I haven't folded laundry in my entire life. I started doing my own laundry when I was 8. I'm 21 now. In all of those 13 years, the truth of the matter is that I have always taken the **** from the dryer or clothes line, and heaved it in a basket.

three laundry baskets of unfolded, washed, laundry staked on top of each other right next to my bed. Me busy?


eh, I usually fold it, but been too much going on the past two weeks... Actually, i'm pretty anal about it, and its kinda driving me slightly insane knowing i have sooo much sitting there all wrinkled, creased and unorganized. Only answer is the booze.

2 foot high pile of folded clothes mixed with dirty clothes on the floor, nothing hanging up for me. I have no idea what's clean anymore. It's about 3 feet high.

In my house, there is an inside joke amongst everyone that "Doing the laundry" means...uhhhh...well, I think you can figure it out.

*knocks on the bedroom door* "Hey, what are you doing?"

"Uhhh...I'm doing the laundry!"

"Oh, ok...need any help?"



ok, that is disgusting...

I just got done hanging up and folding my stuff (and rolling tomorrow's clothes before stuffing them in my bag for the daily commute-and-grind) before reading this. So when you wrote it, I was likely folding laundry. 4 freaking loads worth.

I can understand why a person would have a use for a folding bike; but why fold your laundry? You just have to unfold it when you wear it.

OK, I'll play. Why get on a bike when you're just going to get off it?

my wife does not let me do laundry, for the exact reason you state. I do not fold and her clothes get wrinkled and then it just goes down hill from there. We came up with a system. I do dishes, she does laundry. It is much harder to wrinkle plates. They usually crack just as they are starting to show signs of wrinkling.

lol, just one of those weird things in life I guess...It is kind of funny that we even get out of bed in the morning. I guess because deep down inside no matter how lazy a person is, they still want to get something done.

Oddly, I was just thinking how nice it would be to fold some laundry. (insert mysterious music here) Could this be serendipity?

Fold laundry? Then I would not have a bedroom full of pant and shirt shaped throw rugs.

So this guy walks into the bedroom to find his wife posed seductively on the bed.

She gives him her best come hither look and says "Make me feel like a woman."

The man smiles and slowly unbuttons his shirt, letting it slide from his shoulders onto the floor.

Next, he playfully undoes his trousers and lets them drop to the floor.

He climbs onto the bed, points at his clothes on the floor and says "Fold those"!
