Household trends you're noticing...

I’ve noticed a lot of people put their living room tables behind their settees now. Can’t get away from it. I mean, sure, i get it, you want to work and watch TV, but it’s a fucking nonsense, mate.

Also noticed more and more people have rooms with just, like a wardrobe and a big chair in. Not a walk-in cupboard, but a whole small room. Again, i understand the logic, a different room to get dressed in while your partner’s still sleeping, but the old system of just throwing your gear on in the front room whilst watching the breakfast news was a guddun.

In short, if your table’s behind your telly or you have a whole room just to put your undies on in you’re a penis. On the plus side, glad to see papasan chairs have made a comeback.

Shoot…

Also noticing lots of people displaying their mini hoovers again.

Never been a fan, but proof that everything works in thirty year cycles, eh.

Always prefered the mount the holster on the inside of a cupboard method.

exactly how many people

and how big the chair

Wick away moisture/smell from your work surfaces/furniture/skin.

You’ll start to notice it, and then you won’t be able to stop.

Is that a threat?

I have never heard this phrase before. I am scared to hear the phrase and the resulting anger it will cause me.

I have encountered this mainly with socks and shirts, didn’t know it had breached the divide to household stuff too. Wick my breath away.

Hate this, we’re sticking our telly in the corner of our lounge in our new place and getting everyone’s focus off it as much as possible. Only ever really watch it at dinner time anyway, or if we’re doing films. One of the first questions my in-laws asked about the house was whether it had a TV point in the kitchen. I don’t need a TV in the bloody kitchen! Are you going to ask me if there’s one in the bathroom too?

Also TV point, lol hello is this the 90s? Shall I call you on my carphone to discuss it?
