I'm hatewatching HGTV because I had a minor surgery and I'm stuck in bed and why not make the pain worse. So far we've had:
- The couple that want to share a 450 sq.ft. tiny house with their fifteen year old son, who will now sleep in an open loft with no sound insulation or privacy. Enjoy falling asleep to the sounds of furtive adolescent masturbation until he goes to college.
- The woman with three small sons and one almost adult stepdaughter, whose first words to the camera were, "My husband and I have been living in this house since *before* we had any children", and then correcting herself to mean "children together" while her stepdaughter looked into the camera with dead eyes (the stepdaughter got a bedroom in the basement of the new house, and when asked her views, said "I'm going to college pretty soon" and we all felt her relief)
- Atleast five different families who expressed concern that their tiny house was, in fact, tiny
- A couple looking to buy a houseboat whose major concern was that the house boat 'rocked' and 'didn't have any yard space' (The realtor recommended getting a kayak instead)
I can't believe these people are real. These shows are astonishingly sad.
