I (5'11") stand just a few inches taller than the average guy. A standard bathtub length is apx 5 feet and thats not even counting the hangover shelf or the slope. The actual length of your bathtub is just 4 feet. Odd you'd find it difficult to find that number on any search engine but go get a measuring tape and give it a go.
As I've gotten older, I've been fortunate enough to have continuously upgraded my living conditions. I have found that bathtubs directly correlate w/ social class!!!! What the absolute fuck, I dont remember being any shorter when I was broke and its not like adding a foot of length to a tub wouldn't be a welcomed trade even if it meant a foot taken from a closet or towel rack.
I know this will seem like I'm cracked and maybe I am but its this sort of shit that makes me want to turn this "social class cold war" into something far less passive. Been oppressed my whole life and thats fine, in a lot of ways I'm better for it but when the simplest of pleasantries like this are so smugly withheld...it doesn't make me want to "Hustler harder to get what I want", it makes me want to teach high society how short they are when tipped over.
Anyways, bathtubs em I rite???
Edit: Seems like a lot of people hate their tubs too! Follow up question for my fellow 'miniature tub' owners...if a bigger tub wasn't an option, would or wouldn't you rather the standard to just be a stand in shower, with that bulky tub removed for optimal space?
Edit 2: I don't get out much so imma reply to all 600 comments, so don't get all fussy when I respond a week from now on "a dead post". If thats "so cringe", then maybe you shouldn't talk to strangers...cuz they might just be a weirdo
Edit 2.5 A: For the love of God, stop 'following me'. You dont want this. This train goes nowhere really fast, makes disappointing whistles and the conductor is just 3 trench coats in a child suit. Seriously, just look at my history, half the time I'm rambling like a mad man and the other half is symmetrical
I dont have a bidet so this was the next best thing!
My (31M) gf (26F) moved in with me a few months ago. A bit of the initial romance illusion has shattered since now she just flat out tells me whenever she's sick and gives details (like if she threw up, has a heavy period, whatever) but I accept that this is life and that's just information you get if you share space with someone. I am adjusting to it. But she claims my "need to see women as pretty things" in her words is coloring my view of the situation that happened yesterday so it's relevant background. I think this is a hygeine issue.
She was driving me to work yesterday which is pretty close. Maybe 15 minutes drive from our apartment. Halfway there we were on a feeeway and she started saying she felt sick and wanted to pull over but there wasn't really a good place to do it so she just kept going and asked if she could use the bathroom at my work and I said sure, that wouldn't be a problem. When we got there she said nevermind she just needs to go home. She looked mad and when I asked she just kept saying she has to go home, so she did.
When I got home I asked how she was feeling and she said she was better. She also told me she had "period poops" earlier and had a minor accident in the car......
First I was just grossed out and told her she's a literal adult and shouldn't have "accidents" when she can hold it for a few minutes to find a bathroom. Which was a bit rude. I was just shocked because I know sometimes if you have the flu or something accidents can rarely happen but she isn't sick and periods are something she has all the time so you'd think she had a handle on them by now. But okay.
The real problem was her taking her jeans out of the washer. I asked if they were what she wore in the car and why didn't she just throw them away. She said it was fine because it was "just a small dot" and she washed them in the bathtub first before the washer. Which IMO is worse - basically she contaminated the bathtub and washing machine with body waste. I basically said please wash the inside of the machine and the bathtub with bleach because it grosses me out to think of using them now and she called me an AH and we had it out for a while.
I was raised in a household where we definitely would just throw clothes out if they came in contact with pee, puke, or poop. Those are literal waste products and it's dirty to have particles of it around your living space. She thinks I'm being insensitive but I am respecting that she feels sick, it isn't about th... keep reading on reddit ➡
Frustrated yet again about having to call the plumbing company to find the source of the problem, he remembered how difficult it is being colorblind at times.

I hope you all can help me, I tried posting to r/whatisthisthing but was told this place might be better.
In my bathroom I have a bathtub/shower and sometimes on the side of it there's this strange light that shows up. Now, it's not shining from the room, because I can't cover it up, it's clearly coming from behind the wall of the tub, you can see the attached pictures and video where I show what it's like.
I live in an apartment, 1st floor, the bathroom is in the back of the unit and not on an exterior wall. There are no electronics in the room either aside from the ceiling light fixture and the air vent.
I've been trying to get this on camera for a while but normally when I run to get my phone or my wife after seeing it, it's gone. Today was the first time I've ever recorded it, it's kind of freaking me out and I'd love to get to the bottom of it.
If this isn't the place to post this, I'm sorry, I'm at my wit's end trying to solve this..
Thank you in advanced!
Edit: thank you all so much, here's an update to the post to show some information requested in the comments section as well as my follow up plans on the matter.
First of all, thank you for all the responses this is the first problem I've brought to reddit and I'm very impressed with the overwhelming level of interest.
It's an interior unit of the 1st floor, one wall of the bathroom is against a third apartments back hallway, the side with the light is most likely against another apartments bathroom, the shape of the building suggests mirrored units.
