I judge clutter and the cleanliness of the bathroom. That thing should be spotless when guests come over!! The worst is pet hair though. Nothing worse than being covered in fur.

I notice that ring of grime around the bathroom faucet, as well as toilet rings.  I also notice dust bunnies on top of door frames, tooth paste drops on mirrors, etc. Also if for some reason I am walking barefoot and step on crumbs i squirm.

@StephieBee:  Us, too! I went a bit crazy when we got prints of our e-pics. I’ll go even crazier with the wedding pictures, I’m sure.

@MrsPanda99:  i thought no one had the right to judge you, about anything, ever! and if they did, they best not tag you.

@MrsPanda99:  I notice the smell and maybe an interesting knick knack or family pictures. I like to look at other people’s’ family pictures if they are displayed. Other than that I don’t look for anything in particular. I certainly wouldn’t snoop through other people’s’ stuff.

Honestly? I’m going to step away from dirtiness-chat because the first thing I think when I go to someone’s house is, “Would this house be a contender in my house hunt?” When we were shopping for a house, I had a LOT of disqualifiers. No 2-car garage? Next. Tiny back yard? Next. Galley kitchen? Nuh-uh. Master bath with only one sink or no separate tub and shower? Sorry.

I try to remember to compliment everyone’s house the first time I visit, but if it passes my mental checklist I try to really sell my compliment. “You know, we just finished our house hunt. I was so picky, but I totally would have pursued one like this. It’s really lovely.”

I can’t fault people for dirty houses because lately I’ve been slow on cleaning (UGH HOLIDAY SEASON). But I try to at least take care of the clutter. My parents are the opposite – they always dirt-cleaned before clutter-cleaning. I just figure picking up clutter is more apparent so you get more bang for your buck, so to speak.

I don’t snoop through things.  I would notice the smell (if it was bad or really good!) and I would notice general cleanliness.  I would also notice if it was covered in dog or animal hair!  That’s a big pet peeve of mine. 

I’d probably notice if I thought it looked really nice (layout ,design, or decoration) but I wouldn’t care or judge if I didn’t like it.  Unless you had something truly bizarre I suppose…haha.

@MrsPanda99:  Now, that I’m thinking about it, I judge a lot!

I will judge someone for having large cars, because I am very pro-environment. I will judge someone for not having any animals, because in all honesty, I think that’s kind of weird! It seems very detached (unless you have kids)

I judge someone for having cheap, college-style furniture in a home, and if they’re serving me food, I definitely judge if they have a lot of junk food, or low-quality food, like margarine instead of butter.

I will notice if the house smells particularly bad, and if their dining room table is never used (some people only eat in front of their couch)


That’s it!

@MrsPanda99:  My thing that I notice are dishes and how clean your kitchen – are the clean dishes really clean? I had some friends with disgustingly dirty kitchens, and I would be grossed out to eat or drink anything there. I would bring my own to-go coffee from the shop, b/c “Oh! It just happened to be on the way!” This peeve however makes me ensure that my kitchen and dishes are spotless!

For me, it’s the floors. If you have linoleum/tile/marble/hardwood floors and they’re sticky… I judge BIG TIME. Same goes for carpets and rugs! If there’s little specs of mystery material/food/dirt/leaves/etc on it, I’m judging.

Also animals that seem like they prefer to use the floor instead of their weewee pads or the back yard. Not mad at the puppy, but the puppy parent!

Smell, first and foremost.  If it’s clean, I wonder where the books are.

@peachacid:  I was just going to mention books! I always notice if people have books, and what kinds of books they have. I think you can tell more about a person from their bookshelf than anything else! I feel like anyone who walks into my living room immediately gets to know me based on the two huge bookshelves flanking the opening to our hallway.

I also notice smell. I think it’s fascinating that everyone’s house smells diferent and I always wonder what mine smells like! Probably hazelnut and the spray I use to clean my kitchen (but hey, it’s scented with febreeze so it can’t be that bad!)
