Fancy soaps, decorative hand towels, and sequined throw pillows. Insanity.

I once saw my buddy and his family sitting down together for dinner.

Freaks.

/jk.  I don't really have a buddy.

Guy kept his Christmas cards on his front door all year long. I was there in July and to be honest that wasn't the weird part, he was.

I dated a guy whose family kept a chair in the bathroom so you could keep a person company while they pooped. And they used it.

Let's just leave it at "I've had dinner in an Italian-American's house" and there were unironic dining room armor and raised circular waterbeds involved.

Unsanitary conditions.

My aunt and uncle have an outdoor, 80 gallon trashcan in their kitchen. As the kitchen trash can.

It's constantly full and overflowing onto the floor.

Serious answer:

Dead and dried beta fish stapled in a headboard-type manner around someone's bed.

One of my coworkers has a computer for every function. I know he has at least one for banking, one for adult sites, one for news, and one for games.

Toilet paper that rolled around the back instead of over the top.

Don't forget the deep plush burgundy shag carpeting and the mirrored ceilings.

Half Right: decorative hand towels


I once had a friend who moved into her boyfriend and when I asked her how they were doing, she gave me a self-deprecating look and said, "I had to explain to him about show towels." Then she went into a long explanation about how she had to train him to not put his towel on the show towels and what the purpose of the show towels is.

I have since had to explain the concept of show towels to multiple people after this story has come up.

WHAT KIND OF NORMAN BATES SH*T IS THAT?!

I had a friend in high school whose mother apparently really liked roosters.  Not chickens, roosters.  So just about everything, maybe with the exception of the wooden furniture, in the kitchen had a rooster on it.  Tiles, plates, towels, pictures on the wall, little porcelain roosters everywhere.  Just, an overwhelming rooster motif.  First time I walked into that kitchen I said "So, uh...your Mom really loves the cock, eh?"  My friend stared at me in shocked horror, because we were early enough in our teenage years that I was actually the first one to make that joke/connection.

Heh.

It was at my (now ex) girlfriend's grandmother's house.  My ex also placed TP the wrong way.

i saw this on one of those "1632 ways to make your home AWESOME" slideshows the other day. it's a toilet seat tab system so everyone in the house gets their own. i don't know how to feel about it it. it's like, is everyone's ass so dirty that you need your own tab? you don't get that luxury at a truck stop, so why do you need it in your own house?

The holes in the carpet, couch and settee that the dog ate.

We've tried to train her! REALLY. She's part terrier! Those dogs are DEMON SPAWN! Cute, hyper demon spawn.

we had neighbors who astro-turfed their front walk and wrapped their front door in aluminum foil.

Yeah, this is like my father's house.  Never know what you're going to find!  Brushed against a precarious tower one day, and suddenly I was looking at a cascade of nude pictures of his then-girlfriend as everything fell to the floor.

mitchcumstein1: A pool table in the kitchen.



A friend of mine has a pool table in the dining area next to his kitchen.

Meh....he's single, rich, and lives in a large house.  Plus, it's great during parties.
 
2014-04-11 11:09:20 AM  
Then there was the guy, a friend, but I never met his father.

"Hey, wanna play video games? "

" Can't, my dad's home. "

I can't imagine what a monster he Must have been.

I had an upstairs neighbor who vaccuumed every single day.  Not a speck of dust or a thing out of place.  She's f*cking crazy

Well...that's what the taxidermy collection was for, apparently.

Oooh, thought of another one.  My in-laws, apparently, love dimmer switches.  A lot.  They recently built a new house, and every single light switch has a little dimmer slider.  Every. Single. One.  In every room.  For every light.

Is one tab labelled 'guest' or 'everyone else's butt'?

They serve no purpose except to make drying one's hands significantly more difficult and unpleasant!!!

/Also relevant regarding decorative cushions....

I had a friend that had a giant truck tire in her living room. You know the kind they make sand boxes out of or are seen on giant trucks?
She put a piece of painted plywood over it and called it a coffee table.

We were in our 30's so this wasn't college furniture or giant construction cable spool coffee table sh*t either.  She actually bought this thing and paid to have it delivered.

My friend's mom has an unhealthy amount of Black Americana stuff in her house. Like hundreds of things in blackface with bright red lips. I don't get it.

People like you need to find actual interesting things to worry about.

A friend's mom who was so OCD she would run to the sink and wipe it if a drop of water fell.

When I got a drink of water, she stood by me, watched me drink it, then hurriedly washed the glass and then put it away.

I couldn't wait to get out of that house.

Also, if you had cats you'd understand why TP is sometimes put up that way. They eventually figure it out anyway, but it helps for a while.

I have a great aunt like that.  She'd clean an ashtray three times before you finished a cigarette.