Aside from the ceiling lights, there are no electronics in the bathroom, not going to lie the first few people to suggest it made me excited that maybe I actually have a whirlpool, but alas I don't.
There is a second floor above my unit, and in the direction of the sun at the most recent time of day I saw it, there is a giant tree and wall along the side.
My first instinct has always been sunlight, but looking at the layout and speed in which it disappears, I'm really not sure that's the case.
A lot of people are suggesting it could be a neighbor's interior light of my hunches are correct, the room behind that wall is also devoid of natural light and missing any exterior walls, the only light would be from their ceiling light..
My next course of action will be to monitor it closely today at 3pm 4pm and 5pm to see if it comes back, I'll be checking it often and frequently, if it's b... keep reading on reddit ➡
So I won’t bore you with a long backstory but the short version is my husband and I are raising our grandchildren. (F2.5) and (M11mo)
Every Sunday he cooks a big meal and we have my mom over for dinner. So today he spent hours cooking this killer chili. It was f’n fantastic!! While cooking he consumed a few beers LOL. Now I always put the baby to bed at 6:30 and at 7 I start getting the older one to bed( she’s usually asleep by 7:30 to 7:45 at the latest. Tonight however all three of them were asleep by 7:30!! I was a day behind my usual bathing schedule, I usually squeeze in a real quick shower during nap time every other day. So quick half the time i don’t even get to shave my legs 😕. Tonight however I decided to take a bath!! I love baths! I filled the bathtub with water as hot as I can stand it and cut me a lovely piece of chocolate cake with whipped icing and preceded to enjoy that delicious cake in a steaming bath. I even got to shave my legs.
Am I wrong for being mad at my fiancé for letting me sleep in the bathtub?
I had a bad stomach ache at like 6:00AM this morning, so he ran a bath to help. I laid in it and eventually fell asleep. Come to find out, I was there for an hour, and when I woke up the water was cold and I was sore from being in the tub for so long. My face was super close to the water when I woke up as well. The only reason I woke up was because my phone alarm went off.
I also woke up to him standing in the bathroom, which he claims was him “checking on me” to “make sure I was still breathing fine”. (???) He claims he checked on me multiple times as the bedroom is right by the bathroom, so the tub is within eyeshot, but I was fairly obscured by the shower curtain.
Something about this just bothers me so badly. He claims he was just being nice and letting me sleep since I looked comfortable and not in pain anymore. But checking to “see if I was breathing”, doing it calmly instead of freaking out if you really weren’t sure someone was breathing, not staying in the bathroom at all, not getting me into bed after a minute or two, etc. something seems weird about it. I’m more convinced he fell asleep or got distracted with his phone. When I was upset with him because I felt like he didn’t care about my well-being, he said he used to sleep in the tub as a kid and didn’t see anything wrong with it?
Please help y’all... I’m so confused over whether or not this a rational thing to be hurt about. He is usually a very considerate/kind person so this just really shocked me and seemed like something he wouldn’t do/not how he would react.
unprompted (!)... he just finally got sick of the smell and soap scum I guess.
For the record, my physical disability makes it difficult and dangerous for me to clean the tub, and have previously injured myself badly trying to do it by myself - so I only clean the tub right before I want to take a bath, which, admittedly, is about once every 3 months. Gross, I know, but I can only do what I can. (I do shower regularly otherwise). I’ve asked him countless times to handle the tub at least once a month (he laughed and flipped me off when I asked him to do it once a week, so I had to let that go). And he has repeatedly made the stupid argument that the tub is ‘automatically clean’ after his daily shower because ‘it all goes down the drain anyway’ and besides “youre the one who takes the baths and needs it clean”. Seriously, UGH. You’d never know he was 40 years old.
So anyway, as soon as he was done cleaning the tub last night, I jumped in and took a much needed bath. He had already closed his bedroom door and, for all intents and purposes, gone to bed. Well, guess who texted me while I was still in the tub? Lol OF COURSE. He wrote: “no thank you for me I guess. I hope you enjoyed your last bath for a while. I won’t be doing that again any time soon”.
I should have expected no less from him. Douche is gonna douche.
I had planned on texting him a ty when I got out, but frankly I don’t see the point in it anymore after that text. I have no doubt that even if I did thank him now, he will bring this up in every future fight and use it against me to prove how ungrateful and selfish I am and how much of a burden my disability is to him.
Naturally today the man-baby is pouting and giving me the extra silent treatment over this lack of a thank you. What-the EFF-ever. Countless times I’ve cleaned the tub, the toilet, the sinks, done the dishes, the laundry, vacuumed, etc and he’s never thanked me in 3 years. Not once. Literally. I am not exaggerating. But now he’s all butthurt and feels entitled to praise because he randomly decided to do a chore Ive been begging for his help with for YEARS!? Yeah, no. Just NO.
I’ve decided to accelerate my timeline to gtfo. I won’t make it to the fall at this point. I am beyond sick of this crap. I’ll be done with my course in mid March and will get take my professional cert exams in April and May, rather than June and July. I can’t take this anymore.

