Being married like a good portion of folks are, we all remember the first parts of the relationship between us and our spouses quite well and with great detail.
The reason being is that we were still trying to feel out the habits of the person we would end up spending the rest of our lives with.
Case in point, when I met my wife over a decade ago I wouldn’t exactly clean my car up every week. Hell, sometimes being a guy at the time, I would old soda bottles pile up until it took an act of Congress to get them to remove all of it.
This is why I am so lucky that my wife did not run as fast as she could the second she opened up my trunk to put groceries in the first time and saw that the trunk looked like something headed to the town dump.
Let’s be honest here. I was expecting something completely different when I came across these pictures. Maybe a happy, feel good story about a dude that goes above and beyond at the prospect of some companionship. Maybe a nerdy guy that does something amazing to score an amazing hottie. With the following photos looking like something on the cutting room floor from the TV show ‘Hoarders,’ disgusting HAD to be a part of the title.
To make things worse, the thing that finally motivates this guy to pick himself up out of the gutter is the prospect of a potential hookup.
Welcome To My Home: How would you feel walking into this atrocious mess?
Trash Avalanche: This mess is getting to the point where it could come down and kill someone.
Mess: Not only is this a mess, it’s a fire hazard. Look at the pile of trash just leaning against the radiator.
Dishes On The Couch: I was always told that dirty dishes were to be put in the sink and cleaned… But what do I know?
Foot Of The Bed: Is that a mattress pad wadded up at the foot of the bed?
Sleeping Area: It looks like the only clean spot on the floor is a little area swept aside so this guy could put on his shoes. Definitely not a welcoming place for female companionship.
Dining Area: I’m guessing that a simple solution to the heaping piles of trash would be a garbage can in the house. Maybe, I know this is crazy, the trash could be taken out of the house once in a while.
The Oven And Countertops: I can’t decide if this looks like overflowing food and grease splattering, or if there’s been critters using the stove top as a restroom facility.
Kitchen: Looks like he’s cleared away, scratch that, kicked aside enough of a pathway to still get to what’s important… The food making machine! The trash starts to pile up.
Kitchen Counter: I think I just threw up in my mouth a little… I can only imagine the putrid stench of decaying food fermenting in different levels through this grotesque mountain of filth.
Kitchen Sink: Who knew that this amazing dish cleaning mechanism was hidden under all that filth?
Trashed House: I am absolutely dumbfounded as to how this man could find anything in this mess!
Starting To Clean: Putting the trash IN THE BAGS… That’s a good start!
Bathroom: With all of that stuff in the sink, tell me this… Do you think that he actually washes his hands after he uses the restroom? Gross!
There Is HOPE!: Sometimes it’s the simplest of things that motivates someone to turn their life around, even if it’s just for a night…
Bathroom In Progress: Hose it down and squeegee it off! Whatever it takes!
Kitchen Hallway Progress: It’s amazing how nice it is to be able to get from point A to B without hurdling masses of trash, clothing and other random items.
Kitchen and Dining Area Cleaned Up: This guy’s pad is finally looking like something intended to be inhabited by humans! Look at him go!
Finally Clean… Mostly: Everything looks pretty good now. Good luck with your date!
