Hmmmm.... must be the same guy who turns my sock around .... while they are on my feet! Hubby says it is because I walk on the side of my feet. But I often wear socks to bed, and the heels on one foot always are on the top of my ankles when I wake up, or when I just wear socks and slippers all day, ditto. But yes, I have clothes that I put in right-side-in, and take out of the dryer inside-out. Every time. Just one of those great mysteries of life!!

Do you live alone or with someone? Do you have a maid come and clean your house - maybe she turns the clothes inside out or inside in.

I hope you find the solution to your laundry problem.

These two should be good for a nice long run:

Toilet seat up or down?

Toilet paper over the top or underneath?

I feel like I lost my manhood years ago when I agreed that toilet paper must turn so that the roll turns top-toward the wall. It's backward, by my way of thinking, but my wife insisted 28 years back and that was that. And as for the toilet seat problem, I learned that one very quickly. It was much easier to develop the muscle memory to put the seat down every time than face my wife's wrath.

Yes, it's true. I'm a trained husband. And they wonder why we go to hunting camps in the fall. Reminds me of a certain camp, on the other side of the lake from Mudbug.

If you have a cat, the TP has to unroll from underneath. Otherwise, you'll come home to a bathroom full of unrolled TP because your cat thinks it's fun to spin the TP roll! Otherwise, it should unroll over the top.

As far as seat up or down - when I lived alone, it stayed up unless I needed it down - The practical and efficient solution. No that I live with a woman, efficiency and practicality have nothing to do with home life so it is down unless I need it up (and then only briefly).

My friend used to refuse to wash any clothes that weren't turned the right side out. I personally have given up the fight and just fix 'em after they're washed.

As far as the seat goes, I live with 3 men and have learned to check first!

The paper isn't much of an issue in my house. I'm just happy if it's there when needed!

There are some clothes I actually wash and store inside out ... almost anything black or navy. I have had white pets for years, and there is always lint. So I just turn them right-side-in when I go to wear them!
