Stairs still nation’s favourite place to put things

A NATIONWIDE survey has found that Britons still love to have stuff piled up on the side of their stairs. 

Although there is no general consensus on whether the items on the stairs should be books, exercise equipment, toys or important documents, the UK has agreed that the stairs are definitely the best place to store them.

Bill McKay of Kirkcaldy said: “Only temporarily, of course. I’ll be moving all that stuff as soon as I know where it should go.

“But stairs are essentially shelves you can walk on and perfect for creating a kind of object purgatory, for the homeless things of the household to spend eternity.

“Are these things on their way up or down? I don’t even know any more. In a way, it’s kind of a metaphor for life, because it’s all shit I can’t be arsed to deal with.”

Serial stair-piler Eleanor Shaw said: “Since I had kids the stairs have become a crazy obstacle course of toys, which is fun for guests.

“I feel for people in bungalows who have to get by without stairs. It’s no life.”
