    and waiting on a washing machine, and one finally stops, but the owner isn't around, what do you do?

    Personally I don't like touching random people's underwear, doesn't matter if they're clean or not.

    I wait 15 minutes. If they're not back by then , I put their clothes in their laundry basket and then I use the machine.

    Once I did this to someone who hadn't taken their laundry out of the dryer after it was finished, it was the only one free and the laundry room was closing in 50 minutes, and when I came back 30 minutes later the cunt had taken my mostly-still-wet laundry out of the dryer and put it on the counter. icon_neutral.gif

    I once lived in an apt. complex. The laundry rooms each had multiple washers/dryers. I popped my stuff into a dryer once and started with only enough coins for 20 minutes. I knew I needed more time, so I ran back to my apt. - grabbed more coins and ran back to the laundry room. I hadn't been away more than five minutes and there were my clothes - out of the dryer - all wet and piled up on the counter. In my dryer were some other guy's clothes - - - using my coins! Other empty dryers stood ready for use. This guy wanted to use my dryer and my coins! So, I took his stuff out of my dryer and placed it in the laundry tub and ran cold water over them for a minute. Then, I put my stuff back into my dryer and restarted it - adding a few extra coins. Then, I waited for the idiot to come back looking for his clothes. We had a little exchange when he saw his crap in the laundry tub - and my clothes back in my dryer getting dry. How cheap could anybody be? It only cost about 50 cents to dry clothes then!

    I can one-up you. icon_lol.gif

    In basic training, I put my clothes in the dryer and went back to the barracks. When it was expected that my clothes were done, I went to retrieve my laundry. Someone's clothes were in there and mine were on the counter, wet. Enraged, I threw out the clothes in the dryer and threw them in a muddy puddle on the floor and put mine in the dryer. The guy acted like it was an empty dryer when he put his clothes in there.

    When my incident happened it was in my boyfriends apartment, and it was mostly his laundry with some of mine mixed in. He noted that the person who had the dryer before us had big blue ikea bags, which he'd never seen in the 10 years he'd lived there. If it were my laundry room I would wait to see the ikea bags and the same laundry again, cut a hole in the cunt's ikea bags, and toss his shit on the floor.

    Oh, see dee... I don't ever wash my clothes in a public laundry mat without knowing how many loads I have and how many quarters I'm going to need to wash and dry. Secondly, I don't use laundry mats without locking w/d machines. I still stay there and read a book until my clothes is done. I was fold all my clothes and hang what needs to be hung, and then I take it home. This turns females on; and makes most guys who figure I'm straight feel inadequate for being lazy asses when it comes to their own stuff.

    Yup. That's why I never leave my laundry unattended. Also, gotta watch out for thieves. One time, I went back up to my apartment to get more coins and someone jacked my mesh laundry bag when I got back. I mean, those things only cost a few bucks. A person has to be really lazy and/or cheap to steal something like that.

    Two more things I hated about communal laundry rooms..

    - Some mofos don't even use laundry soap. You can tell because the washing machine stinks so bad after they use it.

    - Some mofos pour cologne or perfume on their clothes, right before starting their dryer cycle. WTF. Use a damn dryer sheet if you want your clothes to smell good. Ughh.

    Yeah, and possibly dangerous depending on the forumulation of the cologne (e.g. alcohol content %, and other volatile flammables...)

    How stupid of them. You mixed it into a bottle of water with half a capful of Febreze.

    There are two types of people in this world - those that think it's rude to monopolize a washer or dryer by leaving uncollected laundry in it after a cycle's completed, and those that think it's rude when others remove that laundry. (Apply same logic to gym equipment.)

    P.S. - Successful people who normally wouldn't be caught dead in laundromats have similar if not greater entitlement issues - I observed similar behaviors awhile back by doctors, lawyers and bankers in my fancy Manhattan coop's shared laundry room.

    What would I do? Realize I'm in the wrong place because I don't do laundromats or shared laundry. Every place I have NEEDS to have private laundry.

    When that happened to me I stripped nude and stayed there and waited for all my clothes to wash/dry. Nude is the best way to do laundry. Being nude keeps folks away and you get all the dryers, no issues.

    Well, I'm just lucky to live in an area where it's not common to have to share laundry facilities. If I lived in the city, then it would probably be the opposite. Which is part of the reason I don't live in the city icon_wink.gif

    Laundry mat rules: Unattended means fair game.

    You can do the customary thing and wait 15 minutes and then after that it's considered a free dryer or washer.

    Who the hell leaves their belongings unattended in a laundry mat anyway? You're just asking for your stuff to be stolen. I know when I use to use them I stayed with my clothes and waited for the cycles to be done. I never left it unattended.
