Thank you for reinforcing the stereotype. Has the phrase ‘different strokes for different folks’ ever been mentioned to you? Not everyone thinks their place is their castle and puts every waking moment into it. To me, HGTV is one big commercial (and a dangerous one at that—- I think they and other home design shows were partially responsible for bringing down the economy by telling everyone their home design was out of date and then the commercials were banks telling you to borrow against your home. Oh no, I don’t have stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, time to use my house as an ATM to keep up with the Joneses! Look what happened). I do have a sense of pride— in my professional accomplishments, personal relationships, and how I can make the world a better place. I have zero sense or interest in design or decorating. The thought of maintaining a yard makes me want to vomit. To me owning a home would be a money pit and not something that I care to do, like ever. And I have been through a lifetime of home renovations as a child (to HGTV addict parents who always find something wrong with their house) to last a dozen lifetimes. To me, a bathroom is a place to take a shit, not a canvass to design your dream. As long as it works, then I’m happy. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. As for nice things—- I’d rather have experiences than stuff. If not wanting to own a house (the American Dream is more like the American Nightmare) makes me immature, then so be it. I’ll wear that badge proudly.
