2014 A-Z Blogging Challenge……….12th of 26 Pet Peeves


My Pet Peeve for the Letter L

L is for Laundry

Laundry is another chore I really hate doing. It’s time consuming and damn it I always seem to miss the fabric softener cycle so I have to revert to the dryer sheets for some loads. Not only that, but as soon as I think that I have finished the laundry it seems the dirty clothes fairy has decided to add more clothes the hamper.

 
What really is a pet peeve of mine for laundry is when others do not turn their clothes right side out after taking them off and then just tossing them into the hamper. Not only do I have to turn shirts and pants right side out, but when they leave their socks all balled up and I have to stick my hand into them and straighten them out in order for them to get clean now that really ticks me off, not to mention the fact that I am to blame when only one sock is washed and the mate is M.I.A.

 
 It’s not bad enough that after the laundry is done and I fold it neatly and put it in piles, the owners of those piles just lets it sit there for days. One time I actually put folded piles of clothes all over the bed thinking they would put the clothes away, but no such luck. Those piles went from piles on the bed to a huge pile on the floor. Grrrrrr is all I can say about that!
Since I will never be rich enough to have a maid do the laundry, I guess all I can do is...........

...and another thing...or two...
please empty your pockets and zip the jeans before laundry piling them.
AND I hate when the load keeps getting unbalanced every three seconds and I spend all my time going in and redistributing the load...
Great rant!

Balled up socks are the worst!

Cute theme for A/Z with pet peeves. I don't like to fold laundry, which is so funny because it doesn't take that long, but it seems like forever, especially trying to match socks.

Visiting from A/Z; enjoy the rest of the challenge!

haha this one is too hilarious specially that socks pic- happens often to me. I wish some one does the laundry too when I lazily sleep and read a book:)
