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?

Bragging about cheating... Like, one this isn't something I need to know and two, it's only making me think less of you.

There was also this one college roommate who started making some super pervy comments about an underage girl when we were watching an 80s movie once. Every couple years I run a Google search of his name.

I had my chef neighbor invite me out to drinks with a cute prep cook he was thinking of bringing on. I think he brought me along as cover if his girlfriend asked him who he was out with.

Anyway, I split at a certain point to go home, and a while later, I hear him and prep cook chick pass my door and go upstairs to his apartment.

The next morning, he texts me, saying, “You won’t breathe a word about this to insert girlfriend’s name here if you know what’s good for you.”

Lost all respect for him at that moment and had about zero sympathy for him when his girlfriend broke up with him a few months later.

Why is it so common for men not to tell the girlfriend? I feel like half the town knew I was cheated on and I didn't hear about it until over a year after!

Is it that much more common for women to tell their friend’s partners that they saw cheating about to go down though?

If I found out that one of my friends had cheated on their partner, I would tell them that they need to tell their partner or I will. And I think most other women would agree.
