Underwear Overhead

I'm always complaining about my family members not cleaning up their dirty clothes.  I don't understand why it's so difficult for them to get their things off the floor and put them in the hamper. 

Well, today my husband had a brilliant solution to the problem.  I walked into my bedroom and looked up.  Hanging from the ceiling fan, was a pair of underwear, an undershirt, and a pair of socks.

"Really?" I said.

My husband came in with a huge grin on his face.  "They're not on the floor, are they?"

He had a point.  But I bet it took a lot longer to get those things on the fan, than it would've taken to walk over to the hamper and toss them in!

  3. HA! I love to aggravate my wife with silly things. Have your husband make a list, so I can use them on my wife! My wife follows your blog so have him email it to me. :-)

    1. He actually turned the fan on, because he thought they'd come down if they started spinning. No such luck. But yes, if those garments had been another day older, I'm sure the stench would've been unbearable! ;0)

  7. What is it with husbands and leaving clothes on the floor? :) Hanging them on the ceiling fan was quite creative though :)

  11. Seems to be funny!! In our house also used to throw the clothes here and there. Now i have trained my kid to put his dirty clothes properly in the bin. So when his father is not doing he used to tell him to put. Now house looks clean.

  16. LOL, pretty hilarious. I have the same problem though I never encountered them on the ceiling fan :) I asked my husband why the clothes are on the floor and he said, " they magically transport themselves on their own back to the hamper so why bother. " :)
