So something I have always took notice of is how people fold their towels. I don’t know why, but some people always flip out when you offer to fold their towels. Like when you are in a relationship and you just moved in and start doing your towels with their towels. Also known as “community towels” “our towels” and “Don’t fold the towels the wrong way or you are dead”!. OK, maybe not that last part.
I had this roommate in college and he had this clever way of putting things. He would say “Have you put any more thought into what you are going to do with all of these boxes?”. God he made me laugh. But then he had his things and he got serious when it came to them. “The bread…is my bread. You don’t see the bread. The bread is not there.” I was that way with my Coca-Cola.
“Have you put any more thought into what you are going to do with all of these boxes?”.
So back to the towels. I fold towels like this:
- Hold both ends with both hands and then fold in the middle.
- Repeat 3 times.
It’s that simple. I was just taught to do it that way by my parents. Now my girlfriend holds her towels long ways (full length of her body) and then folds them in half and then still long ways, folds left to right and then top to bottom. I found that after a few times of folding with her, I started folding my towels like that. No I am changed for life, probably.
I guess nothing is safe from OCD people. It doesn’t matter if it is bread, boxes or towels. So how do you fold towels? Ready….GO!
