You've all read about all the antics my father in-law has pulled at my house. This is a prank he pulled on my mother in-law at her house. By the way he's been making comments I'm trying to type disappear today. I have her permission to write this story.
My mother in-law was doing her laundry one day about two weeks ago and she put a pair of grey socks in the load. When she put the load in the dryer both socks went in. When she took the load out and brought it to her room to fold and put away one grey sock was missing. Who hasn't lost a sock in the laundry? When that happens to me I just figure the dryer ate it and forget it. Not her, she got herself in a tizzy. She gets into a tizzy over every little thing. She went back to the basement to look for the sock. She looked in the washer, no sock, she looks in the dryer, no sock. She told my oldest son about it and he told her it might have gotten stuck in the rim of the dryer. She told him that the dryer had been squeaking since the sock went missing. When she went home she checked the rims of the dryer AND washer no sock. A few days later she did another load of wash. When she opened the dryer lying there was the other grey sock!
In retelling the story I immediately said dad got you! My kids were telling her she got punked by grandpa. She admitted that she had a crappy week and needed a laugh. Knowing her as well as I do she probably was cursing him out and didn't laugh until she told us and we all laughed.
She said that was the first time that he got her. I reminded her that he got her at my house when he took a letter and credit card out of her pocket and put her in a tizzy. She and my husband looked all over even places it couldn't possibly be. When I told everyone to stop and said dad put it back, my husband found it easily after that.
