Years ago, I went to a classmate's home. This was one of the few times my mother allowed me to do so (I guess she really liked the parents; I can't say I recall the reason otherwise). We did our homework and watched some television once we'd finished. It seemed a normal enough time. Nothing out of the ordinary. Until my classmate's older sister arrived home, presumably from work or university, and proceeded to open a can of Chef Boyardee "Spaghetti" that she then ate cold... right out of the can. It was gross––and no one batted an eye. I was traumatized, so of course, I felt it prudent to share this horror with all of you.

People told us all about the odd things they came across visiting their friends after Redditor Volwwrathe47 asked the online community,

"What's the most f***ed up thing you've seen at a friend's house?"
Warning: Unfortunately, some of these stories might not be as innocent as mine. Some sensitive material ahead.

​"Well, one day..."

"I had a friend who lived on his own in high school and we partied there a lot. He had a revolving door of roommates to help with rent. One of these roommates was a pretty serious drug dealer. He was extremely paranoid and rarely spoke to us besides threats. He had ordered (threatened) that no one EVER go in his room and it was always locked.

Well, one day he got arrested and had pounds of drugs in the car. Off to jail. He had communicated through family again not to enter his room and eventually his family would come to get his things. Weeks went by and a strange smell started coming from the locked room. This dude and his family were super scary so we didn't want to mess around and find out. But finally, my friend was like, "WTF is this smell, maybe it's trash and I can get it out of here without touching anything else." NOPE. It was a HUUUGE Boa constrictor no one knew about. I think it had died and that was the issue. He didn't have it in any proper tank so it clearly wasn't taken care of."

"My friend's mom..."

"My friend's mom (raging alcoholic) was really drunk and pulled a shotgun on us not knowing who we were, due to being blackout drunk."

That is terrifying. Thankfully, you made it out okay.

"My childhood friend's mom..."

"My childhood friend's mom had a nude Titanic-style painting of herself hanging above the dining table."

Draw me like one of your French Girls... so I can display it above the dining table and guests can see it when they come over.

"My neighbor friend..."

"My neighbor friend had a bucket in the corner of her room that she said was to relieve herself in when her parents locked her in. I was seven and she was nine... we moved away shortly after and I didn't realize that this was not normal until several years later. I hope she made it to adulthood okay."

"A new kid..."

"A new kid moved a couple of doors down. I befriended him, and he invited me round his house one day. He just went for a piss in the corner of his bedroom. He and his family were pretty messed up in hindsight."

I'll say. Bathrooms exist for a reason, but something tells me that doesn't even scratch the surface of their problems.

"Friend asked me..."

"Friend asked me to get us clean coffee mugs out of the dishwasher. Besides the mugs, the dishwasher contained two toilet brushes, just washed."

"Wondered why..."

"Wondered why my friend always came to my house to play. One day we went to her house...all the rooms were trashed and the bathtub was filled with brown liquid. We kept playing at my house after that."

"My friend had..."

"My friend had a dedicated poop room for his Great Dane. First and last time I went there."

Why... why do people do this?!

What's wrong with just taking the dog outside? And how could you even have guests over like that?

"When I was a kid..."

"When I was a kid I went to a friend's house. Really pretty kitty asleep on the couch. I went over and pet it.

They had their cat stuffed after it died and had it proudly on display on their couch.

Dead, stuffed cats don't feel really nice when you pet them. Yuck."

"The dog stayed..."

"A friend of mine and his wife were having a struggle of wills over who was responsible for taking care of their dog. The dog stayed in their baby's room. The floor was literally covered in dog shit. It was insane (but so was the rest of their relationship..)"

I warned you... my can of Chef Boyardee is like the happy Hallmark film version of this article, especially after reading some of these. My heart breaks for anyone who grew up in an environment that was, presumably, as rough as some of the ones described here.

There are a number of things people partake in spite of the known possible ramifications they have on their health and safety.

Up to and including smoking, bungee-jumping, recreational drug use, or simply bike riding without a helmet.

Indeed, even though they know that doing any or all of these things could possibly lead to their death, they do it anyway.

Sadly, even though many people go out of their way to avoid doing these things for that very reason, that still doesn't mean they keep themselves completely out of danger.

Sadly, there are a surprisingly large number of things that lead to an even more surprising number of deaths each year.

Frighteningly, these are things that the majority of the world's population does on an almost daily basis.

When Americans visit a foreign country, they tend to notice immediate cultural differences from the minute they step off the plane.

Unique bathroom designs, how you might have to be more specific when ordering coffee in Australia, how many businesses in Spain tend to shut down for a few hours to take a siesta.

Needless to say, this goes both ways, as when people from all over the world visit the United States, they tend to be surprised and amazed by a number of things.

Ranging from the amusing, such as portion sizes and ineffective tea brewing (at least for the Brits) to the truly baffling (HEALTHCARE).

We've all found ourselves annoyed by the ticks or habits of others.

Some of these are fairly common, such as chewing with your mouth open, cracking your knuckles, or whether or not they pronounce the "T" in often.

Some habits are a bit more unusual, though.

Only the people guilty of possessing these habits might not realize that they're unusual until they are told by someone else that practically no one, or literally no one, else does them.

It's an eye-opening, sometimes humiliating discovery.

My entire childhood was comprised of watching Hollywood movies about high school.

From High School Musical, I learned that theater is uncool and no jock would be caught dead in a musical. The Breakfast Club made me think Saturday detention wasn't so bad. I learned that teachers can be manipulated from Clueless, and Mean Girls showed me how divided high school kids are based on their cliques.

When I actually started high school, none of those lessons helped me. I knew several jocks who were talented musicians and starred in every musical. I never had Saturday detention, but I heard enough horror stories to know it was awful. Teachers are not fools who bend to a student's will, and cliques are almost a myth. Yes, the cheerleaders hang out with other cheerleaders, but they don't dump food all over the honors kids.

Very few high school movies reflect the actual high school experience. Redditors know this all to well and were ready to share their stories.
