I don't mind ironing, which is lucky as after my wife had an accident and ended up having her right wrist fused around 10 years ago I have to do all of it around here.
Mate of mine finds it really relaxing. He works away during the week, and when home likes to spend Saturday morning doing some ironing and watching sport. If there is no ironing to do he cannot fully relax that weekend.
Some men are born mediocre, some men achieve mediocrity, and some men have mediocrity thrust upon them.
m a man of few needs, but ever since I started working, I outsourced housekeeping and laundry.
General housework I don't mind, use it as a break to think away from the keyboard with one very conscious exception: ironing.
Since I started working for myself anything that needed ironing was outed to the Sallies (including a few shirts still in the wrappers).
Here in the states we have an absolute miracle. It's called "Permanent Press".
And damn, it goes through the wash and dry and is ready to wear! Even when the press finally starts to wear out, compared to sending the clothes out for ironing you've saved enough for a big new monitor, extra DRAM, even enough to buy a few more shirts.
I intended the Soapbox - forgot to change screens.
If anyone can move it to where it belongs it would be nice.
AND, come to think of it - would that not be a decent capability for a user for their own posts (or is it already there and I don't know about it).
And all those taxes don't even give you free healthcare or education
I guess those are the perks of having a president who cares more about his ego than his people.
At least he runs the country like his businesses, into the ground with no one on his mind but himself.
So anyway, this is kind of Soapbox material so I'll leave it at that.
These happen once in a while - do you agree that the OP should be able to fix their own post's location (even if limited to Lounge->Soapbox) ? I put in bugs and suggestion - there could be good reasons it's not available even with the limited scope.
I could delete the thread but it's remained pretty civil, so far; also, there are enough posts that I don't want to blow them away if there's an option.
And all those taxes don't even give you free healthcare or education Big Grin |
Sander you tend to have some wit about you, so I'll give you the benefit of the doubt, and I'm hoping you are being sarcastic. I'll grant you intelligence so please identify free healthcare or education ANYWHERE on this planet.
