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.

I make my hubby check his pockets. My mum also made my dad empty his pockets. If I can make sure my pockets are empty, so can he!

Nope, Just because you take time out of the day to do laundry for the family, doesn’t give them the right to be lazy about it… they can 'help’you emptying pockets…their clothes… I dont check pockets never have and I don’t ever plan on it…like I say to my kids and husband check your stuff cause its going in the wash…

I check my husband’s pockets because I will be damned if something of mine gets damaged because he left something in his pockets or damage my washer. Yes, it annoys me that I have to do it.

He can’t do his own laundry or take on household duties like an adult?

I recheck just to be sure he didn’t miss anything.

Why wouldn’t you empty out your pockets before you put your pants in the dirty laundry anyways lol tell him to empty his pockets, have ruined things, or you’re not gonna do his laundry at all :woman_shrugging:t2:

Yes!!! Ticks me off so bad when I throw everything in the dryer and leave the room just to hear 10 coins bouncing around :face_with_symbols_over_mouth:

I check pockets and if I find money its mom tax. Granted its probably from my pockets already anyway :joy: If I find ear buds or tools or whatever else in the pockets I have a jar I keep things in in the laundry room till someone whines about where it is.

He can do his own laundry if hes going to whine. I have 6 kids, I have way too much shit to do and worrying about his pockets isn’t 1 of those things.

I have alot going on but It still doesn’t hurt to double check… could be something important that was accidentally left in a pocket.

I don’t clean out pockets either. :woman_shrugging:t2: Shouldn’t have put them in the dirty laundry with stuff in the pockets.

He used to check his pockets… sometimes and other times i washed them with money inside.Happens

I tell my husband to take the stuff out of his pockets because I am not checking them, period! If something gets ruined, it’s on him.
