    Reason #189 Why you should always make your bed.

    Because when your 1 year old nephew dials 911 when playing with the phone, you don't want the police officers who come to your house to see your messy room as they search the house for the victim who called in the emergency!

    Also laughing with you here. I can't believe they searched your house! Can't decide if that's good or bad...

    lol OH NOOOOOO! My bed is never made. I have mismatched bedding and it's ugly, so I figure there's no use in making it if it will be ugly even if I make it. hehe

    ooops!! when my nephew managed that trick, we just got phone call from the emergency services, who could then hear him chattering in the back. We got a serious telling off, and felt suitably ashamed - and thats without them turning up to search the house - poor you!

    I am in the "don't usually make the bed" category - much to my mother's disgust (it goes against all her training), maybe if I heard a few of the other reasons I'd get more motivated?!?

    Apparently if you make the bed as soon as you get up, it encourages the growth of dust mites and stuff in the warm, snuggly environment. So it's best to leave it until later. About bed-time works for me

    What a fun that will be to tell his friends when he gets older!
    Paybacks I tell you - paybacks!

    I usually at least pull the bed together - not really make it. Kind of half arsed made...

    My neighbor's boy did that when she was in the shower once. He hung up as soon as the dispatcher picked up, so they sent a patrol car to her house. Yikes!! At least you weren't getting out of the shower at the time!

    Oh dear! A fun day Jen! Well our beds are generally made but I can think of a few other things I would be worried about an officer seeing when searching our house... the tornado of a toy room comes to mind... some unfinished home projects - yeah, the house is a wreck in some places. EEK!
