Wet laundry’s a bitch

May 28th, 2008 · 212 comments

Spotted by Anna on the wall of an apartment complex in Phoenix…

Enjoy your yeast infection! :)

Meanwhile, in Ottawa…it’s comforting to know that even when Mom isn’t there to do your laundry, she can still help you guilt-trip your neighbors.

To the person who rudely took my laundry out of this dryer and tossed it in a damp pile on the dirty shelf, I'm terrible sorry that your laundry had to wait the 5 mins it was taking me to come downstairs to remove my own laundry from the dryer. I'll tell my mom next time she shouldn't call me during laundry time as someone, such as yourself, may have to wait a few mins longer for the machine. I'm aware of the fact that there are only 2 machines for the entire building but give me a break - how rude can you possiblt be? Perhaps maybe in the future we can work out a time schedule so that my meger [sic] clothing doesn't interfere with your clearly superior laundry. Thanks for that.  P.S. I was planning on allowing my stuff to COMPLETELY dry and put more $ in the machine but your needs come first, I understand.

    The first one is great. If the dryer is still going, you can’t take out somebody else’s clothes.

    The second one is BS. Almost all dryers allow you to put in extra money. Also, how was the person supposed to know if it had been 5 minutes or 2 hours? Get down there before your time is up. It’s not that hard to do. I’m sure chit-chat with your mother couldn’t have waited 10 minutes.

      Yep, have to agree. The first one is dead-on [I have had that happen to me in a crappy apt. complex I lived in... are people THAT desperate to steal some quarters?] but the second one is bullshit. I don’t care if you were on the phone… someone comes to use the dryer, they have no way to know when you’re coming back. I have been in laundry rooms/laundromats where things are done when I arrive, and they’re still sitting there when I leave — having done a full wash and dry cycle. People are used to seeing that.

      Anyway, why should someone have to wait even 5 minutes for YOU?

      Instead of wasting time writing notes, it would have made more sense to throw bleach on the offender’s clothing. From the second note, one can only glean that the offender took out the laundry and then used the dryer themselves. So the person whose clothing got taken out of the dryer should have similarly desecrated that person’s clothing if it so bothered them. If they didn’t want to go so far as to throw bleach on the clothes, they could have at least turned off the dryer and thrown that person’s clothes on the floor. Tit for tat, right?

      If people don’t want their laundry scattered around by laundry villains, STAY IN THE LAUNDRY ROOM with your laundry! I live in Houston, and it is sweltering outside, and I still stand out there by my washing machine and dryer because I don’t trust my heathen neighbors.

    Removing clothes from a still-running machine is unforgivable. But from a stopped machine? I give you a ten-minute window of mercy before I toss your clothes — clean or dirty, wet or dry — on the folding table.

    You’re welcome.

    Seriously. Dorms and apartments have way too few machines for you to leave your clothes in after the cycle is complete.

    I’m glad you understand that my need for clean clothes comes before your need to be tardy. :)

      I totally agree. I give tardy people 15 min to remove their stuff, then it goes on top of the dryer.

      Also, if you plan to refill the quarters, and go for a second cycle, you definately better be there on time, if not early.

      However, I forgive #2 because I am in love with her hand-writing!

    As the author of the second note, its common courtesy to leave clothes in the machine unless you are extremely lazy and are waiting an ungodly amount of time for someone to switch the loads. I couldn’t bump my mom off the phone as she was telling me how my grandmother was in the hospital (not exactly a social call). The clothes were still sopping wet because the second dryer is a little touchy – sometimes it dries things perfectly other times it doesn’t get hot enough to dry everything (dependent on how often its been used that day) so why waste an extra $2.50 on the dryer in CASE the clothes may not be dry… especially since the $2.50 is all in quarters which is a royal pain in the ass.

    As far as leaving it on the extremely dirty / dusty shelf the is behind the dryers that was just uncalled for, my clean white work shirts got covered in crap that Im still in the process of getting out….

    Oh, and I always time my laundry as the machines go in 20 min, 30 min and 1 hr intervals so its really not difficult to keep track of how long your clothing has been sitting in the washing machine or dryer. Like I said, the people in this building are usually pretty good about switching loads when they are done and being patient about waiting but this person apparently was not.

    So lets hope that clears things up :)

      Ashley, the reason your clothes were removed from the dryer is because the person who moved them has just as many important things to do as you. Stop being a selfish bitch and tend to your laundry so other people don’t have to.

