    Wink Alex, I'll take laundry pet peeves for $100

    Drives you nuts, but they do it over and over again

    What is tossing their shirts with one sleeve right side out and the other inside out into the laundry?

    What sound does the HE washer running in middle of the night make, followed by waking the dog up, and then ME?

    Dear Laundry,
    Things just aren't working out. I think you should see other people. It's not YOU. It's ME. I can still hang out with you twice a day, but you're going to have to wait for someone else to take you home. It's not that I don't like you. I just don't like you-like you. I'm sorry it has to be this way. Maybe things will change in the future when I have more time. Or when someone else notices you.

    buhbye and don't call me.

    tissues in a tight ball pushed so far down that even when you check the pockets you still don't feel it yet when you get the laundry after its washed everything is covered is shredded tissue!

    A red crayon in a pocket. Melted crayon streaks do not come out of anything.

    Since DH is the main person handing the washing and drying, doing about 15 of our roughly 20 loads a week, I don't have too many pet peeves.

    But, it does kind of bother me that no one seems to be able to get the dirty clothes in any basket, let alone the right basket. Most of the time my lazy bums will just toss their clothes into the laundry room and not get them in the dirty baskets. Goodness forbid I expect them to actually get them the correct basket. I mean how hard is it to put towels in the towel basket? Whites in the white basket? Colors in the color basket? Jeans in the jean basket?

    Sometimes I secretly wish the laundry room was a little smaller (it's around 180 sq ft) because maybe then they would think twice before filling the floor with their dirties.

    Oh and bring your empty hangers to the laundry room. There is a huge laundry pole we installed just for empty hangers. Daddy and I do not enjoy going room to room to get your hangers when you could easily bring them in the laundry room every few days.

    What is not washing out the laundry soap/softner cup and letting it dripping down the side?

    What is throwing a freshly laundered load on the bedroom floor instead of folding and putting away.

    What is the kitchen sponge that gets stuck inside and at the bottom of a pillowcase and you look all over for it.

    (just happened yesterday!) OR

    What is the lost sock that you have looked all over for only to find it two weeks later in the sleeve of a fleece top that was in the same load, when you put on the shirt???

    Dear daughters,

    No, I haven't seen your lip gloss, but I'm sure the washer and dryer has.

    Dear DH,

    Give me a flying freakin break. Take the crap out of your pockets and don't blame me. You are actually lucky that I bother to pick up your dirty pants laying 2 feet from the laundry basket that is so hard for you to put in the proper place.... but you like to shoot hoops. I figured this was a fun challenge for you, including your socks. But no....it's my fault that your wallet, employee applications and box cutters from work got washed.

    Putting 1-2 items in the washer and tell me I'm waiting to wash it when there is more dirty clothes. So no one else can use the washer. Really makes me angey.
