This is the stupidest thing I've seen since yesterday.

More than 5,000,000 people have watched this video. It's two and a half minutes of authoritative instructions for folding a fitted sheet into a neat, compact rectangle.
My question is: Why would anyone fold a fitted sheet?

Each bed in your household requires two fitted sheets: one is on the bed, and the other is in the laundry. After you've done the laundry, change the sheets. If you own so many fitted sheets that you need to store them, you've purchased too many fitted sheets.

If storage is required, I'd propose laziness instead of folding. Wad up the sheets, stuff then into a drawer, or a box, or a big plastic bag, and move on with your day.

Keep your overflow of flat sheets in a different drawer, box, or big plastic bag. Another bin or bag for t-shirts. Another for your boxers or briefs. Folding such items might, arguably, leave them looking a smidgen better, but so what? Nobody's looking at your sheets or underwear.

Folding offers no advantage in comfort, durability, or any other aspect that matters, so folding sheets and/or underwear is simply a waste of time. Don't you have better things to do?
