These Sleepovers Were Horror Stories

There's nothing like signing up for a night of fun only to experience a night of horror. These are the absolute WORST sleepovers imaginable. From chilling accidents to awkward situations, these Redditors rehash the most disastrous slumber parties gone so, so wrong.

1. Door Jam

My wife's older sister and that sister's friend were chasing each other around the house when they were around ten years old. They were running in a circle set up where you go from a door off the kitchen into the yard and back through a sliding glass door to the living room. The friend was chasing the sister, and the sister slammed the sliding glass door shut.

The house was old, so this was not safety glass. The friend ran full speed into the glass door, going straight through the glass. It was like a scene from a horror movie. There was massive bleeding, and they had to go to the hospital. I can't imagine being either parent at the end of that phone call.

2. Lights Out!

When I was about 14, a new kid had moved to our school and invited a bunch of other random kids and me to his house in an attempt to make friends. All six of us had to cram into this kid's tiny bedroom. There was barely enough space to sleep, but his mom said we had to spend the entire sleepover there. So, we piled up in our sleeping bags and prepared for an incredibly uncomfortable night.

He barely spoke to any of us and basically played Digimon on his PlayStation while we messed around to entertain ourselves. His mom bought us a big plate of chips and nuggets, and, for some reason, we decided to shove the stuff we didn’t eat through the cracks in the bare floorboards as he didn’t want his mom to see leftovers. But that wasn't even close to the worst part.

This kid also had a younger brother, who was desperate to be involved. He kept coming into the room mimicking his older brother. Everything he did he copied to the point where it was creepy. He then followed his older brother into the toilet and somehow peed down his older brother's leg. After, a fight broke out between the two, and their mom began screaming and kicking them as they rolled around on the floor. She took the lightbulbs and game controllers and demanded we all sleep. It was only around 8 PM.

3. Open And Shut Case

My friend and I went for a walk in the woods with his Jack Russell terrier. Every time I was around his dog, my eyes would itch, so I figured I must have been mildly allergic to his dog. After about an hour in the woods, we made our way back to his house. We got inside, did the usual check for ticks, and sat down to play video games.

Within about five minutes of being in the house, my friend looked at me and said something along the lines of, “Dude, what is with your eyes?” I checked myself in the mirror—and I started screaming. My eyes were ALMOST SWOLLEN SHUT!!! It turned out that on our excursion, I had touched poison ivy. When we got to the house, my eyes started itching from the I rubbed my eyes. It was HORRIBLE. My dad picked me up immediately, and the sleepover was ruined.

4. Prank Gone Wrong

I was in the bathroom. I could overhear whispers, so I knew they were going to play a prank on me. I thought the prank would be that they would unexpectedly break the door open while I was in there. So, to counter-surprise them, I decided to only pretend I was on the toilet, instead, holding the door shut by pushing against it with both palms.

However, that was not their intended prank. They thought I was on the toilet, far from the door. So their idea was to have a sword thrust unexpectedly through the door. I'll never forget the horror that ensued. The sword went through the door and then straight through the palm of my right hand as well. Blood went everywhere. The sword went in and out quickly.

I have vague memories of turning the sink on and wrapping my hand with hand towels even while blood spurted throughout the room. I don't remember getting in the car, but apparently, I was driven to the emergency room.

5. A Flood Of Embarrassment

I clogged the toilet at a friend's house in the middle of the night. It started to overflow and there was no plunger in sight. I woke up my friend, who then woke his parents. Turned out that the water that had overflowed had soaked through the floor and was dripping into the kitchen. His mom started trying to collect the dripping water downstairs while his dad was on clog duty.

I never saw a plunger that night. What I did see was my friend's dad elbow deep in the water pulling out a wad of waste and toilet paper. The floor was covered. We had to get that cleaned up. More water overflowed. By this time his sister was awake and came to investigate. For that friendship, my toilet disaster was the nail in the coffin: I haven't talked to them in over 20 years.

6. Burning Sense Of Shame

I was staying with my aunt and uncle, my cousin and I were lighting matches in the kitchen and throwing them in the sink to put them out. The head of one flew off and landed in the shelving unit by the sink, still letting off smoke. But when we looked for it, we couldn't find it. Hours later, we were awakened by my aunt telling us to get out of the house because it was on fire.

I watched their house burn to the ground and was terrified to tell them what we'd been doing earlier. I just knew we'd done it. I carried that guilt for years. When I was around 15, which was many years later, I finally told my aunt. She started laughing and after realizing I'd been thinking this the whole time, hugged me and explained it had been the wiring in the back bedroom.

I was an adult before I finally understood, after learning about how fire marshals investigate fires that it wasn't just an assumption they'd made and could let go of that guilt. So I guess, technically, the most screwed-up thing I did at a sleepover was torment myself for years over something that was never my fault.

7. Pizza Party Pukefest

I had a sleepover for my birthday. Several girlfriends were sleeping over. We woke up, and one of my friends, the shy, quiet one, was gone. She had vanished from her sleeping bag. There was also a mysterious dried substance on my best friend's sleeping bag. She said, “What’s this?” She scraped and picked it off. It was vomit. But it was so much worse than we'd thought.

There was vomit EVERYWHERE. My mom had to take the missing friend home in the middle of the night because she woke up and threw up all over herself. She tried to cover her mouth, so she had it all over her hands. She had gone up the stairs to get to the bathroom and touched the walls the whole way up. When she got to the bathroom, she wiped her face on the hand towel.

She left a perfect face imprint of puke on it. It was a real work of art. The towels were stained from green to orange. She had also thrown up in another girl's shoes. The real tragedy was that my mom had to clean it all up in the middle of the night after driving her home. When my tired mom threw her sleeping bag in the washer, she accidentally set it for a small load. So, when she handed it back to the other mom later, chunks of vomit fell out. She said, “You could tell it had to have been a pizza party".

8. For The Love Of Cheese

We found Kraft Singles in the fridge and put one over the nose and mouth of a friend of ours who fell asleep on the couch before everyone else. And then the unthinkable happened. It immediately softened and molded into a cheesy seal over his face, and he stopped breathing. We all freaked out for a solid 10 seconds, very quietly, until we heard him make a chewing sound.

This legend smelled cheese and took immediate action despite being unable to breathe. He just straight up ate a mouth-sized hole into the cheese unconsciously. We then proceeded to plaster the entire package onto his face one at a time and watch him hoover up the cheese slices in order to not perish by suffocation.

9. A Spicy Sleepover

We were all young girls and everyone else had fallen asleep except for me, so I decided I would play a prank on them. I got up and shook a good amount of black pepper into my hand and went to several of the girls and held it under their noses. What I was thinking would happen was they would wake up sneezing and be like, “Hey! That was silly!” I was horribly mistaken.

Instead, they ended up waking up crying because they inhaled pepper, and turns out, black pepper being inhaled into a sensitive orifice can really sting. The girls cried so hard that my parents woke up and I had to explain the whole innocent idea behind my scheme.

10. He Spilled The Beans

When we were growing up, one of our close friends at the time had to wear diapers because a car crash had left him totally incontinent. We knew about it, and it was fine. Our friend group was really close, so we were used to his accidents and had sleepovers with him all the time. However, one night, something did not sit well with him.

At around 2 AM, we all woke up to the smell of death. The poor kid had absolutely unleashed everything in his body so bad that it spilled out onto my bed. We were all gagging and trying hard not to upset him over it, but it was just so bad. The combination of embarrassment and the sheer scale of the mess sent him over the edge.

He ran out to call his mom to pick him up while the rest of us had to evacuate my room. My mom was passed out, so I had to gather my sheets and take them to the laundry room while my three other friends picked out spots in the living room to crash. I told him he was able to take a shower while he waited for his mom, but he was too upset, so he waited outside in that horrid squalor. We didn't see him for a few days after that, but when we did, everything went back to normal. We never brought it up at any other sleepovers, but I'm sure it was always on his mind.

11. A Scary Situation

I was around 13 years old when me and some others went to a friend’s farmhouse for a sleepover weekend. The farm was huge but at night it was pretty scary. Anyways we go to bed, and, a few hours later, someone wakes me up telling me to stay quiet. I look up and see one of my friends under the moonlight standing still holding a sharp object.

After a while he says, “Give me my toy back, James". He was using a child’s voice straight out of horror movies and we were all paralyzed with fear. He wasn’t pointing the sharp object at any of us but just the combination of the scene made us freak out. He was clearly sleepwalking and after a few moments went back to bed. We took the object and hid it.

