The Lifestyle of an Appliance Technician Named Stanley, and Video Games Today…

As a blog that discusses lifestyles at home and at the diner, it’s only relevant to discuss one very interesting lifestyle of a guy named Stanley who has a home and works for diners fixing commercial dishwashers. Stanley’s lifestyle is fascinating for what we’ve concluded to be three major reasons. Those reasons are:

  1. Stanley, although he fixes commercial dishwashers for a living, ironically prefers to wash dishes by hand at home.
  2. While Stanley preaches that everyone should do what they love, he works 12 hour shifts 7 days a week!
  3. All of Stanley’s spare time is spent–can you guess it?–eating, showering and sleeping…

Why is Stanley the Dishwasher Repair Man’s Lifestyle Interesting Enough to Blog About Today?

We believe that Stanley’s lifestyle symbolizes what children who play video games all day fear most. We love the irony in this because Stanley loves his life and is smiling more than aught. Let us expound further.

Today, children play way too many video games and they dread what the future holds. The truth is, kids loathe the reality of adult life because they believe working a job like Stanley’s would not only take away time from video games but would be miserable. Why work so much, they might ask. Honestly, if these kids decided to do something productive sooner than later then they could end up creating the job of their dreams for themselves like Elon Musk did. Maybe we don’t fully understand why lazy children fear having a life like Stanley’s. Maybe it’s not a big deal for in the future lifestyle’s like Stanley’s might not exist anymore as robots take over the appliance repair industry.

At the end of the day, we still think the symbolism and irony that Stanley’s lifestyle brings is worth talking about because it allows us to ask questions about the future jobs for our children. It also pulls a blanket of contrast over the lifestyles of people today compared to 50 years ago, because when Stanley was a kid he never would have been allowed to play video games all day. He was forced by his parents to find a job at the age of fourteen-years-old and so this story brings forth a lot of interesting thoughts.

We hope you enjoyed thinking about this as much as we did. Someone’s lifestyle can say a lot behind the scenes, and that’s why we’re here to talk about them. Enjoy your new year!
