Should my husband check his own pockets when I do laundry?

Am I crazy for thinking my husband needs to check his pockets for earbuds or other things not to be washed before he puts his clothes in the dirty laundry for me to wash? If I had to check every single pocket he has on top of the 3-4 loads of laundry every day and everything another chore along with a 6&7 yo and their distance learning, a 4month old going thru a sleep regression and teething, two old dogs that pee in the house because they either can’t make it outside in time or the need help to get up to go out and sometimes I’m stuck nursing, I think I might explode.

Maybe you could sit him down and explain you’re feeling just a little overwhelmed with it all.

Not only do I think he should check his own pockets. I think he should help with the laundry.

I’ve asked my boyfriend many…many…MANY times…to empty his pockets, to pick up his dirty xlothes, dont leave your dirty socks laying around, put the tras hash in the garbage (hence why there’s now 3 garbage cans in our room), and many other things…hes gotten maybe…1 thing of the long, long list of tasks I’ve asked him to help out with…

I’m starting to think it’s a man thing in most cases.

Okies my thoughts is … pick your battles , ask him to empty his pockets, if he doesn’t meh , wash as usual , any money you find is yours

My partner knows I don’t check pockets, I know he doesn’t check pockets. At the end of the day we’re both responsible for our own stuff

My husband has his own laundry basket for his clothes and is in charge of washing and putting them away. I don’t do his laundry for him.

I just check everything out of habit .

I don’t know…but whether I want him to check his pockets or not…it’s instinct for me to check pockets before tossing them in :woman_shrugging:t2:
