Clothes Encountered !

October 28, 2009

Disclaimer : This is a true story, but the characters clothes mentioned in this post are fictitious and any resemblance to any sort of garment living or dead is purely coincidental.


Madam Machine : Godd…its stinking in here. Where is this coming from?

Blue : Its us maam, its us !

White : Heyy, don’t generalize, its not from me. I am supposed to be pure and I cant stink. It should be that black guy.

Grey : Racist ! It has been 5 days and we all have been right here, in the same position and how can you be the only person who wouldnt stink? We all are. What do you think, Black ?

Black (sleeping)

Blue : Mr. Black?? Mr. Blaaack??? BLAACK ???


I opened the lid of the washing machine and found a few of my clothes inside that had been lying there since Monday. It was Friday and it was supposed to be my all-socks-washing day. I had completely forgotten to take these clothes outside for drying, but heyy, not my fault, the washing machines lid was closed πŸ˜€ A fully automatic washing machine after drying the clothes should also have an alarm that goes every hour to inform that the clothes are still lying inside. One by one, I took out the clothes in a bucket to hang it outside – a Blue, White and a Grey Shirt along with a Jet Black Pant. But the clothes stunk so badly that even if a rat wouldn’t want to create a home out of it. I decided to give them one more wash, gave the necessary instructions to the washing machine, fed it with detergent and left to office, but this time, keeping a reminder on my phone to hang the clothes after returning back home.


Black (up from his sleep) : Uhh..huuh…mm…huh…whats happening? How come we are still in and why are we getting wet again?

Madam Machine : It’s a long story boy. You all are getting washed once again. Hang in there.

Blue : Oh no, not again. This isn’t fair. Once in two weeks, we go through all this twirling and spinning, and this is the second time this week. I hate getting washed, I guess I am getting pale with each wash.

White : I am fine with it. You guys would lose all your colors and become bright like me one day. It feels great to look good.

Grey : yeah, you have nothing to lose. You are colorless.! Shut up and rotate.

Blue : Black, will you stop playing with the bubbles ? don’t blow them on me !

Grey : He isn’t playing, he has gone back to sleep again. The bubbles are flying because he is snoring away to glory.

White : and I thought that weird noise came from the machine.

Blue : How can anyone sleep in between all this, beats me !

White : Ugly duckling, all this doesn’t matter to him. People notice only us, not the pants.

Grey : LOL, people will surely notice only if it is just us, White. We are incomplete without friends like Black. Love thy colleagues, or atleast try to.


Got home after my shift at around 3.30 am; it was Saturday and was the Diwali day. The first thing I did after entering in was hang those clothes, for which there is a provision outside my apartment near by bedroom window (I stay in the ground floor, remember ?)

After watching TV for a while, I went to bed. I might have slept for 2 hours on a stretch when all the Diwali crackers started bursting at around 6. Since I stayed in the ground floor, it was like someone bursting them right on top of my head. Chata pata chata pata chat pata..pata pata pata..chata. chata pata. I switched on the AC, so that the water dripping from the AC would stop people from bursting the crackers just outside my window and tried to catch some sleep. The AC trick worked or I must have been really tired, I actually fell asleep again and got up around noon.

Finished my routines (see, no mention of bathroom. Hmmpph!), had brunch and was watching TV for sometime. A detergent commercial reminded me of those clothes inside the machine and I was sure that by then, all of them would be dry and ready to get pressed. I took extra care in getting out of the house because some of the loonies were still bursting crackers outside.

Wished a few of my neighbours and went to the clothesline. The clothes were hanging alright, but looked as if they just returned from a civil war. The white shirt was grey in color, the pant was all dusty, the blue shirt turned greenish, oh but the grey shirt looked the same. If they were stinking of dampness earlier, its stinking of gun powder now. So that means, those loonies had a nice time celebrating their stupid diwali right in front of my room, huh? Idiots ! When will we all learn to be a little considerate? Forget the fact that a human being was sleeping inside, but there were clothes hanging outside, do they need to have fun right in front of the clothes ? People, I tell you !!

