Don't know how to fold fitted sheets. Neither of us care.  Yea.  I win :)

I'm outta sheet.

So you don't cotton to sheets.  Must be one of those rich elitist 'born onto the silk' babies.

I'm gonna have to call bull sheet.

Dang! No wonder she's your ex-wife.

What is wrong with women who have unrealistic expectations of their men  - or who allow men to have unrealistic expectations of them?

You know how I fold sheets? I carefully bring all of the corners together, then roll the whole mess in to a wad that will fit in the linen closet. Who cares?

Well, I do.  I hate it, but there it is.  Same thing applies to t-shirts with the side-seams that twist.  Argh.

Y'all can do as you like with your own sheets in your own houses, but this is how we do it in mine.

The bed has to be made.  The folding of sheets I don't care about so much.  I have 2 sets. So one's in the closet so how ever it's folded doesn't matter much to me; it only takes up a small space as it is. My oldest is the one that's obsessed with properly folded laundry.  She was sitting with me one day and refolded it all when I was done.

Oh, you didn't mention T-Shirts did you?

Early in my marriage, my husband walked into the room holding one of his work t-shirts in his hand. "Honey" he says to me "you missed a spot on this t-shirt".

"A spot? What spot?" I ask.

With great aplomb, my husband held the T-shirt before my eyes and said "This one right here".

"Where?"

"Here!"

"Hold it up to the light, honey...I can't see it"

"Are you blind? Do you need a cane to walk or what? It's right here, see it?"

I saw it then. Looked like a little grease spot, maybe 1/8 of an inch circumference.

I said "sorry that didn't come out, but I'm sure no one will notice"

Not good enough for my beloved, he pursues the matter.

"Did you use Zout?" ( a pre-treater)

"Well, no. It IS a work shirt right? Don't you have, like, one thousand of them?"

There is a lot of back and forth about stains and pre-treating. About looking your best regardless of how you are dressed. About, it's just a damn t-shirt, throw it away if there is a spot.

Really. Is a 7  dollar T worth my time to pre treat..not just pre-treat, but use a laundry brush to scrub the stain?

I think not. 

"Honey" I said. " I am not going to pretreat a dang T-shirt. My standards tell me it is not worth the effort, if yours say otherwise then pre treat to your hearts content."

At that time I wished my husbands name was Al, because "Anal Al" has such a nice ring to it.

And yes, he does pre treat his own t shirts.

Heh. I pre-treat my own too. Every damn time I fry bacon. I've thought of an apron, but somehow I always think I can outsmart the splatter.

You pre-treat your tshirts? Another one!

Feh.  Cook it in the dang oven.  Disposable aluminum tray w/crumpled tinfoil on the bottom to keep the bacon up/out the grease.  Splatter's in the oven, not on the stovetop and the self-clean takes care of it (when ready).

----------

About stained clothing -- Gunsmith works in the garage on multiple projects, all dirty.  Sometimes filthy.  I wash those clothes, I don't worry about stains.  They're clean, but stained.  Tough.

Clothes have a hierarchy.  If you're doing something in a t-shirt you'd like to keep unstained, change your clothes first.  Once they're stained, they're okay for wearing around the house or for dirtier work, period.  Anything you want to wear out, don't wear for working in.

I think it means to use a stain remover on the article of clothing before you drop it in the wash. But what do I know - I can't even fold fitted sheets.

  I jusyt asked the wife if she knows how to fols a fitted sheet and of course Mrs. I know everything does and yes she pretreats and a stain in anything just drives her to distraction.

   Since I don't give a crap about stains I will leave the house in anything I happen to have on at the time which freacks her out because she feels it reflects on her.

   I on the other hand don't care what a world full of people that don't know me or I them think about the damned stain on a T SHIRT.

  She's tried for 41 years to get abudge out of me on that but so far I wear whatever I have on to any damned place I need to go.
