Insider Info on the McMansion Life

The text on this photo gives us some inside information about what goes on inside a McMansion. “For my job, I spend most of my time in these fake nice, cheap plywood house neighborhoods. They’re all the same. The right garage door most likely has the husband’s F250 and the wife’s Jeep. And the smaller garage door always has a super nice old muscle car. That’s just how they’ve been programmed.” Someone came to the homeowner’s defense in the comments, saying that the owner could have motorcycles, or maybe a beer fridge in the garage. There may be slight variations, but it’s still pretty accurate.

These Cheapskates Live in a McMansion, But Gave a $0 Tip

This photo was originally posted on a Doordash driver subReddit by someone who delivered food to this house. They said that this person gave them a $0 tip. And they took a photo of the house just to emphasize that they must have a lot of money, but they are selfish when it comes to tipping minimum wage workers. Here in the United States, there is a big culture around tipping service workers, because they make such little money. And if you don’t tip, it’s considered rude. Someone took this photo and reposted it on the McMansion Hell subReddit. Maybe this person spent all their money building an ostentatious house to the point where they don’t have enough left over to give a tip to their Doordash driver.

The Fortress

Something that’s common among McMansions is that they decide to use two different types of siding for the exterior of the house. In this case, they have a lot of faux stone plaster to the front of the house. But on the sides, you can see that they have regular vinyl siding. The stone extends on the bottom of the house, but maybe they ran out of money before they could finish siding the whole house. It looks like they want to have a strong fortress type of vibe going on. But once you look at it from the side, it looks like a Podunk castle. You can tell that they wanted their house to look expensive, and maybe they accomplished it. But it still looks very strange.

Is This a House, or a Theater?

Last but not least is this strange, creepy house on the top of a mountain. At first glance, it’s hard to wrap your mind around. Is it someone’s private home, a business, or a theater? But when you look through the image gallery on Reddit, you will notice that this actually does have a living room and a kitchen space like a normal home. But the owner of the house decided to build an entire theater inside. Someone in the comments said that this was once owned by someone who was trying to start their own church. Basically, this is the former location of a cult. But now they are trying to sell this as a private house. Good luck with that. This place would need to be exorcised of its demons, first.