Took the same clothes for the third time to the washing machine, gave the same instructions, added a little more of the detergent and switched on the TV.

Madam Machine : Ohh no…you boys are back ? Ewww..and whats this smell? What have you boys been smoking ? Do I have to wash you all over again?? Its so bohoring !!

Blue : Sob sob ! Maam, please get rid of this smell from us. And look at me?

Grey : Stop cribbing. If there is someone who needs to cry, it has to be White. Look at him. White, white, who is the fairest of β€˜em all ?? Buhahahahahaha

White : You can tell that. You look the same.

Grey : Oh that’s because, I have never cared so much about how I look.

Black : Will you stop it? I am trying to catch some sleep.

Blue : How can you black? Arent you sad ?

Black : Whats the use ? We are now inside the machine and theres not much that we can do to stop it. Moreover, coming out of this in our old form isn’t with us. Why worry about something that’s not in our hands?

White : How will I ever face people now ? I am all dark now. I don’t deserve this.

Grey : Lol. Again, if there is anyone who deserves this, it has to be you White. Just so you know, we are suffering here only because of your deeds.

White : Stop it Grey, you always have been ugly, what do you know about looks, huh? You are created this way and you cant do anything about it. If both of us are equal, why is it that I am used for all good occasions like interviews and you for the normal days?

(Grey keeps quiet)

(Blue still crying)

Black : People stop ! White, you are or were good looking and grey is jealous, ok? Grey, White is plain silly and you are perfect, ok? And blue, stop cribbing. Maaam, will you please do the honors once again, donno if this is the last time, but please !!!

Madam Machine : yeah, keep quiet you guys. I cant concentrate on what I am doing. You all have to just sit in there, and I have to do the rest. Getting filled, rotate, spin, rinse, twirl and go through all that again and then get you guys dried. I am going to stop functioning from now on; I need rest too you see. I have been doing the same old work ever since I got in here. This is discrimination against us females.

TV : You have a better life than me Madam. You are on duty for just two days in a week. Sigh!


After the washing was done, I hung it at the same place and brought them back in before my considerate neighbours could start bursting crackers again.

Β —- After a day —-


Β Wore the grey shirt and the black pant to office.

Black : Any news on White ? The last I heard is that he has been given for dry cleaning, seems he didn’t get his β€˜white’ back.

Grey : Yeah, I feel bad for him though ! Don’t know when he would be back after all that torture to regain his looks. I hope he realizes one day that looks isn’t everything. And if this time, he doesn’t get back his looks, he would be used indoors and in no time, would be passed off as a rag or would probably be given away for charity.

Black : But why didnt you reply the other day when he humiliated you on your looks?

Grey : Sometimes, silence speaks a thousand words. I knew what was going to happen and wanted him to realize it in the hard way. Its always better to learn from your own experiences than from all those advises and sarcasms. Btw, do you know why you have come out the best after all those washing disasters?

Black : Nope, I really didn’t put my mind to it.

Grey : Exactly, that’s why ! The more you worry about such trivial issues, the faster you wither.

Black : hmmm…probably…that’s what happened to Blue too. Though he got back his color, his texture is completely ruined.


Just then a female colleague passed by my side and complimented on my dress.


Black : Heyy Grey, you rock.

Grey :Β  Not without you, buddy !

Black : Thanks Grey. Btw, did you notice that cute skirt. Is she single ?

      – Alarm buzzes
      – The washing machine door opens
      – A string comes out & attaches itself to the nearby wall
      – One by one clothes pop out and arrange themselves in a neat line!!!

      Ta da da!!!

      Vim : Wow !! Look whos thinking out of the box, I mean, washing machine now ! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

      Lazy Bugger!!! How can u forget ur clothes in a washing m/c for 4 bloody days??? You don’t forget mentioning bathroom but you forget all decent things!!!

      Vim : Every child is special ! I am a lill too absentminded ! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

      Vaise even I specialize in forgetting clothes in washing m/c or in washing colored clothes with white ones but I won’t tell that here πŸ˜‰

      Vim : ahaaaa !!! I knew it !!!

