I have a house hunting show I used to watch regularly, but it is really starting to get on my nerves. It seems like all of the women on the show want a white kitchen and all of the men want a man cave. I am not saying that these are not common wants, but it is like watching the same show all of the time with different people being featured.
Another thing that grinds my gears is the fact that none of the couples on the show can agree about the style of home they like. Someone on the show always wants some kind of old Victorian with charm, yet their spouse always wants something that is more sleek and modern. I am starting to believe that a lot of this is scripted since it did not happen as often when I watched earlier seasons.
The other night I was watching an episode that showed this couple from Antioch (where I am from) that had totally different ideas of what makes a great home. I almost tore my hair out while watching them squabble about things like whether or not the place should have a laundry chute and how close the neighbors should be.
As we all know, there is usually going to be a difference of opinion when two people get together, but that should be settled long before they get on the television screen. The way they are doing it now, it always looks like one of the people is a brat and the other one is forced to deal with that.
This is probably why I have stayed single for so many years. That way I can go house hunting in Antioch and find a gem without anyone arguing with me about the choices I want to make.
