I judge - house edition

What do you judge when you go to a person's house? (Yes I have a motive for this thread lol)

Re: I judge - house edition

  • When the people under the stairs scream too loudly, I judge.

  • stupid crap is unfinished that just seems like no big deal to fix up...I can't think of any good examples...
  • Jas, do you judge the screamers or the people that own them?

  • Dirty dishes. I'm not talking about a few well rinsed plates that haven't been put in the dishwasher yet, or a stray glass here and there. I'm talking about that half empty glass of red wine that's been on your coffee table every time I've been over in the last month. That actually happened. Or if I can smell your dishes. I know washing dishes is a PITA, but seriously, even handwashing an entire sinkful (both sides) doesn't take more than 20 minutes.

  • People who leave stuff everywhere, like dishes, books, flyers, etc. It only takes a few minutes to put stuff somewhere, not in piles all over the table, the living room, etc.

  • The people that own them. There is such a thing as a ball gag.

  • If the bathroom is dirty or they don't have soap. Who seriously doesn't have hand soap in their BATHROOM? This was mostly a college issue.

    Note to self, gag people under stairs.
  • Also, dog or cat pee smell. I have four dogs, so I'm not judgy about how many animals you have, believe me, I get it. I get judgy when you either don't train your animals properly, don't clean out their litter often enough, and then don't clean up after them properly. I have two chihuahuas that I cannot for the life of me break of peeing on the rug. So the rug gets vacuumed at least twice a week and steam cleaned once a month.

    LOVE.


    I judge a lot of clutter - like the kind where you'd say "geez, how long did it take to get like this?"  And ditto the dirty dishes/old food in pots on the stove.
  • When their house smells like their pet, or their litter. Often the people who live there are so used to it that they don't notice, but I do.

    I don't judge too much else. I don't have much room to talk about anything else.

  • Their books, particularly if they don't have any. 

    image
  • People who don't clean their litter boxes.

    People who don't cut their grass.

    People who paint their exteriors really tacky colors.

    Too much junk in the front yard.

    I was going to say this but LC took the words out of my mouth.  It's entirely possible to own pets and NOT have your house smelling like shiit.  Figure it out.

    Overall cleanliness is important.  I'm not the neatest person in the world but I've been to places where just sitting on the couch doesn't... feel... right. 

    My aunt has early hoarding tendencies, I believe.  Which drives me crazy because whenever we are out to visit, she's always hounding us to go hang out with her at their house, stay the night, etc.  Their house is gross and there are two rooms you can't even go in because they are crammed full of stuff.  They live in a three bedroom apartment with their five year old son, and are down two bedrooms because they are used to just throw shiit. 

    Where does the little boy sleep since his bedroom is full of crap?  With his parents.  UGH!

  • Ditto the no soap in the bathroom...that's just gross.

    Also, I judge people that have a beautifully landscaped yard, but the inside is filthy.  If you only have time for one, clean your freaking house, don't live in filth.

    Yes.  The worst is when you are over at someone's place for dinner and you get up to use the bathroom and you have that epiphany moment where you think "um, if they don't keep handsoap, did they wash their hands before they prepared what they fed me?!"

    Heh heh.  "Back door guests."
  • I take serious pride in our house (and our old apt) not smelling like animals. I also vacuum every other day to make sure that happens.

    My big thing is trash bins being empty, especially if you are inviting people over (verses having people drop in). Take the 5 minutes and empty them, no one wants to see your bathroom trash while they pee.

    But Heels, I love my cheesy magnets, are they ok? I have one that has a picture of a big black cat that says "I'm not fat I'm fluffy" and another that says "I understand the concept of cooking and cleaning, just not how they apply to me."

  • Sigh- I shouldnt talk because lately my house is a disaster... but when people come over- its perfect. I refuse to allow people over if there is anything messy.

    but on my list:

    - walking in and smelling pets. I agree with you guys- its possible to have a clean smelling home with pets. We have two very furry cats but you'd never know it walking in. We always keep things clean.

    - dirty bathroom- come on- disgusting!

    - clutter

    Ditto.

    I actually hate frames or anything with words. Like a big frame that says "Family." No shiit? You don't just have pictures of random strangers?
    Or teh "Live.Laugh. Love." ones. Don't tell me what to do picture frame.

    This. I.e. my FFIL.

    People who can't clean up after their pets. Like if I walk into your house and am overwhelmed by the smell of the litter box every time. I understand letting it go an extra day or two occassionally, but not if you expect to have people over and not ALL the time.

  • Ummm, you guys are never coming to my house. 

    In my defense, we're renovating.  It's really hard to get it up to dust and vacuum and that when we're constantly sanding drywall.

    That, and I know I'm a slob.

    Oh I HATE this.  My aunt's house is like this and we always stay with her when we're in town.  I have to wash everything after I leave.  Either don't let your pets on the couch or use a darn lint roller before I come over.
