15 Cringeworthy Stories From Reddit's 'That Happened' That Obviously Did Not Happen

We've all lied about something at some point in our lives. Some people, however, lie about pretty much everything, and usually it's for attention on social media. Naturally, we don't condone lying, but if you're going to do it, at least make it somewhat believable. Because once in a while, someone comes up with a story so outlandish that it winds up being mocked on Reddit, and rightfully so, because they're truly strange stories to behold.

These stories from /r/thatHappened aren't exactly realistic. In fact, they're so poorly thought out that it's truly amazing someone took the time and energy to type them out and post online. These posts are so far beyond unbelievable that they're just plain cringeworthy at this point. Actually, they're even worse than that. Take a look at some of our new favorite stories that should have never been told.

Not to Be Political, but… Nope

Rick Allen (R-GA) recorded saying the GOP is going after Social Security because people "want to work longer."

And Then the Man Took Him on a Tour of His Chocolate Factory

n 8d ago 30 years ago a homeless man asked me for money to buy a meal. I took him to dinner then bought him a new pair of shoes, some socks and a blanket. Then at the end of the night he revealed that he wasn't homeless and that in fact he was wealthy and owned a business and then he offered me a job. That job paid twice what I had been earning. THAT, he said, was how he recruited his employees. 574 D 24 replies

Treadmill Hacking

A guy whistled at me at the gym. 30 minutes later I saw him going to the treadmill, used my phone to hack it, and set it to 50 mph. He fell on his ass and the owner gave me a free 12 month subscripton

I do love working out on my hackable treadmill that goes up to fifty miles per hour while the gym manager monitors everyone's access to the hacking software.

Apparently This Wasn't Intended As Satire

A rare moment of rabbitkin acceptance I went out for dinner with my anti-otherkin mother last week, and as we were ordering our food, the waiter asked us what we wanted. I said "As a rabbitkin, I would like some kind of mixture of human food and rabbit food. As the waiter wrote this down, my mom yelled at me "FOR THE LAST TIME, OTHERKINS ARE DISGUSTING! THEY PRETEND TO BE SOMETHING THEY ARE NOT! NO DAUGHTER OF MINE IS RABBITKIN!"! As I cried and cried and cried, the waiter said to my mother "You are a small-minded bigot! As it turns out, I am a plantkin myself, and my wife is a spacekin! How dare you offend us like that!" and threw her out of the restaurant. The entire restaurant began to clap and cheer. I got a free dessert, and they added a new option to the menu: Rabbitkin special surprise!

The commenters on this Reddit repost insist this isn't satire, but if it was meant to be read seriously, that's…troubling.

I'm inclined to believe this is a half-truth, where this TikToker went to the Billie Eilish movie and started jumping up and down alone, attempting to start a mosh pit that never happened and making everyone else deeply uncomfortable.

This Is Less Believable Than the Rabbitkin Story

LIVE Following For You I once stopped to help a guy on the side of the road change a flat tire and tried to talk to him about Jesus but the conversation didn't go anywhere. On one of my business cards I wrote down the info for a church I like and gave it to him. I found out later that he had been an enforcer for drug dealers. When his tire blew out he had been on his way to kill 5 guys he worked for. He was so shook that the person that the person that stopped to help him mentioned Jesus that he went to the church, met a guy named Ron who shared the gospel, gave his life to Jesus and was radically changed. When you step out in faith and plant seeds and God will do amazing things. zygodstory #Jesus #holyspirit #faith #jesusfreak #God #christiantiktok #acts ♫original sound - thatfaithgal O 20.5K 138 382 411

The Flair Says This Was a "Small" Mistake

TIFU By stabbing my classmate. S So, today i was at geography class, we were learning about countrys. The teacher asked does someone know how many countrys are in Europe, i exictly shouted "Isn't Europe a country?", Whole class started laughing me because i was apparently wrong. They started calling me a mud head and i got very angry. On the way to home i saw one of the classmates that called me mudhead, he saw me and started shouting "Mud head!". I got very frustrated and then something snapped inside of me, i took knife out of my pack back. (Everyone wondering why i have a knife on my pack back, that's because i was going hiking after i got home) I took the knife and hid it behind me, i slowly walked to the bully and just stabbed him. When i realised what i have done, i started running to home. I don't know if someone had seen that because it was a forest route. I'm writing this on the car. I will keep you updated. (Sorry for bad english, english isn't my mother language) TL;DR I stabbed my classmate and noone knows it yet.
