"Maybe they should break the 'schedule' down into smaller increments. I can kind of see why if there's a five hour stretch, someone might assume that if they find the washer empty, the person scheduled to use it plans to use it "later"."
For someone who needs to do a family's worth of laundry, five hours isn't all that long so breaking it up would just mean that big families would need to reserve multiple slots. Also, since the sign-up sheet lists the schedule by name and apartment, it's on the queue jumper to go ask if the machines are free, not just assume.
