Yesterday the Wall Street Journal ran an article on how retail workers, trained to fold clothes a certain way, have brought these obsessive folding standards home and that it's wrecking their relationships. This article, by the way, is on the front page. Not only is this strange, but the fact that the Journal, known as a staid, conservative business newspaper, covered this at all is quite funny. Imagine the woman pitching the story: "So apparently Gap workers are so into folding clothes properly that it bleeds into their home life and causes trouble for their kids and spouse. It's a comment on the rigid standards of our culture!"
