Do His Socks Make You Angry?

Socks, socks, socksDo His Socks Make You Angry?

What makes you angry?  Does it really matter?


I love to talk about my husband's socks.  He

wears white cotton socks to his jobs as a

contractor and he likes to take them off

around the bedroom, and sometimes inside

the front door.  


These socks have a life of their own.  I have

no idea why, but they seem to sit up like

something is inhabiting them even

when they are clearly not on his feet.


I can't tell you why he doesn't just put them

in the laundry bin with everything else. 

(Funnily enough, I haven't asked.)


I also don't know if he actually wears them another time.

Truthfully, it probably wouldn't matter because white

socks worn on a construction site are only truly white

once, the first time they're worn.


Now I could get on my high horse and demand that he

put his socks in the laundry bin.  Or make sarcastic 

comments about why he doesn't.


But what would that accomplish?  Is it worth getting upset

about or even mentioning?


Before I make such  a comment, I look at what would be

created for our relationship overall.  My husband hates

to be controlled.  He's said several times that he would

have been long gone if I'd ever attempted such a thing.


And like most of us he hates to be told what to do.

(Don't you?)


So I either step over the lively socks or pick them up



He doesn't get nagged.  I don't waste my time complaining.

Peace reigns in our household.


And to tell the truth, I have been known to leave a few

shoes around the place myself.

  • Thanks for sharing! It is amazing how you took something as simple as socks to paint a much bigger picture. It’s so simple to get caught up in minutiae and it takes a change of mindset to focus on what really matters.
