Fun at the Laundromat...over and over

A few pair of black pants needed to be washed. The only pairs of black pants I had were ones just for house and yard. And all the black pants for wearing out and about were dirty. I folded the clean pants and piled the dirty pants. Unbeknownst to me, I took the clean pants to the laundry. grrr

When I locked the machine at the Laundromat, I realized they had been stacked. Laundromat washers are unforgiving. They will not open until you get your money's worth. So, I had to wait 25 minutes to go home and take the dirty ones back to wash them. I did discover two more pair of dirty black pants. Happy Dance!

While I was in the laundry, I read the flyers, you know, the ones about not putting crayons and such in the washer and dryer. One new flyer got my attention. It seems a church will be there on Tuesday at 6:15 with "quarters, detergent and smiles." I will be there with a huge bedspread and a load of darks. Early!

I won't need their detergent. I have allergies. Plus, I only use vinegar on my black pants. Vinegar does the job. Remember, I don't dig ditches.  I will be smiling because I can sure use quarters for those machines. Tuesday nights will definitely be laundry night for me.

Something is wrong with blogger because I cannot post comments on most blogs or reply to comments on my own blog. Plus, I feel so horrible. I have to take ten pills during five days to save my life. But, I feel like I am going to die anyway just from the pills.

So, I am here, still dizzy from my glasses with one lens. Some times, I have to take my glasses off the see. Sometimes, I have to put them on to see.

We are having our second week without rain and WITH sunshine all day.

I found two eggs today. This last week, I have broken four eggs. Gotta stop that.

Your turn
Have you ever used  a Laundromat? Got any crazy stories about a mistake like washing clean clothes? It does not have to be a laundry story.

  2. I used a laundromat for a couple years in college. I liked that it forced me to wash, dry, & fold everything right then & there. I have a bad habit now of forgetting I have clothes in the dryer at home. I hated lugging the clothes, basket, & supplies up & down two flights of stairs, the crowds, the $ spent, & the Spanish music blaring from the jukebox <-- I don't mean to sound discriminatory, I just wished I understood the lyrics. I don't miss it.

    In regards to your blogger issues, given anymore thought to Wordpress? I love it.

    1. tlc,
      It is a pain in the neck. Luckily, I can dry at home in the dryer or hang clothes on the line. I always have clothes to fold, just hanging around, waiting for me.

      I don't think I will go to WP.

  5. Regular Laundromat customer while I college(when I moved off campus). I use to frequent the Laundromat near my brother's house when we visited back in the 1990's. I once taught a man how to wash his clothes while on vacation in Canada in a Laundromat there. One of my more strange vacation stories. lolz

    1. slugmama,
      How I spent my summer vacation? Poor man.

      I have rarely used the laundry. This is not good!

  6. I used them when I first got married, but hated the thoughts of what might have been washed in the same machine I was going to use.
