There are probably two questions that are in everyone’s minds and the one of them is what it is like to live in the White House. The second one must be what it is to like to live in the Windsor Castle. Going back to the first one, many sub-questions pop up about the daily activities of the First family of the U.S, the people who work for them and the operation of the House. Aside from everything that Veep has showed us and people have told the media, there are other unknown pieces of information, many of them pretty scary and disgusting.
1. The West Wing is filled with cockroaches and mice
In 2017, the White House made a request for pest control, since there were mice getting into the Situation room and White House Navy mess food service area. Not only that, but insiders have said that cockroaches also make their appearance in these same rooms.
2. The First family has to pay for their own food
The members of the First family have to pay for their own food, toothpaste, dry cleaning and any other personal need. The bill is sent to them at the end of every month. Fortunately for them, the food that is being served at the White House state functions is paid by taxpayers.
3. The Wi-Fi connectivity is of very poor quality
It is understandable that such a huge place has issues with wi-fi connectivity. Barack Obama himself said that there are a few ‘dead spots’ around the White House.
4. There is a dentist’s office in the basement
The basement of the White House isn’t a regular basement. It features a dentist’s office, a flower shop, a carpenter’s shop and an engineer’s shop.
