These people have obviously never re-grouted a shower.

Thats the real rocket ship ride.

My last time heading to the laundromat was in college.  This particular laundromat had a smoking side and a non-smoking side.  You would see women smoking while folding their laundry.  It seemed counterproductive to me.

That reminds me. It's that time of the decade to wash my bed sheets.

This. The first few months saw me exercising at home and actually losing weight. The last few months can't bear to look at me!

I have a washer and dryer, but the guy at the laundromat sells cheap out of state cigarettes.  They just added a taco stand also.

So get the shot and wear the mask and social the distance, and quit whining.
We grownups are now bored with your oppositional defiance disorder.

Well, you can buy used ones in any common vending machine.

True story: There was a guy in my fraternity who never - and I mean literally never - washed his sheets. By the end of the year, the fitted sheet on his bed looked like the Shroud of Turin. Yet somehow he was a total player.

There's something really satisfying about knowing that all the dirty laundry is clean and folded and put away.  Then you have the urge to tell your family they aren't allowed to wear clothes or use towels or... and that inevitably leads to wondering if you can get away with having them taxidermied so they never make another mess.  All in all, I find it better to leave everyone wearing dirty clothing.

Doing laundry is fine.  It's the folding part that is boring. Doing it while watching Netflix makes it bearable.

I got my daily walks that are more exciting, laundry has been an issue since the washer has been acting wonky and the guy is coming today so that is nice.
 
2021-04-19 10:15:36 AM  
I used to go to a laundromat, back in my grad school days, that had a restaurant/bar upstairs. The machines were all numbered and there was an electronic message board in the resto/bar that would let you know when your wash or dry cycle was over. Great way to wait out the laundry drudgery, but could end up a bit pricey if you had a lot of stuff to wash.

Have my own washer and dryer now. Still drink while it does its stuff, for old times sake.

If I didn't have an exercise bike, gym grade inversion table, weight bench, two twenty pound dumbbells, two thirty pound dumbbells, and roughly 95 pounds of body weights in my studio apartment, I would be in Gilbert Grape's mother territory because I stress eat. And eat my emotions.

I rent a studio mother-in-law house in the woods and on an island. I am blissfully isolated and only rarely see my sweet old landlady.

Subby missed the whole point of Wall-e.  Those people didn't do laundry.

Doing laundry is actually a nice self-care task that keeps you connected to yourself and the knowledge that life is full of such mundane tasks, and these little chores ARE your life, not the last trip you took to Disneyland.  These are the things that make up a quality life--taking care of yourself and your belongings, taking care of others, fixing whatever needs to be fixed if we can do it.  Not buying a bunch of shiat and picking up our dry-cleaned laundry because we just don't make  timeto deal with our own shiat.  We have to go on vacation!

Nobody gets it, do you?

Pretty much. The only thing I've see is mask wearing, but all the other stuff goes out the window.

Pheromones.  He was a dirty, dirty, boy.

Laundry is awesome. Anytime I am wasting a Saturday or Sunday drinking and/or playing video games, I remember that I can always do laundry and regain a bit of productivity back in my life. A load of laundry later and the only thing I have to worry about is the next day's hangover.
 
2021-04-19 10:28:50 AM  
I like to fold towels.
 
2021-04-19 10:34:42 AM

Flip the sheets...get at least another 5 years out of 'em before washing.

2021-04-19 10:47:04 AM  
Arguably, the three best feeling in the world are.....full tank of gas. Feeling ready to go as far as a tank will give freedom.....new pair of socks. If you don't relish the feeling, you haven't bought new socks in awhile.....all your laundry done. New towels, clean sheets any combination of your best feeling to wear togs.

So, yeah. 1/3 should really be about quite right.

If you are feeling the other two

I don't mind laundry, though I live alone and I'm a guy, so really the washing machine is my hamper, until its full.  then a tide pod & some softener go in.

If i had a family, or was with a lady who was serious about laundry (honestly every woman I ever dated was shocked at my methods.  mixing underwear & towels & whites? madness!) i would not like the laundry process.

Grocery shopping, I'm just glad amazon fresh is a thing. I really only go to the store for fresh fruit, the occasional misc item or some booze.

I always shower right before bed, so I don't really see the point of washing the bed sheets. If anything, the sheets should get cleaner just by touching me. By the way, are sheets supposed to bend? (Shamelessly stolen from a cartoonist whose political views have very publicly been very ugly in recent years.)

Holy shart, people are boring.

I enjoy laundry, nine months of the year anyway, because it's a fine excuse to spend ten minutes in the backyard hanging on the line, and that's pretty awesome.  I don't miss laundromats one iota though.

When I was a kid I'd love to get clothes out of the dryer with lights off. Static made for mini light show.

Working from home with two young kids, one doing virtual learning, and a wife who also works from home, ANY time that you can carve out ten minutes to be alone with your thoughts is a highlight. A wet shave every other day is practically a sacred ritual these days.

Sounds pretty cool. I'd save a couple loads a month just to grab a taco (or five) and a beer (or five) and hang out.
