So, following on from my thread: aibu to expect dh to NOT leave his pants on the floor
The challenge has begun!
Any bets? How long will it take for HIM to put them IN THE WASH? Not elsewhere in the house, but actually in the washing basket or, god forbid, in the machine?

ratfly - my dh could easily compete with yours! He once left a pair of gloves on our newly-recarpeted landing. They stayed there for 3 weeks and were only moved when he realised I was emailing photos of them to my friends with a note in a similar vein to your thread!
We have recently had a new loo seat delivered; he talked about fixing it. However, it arrived 4 weeks ago and is still in the hallway. I usually end up moving stuff like this, but for once (like the gloves instance), am prepared to see how long it takes....
My bet for your dh's pants is - 2 weeks min.

Ladies....could I make a suggestion...PICK YOUR BATTLES!!! No point in fighting losing ones. Your dh's will never pick up their underwear and even worse, they will never notice that you have left their unpicked up underwear all over the house or on their pillow or in their cereal. They are men (sorry to the male mumsnetters). Just pick up their underwear for them, save yourself the agro and spend the energy something else. Enjoy what they are good at and if they aren't good at anything then divorce them.
