Ha, ha; if it is women's day surely we don't have to do the ironing on that day!!!!
It is the thing other people do when they have boring little lives and not enought to do. I am told you can spend a lot of time doing it but I haven't tried.
It's something I do once a year before going on holiday so I look smart. Other than that we buy clothes that dont need ironing
I've even heard of people that iron their teatowels, socks, pants, hankies. Definitely bored
Yes, I heard that but surely it is a lie? If you stretch things out on the washing line then they don't look too bad or is it just that now I am ancient and the eye sight has deteriorated I don't see the creases?
Wise decision Wolfie, I too buy things that don't need ironing although sometimes that is a lie and they do; they then lurk in the back of the wardrobe unworn!
I stretch things out, I use the tumble dryer. i even bribe people to do my ironing with a ash incentive. It's the bane of my life and cant understand people who do it for a job
I suppose if you were actually being paid to do it it wouldn't seem so bad.
I wouldn't do it even if you paid me!
(Oddly enough though when I used to make my own clothes an iron came in very handy for pressing seams, etc, but I never ever considered that as ironing! )
It's something my husband does.
"It's something my husband does."
Please can we swop?
@Arab Horse Otherwise he sounds a lot like yours so you'd only gain ironing.
I suppose that's better than nothing!
I sew and iron when needed although I am only allowed to use a travel iron, not my wife's supa-dupa model iron.
I am also house trained and certifiably insane ( according to my wife).
So how do you think the Mens' Day banner will look like? (probably have a sewn section saying "ironed by a lady" !
If you come here I will let you use my super dooper mega expensive iron (although I confess to having bought it in a closing down sale so less than half price), only used a VERY few times. I would also allow you to use the vacuum cleaner and various other fantastic toys all in "nearly new" condition despite having had them for some time. The insanity I can tolerate. Reminds me of the old saying "All the world's mad except thee and me and even thee's a little odd".
Neither myself or my missus do any ironing, we don't even own an ironing board*.
However, at the other end of the scale, I have a gay male contemporary who always used to iron every darned thing: socks, underwear, doilies, etc, included. I haven't seen him for years, but assume he still does all that. Shame we're now separated by over 200 miles, otherwise I'd take some of our kit round for him to iron.
*Yes, we're slobs, I know!
I have a gay male friend and he is very fussy about everything so I assume he irons everything. Total waste of a life; think of all the other interesting things you could be doing!
Ha ! Thank you @Arab Horse. Your offer is most tempting. Perhaps I need a mental fitness certificate to operate domestic devices (MFTODV) first. (I am sure for one nanny set of states, the Australian Government is working on such certification)
Why not grasp the nettle, um, iron handle and try ??
