    Simple, I'd just go out and purchase a similar looking shirt from the same brand. Accidents happen there's no use throwing a tantrum ha ha.

    Duh, she has to wear your shirt for the day, barely buttoned, sans bra.

    I like this one.

    But also, what is up with having just one favorite shirt? I mean, if you have a maker you like, you buy multiple shirts - provided it's not something that's hard-to-match.

    Isn't there a product on the market that claims to reverse the damage of shrinking?

    I've seen things like hanging weights to the bottom to other things like Stretch and Dry.

    What's the use of a woman who can't even do laundry?

    Not trying to make a joke here. I can't understand a woman of all people not knowing how to do the laundry.

    And who uses warm wash for clothing anyway?

    Today's women are functionally useless. None of them can cook. None of them can clean. None of them can do laundry. I don't know why we put up with them.

    She should be hanging your shirts on a clothesline. Again, no joke.

    Dryers destroy clothes. Maybe they're okay if you run a hotel and need clean linens constantly, otherwise I don't see much use for them. A few clothes benefit a bit from tumble dry if the fabric tends to stretch too much, but even then such fabrics should always be run on the lowest temperature setting since they tend to be delicate. Such clothes will stretch out again after a wearing.

    Laundry isn't tough. So many people unknowingly accelerate the destruction of their clothes.

    The easiest way to avoid this is to do laundry yourself. I've had to deal with ironing mistakes (at least if I make a mistake, I know where it is) and simple things like hanging shirts the wrong way in the closet. I have a coworker in Germany who has a maid and he doesn't even let her iron.

    You buy it because she does your laundry for free....then you unplug the dryer.
