    Re: Is your bed made every day? (Poll)

    If it were just me, the bed would never need to be made because I don't move when I sleep. However, my wife makes me questions if a tornado went through our room at night with the way she destroys the sheets. Because of that, we usually have to make our bed, but we usually do it right before we go to bed.

    Re: Is your bed made every day? (Poll)

    I "make the bed" every day. Now most days this consists of just pulling up the comforter and doing nothing with any of the sheets, but I can't leave the house without at least that.

    Your wife is a tornado in bed, destroys the sheets and you usually do it right before you go to bed. Sounds like she's a keeper.

    And no, the only time i make my bed is after washing everything or if the sheets ended up completely off the bed somehow.
    I lost this battle all throughout high school, but I fought the good fight. I get making an elementary-aged kid make his/her bed for play dates and what not, but by the time you hit high school, you're hanging out in the room with the biggest TV.

    A closed door that's clearly a door to a teenager's bedroom (posters all over the door, etc.) is guaranteed to remain closed if it were left up to "the company". But I never could get my mom to understand that. Of course, this is the same woman who was constantly on my case about not being organized when, despite the aesthetic chaos that was my living space, I knew where my **** was at all times. Then she'd get sick of it, clean the room and "organize it". So then I never knew where my stuff was, so I'd ask her where she put it (since everything was apparently now where it was supposed to be), and she could never remember. That bit never stopped ******* me off. Love her to death, but every now and then I wanted to beat her over the head with something.

    Back on topic: I've been sleeping on a futon for the last 4 years so no, I don't make my bed. I'm currently on an air mattress because I'm getting ready to move out and ditched the futon when my dad was in town with his truck. I've only ever made my bed when I was forced to in high school or extended stays at home during breaks, or when the covers eventually came completely unmade and it was a tangled mess trying to sleep in it.

    Re: Is your bed made every day? (Poll)

    We only make it after we wash the sheets and put them back on. Or when her parents come over. for some reason the wife thinks we'll be judged or something if this isn't done.

    Yes, because my wife does it. If left to my own devices, nope.

    My wife sleeps during the night and I sleep during the day. No need to make the bed.

    I only make the bed when I stay with friends or family, our bed is nearly never made.

    1) Our master bedroom is huge (at least for what I am used to), so to make use of the space, my wife's office (desk, computer, and credenza) is in the master bedroom. So when my wife and her friends have to go look something up on Pinterest, they usually go in there.

    2) We recently renovated our master bed and bath, so new guests often like to see how it turned out.

    This.

    I actively resist making the bed. It really serves no actual purpose.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Generally, company doesn't wander into our bedroom.

    But women are irrational, and feel that if their home doesn't look like a Better Homes & Gardens photoshoot whenever people come into their home, that they will be negatively judged by said people, and this includes my wife. Therefore she undergoes unnecessary house cleaning procedures when company comes. This includes making the bed.

    Though I'm married, I still make it most mornings. It's really quick and I'm usually waiting for the wife to get out of the bathroom.

    "looking something up on Pinterest"...sure, yep, that's what they're doing in there with the door closed.

    Then yes. I won't really called it "made". More that the covers are at least pulled up and spread out. We're not real tidy about it. If it was just me it would be a resounding NO.
