To bloody well expect to have the same socks that I put in the washing to come out of the washing. My odd sock pile is growing

I believe certain socks abscond to join a sock militia. One day they'll take over the world.

This is why I only buy one brand of black socks

Which is all very well until you take the washing out to discover a mystery non-back sock in there smile

Pounce on it, wrap it tin foil and throw it in the bin, don't give it the chance to breed😆

Swear the buggers are breeding in our house is there a form of family planning that does not need tin foilsmile

Here is a woo tale for you...

I took the washing out of the dryer yesterday and every sock had a mate. Not a single odd sock.

Witchcraft.

The mistery of odd socks is why they created tights...

I might do that elastic on gloves through coat sleeves with DS and his socks and trousers because that child is the Bermuda triangle of lost underwear.

Completely unreasonable give up and wear odd socks it's very on trend -- or I'm past caring enough to look any more-- 😂

IMissGrannyW Mon 07-Nov-16 23:49:54

I LOVE wearing odd socks. So does DD. DH (who hates this) is screwed. I've explained it's his fault though, because it always is! He's working at learning to live with it.

I had two random odd socks appear out the dryer that I've never seen before wrong size and colour to be any of my dc very strange!

Sock goblins live in our washing machine!

user1471507699 Tue 08-Nov-16 09:43:15

My old (male) flatmate used to wash and dry his socks in a pair with the tops folded together. I imagine he had permanently musty socks but never odd socks!

summerskittles91 Tue 08-Nov-16 10:54:28

my life changed since we bought a socks net! For ages I was convinced the washing machine was eating socks. all good now though.

Perhaps dryers are actually sock teleportation devices Lola and one of your neighbours is now pulling your socks out of their dryer in the same confused bewilderment? grin
