    What is your problem? Have you ever bought a cup of coffee from Starbucks or dunkin donuts? That's insane! You can make your own coffee as long as you aren't lazy. I mean you can make it in the morning while you go get the morning paper!

    It may be passable, but nothing looks at good as a cleanly pressed shirt. For those "no iron" shirts, if you don't iron them and hang them to dry, the collar especially never looks as clean and sharp as an pressed shirt.

    You've always seemed like a nice, normal, reasonable person.

    What is it about this that has hit such a nerve with you?

    I don't want to iron my shirts. I work 6-7 days a week. I leave home when it's dark, and come home when it's dark.

    I don't want to iron my shirts.

    This is an example where I do pay, and feel guilty(*). It's SO easy to change oil & a filter.. but I do pay.

    (*) ok, that's not quite the right word.. I can afford it.. it just seems like a waste of money, and not exactly an extravagance, like eating out for basically all lunches, or even Tivos (could do manual recordings on some other device).

    Why does anyone here care what other people spend their money on?
    It's their money, not yours. Let it go.

    You are absolutely right, it is your money, you earned it and can spend it anyway you like.

    I think it bothered me because I struggle financially.

    Or really poor to spend your time washing, drying , ironing and starching your dress shirts. I don't wear many dress shirts these days but when I did they always went to the dry cleaner and it was always worth every penny because they get the shirts done so they look good.

    I would live you to run down a list of every single item you spend every month that relates to your appearance. From buying clothes to toiletries. To laundry detergent to make up, to cologne or perfume or haircuts and everything else.

    The only weird thing is people not knowing a lot of people who wear a dress shirt every day take them to cleaners.

    Plus I suspect his rate is more than $40 an hour for his level services.

    People often don't price out their own time and value it high enough. You can measure it against work and how much you make or even more valuable free time where you can do things you want to do. Unless you are seriously strapped for cash orreally love doing laundry and are really good at it so the shirts don't look like crap, then you might find a dry cleaner palatable.

    I spend a lot of time working and I find my free time to be pretty much priceless. If i still regularly wore dress shirts they would to laundry. The slacks or suits I wore were dry clean only.

    Don't worry about it 90% of the people who don't have a so doing their dress shirts take them to a dry cleaner. This is why there are five million dry cleaners. From a volume standpoint shirts have to be their biggest item by a huge margin. You are arguing with someone who doesn't wear dress shirts every day or values their own very little or really really really love ironing.

    It's funny how one simple comment can completely derail a thread off topic.
