i haven't washed my car in five or six months, the paint is peeling off all over (it is an integra) and it's missing a hubcap.

i haven't washed my car in a year. it's covered with grime and bird shit and the hood has some unknown substances on it that could be spilled soda or grease of some kind. the interior of my car is covered with receipts, random pieces of paper, old paycheck stubs, record store bags, and empty bottles of water. the trunk has cleaning supplies, some of which have spilled out onto the carpet, leaving garish blue stains. the gas tank door won't stay closed and every time my car hits a substantial bump--a fair common occurrence on los angeles streets--it pops open, leading to lots of other drivers pointing it out to me. i don't bother to pull over because i know it'll happen again.

laundry covers my bedroom floor. i don't know if it's clean or dirty, it's probably both, so i'll just rewash it all again.

not washing your car is apparently a crime against nature when your neighbors have a bmw SUV and a mercedes coupe in their driveway

seriously when i roll up and park they look at me like i shit on their doorstep

the art ensemble of chicago house (vahid), Saturday, 23 September 2006 01:04 (thirteen years ago) link

you could probably pay their kids $5 to wash it for you and then when they get older maybe they'll give you a job washing theirs

dirt bag lifestyle:
-no washing pants
-one hoodie, every day, all winter/fall
-floor of room littered with weed ash, stems, dirty socks, superhero comics

YES

in my case it is hoodie + army jacket

no weed/ash/stems/paraphenalia but mad dirty underwears and stacks of ungraded papers + curriculum revisions up to the ceiling ... every time i look for a worksheet a fucking army of silverfish comes crawling out ...

once i opened a drawer in the kitchen that i hadn't opened for months, and there was a bag of potatoes in there, and they were liquid, and a cloud of flying insects from another fucking planet flew out of there. also in that kitchen, the stovetop was covered in a BLANKET of dead gnats. i mean a blanket. not 10 gnats, not 50 gnats. i don't know why i am saying this like i should be boasting. it is horrifying.

Not washed car, uh, ever. Not washing your jeans for a year is fairly regular behavior amongst raw denim snobs, Vahid!

ALLAH FROG (Mingus Dew), Saturday, 23 September 2006 01:44 (thirteen years ago) link

after living with a really dirty person once (same pile of laundry was in the same place when i moved in and out (and when i went back to visit 3 months after moving out), dog hair tumbleweeds all over the place, 3 cats confined to basement covered it with shit and piss which was never cleaned, other half of basement suffered from sump pump floods which were never cleaned up after, etc.) i can't really let my place get too dirty. i'm not a clean freak, but i'm getting to the stage where i even notice when i should be dusting, mopping the bedroom floor, etc, though sometimes i don't see the point because as soon as i sweep the floor, it's dusty again.

when i had a car, though, i never washed it because 7-8 months of the year, it was covered in snow and salt so there was no point. in the summer, i let the occasional rain shower take care of it.

sometimes i leave food in the fridge for months at a time and find it later and get really grossed out. i've lost a lot of dishes that way.

i used to sweep kitchen floor a ton but since i don't cook much these days, it's not as immediately necessary (or maybe it is and i really am a dirtbag!). the floor that bothers me most is the bedroom, though. hardwood + i have a few rugs, but the fuzz from jon's rug travels in as well as random dust and i feel like it's ALWAYS in need of a sweeping. i'm not amish so i don't really like to clean that frequently. maybe i should get one really large rug so i don't notice as much?

winter of '00 i was living in a 250 sq ft space that was mostly bathroom and kitchen, while dating a girl who had a nebulous 'adult entertainment' job at a gentleman's club (later leading into adult films shortly after we broke it off) that amounted to her watching guys jerk off in front of her in plush rooms. she'd come over a couple nights a week and we'd both eat mcdonald's and watch shitty movies. i didn't wash my clothes because there was no laundry on the premises and no laundromat within walking distance and my previous car was fucked up and i didn't like to drive it. my neighbor, i found out later, thought i was a white supremacist because i never left my apartment and i had a shaved head. the album i played the most those few months was probably wu-tang's '36 chambers' so i'm not sure how that played into the equation, maybe it was my sort-of gf rolling up in her shitty truck blasting david allen coe's more "underground recordings"?

i agree with that. i got these wool blend socks from costco i probably wear 3x or so. they never smell. i am a confirmed dirt bag though.

I've got a half-dozen of these, but I hadn't even considered wearing them twice before a wash, much less 4 or 5 times.

I tore the crotch of my corduroys when I was at work a few weeks ago, so I went to the bathroom with a roll of duct tape, turned my pants inside out, and taped them back together. luckily my shift ended an hour later and I don't think anybody noticed.

on another occasion I forgot to wear my belt to work, so I looped a ziptie between two adjacent belt loops to keep my pants from falling down. I cut off and replaced the ziptie every time I went to the bathroom.
