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?
