People Share Some Of The Weirdest Things They’ve Seen At Other People’s Houses!
There’s a saying that goes ‘you never really know a person until you visit their home.’ Okay, so it may not be a real saying but it should be! Visiting someone’s house tells you a lot about them, nearly as much as going away on holidays together, but that’s another article for another day.
Ever since I could walk and talk my mother would be too scared to take me to her friends’ homes. You see, I would go and use their toilet then proudly come back to the group and announce how dirty or clean it was. In fact I often gave ratings much to my mum’s horror! Sure it was cute when I was a toddler, but not so much when I visited my mum’s friend last week- and if you’re wondering, I scored her a 6/10. She lost points for the cheap air freshener.
A recent poll on an online discussion forum asked people to write in and share some of their OMG moments from visiting other peoples’ homes. Some are so out there that we hope the authorities were called in. While others just go to show that we all have very different standards of ‘normality.’
So grab a glass of wine and prepare to be entertained and repulsed at the same time!
“A friend’s mother has a human skull in her living room with a dollar bill stuffed between its teeth. Apparently she knew the guy.”
“My friends and I went to an open house in which there were framed photos of the owner with Richard Simmons in every single room, including the bathroom! Supposedly, the homeowner had lost a lot of weight 30 years ago, and was forever grateful. But Richard’s eyes seemed to follow you everywhere you went in the house!”
“I had dinner at my friend’s house, and they served ‘medium-rare’ chicken, saying that the blood made it delicious. I tried to politely ask if I could microwave it a little longer, and they were offended. Then they lectured me on how people had to eat PEOPLE during World War II in Romania, and how lucky I was to have medium-rare chicken.”
“My friend’s family has a shrine for her grandmother in their house. When I first saw it, I thought, ‘Oh, she’s probably passed away and this is their way of commemorating her.’ But I asked my friend about it later, and it turns out her grandmother is very much alive and healthy! She explained that she thinks her family is a cult and her grandma is the leader.”
“I saw a 5-foot dildo in my mom’s friend’s living room. It wasn’t hidden at all.”
“One of my high school friends had all the usual family vacation pictures in her hallway, but there was one of his dad on a pier holding a fishing pole. On closer inspection, I noticed that hanging at the end of the pole like a large fish he had just caught was MY FRIEND’S MOTHER! She was fully nude and hanging upside down. My friend refused to talk about the picture.”
“My friend’s house featured a life-sized cutout of his sister, who was away at college. They moved it to a different place each time I came over.”
“I was using a friend’s bathroom, and I ran out of toilet paper. When I looked for a new roll under the sink, I was horrified to see a paper grocery bag of used tampons just left there. It had to have been YEARS worth! I had no words.”
“One of my exes collected her fingernail and toenail clippings in little glass bottles, and displayed them over her bed.”
“I was doing part-time nursing and one of the cases I attended was a large house in the middle of nowhere for an elderly man. When I was let inside the house, I saw the old man lying in a box which was disguised as a bed. I was told it was because the family knew he was on his last legs, so the box was his ‘pre-coffin’ for the undertaker to take to the funeral parlor.”
That’s all folks! You’re welcome.
