Sock mystery

141 words on

You know those stories that washing machines actually ‘eat’ socks just to make sure you’re upset? I don’t believe they’re true, yet I trie to always buy several pairs of the same socks to be on the safe side. However, recently, I started having the impression that there are quite a few stray single socks in my drawer. But, I figured out, that this was probably just due to me just throwing them in there, not making sure the pairs stay together.

After last weekend’s laundry fun I decided to try and sort those socks out today. At the end of the procedure I had nine single socks left, some of which definitely aren’t mine. How could that happen? Are those rumours true after all? And do the washing machines insert the socks they steal into other people’s washing at times?
