21 People Confess The Scariest Situation They’ve Ever Been In


I was a wee lad of 14 years old in the attic (where our PC was located) playing RuneScape and “making homework”. Later in the night, around 10pm I heard some noises downstairs and saw a light turned on. I figured my parents had returned from visiting family. A man that looked a lot like my uncle started coming up the stairs slowly, but he wasn’t my uncle. We made eye contact for a solid 5 seconds just in complete shock – he bolted back downstairs. I grabbed the nearest thing I could use as a weapon which were some scissors I had near me, I was screwed basically. I can’t remember how much time had passed but I didn’t have a mobile phone with me at the time – I was absolutely petrified this entire time. And then I saw my aunt log on to Runescape (my aunt, dad and cousin all played as well at the time). I told her what happened, she called the cops and within 10 minutes everyone was home.


Okay, so I’m at a house party, in a rather shitty neighborhood. One guest (call him Kyle) is selling and smoking meth, along with his girlfriend Beth. Beth is around 6 months pregnant, drinking, smoking, so we know that she makes great choices, but Beth decides to beat up a girl with a cast on her leg. Hair pulling, slapping, eventually leads to the girl in the cast punching Beth in her stomach. A cry for Kyle rings out, Kyle however is to busy trying to show his underdeveloped cock to a group of 16 year olds at the party. Kyle departs in a meth fueled haze, pants around his ankles, he grabs his gun, leaves the jeans behind and rushes to help. Kyle talks to Beth, and sets out to shoot the girl in the cast. She however had made her escape at this time, but Kyle still scoured the place looking for her, while beth started to bleed fairly badly. Sirens rang out, this is unfortunately where my part ends, as being the wily 17 yearold that I was, I ran for it. Barely escaping to my car, and making a very slow get away, trying to be undetected.


When I was ten I woke up around midnight to severe pain and crawling sounds in my left ear. I yelled for my father but he wasn’t around. He had gone out to a bar with a friend after I went to sleep. I spent a long time screaming in pain and trying to look into my ear on the mirror and pouring water into it. Turns out a cockroach had laid an egg in my ear and they were hatching that night. The empty egg came out about a week later. I had roach legs come out of my ear for years while cleaning it with qtips.


When I was 5 1/2 months pregnant and was taken from work at gun point and raped repeatedly for 3 hours. He kept pointing the gun at me and saying he was going to kill me. He has 5 class x felonies now. Trial starts in a month.
