EVIDENCE

Submitted by Leesa

Photo 1: “Sea of Socks. This is on a king bed. Khakis, white, and black. This was 107 pair. BUT, I might add that THIS DID NOT INCLUDE DIRTY SOCKS OR UNMATED SOCKS. That would put us close to 160, I am guestimating.”

Photo 2: “Matt’s “exciting” socks. Three pair. I like the “flashy” (for him) socks. But we have no room at the Sock Emporium for new styles.”

Photo 3: “Matt’s dresser. Socks are shoved wherever they can fit. Along with old T-shirts and unmentionables he refuses to trash. He actually said, “I need a new dresser to fit all of my stuff.”

Photo 4: “Matt’s laundry day. He does a fantastic job with folding and sorting. He is MUCH neater than I when it comes to folding and sorting. But look to the right. Close-up below.”

Photo 5: “His “refusal” pile.”

Photo 6: More refusals. He says these don’t have mates. EXACTLY. Look at all of the khaki unmated.

Photo 7: “​!!!!! Not-so-conservative socks. He gets a lot of compliments at work.”
