    I love how you can find these insanely expensive high tech garbage cans but trying to find a mediocre ironing board is literally impossible.

    Try finding a trash company that leaves your cans upright and a cleaners that doesn't break all your shirt buttons. I've finally found the latter after a multi-year search.

    BTW, I actually have a Simple Human and a Brabantia trash can, they're good, but not $100 good.

    it is a stupid system, especially if it involves adorable names like Nemo for giant storms.


    "how did you lose your grandmother"

    "that giant storm"

    "Sandy?"

    "no ... Nemo"

    "ohhhhhhhhh. ha. sorry. Nemo."

    I wash and iron all of my own shirts and I love bragging about it.

    The iron holder things on the end suck major horses ass. All big ironing boards seem to have them as well. Creates tons of issues, AMIRITE, Harvey??????

    That's a no go. I believe PB, like myself, uses the fat end of the board for ironing shirts so that little shelf would get in the way.

    EDIT - Lol, I was typing this before I saw your reply.

    I didnt own that specific model, but the one I had was removable. This was like 15 years ago though. That one may be.

    Fuck, you guys have this down to a science.

    Y'know, I'd like some good snow at this point. We still haven't really gotten any, and this is after last year where we got none.

    mostly rain seems like a long shot. It's just a matter of 2-3" or something like 6-8".


    I hope it latter.
