I'm kinda miffed right now. It may sound trivial to some but who cares. I am assigned to do laundry on certain days. It is the custom in my apartment building. Though laundry is free, we choose to do our washing at certain times. Tonight is my night. I get my laundry and clothes soap all organized. When I get to the laundry room , someone else has broken the rule. What! How rude, I think. It is my turn. I don't ever infringe on someone elses laundry time. I feel like pulling out the laundry offenders clothes , and shoving them aside. But me being the person that I am, I wait patiently. I'm now 1/2 hour behind my scheduled time. I'm ready to go and remove the laundry bandits clothes from the machine. When I get to the laundry room, it is empty of the laundry bandit and any evidence of strange articles of clothing.. Whew! Lucky for the stranger who has cut into my laundry time. I was about ready to pull all the clothing from the machine and leave a nasty note. But although it has set me back 45 minutes, I'm still in good shape to get my washing done before my time is up. The thing that really bothers me is that it is not the first time this has happened. Oh the joys of living in an apartment , and having to share laundry services. Next time this happens , I'm thinking I will have to aggressive and take the culprits clothes from the laundry machines. Or not. I'm such a chicken. What would you do.
