I just had to walk away from the living room. Mom is watching HGTV’s Million Dollar Rooms and it just pisses me off. Can you even imagine spending $1 million or more on a single room? Not a whole house, but just one – single – room!!
Don’t get the wrong idea, I’m not jealous of their money. I wish everyone on earth could be as successful as they want to be. However, I look at these rooms, and at the houses overall, and I just can’t help thinking how insanely wasteful it is. Sure, people got work and sales were made, but seriously, who needs that kind of lavishness?
I don’t think anyone needs that kind of extravagance. It’s just decadent and self-serving. It makes me sick to think of what could have been done with that much money instead of wasting it like that. And yes, to me that is a total waste. I mean, the first guy on the episode spent over $7 million on a pool area. Do you have any concept of how long I could live on that much money?? I could dump $1 million into a killer house and live the rest of my life off the rest. It’s just stupid.
Not to mention the fact that instead of spending money on a room you could travel, experience food, theater, art, history, and so much more. You could but things to enrich your life in so many ways. I get that these people enjoy the rooms and all, but there’s so much more to life than stuff! And if you really want to get down to it, if they could be a little more reasonable, a little more sensible, think of all the good they could have done for the world with that money.
Think about how many people could be fed and clothed for $1 million. Think about how much AIDS or cancer research that would pay for. Think about how many animals could be saved or causes could be funded. If I were a mega-millionaire, I’d never spend it on such stupidity. So, I can’t sit and watch these kinds of shows. It just sickens me to think how selfish and stupid these people are. Shit, one woman had a closet that cost over $1 million, not counting the designer clothes and jewelry inside it!
I tell ya, if there’s anyone out there looking to blow a few million, throw it my way. I could live like a queen, help those in need and fund college for the kids in my family and still have money left in the bank. If you’re rich and feeling philanthropic, I’ve worked long and hard and would love the gift. If you’re rich and greedy, well… Maybe you could think about the rest of the world for once and try donating to a good cause instead of having your fucking toilet covered in diamonds.
