That’s both rude AND disgusting. It’s par for the course in NYC unless you watch it like a hawk, but the laundromats here are always full. If the rest of the dryers were open – that’s just bizarre and kind of creepy. I’d wash my stuff again!

Could someone have gone and taken their stuff out of the washers between when you and him were there so they might have been full when he went?

It is really weird if they were all open though.

Par for the course in an apartment complex. If you don’t want your stuff touched, you have to stay there and watch it.

They’re prob. just cheap and don’t want to pay for the machine so they stole yours. I’d def. wash it all again – lord knows what they touched & wait to see who comes back – so they don’t steal your clothes!!

I would not be ok with that either!  That is completely rude to go touching someone else’s personal belongings when EVERY other machine is open.  Come on now!

EWWWWW

Totally not ok. I”d be inclined to not agree with you IF the other machines weren’t empty, though. CUz i know i’d pull stuff out if it was done and the place was packed. But if it’s empty, why do that?! WHy touch someone’s stuff?!?!

Wow that’s freaking weird.  I have dealt with plenty of bad laundry room behavior for the past several years (three washers and dryers per dorm of a hundred students–you know, people with lackluster cleanliness standards, ineptitude when it comes to household chores, and a general lack of concern for their fellow dormmates’ well-being anyway–and usually some of those washers and dryers are broken), so I know how you feel.  I got aggravated and left angry notes a lot too!

I can definitely relate. When I lived in an apartment with shared laundry facilities, I always had people taking my clothes out of the washers. On the one hand, the building was full of old ladies, so I didn’t have to be concerned about a creepy guy touching my delicates, but STILL, my panties are in there! Don’t touch! I hated when people did this.

I especially hated it because there were only a few washers, and my unit was next to the laundry on my floor, so I could hear when the wash cycle ended. These old ladies would pounce within like 5 minutes! And if I had more than one load that I’d planned to do I was screwed because they’d taken the washer! Grrr!

I also think it’s just the way of it when you’re sharing washers and dryers, but I thought I’d throw a little story of mine out there. In college I was always meticulous about the timing of the washer and dryer. My watch was regularly synchronized to the timer on them (it was actually a little sad) and I always headed down 30 seconds before it was done. Once I went down and there was a guy already taking my stuff out of the dryer. It was hot and everything. I looked at him. He looked at me. And ooohhhh the look of discomfort on his face….it was pure validation.
