20 Totally 'True' Stories That 'Definitely Happened'

Some people lead some crazy lives. It seems like every day something totally wild and crazy happens to them that is almost unbelievable. Lucky for all of us they, share these crazy and wild stories all over social media so that everyone can see just how amazing and wild their lives are compared to the rest of us boring individuals. The only issue is that a lot of these stories are very clearly far from anywhere near the truth.

The truth is that some people find their joy and excitement in lying online with stories to make them seem better than the rest, and this is very apparent. If you are going to lie to people, at least make it believable, there is no way your 2-year-old is putting out fires and cooking eggs unattended. You are not special and neither is that kid. Reddit's r/thathappened is full of cringeworthy fake stories from all around the internet. Here are 20 of them for you to shake your head at.

That Kid Did Not Say That

ach Noah Revoy Arms Dealer For... VOV "Beware of weird girls" My 9 year old son just gave me a ten minute detailed list of the signs of a weird girl. "Strange make up, weird hair color, too few clothes, too fat, too skinny, tattoos, short hair, mohawks, ignore their children, do without be married," etc. "These weird girls are everywhere, even in games or at your job maybe, you have to be careful. I dont want to look at them." He says. "Good girls are beautiful, healthy body shape and only have after getting married. They are good at taking care of their children. Make sure you get a good wife like this." "In Portugal we dont have so many weird girls, but in the UK they have too many of them." (He wanted you all to know his advice.)

Jaw Dropped

I shocked my late husband's boss at a company holiday party. Exchanging pleasantries, the boss asked me what I did for a living. "I'm a nurse," I replied, "but I make my living as a writer." ... He chuckled and turned sarcastic. "So, basically, you don't make 'much' of a living," he said. I smiled. And paused. And held eye contact. "Well, actually," I responded sweetly, "I make twice as much money as you're paying my husband." His jaw dropped. My husband laughed.

Cool Story

Her 4 year old brother ran in climbed onto the counter got in the cupboard, grabbed the baking soda poured it on the fire and extinguished it. My oldest daughter called and let me know what happened then asked how her little brother knew what to do. He obviously paid attention to what I would do in the kitchen.

ChatGPT Clapped

I used GPT Lawyer and Won Use cases Last month I was erroneously charged with using a mobile device while operating a vehicle. The cop claimed i did so while passing a small construction zone so the fine was doubled ($580).. I filed a not guilty and went to court today for a hearing. I used suggestions citing state law and provided my case to the Judge after cross examining the Cop. I felt pretty confident but the judge was a surly guy who had found everyone guilty as charged before me. I was elated when he leaned back and said "I'm going to go with him on this one. Not guilty." the cop was livid and i left elated. Thanks OpenAl, you saved me $580! 65 35 Share + Award

I'm Sure He Felt So Bad

Girl called the cops on me because I called her fat Matched with a girl Hinge, met her in person. She must have used old photos because she was thin in her pictures and very overweight in person. She was a terrible date and spent much of it talking about how much she likes iphone and instagram, and was condescending/elitist about because I use android and dont like ig. After the date I texted her saying that she should change her photos because shes a lot bigger irl. She called the cops and told them I called her fat and she felt harassed. I got a call from a police officer and he asked me what happened. He said that calling someone fat is not harassment but he wanted to follow up since there was a complaint, and not to contact her again. He was even sympathetic that I was "catfished" (his words) I hate dating apps so much. This is the type of girl that thinks if her feelings get hurt it's a crime. Good riddance.

Actually Happened

Gentlemen, it actually happened. Wholesome Was out dashing in the rain. Handed the food to a ~25f customer. She asked how dashing was going. I said it was slower than I expected since people usually order a lot when it's raining. She asked if minded getting wet. I said no, I like to workout then dash in the rain because I'm already sweaty so I don't care about the rain. She asked if I wanted to come inside to "dry off"... I'll leave the details up to your imagination. But you want to know the best part? She gave me an additional tip after I got into my car to drive away.