The morning after, we told him what happened and asked who was James and he says, “Oh yeah, I sleepwalk sometimes. James was a mean guy at my old school that completely destroyed me and I hate that dude". We’re still friends to this day but he was never invited again for a single sleepover.

12. What A Life Saver

In elementary school, I got invited to my crush’s house. While it wasn’t a sleepover, we were hanging out all day. She gave me a Life Savers candy. I thought it was the gummy ones, not the hard ones. I didn’t like the flavor, so I tried to swallow it whole. I started choking on it, and her older sister had to do the Heimlich maneuver on me. I spewed the candy and a gloop of esophageal mucus the size of a slice of bread all over her kitchen floor. I was so embarrassed I never spoke to her again.

13. It’s Like Waving

My childhood best friend had two younger sisters, their ages each two years apart. So we were 11, the middle sister was nine, the youngest sister was seven. We snuck into the youngest sister's room (who was a notoriously heavy sleeper), and loosely tied a string around her wrist, then tied the other end to the ceiling fan. We then turned the fan on low.

Her arm was slowly helicoptering in circles while she slept. Their mom made the rounds to check on all of us kids a few minutes later and started cracking up when she saw. She told us to make sure we took it back down before too long, and we assured her we planned to. She went back to bed, and must have told her husband...who most certainly did NOT find the humor in it.

We both got grounded for months.

14. We Picked The Wrong Game To Play

When I was ten, my two cousins, who were 11 and 13, and I had a sleepover. We were playing hide and seek tag in the house. My older cousin was chasing my younger cousin when my younger cousin stepped on a toothpick while running. It went through the bottom of his foot and pushed the top of his foot skin up like a tent. It was buried so deep you could no longer see the toothpick. The image of it still haunts me.

The sleepover immediately stopped, and both my cousins had to go to the emergency room.

15. Unwanted Wake-Up Call

So, I have a history of sleep talking and walking issues, and they’re especially heightened when I’m stressed. I don’t like being away from home so sleepovers are a recipe for disaster for me. Lo and behold, I woke up one morning after my first sleepover to the horrifying news from my friend that I had started sleepwalking in the middle of the night.

I also yelled “KARATE CHOP” over and over and proceeded to ruthlessly swing my arms into my friend's stomach, effectively waking her up out of sound sleep. We were eight, this was the first time I slept over at her house, and I had never told her about my sleepwalking problems. She still makes fun of me about it to this day.

16. A Recipe For Disaster

I was invited to a birthday sleepover party for a kid in my class when I was in third grade. I barely knew the kid, but my mom said it would be nice if I went because he didn't have many friends. I was about to find out why. When I arrived at the house, the enclosed front porch was full of excrement. To be honest, I'm not sure it was a dog's or a human's.

The smell immediately made me sick, and I asked the kid's mother if she could call my mom to come pick me up because I felt sick. She refused and said, "I'm not going to do that, you just got here. That would be ridiculous". The next thing I know, me and the other kids are sitting on the floor of the kitchen eating pizza. We were required to finish three large pizzas because the mom spent all day making them.

It was immediately followed by cake and ice cream. Afterward, I again asked the kid's mom if she would call my mom to pick me up. She refused. We were then told to go outside to go sledding while she watched movies. We were not allowed to come back in until about 10:00 pm. When we finally came back inside, my stomach was quite upset about being force-fed pizza and sweets, followed by being repeatedly sent down a large hill in the dark.

When I proceeded to throw up in the house's only toilet, I was yelled at for messing up the mother's night and throwing up in her toilet.

17. Party Streamer

A male friend of mine got highly intoxicated and started bawling about a girl we both knew wouldn't give him the time of day. The entire group of us ended up sleeping on the living room floor without pillows or blankets while listening to the host and his girlfriend getting it on all night. The same guy got up TWICE in the middle of the night to pee on the carpet about four feet from my head. I never slept over after a big party again.

18. Shell Shocked

My friend got pet turtles about two weeks before we had a sleepover. They thought you could just put them in a tub of water with no heat lamp, sand, or foliage. It was the middle of winter, and they didn't have good heating. They froze. They had been deceased for a few hours while we had drinks and played cards. They didn't even bury them. They threw them in the trash. I did not stay the night for many years to come.

19. Wrong Time, Wrong Place

I was around 10 at the time at a fourth of July cookout at my uncle's house. Everyone’s having a good time, fireworks, grill going, all the good fourth of July stuff. So my cousin breaks out a bag of marshmallows for us to start roasting and obviously nothing capitalizes on a cookout like making s’mores, though we never ended up eating any.

No sooner than we get the marshmallows on the sticks, we hear an ominous sound. All sorts of sirens start blaring. So, three of us, ages between 10-15 go running through the woods towards his neighbor’s house to discover that it is, in fact, on fire. I have no idea how the fire started or really anything that happened in regards to that family or their possessions.

But what I will never forget is, what I assume to have been, the woman who lived there look mortified when she saw three young boys standing next to her burning home holding marshmallows on sticks.

20. A Brief Lapse In Judgment

I was at a friend's house with a few kids for a birthday party and sleepover. We were going to eat some burgers then eat cake and play NES games. We all ate burgers and chips in the living room while watching a movie and were having a good time. I went into the kitchen to get some more soda and when I opened the fridge, I saw that it wasn't a cake, but cupcakes. That's when I completely lost it.

I have no idea what came over me, but I grabbed the tray of cupcakes, opened it, and just stood there eating them. I had to have eaten like 20 of them, I swear. Realizing what I had done, and also realizing that they were probably wondering where I was, I took the empty tray and just left with it. I got on my bike and went home.

As soon as I got home, I threw up…probably because I'd just eaten 10,000 calories of chocolate and pure sugar. My mom asked me why I was home and I just said, "I didn't feel good". My friend never mentioned it and we didn't speak of it for the remaining years we stayed in contact. I have since resolved that if I ever see him again the first thing I'm going to say is, "Jake, I ate the cupcakes".

21. Unsightly Finger Painting

When I was around 10 years old, I was staying over at a friend’s house. I woke up in the middle of the night to go to the restroom and on the way, I stepped in a big pile of dog doo. They had a new puppy and it wasn’t yet potty-trained I guess. Anyways, in my still half-asleep zombie state, I reached down and removed the poop from my foot and I wiped some off on the wall.

Again I was still half asleep. I make it to the restroom and wash up then stumble back to bed. The next morning we are awoken by my friend’s mom screaming, “Who made this mess? Who smeared it on the wall?!” Of course, I don’t say a word and my buddy yelled that it wasn’t him. The mother assumed we were innocent because we were old enough to know better.

When my friend’s little brother walked in she immediately accused him. She then starts yelling at him. I will never forget his cries of “I can’t even reach that high!” falling on deaf ears while getting wrecked by his mom.

22. Stuck In A Wet Spot

When I was around ten years old, I slept over at a friend's house, and we shared a queen bed. I woke up in the middle of the night, and my friend had peed the bed and moved to the floor but failed to wake and tell me. I rolled to the spot and woke up because of the cold wetness on my side. I went to the washroom to wash up, and as I was walking in the dark, I felt the floor was soaking wet.

I turned on the light to discover his plastered dad had peed all over the floor. I couldn’t get out of there fast enough in the morning.

23. Mixology Mess

At the tender age of about 10, I mixed up a concoction of whatever my parents had in their kitchen. I recalled making a mixture of fish sauce, tamarind paste, sugar, lime, sprite, and pepper flakes. This drink instantly became a hit with my siblings and cousins, and they all kept asking for more. Each mixture was slightly different depending on my scientific approach.

Needless to say, some woke up with stomach pains while others, like myself, felt fine. Our parents were all freaking out, thinking it was the food they made. Not one kid uttered who the culprit was at the time, or to this day. I was also not allowed to make mixtures after that.

24. A Failed Heist

My parents hosted a sleepover party for my tenth birthday. In classic 90s kid fashion, we had spent the evening comparing our Pokémon card collections and showing off our best cards. Then we played video games, ate pizza, and watched movies until we all passed out in sleeping bags strewn about the living room. It would have been a solid time, except that, when I woke up, I noticed something troubling.

My Pokémon card binder wasn't where I had left it. I eventually found it, and as the other kids all woke up and started munching their breakfast donuts, I freaked out flipping through the binder finding that all of my favorite cards had seemingly vanished. Kangaskhan? Gone. Double Colorless Energy? Missing. Holographic Charizard? Nowhere to be seen.

