Having worked at Subway to put myself through school. And having been held up three times - you kind of get a feel for what customers are going to be trouble.
Not having seen the footage though - I can probably guess it is just regular "ignoring the customer".

Are we back to "designers being arses" again? It doesn't look like there's an shortage of space that would make you choose a form of staircase that is less accessible than one that's easier to use.

I don't see anything complicated. Right foot, left foot, repeat. They might be a problem for small children (and maybe the elderly) who often take steps one at a time with both feet, but most adults skip every other step with each opposite respective foot. I guess if you're used to starting stairs on the left foot (I wonder if handedness generally dictates that) it might cause an issue.
The might look difficult, but they actually have treads exactly where your feet need and only what you use during a standard right-foot-initiated climb.
Plus, great for thwarting unknowing intruders who enter your home. :P

My rock band got more use out of my parents' station wagon than most any other vehicle. Not exactly the babe magnet vehicle that I was hoping for, though.

This really sums up most "designers". I wonder how many toilets he's cleaned, and how many loo rolls he's changed. And how many dribbly widdlers he's cleaned up after.

I laughed. My "baby girl" is 40 and when I did something like that to her over 20 years ago, she responded by going out and doing quite well. Tough love is what they call it.

Yeah - can't remember where I saw that, but I nearly wet myself laughing. Trouble is, when I tell our son to move out he asks for a pay rise. Perhaps when I retire and he runs the show he'll shove off? Or more likely when he finds a partner.

Old joke down here in SW FL is that "the South" ends around Gainesville FL. The map is close on that, but there probably is also a big difference between SE FL and SW FL. Take a look at where I-75 goes and it might give you a clue.

About 8 years ago I saw an 80's station wagon driving on I-5 in with Washington State plates that said GRZWLD. I laughed out loud when I saw that. Wish I could have taken a pic but I was driving.

This is a great list. I had no idea it was originally shot in color. Also I loved Fred Gwynne and it's heartwarming to know he was a children's artist. The most surprising fact is that the two shows were created independently since it's been a hotly debated topic which was a rip-off. Of course, the Addams Family comic strip predated the show, so I guess it wins by default.

I remember my Dad telling me this years ago. Now at 76, I am experiencing this. Remember when you were a kid how summer vacation seemed like an eternity?

It was a question that deeply divided my first and second grades classes: Addams Family or Munsters? It was even more important than Beatles vs Rolling Stones and Batman vs. Superman, because we all watched them every week.
