Their bathroom has no door.  Not temporarily, but…FI says for at least the last 10 years.  It’s not just me, right?  It’s down a long hall, but, weird!

And I didn’t adapt.  We stay at a hotel, and I just limit my fluid intake when I’m there πŸ˜›

Haha! i HATE topsheets and use them for nothing but taking up room in my linen closet or to take on vacation if we rent a house. I used to use them all the time, but I hate having my feet confined,so was always pulling them out anyway. She’s normal,in case you don’t know. πŸ˜› Lots of us  start to cut corners when we’re trying to simplify our lives.

Well you can buy just the bottom sheet so that’s probably what she does but seriously why no top sheet?? I’ve never heard that before and man she must have to wash the comforter and blanket a TON!!! I mean part of the awesomeness of the top sheet is it keeps you from having to wash the rest of the bedding every week! That’s kind of weird but I guess I shouldn’t talk I actually don’t like my sheets to match, bottoms and tops need to be different colors (matching but not exact), pillow cases match one of the sheets doesn’t matter which.

@VirginaMarie – I don’t use a topsheet and I wash my quiltcover every week and my quilt very often! Topsheets remind me of uncomfy hotel beds for some reason!

Ha! I actually use duvet covers that get washed weekly and the comforters get dry cleaned.

I forgot to answer the question. My inlaws never put napkins on the table when serving any meal. Used to drive me insane. I also had a friend invite us for Thanksgiving dinner one year when we were living in Colorado,and she put a roll of paper towels on the table when I asked for napkins. SHE thought I was too fussy! lol

We don’t use topsheets, because I hate hate hate them.  They always end up bunched up around my feet, and it’s no hassle to wash our duvet cover once a week.  The only time I like topsheets is in the summer when it’s too hot for blankets.  Or when I’m building a fort.  Because forts are awesome, at any age.

My in-laws house is strange because they leave the radio on for about half an hour in the morning, playing loud crappy pop music from the nineties.  It drives me crazy. 

They are also a perpetual take-out/restaurant house, so there’s never anything to cook or eat, or if there is, it’s expired.

Umm…my FMIL lives in a trailer by the side of a freeway with her freaky BF and a shut-in roommate and meth addicted neighbors. So, yes, I find things to be strange at her house. I’ve stayed there once, and will not do so again.

I technically have my top sheet on my bed but leave it tucked in.  (I hate making my bed)  So I just use my quilt and wash it when I wash my sheets.  I need to wash everything more often :/

As for my FMIL house, the fact that they have technically only two bedrooms and 7 people are currently living there bothers me.  Also, she doesn’t clean very well (or at all), I know I know I shouldn’t be critical b/c my apartment isn’t great.  She doesn’t have a job, and I always see FFIL doing the cleaning/laundry even though he’s the “breadwinner”.  She does cook, I just have to make sure there’s no cat hair on my food πŸ™

I love how this turned into topsheet post instead of IL’s house πŸ™‚ I use a cotton light blanket in place of a top sheet (find it more breathable) but need top sheets when sleeping elsewhere. Hubby and I have separate blankets btw πŸ™‚ We don’t share!

My IL’s REFUSE to allow anyone to cut their nails in the house. Even in the middle of a blizzard, you have to go outside. Seriously!

Yes, I use a topsheet for my guests beds.  I try to act semi-hospitable.

@kjpugs:  I personally hate it when people cut their nails b/c they don’t make sure they cut them over trashcans so I’m cleaning and I find random nails…GROSS!  However, to not allow someone to cut nails in their house is bizarrre.
