i love reading about the plight of rich people. here's one from the nytimes:
Cathy McCarthy, a Manhattanite who has a second home in Shelter Island, N.Y., said her washing machine runs full time in the summer. "I won't miss the laundry after Labor Day," Ms. McCarthy said. "My kids are constantly changing their clothes out here. There's tennis clothes and riding clothes and swimsuits. And that doesn't even count the towels - endless, endless beach towels. I have dozens of towels that don't belong to me, and it doesn't even matter because all my neighbors have mine. You can't imagine how much laundry there is. I'm just not used to it - my kids wear uniforms during the school year."
what a trip. riding clothes? tennis clothes? and you have to wash them all by YOURSELF?
when my family went to our camp in vermont during the summer we didn't even have a shower inside. we had to take baths in lake champlain with ivory soap because it freakin' floats!
