    Default Making the Bed

    So my wife and I were having this debate the other day regarding whether or not most people make the bed. I contend that the majority of people residing within our Wester Civilization either make the bed in the morning, or, they make it after arriving home from work. This belief of mine is based on my general observations and the belief that there are a lot of SJs out there dominating the landscape and they definitely make the bed - remember, you only need one SJ out of two in a relationship and then the bed is made. My wife believes this is incorrect because . . . well, because her "intuition" tells her it's so (ie. zero evidence).

    So, my fellow forumites, help me win yet another debate with my wife by supporting my position either via a poll vote or an observational post.

    Thanks in advance. You have done the right thing.

    Most people never make the bed.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    Most people I know from home make thier bed in the morning after they get up for the day- most people I know from school never make thier bed.

    I simply don't move enough when I sleep to really UNMAKE my bed, so I see no use to put forth any effort.

    I guess it depends on your age and such *shrug*

    The only way our bed gets made is if we are going to bed. I can't call that making the bed.

    We don't make the bed, so I voted no. I have no idea about anyone else.

    How can you guys say "never"? I know that people make the bed when they - eventually, in the case of the members above - finish cleaning the bedding.

    Likewise, and in the very least, you straighten it after you get in during the evening.

    To suggest otherwise is a lie, to be quite frank.

    I call that "making the bed." And since this is based on my definition . . . thanks for your support.

    I don't think most make the bed. Maybe 20 years ago. I think most people see it as pretty pointless, unless they've got one of those showroom bedrooms with no evidence of someone living there/sleeping there.
