Nope. I'm just going to fall into it when I'm ready to relax and go to bed... Why? Seriously? Why make your bed??

if just chucking the quilt over the pillow where ever counts then most days. I don't like leaving it where there's no effort, though there's time I just cba.

I try to when I can but I'm not always on top of it. Speaking of bed, I remember this graduation speech from Admiral McRaven at the University of Texas he gave regarding making your bed:

"Every morning in basic SEAL training, my instructors, who at the time were all Vietnam veterans, would show up in my barracks room and the first thing they would inspect was your bed.

If you did it right, the corners would be square, the covers pulled tight, the pillow centered just under the headboard and the extra blanket folded neatly at the foot of the rack—rack—that’s Navy talk for bed.

It was a simple task—mundane at best. But every morning we were required to make our bed to perfection. It seemed a little ridiculous at the time, particularly in light of the fact that were aspiring to be real warriors, tough battle hardened SEALs—but the wisdom of this simple act has been proven to me many times over.

If you make your bed every morning you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride and it will encourage you to do another task and another and another.

By the end of the day, that one task completed will have turned into many tasks completed. Making your bed will also reinforce the fact that little things in life matter.

If you can’t do the little things right, you will never do the big things right.

And, if by chance you have a miserable day, you will come home to a bed that is made—that you made—and a made bed gives you encouragement that tomorrow will be better.

If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed."

Growing up my step-mother would scream at my dad if I didn't have my sheets tucked in the mattress and a crease between my pillows and duvet. She also would take me and my sister's dinner away and send us to bed if she didn't approve of our table manners. We dreaded having to go over there for weekends. My mom was the complete opposite; she was too busy to give a damn about the state of our bed-sheets.


I'd have told her to fuck right off if she tried that with me, she's not related to me biologically, she has no say in anything. Try taking my food? That's a good way to loose a limb... Or something more valuable.


You're Canadian, so you would have told her "Would you Fuck off. Please?"

Right?


"Would you please fuck off?" is more grammatically correct but yeah, sorry my proximity to the border was showing

Fuck no.

I live by myself. Also my bed room is one of the last rooms I have left to leave a mess. (at least until I get it painted, and a decent actual bedrather than the matress on the floor that I've slept on for nearly 10 years.

I don't tuck the sheets or anything but I make my bed.
I like it better than falling into a pile of blankets to later find that you're laying on half of them.
or they're all bunched up behind your back or neck.

No. I see no point in making it neat if it's just going to get messed up again (of course there are some exceptions to this way of thinking, for example, bathing). Also dust mites are more attracted acted to neat beds than other,so that's a plus . Finally, it's just a waste of energy, unless you have OCD and can't stand anything unorganized, you really are wasting 5 minutes of your life.
