I don't follow your logic, kiddo. Doesn't everybody in your household have their own towel? Or... do you expect that everybody uses a towel only once, then places it in the hamper soaking wet, and then puts a new towel on the rack? Me, I use towels for a few days before they go in the laundry, unless they're really dirty. (It would be really expensive and take up a ton of space to have a set of towels for every day of the week.) Between uses, they sit on the rack to dry. When I was a kid, each had our own bath towel, and would do the same thing. If you leave wet towels in the hamper for a few days, they're going to get moldy and gross - that's why you let them dry out, first. You're not going to die from using the same towel as a blood relative.
And this is an FML? Have a shower again, use a clean towel and you'll be fine....
"Icky"? Really? I am sure Op has shared drinks with her family. Also, I am sure the towels get washed after a week. If the mother is aware the family puts the dirty towels on the rack, then she knows where to get them to be washed. This is not an FML, this is a "eww" moment and then you know not to use those towels. Op is stupid. My family does the same thing. I am just aware of what towel is mine and which is theirs. Now Op knows to stop being lazy and get her own towel.
Dirty... towels? I'm assuming you mean the towels people use to dry themselves off once they get out of the shower? After they get out of the shower... clean?
This is why you don't reuse towels, I would get a new towel each time I took a shower when I was living at home. I don't want to dry my face off in the same place someone used it to buttfloss.
I don't understand how this happened. If you use your own towel, instead of whatever towel happens to be hanging on the rack, you wouldn't have this problem. In my family, we each had 5 towels each in a different color. We only used our color of towel. Now that I'm living with my husband, we just each use whatever towel we pull out of the drawer, and hang it up in our own spot so we don't use each other's. Why would you use a towel that's not yours hanging on the rack in the bathroom? Weird.
Not every family does it that way though! In my family there were two towels of the same color hanging in the bathroom that my brother and I shared. I was usually the first to take a shower but who knows what towel my brother grabbed because they were just hung up again until they were washed over the weekend.
I'm sure I said No when this came on moderation. This really isn't a big deal at all unless your family all have psoriasis or something.
