20 Of The Strangest Admissions We Can All Secretly Relate To
We all have moments where we display certain idiosyncrasies in private moments and dismiss almost guiltily. With 8 billion people in the world, there’s bound to be someone out there in the world who’s also repeating your actions in guilty pleasure. Some of these people have described our most ridiculously secretive habits behaviors in the most relatable way that you’ll hopefully love and enjoy just as much as we did.
#1 Avoiding Holding Up A Line By Carelessly Stuffing Your Wallet With Cash And Receipts
Does it even matter if the change is correct? You are aware that there are carts in front of you and that you won’t be the one holding up the line today.
#2 Reading The Instructions On A Food Package, Tossing It In The Garbage, And Then Retrieving It Because You’ve Already Forgotten Everything
Why do we expect we’ll be able to recall exactly how much milk we need as opposed to water?
#3 In Order To “Make It In One Trip,” You’re Carrying Far Too Much From Your Car
A second trip? Don’t be ridiculous. It would be better to just simply hop inside the house while holding the milk between your knees and balancing an infinite amount of plastic bags on each arm.
#4 Pace The House When You’re On A Long Phone Call
Long phone conversations always necessitate a few excursions from the living room to the dining room, followed by a stop in the bedroom, before making your way back to the kitchen. We’re not sure why. It is exercise, at least.
#5 Using Your Phone To Check Out The Internet While You’re Actually Taking A Break from Your Computer
Perhaps the tiny internet offers something more intresting or more authentic than what the larger internet does.
#6 Not Washing The Dishes
Those who did not have a stack of dishes in the sink when they were not being reminded to wash them. Then, in order to rip it off, you must soak it for 30 minutes.
#7 Doing That Cozy-In-Bed Cricket Leg Rub
Do you ever feel like rubbing your legs together like a cricket when you slide into a newly made bed? What in the world gave rise to such instinct? Making the bed feel cozier still, it’s as though you’re attempting to kindle a fire with your legs.
#8 Bringing A Book To The Beach But Not Actually Reading It
Opening up that brand-new bestseller and reading it was something you had every intention of doing. But instead, you just took a bunch of foot selfies next to the water before dozing off.
#9 Wielding A Bare Wrapping Paper Tube As A Lightsaber
When your supply of wrapping paper runs out, you are left with a cardboard tube. How about you? The obvious response is to begin making lightsaber noises and spinning it like Ewan McGregor. (What else should I do?)
#10 Eating A “Family Size” Bag Of Chips By Yourself
It is not your fault! For some reason, Doritos don’t come with an emergency kill switch to close the bag before it’s too late. The Godfather was playing on cable, the bag was on your lap, and it’s a loooong movie.
#11 Rehearsing A Conversation In Your Head That You’ll Probably Never Have
That one colleague at work who doesn’t take you seriously won’t know what hit him when you deliver the epic speech you’ve been drafting and honing for months. Even if you never say any of it aloud, the fact that it is at least in your head is enough reward.
#12 Pretending To Be In A Movie While Listening To Music On Headphones and Walking Down the Streets
It’s probably playing the soundtrack of your own action-adventure film, in which you play the main character.
#13 Sneak A “Sniff” Test
We’ve all been there: You smell something unsavory and become concerned that it might be you, so you nonchalantly raise your arm and angle your head to smell your pits. This tactic also functions when you are unsure of whether you have on deodorant.
#14 Purchasing Plenty Fresh Vegetables For A Week And Not Using Any Of It
After work, you continued to order delivery, and before you knew it, the vegetables started to spoil.
#15 Carefully Examining A Product At The Grocery Store Because The One You Actually want Is Blocked By A Customer

So you’ve spent your precious time learning everything you can about a jar of gherkins while you’ve been waiting for someone to move out of the way at the grocery store.
#16 Drinking From The Bottle
It could be a tiny 0.25-liter bottle or an enormous 2-liter container. Everyone takes a drink from the bottle, without using glasses or cups, whatever is poured into it.
#17 Overthinking Eye Contact
We strive to find the ideal balance between eye contact and looking away so that it doesn’t feel awkward. But you spend so much time thinking about yourself that you want to rethink things.
#18 Rewinding The Song Because You Zoned Out
You know when you’re halfway done and realize you haven’t given the masterpiece enough thought, so you have to start over? I’ve done this once three times in a row.
#19 Have Imaginary Arguments In Your Head
At least you win every time.
#20 Peel Dead Skin Off Your Lips
You also have a unique ritual that involves a hot towel and a ton of lip balm. Until you go too far and start bleeding, it is always satisfying.
