We’ve all kept and discovered strange secrets, and if you haven’t you soon will.
Here are a few weird and wild secrets people have ever uncovered.
When I was young, I had a friend who lived down the street. She had a trampoline and I didn’t, so naturally we spent a lot of time together.
I also had a cousin who was a year younger than us, whom I saw quite often. Someone decided it was a good idea (or possibly just forgot I was there) to mention the fact that my cousin was adopted while in front of me.
That’s a pretty big secret in itself, but it also turned out that my friend from down the street was adopted… from the same birth mother as my cousin. My friend and my cousin were super secret brother and sister and I was a 9-year-old with this information. How exciting!
Who wouldn’t want to know they had a secret brother or sister? So I called them to the tree house on the schoolyard during recess once and spilled the beans. My family hasn’t told me a secret since.
I was training at a pizza place as part-time help many years ago. My manager was explaining the register procedures to me and everything sounded a little weird. You could mark just about any inventory as a baking mistake.
So I asked them how they stopped people from just taking cash transactions and marking off the inventory. He had never thought about it. Two weeks later he had the assistant manager arrested for stealing. I didn’t work there for long after that, it was a bit awkward.
