I used to do it all the time when I had to share facilities.  But I am a huge laundry bitch and I don’t really care what others think.

But…. i go down and check on my stuff often because I then fear retaliation

Nope, I used to do this all the time. They can’t expect to leave their clothes in the dryer when there are only 2.

No that;s annoying and inconsiderate. Although things happen and you forget to watch the clock. I wouldn’t be upset if my stuff was DONE and someone took it out. I wouldn’t want to hold people up because I forgot.

BTW your complex should have more washers and dryers! lol That’s what happened when I lived in the dorm and our entire building (21 rooms which ranged from 1 to 3 occupants) shared two washers and two dryers. At least make it 5 washers and dryers lol!

Uhhhh I do that all the time. The real biotch is the person leaving their laundry in the dryer for hours on end!! I used to hate that when I was sharing laundry facilities!

I’ve had people take my laundry out of the dryer before it was even done, and that pisses me off, but if it’s been sitting there for hours I think that’s fair game.  I never leave my laundry in the machines for more than 5 minutes after it’s done because I know how annoying that is.  (3 washers & dryers for 53 units, so not enough.)

You are not wrong at all. I personally will give someone 5-10 minutes after their stuff has stopped before moving it.  There is no reason that you need to be held up because someone else isn’t paying attention.  That being said, I would rather not have anyone else touch my stuff, so I make it a point to be down within 5 minutes of the washer stopped and well before the dryer stops (incase it needs more time.)  

I would never put someone stuff on top of the dryers in my building, they are covered in dust, but I will put it either in an empty dryer or on the folding table that is down there. As long as you aren’t putting it in a dirty place, who cares… They aren’t being considerate of you, why should you worry about them…

I think its totally legit… although, I always feel bad doing it, so I usually fold theirs and leave it on top- as long as it’s not underroos.  But totally acceptable and not bitchy at all.
