Last week my boyfriend did a really nice thing: the laundry. I’m not going to say that I was 100% confident in his ability to do so, nor was I thrilled about the proposition.
I’ve know him for 9 years, people.
I knew something would happen. I even said, aloud, “I’m pretty sure something is going to go wrong.” Maybe I jinxed him or maybe he just sucks at laundry.
All I know is that when we were putting it away I found this gem. May I preface by saying I had one of ‘those’ days and would have cried if someone looked at me wrong?
But to get the full effect of what went down in the dryer last Thursday…
And on top for the full comparison. No it does not still fit and no I did not actually try it on. My laziness knows no bounds.
Just look at the freaking sleeves on these things!
Anyone having a little girl that needs a sweater?
If you can imagine how I reacted, you’re probably wrong. I started laughing hysterically. Hys-ter-ically. It was the highlight of my day. Plus, I kinda seriously hated that sweater.
I think I might cut off the sleeves and use them in place of a sock for a sock bun. It will transition well to when my hair goes grey from all the stress I undertake riding public transportation daily, no?
hahah i like how resourceful you are (sleeves -> sockbun)…and yes, i’ll be right there with you w/ the grays from public transportation (i.e. the bane of my existence).
Yo, Olivia could totally use a new sweater. Though I’m pretty positive she’d put it on and say it was itchy because if it’s not 100% cotton (possibly 95% cotton, 5% spandex), she’s not wearing it. Sigh.
LIterally crying over here. You are TOO funny. I’m glad you laughed about it — one time my babysitter (back in the days of juicy jumpsuits) washed all them together and they ALL got ruined. talk about washing money. I was so upset. HAHA.
I was about to kill my bf this morning too. Last night I wasn’t feeling well and fell asleep on the couch.. all I said was “please wash the dishes, please.”
What did I see when I walked into the kitchen this morning??? Ya. Dishes.
Had he been awake I would have kicked him.
oh no haha. I’ve done this before!
HAHAHA I love that comparison its so terrible/hilarious.
Bo shrunk my favorite sweater… I wish I had laughed. I cried. Like a child. And totally sock bun those sleeves up. I’ve been wearing my hair up in one when it’s dirty… Which is pretty much all the time.
OH my gosh. My husband shrunk this gorgeous light coat that I loved and only wore once. Yep. Was annoyed. Oh well.
i’m dying right now. it’s child-sized!
SERIOUSLY the worst!!!!!
Oh no! I hate that!!!
haha this is kinda hilarious.
hahahaha oh gosh. talented boy you’ve got there. i’m the only one who touches the laundry around our place- i’ve had to stop the boy from putting a new red shirt in with the load of white before. super cool. hope you can use it for something else!
Oh nooo! I have had this happen to me before- it’s awful! I think you should totally use the sleeves for your sock buns!
I try not to let my husband do much of anything around the house. It’s pretty sad, but let’s say he ‘washes’ the dishes, I know I will be washing them again because I’m not exactly sure what he does when he ‘washes’ them, but it’s certainly not cleaning them.
Make it into a wine cozy!
ah no!! thought that counts :/
Now following you after seeing your post on A Simple Affair. The hubs has done a number on a few of my favorite things over the years. I’m waiting for half shirts to come back in style.
Hahahaha! I’ve also been with my husband for 9 yrs (married 2.5) and I do not let him do the laundry.Ever. I’m pretty sure he’s done it twice maybe three times in our entire relationship. He just sucks at it.
hiiiiiilarious! gah. too funny!!
EEK! I flat out refuse to let Matt do the laundry. There’s always something. He’s pretty good now about reading tags before he washes or dries but usually he’s just oblivious. Which sucks because I bitch about how I do EVERYTHING around here. (it’s because I’m a crazy OCD bitch who needs things done her way…) sigh
Hil-ar. That’s all I gotta say!
Oh my gosh–THE SLEEVES!!! Can’t handle it. YES, try to use it for a sock bun and then send me pictures.
oh man that sucks! he was trying to do a nice thing & that happens! ahhh! maybe if you keep wearing it around the house it will stretch out? Just found your blog, thought i’d say hello & sign up! Check out mine if you get the chance!
oh my! I have not laughed this hard in a while! Thanks! But sorry about your sweater 🙁
Oh my gosh, I would cry! Why don’t you like the sweater? I think it’s cute!!
