Yuppies should be allowed to dress differently. Otherwise, please pay me more, so I can afford my dry cleaning bills.
I’ve always hand washed my delicates, they are valuable investments, and I’m handle them with care.
But now I’ve sworn off dry cleaning except for extreme circumstances and I’m spending extra time at my sink hand washing my work clothes.
I’ve become an iron lady. No dress, sweater, or oxford shirt will be wrinkled after I’m done with it.
