Something Has To Be Done

Does anyone else find piles of dirty socks in their living room?

This is what I come across on a daily/weekly basis.


That is our living room coffee table.

And below it, are about three pairs of dirty, stinky, husband socks.

Our house is small and our clothes hamper is maybe 25 feet away from the living room, yet here they lie.

On a consistent basis, I have to scoop socks from under the table and haul them back to the hamper because my lovely husband decides it's too far away to travel after a long day of work.

I find this habit disgusting. And of course, yes, I have talked to him about it. Has it changed? No.

I am not sure why he takes his socks off to begin with. It's like 30 degrees outside and we keep our house luke warm. Wouldn't you want to keep your socks on? Or at the very least go get some new socks?

And lastly, why, if you are going back to the computer room or our bedroom, wouldn't you take that pile of socks with you?

In my quest to find someone else with a "sock" debacle, I came across this blog and fell in love. I am attaching a post that has me breathing a sigh of relief that I am not the only one.

One of these days my husband is going to wake up covered in his own stinky sock pile. I don't know when this is going to happen, but something has to be done.

  2. I have this problem too!! Who takes their socks off in the living room anyway? I always "hope" that when we have a bigger house those socks will stay upstairs. Doubtful ;)

  5. This is, by far, my favorite post. I too, have an issue with grimmy CLOTHES (not just socks) laying around my tiny house. Will you start a support group, Alissa?

    I do agree with you Mike... please don't start pooping on the floor...

  6. Mandy leaves here socks all around the house in random places, and always just one. Never a pair. I just leave them to see how long before she will pick them up. The answer is never. Sometimes they are clean too, which I do not understand at all. haha

  7. Philip.. that is just not true! It usually happens when we are folding laundry in the living room and a straggler gets left behind!

  8. I have this problem too. But it is also clothes left on the dining room table, coats draped over the chairs.
