22 Strange Habits People Thought Were Normal

It’s impossible to know every single detail about your spouse — something one husband is much more aware of than anyone else. One day, when taking a shower with his wife, he watched her bring her previously-worn underwear into the shower, clean it, then ball it up and use it as a sponge to clean her body. 

If you got overwhelmed reading that, just imagine how he felt. When he asked her about the strange habit, she replied that her mother taught her to do that. While this brings up a lot of questions about the hygiene practices of that family, it also goes to show that we can do some really weird shit and think it’s normal

To that end, other Redditors have stepped up to the mic to share their strange habits. And although they aren’t quite as bizarre as an underwear loofah, they’re just weird enough to make you feel better about yourself.