Bare plastic sleeves remained in place of my treasured possessions, and I was devastated. My mom noticed me panicking, and when I showed her my looted binder, she went full mama bear. She got this crazy look in her eyes as she stared down all of my friends. She started angrily scouring the house, tossing aside pizza boxes, flipping sleeping bags, digging under couch cushions, the whole nine yards.

Eventually, while moving one of the sleeping bags, she sees a handful of cards fall out from inside. She takes a closer look, and, what do you know, it's every single card I had lost. She did the proper mom thing and announced to the whole lot of us that someone had tried to take something from the house, but that if the attempted thief came forward to her in private to apologize, their parents wouldn't have to know.

The little rogue must have done just that, as no more was mentioned of it that day.

25. The Sticky Consequences

The birthday girl was the sweetest thing you'd ever meet. Someone had given her a little plastic tube of gum and she left it in her room for later. I was alone when I found it. I was a little meanie at the time, and I put one of the gumballs in my mouth. Then another, and another, and suddenly the thing was practically empty.

From another room, I heard her ask her friend if she wanted some gum and they came bouncing in. I hid under my sleeping bag, pretending to be asleep and covering my mouth, which was now obviously loaded with gum. That poor girl opened her tube, gasped, and was so upset that I would have cried from guilt. I didn't though, because I was a nasty brat with no soul.

Bedtime comes, and I thought I'd gotten away with it—but my greediness came back to haunt me in the worst way. We all go to sleep, me with gum still in my mouth. In the morning there is an enormous wad of gum sticking my hair to the pillow. Everyone knew. I was caught. My friend's mom spent like half an hour trying to get it out with peanut butter. I was not invited back to their house.

Dumbest liesShutterstock

26. Mayhem In The Mansion

I was invited to a sleepover party by a girl I barely knew. She was a popular girl, and we just randomly became friends. She lived in a giant house that was a straight-up castle. We spent the night playing in the empty rooms her family never used for anything with her three giant dogs. It was great until one of the dogs knocked over a display case containing a bunch of glass.

We didn’t see the glass explosion, but we saw the aftermath. Her giant moose of a dog was running around with glass in his paws—there was blood everywhere. The girl and a couple of others fainted, and one threw up. It was a disaster of a night, and everyone ended up going home. I saw the girl a few days later, and she said her dog was ok, just had badly-cut paws.

27. Is This A Thing People Do?

I was spending the night at my best friend’s house in ninth grade, and her other best friend was there too. I was friends with the other girl as well, but not best friends. Well, the two of them liked to get into some crazy things together that I wasn’t into because I was a fairly tame teenager at this point in time. We all spent the night doing normal fun sleepover things until my bestie and the other girl came up with a "great" idea.

They wanted to dress up in giant sweatshirts, ruffle their hair, and smear dirt all over their faces, before sneaking out her window and standing on a corner down the street to pretend to be homeless and collect money. I refused and spent the next couple of hours hanging out with my best friend’s older brother and his pet snake. We stayed friends for a bit longer but I didn’t spend the night at her house anymore.

28. Nailed It!

My cousin was staying the night at my house. My dad was changing the railing on our deck and had 2x4s nailed up temporarily until he replaced the railings. My cousin leaned on the wood, fell off the deck, and got two nails embedded in her back, all the way to the wood. Then on the way to the emergency room, my mom got rear-ended. We didn’t really have a sleepover after that.

29. Missing In Action

We decided that we were all going to climb onto my back to see how much I could lift. We were all about ten at the time, so I couldn’t lift much. When the second person got on, it was too heavy, and we toppled over. At first, we were all laughing, but then one of the girls that fell said her legs were stinging. We looked at her thigh, and a chunk of it was straight-up missing.

She had fallen onto one of the glass bowls, broke it, and cut a chunk out of her. There was no blood or anything. The flesh was just gone. We told the parents, and she was rushed off to the hospital.

30. The Makings Of A Ritual Sacrifice

My friend's neighbor was mean to my friend and his family, so one night, a bunch of us decided to go into his yard and disassemble this target practice deer he had. We proceeded to put the pieces of the fake deer in different corners of his property, but the star of the show was the head, which we stuck in front of his door.

When he opened it, the fake deer face would be staring right at him. After that, we took some old beanie babies and set them on fire in the neighbor's backyard, and hung a few from trees.

31. A Mean Streak

We got tipsy and went streaking on the beach at night. We were all guys and it just seemed like the thing to do. One of my friends couldn’t find his clothes after returning from the ocean but had a change of clothes at our friend’s house. We left him on the pitch-black beach and vowed we would return and find him with his clothes. Well, we had to mess with him, it’s what grade school guys did.

So we waited a couple of hours at the house and then ventured out to find him. The guy was raging mad. Turns out, he had encountered multiple midnight walkers and had to retreat into the ocean to avoid being seen.

32. As Cold As Ice

It was winter, and I was sleeping at a friend’s house. Before bed, we decided to water down his backyard so we could ice skate the next day. Being too excited, we snuck downstairs around 5 AM so we could get to it, only to realize his mom had locked all the doors and taken the keys to stop us from doing exactly what we were doing.

We decided to climb out of a very tiny, very high window. When we got outside in our pajamas, we realized that it was absolutely freezing out. We were then locked outside. We were out there in the freezing cold for about two hours before his mom woke up and saw us trapped in the garden.

33. I Was Full Of It

I was in middle school, sleeping over at a friend's house, when the worst pain of my life started in my abdomen. I thought my appendix burst, or I don’t know what. I woke their mom up, and she drove me home instead of to the hospital. It turned out that I was just constipated. I’m still friends with the family over a decade later and they still remember that night very clearly. It’s pretty embarrassing.

34. I Don’t Know What Possessed Her

In 4th grade, my friend was supposed to sleep over. I lived in an apartment building. My apartment was on the second floor, and my grandparents lived on the first floor. My grandma often picked me up from school at around 3 PM, and my parents would come home at around 5 PM. So, I would chill for a few hours until my parents got home.

My best friend and I were super excited to have this sleepover. We got to my grandma's apartment, and I told my friend we were going to have to wait a bit for my parents. This was when stuff started to go down. We were talking for a while in the living room, doing fourth-grade things, when out of NOWHERE, she dropped to the ground and started shaking.

I thought she was having a seizure, but no. She then sat up very straight and pretended not to know who I was and to be POSSESSED. She started trying to hit me and was talking in this voice that was super cringey. I was absolutely terrified. She scratched me a few times, and I told her, “Please stop. It’s not funny anymore".

My grandma heard the weird noises she was making and my sad pleas for her to stop and called me to the kitchen. I told her everything that happened, and my grandma called my friend's grandma and told her she needed to pick her up right then. Then this girl had the nerve to walk into the kitchen and ask what was wrong/why I was upset. I cut her off the following year.

35. A Shot In The Dark

My friend and I were probably both around the age of ten. We were inseparable. If he wasn't sleeping over at my house, I was sleeping over at his. One night we were in his bedroom looking for anything to do besides sleep and, for whatever reason, we both decided it would be fun to chuck things at each other in the dark.

We did this until we ran out of things to throw at each other and then we would turn on the lights and survey what was thrown and look for any signs of damage. Not an inch from my head—stuck solidly into the wall behind where I was sitting—was a protractor. My friend was more concerned with the damage to the wall than how close he came to hitting me with it.

36. Getting Friendly

I had my two best friends sleeping over at my house and we fell asleep in my living room. I woke up in the middle of the night to find one of my friends wasn’t sleeping and I could see the bathroom light was off so I knew she wasn’t in there. I thought maybe she went to go sleep in my room so I got up to check. That's when I stumbled upon the ultimate betrayal.

I heard her giggling and my brother's laughter coming from the computer room. I was horrified, but we were all over the age of eighteen. I pretended to be asleep as they walked out of the computer room and she laid back down and went to sleep. I never said anything to either of them but they dated for a few months until she cheated on him.

37. A Series Of Unfortunate Events

My two friends and I borrowed my grandmother's SUV while at a sleepover during high school. We took it in the middle of the night to go to the dried-up river in the desert to party. We intended to return it before morning, but disaster struck. The engine blew out. We weren't even doing anything dangerous with it, just used it for transportation.

