[–]AssCalloway 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Yeah what's the problem sheesh

[–]Blood_ForTheBloodGod 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I can’t do this I have to have something underneath me. I just think about sweating into my mattress and I can’t sleep

"Bed clothes"

[–]SwayingTwig 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Come to check I wasn't a weird one for thinking it's weird to call them that.. (UK human here btw)

[–]ExistentialYurt[S] 60 points61 points  (9 children)

What do you call them?

[–]turdpie3214 205 points206 points  (6 children)

bed Sheets?

[–]ExistentialYurt[S] 80 points81 points  (5 children)

Its a good answer but its not right. Back to Mr Chips.

[–]Biscuitman82 29 points30 points  (4 children)

Dammit, if I wasn't a broke teenager I'd give you a gold, take an upvote then.

[–]andyswanson 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Gold is $4.

[–]sexyjpg 11 points12 points  (0 children)

and teenagers are broke, whether it's because of college or they're not old enough to work

[–]ZeroTolerrance 6 points7 points  (0 children)

We ain't buying gold we got gold at home

[–]densititify 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sleep inside the duvet cover, Voiola! sleeping bag

[–]ExistentialYurt[S] 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Damn, too late, that’s ingenious 🤔

[–]joeciocci 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It's happened to me far too many times..feel your plight.

Plus I'm just heading to the pub and remembered I haven't put the sheets back on, so thanks!

[–]fuzzynyanko 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hm... might have to invest in another duvet cover.

I actually didn't know what they were for and bought one, thinking it was fancy top sheets. I later got a comforter that was bare, and THEN found out what they are for

[–]StrawberryShartCake_ 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Getting ready for bed and excited to grab the warm sheets and realizing you forgot to turn on the dryer :(

[–]TestOfSanity 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Not as bad as putting them in the washer, and returning home at 1am to realize you never put them in the dryer.

[–]awoelt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think I am going to cry

[–]LowKey_xX 18 points19 points  (4 children)

Nope wakeing up the next morning rolled up in a blanket like a burrito because you was to lazy to make the bed and your alone is heartbreaking

[–]WhatD0thLife 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Call an ambulance this user is having a stroke.

[–]Dougish123 7 points8 points  (2 children)

What the hell are bed clothes?

[–]DJJohnson49 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Pajamas maybe?

[–]ExistentialYurt[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Have a guess.

[–]7thMonkey 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I took the sheets off my bed once and didn't replace them, proudly announcing "Yeah, suck it future me"

Future me was suuuuuper bummed when I got home.

[–]TractorDriver 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Many things make me angry and give despair in today's world.

But going to bed after 16 hours shift to the on-call room and finding that previous guy didn't change the bedding to fresh and properly stretched out - basically ready to drop and sleep, makes me genocidal ...

[–]sunburn95 2 points3 points  (0 children)

When I was still living at home I'd just finished a nearly 12hr stint of field work. Was lucky to stay awake for the 3am drive home.

Got back and my bed was completely stripped leaving me to dig around for everything and make my bed. Mum got mad at me being mad the next day since she "helped me" by doing that for me

[–]Slythathecleric 3 points4 points  (3 children)

This happened to me last night. Luckily, a few months ago I went on a cleaning/organizing kick and bagged up a few clean sets of sheets for guests. I just grabbed a large ziplock bag filled with two pillowcases and a fitted sheet and made my bed.

[–]ExistentialYurt[S] 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Oh yeah I’ve got clean stuff ready to go but still. I got half a fitted sheet on, now I’m lying here writing this, i wont even be pissed off if i fall asleep like this.

[–]hat-of-sky 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Remember, do the most awkward/difficult corner first, get it well under, so you can really pull on the easiest corner last. Otherwise it's going to pop off later.

[–]ExistentialYurt[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Thanks mum 🤗

[–]ladymiku 1 point2 points  (0 children)

me: [sleeps on a bare mattress and wraps two thick blankets on me]

[–]brad12172002 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sounds like a sleep on the couch night.

[–]Juan_Cocktoasten 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Even worse: They're your only set of sheets and they're still in the washer cuz you forgot to put them in the dryer. I've done this.

[–]krazyeyekilluh 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’ve done this many times, but never had the right word for it... heartbreaking is perfect!

[–]Ca1iforniaCat 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Or even getting in not so late, but tired.

[–]FattyMcFooFoo 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I feel this on a deep, deep level.

A couple months back I got insanely sick. Work was piling up to the ceiling and I couldn't muster the energy to even open my laptop. I got the consistent worst grades I've ever received that week--I'm talking 47% on a presentation that should have been a piece of cake--and I was entirely done with everything. I ran out of clean clothes about halfway through this hell and decided to be efficient with my washer cycle and throw my sheets and duvet cover and pillow cases and everything in there as well. Get back to the room a while later, toss my giant Santa sack of laundry on the floor, and leave to go try to do some work.

Four hours later I've written four sentences and it's midnight. I have an 8:30 class the next morning and I can hardly think I'm feeling so shit. I've got chills bad enough that I'm literally shivering under a blanket, and I wander into my room, only to find that giant fucking Santa bag of clean clothes and utter disappointment on my floor. I start rummaging through it, and about halfway through pulling the duvet cover out of the bag I just fucking lose it. I start cursing out my being sick, the fact that I have an 8:30 the next morning that I'm going to have 6 hours of sleep for, my laziness at not putting the sheets on earlier, everything. I'm normally not the sort to break down like that, and so my roommate is just looking at me from his bed with this expression of shock as I lose my shit for about five minutes.

That was basically the worst experience of the past few years for me.

[–]Mezotronix 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Stripping bed sheets? My mom does it for me when she's visiting every three months or so.

[–]ExistentialYurt[S] 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I can smell it from here 😄

[–]Mezotronix -1 points0 points  (1 child)

But really it doesn't

[–]wholesomeusername26 0 points1 point  (0 children)

To you because you're used to the horrible stench.

[–]jcpmojo 0 points1 point  (1 child)

This is a pet peeve of mine. The job of washing the sheets is not complete until you put new sheets on. Do not leave a job undone. My wife doesn't get it, either.

[–]ExistentialYurt[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

A lot of emotional responses here, mainly from people being angry at us for not replacing them straight away.

[–]stellacampus 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Wait...you don't have a Snuggie?

[–]ExistentialYurt[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Well, no, i mean... i dont think so, is that a euphemism for a body part?

[–]jmansbufny 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've done it so many times, and just say screw it... grab a blanket from another room and just sleep on a bare mattress

[–]Xelium23 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This goes straight in the empty paper roll department.

[–]Chrissylowlow 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But it wasn’t a bed. It was a lobster bed robber!

[–]FTC_Publik 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Fuck, thanks for reminding me about my laundry.

[–]Cam025 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Worse still is when you do remember to change them that day, but when you're out your evil cat decides it's the perfect place to relieve their bladder upon. Betrayal.

[–]greenSixx -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Jusy a reminder to stop being lazy and or to plan better.

One of the many reminders in mybearly 20s that forced good habits of not being lazy thst help me as a parent.

[–]drakedragonflight -2 points-1 points  (3 children)

who calls bed clothes “sheets”?

[–]greenSixx 8 points9 points  (2 children)

All of the usa.

I hadnt heard the term bed clothes until this weak. And i am in my 30s.

[–]drakedragonflight 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]Dougish123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Week* ftfy

[–]SuicideForJesus -4 points-3 points  (1 child)

Watching pets get run over is heartbreaking.

This is just lazy.
