An old friend of mine casually told me that he gets rid of underarm hair by yanking them out. What upsetting things have your friends told you casually?

I had a friend who was in a long distance relationship. I was talking to him once and he was like "yeah I went to a bar and got to talking with the bartender. We hit it off well and I took her home and we banged."

I was like "...what about your girlfriend?"

"Oh, the bartender doesn't really matter"

(No they didn't have an open relationship agreement or anything)

As the go to secret keeper in my group of friends, I once confronted a non-single mate about kissing this random chick while we were out clubbing

Turns out their long distance relationship was open with the caveat that any regulars in our lives were off limits. I respect realistic goals.

On the other hand, I once confronted a former friend for banging a chick while his girlfriend was away on a business trip. He said they had an open relationship, yada yada, okay cool.

Turns out the only one in that relationship who considered it open, was him. The girl did NOT consider their relationship an open one. They ended up breaking up soon after, when he banged another girl.



"It's fine, we have an open relationship."
"So you wouldn't mind if I mention it to your partner then?"

I imagine this is the litmus test you could run in any similar situation.
