I MISS PETER WALSH

I am soooooooooooooo sick of ho-my-way-e or-ganizing-the-highway TV shows. OHMIGOD – clients who don’t make more than the most pitiful, halfhearted, mewling peep about letting things go. I WANT my clients to fight back sometimes, it means they’re thinking and feeling the process. You can see the surfaces. Clients who don’t actually do the work. A five minute walk-through. Rainbows????? I have clients who would be left nauseated by rainbows. Nothing out of sight, unless the organizers decide the stuff should be out of sight. Gleeful tragedy masks instead of poker faces. PUBLICLY dissing their clients?!?!?!?!?! Publicly discussing the client’s parking tickets???? SHRIEK. Gads I long for the good ‘ol days when the Organizer TV stars belonged to NAPO (National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals). And that was before I even knew there was a NAPO. BUT they find ways to honor memories. They unhesitatingly work with clients of all kinds. I acknowledge that I have no idea how extensive their conversations are behind-the-scenes. Heck no they didn’t invent zones. Heck no they didn’t invent containerizing. And blippity blippity blippity blip that every flipping container is EXPENSIVE. Heck no they didn’t invent sorting. Heck as heck no they didn’t invent labels. Yet again one size fits all. Gag me with a buzzword. OHMIGOD Form over Function.

Rant over. Made the mistake of binging a TV show I will not name.
