What is an unusual rule that you have in your household?

What is the reason for that rule? In my house, it is forbidden to sit on blanket that has been tossed on any of the furniture. The reason being, is that my cats like to burrow inside the blankets and you can't always tell when a cat is hiding in the lumps of blanket...so, to keep them from getting hurt, the rule was put into place.

Im not sure how unusual they are but i have a few. I have a "spot" on the sofa, no one is allowed to sit in. Its my spot, its at a perfect angle for the tv, has a small table next to it for my drink, and is near the arm of the sofa which i lean against. Chris wont even dare sit in my spot. Another one is nothing is to be left on the kitchen counter. I dont like things looking cluttered and dirty and it looks so much better when the counter is clean.

What is your prediction of the outcome ?

No need to apologise I deliberately phrased it that way because the ambiguity amused me, so I thought it would probably amuse others as well.

ANSWER #22 of 39

my mom gets these emails froms friends about different things, and the latest one was about the microwave. i didn't get to read much of it or anything, and my mom didn't really tell me anything. all she told me is that what she read was horrifying, and all that i got to read was that the microwave takes minerals out of food, and people can develop tumors. it also had some pictures of plants, one with mineral water and the other with microwaved water. after a few days the plant with the microwaved water turned into a little stub. so ya whenever my mom gets emails like this she takes them very seriously

ANSWER #27 of 39

I live with my grandma, and she doesn't believe in pills, as in if you have a headache, she doesn't believe in taking medication to help it go away. She likes things to be completely natural. So we have absolutely no pills in the house, nothing. So when I have cramps, headaches, stomach aches, etc.. She will tell me to lay down and eventually it will go away naturally. When I got braces a few years ago, she wouldn't let me take the vicitin that they prescribed to me. It ticked me off so bad. Lol.

ANSWER #29 of 39

Sadly, there are no rules at my house. It is chaos..But a friend of my wife has the most screwed up unhealthy rule. She has like 5 kids. And her rule is that when they have lunch or dinner, none of the kids can't leave the table until they eat all of the food on the plate. So, they will be like all full and can't eat anymore and they will be there for like half an hour trying to finish. Shoving the food and almost gagging. And the mother and the father will be, "Common, you can do it, just one more bite, good boy!" That is abuse to me.
