Yup. It's something I already knew.

And I still would have done everything possble to get out of the military.

Last one out of bed, makes the bed. I think I would puke if I saw a messy bed.

Yeah, ok, so how old are you?

Your initial question definitely makes sense if you are no older than 15 years.

Meh, our bed doesn't get made every day and I really couldn't care less. I won't waste valuable sleeping time in the morning, and the room is not a sanctuary for me. It is so tiny and frustrating at times, that making the bed is not going to make it more inviting. It is what it is and as much as I'd like to, I can't knock down the walls and make it bigger.

I guess I don't understand people who can't get to sleep unless the bed is made. If the covers are really messed up I will straighten and smooth them out before I get in, but it's a bed for crying out loud. I get in and fall asleep. I agree with others about the excessive decorative pillows. They are completely unnecessary and stress me out WAY more than an unmade bed does.

Now, I will say I was more particular about it in the apartment I had before I moved up here. I loved the place, it was big and bright and airy with nine foot ceilings. I had a nice big bed with pretty bedding, so I made it more often.

Still, I think it's a little ridiculous and rude to make assumptions about people just because they don't make their bed every day.

I'm 34 and I've been house proud since I was about 18.
I like my environment to be nice.

People who don't make their beds (especially those living with partners) are just simply lazy or don't care much about cleanliness, period. There's nothing ridiculous about this statement. You are who you are. Just accept that and move on.

Sorry you aren't enjoying your current living quarters - been there, done that - hated it

Your previous apt does sound nice and inviting, too bad you aren't still in it!

Umm...No.

Sorry but I whole heartily disagree.

My house is nearly spotless. 2 dishes in the sink I just made, vaccumed, my surfaces are wiped down and nice smelling, windows are clean, clothes are mostly put away.

My bed? Don't care, I sleep in it every night just fine whether it's made or not. No one looks at my bed except for me, and a made bed simply doesn't make me want to get in it any more when I'm tired from the day.

Perfectly fine. Doesn't change my opinion though.

It's annoying at times, but the positives far outweigh the negatives. I love where we live, and we have space and privacy to have our animals and be left alone, which is really what I want most out of life. It's about priorities, I guess!

While I did love that apartment and miss it, it was a good tradeoff for the mister.
