The person who is a landlord doesn't care about the longterm cost because they usually put somewhere in the rental agreement that the renter will leave the place as clean as it was when they move in or the security deposit will be used to pay for any cleaning that needs to be done. People who build houses will put in carpenting to cut corners and save money. They don't care if you have it torn up later and replaced or have to spend money to clean it. They offer Scotchguard (very expensively too) to protect your carpet. They make their money and they are gone.

Or it's a cheap way to make a house look better in a short time frame. Most people won't think much if the carpet is pretty and fresh because they don't thing longterm care. I bought my house and it was fully carpeted. It was less than a year old and the people who were going to move in ended up defaulting on the loan but had already picked out the flooring. So we have carpet - for now.

I will never understand why some parents are so controlling when it comes to the most trivial of things.

Default oh the idiocy....

Something I'm DYING to say on the more *ahem* public sections...

NEWBIES.
Use the freaking SEARCH BAR
It's there for a reason.
Stop clogging up the forums with the same threads asking us, "What's my hair type????"
God gave you a wonderful brain. Use it. Use the search bar.
I try not to get snippy, but my inner b**ch begins to emerge when I see these types of posts.

Want to know why my post count is low? Because I do RESEARCH BEFORE posting a topic. There are many brilliant ladies on NC who have answered your question. A THOUSAND times.

I am obsessed with Pride and Prejudice (Keira Knightly as Elizabeth Bennet). I need to just go ahead and buy it already. I love Donald Sutherland in this movie.

Oh, now it's just an excuse for a day spent drinking to excess and wearing Kelly green. I don't think many people know much about the snakes.

St. Patrick's Day always makes me think of the snake whacking episode of The Simpsons.

Oh it is the biggest mix-up that you have ever seen
Me father he was orange and me mother, she was green!


it's an Irish song about "mixed marriage" between a Protestant (the Oranges) and a Catholic (the Greens).
