Throughout the year I come across things that delight and (more often) annoy me. It’s the time of year to share so you know you’re not alone.
Peeve: White Supremacy
Pictured above is the “white” section for Valspar paints at Lowe’s snapped a week ago. Really? Does the (first) world need 72 shades of white? Think about that. If I repainted the same room every year of my life, given the current life expectancy of a U.S. male of 76.1 years, I’d only need to repeat a shade four times.
Praise: Fighting white supremacy
Every washer and dryer I’ve ever owned has been white. This time around I chose a different path. While LG had dropped the red and blue options (I’d have so done red), there was still grey. I bought LG because they were very highly rated on reliability by Consumer Reports in August. Who knows? My next car might not be white (although not buying another car seems more likely).
