In the basement of my apartment building is three washers and dryers. On Sunday afternoon, I went down to the basement to do a couple loads. All the washing machines had clothes in them.
“All right,” I said to myself, “I’ll come back in 20 minutes.” I thought this would be enough time for the person who owed the clothes to come put their clothes in the dryers.
An hour later, those clothes were still in the washing machines. Feeling pissed, I emptied two washers, putting the wet clothes on top of the washing machines.
Over half an hour goes by and I go back to the laundry room to put my clothes in the dryer. This other person has finally come downstairs to load his or her clothes in the dryer using up all three.
I’ll make a long story short. It took me over three hours to do two loads of laundry.
Notice to anybody doing apartment living: Be considerate of other tenants in the building. Don’t leave your clothes in the washing machine or dryer for hours on end. It’s damn rude.
