I … can’t … take it any longer!!!!!!!! Those of you in the sloggysphere have no idea this has been going on, of course, so, here’s the story:
Jonah likes this term “townhomes.” I notice some of you in the comments naturally revert to “townhouses” when responding to him. This is perfectly understandable.
After all, the use of “home” is any real estate context is pure jargon meant to seduce you into thinking the given piece of property is warm, comfy, inviting—that no matter its price or hideousness you yourself may find yourself calling it “home” someday. This is brainwashing. “Home” should be strictly reserved for that place and only that place where you and your family or roommates place their sleepy heads at night. The correct term for a piece of property, especially one being bought or sold, is HOUSE. Not home. House.
Repeat after me, Dominic and Jonah: Townhouse, townhouse, townhouse!
And NEVER let me see the nasty, insinuating, fake, obnoxious word “townhome” on this blog again.
For the love of god.