We were stranded in the middle of the desert and had to call more friends to bring out a truck to tow the SUV home in the middle of the pitch-dark night, no lights, four miles on a paved road back to his grandma's house. The truck also broke about a quarter-mile from the house and we pushed both vehicles the rest of the way.

38. It Was A Sobering Sleepover

I was at a birthday sleepover. The birthday boy went with his girlfriend to get us blankets and pillows to sleep on. He never came back, and about five minutes later, we started hearing them going at it. We figured we would just sleep on the floor. Then two girls started puking their guts out, one in the bathroom sink and one just outside the door. I was the soberest and didn’t want to ruin the happy couple's moment. So, I spent the night cleaning up after trashed people and ensuring they didn't hurt each other or themselves.

39. It Hit Him Like A Ton Of Bricks

My friend was playing with my younger brother, who was about three or four. She was chasing him around the house and pushed him a little too hard. He fell face-first onto the corner of our brick fireplace. He had a massive gash on his forehead, and while we were in the car taking him to the hospital, I remember his little voice asking my mom if his eyeball was in. It was the most horrific night of my life. Luckily, he was able to get stitches and was fine.

40. Even God Couldn’t Save This Sleepover

I was best friends with this kid in elementary school. A few years later, he, I, and some other friends all tried to reconnect over the summer and planned to have a sleepover at his house. We were halfway into the evening when his mom came downstairs and said we had been led astray and started reading us verses from the Bible.

Our friend started crying, telling her to go away, but she continued. So, he ran to his room and didn't come out. We didn't really know what to do, but after about half an hour, his mom told us to leave. That was the last time we spoke. We went to the same high school and saw each other in the halls but never said a word.

41. Expected Consequences

I was a bedwetter until middle school. I didn't hang out with people that much as a kid but got invited to a sleepover at one of my classmates' houses that I was sort of friends with but we still weren’t that close. I decided to go because my best friend was going, but she decided not to go at the last minute and I didn't know until I got there.

It was kind of awkward for me because I didn't really know that many people there and guessed it, I wet the bed. I was mortified and woke up the host's mom because I didn't know what to do. She helped me clean it up and I was so embarrassed, I just left and walked home.

42. Midnight Snack

When I was in second grade, I had my first sleepover with my best friend. My sister, who was three years older than me was also having a sleepover with her friend in the other room. My sister’s friend showed me her folding lipstick thing that had a mirror on it. She let me use it and I noticed that it smelled really good. That's when I came up with the most messed-up idea.

I snuck into their room in the middle of the night, while everyone was asleep, took it, and started eating the lipstick. I then took the remains and somehow she never noticed.

43. At Least He Apologized

In high school, our group of friends would get together and have a sleepover on Halloween—every Halloween. Well one day, while we were around 17-19 we decided to add booze to the mix. Most of us could handle drinking, but one guy was sitting on the floor and just staring at his hands. He then proceeded to vomit all over himself and the floor out of nowhere.

He looked up at the guy who owned the house and said, “Sorry man,” and then kept looking at his hands.

44. They Were Coupled Up-chuck

My friends went out drinking and invited some girls over. Things were getting steamy between two couples. My closest friend, who wasn’t coupled up, was way too tipsy. He fell down from one of the bunk beds, puked all over the first couple, and then walked over to the other couple and puked over them too. I still don't know if he did it on purpose or if it was an accident.

45. The Great Flood

When I was in college, my friend's brother lost his life in a bad car accident. About five of us spent the night at his house after the funeral to keep him company. We were almost all set up with air mattresses. One of the guys went to the bathroom at night and flooded the toilet. He shoved a towel under the door crack and called it a day, then went back to sleep. I woke up to general panic and a layer of dirty water. I felt so bad for his parents, who had lost their youngest son and also had to deal with that.

46. She Bared It All

When I was seven years old, I went to sleep over at a friend's house. We had played outside all day, then decided to take a shower together in our bathing suits. She accidentally pooped in the shower while I was turned the other way. I was beyond grossed out, but she claimed her stomach hurt, and she couldn't help it. Sure, I was seven, so whatever.

Later that night, I had finished getting ready for bed and was getting ready to lay down. We were sleeping in her bed. She pulled back the covers to show me that she was in the buff and told me she wanted me to sleep without any clothes on as well. I immediately left the room and had her mom call my mom to pick me up. I never saw her again.

47. Spy In Training

My best friend at the time had a slumber party and invited five girls including me and her cousin. I didn’t know any of the other girls but they all knew each other. I had never met her cousin before. I hadn’t ever even talked to her before but she had all the other girls in the bathroom talking about something. My friend came out and I asked what was going on and she told me her cousin didn’t like me.

I was already a kid that didn’t have a lot of friends and just wasn’t very outgoing. Thankfully I wasn’t bothered by this so much as I was super confused, because, again, I had never met the cousin before. Instead of revenge though, I did something creepier. All night, any time anyone left the living room, I would excuse myself and follow them, attempting to remain unseen.

If they said anything on their errand out of the room, I wrote it down in a journal I had brought.

48. The Graceful Sleeper

I was probably 10 years old and was invited to sleep over with the popular girls which was not a thing that normally happened for me but since my friend was friends with them, it just kind of happened this night. They were all so pretty and skinny and feminine and elegant. When we went to sleep, I was placed right next to the girl I thought was the prettiest, nicest girl.

She literally slept like some kind of weird feminine goddess. I’ve never to this day seen someone sleep so elegantly. Once everyone went to sleep I just cried all night like a baby while having to basically stare at this poor girl in the face because I felt so ugly around them. In the morning I was so exhausted from crying all night that I guess I slept in a bit later than everyone else.

By the time I got to the table for breakfast with them, all the other girls had taken all the donuts and not left me one. Her parents gave me some cereal and everyone just kind of sat there and watched me eat, it was an awful experience.

49. Backbed Blunder

A friend of mine had a remote-controlled vehicle tied to a rope that we were hanging out the back of his mom's truck while she drove. There were eight of us kids in the truck bed. A car went by as we rounded a turn and ran over the RC car, then stopped while on the rope. The rope was wrapped around my friend's hands, and another's leg.

His mom thought we were being boisterous boys yelling and smacking the back window of the truck bed window. She kept driving for two minutes before she stopped. He almost lost his fingers. I remember seeing it burn through his finger, seeing blood, and his tendons. The other kid’s leg just had rope burns. Everyone went home as he went to the hospital. He didn't lose his fingers but had a hard time closing his hand from then on.

50. He Tried To Seize Another Opportunity

My friend had a seizure while in my living room. He did not have epilepsy, and we still don’t really know why it happened. An ambulance was called to my house, and he was carried out of the house. I was asleep through all of it, and no one woke me up. I got up the next day, wondering where my friend had gone. My mom then told me what had happened. He was fine and asked if he could come over the following weekend to redo the sleepover.

51. Fiction Becomes Reality

I was going to sleep over with some friends of mine when I was in my teens. Unknown to me, they were watching The Ring when I showed up a bit late. At the time, I had long straight hair and was wearing my favorite white jacket. As I got closer, I remembered that they were watching a movie, so I thought I would be considerate. Well, instead, I gave them a scare of a lifetime.

Instead of doing what I usually do and enter the door downstairs, I opted to use the door next to the TV, with big windows next to it, so they could just let me in without missing the movie. I walked up, saw they didn't see me, as there was almost no light outside, and knocked carefully at the glass door while peering in. The girls screamed and then scared the ones next to them to the point where one peed herself and one started crying.

We laugh about it now, but at the time it was a bit messed up.

52. Playing With Fire

I slept over at my buddy's house and brought fireworks and a slingshot. There was a huge field behind his house and, on the other side of the field, was another house that had a party going on. The plan was to shoot firecrackers and flashers at them and watch their reaction. He fired the first one off and it only made it about halfway across the field.

I fired a flasher, confident I could clear the field but fell short. We got scared and ran back inside the house and shut off all the lights. Minutes later there were massive flames that could be seen rising into the air. I had set the field on fire. We panicked and tried to cover things up by waking his parents and saying there was a huge fire outside.

The authorities and the fire department showed up and put the fire out. They immediately knew we had set the fire, but his parents backed us up. We went down to the burn spot the next morning and it was a perfect circle maybe 20 feet across. Decades later I admitted to my parents that we had done it because they never believed our story. They were so disappointed in me.

