Dumb and dumber.

I'm going to call bullsh!t on this. How can someone live in a space and not have opened every drawer, cupboard, and door? Especially in the kitchen, where most people grab any storage space available.

In Australia, by now, it would have been full of snakes.

One step beyond dumb is being dumb enough to advertise the fact on the Internet along with photographs.

I'm with MOTW on this one.

Somewhat related,

When we bought our house close to 40 years ago, we didn't have much money as we were just starting out in business for ourselves. We had very little money at hand and could not afford to turn on the air conditioner. So, for several months until it just got so hot we had to turn it on we never even tried the air conditioner. The inspector for the seller had reported the air worked. The air would not come on at all. We called the repair people and they said a new motor would have to be put in, the existing motor was 'locked up', bad. We also noticed a water pump was non functional when the seller's inspector had declared as working. So, we paid hundreds of dollars for the new motors for the air conditioner and water pump motors.

We contacted the seller, the agent and so forth, and asked for the seller to reimburse us. Absolutely not, "now way you sat in that house all summer without turning on the air." So, we took the seller to small claims court. At the hearing the seller's real estate agent brought in newspaper accounts of the daytime temperatures during the months we did not turn the air conditioner on. Said it was not possible we sat there those months without using the air conditioner. Long story short here. We explained to the judge we had recently moved here and were just starting out in business and could not afford the cost of running the air conditioner and did not turn it on for months after buying the house. He agreed and we got our reimbursement. Last one a few years ago got the judgement against her my my favor and said, "no way I'm paying you." She was nasty, but she paid. We were contemplating to have the Sheriff's office come to her business and start taking her things. When we sent her a bill including interest allowed by law, she paid. I did have a judge kick me out of a court room one time for refusing to STFU. He apologized to me at the next hearing and ruled in our favor.

I have had some really strange business related small court experiences over the years. I won every time.

correction,

Reminds of the a scene from the show "Fresh Off the Boat" where mom has covered up the dishwasher control panel and persuaded her family the whole thing is simply a drying rack.

Speaking as one married to a fine lady of Chinese descent, I can assure you this happens in real life, not just comedy shows.

Mike Smith - I understand. Our ice maker went out the other day. We have a portable ice maker we are using until the refrigerator can be replaced. Mrs man tom wants to wait until like the 4th of July when there's a sale. If the darned .99 cent store carried appliances we would get it a LOT sooner.

Let's hope the toilet paper wasn't in a hidden cupboard also.

Totally believable. After living in our new home for nearly four years we had houseguests visit for a weekend. My husband gave them a tour of the house and pointing to the trash compactor told them that it was the dishwasher. My husband is a writer with no evident knowledge of life on this planet. Innocent and possibly strategic incompetence has gotten him out of almost all household chores.

Totally UN-believable.
A TRUE bachelor would be using paper plates.
