Fear of hair and washing

Had a roommate in college who would wake me up in the morning and ask me to check the bathroom to see if there was hair on the soap. There never was but he was so terrified there would be that he had to ask me to check or he couldn't use the bathroom.

(He had his own private bathroom growing up (only child) and developed a phobia to using other peoples bathroom)

I cured him of his fear by wrapping several strands of hair around a bar of soap and chasing him around the apartment until he wasn't afraid of it any more.

Inspiration for this piece :) (5 years and 1553 days ago)

if its a fear of washing wouldn't be the soap dry and even cracked (nice idea)

author says:

too true reap, but it's the fear of washing with soap that has hair on it, so the soap would have hair recently left on it by someone else, now that I think about it, I can see why that would be a phobia, oh man, I just grossed my self out by thinking about it, OMG YUCK (What have I done? Oh the humanity)

Poor guy... I don't know if it was the best technique used, but you were the best psychologist, certainly!

ps: I am only child too, but thanks to God I don't have anything like that!

I love the idea but you'd probably be better off without the strange background and putting it in a more mundane setting. Just my opinion.
