    What Was That Noise?

    From Redditor u/CameForTheFunOfIt:

    I was in the military, and stories are in abundance. I'm just going to pull one out that I remember.

    One night, I watched a female soldier with a bad stomach problem run into a Porta John while ripping her pants down while opening the door. We immediately heard the noise from her release and at the same time the noise from the girl that she had just sat down on top of. Both ran out of the little blue bathroom screaming and horrified.

    The Only Time During A Play When You Wished Your Mic Wasn't Working

    From Redditor u/AnitaHand:

    During a high school play someone’s mic was on backstage and she said “I used a condom on your mom last night.” Everyone in the audience, mostly parents, heard it. It was like something from a movie.

    Then she had to go out on stage because she had obviously missed her cue.

    From Redditor u/Vlad-V2-Vladimir:

    But was the mom in the crowd as well?

    Let The Bodies Hit The Floor

    From a Redditor:

    I started high school in a new place and I was a shy kid. The first rally we had, I was running up the bleachers and tripped and fell. Took down a good 25-30 kids with me. The whole gym was laughing. My poor 14 year old self wanted to fall into the floor

    This Was A Rollercoaster To Read

    From Redditor u/Jamdog77:

    In church with the whole school for the annual founders day service. Bishop gave the Lord's prayer. In the split second of silence after the "amen," someone near me cut a really loud fart. I try not to laugh out loud by grabbing my nose. Massive nose bleed ensues. Have to walk out of the church bleeding profusely from the face and laughing hysterically. Get outside to find one of the art teachers and one of the English teachers kissing. They looked quite embarrassed and freaked out at the blood-soaked, cackling 14-year-old that had discovered their romantic tryst.

    Some Choice Words

    From Redditor u/Buffasippi:

    I used to work with a guy who had lost his leg below the knee in a motorcycle accident. One time he asked me if I was busy and I replied, “ I am busier than a one legged man in an a**-kicking contest!” It didn’t even cross my mind until he replied, “You know that isn’t really that busy.”
