I still think its wierd but my car ran great, no codes, no wierd idle, same great mileage, same performance, etc...

You sound like the wife whose husband always beats her, but its ok because "he loves me".

The hose is a poorely engineered piece of shit. Just admit it. I have 20 year old hoses on my bronco that still work, including the PCV hose which BTW I could replace in about 10 minutes and that includes the time to open my first beer, finish it while working and go for a second.
