I have no idea why kids can be so incessantly creepy sometimes – they see things, they “remember” things, they tell you thinks, they sense things – but it seems to be something of a universal truth, doesn’t it?

So when @karnythia asked Twitter for stories about the creepiest thing a kid has ever said to them, well, people responded with some doozies. 

I’ll just be over here reading those under a blanket, yeah?

14. Well that’s not unsettling at all.

Maybe get him a train set to keep him happy.

13. I bet his parents have trouble finding babysitters.

I hope she got out of that basement immediately…or at all.

12. This is probably fake, right?

It’s still a pretty good story, though.

11. When you want to think it’s sweet, but…

There’s also a ghost right there.

10. I feel like his future gf might need a warning.

“Everyone he likes.” Eep.

9. Excellent decision making there.

You can cleanse the closet later.

8. So many kids tell some version of this story.

I wonder where they hear it, or…you know.

7. He probably meant it in a sweet way…

Right? Make me feel better here.

6. Maybe it’s time to consider this who reincarnation thing?

Because kids seem to have boarded that train.

5. Kid knows how to take out the competition.

I’d keep an eye on that one.

4. Totally thought she was going to say “hair.”

Yeah, hide the knives.

3. I’m sure it was a coincidence.

But maybe call and exorcist, just in case.


2. What active imaginations they have.

Hahahahaha *looks behind me*

1. Just TRY to stop yourself from looking behind you.

You can’t. It’s impossible.

I am dreading the day one of my boys busts something like this out, because eek!

Has your kid ever said something to you that belongs on this list? Please tell us about it in the comments!
