Skip to comments.Question about men and .... SOCKS
Posted on 10/17/2008 10:18:01 AM PDT by PERKY2004
My wonderful DH and I have been married 5.5 years. He is currently deployed to Iraq, so I decided to take inventory and straighten out his dresser drawers, plus the drawers in the closet. (With his blessing and permission, mind you.)
He has socks in 4 different drawers. He has over 80 pairs of socks. Most of his socks are black (work) or white (non-work), with a very few pair of other colors.
Ummm.... is this normal? Socks in 4 different drawers? Over 80 pairs? Or am I just married to a guy who loves his socks?
What is a DH?
Run, do not walk.
Covered in my text, above. Delusional hallucination.
That would be a “Dear/Darling Husband”. You see this in common usage on many womens forums. Also DD (daughter) and DS (son). My wife tells me this at least.:)
He probably bought only a few pairs of black and white socks. In a dark warm drawer, they breed.
btw, what the heck was the "free laz" tags about?
You help is desperately needed on this thread
That is odd.
My suggestion- make them into puppets or monkeys.
They got tired of paying for their laz.
I do have alot of socks (many not even worn in the last year or two) and alot of shoes too, I like to rotate them.
Designated Hitter - he bats for the husband while he’s away. ;)
LOL! I think many men find socks hard to throw out. The socks may not be exactly suitable for wearing, but on the other hand, they don’t have gaping holes, and thrifty men are reluctant to throw the socks out until they are verifiably useless. Plus, if he travels, he probably buys new ones, brings them home, and just adds them to his collection.
Would he object if you helped him sort through them and maybe got rid of the worn ones?
What I’d like to know is where are the mates to the socks my husband has. Seems every time I wash those socks, I’m able to match up less and less of them.
However, men never through away socks. They're still good. You can wear them.
Wait 'til you see what's in the back of the underwear drawer.
(Or as my father would say, "The drawers fulla drawers.")
I knew a single guy that got tired of cleaning his house, washing dishes, etc.
He threw out every dish expect one, all of his silverware except one set, all of his chairs except two (a kitchen chair and an easy chair), etc. Don’t know about the socks!
My answer would be 20. Actually maybe just 7 darks, 7 whites. But a few spares of each would be good. Give them to the Goodwill NOW. He’ll never miss them.
Count your blessings it’s only a dresser and some socks. My sweetie has a pole barn out in the country that makes Ali Baba’s cave look like my kitchen junk drawer.
If this collecting/hoarding escalates, be prepared for anything! :)
If most of them are old and worn out it’s pretty normal. We have a hard time throwing out articles of clothing that still have a few threads left. If they’re all in good condition then he is very strange. Most guys have one weeks worth of socks maybe two at the most.
