Crazy EBay Mom

The messiest office thread reminded me of this. I think this is a repost but from so long ago...it's so worth posting again. It was originally posted on the SomethingAwful forums, but I think this link is work safe for all.

I kept getting the urge to sneeze just looking at all the dust on everything. I think I would move out of the house rather than live in that mess. It's bad when you have to go outside just to change your mind. And how the hell do you explain to people that you can't invite them in because your a slob who's addicted to Ebay. Just think of all the money they could have saved by not buying useless crap!

I could never live in that house. The crap and dust alone would drive me nuts.

man it's times like this when I wish I could have taken pictures of my ex-fiances grandmothers house. It was 10x worse than those pictures. You know when you goto a store and you walk through the isles? That's how her house was, from the front door to anywhere in the house were 2ft wide walkways. From the front door to the couch, then to the kitchen sink, then too the bathroom, then too the bedroom. If you strayed from the path you'd be lost in oblivion.

That student should open an Ebay store selling that stuff unbeknownst(sp) to his/her mom. Would make good money for tuition, books, & partying.














OH, probably would end up back in the house, bought by mom!

Dang - if that was my mom's place, I'd make sure the insurance is paid up and burn the bastard down. There's NO WAY I'd get stuck cleaning that place out if/when my mom passed away or something.

What's sick is that there are tons of people like that. I have a buddy who showed me his parents house in McHenry. His old bedroom was filled with stacks of newspaper - like they were afraid to throw anything out. His folks bedroom was so full of shite, that they would sleep on a sleeper sofa in the living room every night. Also - the fridge in the kitchen didn't work, but the one in the garage did. Never got around to swapping them out so they routinely make trips to the (detached) garage for food! They also have about 2 or 3 non working vehicles in the driveway and an old riding lawn mower in the middle of the back yard. My buddy said it broke down and it's been sitting ever since (years).
