People on Reddit were asked: "What major 'plot twist' moment have you had in your life?" These are some of the best answers.
1/23 I thought I was going to inherit my mother's boobs my whole life. I waited. And waited. Then I found out that she got a boob job when I was little...
2/23 Mine was finding out the woman I called "mum" for the first 16 years of my life was actually my gran, and that my older sister was my birth mum. Apparently she got pregnant when she was 13 so her mum decided to raise me.
Now I've got no idea what to call either of them, calling my big sister "mum" just feels weird.
3/23 My Grandfather was dying of cancer. He was a big, tough man and gradually just wasted away. Sometime near the end, he asked my Grandmother to bring him a piece of paper and a pen. He wrote down all the names of his 27 grandchildren. Next to my name was a check. Nobody else had anything next to their names. My Grandmother showed it to me after he died. She had no idea what it meant. I still think about that every once in awhile.
4/23 My grandmother passed away just over two weeks ago. The family all went to see her for the last time. She was surprisingly aware of everything around her, and telling stories/joking. I went and sat by her, and we talked for a little while about various things. Out of nowhere she said "Do you know who your real mother is?"... Now, I have only ever known one woman to be my mother, and had never considered otherwise. I was shocked, and asked her to repeat herself, thinking I misheard her.
She said it again "Do you know who your real mother is?". I looked over to my aunt, with a confused look on my face, who addressed my grandmother "____ is his mother, Nanny!" My grandmother laughed for a second and said "Oh yeah, I guess I know who your mother is too!".
Now, I'm fairly certain my mother is actually my mother. Since then, I have been trying to justify her saying that though. All I can think is either, she was very out of it and didn't know what she was saying. Or, there is someone else in my family who doesn't know their real mother, and she mistook me for them. I'm not sure I should pursue this any further with my family, as any reason to keep it secret is probably a decent one. And I'm not so sure I want to know the answer.
5/23 Finding out at my Grandmother's funeral that she worked for MI6.
