"Why Do You Have a Fridge In Your Room?"

In response to the last part of my AMA answers Fang asked me why I'd even need a fridge in my bedroom/hallway. Rather than just answer him in his post I thought I'd turn the story into a post. I can't promise it will be long or entertaining but it will be a post at least. So that's always something.

A few years ago my nieces would always come here every weekend. There were three of them but two got older and one moved away, so I guess they just stopped coming down. But when they were around they would always try and eat my food. Especially my fruit. This was also a time when I was contributing to the grocery bill much like I am again these days. So I really saw the fruit as being mine.

After having had enough of the little shits angels eating my food I asked my dad if he could pick me up a mini fridge. I intended for him to buy the kind of small fridge that you keep cans and stuff in. It would be something nice and small that I could keep a select few items in to keep it safe from prying hands.
This is what I had in mind; like a minibar
One day my dad comes home from work and tells me that he got me a minifridge. I don't even remember where he found it. I think he picked it up from the nearby dump. All I know for sure is that it's not a mini fridge. He went and found me a small fridge. It's basically a fridge without a freezer. I thought "fuck it, I'll keep it" and put it in my bedroom. My food and drinks were safe and all was well in the land. Until I needed the room. That's when I moved it out in to the hallway. I didn't want to just throw it away, which is why it's still there. Besides it still works perfectly. These days I still keep fruit and drink in there. It makes things much more convenient for me and means I don't have to go downstairs to get a nice cold drink.

Which is great because I'm lazy.

So that's the story of how I had a fridge in my bedroom. I asked my dad for a mini fridge and he came home with a full sized fridge. I considered buying a hot plate to just completely live out of my room but never went through with it.


  1. "Which is great because I'm lazy." Let me guess, that's secretly a bigger factor in the story than your nieces? You could've just taught them to not eat all your stuff without permission. I mean, I'm assuming they would be at least somewhat receptive to reason and discipline.

  2. Gawd no, don't ask your dad to pick you up a hot plate -- he'll come home with a full sized stove and oven!

  3. That's actually pretty awesome, especially that it's a small fridge. I may be jealous, and that may be because I'm on the 3rd floor, the fridge is on the 1st floor, and in addition to the 2 flights of stairs I also have to hop a small baby gate (for the dogs) just to get there.

  4. I like the idea of having a mini fridge, yet for some reason I never bothered with one, maybe it's because I'm not much of a soft drink drinker anymore. It was decent of your dad to think of you and get hold of a fridge, even if he did the wrong thing by getting you a full sized one!

  5. When my daughter shared a house she had a small fridge in her room she also had a key lock on her door much to the annoyance of those she was sharing with

  6. Rather sure my parents would automatically kill me if i requested a mini-fridge. Could be to do with the fact we have a massive black on downstairs.

  7. Everyone needs a second fridge. ....altho in our family we've only ever needed it for the alcohol.

  8. I am in need of a new fridge! Could your dad help me out? 😊
