    I found my 10 yr old son did the same thing but he just put it on the floor. I promptly taught him how to wash, dry and fold his own laundry and never wasted my time with it again. His wife is very happy he knows how to do laundry. :)

    As soon as Calvin’s mother gave Calvin his clean laundry and asked to put it away, he stuffed it into his dresser drawers.

    Sometimes Opel would like to put Earl away.

    I would have " lovingly" put it away myself… Opal must not have told Earl, exactly, where she wanted it put ;)

    I’d second that

    Opal will not ask him again to put away the laundry. There’s method to his madness!

    I’ve never seen the big issue with laundry. You pop it into one machine and then another the other…fold it and put it away. My wife makes a big issue of laundry. When I am home alone, I can do all my laundry in one day and it only takes a few minute of my time that day. The wife has those machines working 7 days a week.

    I love it. This is one of the tricks to wife train. Sure give more time for the golf course

    treesareus – I imagine you only do your own laundry. Your wife does the towels, the sheets and pillowcases, the bath mats, and any other stray items that need washing.

    I’m 38 I do my own laundry but don’t ask me to put them away I’ll just toss them on my bed or dump them on top of my dresser drawer.

    It’s pretty clear that laundry isn’t Earl’s favorite chore. If she wants/expects help, there are better ways to get it — incentives!

    @just sayin

    Or maybe “lovingly” ask for help? :)

    Sounds like a lot of you live vicariously through Opal. Stop and look at how much you try to CONTROL another person by your actions, as Opal does with Earl.
    If Earl fails to do what Opal wants, she gets frustrated and unhappy and angry. Earl, meanwhile, remains happy with a minimum of effort; a minimum of need, and zero need to control.

    Personally, I would leave his clothes under the bed if that is where he wants them.
