Isn't It Funny....., Part 2


Isn't it funny how when you wait to the last minute to wash a load of darks some asshole, uh, I mean hubby, leaves a wad of Kleenex in his pocket? So of course when you go to pull your black jeans out to put them in the dryer so you can wear them an hour later they, and everything else in that load, are covered with loads of lint. That asshole.

It is even funnier when you realize that not only are the clothes covered with lint, but they have some type of jelly looking stuff on them. Of course you continue pulling clothes out, looking for evidence to hold against hubby when he gets home hoping something is salvageable. And wondering WTF kind of jelly he had in his pocket.

Then you realize it wasn't that asshole after all. It was that dumb ass.

That dumb ass who washed a pull up with the load of darks. She I that dumb ass will never make that mistake again.

And if She I that dumb ass does? I'm sure a way can be found to blame it on hubby.

Is it only my old eyes playing tricks on me, or is John Edwards over their in my My Blog Log visitors????

I have been that dumb ass in the past, not a pull up but nearly anything else that doesn't belong in the washer. And by golly that is John Edwards in your blog log visitors. I guess someone is moving on up. Perhaps he read about your countdown til the Bush Bus leaves.

Ha! Well, considering that some test told me that the candidate my views are most aligned with is John Edwards, I have to say that it's no suprise that he'd enjoy your blog too.

I've never washed a Pull Up, glad to know that some jelly stuff coats all your clothes if I do. I have washed pantyliners before. Surprisingly, they hold up pretty well.

Oh yeah washed a diaper once, that gelatin mess was nasty...and I do believe that is John Edwards, curious.

I've found all sorts of stuff in my wash - rocks, office supplies, diapers, panty liners, wood, cell phones, credit cards, and best of all money. I love the money - it's the universe's way of giving this SAHM some props.

I always blame everything on my hubby too - isn't that why you get married?

Felicia said...

Guilty! I have done that before. Dumbasses Unite!

Mommapeas said...

I do it all the time. Then I blame anyone else. Anyone, dog, kid, whomever is closest.

That hair, those eyes. Yup, definitely Mr. Edwards. Strange, but I'm sure he had a good read. Maybe he just wanted to "get away from it all."

Alison said...

Yep..that is John Edwards...I salute you!! You are now famous!!

I feel for you on the laundry thing...but in this house it is usually my son!!

Yucko. I haven't had that happen..yet. A whole pad of paper? Yes. Similar outcome.

We are mostly guilty of kleenex in the pocket, but once we had a small party at the house and someone put a disposable diaper in my diaper pail. My CLOTH diaper pail. Needless to say when I washed those diapers they came out with these nasty gel beads all over them. I was so pissed. I don't know how many more times I had to wash them before I got them all out. Blech.

That Kleenex crap JUST happened to me today. Fucker.

And I've also done the pull up wash too...Took me a long time to figure out what that jelly was.

Natalie said...

Bwahahaha.

Oops.

devilish southern belle said...

LOL, my husband left a partial pack of cigarettes in a pair of jeans that I washed. What a mess! But it wasn't white lint and jelly goo....I think you have me beat!

Jennifer said...

Whoa...done that before! How about when you wash an item of clothing with a sticker stuck to it? So much fun to try and scrape it off. My oldest son likes to leave ballpoint pens on his pockets....any good tips on how to remove ink stains?

Crys said...

I thought the pull up was funny... but then the John Edwards comment caught me so off guard I laughed my butt off!

That Chick Over There said...

John Edwards thinks you are hot.

Not a Granny said...

Umm...yup it looks like John Edwards was here!

I will never complain about lipstick being left in pockets. Never, never never!!

Bren said...

Been there, done that! Isn't it a lovely mess?

And I? Blame everything on the asshole!

Serina Hope said...

If washing a diaper a dumb ass makes, then a dumb ass I am...
The clothes will eventually be normal again...one day...

Rachel said...

Gah, that dumbass!

I may or may not have done that before.

More than once.

Kleenex is nothing, chica... try doing a load of wash, then drying it before realizing some dumbass (NOT me!) left a PEN in their pocket!!!! Blue ink all over my undies, bras, socks, pants, shirts, towels...ARGH!!! And then, imagine a week later, the same dumbass doing it all over again!

Dumbass is now responsible for doing his own laundry.

elena jane said...