53. It Was Nerf Or Nothin’

When I was about ten, I had a friend on the block who had every Nerf gun you could imagine. He even had the purple Nerf crossbow that fired these giant yellow darts. All the kids on the street were sleeping over at his place, and naturally, we planned a house-wide Nerf fight. My friend was running down the stairs, and I raised up the crossbow to shoot him.

As soon as I fired, he slipped backward, siding down the last few steps putting his eye in the way of the massive yellow dart I fired at him. His screams of pain ended the Nerf battle pretty quickly. Everyone got sent home, and I was never allowed over to their house again. He had to wear an eye patch for a few months and started wearing glasses after that.

54. It Turned Out To Be A Dangerously Cheesy Night

We went to the store late at night to get some hot Cheetos but forgot the keys to the apartment. It was a tall building, and we couldn't get in. So, we woke up our neighbors at 4 AM to ask if we could climb from their window to ours. Luckily the window was open. They were surprised, but we climbed from their window to ours with multiple bags of hot Cheetos in our hands. We realized that there was a spare key under the doormat at the front door, which we did not think about until we got into the apartment.

55. A Saucy Prank

I woke up in the middle of the night, feeling mischievous. I don't know why, but I'm guessing some demon took over my body. I walked into my friend's bathroom, grabbed a few Q-tips, and then went into the kitchen to grab some habanero hot sauce. I poured hot sauce onto these Q-tips and then inserted them into my friends' ears while they were still asleep.

It took only 20-30 seconds for them to wake up in agonizing pain as they rushed to the bathroom to figure out what was going on. They found out what I did when they saw the Q-tips and were more than infuriated with me. But what's more messed up than that is them deciding to still be my friend after that incident.

56. Unplanned Streaking

When I was a kid, I had both the tendency to take my clothes off in my sleep when I was hot and to sleepwalk. Until I was around 14 I had never sleepwalked at a friend’s house but had taken my clothes off in my sleep. I would just wake up and get dressed again, no problem. However, things would change when I entered my teenage years.

When I was 14 I sleepwalked for the first time ever at a friend’s house and stripped my clothes off in the same night. I woke up completely unclothed, laying on my friend's kitchen table to his dad coming up from the basement, yelling, “Jesus Christ!” and slamming the door closed to go back downstairs. His yelling and slamming the door caused everyone to wake up.

I ran to get back to my friend’s room, his mom caught a glimpse of me running unclothed through the house. Luckily his younger siblings didn’t see me and nobody was upset with me after I told them about the situation.

57. Breakfast Was A Bust

I was hosting a sleepover with about five friends. We were all having a great time. We all went to sleep without any problems. In the morning, my dad and I went to McDonald’s while everyone was sleeping to get breakfast when BOOM. A lady ran a red light and crashed into our car. My dad's knee was fractured, and my eyelid split open. No one had breakfast. That was a great few days in the hospital.

58. I Was Praying For It To End

When I was young, my parents enrolled me in summer church camp for a week. Every year of my three years attending, they tried to have a single night to camp out. The first year, we were rained out by a lightning storm that hit hard. In the third year, I passed out from heatstroke and was sent home early. But the second year was all the wrong ways.

The camping area was in a big valley about ten minutes drive from where the cabins and cafeteria were. For the three girls, they had set up a 12-person tent. It had ventilation slats, all the fancy bells and whistles, and when staked down, the wind hardly ever bent it in half. For the six of us boys and one camp counselor, we were packed into a two-person tent—a cheap blue one that was fine enough for a single person.

We ate campfire-grilled chicken that night. The only counselor watching us thought they knew their stuff but didn't cut open everyone's chicken to make sure it was cooked. Sure enough, one kid got violently sick just before bedtime. We had a spider-infested port-a-potty that had never been moved from the campsite in many, many years.

The person who got sick was puking, pooing, crying, and screaming. The counselor was in tears trying to call the admin office on their radio because it was nightfall and they had misplaced the keys to the bus. We were all forced to bunk with the kid who was sobbing and retching into plastic bags throughout the night. It stunk. The kid wasn't allowed to go home early. Instead, they held him in the nurse's office, and we had “dedicated prayer time” for their recovery.

59. The Omniscient Football Fan

So, me and my friends went out to a small town to our buddy’s uncle’s house to celebrate his high school graduation. There were about 10 of us at least and we were all basically packed into this small basement. Someone brought a bunch of mind-altering substances and we all took some and just tripped out all night.

The uncle of our friend, who none of us had ever met nor knew the name of, was soundly asleep upstairs while we were giggling and goofing around. He had a bunch of football decorations in the basement, but not for any particular team. Just like actual footballs and stuff. We coined him “the football fan". Not a fan of any certain team, just loves a hard-fought game.

We started tripping really hard and for some reason, we got the feeling that he knew what was going on and was just waiting outside of the basement door. The legend of the football fan grew and we kept adding different elements to what his personality might be like, and we started to fear him. We were all afraid to go upstairs and use the bathroom.

We were deep in the bottles that night and ate whatever snacks we could find in the basement. In the morning, we hid all of the filled bottles and the snack packages behind some cans of paint and just left the next morning, afraid to gaze into the eyes of the football fan for fear of him knowing what we did.

60. A Lesson In Road Safety

I had a sleepover with a friend when I was 10, and we decided to hide on the side of the road and throw firecrackers at cars as they drove by. Eventually, we got bored and tried to step it up. Logically, the next best idea was to light one of those ropes of firecrackers and try our luck. The next car coming down the road had its window open.

I seized my opportunity. We lit it and tossed the whole thing in the window and booked it through the woods. Maybe a second or two after it landed in the car, the car came to a screeching stop and the guy got out of the car yelling. We were already too far gone by then to be caught. We made it back home and no one had any idea.

61. We Jumped On The Beanwagon

I was at my friend’s house with his sister and her friend. They had a giant bean bag chair. We were just running around doing kid stuff, jumping on cushions, when one of us jumped on the bean bag. There was a tiny little hole in one of the seams, and about five small styrofoam beads puffed out of it. We all thought that was the most hilarious thing in the world.

So, we took turns jumping on it and watching the tiny beads puff out and float to the ground. Naturally, after every few jumps, the hole would grow bigger. Five beads turned into ten, twenty, thirty, etc. Five minutes later, we had managed to empty a good fourth of the bag onto the basement floor. By that point, we went from letting the hole grow on its own to ripping it bigger ourselves.

As a result, every jump caused a fountain of styrofoam to shoot into the air and scatter all over the floor and us. By the time any adult found us, we had emptied most of the bag into the basement. Our punishment was to clean up the mess with brooms, which wasn’t very effective as the basement was carpeted. At the time, I thought that was very unfair, but now I see it was justified.

62. Sparks Were Flying At This Sleepover

In my junior year of high school, a friend of ours had a sleepover for her birthday. There were about ten of us, and for the most part, we were all having a lot of fun. Since there were so many of us, we were all going to camp out in the backyard with tents, and we wanted to hang up some lights. My best friend was helping set up the lights and holding them as they extended with her bare hands.

One of the bulbs was broken, and for some reason, someone plugged them in and turned them on. Suddenly, a scream tore through the party. It was the girl who'd plugged in the lights. She shrieked that they were electrocuting her. When we unplugged them, she dropped to her knees and started crying. The skin in the middle of her index finger had melted, and she was terrified. She wanted to go home. I went with her and stayed at her place for the night to make sure she was okay. After we left, everyone felt terrible and didn't have much fun.

63. Eggstra Tasty

After prom, a big group of 10 of us stayed over at my best friend’s house. In the morning her parents cooked up a storm of pancakes and hash browns, bacon, and eggs. It was the eggs that got me. I happened to walk in and her mom handed me a big delicious bowl of scrambled eggs. I took them into the living room, thinking they were just for me. NOPE.

I thought that the others would soon get their bowls so I ate all the fluffy, scrambled goodness. Then found out that was supposed to be for everyone and there were no more eggs left. I’d eaten about a dozen scrambled eggs worth. I don’t know how. Maybe I danced too much the night before. Either way, I was ashamed and my friends were left wanting.

64. Hidden Shame

My mom and I were visiting some family friends out of state, with another family that had two brothers in my age group. I’m ashamed to say that, at the time, I was going through a weird kleptomaniac phase. If there was something that I wanted, and I thought I could get away with it, I’d go for it. So, these brothers had some toys that I was really envious of.

I don’t remember why I was the only one around at some point, but I took that time and took their stuff. I’m hazy on the details but apparently, my mom and I went home before they came back, because no one noticed until I was already back home, states away. Their parents called mine and asked if I had “accidentally gone home with any extra things".

