In certain circumstances, we all do things that are difficult, morally questionable or downright unethical. To find out what some of these things are, one Reddit user took to the Ask Reddit forum. BirdyPizza asked, "What is the darkest thing you have ever done and don’t regret?" Of course, fellow Reddit users responded with some interesting answers, ranging from stories of revenge to others of loss and grief. Shockingly, a few of the responses even included individuals getting away with murder.


One Reddit user shared, "This is a family story, but I have confirmed it with several people who are not in my family. My uncle, a rapist, was murdered by his brothers after he raped my cousin. Nobody would testify for him, and several people gave the brothers an alibi. To be clear, this happened well before I was born."

Some Reddit users challenged the idea of what it means to be a bystander. For example, an individual recalled, "A neighbor like 10 years ago was neglecting their dog badly in the heat. The dog escaped often and ended up at the shelter a lot. One day she jumped the fence and got her tie-out cable stuck on the fence. (She was not in danger of choking.) Neighbor put her on a 3-foot-long cable tied to a doorknob, no water, 90 degree day. I let some kind folks steal her, watched the whole thing and said nothing to stop them."

Nearly all of us have had at least one bad roommate. We can't endorse the behavior In this story but we certainly can relate:

"Got into a car accident and had to stay with my mom for a couple days to figure out what to do. Went back to my apartment (I had two roommates) and everything was missing from my room. Long story short one of my roommates had everything hidden in her room."

"I called and told her the things were missing from my room and she came up with a lie that a couple girls came to look at my room (I was moving out bc of the accident, long story) and that they must have taken my things."

"She had everything I owned. Including my grandmothers perfume bottles, stuffed to the back of her closet, under her bed, behind her dresser etc. So I packed all of my stuff up. Then took a giant black garbage bag and stuffed as much of her closet in it as I could. Took it to the middle of nowhere, dug a hole and burnt it."

"She called screaming at me that her stuff was missing. I told her the two girls must have come by and taken her stuff too."

Others shared stories of compassion, though their actions may not have been strictly legal or ethical. "When my father was dying and in pain, I was the one who told the doctors he had been through enough and we could not see him suffer anymore," a Reddit user explained. "Doctor injected him with something, I assume a morphine mega dose and he passed peacefully moments after.

Euthanasia may not be legal in the United Kingdom but compassionate doctors know what is what. I do not regret it because my pa made me promise I would have his back when he got sick or old. I am sad he got sick and never got to get old." Are there any tough decisions you made that you do not regret?
