Six-year-olds do a lot of bad things. They don’t know any better as they’re still learning how to navigate life and the difference between what’s right and wrong. As we mentioned, many confessions come from our youthful days of figuring out the world.
This Redditor said, “when I was six I scribbled on the sides of the keys of the family piano. Like, I took a marker, pressed a key down, and then scribbled on the sides of the keys on each side of the key I was holding down. You could only see it when the keys were pressed. I did that on like six keys, in different colors, before getting bored and also realizing exactly what I was doing. I still have no idea why I decided to do that.”
They got away with it for some time before they were discovered. They said, “it got discovered. I blamed my 4-year-old brother, with the logic that I, at 6, LOVED the piano, was taking lessons, and would NEVER scribble on something so precious. Also, I’d conveniently left the markers on the floor of his room. He got spanked. I didn’t feel guilty at the time (probably because he’d been annoying me somehow), and I still feel weirdly guilty about that.”
It sounds like that six-year-old dodged a bullet, even if they’re still ridden with guilt. “I’m in my 40s. I’ve never admitted this to my family.” Over 30 years later, they still feel bad. Maybe it’s time they fess up to their mistake so they can all laugh about it (via Reddit).