      Removing wet clothes from a dryer might be discourteous but not nearly as much as leaving your wet clothes in a stopped dryer.

      Nobody cares about your grandmother. Grandmothers get sick, they go to the hospital and they die. There’s nothing you can do about that, but clothes don’t dry themselves, sweetie.

      Ashley, your excuses don’t make that note any less douchey. You can take your cell phone into the laundry room and check on your clothes… it is even possible to unload the dryer while holding a conversation.

      There is a simple solution to dirtied white shirts (which can’t *possibly* have gotten so unbelievably dirty in just the short while of sitting on a shelf). It is called bleach. Buy some.

      Finally, people don’t track your laundry. And why should they? It’s (gasp) YOUR RESPONSIBILITY!

      (signed),
      a rather reasonable launderer

      P.S. Sorry to hear about your grandma. Hope she gets better so she can teach you some manners.

      P.P.S. I love that your comment here is just as passive-aggressive as the note you so bitchily left in the laundry room.

      Please. You said right in the note that there are only two machines in the building. As someone in an identical situation I have zero pity for someone who fails to remove their clothes on time. Instead of being a selfish cow, take your clothes out of the damn dryer so that other people don’t have to rearrange their lives to suit yours.

      I dispute the point that only the “extremely lazy” would move your clothes. As a representative of that demographic, I can confidently say that I would simply leave my wet clothes in the washer until an empty dryer appeared. They might sit there the whole weekend. I’m in no rush.

      I guess the part I don’t understand, is where is your laundry basket??? Wouldn’t that have solved the whole problem.

      Having lived in Apartment Hell, as I like to call it, for over 10 years now, I really want to side with Ms. Ashley… Yet, I also get really irked when I cannot get my laundry in one of the only 3 dryers in our building.

      IMO Pulling the clothes out of the dryer wasn’t the rude part. It was putting them on the nasty shelf. Unless Ms. Ashley forgot to leave her laundry basket there, for just such a situation.

      I also gotta agree with Eli:
      ” I love that your comment here is just as passive-aggressive as the note you so bitchily left in the laundry room. “

      And thus we have demonstrated the slippery slope of poor laundry management. Next thing you know there’s a pile of dirty clothes outside the laundry room and people can’t get through the hall. That leads to garbage in the hallways, unflushed toilets and then, with nothing to eat, the CHUDs come out of the sewers to feast on our unclothed flesh.

      I wish people like Ashley could see the ramifications of their actions. This is how the colony of Roanoake disappeared. Some nubile little twit left her petticoats on the line and chaos ensued.

      Here’s how it works:

      I consider a dryer to be available if it is not currently tumbling and drying stuff.

      If there’s an empty available dryer, I’ll use that. If not, I’ll look for an available dryer with dry clothes in. If I can’t find one of those, I’ll use an available dryer with wet clothes in.

      If your clothes are occupying the available dryer which I have selected, I will remove them, whether they are wet or dry. I will not wait around for you. Expecting me to do so is an unjustified sense of entitlement.

      If there is somewhere clean to put your clothes, I’ll put them there. If there is not somewhere clean, just a dusty shelf, that’s your problem.

      So basically you should have thought ahead, and done your washing at a time when you could be around to take it out of the dryer. Either that, or you should have left a clean laundry basket there for the clothes to go in.

      Well said Matt.

      As a proprietor of a laundromat, I have one more bit to add:
      If you don’t want to be bothered having to wait for a machine, taking a chance on crappy half working dryers or dealing with other impatient laundry-doers; find your self a good laundromat.

      A good one will be staffed, which means broken machines don’t go unnoticed for weeks so you shouldn’t have to guess whether the dryer is working that day. It also means that some creepy stranger won’t go throwing your clothes on a dirty shelf since the attendant will have a clean cart to put them in if it’s terribly busy and you happen to be late. Know what else it means? You can do more than one load while you’re there and save time.

      Numinous makes such good points! In fact, I think the washers and dryers at my closest laundromat may even be cheaper than the ones in my building.

      Damn myself for being too lazy to go to a laundromat! Apparently the convenience of doing laundry in slippers and my pj’s is worth more to me than all the pitfalls of communal laundry.

