Brian Stelter Grows Up, Does His Own Laundry Now

This sure looks like a freshly cleaned suit.

Stand by for news …

New York Times media reporter Brian Stelter finally did his laundry yesterday, something he apparently hasn’t done since 2008 or 2009. “Did laundry last night. First time in 3-4 years. Is this what growing up feels like?” the 27-year-old Mr. Stelter posted on his Facebook page this morning.

Some of Mr. Stelter’s 174,012 Facebook subscribers commented to express their disbelief that anyone could wait that long to launder their clothing:

“Um, did you realize you just used your out-loud voice? :0″ said one commenter.

“Are you kidding me? That’s crazy” another said.

“Did you mean years or weeks?” a third askd.

We have seen Mr. Stelter on a number of occasions and he never looks like he is wearing clothes that have been dirty since the first Obama inauguration. Maybe Mr. Stelter just buys new clothes whenever his get dirty. Or maybe his girlfriend, NY1’s traffic reporter Jaime Shupak, is doing the laundry.

Either way, we are impressed. And slightly disturbed.
