Make Like a Hermit Crab (53 Myspace views)

31 Dec


This blog is going to make me sound like a curmudgeon, but seriously. . .  I’m sure there’s more, but this is what I can think of at the moment. You don’t have to be crabby to notice when something is impractical.  Impractical Features of Houses I’ve Lived In:
Suspended walls—hello ALL bathrooms everywhere should have walls to the ceiling!
Toilets that don’t even flush toilet paper
Heat-sensitive counter tops.  Isn’t the point of a counter putting things ON it–this would make anyone grouchy!
White carpet in the living area
White tile in the dining room or bathroom—unless you want to clean it 24/7
White furniture + pets (or kids) = hairy, dirty mess
Washer and dryer in the master bathroom.
Patio Furniture that can’t get wet—who makes these things???
Sidenote:  Like most people, I thought it would be cool to live in a house.  What I didn’t realize was houses are time-suckers.  It takes major time maintaining the cleanliness and working order of a house and yard.  I may be an old coot, but I think it’s a full-time job.  Add in pets and you might as well just tend to your responsibilities from dawn to dusk—sheesh.
