    Ok, I can kind of laugh today, but yesterday I was FURIOUS...

    I had asked FI to put a few loads of his laundry in and I had left our sheets on the laundry room floor, since I was planning to do them after...
    He decides to shove in our sheets with the last bit of his laundry.

    A little while later, he attempts to refill a small spray bottle with the large bottle of Javex BLEACH and accidentally spills some (he says a little, but it must've been A LOT), which dribbles into the laundry machine...

    At this point the load of laundry is on the final spin cycle (with no other water in the machine to dilute it...)

    The result....

    Is he trying to prove he shouldn't be asked to do laundry? LOL

    Anyone know of any good sheet sales going on right now in Toronto?!?

      I would have FREAKED if I found that lol I would have calmed down and laughed later, but still would have freaked first lol

      FI does all of our laundry, and every time I'm keeping my fingers crossed that nothing comes out the wrong colour lol

        At least it was only sheets and not your favorite pair of jeans or something....Plus you can still sleep on them, they only look weird

          I would've been upset also... I'm happy to hear you can laugh about it now :) I think I know something that will be on the registry!!

          FI puts the laundry in and changes it but then I usually fold it. He is the worst folder lol Thankfully he is pretty good about not mixing the wrong colors and keeping the bleach away from everything :)

            Men are so funny when they try to do chores. I've learned to GENTLY correct them (actually that backfires sometimes, too) and don't nag or criticize. They won't do anything if they feel nagged. It's so hard not to freak out. FH loaded the dishwasher the other day and it was so cluttered and in disarray that nothing got clean. I just laughed.

                Typical guy move! It's hard to just not feel bad for them at times.

                  Well... Inked is totally right... at least it wasnt' a full load of your favourite jeans...

                  As for a sheet sale, you should set the criteria for new sheets, and send FI to purchase, when he sees how much a nice set of sheets costs... he'll be ever more careful!

                    Uggh, that sucks - especially since he was trying to do his part in the chores. He must feel awful...

                    Yup, new sheets on the registry are in order!
