Friend is a sheriff's deputy. Not sure about anybody ironing clothes anymore. But, people still use irons on each other and kids. I have no scientific data, this is purely anecdotal, based on friend's work "you can't believe what this sick fook did" stories for the past 23 years. Irons seem to be used about as often as boiling water. Interesting factoid: If a parent holds a child's hands in water hot enough to cause burns, the resulting burned hands and wrists are called "immersion cuffs". Glad I chose to work with electrons and machines, not people.Here I thought people straight up just didn't iron anymore.
