  1. I tried that bed making tip. Results were mixed at best (but comical).

    Chronic lateness is frustrating. It is essentially telling the person ” I think my time is more important than yours”. (Which, I guess was point #1 in the article). LIFEHACK: Buy a watch, plan. DONE.

    I felt like the “why I stopped asking my husband to help me out” was reallllyyy splitting hairs. Either I’m not linguistically advanced enough or I just dont’ think through things that much to have even considered that.

    • I think the “results were mixed” only because you were joking around when you did it. I don’t necessarily follow that exact process, but I do generally try to straighten the bedding before I get out of bed so that it’s a LOT easier to make once I’m out of it.

      Totally agree on the chronic lateness and the semantics of the asking your husband to help. The second one is way too feminist for me, but I thought it was an interesting perspective!
