I think this is the MOST well-designed conspiracy ever formulated and I’m really sick of it:
Plumbing and all those ‘accessories’ like pop-up stoppers - create a huge petri-dish of sweltering, everyday bacteria, fungus and other assorted allergins, these things are nearly impossible to clean and maintain, are a nuisance and I’m in a quandry as to why on earth they were ever invented - BUT they keep plumbers working
Carpet and all the accessories like stripping and padding - once installed they imprison the entire flooring of any building providing again, a huge petri-dish of sweltering, everyday bacteria, fungus and other assorted allergins, these things are nearly impossible to clean and maintain, are a nuisance and I’m in a quandry as to why on earth they were ever invented BUT, they keep carpet cleaners in business including the manufacturers of sweepers and all those accessories
Cupboards - which were apparently designed by 6’ 6” CRUSHER men mainly for women who must use ladders to reach.
Windows made of plastic springs and hardware that crack and crumble as soon as the weather changes or that are FAR too heavy or wedged too tightly to lift and keep clean (I like cottage windows that wind outward)
These are just a few of the most heniously devised inventions that I believe are subversivly marketed as being time savers, energy savers, economically viable etc. but the true intent is to keep the various sub entities deliriously happy because we have to keep buying ‘other’ products to help us use the first ones or keep them maintained.
Meanwhile, all those jars of goodies I’ve just purchased from the grocery are still unopenable and can’t even be budged with the wedge-design-super-dooper-open-anything thingy. Give me a hammer and I’ll just carefully either remove the glass shards or learn to eat them.
