Hospital Corners

Many, many moons ago when Spiderman and I first started dating and he first started sleeping over, I had a little test for him.  Well, it wasn't necessarily a test.  It was a curiosity.   I have to get up several hours before he does for work so that makes him the last person out of the bed.  The first time this occurred I discussed with my girlfriends my curiosity over whether he would make the bed or not.  They didn't think he would.  I was unsure.  
Sure enough, when I got home I went into the bedroom and he had made the bed.  Just how I liked it. (hospital corners, pillow shams and other decorative pillows in place) Everyone agreed.  He was a keeper.
Spiderman and I have been together 6 years now.  This is what the bed looks like most days. (this is a good day...he at least threw the comforter over the whole mess)
So my question is: At what point do men stop trying?

We stop trying pretty much at the point when we know it would take you too much work to leave. It's pretty effective for the most part.

Hmm? Mine never even did. His theory: why bother making it when your getting in it later. Guy thinking for you.

my husband has the same philosophy as lisa's, why make it if you are just going to sleep in it that night? he'll make the bed if i ask him too, but with our hectic life, our bedroom is the last room that gets any attention in our house!

Stop? When do they start? Just kidding! My husband is slob. Housekeeping is my domain, especially now that I'm a SAHM.

I got your card. Skinny jeans are the work of the devil! Thanks for the laugh!

My hubby could care less about a made bed. At least your comforter is not wadded up in a ball and is semi-neat.

I have a feeling it is directly related to the amount of "oral pleasure" they receive. My house is a lot tidier around that time.

Mine never did! His solution: close the door.
