My boss hires high schools kids to do the janitor work in the store. During the time I've been there, we have had three of them. They eventually either get fired, or promoted to cashier and replaced by the next. Our latest, is a kid named Ben. Of the kids the boss has hired, Ben is the best. He is smart, a hard worker and a bit of a smart ass. He has also become my little buddy and loves to give me a hard time. Last week he came in on Wednesday and told me that he noticed that I was wearing the same shirt that I wore on Tuesday. He said that he found that odd. I told him that I was worried about his attention to my apparel, but I explained my labor saving shirt strategy to him. I work two days in a row, then I'm off. Since I work inside and wear a stupid red vest at work, I see no need to put on a clean shirt everyday. So, I wear the same shirt Tuesday and Wednesday, then I wear a different one Friday and Saturday. That's two shirts a week that I don't have to wash and dry. Simple. He still thinks it's odd, but it's a kid thing. He'll appreciate the Merle Wayne Sneed wisdom one day, maybe when his mom stops doing his laundry. Things in this blog represented to be fact, may or may not actually be true. The writer is frequently wrong, sometimes just full of it, but always judgmental and cranky

Mom gets to stop doing her son's laundry one day!?!? Really? I CAN'T WAIT! haha!

Tell him you're being "green" by not overwashing your shirts. Or that you're being "European."

It's good to have someone around to give you a hard time, Merle.

Sometimes my kids only wear their clothes for 5 minutes before trying to put them in the wash. It must be a generational thing.

I remember washing my clothes every time I wore them when I was a teenager, and my mom warned me it would destroy the clothes. Sure enough, it did. Learned my lesson!

I have started to notice the offspring is much more particular about clean clothes these days than he used to be. Years of training down the drain!

I agree with the aggressive Sir William; this is a cool blog.

Hmmm, I hope you at least rinse the armpit area out.