It was the nicest way possible of asking if I had filched their stuff. Having stashed those things away already, I said no. Looking back on it, I’m pretty sure that it must have been obvious, but there wasn’t any evidence and I stuck to my lie, so I was never caught or punished for anything.

65. Her Bragging Came Back To Bite Her

When I was in elementary school, the popular girl was having a sleepover. She had been bragging all week about how awesome the party would be, how cute her new puppy was, and made a point to say how everyone was invited, while she had directly told me that I wasn't. When the weekend party finally came around, things happened. On Monday, I saw that everyone was giggling, and the girl looked extremely sullen.

The girl and I were deskmates, and I overheard what happened when she was talking to her friends. Apparently, they left the puppy in the room with them and hadn't let her out while they were doing whatever they were doing. When they settled down for the evening, the kids realized that all the sleeping bags were soaked with pee. I tried so hard not to laugh that it hurt.

66. This Party Was Anything But A Hit

When I was ten, I went to a kid’s house for a birthday party sleepover. There was a piñata and a wooden baseball bat. Another kid was up to “bat” on the trusty piñata. He was blindfolded. He stepped up, took a massive swing, and BOOM—a direct hit. Only, it wasn’t the piñata that he struck. It was a girl’s head. Blood started rushing down her face, and the parents ran over immediately.

The mother started to cry as soon as she saw the girl’s head, and the girl was crying incessantly as well. The dad grabbed the phone and called the girl’s parents and told them they were going to rush her to the hospital and to meet them there. Since there were about nine other kids at the party, the Mom stayed behind while the dad took her.

As soon as the dad left, we all heard crying—but it was coming from the dining room this time. We all rushed into the room and found the birthday boy sobbing in the corner of the room. The mom came in and yelled, “And why are you crying now!?” The boy managed to muster a sniffly response of, “SHE RUINED MY BIRTHDAY!”

67. Cashing In

When I was in sixth grade, I was friends with a girl who was very materialistic and not humble whatsoever. She was also really wealthy and spoiled. She invited me and a few other girls to a sleepover for her birthday. When I went to her closet to change into my pajamas, I noticed there were a lot of fancy designer bags. Considering how young we were, that was very surprising.

I remember opening one of them and finding a small stack of cash, so I took some of it. Probably about 50 dollars in total. She obviously never noticed but I still feel a little bad about it.

68. All’s Well That Ends Well

I was about eight and at my very first sleepover. I couldn’t sleep because I really don’t like not being in my own bed. At about three in the morning or so, I packed my stuff and crawled out from under the garage door that they left cracked open without saying a word to anyone. I walked up a huge hill in my neighborhood, and towards home a few houses down.

I saw headlights coming down the road towards me, so I hid behind my next-door neighbor’s mailbox. It was my dad coming home from work, who was really confused as to why a small child was trying to hide behind a mailbox in the middle of the night. He came over, saw it was me, then grilled me on what I was doing. When I explained, he nodded then carried me the rest of the way home and got me to bed. I love my dad.

69. The Fun Quickly Ran Out

I was at a sleepover when a kid got on the treadmill because he was bored. He kept turning the speed up higher and higher. He was struggling to keep up, and we all found it hilarious...until another kid tried to join in. The problem was that he jumped on the running treadmill while wearing socks, and he immediately slipped and fell.

Everyone was laughing until they realized the kid who fell was screaming. The skin on his knees and calves was getting ripped off due to the treadmill’s speed. He had to be taken to the emergency room. The sleepover wasn’t much fun after that because the parents didn’t trust us enough to leave us alone.

When I was in the fourth grade, I went to spend the night at a childhood friend's house. Her mom and grandma started fighting. We could hear them yelling from outside the home. My friend and her sisters ran in and started screaming as well. The authorities were called, along with my dad. Understandably, I was not allowed back over.

71. Breakfast For One

I was 11 years old when I went rogue at this church lock-in. I found myself on the other end of the building, at the concession stand. There was tomorrow’s breakfast for the unlocking service. There were six boxes of assorted donuts and multiple cases of juice. I made a point to only eat the strawberry glazed donuts. I wasn’t able to eat them all, but I made a huge dent. But that wasn't the worst part.

I even wrapped some in paper towels and hid them around the back offices to pick up in the morning before I left. There was a huge fiasco about it the next morning and everyone accused these brothers who were always fighting. Eventually, someone went out to buy more. However, the brothers weren’t allowed to have and had to sit there hungry through no fault of their own. I’m so sorry guys.

72. My Party Was Trashed

On my tenth birthday, I got to have ten friends spend the night. Around 3 AM, I woke up, and projectile vomited across my bed. Half-awake, I remembered that my trashcan was by my bedside, so I tried to throw up in there. However, because I had so many friends in one room, the trashcan was moved—and it was my friend's face I barfed on.

I will never forget her reaction or the faces of ten different sets of parents coming to our house at three in the morning to pick up their kids. I felt so bad, both emotionally and physically.

73. This Night Turned Out To Be A Real Stinker

It was my 11th or 12th birthday, and I had invited a half-dozen kids from school for a sleepover. It was supposed to be a night of pizza, rented games, and general fun. The house had a den with a big-screen TV, plenty of couch space, plus a sliding door that could be closed to the rest of the house. It was a perfect setup.

Everyone arrived by 5 PM or so. We devoured dinner, then headed into the den for Smash Bros. This is where the trouble began. With seven kids and only four controllers, players had to trade-off. One kid decided to throw a fit and refuse to give up his controller even after losing multiple matches. As time passed, he got more and more agitated. He was rocking on the floor, and after an hour or more, he SHOT up to his feet and raced into the adjoining bathroom.

After staying in the bathroom for a noticeable length of time, he returned with his attitude somewhat diminished. As the gaming continued, we began to pick up a whiff of something—something foul. A nosy investigation found some of the couch cushions were absolutely rank. It was the cushions that the kid had sat on! It didn't take a genius to figure out what happened.

Refusing to give up his spot, the kid had pooped himself and was now spreading his stank around the room. I ran to my mother and told her what had happened, imploring her to call his parents and make him go home. Instead, she began conjuring up hypotheticals about what could have caused the smell. "Maybe someone stepped in dog poo?"

All the shoes were exiled to the patio with no improvement. We did live out in the country. "Maybe it's just the cow pasture next door?" All the windows were closed to keep the "cow smell out". The stench got worse. Now the entire group was pleading to have this kid sent home. My mother grew stern. She wouldn't have us ganging up on him. The good time of a guest was paramount.

I was admonished to be a good host and leave my parents alone. The kid now became emboldened. He began racing around the room, trying to sit on people's sleeping bags and pillows while we desperately tried to keep our beddings one step ahead of his filth. Eventually, we managed to tire ourselves out, grew immune to the smell, and fell asleep. The next morning, this kid stealthily made a phone call to his parents, and he was picked up before breakfast.

By noon, the rest of the gang had also gotten a ride. Only then did my father make an appearance, having avoided the party the night before. He headed into the den to watch TV. He yelled, "WHAT IS THAT SMELL!?" I explained the events of the previous night, making sure to mention that we had all brought this to my mother's attention, only to have our concerns dismissed.

My mom was shocked to find we had been telling the truth. She said, "I thought it was just a mean joke!" I was the biggest adult-pleasing nerd boy who ever lived at that point and had never played a prank like that. Ultimately, we had to get rid of the entire couch set. Every cleaning product in the house failed to rid the cushions of the abyssal rectal miasma.

74. A Really Comfy Bench

During one of my high school classmate’s birthday celebrations, I ended up being heavily intoxicated. The place that we were drinking at was beside a gym so around the end of the night I apparently went to sleep on one of their benches. When my friends found me they assisted me back to their place so I could sleep on a bed. The funny part is, apparently, I woke up and walked back to the bench that I was found at and proceeded to sleep there again.

75. A Terrible Gift

I slept over at a friend’s house on New Year’s Eve. Sometime after midnight, everyone else is asleep, and I'm out in the backyard enjoying the night air. I notice a Christmas tree discarded in the bushes. So I get a brilliant idea and grab the tree. As I'm dragging it into the house, another friend wakes up on the couch, looks at me and this tree, and says "I don't want any part of this".

The tree is dewy wet by the way. So I'm dragging this full Christmas tree up the carpeted stairs, leaving a trail of water and needles all the way up. I get into my friend’s room while he's sleeping, shimmying the tree right into his walk-in closet full of clothes. I left first thing in the morning and went to sleep at home.