      I can’t wait to be rich enough to send out my laundry. That, or to have kids, and make them do it ;)

      God people like this are the worst. No one can know how long you’re going to be, whether its 5 minutes or 5 hours, even allowing a grace period is just taking time away from other people while they wait to see. If talking on the phone about family business is more important to you, then accept that the potential consequence is that you lose your place in the laundry line and will have to start over on waiting. If things happen to change my priorities, thats the sort of thing I take into consideration when I make my decisions. Argh, my mom called and grandma’s sick, oh well, I guess I’ll have to finish my laundry later. I don’t blame everyone else who has laundry to do for this. If you want to be this possessive, spend the money and buy your own damn laundry machines. You don’t get to apropriate public property for yourself.

    If the dryer’s still running, you cannot empty it – that’s fair enough. But the millisecond that baby stops a-tumblin’ I will get your clothes out of there and put mine in, even if yours are damp. What do I care?! And if the same thing happens to me – I seriously don’t care. “Oh well.” I say to myself. “I guess I’ll have to wait 45 minutes.” I don’t spend 1/2 an hour crafting a snotty note and whining. Jeez!

    The dryer is not a clothing storage device and you shouldn’t leave your clothes unattended in a public or community laundry room.

    Here’s a hint from Heloise: on laundry day, take extra change and a book to the laundry room and don’t leave unless your laundry is going with you.

      There is totally a 5 minute grace period; the problem is, most people have an odd interpretation of 5 minutes. To me, 5 minutes is 5 minutes on the clock. To my husband, for example, 5 minutes is 5 minutes plus the time it takes one to go to the bathroom and put on one’s shoes (i.e. 10 minutes in clock time). The types who leave notes like those posted today quite probably have a warped sense of 5 minutes. Knowing my obsessive attitude about time, I always give a minimum of 10 minutes of clock time to dry clothes that are actually dry. For laundry that isn’t yet dry, I give about an hour. I shouldn’t live with dirty/wet clothes and waste my precious weekend hours waiting for someone who can’t manage their laundry. You have to be assertive for your laundry rights in situations of limited washer/dryer access, but that still doesn’t give you the right to be a total laundry Nazi.

      Oh yeah, totally because you say so. It’s called efficiency. Be there when your dryer is done and you never have to worry about people taking your clothes. If they come and take it out early, they deserve thrush. I am not going to stand around for 5 minutes waiting for someone and I’m not going to come back in another 5 minutes because someone else might take that dryer like a reasonable person. If there are 2 washers and dryers, you have to know people are waiting.

  • #16   Thankful not to be Ashley's mother

    Ashley, I’m a mom so I type this with the wisdom of a mother, knowing full well that your own mother has failed you in one very serious way by neglecting to teach you an important life lesson.

    If you are of an age to live alone and do your own laundry, you are of an age to understand that the world does not revolve around your being.

    You are not precious.

    You are not perfect.

    You are merely a member of society, as we all are.

    You are of an age to understand that decent people do not inconvenience others and then whine, moan or write nasty notes about how others have reacted to said inconvenience.

    I know that one day you will be taught this lesson by someone who should not have to do the work neglected by your mother.

    Lessons learned so late after the fact are usually much more painful and protracted than those we should have learned at our mother’s knee.

    I wish you good luck. You are clearly going to need it.

      Grab that dryer as soon as it stops or be there all day playing nice-nice.

      As for drying times, the machine is not “touchy”. It’s a machine. Drying times vary because sometimes Miss Ashley overloads the dryer.

      As for the first note, your baby probably got thrush in the first place because of unsanitary conditions in your home. What kind of irresponsible parent would leave their baby’s toy unattended in a public place? Don’t you know yet that EVERYTHING goes straight to baby’s mouth?

And yes, AB’s will not CAUSE the yeast infection, poor word usage, they will however, CAUSE the levels of good bacteria to go way down, therefore allowing the yeast naturally present to grow easily thus causing said yeast infection. That and I’m also a Chick, and well, we have to know these things.

    I’d like to quote some laundry room etiquette from http://etiquetteer.com/columns/etiq4.27.html

    “3. Please show courtesy to your neighbors by removing your clothes from the machines as soon as possible. Leaving clothes overnight in either machine is just plain rude anyway.

    4. Other residents have permission to remove your clothes from the machines if they are in the way. If you do not like having other people handling your clothes, it is your responsibility to be sure that they aren’t in someone else’s way.”

      additional laundry room etiquette:

      1) carry an extra plastic garbage bag with your laundry things; cover the table or shelf with it and then you have a nice spot to clump the abandoned laundry
      2) if abandoned items are completely dry and not of a personal nature, you can fold them :shock:
      warning: this step may lead to a nicer world, use with care

    This is the best post evah!

