I hate Baby Boomers, theyre the most wasteful consumption-driven generation of monsters that ever lives on the planet. I just wasted an afternoon dumping a carload of household junk off to goodwill, and it didn't even make a difference. We still have seven fucking cars, and there's only four of us living in the house right now. The irony is that 3 of our cars are electric: Baby boomers buy them because elecrtic is newer just to show off, and not because they give a rats ass about saving the environment.
The house is two stories but the second floor is unlivable. The junk literally piles to the ceiling because Boomers are hoarders and don't want to throw give away anything they ever came into possesion of. There's old stereos, never used exercise equipment, about 12 computers/laptops. There's a ton of electronics just rotting in the backyard because they couldn't bear to get rid of anything. It includes a thousand dollar portable air conditioning, unit, a stove, bikes, and some power tools--all rusting!
The backyard and sideyard are narrow because of all the rusting BBQ equipment, plywood, and pots they never used. We have 3 sheds and 2 garages and an attic and 4 rooms downstairs that we can't use because the junk literally blocks the doors. One of the cars is almost unusable because all the seats and the trunk are full of junk, and she even paid for storage at a garage this month to hold more stuff because we've ran oit of space at the house.
Unlike the Baby Boomers, I'm an adult and I'm trying to clean my own room. I gave away all my old vidya consoles, and my violin. But we have 6 guitars we quit using a month after purchased them for lessons. The 2 living rooms are so full of pots and unopened electronic cooking equipment that the sofas are stacked toward the ceiling, and you have to walk sideways to get through the narrow halls. I gave away 40 pairs of shoes today (and half of them were new or leather) because Baby Boomers have a shoe fetish. It's just one of 4 shoeracks that are full,l of shoes, and she just bought another shoe rack. Fuck.
I now give some of it away without asking, because they're all McScrooges and will say no if you ask, even though they don't even remember what they have because they haven't looked at it or even gone into some of those cabinets for 20 years.
One time a relative breifly stayed in our house and she stole and mailed a hundred DVDs and about 5 boxes of junk we didn't need to a third world shithole, and the Baby Boomers were pissed and kicked her out. I think we should've given away the hundreds of DVDs to a library before they were obsolete, but I'm doing that now. They're only willing to let me get rid of them because they stopped using their 3D Bluerays, and have satelite and subscriptions to netflicks, Hulu, Amazon, and some others.
But it feels so pointless because no matter how much I try to make living space for myself and my pets, and to redistribute the wealth they would waste to poor people at Goodwill, every single week about 20 new boxes of new junk get delivered by Amazon. I hate Baby Boomers. The definition of stupidity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a differnt result. You would have thought they would have realized by now that collecting indoor mountains of junk doesn't make you happy. I'm a simple guy, but they're just robbing me of my injeritance, and making China rich,and making the UPS burn more fossil fuels in the process.
