“I don’t even need it,” said Gertrude Stein, 47, Kangaroo Flat.
Apparently Miss Stein has held a gym membership for eight years and not touched the front door once.
“I don’t even use the hand-break on my car,” said Miss Stein.
In a growing class of people who own things they never use, Miss Stein is a beacon for the cause of waste want.
“I bought this house and land package. I don’t go into the garden. It just can just overgrow and get chest high grass for all I care,” said Miss Stein.
Her neighbours in Kangaroo Flat are not happy.
Mr George Parsons said, “We had a perfectly respectable area of land blocks being sub-divided and she comes along, buys land, and doesn’t sub-divide. It just sits there. Drives me bonkers. Instead of a cramped two bedroom home there’s grass and a wattle tree. It’s crap.”
It’s not just gym memberships and ugly home opportunities that Miss Stein is not making full use of.
“I have a bread maker in the cupboard, and own a bicycle that looks like it was once a go-kart,” said Miss Stein.
But her biggest win has been shopping at Aldi.
“Oh the pointless crap I pick up there. Work boots, a book on golf, travel luggage, Oh it’s paradise.”
But shopping at Aldi is not the only pointless thing she’s done.
“I’ve also had three kids,” said Miss Stein.
