We’re all guilty of a little curious snooping every now and then, but sometimes that curiosity can leave you scarred for life. Because when you pry on someone’s privacy, you’ll soon learn why somethings need to remain private. And when that situation arises you can’t help but fall into the ‘curious snooping FAIL‘ zone. It sucks.

Some people found that out the hard way. Like the people who decided to undertake some curious snooping on this AskReddit thread and unfortunately lived to regret it. One Redditor posted the question ‘When was the last time you were snooping, and found something you wish you hadn’t?‘ and was met with answers that will have you both cringing and laughing heartily. it’s a showcase of ‘what has been seen can never be unseen’.

From kids who found their mom’s ‘back massage’ to a husband who found out his wife was a secret lesbian, they’re pretty shocking. Then there’s someone who found condoms in their dad’s backpack. Nothing wrong with that you might say, but there is when you find out its a backpack that the dad only uses on business trips.

Entering The ‘Curious Snooping FAIL Zone’

Curious Snooping FAIL.

Other revelations include finding out that your parents are actually your grandparents. And seeing naked pictures of relatives that you would rather not see naked pictures off. Of course this being Reddit the stories are going to be of the more extreme variety but still snooping, in these situations at least, always seems to end badly.

At the very least they should make you feel a little apprehensive the next time you feel the inclination to go nosing around in someone else’s stuff. And if there is a moral to be learnt here it’s, only go snooping if you’re prepared for your world to be turned upside down. Otherwise, ignorance is bliss.

Check out some of the snooping stories below.
