If you thought your parent’s house rules were bad…check these out and start to feel thankful for your parent’s rules.

A Reddit user posted a question, “What’s the weirdest rule you had in your home growing up?” and people submitted some of the strangest rules they had to follow while growing up. PSA: Some of these will have you scratching your head wondering why.

Weird rules people had growing up include:

  • “Salt was for guests only. The actual use of spices was VERY looked down on in my house and was seen as a huge insult to my mom and dad, even though they were absolutely horrid cooks.”
  • “My grandmother said not to poop during a lightning storm because a bolt of lightning might strike the pipe and electrocute me.”
  • ” I wasn’t allowed to put sugar in my tea because my mum told me that ‘when you go to prison they don’t let you have sugar, so it will makes prison that much harder.’ 1: Thanks for having so much faith in me mum. 2: I’m pretty sure you are allowed sugar for your tea in prison.”
  • ” I was never allowed to leave a drink in the car because, according to my mother, ‘someone could poison it.’ She’s always been overly paranoid about safety, but that rule is still my favorite.”
  • “We couldn’t say the word ‘fart.’ Ever. It was up there with the f-word as far as bad words in my parent’s world.”
