Matt Paxton on poop-fed fleas, dying under diapers

Three awesome quotes from Clutter Cleaner Matt Paxton, while cleaning the house that included a “mountain of diapers” that began to violently shake because of a 5.8 earthquake, in the “Mike; Bonnie” episode of Hoarders:

“I don’t want a flea landing on me that’s been in someone’s poop for the past five years.”

“When you’re sitting on three feet of poop on top of all that, it’s not the safest feeling in the world.”

“The last place I’m going to die is underneath all your diapers, going through the floor. That’s the worst place to die right there.”