      BTW even ur clothes check out females & flirt?? tcch!! tcch!!!

      Vim : Whos wearing them ? πŸ˜€

      P.S. What else do I write for an innovative & decent post? And u say that if I praise u it chokes u!!! huh!!

            I thought you were a gamer, another misconception πŸ˜€
            AOE = Age of EMpires and 11 = laughing hot key, 11 X several times = lol πŸ˜€

  10. October 28, 2009 10:24 pm

    So, you wash your own clothes in a washing machine?? And you take it out and hang them all yourselves?? some hard working blogger you must be… πŸ˜› I liked the philosophy behind this post – beauty is temporary… but so is everything else πŸ™‚

    • October 29, 2009 3:38 am

      LOL, I know ! and I also boil water !! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

      Yup, beauty is temporary, btw, havent you written a post on those lines before ?

  11. October 28, 2009 10:42 pm

    ROFL! Vimmuuu – first things first – even your clothes flirt!!! and you accuse poor innocent Swaram of staring at you???????

    Your poor clothes! You washed them three times in a row – better watch out, you might have a full-fledged rebellion on your hands soon πŸ™‚

    But how could you forget your clothes for 4 days??? But your clothes have great characters πŸ™‚

    Great post, Vimmuuu – it was funny with a message πŸ™‚

    • October 29, 2009 3:37 am

      Even your clothes flirt ???? What on earth does that mean ??? πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ D πŸ˜€ Allegations, aargh !!!

      Heyy, I didnt forget them on purpose ! What to do !! Its all doings of fate ! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

      • October 29, 2009 3:36 pm

        I have a feeling that you decided to ‘forget’ them so that you could write this post πŸ˜‰

        Or now you could do a post on – ‘How to wash clothes right – the first time’ πŸ˜‰

        • October 30, 2009 3:57 am

          Nice idea ! You think I should do it ??? πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  12. October 28, 2009 10:43 pm

    Btw this counts as abuse too, na? Your poor clothes having to undergo 3 cycles in the washing machine – thanks to your carelessness πŸ™‚

    • October 29, 2009 3:35 am

      LOL !!! I liked that !! yes, this would count as abuse too !!! Its not that im careless, Im totally carefree ! πŸ˜€

  13. October 28, 2009 11:02 pm

    OMG you will not stop till you make people like me turn over and become an angel? How can I come up with innovative good comments all the time for you? The thought is making me loose my beauty sleep.

    What a fantastic, humorous * sakshi googling for APPRECIATIVE WORDS* *b…e..ep* *beep* well written post. *can you now see that Halo around my head?*

    Let me go and put myself in the washing machine and rinse out all the bad karma I just did and come back fresh and un-stretched to my original self to pull your legs.

    PS: Please sound the alarm if you do not see me back here in 24 hours as I might be still snoring inside the washing machine 😯

    • October 29, 2009 3:34 am

      Im making you lose your sleep ? Wow !!! No girl has ever said that to me πŸ˜‰

      Halo and you !!! Kidding, huh ? πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

      I dont think you are going to come back then, the dirt is within !

    Good one – an innovative thought, arising out of your laziness! Who says an idle brain (and body) is a devil’s workshop? And I thought you wud put a twist – black talking to the supposedly grey shirt, when the latter was indeed the white one! And since you were too lazy to take it out for dry cleaning, you went ahead with the ‘grey’ shirt and black trousers….

    P.S : I thot it was you who was stikin all the time !!!

    • October 29, 2009 4:01 am

      There you go ! Laziness, Idle brain and body, devil !!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

        Yeah..its true as it can get, especially with the talking clothes..and madam machine…
        …but don’t have to be the one opening up the still left the chores and all hard work to a feminine object….wonder what the lady readers of your blog feel about it…all the best πŸ˜‰

        • October 29, 2009 3:09 pm

          There is a reason behind being mum that the hardworker here is a feminine object and we didn’t protest because

          – By calling the Washing M/c Madam he has for the first time showed any kind of decency πŸ˜‰

          – He has proven himself to be a slave of the madam which has a mind of her own.

