Are you a bad person?
Have you ever had that moment that made you question your decency as a human being? That moment where you find yourself saying, “Wow… I am a horrible person.” It’s ok. I think that happens to everyone at some point. Don’t feel bad about yourself, (unless you’re constantly being a horrible person, of course) but read these stories instead. People on Reddit reveal that moment when they first realized they were a complete POS.
We were watching a doc about the holocaust in journalism class (?) — i was sitting behind a jewish girl and right after they bulldozered a pile of dead bodies into a ditch i asked her if she saw anyone she knew.
as soon as it came out, i was horrified. we both had participated in off-color inappropriate joking before, but this was next-level.
what a shitty thing to say. i’m still ashamed. (doodledoodledee)
I’m an Adult
Threw sand in a kid’s face once. We were playing in the sandbox and I was trying to demonstrate that it exploded so I threw a bunch of sand in the air. 97% of it went right into his face. I was an adult. (Fremenking)
When I was 10 my parents shared the news that we’d be going on vacation that summer. This was my first vacation and I was ecstatic.
When I got to school the following day I told my best friend. He asked when I’d be going, I told him, and he told me that this would mean I’d miss his birthday party. This party was something he had been talking about for the last month.
I replied in the shittiest way possible with something like “I don’t care, I’m going on vacation!”
He looked pretty hurt by that one and ended up having his parents bumping his birthday ahead by a couple of weeks so I could attend.
I still feel bad about that one. (rude_for_nought )
