Did you ever hear that question as you were growing up? I did -- either from my father or grandmother. It came when I had left an outside door open and I knew to close that door.
Characters on TV shows are always coming in the front door and leaving it standing open. I saw it just last night, and I have seen it many times over the years. Why do they do that? It's so logical to close the door once you are inside. Are they afraid the fake wall will fall in case the closing is a little too hard?
Things aren't necessarily done on TV like we do them at home. How many times have you been in a group of 4 and eaten on only 3 sides of the table? Oops, I forgot. We don't have a camera on us at home. No reality TV here, thank goodness.
It doesn't matter what those characters do for a living. Their homes are usually spotless. Does a maid come in during the daytime and clean everything? I have yet to hear a detective say he or she can't go to the bar because all the clothes are dirty and the laundry must be done. Yet I don't see them stopping at the cleaners. When do they shop for groceries?
It's must really be true that TV and the movies are only make-believe.
