A casual sexual encounter can be easily forgotten with the passage of time, but of course it may linger in the memory if it was especially enjoyable.
However, some people have had the misfortune of experiencing a one night stand that will never be forgotten because it ended rather badly.
And they’ve shared their experiences in a very amusing Reddit thread, detailing tales of angry husbands, being caught in the act by protective fathers and some unfortunate accidents.
One man will never forget the very uncomfortable journey home with the father of the girl he went home with the night before, who just so happened to be an Uber driver.
Another was coerced into staying the night when his date locked all the doors and accompanied him to the kitchen to get water before shutting him in the bedroom again.
And a woman was left with hours to mull over her feelings of regret after the man she’d slept with told her she couldn’t leave the house until his grandmother went to bridge, in case they ran into each other.