    Note 1 was heartfelt and unjust to the writer. Note 2 was douchey.

    So I got tragedy and comedy all in one post. I feel so well balanced!

    I love PAN…and now I do even more.

    The comments to this post were truly the best. I was about to jump in and criticize Ashley (aka Douchey)….but everyone thoroughly beat me to it. And did a much better job than I ever could…which was so rewarding to read.

    And to have her drop in and clarify her note….amazing (if it is true…which I think it is…damn it!…let me have my dreamworld!)

    Man, I hate people that leave their clothes in the dryer or washer after they are done like they are entitled to the world. Or that get all upset when they find that unimaginably it has been removed by the next customer in line.

    I used to live in an apartment block in Ottawa (no less, home of Ashley) where tenants would leave their laundry for days in the washer. Washer! I’m not even talking about the drier. You could work around them and put their clothes back in the washer without them even noticing the world had moved around them. Or worst yet, you’d come down after being away for a week and find their crusty crumpled dried-out clothes inside the washer like a hairball of ignominy.

    Or you’d move their wet laundry (from the shoddy drier) to the folding table…only to see it sit for 3 weeks untouched. I could never understand that. Who washed and dries clothes they never pick-up? And how can you not notice that you never picked up your laundry? You’re gonna run outta gitch some time!

    Perhaps too many clothes…too many quarters…not enough cents [sic]

    There was a similar PAD at one point at my apartment…so who knows…maybe I was living with Ashley? Thank God I live in a house and have my own drier and don’t have to deal with the self-entitled of the laundry world…

    I scattered someone’s clothes all over the laundry room floor once…and even did a little dance on them for good measure. Of course, it was revenge for the fact that they had taken my single white shirt that I had for work, ( that I had just touched up by hand and thrown into the dryer )out of the dryer long before the dryer was up, apparently kept it since it was nowhere to be found…and was using my time left on the dryer to dry their damn clothes! So yeah…on the floor, a little dirt thrown in and a two step…bet they never did that again!

      The worst is people who use the “I Have a Baby So I Must Be Important” strategy to haughtily force their way with their carriage through crowded public areas… who don’t actually have a baby.

      I have seen this on several occasions at the Farmer’s Market on saturday mornings. Nobody says anything to a stressed-looking pushy lady with a baby carriage in a very crowded market, but whenever I loudly point out that this one doesn’t have a baby in her carriage, they tend to get less shovey real fast.

    I once waited 30 minutes for somebody to remove their dried clothes from the dryer before I finally pulled them out and put them on the folding table. I loaded my wet stuff in and started it up for a 45-minute run. I came back 45 minutes later to find that my clothes were GONE and the dryer still had 35 minutes left. Clearly the person was so pissed off that I’d DARED to touch their stuff that they threw mine away, still wet. That’s the gratitude I get for being PATIENT.

    When I was in college, I would occasionally miss the time and forget to go get my laundry in an efficient fashion. Subsequently, I’d find my laundry in a big wet heap on the laundry room table. Now whose fault was that? Sounds like mine. So I would have to wait until a dryer was empty. Them’s the breaks. Though I once came back after leaving my clothes in the dryer to find them nicely folded on the laundry table. Me, I would have just dumped the dry clothes onto the table. Whoever actually folded my clothes is an angel. Thank you, clothes-folding-person, whoever she is. (no guy would have done that.)

    I personally know the girl who posted this note. Her babe was in the hospital with RSV for two weeks and was receiving rounds of antibiotics “just in case”. He developed thrush in the hospital.

    These apartments are too shitty to have enough room for a washer AND a dryer, so she has just the washer (cloth diapers… fabric softener residue on the drums of public washers makes them less absorbent so we use our own washers) and dries in the complex’ dryers.

    This happens all the time in this complex. I thought it was a pretty damn funny way to make people think twice about screwing with someones laundry… but of course, the complex dolts have already removed it.

      By the time they go in the dryer, they are probably cleaner than any clothes that are in there. Breastfed baby poop is liquid and thus dissolves.

    I once had someone start to take my clothes out of the dryer the moment it stopped…WHILE I WAS THERE!

