What is something that is considered as "normal" but is actually unhealthy, toxic, unfair or unethical?

It was one of the very very few things about my Dad that pissed me off. When I was 16 my ear drum burst in the middle of the night. The next morning I said I have to go to the doctor and not school. He said "Channel, are you sure you can't go to school?" I showed him the bloody rag I had on my ear all night.

To his credit, when we got to the ear doctor he demanded I be seen immediately. Like a "I'm not leaving this window till you see my son" kind of demand.

So, I guess it doesn't upset me that much.turns out that my ear drums are the size of a 4 year olds and my other ear was about to burst too. They had to cut it with a laser to avoid anymore damage.
