“50% of home ownership is hearing noises and hoping you have ghosts because you can’t afford…”

“So apparently 50% of homeowning is hearing strange noises and hoping they are made by ghosts because I can’t afford to fix them” was posted on Twitter by Beth Boyle Machlan on December 18, 2020.  There have been some minor variations, such as “home ownership” for “homeowning.”

Part of home ownership is hearing a noise and hoping it’s a ghost because you can’t afford to fix the problem. #ghost #paranormal

So apparently 50% of home ownership is hearing strange noises and hoping it’s ghosts because it cost too much to get whatever it was fixed.

Replying to @DGerowPR and @SpookedPod
I read someone on here say something like: Home ownership is a series of hoping the noises you hear the house make are actually ghosts because you can’t afford to fix whatever it really is.
