I personally would have probably done the same thing. You waited an hour and a half, that is beyond courteous. What else did she expect??

That’s obnoxious.  I say kudos to you for waiting a whole hour into your time slot – if you can’t be bothered to be home on time to take your laundry out when someone else needs the machine, you sure don’t get to be annoyed about them moving your laundry.  What nerve.

I would have and have done the same thing. I live in a building with one washer and dryer (no use schedule) and it’s rude to not keep track of time.

Yeah, you were behind kind. I also live in a two building apt complex, each with three stories,  We have two washers, and two dyers for the entire 24 apts. We have to to go down two flights of stairs into the other apt building and down another set to access it. We don’t have certain time slots its  a first come, first serve issue. I would never leave my laundry in a dyer or washer for that amount of time…thats just rude. Luckly we have had good luck with our neighbors being nice, and taking their stuff out on time, I sometimes have to wait 10-15 minutes but thats no big deal.

You’re far more patient that I am.  I would have taken her crap out of the washer and dryer way sooner than you did.

You did the same thing I would have.   1 1/2 hours is a very generous amount of time to wait for someone to get their laundry out of the machines.  The woman was probably mad because you called her out on her lack of courtesy.  

I live in an apartment building with 8 apartments and 1 washer and 2 dryers.  Talk about a nightmare :-

That is awful of her! I would have done the EXACT same thing if I were you!

I would have immediately taken her dry clothing out and folded it, put her wet laundry in the dryer, and then started my own laundry in the washer. The only reason I would fold it and dry her other load is because if I were to have something come up and be late for my laundry, I would hope that someone else would do the same for me.

She’s lucky. Some people would have thrown it outside wet.

@jlc3:  Whoa, you are SO nice! I would have just pulled out her wet laundry and put it on top of the machine straightaway. It’s part of apartment living – you need to watch your laundry and move it from the machines promptly. 

If you don’t, things might happen to the clothes. If she’s not willing to be on time and communicate that with you, why should you be willing to go way out of your way?

@jlc3:  That’s incredibly rude of her. You were so patient and using up your own laundry time waiting. FH does our laundry and I know he wouldn’t be as patient! He wouldn’t care about any backlash since he doesn’t take crap from anybody, haha.

@jlc3:  Sure. She’d have had to do it herself, so she’d have the money to give back to me.
