend Like They Weren’t Sleeping when A Phone Call Wakes Them Up

“I do the opposite and don’t answer the call. I then lay in for half an hour before telling them I was asleep.”

“I actually tell people I was asleep to not answer calls even though most times I have been awake for hours (of course, I only do this when I’m sure it’s not urgent). I hate being called randomly; it doesn’t matter who it is; I need a two-week notice.”

Complain

“No one likes a complainer,” but everyone I’ve ever met complains about stuff.”

“People will complain about complaining and still not get this.”

Talk to Themselves when They’re Alone

“Because you’re in great company.”

“I don’t really talk to myself. However, I’ll talk to my cats with the same purpose.”

Click a Pair of Tongs Together Twice Whenever They Pick One Up

“A small act, but very satisfying.”

“How else would you know they still tong?”

Road Rage at Others Who Do the Same Things as You when Driving

“Anyone driving faster than me is a maniac; anyone driving slower than me is a moron.”

“We judge others by their actions, but ourselves by our intentions.”

Fantasize About Others

“The real question would be, how many people have fantasized about you? Would it be something you’d want to know?”

“If women only knew, they’d be so repulsed.”

Secretly Wish Certain People… Move Away

“I wish for lightning to strike people in front of them.”

“Yes. I feel bad for how much I celebrate when certain people leave the area. This one guy in my friend group moved away last year, and I felt legitimately euphoric. I felt free to walk down the street without any chance of running into this person.”
