Top 10 Things You Least Want Your Parents to Catch You Doing

So you are minding your business home alone when surprise! One or both of your parents came home early! Here's the stuff they don't want you to see you ever doing.
The Top Ten
1 Masturbating

My dad caught me masturbating twice. The first time he walked in on me and it was kinda awkward but we didn't talk about it afterward. I guess he just accepted it because he knew it was normal and I'm sure he does it, or he at least used to do it when he was younger. The second time he caught me I had my door open, which was stupid of me and he saw me masturbating. He had a chat with me about it but all he mainly said was it's fine if I want to do it, he doesn't mind me doing it but I just need to close my door because he doesn't want my sisters or mum to have to see me masturbating. But mostly he was pretty chill, I guess because he knew every guy does it. It is normal and he most likely does it or did it when he was my age. (to be honest, he probably just has sex every night now with my Mum! ) - That would feel better and you'd get better orgasms anyway!

Lol so true, if parents caught you jerking your fly... then wouldn't be so happy about it. I mean there's been a few times I was almost got caught doing this. My advice whatever room you're doing it make sure it's locked and that the volume's muted. All I have to say about that.

Imagine being quiet for so long, but suddenly your dark secrets have been discovered then the explaining gets too complicated.

It's something everyone's been caught doing, but that doesn't make it any less embarrassing in the moment.

2 Having sex

Masturbating, they do not get angry. Sex, they go mad and ban you from the person you are doing it with forever.

What the heck is wrong with you people!

What a disturbing thing to find.

Why is this not on top?!

3 Breaking their stuff

I accidentally broke my mom's heater while carrying it down the stairs. She told me to take it down from her room and I accidentally tipped it over and broke the dials as I was picking it up. She forgave me afterwards.

It's one thing to mess with their stuff without permission. It's another to break something they own.

Oh you broke insert high tech gadget that was overly expensive.

I have broken/destroyed MANY items when I was a kid...

4 Eating all of the food

I have a fear that somebody's going to walk in on me eating something and be like "WHY are you eating all the food? "

Typical, but no harm no foul just make up for it next time around.

I got busted for eating all the food at a party once...

It should be sweet food. Not all food is bad

5 Doing drugs

Unless you have parents that do drugs every day (and are subsequently awful at parenting, for the record), no parent ever wants to catch a kid doing drugs. You learn this kind of stuff is school yet some kids you might know decide to do it. Heck, I see lots of smokers on campus daily.

On the other hand, there is that whole legalization business for marijuana, so I'm not exactly sure what the future will hold for the pot smokers.

I've smoked on the roof before and then I fell back into my house, my mom saw the red eyes on my face before I threw out the blunt. I told my mom I was tired and she just told me not to play Grand Theft Auto late at night.
If I was caught, my ass would've been beaten.

My cousin once brought cough syrup and made lean, my aunt caught him and beat the crap out of him.

Stay away from lean, kids.

Duh! Off course parents would not let their own daughters and sons smoke weed. But it's also their own choice.

6 Watching porn

Not a porno movie but it is an adult movie. I watched "Showgirls", a 1995 movie about topless showgirls in Vegas. I knew that my mom didn't approve of this so I decided to turn it on and watch when she's out of the room. She walked in later and caught me watching it and then soon she told me that it's too inappropriate for it and that I shouldn't be watching those types of movies.

by the way I am 26.

I watched Showgirls and The Hangover. They both have nudity in it so when my mom enters and there's a nude scene coming up. I just skip to that part and tell my mom that it's buffering.

Getting caught do anything sex-related is always embarrassing.

7 Getting into their stuff

I'm nosy, so when I'm worried about my parents, I go through their stuff to see what's going on. If my mom caught me, she'd just get mad. If my dad caught me, he'd kill me. That's why I do it when they're not home.

8 Getting naked

When I was nine or ten years old the friend of my dad's girlfriend saw me naked because I stupidly went downstairs for the pool and forgot to put on my bathing suit. It was so embarrassing. What made it worse was how my dad's girlfriend said "You know better!" to me.

Sometimes I get changed in my room, and it annoyed me to death every time my parents came in without knocking.

My parents accidentally walk in on me changing/showering sometimes. It's so embarrassing

Its fine if your a girl

9 Breaking your own stuff

Yeah overheat, and not be up to date, by cleaning your files, and then buy a new computer that sucks.

They'll rat on you regardless of whose stuff gets broken.

10 Wasting electricity

It's cloudy/raining outside during the day, I turn the lights on to see/read better and my mom is like "you're wasting electricity! Turn it of! "

My youngest brother does this all the time, yet my parents don't seem to care at all.

By having it on in the middle of the night I've down way too many times.

My parents busted me turning the lights on many, MANY times...

The Contenders
11 Making a mess in the house

Not going to make the same mistake my brother ended up pulling.

12 Singing

Yeah, I don't like it when my parents hear me sing. I don't sound perfect. not even for rock and hip-hop/rap. Some people say that you would sound like an adult at age 17. I am middle-school aged and when I was 10, I was quietly singing a part of Bohemian Rhapsody and my dad recording it. I was embarrassed and I am glad he didn't show it to anyone. And I don't want anyone but my Dad to see videos of me crying for crazy, little to no reasons at mostly age 2 to 5. Hey at least I wouldn't do the stuff at the top 11 because I'm in middle school. - Connor4808

My dad videotaped me singing to a song from some kid show when I was little when I wasn't looking. I felt super embarrassed when he told me. Thank goodness he didn't show it to anyone...

I am usually uncomfortable about singing in front of others although my teacher said that I have a good singing voice.

It's especially worse when you are metal screaming or growling.

