doesnt your wifes daughter want to stay at home with you and help you fold clothes. lol
sounds like her mum wants to get rid of her maybe its the competition, you wife wants to be the only clothes folder in the household.
No, my wife's daughter does not want to stay home and help her mom fold the clothes, especially my clothes. I really don't blame her either, I just want her to be more independent, get a job and her own place. She is out of place here in this little town in Tennessee having been born and raised in St. Petersburg, Florida. It is the only area that she has ever known.

As for myself, I was not even born in the US and have lived in many locales. I am just going along with the ride here and want my wife to be happy. Seriously, I could live anywhere and have been all over the map. To me, the move from Florida to Tennessee is just another chapter in the adventure of life. I am an adventurer and try to take it all in stride. Another adventure waits just around the river bend. So far, it has been quite a ride and well worth the cost of admission.

I meant she was needed to help you fold yours, not her mums lol

(since you said you needed help)
You could pay her and that would be her job. Eventually shell earn enough money folding clothes to afford her own place..right?

A laundry mat is an excellent venue to connect with other singles. My wife suggested to her adult daughter who is staying with us to consider going there and possibly meet a nice single guy, hopefully eventually getting married and get her own place.
be careful, i don't walk in there singing and praising God with Joy😂😉☺️

Our new home has a new dishwasher and fridge but no washer and dryer. It will be a priority to purchase these two appliances. For a married couple endless trips to the local laundry mat are a hassle. During are initial visit to the laundry mat we did notice what appeared to me several single men though. Basically, guys suck at properly doing laundry. Folding is problematic too.
confess:
like folding clean clothes🥼👔👕

I was born in Landstuhl Germany. My dad was stationed there while in the Air Force. He brought my mom there from Detroit. My older brother was born there too. I lived there 9 months and went to Detroit when my when Dad was discharged.

It was the lack of economic opportunity that led to the demise of Detroit and this was the result of a radical liberal Democratic environment.

Excessive government regulation forced the auto makers to seek a more feasible alternative to produce the cars at a profit and not a loss. No profits for corporations equates to no jobs to support the family and community at large. With the decline of the automotive industry in Detroit a huge portion of the population base was forced to relocate in search of a brighter future. Detroit is a classic case study of socialism and the erosive effect is has on society.

Excessive government regulations and high corporate income tax hinder innovation. Most of the auto jobs were outsourced to Mexico and South Korea. It was wages of these relatively good paying auto jobs that contributed to job creation in the community in other areas. Excessive regulation and high corporate taxes equates to poverty.

what was the regulation that changed everything? Like give an example of the excessive regulation.
dont you have GST in america. Couldnt they just tax the luxury cars being sold?

in nz theres more tax on things like cigarettes. The more cigarettes you buy, the more tax you pay.
