“My great grandmother was married to 3 different people at the same time. The men were from different branches of the military, she was collecting all three of their paychecks at a time.”

2. The Near-Catastrophic Argument

“One night as a kid I heard my parents having an explosive argument in their bedroom which suddenly went quiet (the door was closed and locked) I found out during a drunk phone call from my mother it was because she attempted to shoot my father in the face with a .303 but it didn’t go off when she pulled the trigger as there were no bullets. They were both horrified and just stared at each other apparently. They’re still together.”

3. The Thieving Sister

“Discovered that my sister stole my father’s $25k Rolex not more than 24 hours after he died. I only discovered it when her and her husband made a frivolous purchase and I wondered where they got they money since they were always broke and begging my parents for money. I got suspicious, it hit me that she might have stolen and sold the Rolex. Had the paperwork, ran a track on the sales history and discovered it had been sold to a pawn shop down the street from where my sister lives. Went to the pawn shop and after a bit of persuasion got them to tell me who sold it to them and it was my sister. Me and my mom disowned her.”

4. The Atrocious Childhood Friend

“Just found out the other day that it wasn’t my neighbor’s dad who senselessly shot and killed my dog. It was his son. Who I was close friends with. He did it on purpose purpose. He knew how much that dog meant to me too.”

5. The Scheming Ex-Wife

“My former wife (now ex) and I were having problems. I was certain she was cheating on me. I found her notes where she was figuring out and had added up how much I was worth dead.”

6. Another Thieving Sister

“My mom received birthday cards with money in them for years from her parents. She kept the cards with the money in them, saving to buy a piano/sentimental reasons. My sister, who has repeatedly stolen from family members, found the collection of cards/money and took them. My mom only wanted the cards back when she realized what happened. My sister denied everything.”

7. The Betrayed Brother

“Graduated boot camp and wondered why my brother wouldn’t talk to me, turns out he was f****** my ex while I was there instead of delivering my letters. Guess guilt ate him up and he thought it was simpler to keep up the lie and not have a brother, right up until an old friend from my hometown told me what happened.”

8. The Vengeful Grandfather

“My grandfather beat someone to death. My dad was an only child, but my grandmother was once pregnant with my dad’s younger brother. When she was 6 months pregnant, someone in construction equipment ran over the car she was driving and she lost the baby. While she was in the hospital, my grandfather found the guy and beat him to death. From what I understand, he was in jail for about a week before he was released. Apparently, he claimed temporary insanity due to the circumstances. I learned all this about 4 years ago when my brother was researching family history and asked my grandfather about it. I’ve always seen him as a nice, little old man.

9. The Grandfather Who Didn’t Exist

“When my Grandfather passed away we discovered that he did not exist. His name was not in any government registry. He was a normal citizen, paid taxes, had a license and everything. Lived a long life, married to my grandmother for over 50 years, had multiple children, everything normal. Still to now, no one knows who he really was and why he had a false name.”

10. The Uncle Who Can’t Return to Korea

“I found out that the reason why one of my uncles didn’t want to go back to Korea when he retired was that he couldn’t – he was fearful for political reprisals if he tried to return. Turned out his brother was part of the group that assassinated the S. Korean president back in 1979 and his own innocence was never proven so he was in fear of getting arrested if he ever tried to go back.”

11. The Colleague and Her Pet

“My coworker lets her dog h*** her leg every morning till “he releases” while she has her coffee which has stayed with me since I heard it. I can’t think of anything else when they talk to me.”

12. The Uncle Who Wasn’t Allowed Over

“I was pretty close with my youngest uncle growing up, at least in pictures (he was in his mid-20s when I was like 5 for context). One day when I was in middle school he just stopped coming around completely. My entire family told us kids that he was backpacking around the nation. In high school I was doing a genealogy project on my grandfather (his dad) and accidentally found my uncle’s name on the s** offender registry. Come to find out he was running a CP ring and had served 16 years in federal prison.”

13. The Paranoid Grandmother

“So my grandmother…has this weird thing where she has to share food with people. Are you ordering steak at the restaurant? Well, oh boy she’s gotta order the same thing even if she doesn’t like steak. Try her drink, “it’s really good!” Take the first bite of chicken to let her know if it’s “any good.” This always really annoyed me cause I hate sharing food. One day I brought it up to my mom and she was like, “oh yeah, grandma is afraid of being poisoned, so she wants other people to try it first.” SO LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT, GRANDMA THINKS SOMEONE IS TRYING TO POISON HER SO SHE HAS ME TRY THE FOOD FIRST??”

14. The Best Friend’s Secret Child

“My best friend confessed to me that he has a child as a result of a long-distance affair in another country. He has three kids in the US and is in a toxic marriage. His wife doesn’t know.” 

15. The In-Law Affair

“Two weeks after I had my daughter, I found out my father and my mother in law were having a gross affair, I say gross because my mother in law’s boyfriend at the time found by logging into her Facebook, she was having so much casual sex, with random people, and had photos and videos to prove everything, he showed it to my husband, my husband showed it to me and we had to move out of his moms place…”

16. The Savings Stealing Father

“My ostensibly pious and God-fearing married Mormon dad was siphoning off shared savings/retirement money to bankroll ***** clubs, “massage” parlors and visits to SW street corners for longer than my entire life. Had I not personally caught him red-handed, I would never have believed it. My gob is still smacked.”

17. The Father Who Was Texting His 17-Year-Old Lover Before He Passed Away

“The 24 hours before my dad died (stage 4 lung cancer) he was in the ER and then the ICU and we were unable to be with him because of hospital Covid rules. My mother, sister and myself had been texting and calling him all day and got no response. 

Later that morning while my mom slept I was calling cremation services to schedule his body for pick up at the hospital and going through his bag of belongings the hospital had returned to us. I opened his phone and all our texts had not been read, not mine or my mom and sister’s.

I opened the app and saw a single contact with a female name. I started reading and realized my dad has been chatting with this girl hourly for the last 24 hours and as far back as I could scroll. 

My grief was completely hijacked by hurt and anger and a week later I tracked the girl down and spoke to her (via dms) and found out she was 19 years old. She was 17 when they met. He was her high school bus driver and she told me they had been dating for almost 2 years.

My dad was 66 years old when he died and dating someone younger than his grandchildren, someone he chose to spend his last moments with and say his last goodbyes to. ”
