Agree, and I've also burned sage in a new place. Ideally I'd go there the day before a move-in armed with cleaning products.
And my friend's mother told her before she married that the key to a functional marriage was separate bathrooms. I remember when my other friend's parents retired and downsized, the one caveat the mother had when they looked for a condo in the city was that she have her own bathroom because she was sick of sharing with her husband. They'd been married like 40 years so she clearly LIKES the guy, she just wants to do her ablutions away from him. I though Amber overreacted. It's not that deep.
I sympathize with Amber about her abandonment issues - I can only imagine what it would be like to have your mother abandon you. But I would go completely insane with a man who wanted to be up under me all the time, so I find her clinginess unappealing. I remember I had a college friend and he and I and a bunch of other people were hanging out, including his girlfriend, who was very clingy. He remembered that he had to drop off a form and said he'd be right back and she IMMEDIATELY got up and said she'd go with him. This was a ten-minute errand, tops. She had severe abandonment issues (she and her sister were literally abandoned at birth and adopted) so he tried to be patient, but he ultimately broke up with her over her clinginess.
The nepotism wouldn't bother me if Elizabeth and her father had healthy boundaries in the rest of their lives. Lots of people work in family businesses. But Elizabeth and her father CLEARLY have no boundaries anywhere, and Jamie is right to be concerned about it, and I would be really surprised if it hasn't come up in her relationships before. If her father is comfortable saying "Let's hope [your intended] doesn't have a small penis," that means she talks to him about her sex life, which I think is completely inappropriate. And Jamie saw how Dad freaked out when he mentioned lying down with her. That's fucked up, and it would give me tremendous pause.
I'd be mad as hell if I were Greg. His house is nicer than those apartments!
I might, yeah. Not a movie, but at work. I used to work in an exurb (which I hated, I'm a city person) and the company had a relationship with one of the garages nearby for routine maintenance - you could have your oil changed, etc. while you were at work and they'd pick up and drop off your car. And a quick Google search for "mobile car detailing" turns up lots of businesses, so it's an idea with something behind it. I don't know what Matt needs to get this going, and I have no idea if he has the acumen behind it, but I don't think it's an idea without merit.
I could see this being particularly popular in LA, where people are a) into their cars and b) busy. I have no idea what car culture is like in Charlotte though.