13 Seducing inappropriate partners

Happened to me, I was sitting next to my girlfriend once and my cousin gave me a funny look. After my aunt left, my cousin took me for a walk and explained that my girlfriend is a hoe. I always end up dating hoes for some reason.

Better get some protecting otherwise this will come back to haunt you down the path, and before you know you could be on the Maury show lol.

14 Listening to inappropriate music

My overprotective mom won't let me listen to "inappropriate" music but allows my YOUNGER cousins to listen to songs with expletive language in them...

My parents blocked songs with explicit content on my iPod and she blocked my 6 favorite songs so I listen to them on Spotify and YouTube every day!

Not a problem. Most of the music I listen to barely has any swears but when it does, it's usually only an f bomb or two.

That depends on the genre of music in all honesty in the parents acceptance level of all music genres.

15 Talking to yourself

I commentate when playing games but don't like it when people hear me. My mum says my lips randomly move and that's just me talking to the voices in my head, which I believe that for some reason some are real people across the world. I'm weird and offbeat, end of story.

When I was little, my parents would tell me to stop because they think it's weird. I didn't stop, and now I still talk to myself.

I got caught doing this once. My mom gave me a weird look.

I do this all the time.

16 Watching any movie that has sexual content in it

Oh boy. You really do die inside when it happens.

Whenever I'm watching a sex scene with my parents, a part of me dies

17 Watching anime

Every time I watch TV-14 anime, nothing inappropriate happens, but whenever my parents come into the room, the show I'm watching just happens to show or mention inappropriate content like pervy references or cussing. This happened when I watch Mob Psycho 100 on the week of Thanksgiving where it was all fine and stuff, but when my dad came in, characters swore like 5+ times in under 5 minutes with one of them making a pervy reference to girl's butts. That was when he asked me and my sister about what rating it was, and we said it's TV-14. This is a major disadvantage to being permitted to watch TV-14 shows to me.

My parents know I like anime, and they don't really mind. But I mainly watch comedy/slice-of-life anime and rom-com anime, which have a LOT of scenes that could be taken out of context. They'd even tell me off if they saw 2 characters kissing, because apparently I'm still a child (I'm 18 by the way). And God forbid they catch me watching a beach episode.

My dad likes anime so I'm able to.
But I'm afraid that they'll catch me because I don't want them to say that 'it's why I'm so slow' but the truth is anime made me a better person!

Not that much of a crime since Anime is allowed in the household... not the biggest fan, but its not that bad as some make it out to be.

18 Staying up past your bedtime

I stayed up twelve minutes past my bedtime, and my dad forced me to stay up until 4 a.m. cleaning! Then, I can't take any naps, even though I'm so sleepy! Like, who does this to their children?

Ha, imagine my mom walking in on me on my phone at 4am, I'd be grounded for so long.

It sometimes happens to me. I can't sleep in Christmas Eve and Vacation Trips because Xmas was my favorite holiday. I don't really care about the presents. and Yesterday at 1:30, My youngest Cousin, Jacob was here so I had to play with him. and Go to my uncle's house for swimming. And we went back at 11:00 >:( because I haven't finished my Canvas yet! So I looked on my phone. - Connor4808

I do this every day. Only my dad cares though

19 Drawing “inappropriate” pictures

Here's a weird story of mine. In middle school I hung around with this geek who wrote weird fanfiction comic strips of famous kids shows with stupid hilarious drawings. I got a bit of inspiration to do so in my spare time at school but forgot to remove it from my pants this one time. My mom then found an unfinished story of mine and I just sort of flipped out at her and left the house for a day, but she understood it wasn't really offensive or anything so I was invited back in.

Once I drew a penis on the teachers' head as a prank. I got suspended for school for a month.

Once I drew a harmless picture of me as a 2 year old in a diaper and my mom was like "why are you drawing that? "

20 Twerking

More like "Watching twerking videos".

Nice picture by the way...

Imagine twerking in 2019

Only losers twerk.

Don't know how

21 Wasting water

Imagine running the sink for a couple of hours... then a week later the water bill is up high gee I wonder what acts you pulled this time.

My parents complain that I shower long, yet my mom and sister showers last EVEN LONGER!

22 Stealing their stuff

Once I tried to "steal" money from my parents as a joke and my mom was mad at me but my dad knew that I was joking all along.

My dad had this giant bag of Starburst jelly beans in a drawer in his room, and I used to always steal them.

Such as wealth which ends up losing trust when being left alone.

23 Watching mature TV shows

When I was SIX I watched South Park. Not joking. My dad knew and LET us watch it then said "don't tell mum". My dad is one of those parents who lets their kids do whatever.

I get this one since they do attack pop culture in ruthless aggression fashion where it works really well, but at times way controversial methods.

I watch South Park a lot. My mom would've destroyed me if she found out about how dirty that show is.

I really want to watch this show, but Mom doesn't let me. I even got to the point where one of the items on my christmas list was for mom to let me watch South Park. - Blaze

24 Watching parody videos

My mum always asks "what do you watch on youtube" in that voice as if she knew exactly what videos you saw. Why the heck would my mum be interested in a youtube channel about pokemon cards and cutting up Elemental Monkeys and Hawluchas

But Bart Baker's parody of Anaconda is educational, Mom!

She'd kill me if she knew I were watching Bart Baker.

My mom called me "racist" because I was watching Asian parody videos (eg. "Vietnam is My City by Aznromeo" and "Things Asian Parents Do"). I am Asian, by the way.

25 Bullying

My mom doesn't like it when I "terrorize" my little cousins.

When they were younger they would constantly annoy me on purpose and whenever I yell at them to get them to stop they would cry and I would get in trouble for "being mean" to them.

I wasn't terrorizing them. I was trying to teach them a lesson! >:(
