    I would just like my underwear drawer to be immaculate. What a dream; to have row after row of pretty undergarments, so alike in shape and colour as to create a unified theme. Unfortunately I'm a lazy cheapskate, so I'll keep my creases and mismatched underthings thrown haphazardly in the drawers (as in the furniture that holds them)
    Are you sure you're not an SJ?

    If a girl would be turned off because my boxers are creased, I'm with the wrong girl. Thankfully, that's not the case.

    Good point, she would probably scream and empty a can of pepper spray on you. I know I would.
    Not that ironing your boxers would change anything..
    I don't wanna!

    i remember for like, maybe half a school year back in middle school i had this obsession w/ keeping everything ironed. i went to a private catholic school so we had uniforms btw. i also remember looking at all the other kids and thinking how crude they were for not ironing their shirts. since that little phase i can probably count on one hand the times i've plugged in an iron.

    nowadays i couldn't care less, and i frequently wear my dress shirts all crinkly... i've convinced myself the crinkly look is "in" and "fashionable".

    Hey, I might like the idea, but never act on it. I like observing neat, organised and pretty things because they are so fundamentally different to how I am. I can imitate neatness, but never truly achieve it :p

    I have had obsessive phases with neatness as well...when I have lots of time and little else in my life. Now I just can't be bothered, I don't even do the crinkled look - slowly my wardrobe has become mostly wrinkle-resistant wash and wear. I like the idea of the crinkly look on a dress shirt - and now I wanna see it

    The rare times that I iron, I'm pretty obsessive about it and I do have a system for it, but lately, the only time I do it is when I'm sewing or I'm preparing to wear medieval garb. I love the way the linen blend I use looks and feels but there's no getting away with not ironing it.

    And I have been quite able to tolerate my husband in his non-ironed briefs.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

Its just a mess, if my house was like that, I'd die. I'd not want anyone to come or see it. But he doesn't care. And his wife's even worse, she only knows how to look pretty. I even said to her, don't you think you should use newspaper and vinegar on the windows to clean them properly. And she started taking the piss out of me, saying its only a window. She just carries on using a wet cloth on the window, and then I was watching her, and she used the same cloth on the table. And its not just the cleaning aspect of it, theres too much clutter in the house also.

    Do you guys feel the same? or embarrassed by poor friends?
    We are brought up from early on to use logic.
    We easily forget the requirement for rationality is not universal.

    We are the majority here. But not there.
    We laugh.
    A matter of culture.

    Exactly my thought and I've never had to deal with that which is
    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    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.

    Now, this is over the top. Only XSTJs (especially ISTJs) iron underwear. Hell, I don't even iron outer clothes; underwear would absolutely never be ironed.
