    I Do

    Normally I don't mind, when I am just doing my laundry, because at the most it takes two loads, however, I am doing EVERYONE'S laundry. I'll be lucky if I get it all done today. Plus gotta do the ironing, and ugh! I hate laundry.

    Dorm Laundry Sucks

    I don't really mind doing the laundry at my parents' house, although it means I have to do it Mom's way (she makes it a drawn-out pain in the back that takes at least 2 days) and fold my dad's underwear. At least there I can use the kitchen and living room or do other chores...

    A Family of Four

    I hate folding laundry sooo much.I am a bit of a perfectionist so I NEED the clothes to be perfect. If the towels aren't all folded the same way I have to redo them. If my shirts don't stack neatly I have been known to freak out a little. My husband(been together 7 yrs)has...

    Always the Laundress

    I have always done laundry, whether it was my parents' laundry or my boyfriend's laundry. I would love it if I wasn't always the one doing it.

    I have about four loads worth piled on the

    couch beside me... Every now and then I glare at it, willing it to fold itself... It hasn't even flinched. Where's The Force when a girl needs it!!??

    It's Simply a Pain

    I thought about this because I happen to be doing laundry right now. I think it would be easier if I didn't learn how to do it from my dad. Most guys just toss everything in one load and put it on cold and let it go. But, no, my dad actually knows how to do it properly. So, I...

    I Need To Be Rich

    I hate doing laundry. My only alternative is to wear my clothes once and throw them away. That's expensive. I'd consider being a nudist, but I live in a part of the world where it can get quite cold, so really not an option. I also hate shopping. So, I'd need to hire...

    Mount Washmore

    With a family of 5, one busy week followed by one busy weekend leads to a Sunday filled with freakin laundry. If I don't there will be nothing to wear this week. Even when I do a little every day and try to stay on top of it, the second I turn my back....POW!!!!! An entire day...

    Selfish Ones That Act As If They Are The Only Ones That Do Their Laundry.

    I'm disabled and it's hard enough to do my own laundry without these selfish ****** that think they are the only ones that do laundry! They leave their clothes in the washers and dryers and don't show up to collect them for hours. In my laundry room there are three rows of dryers...

    ISNT That I Hate It.

    I just really can't do the steps.  My laundry room is in the basement. There is not much I can do anymore.  Everything suffers.  I recently went through my laundry room.  I couldn't walk for a week.  I threw out about twenty bags of clothes. Almost...
