Sometimes there are puzzles we solve right away. Other times, there are obvious things right in front of our face that we didn't even know were puzzles. People on Reddit were asked about really obvious things they just figured out. Their answers were a mix of hilarious, shocking, and informative. Who knew "walk the plank" was so existentially terrifying?

    Grandma Roasted Him

    From Redditor u/masterlink91

    That calling some one simple is just a nice way of calling some one stupid. Wife informed me of this, after 28 years of my grandma calling me simple.

    Super embarrassing but in college I would order Roman Cokes because I heard everyone else ordering the same...turns out I misheard everyone and found out it was just rum and coke

    Vandals Don't Have Time To Say The Full Words

    From Redditor u/jordybee

    When teenagers said “we’re going to TP a house” I always thought it was “teepee” and it never made sense to me since they just covered a house with toilet paper. I recently realized that TP was the initials for toilet paper.. I’m 27.

    No Strollers

    From Redditor u/Flibble21

    The first time I visited the USA I was on my own and in NY and going to all the museums. I kept seeing signs that said "No strollers" and thought, because we call strollers prams in the UK, that you guys are super strict about the proper amount of attention required to visit a museum. I actually pretended to show more interest than I had in order not to be thougth of as some deadbeat out for a casual stroll.

    It wasn't until about day three that I saw a "No strollers" sign that included a graphic for idiots.
