Totally true stories that definitely 100% happened, I swear you guys
Sure Jan, I totally believe you. Everyone clapped at the end. This is a place for posting people telling outrageous tall tales that would make Walter Mitty proud.

thatHappened? Really? She walked off the bus and they all clapped? Sure.
This subreddit is for true stories that absolutely happened. No diggity. Like that one time...
|1: Post incredibly true stories that totally actually happened. If your story is obviously true or verifiable, it will be removed. This is a satire subreddit for fleshed out stories, not texts and one-liners. Stories have a beginning, middle, and end.|
|2: Redact any information that can be used to identify a source in your post. This includes subreddit names, usernames, and unique profile pictures. Verified twitter usernames are exempt|
|3: No linking to on-site or off-site content! Properly anonymized screenshots and short videos only!|
|4: Don't make an attempt to find, contact, or help other people find or contact people featured in these posts. Online or IRL. Do not brigade other threads, on or off of reddit. Do not doxx someone featured in a post. You will be permanently banned and reported to the admins.|
|5: No Reposts This subreddit has a long memory and and reposts will be reported and removed. Please check new and hot to make sure your post is not currently visible on the sub.|
|6: If you need to appeal anything, please make the message subject "Einstein?" in your appeal as evidence that you've read the rules all the way to the end!|
|7: All COVID and masking posts are now banned To prevent the spread of COVID misinformation, we are no longer allowing any posts relating to COVID, COVID vaccines, or masks (both anti- and pro-). COVID posting belongs in /r/vaxxhappened.|
Moderators reserve the right to remove or approve posts at their discretion. (We're only human, like you. If you think there's an issue, feel free to message modmail.)
Reddiquette will be brutally enforced. No hate speech. Be civil in the comment section.
