As Caulfield from Frazz observed, properly folding a fitted sheet is “a lot of exasperating, time-consuming work that, even if you do get it just right, nobody will ever see in that form anyway.”
Isn’t the way you “fold” a fitted sheet is by rolling it up in a bedroll? :-)
Take them off the bed wash them and put them back on the bed no need to fold
Opal do you want help or not ? Tis only a sheet that should of not been purchased in the first place. Regular sheets are easier to use and don’t have corners for stuff to hide in ;-)
I hate those “ let’s talk about how you do things wrong even when you help me” conversations.
I never have trouble with fitted sheets. That wadded up little ball of cloth looks just fine to me.
Trying to fold sheets is so frustrating! My Mom does it perfectly in 30 seconds. It takes me five minutes and it still looks a mess!
Shut up, Opal. If he’s helping at all, he’s exceeded your expectations.
I stuff the entire sheet set into one of the matching pillowcases.
I’ve never had a problem folding fitted sheets once I learned the trick. Google it and watch a video.
I wonder if opal irons them also.
He said “Not Really”, Opal! Why antagonize him?
Hubby can fold four bath towels four different ways, and they still turn out the same dimensions, so they fit into the closet. He helps, and that’s all that counts.
Does Opal ever stop her condescending conversations to Earl? If she’s so anal about how he folds the laundry, then she needs to do it herself, MRS PERFECTIONIST! Why can’t she just RELAX and enjoy life? NAG NAG NAG…..
When you stretch it out there are no wrinkles… so why worry about folding it? Just wad it up like I do…
If Opal is so concerned about how fitted sheets are folded, she should do it herself instead of criticizing Earl. Those that don’t do…do NOT criticize those that do.
I can fold a fitted sheet and often mention this to my family. Very often. And they are sooooo unimpressed. I must mention it again.
Fitted sheets are the enemy! In the middle of the night, the corner pops off and the elastic attacks you.
I found the suppressed-rage-sit-on-it-to-get-rid-of-the-lumps method works best.
Amen, Earl! For those darned things, maybe rolling them like T-Shirts on a camping trip is best.
Fold it in half then roll it.
only women can fold fitted sheets
And good luck finding a sheet set that includes 2 flat sheets. It’s not even that easy to find flat sheets sold separately.
Of all things to talk about when you are enjoying a nice day sitting on the porch!
I sit upon a slitted sheet ;)
Laundry folding is one of the skills I still can impress my children with – especially when it comes to fitted sheets.
You don’t fold a fitted sheet – you just wad it up neatly.
Some just think outside the box. Earl thinks outside the corners.
There show be a law against fitted sheets.
Fold? Sheet?!? Good one!
It’s very interesting how Mr. Crane so frequently makes Opal the stereotypical nagging female villain and how it incites hateful comments toward her shrewish character…which is in reality being created by the mind of a man. I see what you’re doing there, Brian. ;-)
I just have one set of sheets, so when I wash them they go right on my bed, lol!
I can fold a fitted sheet, but the best thing to do is just put it back on the bed.
Such a ripping conversation.
I know how to fold a fitted sheet, really.
Please ignore Earl and tell us guys how to fold a fitted sheet. Please!
