Wrinkled Clothes

When clothes are wrinkled, Men and Women handle it very differently.

Women would iron wrinkled clothes.

Men would normally not iron wrinkled clothes, they would;

Stay seated as long as they could at their desk/cube at work, so no one would notice,
Turn the lights lower in the office (to make it harder to spot the wrinkles), say "its for the environment,"
Stay farther away from someone when you talk to them,
Stand behind something (desk, half wall, short cube wall, bushes, car, etc) when you talk to someone,
Lie and say, "Look at what this weather does to my clothes. Crazy!",
They would say, "Oh yeah, *this* is the new fashion style from Paris,"
They would say, "I'm going green. Do you know how much power an iron uses? It's crazy!",
They would say, "I assisted in a foot pursuit of a dangerous criminal before I got here. We lost em, but I got here on time,"
They would say, "These clothes were made from cotton from older sheep," *I wonder if anyone will get this one.*
They would say, "I take Yoga breaks. I took one right before I got here,"
They would say, "My iron was recalled. I'm still a little nervous about trying a new one,"
"You should see my other clothes that I didn't iron,"
They would say, "I sure miss polyester. You were saying?"
They would say, "It's the principle of the thing. Until they fix ironing boards to not make that annoying sound when you set them up, I will never iron anything again. Besides, it hurts the doggie's little ears when I set up the ironing board."

I never ironed until I moved in with MIL (Man I Love). Now, I iron 10 shirts per week - haha.

I NEVER iron. I REFUSE to iron. If something doesn't come out of the dryer without wrinkles. I throw it in the far reaches of my closet.

Ironically, I can see my wife using some of those excuses, too. She never irons!

Scream. This drives me up a wall. The only day of the week when my hubby really wears something other than a T-shirt & jeans is Sunday. He will grab a wrinkled shirt and for 20 years he has said, "The wrinkles will fall out!" UH. If they didn't fall out in the closet they won't fall out on him.

In the south, the women are judged if the men look shabby. This is something we go through each week. Ha. I make him take it back off so I can iron it. You men ...
