So I'm Wasting Time on the Internets...
...and I come across an article claiming to explain how to keep your home clean. (Actual title: "Is your home a mess? There's an app for that!")
I click on it, since there between writing novels, reading novels, taking the dog to the dog park, and catching up on the new season of Elementary, keeping the house clean is waaaay down on my list.
Guess what the app does?
It lets you hire people to clean your house.
This is what I mean by people in the top 5% being radically out of touch with those of us in the middle and working classes.
If I had the money to hire someone to clean my house, I wouldn't need a damn "app for that." I could throw a stone out my front door and hit fifteen or twenty people eager to clean my house, mow my lawn, deal with my scraggly oak trees, do my laundry, and any other job I could pay them ten dollars an hour to do.
App for that my ass.
