A Place To Keep Your Stuff

YotelI was reading about Yotels the other day. These are wonderful little 'cabins' available at Gatwick and Heathrow (London) and Schiphol (Amsterdam) airports. Great for a short stay-over. They're quite reasonable, too - a minimum of four hours costs only 40 for a premium cabin and from 25 for a standard cabin. The prices per hour thereafter are from as little as 6.00 per hour in a standard cabin.

They reminded me of my days living in bachelor apartments, and how I found that, really, people need little else to live than a place to do basic work, eat, bathe, and crash. Why we have become a society of buying big houses or large apartments or condos is something that I'm increasingly curious about. Much of it has to do with our propensity of collecting stuff. I recall George Carlin's great monologue:

"That's all you need in life, a little place for your stuff. That's all your house is: a place to keep your stuff. If you didn't have so much stuff, you wouldn't need a house."

So true.