    Because I despise the thought of strangers touching my freshly washed clothes, I always bring a book to the laundry mat and stay there, which means that once my washer stops, I’m right there to empty it, same with the dryer. One day this complete bitch came into the laundry mat a few minutes after I did, and it was a busy busy day. She was generally bitchy to everyone there. I got the dryer before she did (as my wash finished first and a dryer was surprisingly avaliable because someone else had just removed their stuff from it). I guess that ticked her off because she leapt across the damned room the moment it beeped to start pulling out my stuff.

    While I myself never touch other people’s clothes at the laundry mat, I generally understand if someone has left their stuff for hours on end, you take it out. But to be so damned impaitent as to remove it because I couldn’t cross the room as fast as you, and then dare to bitch at me when I ask you to stop touching my stuff…..boggles the mind.

    While ashley should have been there when her laundry was done, it is really rude and PASSIVE AGGRESSIVE to toss the clean stuff on a dirty shelf. Two wrongs don’t make a right.

    It should be policy to leave your basket next to the dryer so that if you’re late and people are in a hurry, they can put it in the nice clean basket instead of flinging it everywhere. That’s what we used to do in the dorms. (Yet some bitch stole my crew Tshirt!)

      What if the dirty shelf was the only shelf available? Would throwing the stuff on the dirty floor have been more acceptable? Or perhaps the trash can?

      It’s been a while since I’ve had to utilize public laundry facilities, but I seem to recall having stayed until my laundry was finished. That way I could just bitch-slap anyone who messed with my stuff. It might have been a bit tedious, but we had these things called books back then which helped to pass the time. Nowadays, I hear they have these gadgets called PSPs and IPods to keep you entertained virtually anywhere, but I’m kind of old, so don’t quote me on that, okay?

    Reminds of a time just before I got my own washer/dryer: Someone left a pile of dry clothes in our tiny laundry room for weeks. No one stole anything either, the pile just sat there quietly waiting for its owner. It was sad, a mystery… Did someone die on their way down to get them? Were they abducted by aliens? What in the hell happened? Since I got my own washer/dryer soon after, for all I know they are still there … I would go check but the laundry room brings back very bad memories for me. Memories you have all made so painfully clear…

      The fact that you’ve mentioned that you’re a proud owner of a washer & dryer three times in one-and-a-half paragraphs is hilarious. Congratulations on getting accepted for a Sears charge card! Were your purchases Maytags, perhaps? Now that you’re a big time washer/dryer combo owner I can see why you’re so far above visiting that laundry room in your apartment building. You certainly don’t want to congregate among the great unwashed (pun intended), now do you?

      Did I mention my new washer/dryer combo too many times? Sorry but my new washer/dryer condo has changed my life. I don’t know what I would do without my new washer/dryer combo.

    Hey I worked in this little neighborhood laundromat cleaning up at night. All I did was wash the washers, take the trash out, mop the floors and lock up. The place didn’t have a/c and there was a bar next door.The washers and dryers were frequently left unattended. Anyway this guy came in started the washer and left. Just as the washer stopped this lady came in went straight to the washer unloaded it to the dryer.Then she had waited for it to dry, folded it, loaded it into the baskets and left. A few minutes later, as I’m mopping the floor, the guy is back. I told him his wife had finished his laundry and left.
    He asked me what I talking about that he didn’t have a wife. Then he got mad at me for not watching his stuff. I was 16 then how was I to know.There were signs on every machine not to leave their laundy unattended.

    My roommates stared at me aghast when we first went to our dorm, and had the problem of people leaving their shit in the washers and dryers for extended periods of time, and I would just throw their shit on the ground. Sometimes, when in a good mood, I’d toss it onto the washer/dryer.

    See, I also timed myself so I was always in the room 15 minutes early IF I had to run back upstairs… why… because if someone else came in and was waiting before me, they’d get first dibs on the washer/dryer that I was originally waiting to re-use. It doesn’t matter if your clothes are in the damn thing; if you’re not there, you’ve lost your place in line.

    Nope to the second one. For all the “offender” knew she had gone out on a night on the town and forgotten her laundry was even in there. Was he, and the entire building, supposed to wait for her convenience. I think not. Stupid woman.

    People get really bent out of shape over this. I tried to be nice and wait for the neighbors to get their laundry out of the dryers but after 3 hours I just took it out. I actually dried all my stuff, went back downstairs and they still hadn’t retrieved their laundry. I’m a weirdo so I just put their shit back in the dryers after I took mine out. I’m nice like that.
