Being exhausted, burned out, and overworked is not fun, but a funny thing happened to me this morning. I was never a bachelor so I'm not used to doing this kind of thing, but this morning I had no clean pants, so I dug some fairly clean khakis from the hamper, put them on, realized they were terribly wrinkled and I sprayed some Downey Wrinkle Relaxer on them while I was wearing them. I ran the fan in the car and by the time I got to work 40 minutes later they looked pretty good. If I was more alert I might feel ashamed, right now I just think it's funny.

Happily, my consecutive days worked streak ends tomorrow, as I get my first day off in about a month. June 3rd was my last day off. I'm going to sit on the couch and watch a month's worth of DVRed Daily Shows and completely veg out. Oh yeah, and I really need to do some fucking laundry. :)

You mean spraying your pants and shirt down with water and popping them in the dryer for 10 minutes doesn't count as ironing?

One of my friends knew a guy in college who only had one good set of work clothes, so he just sprayed them down with Febreze (http://www.febreze.com/sites/en_US/febreze/index.jsp) every morning.

Me, I can't even wear the same shirt twice without washing it.

I'll wear a pair of pants two days in a row to conserve laundry. This is a holdover from my laundromat days, before the Appliances came.

Dark days.

I need a washer and dryer so bad. This coin-op foolishness is unacceptable.

Sadly, having my own washer/dryer has just made me super-lazy about actually doing laundry.

"Hm. I can no longer see my floor because of this filthy laundry. Oh well, I'll just do one load since I don't have to do it all at once anymore."

God dammit, me!

That is exactly what I would do too, and I would love every minute of it. I'd wash, like, one pair of underwear and a tie. I'd be indecent, but I'd be indecent and respectable.

I only have three pairs of pants, and one pair of jeans. I'm only allowed to wear the jeans on Friday, so I have to wear one pair twice in one week. It doesn't help that the other two pairs look exactly alike.

Pants can definitely be worn more than once per laundry cycle. Shirts, on the other hand...not so much. I just can't get over.


I don't know what you guys' problem is, I like ironing! It's very relaxing. If I had the time, I'd iron everything I wear before wearing it.

When I stayed with a family in Germany for a week the mother ironed my underpants.

PROTIP: I have many videos of German mothers ironing underpants.

Hot.

PROTIP: You don't want to see the condition of the underpants in German porn. You really, really, really don't.

I've never ironed anything. Not even once, and I'm kind of proud of that.

I don't iron things. I just know me and a hot iron would end in dark comedy.

I iron things when I have to, and I've had no mishaps, but it takes about four times longer than it should.

I would iron if I knew how... or had the space... and had a profession that required it.

(Those goofy checkered chef pants do serve a purpose after all).

Yeah, I don't want to give off the impression that I'm great at ironing. I've yet to burn down the house or scald myself, but I assume that's sheer luck, and like Schmidt, it takes me a long time...though I can do it faster than I used to.

Febreze also makes a handy deodorant.

WHAT HATH GOD WROUGHT?

Completely stenchless skunks who will be left entirely helpless when my shady monorail scheme bankrupts their city and leaves them open for attack by foreign animals.

Why would I do this? Well, as a god of skunks, my ways are not your ways. A day to you is but a twinkle in my eye. An odor to you is not even a stinkle to my nose.