76. Showered In Disaster

When I was around six or seven, a group of four girls was sleeping over at one of the girl’s houses. It was shower time, and we went off in groups of two. I stayed behind with another girl. In the middle of their shower, we just heard a horrendous crash. Then suddenly, there were two 6-year-olds covered in blood running about the house in an absolute panic.

The glass shower doors had exploded onto them. It was horrific. They went to the hospital, and the other girl and I stayed behind, counting the bloodstains we could find. I didn’t touch glass shower doors for a while, and they still make me nervous!

77. Odd Family Dynamic

We were playing with GI Joes and, going through them, I picked up Dr. Mindbender and proclaimed, “I don’t like this guy, he’s dumb". The kid shot out of his room and ran to his mom to inform her I called an action figure dumb. She came barging into the room yelling at me about how we don’t use language like that in this house.

My fault, I apologized and moved on. At dinner I had accidentally dropped a piece of green bean on the floor which their dog ate, he snitched on me again and said I was feeding the dog. The mother again ripped into me about how “we don’t feed the dog people food in this house". After the verbal lashing, I got upset and asked to call my grandma to pick me up.

78. Praying For Rain

I was at a week-long day camp. On the last full day, we had to build a fort for the one overnighter at the end of the week. We were sleeping in the woods with a tarp over a makeshift fort. In the middle of the night, I wake up, having to pee. It’s middle of the woods and pitch-black, but I, unfortunately, didn’t bring a flashlight.

Not wanting to wake anyone else up, I walked what I thought was far enough away and went pee. I instantly heard the sound of liquid hitting sleeping bags, but it was too late so I just kept going. The next morning a couple of the others asked if it rained last night because their bags were all wet. I never told and I never will, I'm still friends with one of them.

79. I Was Not Prepared For This

When I was in the Cub Scouts, my troop leader's son was a weird little dude. I had a bad feeling about him. One night all the other kids were asked to spend the night with him, and I joined mainly for my other friends. In the middle of the night, I opened my eyes, and he was standing in the corner of the room, pleasuring himself slowly while we were all asleep. He didn’t know I was awake, but I was just stunned.

I waited for him to go to bed, and then I got up and snuck out of his house and walked two miles home at 2 AM. My mom freaked when I rang the doorbell. She called his parents, but I eventually told her what happened and she was shocked. Apparently, years later, he suddenly left his leadership position for an undisclosed reason. I just can’t help but feel like that house had some sick stuff going on in it.

80. Our Monster Fun Spun Out Of Control

When I was 11 years old, I was at my friend's place. My friend, her sister, who was eight at the time, and I, were VERY hyper after downing a Monster energy drink each. We were playing with her sister in the basement playroom. My friend picked up a Nintendo DS charger from the floor and was spinning around in circles so fast you couldn't see the cord. You could hear it cutting the air.

At one point, the sister lunged forward to try and grab it from her, and my friend didn't have time to stop spinning it. The metal part of the cord that goes into the DS ended up slicing the sister’s right eyelid basically in half. I was sent home, the sister needed stitches, and for a long time after that, if the three of us wanted to play together in the same room, we had to be within view of their parents.

81. Not-So-Merry Christmas

My high school friends lived in a rich neighborhood. At Christmas time we would dress up in all black and stealthily roam the neighborhood. I’m talking like staying in the shadows and ground rolling; we thought we were in a spy movie. All these rich folks had huge blowup decorations so we would run the neighborhood with our pocket knives just slicing every blowup we passed.

The next morning we’d see them patched with duct tape and blown up again. As a kid who didn’t live in a rich neighborhood, I thought I was getting back at them and that it was okay because they were so rich they could just replace it with no issues.

82. Ill-Mannered Guests

When I was younger, I hit an age that was arbitrarily important to my community; it wasn't just a normal birthday so I wanted it to be really special and planned and paid for everything myself. Any way to keep a long story short, the day resulted in all my friends ignoring me and hanging out with each other, and then at the sleepover afterward, I was in tears.

I was begging them to go to sleep because I was exhausted and even despite my parents getting involved, they kept being loud and threatened to leave. It was pretty upsetting at the time.

83. Barricade Fun

I was really young so my memory is hazy, but I was at this kid’s house and one of us had the idea of taking every object in his room and blocking the door with it. I don’t know if I brought it up but I certainly encouraged it. For an hour we stacked a huge pile of anything we could move right in front of his door until his mom eventually tried to come in and couldn’t open the door.

84. She Got Diagnosed On Her Birthday

I was at my friend’s 13th birthday party, and she ate her entire cake herself. There were only two layers, but still. She ate nearly a dozen pancakes for breakfast that morning, plus several servings of breakfast sausage and hash browns. This didn’t include the other things she ate throughout the day, as she always seemed to be hungry but was the skinniest of all of us.

She disappeared while the rest of us kept hanging out upstairs. I went down to check on her in the basement in her mom’s room. Apparently, she had been throwing up, couldn’t stop peeing, and her stomach was extended and hard. Everyone went home that night, and she didn’t come to school on Monday. It turns out she was admitted to the hospital.

She was almost sent home on the first day without blood work because they thought she was just lactose intolerant. At the last minute, the doctor said, “Let’s just do the blood work now, so you don’t have to make this drive again later". Her blood sugar was just under 1,000, and she was experiencing ketoacidosis. She nearly fell into a coma.

Thankfully, they realized she had Type I Diabetes and admitted her to stabilize her and educate her about how different her life was about to become.

85. We Couldn’t Brush This Off

When I was about 10, I was at a friend's birthday party sleepover. For some reason, my friend's mom thought it was a good idea to give each of us a can of silly string and let us go wild in the backyard. It was a great time until one girl with long, thick, curly hair ended up with a bunch of silly string in her hair. We spent the next half hour watching my friend's mom try to brush it out of the girl's hair and the girl crying in pain.

86. His Behavior Was Extremely Incontinent

I was 13, and my best friend had a sleepover with most of the soccer team. One kid was notorious for peeing himself. He did it so often he had to wear a diaper. We were playing ESPN Extreme Games on PlayStation. This kid was getting beat and threw a fit. He peed himself all over my best friend's couch during his fit. Not a little bit—a whole quart of pee. It was everywhere. He was so embarrassed he left, but nobody wanted to sit on that couch after, even though his mom cleaned it.

87. Art Is Subjective

On Halloween night about six of my friends crashed in my basement. I, the last one awake, crept around each of them with a black sharpie and drew male appendages on their faces. I'd never done it before and was surprised when none of them woke up. It’s a classic prank for a reason.

88. Not There To Work

I once visited a friend’s house and we just went to his room which was a complete mess. Anyway, I'm there for five minutes tops and his dad comes in and says, "Clean up this mess and go outside". I denied this order saying how I just got there and didn't make any of the mess. I just walked out and never went back.

89. It’s All About Grip Strength

In Boy Scouts, I was the morning cook, meaning I woke up before anyone else to chop wood, make fire, and get water boiling. I grab the hatchet and start splitting a log into little splinters for kindling. It was cold and dewy and my hands were wet—a recipe for disaster. The hatchet slipped from my hand mid-swing and went flying towards the tent circle.

It seriously flew 10-15 yards and fell straight down through the roof of a tent, where four scouts were sound asleep. I’m not sure how long I waited to hear someone start screaming. I probably sat there in terrified anticipation for over a minute. Then I was worried someone might be hurt so I crawled over to the tent where the hatchet had landed.

I super quietly unzipped the flap, and saw it landed in a bag of clothes very close to some kid's head. I snuck in, grabbed the hatchet, left the tent, zipped it back up, and finished breakfast. I heard them at breakfast complaining that “the raccoons” had ruined their perfectly nice tent by clawing a hole in it. I thank my lucky stars every day.

90. My Sister Went Slip Sliding Away

When my sister and I were kids, we sometimes stayed overnight at my cousins' house. My uncle had recently revarnished the wood floors in the basement, and it was very slippery. So naturally, the four of us kids were sliding across in our socks and having a blast. It turns out my uncle was not great at refinishing floors.

There was a patch that looked no different from the rest of the floor that wasn’t slippery. My sister hit that patch at full speed, and her feet came to a complete stop, but the rest of her didn't. Her body swung like a pendulum, and she went headfirst into a small stool and split her forehead open pretty bad. There was blood everywhere. The resulting emergency room trip and stitches put an end to that sleepover.

