@werehatrack She was taking them out of the laundry basket and putting them in the washer. Haven’t asked her but assume she would touch them to put them in the dryer after the “sanitize” cycle on the washer.
I married my wife in 1981. I bought her this exact W&D combo a week before the corona craziness, so even fuzzy I can tell you that is the washer. Over the years my wife who is 4’11" has had around 10 different types of those grabbers to reach top shelf grocery’s and clothes closet shelfs. Approaching 70yrs. our bodies aren’t quite as limber as they were on say our wedding night. Constantly bending over to get ANY laundry from the basket is a challenge. Instead of saying " take your stuff to the Chinese laundry I’m not doing it anymore" she finds the tools to help her continue do do it the way he likes. This picture says a lot and shows just how much she loves that man still 50 years later. …like I know mine loves me
I can’t stop laughing!!! I’m so getting a grabber for the Englishman’s underwear though it will probably only be funny to me as he’s never actually in there. And then my kids will find it and probably begin doing nefarious things with it so nevermind!
@Kyeh@phendrick We tried that. Since our house backs up to the 12th tee, there was a ball washer right outside our back door until Covid hit and it was taken away. Now she has to wash my balls by hand.
@bryane@ShotgunX As an older millennial myself, being married has been a huge financial positive so far, though my wife and I are on the same page financially.
For the first several years of our marriage we were able to live in a tiny apartment. Small for a married couple, but way too small for roommates. This saved on rent and utilities.
That savings, combined with two incomes, meant we could get a reasonable down-payment for a house sooner.
Two people saving for retirement means we can save twice as much in tax-advantaged accounts.
Kids are crazy expensive, though. And no, pets aren’t children.
