Hey, that's a pretty cool folding technique! And this can help me pick up at the laundromat, you say?

Well, I suppose it would work better for guys ... but if it will save guys time doing a boring task like laundry, then mastering this technique will have all the lazy guys flocking to you asking you to show them how to do it ... if you're into lazy guys then have a blast.

Where were the other 241 posted?

My Oma is that meticulous when folding clothes too. I remember offering to help her fold clothes one time, and I'm somewhat anal about folding clothes myself (when I DO it, that is) - fold shirts properly, fold underwear in three sections, etc.

So I started helping her fold shirts, and I swear to god, it would take her about half a minute per shirt, because she would be so meticulous about it. I could see that the several articles I folded were making her absolutely nuts, so I stopped. She really is the living embodiment of the German Hausfrau stereotype.

Of course, I know someone else on babble who irons her SHEETS. It's apparently not enough to take them out of the dryer immediately and fold them perfectly. No, they must be IRONED.

You know who you are.

I used to insist on hanging my collared shirts with all the collars pointing to the left, and the shirts themselves in "chromatic" order: reds, oranges, yellows, greens, blues, purples.

Now I'm down to just the collars facing left.

I think Ann Landers used to iron her towels or some such thing. Why iron anything? It'll just get wrinkled again. For that matter, why make your bed? It'll just get messy again. For that matter...

Well, strictly speaking, he's right. There are only so many things you can fold:

- a poker hand
- a shirt or other piece of clothing
- a paper airplane
- an origami thingy
- money

Of those, money is the most likely to impress someone, wouldn't you say?

We could easily test it though. Send two average looking guys to the laundromat. One guy folds t-shirts while another riffles a fat stack of c-notes. Whoever gets the most attention from the opposite sex wins.

Shirts and origami thingies are trickier to fold than notes... although I suppose it depends how you fold the notes, really, doesn't it? Or maybe the "cuteness" of the audience is a factor that I'm not taking into account here?

No, a movement on behalf of vowels. Vowel movements would involve x-rays and scopes and other messy things. We want people not to pass over vowels, not to pass vowels.

I don't remember ever folding a shirt. If I'se travelling, I just put the shirt and hanger in the suitcase. When I get to my destination, I hang them up. So there's a few wrinkles, who gives a sh*t? I'm assuming women like me for me, not for my damned shirts. I just wear Polo shirts, anyway.

OK, but I can already foresee a split in the movement. Some will say that passing over consonants is a bigger issue, at least in conversation. "G" in "-ing" suffixes may go extinct one day. So we could end up in that old hierarchy-of-deletions argument.

Tough to be "Y," they say. One part of the alphabet suspects you're a tourist, or just experimenting; the other oscilates between silly fantasies, and just contemptuously lumping you in with the first group.

You gotta know how to hold'em
Know how to fold'em
Know where to tuck them in
Know when to iron

Never count your money
When you're still in the laundry
There'll be time enough for counting
When the drying's done

Geez. Speaking of sheets, I gave up on those white bread sheets years ago - now I just use cotton _flannel_ sheets, nice and warm and are about as anti-iron as anything can get. Cold white sheets? Ugh. Liberate your bed! Go flannel!

Speak for yourself, Michelle.

I saw the video for folding dress shirts a few years ago, and I've used their technique ever since!

We gotta redistribute the wealth somehow.

Anyhow, I tried that Japanese folding-trick, and good golly it works! I have a stack of neatly folded t-shirts now --- sitting on an undifferentiated mass of pants and dress shirts. Suzette --- I might even do some laundry!

Why does it always have to be us guys folding the c-notes? If it was a gal folding the c-notes, it'll get my attention! (that, and a little flash of the leg).

You know who you are.


When one is single, and not a member of BWAGA, one needs to iron her sheets, since she never knows who might be seeing them. Wouldn't do for one's one-nighters to think that one is slovenly housekeeper!

Of course, when one's spouse has only eye-rolling contempt for ironing, one's standards relax a little. The ironing board is more used to display a feather boa than for its intended purpose.

If you are having one-nighters, you must transfer your membership to BWaGS, and resign from BWAGA, as clearly you are are getting some.

Heh. I knew. Secretly, I knew.

But andrean: You must know that the Duchess of Windsor ("One can never be too rich, or too thin") insisted on sheets that had been ironed not only on the board, but then again after they had been carried to the bed and fitted thereon.

Daily.

After I read that story, I just plain gave up on sheets. I mean, if I'm going to be a slattern by comparison whatever I do, I might as well have a slattern's advantages.

Try this site, there is a better quality video (the broadcast-mpg, which is 10Megs, but easier to follow.)

I can barely bring myself to say this, but we actually had to do that when I first joined the Navy. Yes, ironed once, then once again on the bed. Important skill to be honed in the defence of one's nation, as I'm sure you'll agree.