This happened just now, like moments ago.
So my partner is out of town for a funeral. I've never spent a night in our apartment alone.
I decided to take a very long, very hot bath (as I am wont to do) with epsom salts and bath oils. Screw it, a lot of bath oils. Ooo, and a glass of wine.....
Which quickly turns into a bottle of wine.
So now, about an hour later, I'm a drunk prune, and it's time to get out.
Well I drain the water and start trying to stand up, and I swear to heck y'all it's like trying to stand up on a soapy slip-n-slide. I do the Scooby Doo run for a moment, lose what little traction I had gained, and go down like a lead zeppelin.
My wineglass is broken. I have glass in my arse (no you may not see, I am a lady). My head is throbbing (that should make my hangover tomorrow extra lovely). There's a foot somewhere behind my ear.
AND I STILL HAVE TO GET OUT OF THE BATHTUB.
So today I learned not to grease the bathtub when you're alone.... And that I can do the splits!!
Tl;dr: don't use bath oils when you're drinking alone, you might get hurt
I wrestled between writing this for a couple of days now, but I just feel trapped with no one to talk to, and I haven't been able to get it off my mind. I don't want to tell anyone until I'm sure given the context, and while I'm debating telling my mom, I don't know how to go about it, so I wanted to ask here first where no one knows me for reassurance before I do anything
I love both of my parents, and my dad has always been the impromptu fun guy growing up. When I was growing up, I was always into trains, and they bought me this Christmas locomotive set years back, and we still have it here in our garage today. Dad would sometimes play with me and suggest taking a train ride for no reason whatsoever, and sometimes he'd do random candy runs too, and I think those memories are clouding my judgment on this matter. I don't do as much with him now like we used to back then, and some of that was replaced when my sister became that age, although she's the reason why I'm writing this right now
My sister loves watching TV with Dad, and most recently they began watching penn and teller reruns. A couple of weeks ago, Dad ordered some magic stuff to play pretend with her, a set that comes with tutorials on how to do some basic tricks with props, and they pretended to do some tricks together and even put some clips of them trying stuff on facebook with mom
A couple of days ago, dad wanted to show me something on his phone, and I couldn't help but feel very uncomfortable while watching it. The video took place in our upstairs bathroom, and it was supposed to be a water escape in the bathtub. In the video, he had her remove a bathrobe, and she was also wearing a bathing suit underneath. I also felt uncomfortable with the fact that he was recording it, along with putting on toy handcuffs as well. After he showed me, I didn't know what to really think. The only thing I asked was if mom had seen it yet, but he said not yet, and as I'm writing this a few days since, I still don't believe that she has
I'm considering asking her, but I wanted to ask here and get an opinion first, since it's been on my mind and I don't know who else to ask. The majority of their clips have been on facebook except this one, and I don't think mom would like it if she saw it. Dad was also talking a lot in the video and telling her what to do, and my biggest fear is telling mom and potentially ruining our family over it, although it just seemed very inappropriate to me and for her who probabl... keep reading on reddit ➡
THE RESULTS WILL BE VERY SHOCKING

I live in a small town that you’ve probably never heard of. In fact, I’d be surprised if you had heard of it, considering the fact that people have only lived here for a little over twenty years. I ended up here because we are currently under witness protection. I probably shouldn’t get any more specific than that.
For the most part, this town is pretty nice. It had some fun activities and some cool shops that I like to visit, and the people who live here are pretty welcoming. The only odd thing about this place is the dirty old bathtub that sits in a field located a few miles into town.
There’s nothing around the surrounding area, besides the field where the tub is located. Even the field itself is relatively small. If I had to guess, the entire area is about the size of our three-bedroom house.
The tub is pretty normal-looking, as far as tubs go. A white porcelain tub with silver claw feet. It was probably once a decent bathtub, but now it’s dingy and the faucet is rusted. Somehow, it’s all still intact, and it’s also always filled to the brim with murky water.
I noticed it when we first drove into town, but I ignored it, thinking it was probably just a random bathtub that someone had decided to get rid of.
The locals were far too excited to tell me about the weird quirks that involved the tub, however, and so I soon learned the story behind it.
The bathtub has been there since people moved into town, and so no one knows who put it there or why. The only thing that they are sure of, is that every forty-two days, a person comes out of the tub.
I thought they were messing with me at first, but everyone swore up and down that they weren’t making this stuff up. I even talked to a girl, Cheryl, who says she came out of the bathtub three years ago. Cheryl says she has no prior knowledge about her life before coming out of the tub, only that she woke up one day to realize she was drowning in dirty water and sat up only to realize she was in a tub in the middle of a field.
There are others who don’t remember coming out of the tub though, and I’ve been told never to try to bring this up with them. Anytime someone tries to remind them of where they came from, they have some sort of a mental breakdown and have even attempted to kill themselves in the process.
Because of this, every time someone comes out of the bathtub, the townspeople ask them simple vague questions in order to separate those who are aware of where they came out of and those who a... keep reading on reddit ➡
