Today, my dad went to a hardware store to replace the broken shower head in my bathroom. He got the cheapest shower head he could find, and so when I took a shower, the shower head burst out and hit me square in the face. FML

It can't have been loose, or it would have simply fallen off, not "burst." It's more likely that the shower head was designed to be used with a lower water pressure, or that the shower head itself has a manufacturing flaw that caused insufficient space for the water to flow through. Maybe even both.

27, it absolutely could have been loose. Think about it: it's on tightly enough that it won't fall off by itself, but will after some water pressure builds up. Especially if he crossthreaded it or stripped the threads.
