Phobia of Hairs in your food - Jonnyjonny_uk - 12-07-2007 08:49 PM

If I find a hair on my plate or in my food I cannot finish it. It totally disgusts me and it really doesnt matter how nice the meal is and even if I know who the hair belongs to and I know its clean I still cant carry on eating. Is anyone else the same as me?

I hate that, As you said john, it is disgusting. When i find hair in my food, i walk away.

That bothers me aswell; finding a hair in my food. I also wont finish the plate if I do find a hair.

I get annoyed but I'd probably just eat it anyway, hehehehe.

I wish I could be like that too but trust me I love my food and even my favourite dish would be left if I found a hair.

I have never vomited before on finding a hair, thats a pretty serious phobia of hairs on food. I can think of much worse things to find on fruit though so she was lucky.

I totally agree with the disgusting nature of hair in food. Since I was a child I've freaked out when I find a hair in my food and cannot continue eating. I really don't see this as a phobic reaction. A phobia is an irrational fear of something. 1. This is disgust, not fear and 2. It's not irrational. Who knows to whom this hair belongs in my food or where it's been. Could it be from someone who's not washed their hair in a week? Or how about someone who has lice? You just never know.

I really don't understand what's so disgusting about a hair? Is your hair that dirty really? I would say hair is a pretty clean part of a human body, of course if you do wash it regularly which I assume you do. It never bothers me when I find a hair in my food, it's usually my own hair anyway lol.


Re: Hairs in your food - Jonnyjonny_uk - 02-06-2008 12:14 PM

I know what your saying Ellen but I just always assume the hair to come from someone who is very dirty and has greasy hair. But you are right most peoples hair is clean.

Personally, if I'm paying for a meal and find a hair in it - yes I complain.
If it's at home and I find a hair in it - I still complain but I'm less likely to get my money back or a replacement meal!

I know it's not come from me - I shave my head.

I have no idea on the scientific cleanliness or not on hair, but I am not keen to do a personal trial! Perhaps I will make it a research project to find out about hair-dirt?

Half a worm.

Re: Hairs in your food - Dreamer_15 - 02-07-2008 02:37 AM

ugh its discusting finding a hair in your food int it :| i once found a whisker/hair in my curry from the chinese not so long ago...ewwww! and i LOVED those curries from there, but i just couldnt eat the rest of it. ugh. but if its my own hair or someone im blood related to its not so bad.


Re: Hairs in your food - Ellen - 02-07-2008 04:55 PM

I definitely would complain if I found a hair in a restaurant meal, but not because it's disgusting but because it's just not right. I would probably feel a lot worse if i found a fly or something LOL!

Mr. Ian :laugh:



Re: Hairs in your food - Jonnyjonny_uk - 02-09-2008 09:03 AM

If I found a fly in my food I would deffinetly be put of going to that restaurant for life thats for sure. A hair is hard enough to cope with so I better not start thinking about flys.

Whats the worst things anyone has found in there food before?
