17 people share the biggest catastrophe they narrowly avoided.

We use the phrase "dodged a bullet" to describe the fairly common experience of avoiding a bad experience, like a toxic relationship or bad work environment. But what's the phrase for avoiding a major catastrophe that could've seriously messed up a person's life?! Someone on Reddit invented one: "dodging a huge tactical nuke." Poetic!

"What is NOT a bullet you dodged, but a huge tactical nuke you dodged?" asked NinjaNate123 in a popular Reddit thread.

These 17 people share stories of the times they narrowly avoided a major catastrophe, thanks to either their own foresight or a sheer stroke of luck:

1.) From discostud1515:

I used to own a gym with a partner. I sold my half of the company and took a boring but stable government job about 3 months before the pandemic.

2.) From RenaKunisaki:

The second floor of the house I was renting collapsed a month after I moved out.
