Picture this: you're a hardworking 24-year-old woman who's just moved in with her 37-year-old boyfriend. Things are going well, except for one tiny issue... the laundry. He has a mountain of clothes that you've been trying to tackle for weeks, but it's just too much. One day, you need to do your own laundry, so you take his clothes out of the dryer and put them on the bed without folding them. And that's when the drama begins... 😱🧺

Laundry War: Fold or Face the Wrath! 😤🧺

Our protagonist finds herself in a laundry war with her boyfriend after moving in together. She's been folding and hanging his clothes for weeks, but it's just too much to handle. One day, she decides to take matters into her own hands and removes his clothes from the dryer to make room for her own, without folding them. This leads to an explosive argument with her boyfriend, who claims she's not doing him any favors and that he'd never do that to her. She works full-time and does most of the cleaning and cooking, so she feels it's not fair for him to expect her to fold all his clothes or wait days for him to do it. Let's see what the internet thinks of this laundry standoff... 🕵️‍♀️💬

Age difference raises red flags. Don't enable his incompetence. 🙅🏼
