Please do not urine on the toliet seat. Thank you very much. We aim to please; you aim too, please.

170124e

We don’t make this stuff up, folks. These are actual photos from a house for sale. Check out the hole in the wall behind the toilet.

170124a

Cluttered bedroom.

170124d

Another cluttered bedroom. The description of the house states that the owners moved out and left their items behind.

170124f

The new buyer gets to handle all of this.

170124b

This bedroom is used as a crafts room. Notice the Wasp & Hornet Killer spray can.

170124c

Double oven.

170124g

Pink ceiling in the family room. It almost looks like carpet! Two oxygen tanks in the corner, because this house will take your breath away.

170124h

No smoking.

170124j

And we’re told the air conditioning does not work.

The Love Tub

January 22nd, 2017 · 1 Comment

Romantic heart-shaped bathtub for two! Bring on the bubbles and the bubbly!

170122reginasask1

These were sent from our reader Landon. This is from his 1983 Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada home. The bathtub is surrounded by 8″ tile and smoked glass mirrors (typical of the 1980s). The house had seafoam green/blue carpet, mahogany wood trim, parquet wood flooring, and Zest-soap-colored countertops.