91. It Was Nothing To Be Alarmed About

I was at a sleepover with girls from my class. To have ample room, we slept in tents in the garden. All was good. In the middle of the night, the alarm went off from a secure mental facility that was relatively close by. Most of us had no idea what was going on. We were all blurry-eyed until we saw the friend whose house it was sprinting for the sliding doors. She told us to get inside the house because the alarm meant someone had escaped. We were wired until the morning.

92. Painful Makeover

I was at my best friend's sleepover. She was a year younger than me, and I didn't know any of her other friends. They said the first person to go to sleep would get their face painted unless it was the birthday girl. My friend went to sleep, and I fell asleep after her. When I woke up the next morning, I made a horrifying discovery. My entire face was covered in nail polish. Not paint. Nail polish.

I was able to painfully pick it off in the kitchen. When I confronted my friend about it later, she said she had woken up after I went to sleep and her other friends had done it to me. I'm pretty sure she just watched them do it. She guilted me into sleeping over at her house the next year too, but after that, I was done. We haven't talked since she moved away.

93. Cruel And Unusual

My niece went to a sleepover with a bunch of her girlfriends. The host girl fell asleep first. My niece and the other girls did her so dirty—it's unforgettable. They shaved one of her eyebrows completely off. The next morning, the host girl woke up first and upon discovering her shaved eyebrow, went screaming to her mom. The mom promptly called everyone’s parents, woke the girls, and sent everyone home.

While my sister was raging at my niece, I had to ask why shave only one. My niece said so she’d be forced to shave the other one herself. We later learned that she did in fact shave her other eyebrow. Girls can be brutal but truth be told this cracked me up.

94. Post Funeral Fiasco

When I was eight years old, my great-grandma had just passed. My two cousins and I were spending the night at my grandma's house. All four of her kids were there for the funeral. I don’t know what happened, but my uncle pushed my aunt through a screen door and lost his marbles. Needless to say, my grandpa was beyond mad that anyone would act this way at a time when we were about to lay someone to rest.

95. Itching To Have A Good Time

I was at a buddy’s for his birthday, and we were playing Roman candle tag. I had just got a new shirt I really liked and didn't want it to get dirty, so I turned it inside out. We were playing in the fields behind his house. After, I had turned the shirt back to its right side before we headed to bed. I didn't realize I'd made a terrible mistake until it was too late. Turns out, I had ducked into a poison sumac bush at some point.

The outside of my shirt (now the inside) was COVERED with poison sumac oil. Then, I slept all night in it. The result was awful. I got the worst boils over the next week and had to get a number of steroid shots because I was apparently extremely sensitive to the plant’s poisons.

96. Unrealized Tragedy

My friend and I were at my best friend's birthday party. We had fun on the first day playing video games and stuff. The next morning, we were having breakfast. When we were done, we went back to my friend's room to continue playing Call of Duty. My best friend came into the room and casually said, “Hey guys look at this, come, look at this!” So we went.

I thought he was talking about what was on the TV, so I said, “Hey, that’s pretty disgusting,” and went back to playing Call of Duty. I didn't see my best friend again for about 30 minutes. I assumed he was in the bathroom. When he returned, I asked him what had taken him so long. With the most casual voice, he said, “Didn’t you see my mom passed out?” I was still confused, but I just dropped it.

The next day we had a five-day school trip out of the city. When we got back, my best friend, who hadn't come on the trip, messaged me, saying, “I just had a serious talk with my dad. Sorry for not answering your texts". I didn’t think much of it. I asked, “What was it about? Video games?” He replied, “My mom didn't make it". I was absolutely shocked.

Apparently, she fainted because of a heart attack and passed the day before we got back. I'd seen her, but just thought she was sleeping on the couch.

97. Incredibly Uncomfortable

I didn't know the host or her friends too well so I ended up chilling with this nerdier girl who I had a lot in common with. All was fine until she ended up roping me into coming to play in the nursery where she wanted me to treat her like a baby. She found a pacifier and a bottle from god knows where and told me I was the mom. Then it got even more twisted.

She even climbed into the crib which belonged to the birthday girl's baby brother. I was too shy to say no and went along with it for a while but had to get out of there when she wanted to roleplay a diaper change and refused to talk in English.

98. Pyromania

My son had trouble making friends when he was younger. He befriended a kid from school and invited him to a sleepover. I met the kid's grandmother, and she seemed a bit worried/hesitant. I assured her he would be fine with us. I let the two of them stay in my trailer in the backyard to have the sleepover. After about an hour, my son came into the house and went to his room— alone.

I asked what was wrong and if they got into a fight. He said no, but the kid was being a bit bossy. I dug deeper and discovered the kid was in the trailer setting fires! I went out there immediately and found him trying to hide a package of matches and a bunch of burned ones all over the mattress. Now I know why the grandmother was worried—the kid was a pyro!

I took him straight home and told my son that he made a good effort to make friends, but some kids just don't make good friends.

99. Parents Can Have Sleepovers Too

I went to a giant sleepover when I was 8 or 9 for a friend's birthday. He had all his friends over and his parents had also invited some friends over as well. As the night winded down, we all went into my buddy’s room to jam some Super Smash Bros. Fast forward to about 2 AM. Most of the boys had fallen asleep, save for a few of us.

I had to go to the bathroom horribly. I was holding everything in as I was terrified of using other people's bathrooms and making a mess or smelling up the place. Eventually, I asked my friend where the bathroom was. I still don't know if I misheard him or was just stupid and forgot the minute I walked out of the room, but I somehow ended up at his parents door.

I opened it up full force—I will never, ever forgot what I saw next. I found myself staring at his mother in bed with this dude who’d been at the party, while his dad was sitting in the corner with the dude’s wife. I opened the door so quick they didn't even have time to semi-hide what they were doing. So there I was, 9 years old, frozen in place staring at his parents mid-swap with another couple.

I still see their faces to this day. The only rzeason I know they were swinging as I could see every single one of their faces. They all just looked at me trying to process what just happened. After a good five seconds of dead silence, finally the father yelled to get out and I just shut the door. I stood there for what seemed like hours.

I finally made my way back to my friend’s room, completely forgetting about my full bowels, and just laid down. I laid there all night, wide awake, till 7 AM when my mom picked me up. I never told anyone and NEVER went to another sleepover at my friend’s house or even went inside his house again, in fear of having to see his parents and having that talk with them.

100. Flesh Tunnel

I went to a girls' sleepover when I was in elementary school for a friend's birthday. We had a great time laughing and telling scary stories before bed. I woke up the next morning with a fever and terrible nausea. I went home and I was only getting worse. I had a huge spot on my leg right in the middle between my ankle and knee. It was hot, puffy, and red.

I went to the hospital. The doctor initially thought I was bitten by a spider, but it turned out I was suffering from a really bad staph infection. The night before, we were playing on the stairs, when I slipped and scraped my leg. The infection was spreading fast and was eating away at my flesh. I had a tunnel up to my knee cap that had to be packed with fresh gauze every day. I almost lost my leg.

101. Sudden Loss

I had my first ever sleepover with my best friend in the first grade. Things at night were awesome. However, when I woke up the next morning, everyone at his house was super distant, and they called my mom to come and pick me up ASAP. I didn’t know what was going on. As it turned out, unfortunately, his father had an aneurysm that night and didn’t survive.

102. She Would Swim Any Waters for Me

I'd been drinking one night and pissed the bed...her bed. With her in it. I spent an hour wide awake and mortified, as we hadn't been living together for very long at that point and I had no idea how to handle it. I eventually woke her up and shamefully told her what happened. Without ridicule or anger, she got up, helped me get the sheets in the wash, and took a shower with me.

It's been three years since that day, and she hasn't once used that event as harmful ammunition in an argument, or even mentioned it at all except as private playful banter once or twice. I understood then that she respected that embarrassing things happen to everyone and that I could always count on her to have my back, and to always keep our secrets.

103. Not My Roommate

There was this one night my roommate had gone home because he was sick, so I was pretty excited to have the room to myself. Later that night, I was woken up by the door to our room being opened. I thought nothing of it because I thought my roommate had probably just decided to come back. I then hear him walk across the floor and jump into his bed.

I thought it was a little weird for him to be coming back this quick, but whatever. When I woke up in the morning, his bed was still perfectly made and he had never actually come back that night. I have never been more scared in my entire life.
