One home I was in, the shepherd used the kitchen sponges to clean up the floor and toilet when it overflowed - no lie. I was so disgusted and refused to use them in the kitchen again. He was very insistent - even boiled them. I still said no. I was labelled rebellious and unspiritual from that point on.
Then when I was pregnant and horribly nauseous, he made us eat scrambled eggs with liver in them every morning for breakfast. I couldn't even look at it let alone eat it. I was wretching all morning long. His answer was to make me get up at 5 am and hit the corner red lights for canning every morning at 6 am so I would be hungry enough to eat when breakfast came around. So, sick as a dog, that is what I did. It didn't help with the scrambled eggs, though. But it didn't really matter, I already had the rebellious label.
Gosh, when I think about the things we tolerated sometimes....
