Does your Husband ever leave his socks balled up next to the bed (or his chair, or in the bathroom, or wherever it happens to be that he's removed them?)
I often find my Husband sitting on his side of the bed reading, with a pair of balled up socks on the floor nearby.
"I'll say: "Are you planning on wearing these again?"
And I'll get a somewhat sheepish look back:
"No." (By "No", he actually meant, "well, yes, so I don't have to look for clean ones in the morning." Because, you know, socks can air out, right? It's better for the environment!)
So, I pick up the sock balls and put them in the hamper (which is approximately two feet away).
Rule of thumb: When you own your own washer and dryer (and you have someone else doing the laundry for you): the life expectancy of sock wearing equals one day.
