10+ People Share The Things They’ve Been Doing Wrong For Years

Time for me to admit something: Up until I was sixteen-years-old, I thought that there was a company called FRAGGLE that made moving boxes (pronounced FRAG-ELLE), and that everyone got their cardboard boxes from the FRAGGLE company warehouse. Turns out, all moving boxes say FRAGILE on the side, not FRAGGLE.

As embarrassing as that is, I am by no means alone in learning life-changing knowledge a little later than most people. Some folks do things based on completely incorrect information their entire lives before they’re taught properly. My Fraggle thing may be weird, but trust me—it isn’t the craziest thing you’ll hear today.

1. Softy

A young woman didn’t understand why a lady at the laundry mat kept yelling at her every time she did her laundry, and eventually just assumed that she was putting the detergent in the machine wrong.

“Turns out I’ve been washing my clothes with only fabric softener for nearly a decade,” she admitted, “They always smelled good so I never really thought about it.”

2. The Muffin Man

“When I was a kid, I was told that the paper that came on cupcakes/muffins was edible,” one man explained, “I would spend a decade eating them like this (paper and all), until a friend pointed it out.”

3. BANDit

“I taught myself how to play clarinet,” one girl wrote, “Six months later someone told me that I’d been playing with the mouthpiece upside down.”

4. Short And Stout

This teen admitted that when he was little, he used to fill the kettle by the spout.

“I thought the center part was mainly for decoration, but not functional. I don’t know why I never questioned this.”

5. Pants On The Ground

“I used to pull my pants down all the way at the urinal,” one user wrote, “ALL the way down.”

6. It’s Lit

“Found out I was lighting incense wrong,” a woman explained, “Boyfriend and I got a bunch to add to our collection of nice smells and we would light them and they would just start a little inferno. Convinced we were buying cheap, garbage incense we stopped using them. Roommate informs us you are supposed to blow them out once they catch. Oops.”

7. Itchy And Scratchy

“I always thought eggplant tasted ‘itchy'”, one woman attempted to explain, “Like itchy was a flavor, like sour or salty. Fed some to my baby and his face turned red wherever the eggplant touched, and I realized we’re both just allergic to eggplant. And itchy isn’t a flavor.”
