It's that time of the month (or week if you're a normal clean human)…LAUNDRY DAY.

1. The day has arrived — you have exhausted all pairs of underwear and socks.

2. So the first thing you do is try to separate colors, whites and darks… but what about grey? Is grey a color? It's between white and black, where the hell does it go?!


I'll just put it in colored this time around I guess...

10. But because of your ADD you leave them sitting in the dryer.

13. And when they come out warm and (mostly) wrinkle free, you feel so accomplished!

15. But because you are lazy, you fall asleep with the clothes still laid out on your bed.

16. And they sit there haunting you...


"Eh, I'll just do it later"
