Dave’s Diary: Your Status Is In Hot Water!
Household luxuries and the status they confer how do we love thee? Let me count the ways. No wait, I’ll have the maid count the ways….recliner, man cave, master grill….no my friend..according to a new study, most people believe that owning a Jacuzzi means you’ve made it.
An article in the Daily Mail reveals that the status symbol of the 70’s, the hot tub, still has juice today. The hot tub topped a list of ultimate status symbols for both men and women, with 69 per cent citing it as proof someone had made it – closely followed by a walk in closet.

Over time items like microwaves topped the list, but now it’s hot tubs, closets and entertainment system gadgets. Now go rent Hot Tub Time Machine!
