So I'm doing laundry today and I thought about something I meant to ask the blogosphere (or facebook world) about a while back...
Side Note: I hate doing laundry. I live in an apartment and even though the laundry room is in the building, I still hate it. I wait until the absolute last minute to wash clothes and I surprise myself often with my seemingly never ending underwear drawer.
You all know I'm on my grown woman, buy own a home soon plan. There is NO motivation greater to buy a condo, than in-unit laundry. 908 W. Stoughton, oh how I miss thee.
Anyway, I just have a quick question:
What's more rude
1) Taking someone's wet clothes out of the washing machine because they took too long to take them out of the washing machine
2) Leaving your clothes in the washing machine for so long that someone would be prompted to take them out of the machine?
I realize they're both rude and defy apartment laundry room etiquette, but be honest, which is more rude? (Clearly I did one of these things and I just want to know how folks feel about it).
UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE
Ok, now that the judge and jury (by way of comments) are in I'll admit, I did number 2. I'm usually pretty good about getting back on time because of the bra incident in college. (Ask Les about it). This time, I set an alarm, but didn't hear it when it went off. I was maybe 15-20 minutes late, at MOST.
I'm not saying I'm confrontational and/or have a bad temper, but I waited for the person to come down the stairs so I could tell them how I feel about putting their "God knows where they've been" hands on my clean clothes. Then it occurred to me that they were just being laundry room friendly by helping me transfer my clothes from the washer to the dryer with a stop on the folding table. When that person didn't materialize after their load was finished... I returned their laundry room friendly favor. :)
