Belated blogtalkers


The blogtalkers question for this week wasn't really a discussion starter for me,
Tell me about your most unusual laundromat experience. Have you ever, or would you ever leave your laundry unattended at a laundromat? What would you do if it wasn’t there when you came back?
I've never used a laundromat... It's somewhat out of my experience, and though I could conceptualise with regards to the mights and perhaps, I am lacking in motivation, sorry folks...

It's cos I'm in Church fete season, so off to stuff my offspring with ice-cream and look vicarly, whatever that means.

Perhaps tomorrow's question will inspire me to write at great length...

Las Vegas, just off the strip near downtown, 7 p.m. on a hot August night: I walk into a deserted laundromat. It looks pretty clean. I choose a machine and start loading my clothes in. The door opens. A man comes enters. He is staggering a bit, definitely scruffy-looking, and smells none too pleasant from clear across the room. I hesitate, wondering if I still want to stay. He puts clothes in the last machine, furthest from the door. He adds soap. He pulls his shirt from over his head and tosses it into the machine. He sits on a chair, removes his shoes and socks, and tosses the socks into the machine. HE stands and begins to unbuckle his belt ... I pulled my clothes from the washer and left.

But suppose you left your clothes at a laundromat unattended and when you came back somebody had washed them for you. Do we have a good samaritan or is somebody waiting to be paid?

I used a laundromat once. Man was it boring. Not that washing clothes is exciting anyway, but it seems to take on whole new levels of "I'd rather be doing something else" when you're at a laundromat.
