Just me or is this..yuck?

I am usually the first in the kitchen in the morning. So yeah, this morning I went in there and my MIL's dirty socks were on the kitchen counter. Why?? I took them off and whipped out the anti-bacterial spray. LOL What would you have done?

  • I would've sat them by her plate at breakfast. "Why are there socks by your plate? Well, I was wondering the same when I found them on the kitchen counter, but then I assumed that you must have wanted them with your breakfast if you left them on the counter."

    Heck yea that's gross! I would have done the same. If she's living with you, I'd ask her nicely not to leave dirty socks in inappropriate places. If you're living with her, just keep the antibacterial spray handy! lol

  • I would have thrown them in the trash and then when he asked about his socks I would say gee, I wonder where they are. Maybe he will learn that the kitchen is not the most appropriate place for dirty socks. I would be having a cow about that. My husband was bad about taking his clothes and leaving them thrown on the floor, so I fixed his butt. I started to toss them and one day he asked for his Adidas shorts and I said, well maybe next time they will learn to walk to the hamper and not the floor. I told him since they were on the floor and I was cleaning up I thought they were trash and trashed them. So, now he thinks twice.
