I've never been a teenage girl but would like to think they wash their clothes. Did she never intend to clean her beloved jeans ?

Jeans technically (Well, men's jeans at least, seeing as most girls/women's jeans contain nylon/spandex/some other stretchy fabric, the rules might be different) can go months even years without requiring washing. The fabric comes to fit you in a specific way, matching your movements and proportions. Washing will undo this. I know a few people who don't wash their jeans, but just wearing them in the shower and let them soak, then their air dry them. keeps them fitting better.

But yes, the commercial is annoying. The little bitch can either do her laundry herself, or just shut the f**k up and let mother wash whatever she wants.

Is there a product called "teen jeans" or something?  And a commercial to go along with it?  Who is this "she" you're referring to?

The commercial came on AS I POSTED!

It's the one for Kenmore or Whirlpool or some other washer/dryer set that figures out what clothing is in it and how to preserve it. You just hear the voices of Mommy and her putrid pubescent pustule in a shouting match about "HOW DARE YOU WASH MY JEANS! THEY'LL FADE!" "They look like new." "I DON'T CARE! YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND ME!!!" as the camera zooms in on the Laundry room and the jeans...which look like they still have the price tag on them.

Oh, yeah---that one.  Teenage drama queen.  Doesn't she say something like "My life is ruined!"?  At least Mom completely dismisses her concerns.

I used a line like that once - jokingly - over some tiny little thing..OH! someone had taken the last chocolate mint ice cream.

Me: Life isn't worth living!

Mother: Want me to turn the oven on?

Oh yeah, when I was little - about 3-4 - she said if I was bad she'd "return me".

This time I was the winner, with the response: "Nuh-uh. It says on my butt, 'No returns, no refunds, no exchanges!'"

There's a picture of me somewhere where she actually wrote that on me with a sharpie....

My mom gave me a dose of my own medicine when I was about 5 or 6 years old and "playing wheelbarrow" with our dog.  By that I mean picking him up by his hind legs and walking him around the yard, making him use only his front paws which simulated a wheelbarrow.  Mom saw me doing this and went out into the backyard, grabbed my ankles, and made me run around the yard on just my hands LOL My sister and dad watched and laughed the whole time.  I don't remember it happening, but according to my sister's recollection I did do several faceplants into the grass because I couldn't keep up, and I do know that I never did that again to the dog.  I deserved it, and I'm glad I got punished for it .. I might not have been glad at the time, but now definitely yes.

See, it's creative parenting such as this that I admire. Sure, your mom could have smacked the crap out of you and said "don't do that"..or said "ok, honey, we don't treat the the dog like that, okaaaaayyy?" But no, she made you see how the dog felt...effective! I wish more parents thought like that!

So much this. We only had a cat growing up and we tortured the sh*t out of that cat because we didn't know any better. I'm talking putting the cat in the bed of a tonka truck and letting her ride down the stairs. I didn't really grow out of "animals aren't toys" until I was a teenager because I treated some of my hamsters as toys too.

I'm so freaked out that my child is going to f**k with my animals. I know 2 of them are just going to snap at him if he tries anything they don't like but the cat and one of my dogs are far too easy going.

As for this ad, it's stupid as hell. I have never heard a teenager site "fading" as a reason to not wash something, that's what a 35 year old woman in a 15 year old woman's body would say. Don't wash it because it will shrink, because it smells like my boyfriend, because it will get wrinkly, maybe, but fading? Not a chance.
It's ok, I'm in marketing!

^  We used to want our jeans to fade.  Well-worn was the look. 
 
Torn knees (as opposed to the pre-torn jeans teens buy these days) were cool, too.  As I got older, I found that the breezes hitting my knees felt kind of annoying.  That might've been when that which was "cool" took back seat to that which was practical and comfortable.

I was never much into fleeting fads. I wore Levi 501s in high school when they were $4.25. Now that Levis are closer to $50 I wear Wranglers or Rustlers.

WinkIndeed...and I always used to wear a Levi's Jean Jacket, too - if not a suitcoat - with my jeans.
We used to patch the tears - kind of looked like one was wearing a quilt, after awhile...then we quit patching. Was actually kind of nice when the breeze blew up up your pantleg and took care of the sweat (or rash?Confused).
These days, I've ONE pair of painter-style jeans for going out to special, dressy-up places. Wrangler-Riggs jeans which are very much like Duluth Trading pants.
Generally, ol' 'CommanderCommando Wolf' here does't wear pants anymore, unless I have to leave Wolfy Island...why?

I think again, this might be a gender thing.

Girls have the dark wash jeans to go with "this" outfit, some pale ones for that outfit, and so on. So should her dark ones fade, that'd eventually require getting a new dark pair.

I never got real trendy.  Most of the stuff I wore in the 70s was perfectly acceptable to me in the 80s and 90s, and still is today.  Color t-shirts and straight-leg blue jeans or army green cargo pants.  Or button-down shirts, slacks and a tie.  The old jean cut-offs (practically obscene) wouldn't be cool.  Nor would the platform shoes (which only came back in style for women).  But for the most part, I can look back on old pics and not have to laugh about what I was wearing.

^^ If you do time in the pen for too long, you may not realize how different the clothing trend is from before you started doing time:



"Say brother you been shoppin' at the Goodwill?" LOL
