Not any one ss story, but generally, having to do with communal laundry rooms....So its Saturday morning, and as I was lazy last night, I didn't do any laundry. I decided to do some of it this morning, even though weekends in my laundry room are not fun! It opens at 9; I go down about 8:58 and hear the washers already running. No biggie as sometimes maintenance will open the room maybe 5 or 10 of 9. Nope, when I get in, 4 of the 8 machines are running and almost done with their 30 minute cycle. (and 2 are broken) And there is another couple waiting. Not only that, but 4 of the 6 working dryers still have clothes in them from yesterday as do three of the carts! So the woman who had the washers going comes down, and me and the couple decide who needs how many, and it all works out.
I go back down to put my stuff in the dryer, and the maintenance guy is in there, cleaning, but with the door closed and smoking! I hate smoke, it gives me a headache, and I also don't want my nice clean clothes to smell like it. So I took one of the carts, still full of someone's clothes from yesterday, and propped open the door. Its chilly, and he gave me a look, but hey, too bad. You don't like it, put it out.
Then I had to empty out someone else's stuff from a cart, onto the bench in there, so I could use it. UGH! I really don't like touching someone else's clothes, even if they're clean. It just skeeves me out for some reason. I don't understand the leaving of the clothes in the washer, or dryer, or in the carts. Do folks really think that its just going to sit there, when others need to use them? The stuff in the carts was most likely left in the dryer, and someone else took it out to use them.
And don't get me started about all the detergent spilled all over the tops of the washers, the lint in the dryers, and the used dryer sheets scattered all over the floor. Is it really that hard to put your detergent in without spilling it, and if you do, COME BACK with something to wipe it up with...and when you take your clothes out, empty the lint filters, and throw away your dryer sheets!
Fortunately my stuff is now in the dryer, and i plan to go down about 10 minutes before its done, since I hate anyone but me touching my clothes.
