This trend changed following the birth of the internet, which has transformed the whole world into a global village. Major social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and medium have provided platforms for people to engage in conversions and interact. However, there is one website that beats all of the above by providing a platform where people can share their thoughts and even let out the creepy, outrageous, and mind-boggling confessions. This site is famously known as Reddit. Reddit is made up of forums where members can share anything from breaking news, life stories to confessions, and anything in-between. The forums are segmented into small communities called subreddits. Reddit is among the top 5 famous websites in the United States. It is at position five after Amazon, according to Alexa.

Soon after moving out, he got himself a girlfriend for the first time in his life. Being happy, he broke the news to his family through a phone call. His grandma, who according to him, was a staunch Christian, congratulated him and at the same time warned him against early sex before marriage. One day, as he confesses on Reddit, an idea came to him to prank his grandmother and out of the blues he decided to tell his grandmother that his newly found girlfriend was pregnant through a phone call.
Being a Christian, his grandmother was shocked to death. After explaining all about his girlfriend, all this Redditor could hear from the other end of the call were chocking noises.
