This $1M House Has a Wildly Bizarre Feature and People Can't Cope
Outlets. They're never where you want 'em. The living room plug is always too far away from the couch. And then there's that perfectly placed outlet in the kitchen, right above where you'd like your Keurig... But it doesn't work. So becomes an extension cord hellscape. You start to wonder what it's all for, this electricity stuff. And then you finally find an apartment in the UK that has a crap ton of outlets. You're clicking through the pictures. You're thinking, is there mutant dust on my screen? Because there are literally 30 black dots that look like plug sockets, all over the walls of this living room, that bedroom. You're dizzy. You can't believe your eyes.
"The accommodation briefly comprises of a bright and spacious entrance hallway with doors leading to all rooms," the Pinner High Street listing says. "The dining room enjoys a bay window adding a natural flow of light into the property. To the rear aspect is a reception room which benefits a fireplace, wooden floors and access to a conservatory."
Your eyes dart across the screen. Where is the mention of a million outlets? Is this the norm on Pinner High Street?
You scroll through the photos again. You post it to Twitter.
Everyone freaks out.
I thought you were exaggerating a little until I got to picture 6 (5/20 of course). Then it descended into madness, and the uplighters on the skylights had me howling (picture 11).— Peter B (@PBSport) November 2, 2019
But the best thing is that there doesn't appear to be a shaver socket in any of the bathrooms🤷♂️
Me, taking the bait: how funny! I bet there are loads of sockets, or they’re poorly placed! What larks!— Rowanne Westhenry (@agirlintheshed) November 2, 2019
I still wasn’t ready
Are all those things on the walls light sockets? Gee the owner must’ve been afraid of the dark or things that go bump in the night. Something is odd about that house. Hm— Annita Talarico (@apapenbrovk) November 2, 2019
Yet not a single toothbrush charging-point in any of the bathrooms. I’d be so triggered I’d have to burn it down.— Alex the Guiri (@AlexTheGuiri) November 1, 2019
Going out on a limb and gonna say this was either a drug dealing enterprise, or the house that Babestation is run from.— D (@VBloody7NowFFS) November 2, 2019
Before seeing this I'd have said you can never have too many but it turns out I was wrong...— Hypothetical Tom (@beardsandennui) November 1, 2019
I like to think this was a really passive aggressive act towards the end of a failing marriage when one of them yelled “and we need more plug sockets” so the other person obliged and now they’re divorced and selling the house and both moving to houses with less plug sockets.— La Castillo (@hellshousewife) November 1, 2019
You turn off your laptop because it's about to die and the charger is plugged into a corner of the room where your desk does not fit. After you set your laptop on the floor and go over to the couch to sit in that strange position required to view the television, which is restricted to a different bizarre corner due to a depressing lack of outlets, you begin to question everything.
