I agree that they sent their tape in and obviously knew what a horrible state their house was in---and to that end, I understand what you are saying. But "mad that these people exist"? That seems a little harsh. Their filthy home has no impact on your daily life.Originally Posted by MsDiva2007;3115662;
I think this couple was so far in denial that they bought their own excuses for why their house looked the way it did. (ie his back injury, her problems with infertility) The fact that they honestly thought they were ready for a baby (or perhaps that a baby would fix all of their problems) shows how far removed they were from reality.
I think a situation like this happens little by little, over time, which adds to the depression and it just becomes a vicious circle. I feel secure in sayng that nobody sets out to live like they did.
