    Default Hoarding - The Marathon...

    I'm sorry...I found this SO funny.

    Anyone watch the TV show 'Hoarders'? Today they had a marathon of back-back episodes...the kids thought I was nuts...I was laughing at the concept...

    I can understand some of the psychology behind hoarding. I get it that objects carry memories.

    But I don't understand the garbage part. I don't understand why you'd have a memory attached to used kleenexes, poop, empty food containers...stuff like that...

    At any rate...while watching what I could of the marathon (I amuse easily) I did a bunch of dusting and threw out a garbage bag of old magazines and other 'stuff' I certainly don't need...very therapeutic...I feel better now...

    I agree, one of the simple stupid pleasures I find in life is throwing out a bunch of stuff I had laying around that I didn't really need when I'm cleaning up the place. I'm not one to just let things sit around, especially when there's so many animals around me and not much space to put them in. My girlfriend on the other hand is probably just about the opposite of me, so I'm always cleaning up after her . We're opposites in many ways and the saying definitely does hold true lol.

    My house isn't as clean as I'd like it...but with my critters and the kids (and hubby ) I can't be as anal as I'd like either...so I do get stressed out about the dust and dirt periodically.

    Maybe because I complain and nag about it, the kids are bugging me in return...and they're succeeding.

    Today one episode featured a woman who also had 57 birds...

    My 15-year old says, "Mom! Look! She's JUST like you!"

    ...er, yeah...except she has 52 MORE birds and dead compressed rats flattened between layers of garbage...

    I watched a show similar to Hoarders,long time ago can't remember the name but it was a young couple with a small child,and the girl finally convinced hubby to get rid of the crap.

    Long story short,he was fine until they hauled out his massive collection of empty fish tanks of various sizes-filled up the whole front lawn. When the workers started to haul them off,he went nutso on everyone and refused to let them go. Short time later,the tv crew convinced him they would not be trashed but instead donated to people who would use them and not just throw them away.

    Wish I was there that day.

    Remember a couple of years ago in FL they found some hoarder dead until a pile of trash in her yard. She had been missing for some time, family come to clean up the mess and there she was.......under a huge stack of crap that had fallen on her.

    There is no excuse for these people, honestly. A collector is one thing but those people disgust me. Without therapy, I expect all those cleaned houses will return to the same thing. I think most are just plain lazy.

    ...some likely are lazy...but I think most of them are ill...you can see they're just not 'getting' it.

    I wonder if their 'after-care' therapy ever sets out scheduales for them to follow? You know;

    Monday: Empty garbage cans, take trash to curb.
    Tuesday: Clean Bathrooms
    Wednesday: Vacuum

    ...etc. and then make them follow through. If you just go there and clean their house for them...all that does is let them 'get away with it'. All they learn is if they let it go on long enough, someone bails them out. And then when people get tired of bailing them out...they look so hurt! Like no one ever tried to help them...
