    "I absolutely cannot wear new clothes without washing them first. Just imagine how many people touched that shirt – from the factory where it was made, to the shipment workers packing boxes, to the retail workers who hang it up, to the god-knows-how-many other shoppers who’ve tried it on."

    "As someone who grew up with a stepmom and two stepbrothers, that is disgusting. I know you're not blood related, but they're literally part of your family, whether you like them or not. Never understood the fetishization of it all."

    5. "Wearing shoes inside. I've had friends and family roll their eyes or whine when I ask them to take their shoes off. It takes me a long-ass time to get this place clean, and your dirty-ass shoes won't help. Take them off or leave."

    12. "Letting dogs on your bed, especially after they walked their paws on the ground, pooped, peed, and everything in between. Gross!"
