Here’s a riddle: What is something that never ever ends, you have to do it, and pretty much no one ever says thank you?
You guessed it—laundry.
They say the only two things in life that you can be sure of are death and taxes. But I think there’s one more. What about the endless pile of balled up socks that will never find a match ever again and the 19 pairs of pants that are somehow inside out with Power Rangers and/or Cinderella underpants stuck inside? What about that? What about forgetting that there is a load in the washer for three days and having to rewash it and then forgetting again and having to rewash it…over and over until the end of time? See? Laundry definitely needs to be on that list.
But to make it suck slightly less, here are some funny tweets from internet people who are never done folding towels or showing their kids where the hamper is, just like you.
Me [folding laundry]: “This is boring but necessary. I will endure this chore”
Cat: “Look at the nice bed this idiot is making me”

I’m not saying I’m a domestic goddess but I just finished the laundry & a bottle of wine at the exact same time.

And then God said, “yes Julie. You deserve $13 for opening the dryer on this Saturday morning. You do laundry for four people.” pic.twitter.com/ykAWPTMcNM

The main reason I fold laundry is to free up the laundry baskets to make room for more laundry.

My husband found a dollar in the washer today when he did a rare load of laundry. Then I did a load, and found only 87 cents.

Thought I was going to have to do laundry today, but then I found an older pair of yoga pants deep in my dresser drawer.

Birth. Childhood. Adolescence. Adulthood. Marriage. Kids. Laundry. Laundry. Laundry. Laundry. Laundry. Laundry. Laundry. Laundry. Death.

Let’s get married and have kids so instead of watching Game of Thrones you can tuck them in for the 5th time while I fold laundry.

The 3yo insisted on helping me put all the laundry away. It’s only taken us 6 hours & 10 minutes & apparently pants go in the fridge now.

Can’t. Doing laundry and trying to figure out if my wife’s tank-top-stitched-inside-another-tank-top is turned inside-out or not.

I’m working on a DIY project with my kids.
It’s called the “here’s how you put clothes in the laundry hamper” project.

Oh, you play Sudoku to challenge yourself?
I spend my days disentangling all of my kids’ underwear from their inside out pants in the laundry room.

Feel better now about all those mis-matched socks and that time you shrunk your favorite t-shirt? Yeah, me neither.
