Chuckle of the Day – Hanger Hoarder

by Sherry Riter in Chuckle

There’s always laundry to wash…

Laundry to dry…

Laundry to fold…

And laundry to put on hangers.

But I can’t ever find those lovely curved metal devices.

I might have a hanger monster living with me.

So I search high and low.

I tear my closet apart.

I search between the hangers of my husband’s hanging clothes in the closet.

Finally, without success, I decide to check my daughter’s room.

Oh yeah, remind me next time to just look in there first.

Apparently, she’s a hanger hoarder.


Teenagers. Doesn’t that just explain it all?

I thought my household was the only one that had tons of laundry always being done (and there is only 3 of us). I use to have the same problem with hangers until I threatened my husband that if he didn't put all of his empty hangers at the front of his hanging clothes, he would have to start putting away all of his clothes. LOL! Now that you've found where your hanger stash is is, I hope laundry day is much easier. 🙂

My boys(2 teens) are supreme masters of ripping their clothes off of our hangers and breaking them. Not my favorite trick of theirs!
Thank, Thank, Thank you for telling me my blog URL didn't show up in Blog Frog. I am still rather new to blogging and I have never had it set right. I emailed Blog Frog and they showed me how to fix it. That should make a huge difference in my blog. No one could get my blog in their sidebar, now it shows up!
Have a great weekend!

ha, you should alert TLC, and they could do a show about this 🙂

That is too funny! I would love to hear the explanation behind hoarding them. 🙂
Laundry is evil!

My 7 y/o does the same thing with her hangers as Sherry's two teen-age boys. Those hangers are not cheap!

Fortunately, my husband is better at hanging his clothes up than most and I for one am grateful that he finally figured it out.

Now, add in the fact that I have my father here and I have to do his laundry too, which, thank goodness is only a pair of jeans, two shirts and shorts. Plus his bedsheets and pillow case. So…

Oh well, I suppose it could be worse to not have a large capacity washer and dryer in my home…I used to have to go to the laundromat and do 4 – 6 loads in one of those commercial washers. Thank you honey for finally fixing my washer at home!
