Open vs Close

Everyone knows for the most part what a hamper is for. It is a simple contraption that requires little thought. You open the lid, place the dirty item inside and close. You are now done until it is time to do the laundry. So why is it hard for my family to not open the lid but instead place the clothes on top or around the hamper? I can’t even blame my son for he has been doing his own laundry since he was 11. So it rests on my husband. I have asked my darling was there a problem, could he not figure it out, did he need help? You know, trying to do my part. His reply was a grunt. Really? It is not rocket science is it?

Does anyone else have this problem or are we the only special family on the block? I decided though to just ignore the frustration and when I see clothes not in the container to fix that. There are worse problems in the world to let this nag at me for as long as it has.
