Your new name here is Private Einstein.
Unbeknownst to you all, I whipped up half a dozen punishments before we started. I feel they are fair.
They were all pre-numbered in advance so I am not making this up as I go.

Punishment Number 2 is:
2)
You will do one load of someone elses laundry. This will include the dryer or ironing, whichever applies.
You will not tell them why you are offering. Hopefully, this will be for someone you live with but the choice is yours.


Have fun Dig. You may as well launder that new shirt with it.
That's all well and good but where were you last evening before the shirt began to organize my wardrobe? While I was sleeping, he collared the rest of the Shirts and has them buttoned up in line right behind him, leaving me completely cuffed. I wasn't too worried at the news until I learned that the Pants had pledged their support. Turns out they have pretty deep pockets. My Footwear collective wants to turn on their heel and walk out. Luckily for me, when my Suits and Sport Coats were canvassed, thanks to the erratic behavior off the Odd Jackets and the fact that there is almost no Vesting, they won't be a factor and they mostly just vented.

I can't be as certain about the Ties though since they might go either way.

The Boxers are firmly wedged behind the Pants butt they're thinking of filing a brief. The Tees claim they won't be out muscled and the Gloves are having a fit. I've got the Scarves wrapped up and the Outerwear is mostly grandfathered. Unfortunately, the Pocket Squares can tell when my nose is out of joint so they've decided to pick-it.

All this means that I might have to lockout the closet since most of them have a union label and they're invoking their zipper clause. I'm going to meet today to see if I can get them to agree to pattern bargaining so I can show just cause for the additional laundry.

Wish me luck!

Einstein out.

Who's laundry are you going to be doing by the way? You don't have to say, but I sure would like to be there to see it happen. I don't know what all of what you typed means but i'll focus on the part I understood and wish you luck.

Suffice it to say that we won't be mentioning the unmentionables.

We leave God out of this thread, know why?
Because in this thread, I AM the Big Mac around here, and you will chow down.

I'm too late to participate. But I've had no clothing purchases since late in 2012 when I replaced some staples that were worn. I do regularly shine my shoes. Most laundering is done in house. My dry cleaning never reaches $100 during a month.

Best of luck fellows.
