Fess Up!!!

I think we need a little time out for some tell the truth fun!!!

Have you ever looked in a friend's medicine cabinet, drawers, etc? I don't mean an old boyfriend, which I assume everyone has done (and if you didn't you should have!), but someone you were or are still currently friends with.

Find anything good? Would you ever tell them you did it?

And we swear we won't rat you out!

YEP.. oh totally... I don't know why but I have this notion I will find something Smile
I usually find that they do not clean to my standards LOL

NAH... just like myself all the good stuff is never in plain sight.. cause I do it to people I assume they do it to me.
HELL NO do I tell them!

I really must say that I don't think I've ever done it...intentionally that is (to an xboyfriend..yes)....I've happened upon things but never looked intentionally...never saw anything good either ROFL

Kelly you crack me up! I'm like you, never keep anything good where someone would find it without having to dig lol!! And I think people who DO look do this, people who DON'T look probably have good stuff to find! So at Peg's house, who KNOWS what you'd come across! ROFL

I did hit the jackpot years ago....a friend had me stay at her and her hubby's house while they were away. She sold Mary Kay and told me to use her kit that was in the linen closet. The kit was laying flat with a photo album on top of it. Well, if you were going to tell someone they could use something in a closet, wouldn't you put away anything you didn't want them to come across?? It was a wedding album, but not of her and her DH, but her FIRST marriage I knew nothing about. She was 25 at the time I knew her, and looked really young in the first wedding. I never said peep to her about it, maybe she forgot it was there, or was waiting for me to say something. And we weren't casual friends, but really close, close enough that I stayed at her house for a week. I nosed around as carefully as possible to make sure I didn't let the cat out of the bag to anyone, but it seemed like no one else had any clue she was married before. Now being married twice isn't anything big at all, but I figured it must have been a bad deal to never mention it to anyone. So now she's still married to that second husband and they have 3 kids!

I honestly don't think I ever have...that I remember anyways.

I bet she wanted you to know Julie...if it was such a huge secret, she wouldn't have had the album stuck in a linen closet!

I think I did when I was younger, but not in the last few years. I'm sure SIL does it to us all the time, I should start keeping a vibrator and lube in the med cabinet just to skeeve her out LOL.

Maybe it's just me but I honestly never thought of doing this. What are you looking for? Why would I care what pills and lotions are in someone else's cabinet? Even if I found a condom packet or a bottle of Viagra or a spare glass eyeball, I'd be more disturbed than thrilled. Sorry to poop on this parade, lol.

I'd probably wonder more about the snooping person than the owner of the cabinet. It makes me think of a fishy story my SIL told my mother about being in my mother's bathroom looking for headache medicine and "accidentally" dropping most of a bottle of prescription Tylenol in the toilet. We don't believe it for a second; she took the pills home.

After my recent surgery I had codeine pills and the same SIL asked me if she could have the rest of the bottle, since I was done taking them. I gave it to her because I didn't want my kids to be able to find it (the bathroom is locked, but still don't want those pills in the house if I don't need them). I asked her why she needed them and she said they work better on her migraines than her prescription medicine. It didn't occur to me until afterwards to wonder why she doesn't just get her doctor to prescribe them then...? It still seems a bit fishy to me.

OhMyGosh. I better go check all my cupboards before I run off to MI and have someone else come and check on my house. Obviously, like Peg, I have not snooped and now I'm paranoid of what past house sitters have found.

Karina, ROFL a glass eyeball.

When I was younger I totally did this everywhere we went. I wasn't looking for anything specific, more just curious about what brand of stuff they used. I never touched anything, but would open the medicine cabinet and stare everything down. If something was on the sink (like tootpaste or hand soap) I would sometimes pick it up to read the ingredients while I on the toilet. What can I say? I was a weird kid who needed bathroom literature.

Once I got my own place, I stopped doing it because it felt a bit too intrusive. But for some reason it was really fun as a kid haha!

Karina, prescription drug abuse is huge. I hope your SIL uses them responsibly, but I'm also glad that you just gave them to since she knew you had them anyway. I know a friend of a friend that became highly addicted and would spare no length to get more pills...even at the expense of her family and friends. It was really sad. Sad

Anyway! I'm not really a snooper either as far as friends go. But in HS I went on a choir tour and families were hosting us...my roommate and I stayed in the room of an 18yr old guy and roomie thought it would be awesome to go through his drawers. She stole condoms. Same roomie ended up preggo and married while still in HS. :rolleyes:

Anyway, Julie, weird about your friend...sounds like she DID leave it there on purpose!! :eek:

Karina you didn't poop on anyone's parade by not looking in someone's personal effects! I can tell you that for me, if I do it, it's just out of curiosity, not malice. The same reason why I enjoy watching some reality TV shows, a window into others lives!

Can't say that I ever have... not even an ex boyfriend! Lol

Man, if people go through my drawers and cupboards they must think I'm nuts. I just cleaned out a drawer with plastic frogs, a rock shaped like a saddle, Sienas belly button stump, 80's looking sunglasses, old cheques from when I lived in Calgary, 2 broken cell phones, Siena's first little hat and mittens, crayons, lube... yeah, lube, and a pair of riding gloves.

I never have. But, all the homes around here have a guest bathroom on the main floor, so there is actually nothing to snoop. I guess I just do not have any interest in doing it.

LOL!!! These are hilarious!!!! If someone wants to snoop through my stuff...good luck! Clean it a little while you are at it! I don't think I am much of a snooper...maybe at home but that doesn't count!

BUT LOL

I do have a creeper story. I used to babysit for a little boy and girl. (Deb if you are wondering the D's at the end of the block at the stop sign at E. Lane lol). Anyway, their room was always closed off, so no big deal. One day they must have left in a hurry and left the door open. Well all of the rooms were upstairs and well it was open. On the walls were lingerie pictures of her.OMG lol I am laughing out loud right now. It was horrifying LOL! Red lacey lingerie .. . PROFESSIONALLY DONE ......posing sexually LOL! wow. maybe that is why I don't snoop. I was scarred for life LOL.

I think I did when I was a teen. Never found anything good.

What stopped me was an AFV skit where they set up a camera in their bathroom and purposly had all the bottles in the cabnet fall when it was opened by the guest. haha, that was too funny. How embarassing.

I know I had a couple of friends in college who worked steam cleaning carpets. Well they would ALWAYS go steal perscription pills from every house they went to. They were addicts, and ended up going to rehab and all. IMO pill popping is a huge problem down south. I never got it, they always made me fall asleep. meh.

Used to do this when I babysat too. But haven't in years. Not that I'm not curious. :). I too found sexy pics of one of the moms I sat for, some porno movies (no I didn't watch) and I always found candy stashes in the kitchen and raided those. God I hope these people didn't have sitter cams. Blush
