I wrote, I couldn't afford all the shirts my ex-wife ruined just because she wouldn't check everyone's pockets.

To which you replied,
Odd, one would think one would learn to check one's pockets before putting one's shirts in the laundry.

But that's just moi.

Certainly not my ex. And those crayons certainly weren't in MY pockets! (She blamed the kids, but I suspect she was the culprit.)

BTW, for the longest when I was doing laundry, I'd do MINE separately. That way none my work clothes would get ruined.
