When I wash I always check the pockets especially if I have just grabbed a bunch of dirty laundry that isn't mine or I haven't worn in a while...never know whats in there and its better safe then sorry. Besides it's not that hard to just get into the routine of checking pockets...And to those who complain about tissues in pocket I say to you you have a choice 1 tissue before you put it in the wash or 5,000 pieces of tissue when you open the dryer at the end of the cycle.

Exactly, so check your own pockets before you take them off.

Sometimes I forget. And besides its easier just to do it all at once when I am doing the wash.

You forget, so it's someone else's responsibility? Why? Maybe they forget too.

If everyone else would just take responsibility for themselves--in the small as well as the big things--no one else would have to follow behind them, right? Yeah yeah, in a perfect world....

I love this thread. My husband and I always agrue about this!

I think it's each person's repsonsibility to take the stuff out of thier pockets befoire they go into a hamper or dirty laundry basket. I've ruined a lot of our stuff with lip gloss... but he's ruined some stuff too. Of course when HE leaves something in his pockets I should have checked the pockets before doing laundry but if it's my lip gloss he put in the wash/dryer, it's also my responsibility.

It's not someone else's responsibility...it's my responsibility (at least that is how I see it). It's only someone else's responsibility if they are doing my laundry at which point I would not complain because they are doing my laundry.

However for the purposes of this argument, when I am doing the wash and I don't check the pockets it's my fault if something gets destroyed as I was the person who put the jeans in the washer from the hamper.

You are in charge of your own pockets from cradle to grave.

Being single, I would wager to say I am in charge of/responsible for close to 100% of everything in my life.

Hey OP, print out this thread, with the staggering poll results at the top and tell her that the world sides with her in this particular instance and even extends its deepest thanks for doing your laundry for you.

Make sure you're on your knees at the same time, it might help.
Oh, and then go buy another remote!

It's a rule in our house that you find what you keep if you don't take it out of your pockets before it goes in the laundry.
Lots of interesting finds. Lots of lunch monies, to boot!

i said, it's ok. don't worry.
then she went on about how i'm not careful and i don't care and etc. and i said well, since you brought it up, i think it's the responsibility of the person who's putting in the laundry to check everything again before putting them in. She said "i can't believe you're blaming me...etc." to which i said "i'm not. i don't care. it's not worth fighting over. we'll just disagree about who is at fault. it doesn't matter. not worth a fight. if you'd like, i'll do my cloths myself from now on."

sure enough, she got upset and we stopped talking.

OH I CAN'T WAAAAAIT UNTIL WE'RE MARRIED! (/END SARCASTIC STATEMENT)

Who is at fault?
who should be held responsible?
You've got a lot to learn, lol, don't get married til you do!

Oh, and you are wrong.
