My laundry mat opens up at 6:30 am, so when my alarm goes off at 6 am I’m up and getting my stuff together to go do wash. I arrive at the laundry mat at 6:30 when they open the doors. I talk with the owner and his wife, since I've been a regular at this establishment for a year now. One great thing about being there so early is the place is empty so I get first pick of what washers I want to use. Another great thing is all my loads are done around the same time. As the morning gets later people start to trickle in. When my wash is done I start putting my clothes in the dryers, typical Sunday morning. This lady walks up to me.
LADY: Why are you just using the top dryers and not the bottom ones?
I look at her in puzzlement.
ME: Does it matter?
LADY: Yes it does matter. Hasn't anyone ever taught you Laundry Etiquette?
It’s way too early in the morning for someone to act like this, but me being the writer that I am, I listen. Never knew there was such a thing called Laundry Etiquette.
LADY: From your silence I take that as a no. Well Laundry Etiquette is being considerate to the other customers here. Since you took all the top dryers, we have to use the bottom dryers.
ME: This is a problem why?
LADY: Your not suppose to do that! This is what you do; you put your clothes on the top then go directly to the bottom. Top bottom, top bottom! Not top, top, top.
ME: Wow so much anger this early in the morning, looks like someone here didn't get laid last night.
The lady stays quiet.
ME: From you silence I’ll take that as a no.
