Everyday Dose Of Reality
I cannot BE, the only person on this planet who lives with a bunch of individuals with the understanding a laundry basket is as rare as a neon pink unicorn, sporting chartreuse spots, busting out the tango! If you are one of those individuals who do not fully grasp the concept of what is called a laundry basket, this post is for you. Trust me when I tell you that you are not alone in this quandary of where to put your dirty clothes. I am sure there are hundreds of thousands, maybe even millions I shudder to think, in my house there are six.
Here are three samples of laundry baskets you might find in your home.
Do not be mislead by the different showy colors, they are all intended for the same use. If you are a man and your spouse has chosen a laundry basket that may blend with the room decor simply ask which item on display is the proper one. Wicker laundry baskets with a lid can be misleading. Some of the wicker containers with lids are actually garbage, but that is a whole different post we wont tackle today. suffice it to say, I wouldn’t want any one of you to get an ass chewing for dropping dirty socks in the trash. Rule of thumb, when in doubt, ask.
In our house I have chosen to go with model 3. Due to the fact my laundry room is almost a quarter mile down the hall, wheels are very important to me. I have several of this type, one in every room and others strewn about the house. Why you may ask. Truth? I apparently live with a boat load of strippers! At times, on more than one occasion I have observed a family member leave a room totally clothed. As they make their way down the hallway, clothing seemed to fly off their bodies. Now, some of them have claimed there is a wind current in said hallway, and it literally SUCKS the clothing right off their bodies. I am on the verge of hiring Ghost Hunters or Ripley’s Believe It Or Not to come investigate their claims.
I realize my laundry issue may seem trivial to you. All I can say is you must not be the person doing the laundry in your household. If you are the washer of the house, I am sure you too have had this issue or it is yet to come. When you are holding a mystery sock which resurfaced after a seven month siesta, and you wonder where it has been you will understand. While holding said sock realizing it fits in your hand like a weapon, the wheels in your mind turn. Due to the fact it has been stretched out to be four feet long and is as stiff as a flag pole you are smacked with the sudden urge to start poking the owner of the sock, with THE sock. People, people, do you really want the person who does your laundry in your house coming at you with a sock such as this? THEN DON’T CREATE ONE! Find a laundry basket and dispose your dirty clothing in it. Just because Lucky Charms are magically delicious does not mean that magic extends to your laundry, and it wont magically appear in the laundry room 😉
