A Story: The Backwards Laundry Switch

I asked my 11 year old son to switch his laundry a little while ago and just realized that he didn’t bring the clothes that were in the dryer, upstairs.  I asked him what he did with the dry clothes and he said he put them back in the washing machine.  I asked him why he did that and he said “Mom, they were in the dryer for like a week”.  “Huh?”, I said.  He said “Mom, you always tell me to re-wash clothes if we left them in the washing machine over night because they’ll smell”.   I couldn’t get on to him after saying that.  I just couldn’t.   I didn’t know what to say.
He was either seriously not thinking about the difference between clothes being left in a washing machine for a few days and clothes being left in a dryer for a few days or he was being really lazy.  Either way, I laughed it off because it was actually pretty funny and I’m sure he won’t do it again.  Or will he?
