See, jparks has the tendency to wear fancy clothes, unlike all the other engineers at Google who happily wear their free Google tee shirts. But not my jparks, daily he wears slacks and button downs that have to be ironed. By me. All the freaking time. If I don't get stay on top of the laundry, the pile can easily grow as tall as our dresser and then I have to spend a full weekend day ironing.
But now I'm free and the man who once said he has a personality and that's why he doesn't wear khaki pants will now be in charge of his own laundry. Yesterday afternoon I pulled all of my clean clothes out of the pile, ironed them, and put them away. As things come out of the dryer I throw jparks' stuff onto his growing pile and my stuff gets put away. You wouldn't believe how much quicker the laundry goes when I'm only dealing with half of it.
The only downside is that now jparks will be wearing his clothes wrinkled since he won't iron. Because you know, nothing says "I won't wear a tee shirt because I'm better than that" like wearing horrifically wrinkled clothes. Should you see him in the next few days and he looks like a homeless guy heading to a business meeting, please feel free to make fun of him. That's assuming you can talk through your laughter.
