Have I mentioned I have the slight ability to be lazy?...On ocassion?

Earlier today, somebody (and I'm not saying who) said to me, "That laundry isn't going to walk itself up to the laundromat."

The best thing about having a house is the washer and dryer in the basement.

The second best thing is having a computer in the basement for when you're waiting on the washer or dryer.

BTW, you MUST see Jeri's response to your complaint about somebody (redacted)ing you.

Tom,

We do have a house...with a washer and dryer in the basement. Somehow, we just got into the habit of dropping off the laundry instead of doing it ourselves.

Please re-read the title of this post.

::skiffs off to look for Jeri's response.::

Walk, to the laundromat? Walk, you say?

And you call yourself lazy. Bah.

I have a laundry room upstairs between the bedrooms - we don't carry the laundry anywhere. Now that's lazy.

Pay careful attention Jim,

Doing laundry in the basement:
-Put it in the bag.
-Take it to the basement.
-Walk back upstairs.
-Walk back downstairs after enough time has passed.
-Put laundry in the dryer.
-Walk back upstairs.
-Walk back downstairs after enough time has passed.
-Fold clothes.
-Carry them upstairs.
-Put them away.

10 steps.

Dropping laundry at laundromat:
-Put it in the bag.
-Take it to laundromat.
-Go home (stopping at the other stores you had to go to anyway).
-Go pick up laundry after enough time has passed.
-Bring it home.
-Put it away. (its already folded).

6 steps.
(Actually only 5 steps if you pull things out of the bag and ignore the final "put it away" step.)

Just tell me who's lazy now.

This is why you're an Intel type and I'm a Logistics type.

I am spoiled and have a once-weekly housekeeper - but laundry isn't in her job description. :P

Tom said...

I'm glad I wasn't the only one who thought doing the laundry at home was the lazy way.

And yes, "A man needs a maid." Neil Young or CSNY or something.

If we had a maid, I wouldn't mind her tromping up and down the stairs. Sheesh. What're you guys thinking?
