    Wait until you reach parenthood yourself, Luann.

    Only time I wash something separately is if something like oil or poison oak is on it.

    My mother was a lot older than me when she was my age… and she said the same things I now do. Oh my!

    when I went home for a visit, brought some laundry to wash. I also did whatever else I can fit from the others in there. My bro on the other hand doesn’t… but at least he’s not washing clothes by singles!

    Oh, I’ve seen this one all too often. Well, they don’t have me around, now. I wonder how they like paying thier own way?

    My teenaged daughter would have more laundry than my husband and I put together. I put my foot down and told her I wouldn’t wash it anymore. She said, “Fine I’ll do it myself.” I thought that would cut down on it but instead she stubbornly continued to change 2 or 3 times a day because “after all I’m doing my own laundry.” Then I started “running out” of quarters but all she did was complain about me not having quarters. Stubborn!Mark Twain said that adolescence was the stage your children go through so you won’t miss them when they grow up and leave. So true!

    It’s inconceivable to me that a 16 year old wouldn’t already be regularly doing laundry — everybody’s laundry — as well as other chores! Has the world really changed so much since I was that age?!?

    I did other chores for my parents when I was 16, but laundry was never one of them. She would have me fold the laundry after it was done, but laundry was her job. And I don’t think she wanted us to do it.

    Mom never explains to daughter why it’s a bad idea to only launder one shirt per load.

    Is this Yogi Berra? Love it!

    There’s also the communication thing to consider here….

    1:Luann thinks that what she’s doing is adequate enough, but hasn’t learned the value of what Nancy is trying to convey…
    2:Nancy hadn’t figured out an effective way of seeing what Luann was thinking, or has maybe even forgotten what goes on in someone like Luann’s head at that stage (believe it or not, sometimes we CAN forget what it’s like @ certain stages of life, and maybe in our OWN growing and maturing, we have unlearned what it’s like in a teenager’s head), enough to maybe not find ways to communicate it in a way they can pick up on (no pun intended).
    And so, due to the ongoing communications learning curve/generation gap combined, you have both Luann and Nancy just chalking it up to “Mom” being “Mom” (translated: argh!) and "Daughters being Daughters (translated: ugh!) as illustrated in panel 3….
