As a guy who grew up being raised by a mother who utterly spoiled him, who made sure that he never had to clean a single day of his life while growing up, I have come to the conclusion that as an adult I am fundamentally broken. It’s true. Shamefully, I am terrible with cleaning my own home as well as being terrible at doing my own laundry. While I am proud of the fact that I can actually fold my own clothes, I usually have to resort to taking my clothing to a dry cleaner in Paterson NJ if I want to have clean clothes for the week.
I suppose it’s not so bad taking your clothes to a dry cleaners. Plenty of other people do it! I wonder if they’re like me in that they’re just not very good at cleaning their own clothes. Maybe they don’t have a washer and dryer – I do, despite the fact that I almost never utilize either of them. I can totally clean my own underwear and socks, though, which is easy enough but to try and do an entire load of laundry on my own is possibly the most difficult thing you could ask me to do.
This is how I’m broken. I’m a guy who is 30 years old and is incapable of doing my own laundry. I even have a house cleaner come once a week to help spruce up the place by taking care of the hard work – sweeping and mopping generally. I loathe cleaning, I’ll admit it! There is just something about knowing that I am practically plunging my hands into microbial environments that are teeming with billions of bacteria. No sir, I do not want anything to do with that and as long as I can avoid it, I’m a happy camper.