          – Madam knew that this bugger will blame her for not giving him a buzz after cleaning that’s why she took her own revenge by not cleaning ‘the white one’ and made him pay for the laundry bill πŸ˜‰

          See ultimately it is the feminine object who did the hard work but there is nothing new in it na πŸ˜€ and this idiot will have to come back to her, he can not live without it πŸ˜€

          But trust me Madam WM has a mind of her own and she knows how to put the owner in his place πŸ˜€ so why fight battels when there are wars to be won πŸ˜‰

    this has to one of the best humorous posts I’ve read in a long long time! while I was reading the conversations between the clothes,I remembered how,as a kid, I used to imagine,my dolls,chairs,TV and such things springing back to life when none of us human beings were around!

    Imagination can do wonders do our intellect.

    Fantastic post,Vimmuuu πŸ™‚

    but sometimes you had to get your dirty hands clean !!!!!!!

    only we didnt have washing machines.. we would soak the clothes in the bucket and use our leg as a machine twisting the clothes over and over in detergent water and phew… its done.. !!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    • October 29, 2009 2:56 pm

      legs as a machine..

    A true insight into a bachelor’s life – All socks washing day – OMG !!! Clothes forgotten in the machine for 4 days – OMG !! OMG !!!!

    This is the limit Vimmuuu !!! If this special child is like this with a simple task like washing clothes in a machine, I seriously pity your fiancee. Now that I am in Chennai, let me first meet her and talk to her abt the risks she is taking.

    But, Kudos to your creativity and writing skills on making a truly hilarious conversation among the clothes in the washing machine !!!! I appreciate the effort that went behind this post.

    But, why is the washing machine, a Madam ??????

    • October 30, 2009 3:38 am

      Heyyy, Im a good bachelor !! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

      LOL, dont pity her much. I will make her as my reminder to get the clothes out ! Howzzaat ??? and she isnt in chennai !!! yeyyyy !!!

    I know I’m EXSTREEMLY LATE in reading this post.

    Sorry. πŸ˜• Not had time to read, write or comment lately.

    *Vimmuuu is 😦 Badz is back. 😐 )

    Anyway, back to the post, I loved reading it.
    And bless you you’ve became “forgetful” and a “YOUNG” age. πŸ˜‰

    Although I must say you’re very economical to only use the washing machine twice a week. In household, it’s a MINIMUM of two washers a day. 😐

    And regarding forgetting your clothes in the washing machine. I suggest the next washing machine you buy, get one with a dryer in it. So is washes and dries. 2 in 1. that way, you won’t need to worry about forgetting about it. πŸ™‚

  59. December 4, 2009 12:06 am

    It was hilarious one and well attempted…I can sense the hidden meaning clearly and that makes it a sooper post, unlike the garbage that is being churn on blogs these days..hahaha the ending was cool…So is skirt still single? Skirt chasers grey n black!

    I laughed so much that I forgot to breathe…took sometime to come back, Vimmuuu! What an imagination! I may have to ‘copy paste’ the whole post to appreciate properly! Loved each and every line!

    This is where this comment was meant to be submitted 😈

    You have been tagged 4 days ago Vimmuuu.

    I read something about pink shirts as the only gift being received by those who do not pick it – one pink shirt can be washed and might turn black but a pink shirt for every birthday for next twelve years is not something one would be comfortable with washing. Not even the bathroom Kumaram. I feel picking the tag is easier than going through so much trouble. Of course it’s entirely upto you – pink shirts get washed with all other shirts , no extra effort so maybe they get a little faded but it doesn’t really matter…

    Like you said,

    “Grey : Sometimes, silence speaks a thousand words. I knew what was going to happen and wanted him to realize it in the hard way. Its always better to learn from your own experiences than from all those advises and sarcasms. Btw, do you know why you have come out the best after all those washing disasters?”
