I mean, what is money for but for spending, right? So you go to school and you learn stuff - some relevant, some completely not, like algebra. Then you go to work. Let's face it, most of us hate our jobs or we've gone through several that completely sapped us of joy before we found something worthy of the shiny and magical word 'career'. So you work and you get money and you spend it on Things. Then you find a place to put these Things, which has to be a good place if you use those Things a lot, and a visible place if those Things are for show. Then after you've had those Things for a while, they'll need cleaning.
A week or so later (obviously depending on what the Thing in question is, it will be a lot sooner) it will need cleaning AGAIN. I dunno about you guys, but I'm fairly convinced that, apart from that brief pang that comes as a result of parting with hard-earned money, cleaning is the absolute worst part of Thing-ownership.
Did the people responsible for capitalism think of that?!?!
