The messiest house in Canberra?

By johnboy 3 September 2008 56

Over on YouTube one “amfbelco” has posted a Canberra tagged video of a house that almost defies belief.

Here’s the accompanying text:

    “What you’re about to see may shock you, you might think you have a messy house, but I can assure you; you are seriously mistaken.

    This house is just around the corner, it’s clean on the outside and a cleaner’s hell on inside. But worst of all there is a cat involved.”

Anyone have any ideas where this temple to slovenliness could be? I know it’s made me feel better about my housekeeping.

And hats-off to that collection of goon-bags!

What’s Your opinion?

The song in the video attached reminds me of South Park http://www.southparkstudios.com/clips/149744/high-f-bomb

Unconditional love regarding family and friends visiting Dilandach….on topic in relation to the rubbish or papers; I cannot see food garbage items that require disposing and who is to say that this room is not a store room where the residents are placing old electronical items and papers ready for a tip drop. Many people wait until they have a spare room or garage full prior to loading up the trailers and dumping.

No food items?

Perhaps this still from the video will change your opinion: http://i44.tinypic.com/jg1jj4.jpg

What’s sad? Its hilarious!
The world needs freaks to stink up the place to make me laugh.
My bet is its public housing, final inspection and the offenders have since moved on and are coming to a neighbourhood near YOU.

What’s sad is that the person involved probably has serious mental health issues relating to hoarding/OCD and needs help and assistance rather than being laughed at and called a freak. Therehas to be something wrong in your life/mental state to allow your house to become like that.

On many occasions I visit Canberra homes in my line of work and interestingly the cleanest, clearest most sterile homes are often the coldest, darkest, most negative environments for kids being raised (kids absolutely miserable as guests living in their own homes) fearful dropping a crumb as they eat their meal with a dictatorial over controlling parent(s).

Some of these parents are fearful to have one item ‘out of place’.

Uni students: do you have time to conduct a Canberra social study involving families who have children living at home with excess clutter, some clutter and zilch clutter in their homes?

Who feels the most loved and secure in their home lives?

Anecdotal evidence at best. There is no evidence for any correlation between the state of a house and the level of ‘love’ a parent gives their kids. Living in a clean and clear house does not equal kids being treated as guests in their homes just as living in a filthy rat infested hell hole equates to kids that are lovingly cared for.

Two Orbs in the Lounge Room – the owner has company other than his/her own rubbish (the kind variety I hope)!

Just had time to view the video – apologies – I had only quickly viewed the photo above and not viewed the whole video – yes the residents require assistance from a health and OH&S point of view; however I stand by all of the other comments made (for the record).

Unconditional love regarding family and friends visiting Dilandach….on topic in relation to the rubbish or papers; I cannot see food garbage items that require disposing and who is to say that this room is not a store room where the residents are placing old electronical items and papers ready for a tip drop.

If there were food cartons and food items in view sure it would be a different issue whereby the residents do need assistance regarding a condition.

However lets face it, EVERYONE has some type of condition that requires assistance from someone at some time during their lives including those who judge.

For the record, I know where this house is and nobody has mentioned the suburb in any post. And no, the occupier wasn’t a renter, nor is this a government house or flat. The owner is person with a mentall illness who is related to me who suffered psychological trauma by having neighbours break in to the house illegally and heroically post this video online.

So has it been cleaned up yet?

The neighbours were probably tired of the stench. If he is related to you, then its quite sad that you let it get to the point it got to in the video. I and I’m sure a lot of people certainly wouldn’t stand by and let a relative fester in an environment such as that. Especially with an underlying mental illness condition.

I guess its just easier to get annoyed with people who bring attention to the neglect some show to their relatives in need.

I sincerely hope the guy got the help he required.

Trauma you might be adding to by resurrecting a four year old post?

Surely the owner or occupier took these pics and put the clip on YouTube? Why would they have allowed anyone else in to take them, unless for a perverse desire to air their dirty linen, so to speak…

As for the “snipe from the edges” bit, that’s just so god-damned funny I now have to find a handy wipe to get the tandoori chicken and pesto off my screen.

Thank you for your contributions this afternoon Overheard. Now I have had to find a handy wipe to wipe the orange I’ve been eating of my screen. Haha. You’ve made my day!

Back to your corners please gentlemen and confine yourselves to the issues if you would please.

I’m still not sure where your unwarranted attack is coming from, but I indeed sincerely apologise if I have offended you in a past life.

At the moment it appears the only person around here scrambling about is you.
