    I'm starting to get tired of it.

    Every week, I take my work clothes to the dry cleaners and these people just can't figure out how to treat my shirts.
    I need the front of my shirts UNBUTTONED for me to get dressed. I don't need my sleeve cuffs or collar unbuttoned to get into my shirts, I need them buttoned.
    Yet, every time I pick up my shirts the front is buttoned up whilst the cuffs and collars are unbuttoned. They have it completely ass-backwards.
    Do these people not wear clothes with buttons? Or are they just the the dumbest people on the planet?

    It's an ancient Chinese secret.

    It is buttoned/unbuttoned that way becasue that is the easiest way for it to be ironed.

    Do your own shirts and you won't have to deal with them.

    When you buy new shirts, they're buttoned. Does that piss you off as well?

    And what about all those needles? And the cardboard?

    I've read that just visiting a dry cleaner once a week exposes a person to enough chemical fumes to impare their judgement.

    That's what I would do...why waste money paying someone to do your clothes when you should be doing them yourself...
