Home is where the toilet overflows.

The house my family lives in was built in the 1950s, and while I find some of its fifty-year-old quirks kind of, well, quirky, at times, they can be annoying. Like the part where the fuse blows if somebody accidentally runs the toaster oven the same time as the microwave, or tries to vacuum downstairs while somebody is making coffee.

Or how, living in the basement, I'm privy to having the walls "sweat" when there's a particular amount of moisture outside, making it impossible to keep my posters sticky-tacked. Does this happen to anyone else? What other "quirks" does your living situation (houses, mobile homes, apartment buildings - though I mostly mean the building itself, not neighbors, which I'm sure is a community itself! - etc.) have?

P.S.: This is my first post here, but I've been lurking for a while. Hola!
