Each week, I tell my husband to make sure he empties out his pants pockets.
He responds that he always checks that his pockets are emptied. When I double check his pockets, there is still a random paper, money, or an occasional pen left inside.
I feel he is responsible for emptying out his own pockets and wouldn’t even double check if I weren’t afraid that whatever he left inside may damage our clothes or worse…the washing machine.
I am human like all of us.
I forget to double check at times.
Yesterday, I was shoving our jeans into the machine when something made me stop. I pulled out all the clothes until I found the one pair of my husband’s jeans I had forgotten to double check.
What was inside?
Our cell phone!
We have been kinda quiet around here.
I got all my laundry done without my neighbor pulling another power play. Our landlord had a talk with her about staying out of the laundry room when it is not her day. Her husband was present during the conversation which helped, I think.
