My newest obsession!

I love this pod! It's so easy to listen too. The voices of the hosts are easy on the ears and the length is perfect for my drive. I am also able to share with my daughter and we can discuss etiquette. That's a major plus as she is 6 and I want to impart the importance of etiquette and manners without making it seem like you have to a doormat to others. I have always been enthralled by etiquette and this podcast just makes my heart happy. I can not stop talking about it!

Podcast 78 husband irked by mom washing sheets

I think if it offends the husband that his mother in law is washing the sheets upon her departure, the wife should bring it up with her mom not to wash the sheets; provided that the husband agrees to wash & replace them on the guest bed in the future within 6 hours of the mother in laws departure. IF he fails to timely get this accomplished within the 6 hour window, he shall pay for a spa service, hair service or shopping trip in the amt of $300.00. I think that’s fair.
