Re: Can AO wife's iron

She does the most of it, but I still do some, but did more, or most, at one time, because I retired before her.: I don't mind a spot of ironing, and do shirts self, and trousers always. Have a Go Joe.:

She always struggles a bit with trouser creases, and open neck shirt collar press backs: So did her mum, but they are both pretty good cooks, so they get excused by this fact.:

Re: Can AO wife's iron

To start with - I iron my own shirts for work, suits I get dry cleaned.
I am absolutely fed up with ironing, so (and how topical is this thread?!?!?) this afternoon I rang and left a message with an ironing service with a view to get them to iron my shirts.
Later this evening, when Mrs snotgobbler turns up home from work I mention that we may get a call regarding a price for ironing my shirts on a weekly basis.................
........................to which, Mrs Snotgobbler says 'dont pay someone else to do it, I will'
'For nothing'? isay
'No, if you were going to pay them, then you can pay me'


I have refused to commit myself, (its a man thing), I'm progressing along a competitive tender route, whoever is cheapest will get the contract.

That's the idea - just give it to any woman you see passing your house - and tell her to get on with it

The wife does most of the ironing as I simply can't. Many people (i.e., Sue, my previous girlfriends, people who have seen me iron) think its a case of me not really trying, however, I point out that some pople can't spell, some popel aren't good at maths, and I can't iron
