dear husband,

i love you very much....
except for when i open up your undershirt drawer to see this:


EXHIBIT A
brandon's folding job and/or inability to grab the top undershirt
without wrecking the rest of the stack.
{it has yet to be determined which of these incidents is the cause of this mess....
i've considered planting a video camera somewhere in our room.}


every week i do laundry.
and every week i fold all your clothes so neat & tidy.
 making sure everything is in it's perfect place...
so you can imagine the look of horror on my face when i open your drawer
to add to the stack & see what a damn mess you've made.

{it looks something like this}


once i've calmed down a bit,
i grab your mess and re-fold everything.
then i put it all back in it's place.
like it should be.


EXHIBIT B
my folding job and obvious ability to clean up & add to the stack in a organized manner.




we'll be working on your folding/removal from the stack technique
in the up coming weeks.
be prepared.

your wife

Hahaha this is hilarious! I've given up with my partner, he does exactly the same thing. Digs through his clothes beacuse apparently he only likes to wear whats on the bottom of the pile. Now his clothes go unfolded into the drawers. He has promised me that if I start folding them again he'll stop making a mess of them. I said you fold, then you'll know how truly frustrating it is!! Hope you have better luck than me x

My boyfriend used to do the same exact thing! It drove me batty! His newest thing is leaving t-shirts that have been worn only once hanging over our closet door. a) t-shirts worn once = not okay to wear again. b) is it so hard to just put them back on the hanger in the closet or toss them in the direction of our hamper? Boys. He's getting better at least :)

I changed our whole laundry folding system so our t-shirts and other foldables would no longer be an issue - T-shirts/jeans/sweaters are now folded and laid in stacks in the drawer like this - http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/chicago/cleaning/5-tips-for-organizing-dresser-drawers-136085

Changed my life! Haha- it's the little things :)
