Inanimate Compliance

I have a fascination for inanimate objects. Show me a beautiful watch with its intricate mechanism on display and I shall sit transfixed for a long time admiring the craftsmanship in this creation. I like to touch one of my favourite suits relishing the sensation of the cloth. I will hold it up pleased with the way it hangs and then of course admire how I wear it in the mirror. A sculpture, a painting, a car or a piece of jewellery. They all invite my admiration. They are items of beauty and superiority and as such firmly belong in my world. Moreover, they do exactly what I want. I love my dishwasher. It always works. I press the buttons and it obeys my commands, quietly churning away as it removes the residue from the expensive crockery. The glassware comes out shining, without streaks or marks. Each and every time. Objects are reliable. They perform as I require them to perform. I love nothing more than an appliance. It complies, it obeys and it delivers. I love possessions.

I love to possess you and make you an inanimate object. That is how I see you. You are an appliance which I expect to do as I demand.You are but an extension of me, placed here to carry out my demands and whims. I like to attach brand names to my ex-girlfriends. Becky was Zanussi – she was good at science, thus she was the appliance of science. Sarah was Nike since I had to tell her to Just Do It.(she called me Burger King – have it your way, I quite liked her).Another was Energizer as she kept going and going and going (but that’s another tale). I like to think I am Tag Heuer (Success. It’s a Mind Game).I objectify everybody and assess how they can be a good appliance to me. Once that is done I have to acquire the appliance. I have possession of you and you must act as I dictate. All my other possessions do, so why should you be any different?



  1. Interesting post !
    my Narc did in fact have nicknames for his ex girlfriends . Interestingly the only one he had a derogatory nickname for is the one who is his current OW . Hmmmm , why would that be?
    I imagine he assigned me a nickname as well, wish I knew what it was /is !
    Your articles are making me think of things that I have not thought about in decades !
    Thank you !

    1. Ha Pati, good one! I felt like a Whirlpool myself. Zanussi is a funny one, HG. I think of Zanussis as cheap and unreliable. Bosch would be more like it.

      1. I do like Bosch,i have a dishwasher its pretty good . My Breville toaster is good too. You just press a button and your toast is perfection . Just the way Narcissists like. Lol

          1. SMH, exactly they work in a click of a button.
            I like the fact thats its digital. Just hope its doesnt break down because it will be devalued lol.

          2. Pati, Yes, I come here for the laughs and the serious discussions of art and literature. It satisfies both my low and high sides, though I am not a fan of scatological humor.

          3. I like the constant reminder of being appliances in the grand scheme. It helps remember to not go back.

          4. And I know you are overwhelmed. I envision cutting a thick rope that is frayed for a period of time before it breaks. You are doing this.

          5. Yes it does. I am so enjoying being my full asshole self rather than a puppet on a string or a toaster. I don’t care what anyone thinks of me.
